I am continuously fascinated and confused by institutionalized party affiliates. I do not understand them. The Democratic Party was the first to come on the scene in 1828 followed by the Republican Party in 1854. So who represented the collective thoughts of the people before the establishment of the two-party system? No one. Believe it or not, the citizens of this country prior to 1820 actually followed politics and made individual decisions on individual issues as independents without the help of anyone.
Someday, hopefully sooner than later, the people of this country will rediscover a simple truth. It is the freedom to think as an individual that made this country the richest and freest on this planet. It’s called individual achievement. I personally despise both the Democrats and Republicans with equal enthusiasm. That means I do not like President Obama, I do not like George Bush Jr., I do not like Bill Clinton, I do not like George Bush Sr., Ronald Regan, Jimmy Carter, Gerald Ford, Richard Nixon, or Lyndon Johnson. John F. Kennedy was the last constitutional president of the United States.
How many of you know that Lyndon Johnson was air born when Kennedy was killed? Also air born at that time were planes loaded with United States battle troops who were prepared to, upon Lyndon Johnson’s order, land in major cities across the country to declare martial law in order to stop any who recognized the coup for what it was.
You people need to learn who your enemies are. Democrat, it is not your Republican neighbor. Republican, it is not your Democrat neighbor. The problem is your ignorance. Here is a glimpse of your true enemies through the eyes of President Kennedy. The following is an excerpt from John F. Kennedy’s speech delivered April 27, 1961 to the American Newspaper Publishers Association:
“The very word “secrecy” is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it. Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating its arbitrary restrictions. Even today, there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it. And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment. That I do not intend to permit to the extent that it is in my control. And no official of my Administration, whether his rank is high or low, civilian or military, should interpret my words here tonight as an excuse to censor the news, to stifle dissent, to cover up our mistakes or to withhold from the press and the public the facts they deserve to know.
But I do ask every publisher, every editor, and every newsman in the nation to reexamine his own standards, and to recognize the nature of our country’s peril. In time of war, the government and the press have customarily joined in an effort based largely on self-discipline, to prevent unauthorized disclosures to the enemy. In time of “clear and present danger,” the courts have held that even the privileged rights of the First Amendment must yield to the public’s need for national security.”

The Republicans and the Democrats following the murder of President Kennedy began bringing in administrations, first from the radical left and then from the radical right, but both with the same agenda and that is the theft of our wealth and the destruction of our freedom. Have we not come to the point wherein we are involved in perpetual war for perpetual peace (perpetual clear and present danger)? And have we not been stripped of our freedoms and liberties as a consequence (The Patriot Act)? Was this not what President Kennedy was trying to warn us about?
Those of you out there who continue to staunchly defend the Republicans and the Democrats are demonstrating one of the lowest forms of human thought and that is blind faith, which is the ability to believe in something that you know cannot be real. What will it take for you to see the muddy elephant fornicating with the muddy donkey in your living room? Do they have to come and do it on your lap?
The left-right paradigm must be broken if we are ever to see freedom and prosperity in our country again. That means Democrats and Republicans alike are going to have to break away from their beloved political parties. I know it’s going to be hard; thinking for oneself can at times seem a difficult task, but failure to do so can only result in tyranny and slavery.
When I vote, I won’t be voting anyone in, but I will be trying to vote every incumbent out. If I have to vote for a Democrat or a Republican to accomplish this I will do so. The only way you can hurt the modern politician is to cut short his or her stay in Washington D.C. as the longer they stay the more political power they gain to use to stick the dagger in your back. This coupled with the fact that the longer they stay the higher their pay grade, thus the more we have to pay for their retirement package, is why we have to vote the incumbents out until they start listening to us. (Wouldn’t it be nice if you and I, after only two years on the job, could retire at full salary with full benefits?)
People, if we do not come together as one and start attacking this problem as individual free thinkers, we are doomed.
