IT’S US AGAINST THEM TYRANNY KNOWS NO PARTY
8/11/2012 6:16 AM
When Republicans and Democrats alike are actively stripping
our most fundamental rights from us, how can we possibly continue to argue “my
side is better than yours” when clearly BOTH sides are tyrannical beasts focused
only on securing their own power?
Before we go farther, I want you the reader to understand
that I am not advocating a third party. Nor am I advocating for or against
Democrats or Republicans. I honestly don’t think I have ANY affiliation anymore,
as both sides have become the most dastardly villains witnessed in all of
American history. The hell with parties, they are both by and large corrupt to
their very core. Their goal is not the protection of liberty and the
Constitution, but rather the endless accumulation of power and wealth. And this
dastardly accumulation knows no bounds.
As a movement we managed to “take the House”, but we did so
by compromising the very values we set out to protect. Rather than filling the
halls of Congress with public SERVANTS who would take their oath to protect and
defend the Constitution seriously; we chose to believe the pundits who told us
we had to keep the “establishment” types in office, because only a Republican
majority, garnered at any cost, could save us. We gambled and lost.
We would do well to remember why we threw the last Republican
congress out in the first place. The 109th Congress spent like drunken sailors,
passed absolutely and unequivocally unconstitutional legislation, and was every
bit as corrupt as the Democrats we later threw out in 2010. So what has changed?
NOT A DAMN THING.
We still have establishment Republicans and Democrats. We
still have John Boehner, and all his tears, begging to raise the debt ceiling.
We still have Paul Ryan pitching a much ballyhooed fiscal plan that, when you
read the fine print, only differs from Obama’s completely irresponsible spending
plan by a very small margin. We still have Mitch McConnell and Harry Reid
offering up deals that end the Senate’s constitutionally mandated duties and
feed the growing beast of executive powers. We still have Nancy Pelosi getting
rich off insider information. We still have so called “Tea Party Caucus” members
declaring that standing on the Constitution is a losing battle. And now we are
contemplating a new batch of Congressional and Senatorial candidates, some of
whom actively participated in the very same graft that you and I decry every
day. But somehow we keep deluding ourselves into thinking all that graft,
corruption and dirty deals are OK or at least less dangerous when they have an R
behind their name. BALONEY!
It comes down to this, party affiliation means nothing. No
longer are the issues a question of Democrat versus Republican. Rather, we face
an issue of US AGAINST THEM, because if there is anything I have learned in the
last three years it is that NO PARTY CAN BE TRUSTED. Both are power hungry and
will stop at nothing to get their way. I have had some of the most powerful men
in Congress lie to my face in an effort to win my support; and had those same
men try to crush and discredit me when I refused to support them. I have
witnessed Republicans, who claim to stand on the side of Freedom overwhelmingly
pass legislation that revokes Habeas Corpus and the Posse Comitatus Act. I have
seen Democrats who are claim to stand on the side of freedom sponsor legislation
that gives the administration the authority to strip citizens, yes even natural
born citizens, of their American citizenship based on suspicion and not the fair
trial guaranteed by the Constitution.
THE CHOICE WE NOW FACE IN AMERICA IS ONE OF LIBERTY VERSUS
If we mean to survive, we must stop pulling the R or the D
lever out of some misguided sense of loyalty. Rather we must look at each and
every candidate on an individual basis. STOP paying attention to who the media
and the party tells you CAN win and START paying attention to who YOU believe
SHOULD win. See how they have voted in the past. Examine whether the candidate
has a record of voting core principles or if the candidate instead votes in
whichever manner is politically expedient enough to allow him or her to continue
feeding at the trough of political benefits. Pay attention to which candidates
would willingly trample the constitution and actively trade YOUR liberty for a
misguided sense of security.
As God is my witness, I honestly no longer care whether you
or anyone else is a Democrat or Republican. I care that Americans know their
rights and vote for the person who has a record of protecting those rights.
For heaven’s sake PAY ATTENTION. Our future is at stake. Our
children’s future is at stake. Would you have them burdened with trillions of
dollars that can never be repaid? Would you have their speech stifled for fear
they become labeled political dissidents and shipped silently in the night to
unknown holding cell?
WILL YOU TRADE LIBERTY FOR SECURITY? OR WILL YOU STAND FOR
PRINCIPLES OVER POLITICS?
THINK! THEN VOTE!

Re: IT’S US AGAINST THEM TYRANNY KNOWS NO PARTY
I could not agree more. The majority of politicians care nothing about their constituents except for those that can help them rise in power or fill their bank accounts. I am so discusted with our politicians, from local to state to national, that I do not have a positive outlook for our future. I constantly tell my teenage kids to enjoy their school years while they can, because the way our government is taking away our liberties a little at a time, by the time they graduate from college it is going to be worse. When our government starts taking away our small simple freedoms, such as seatbelt laws. If the politicians that make up these laws think we are too dumb to make a simple choice as this, then we can only imagine what they will think of next. One last comment, I am always stifled when I see or hear something about our troops over in Iraq or Afghanistan fighting for our freedoms, If they are over there fighting for OUR FREEDOM, then why do we keep losing more and more freedoms? I had a brother that was sent to Iraq for a year, came home a little different, killed himself a couple or so years later.
