Of Democrats and Republicans and Any Difference

 

The two party system has failed the people of the United States yet many are unable to see this. This problem is partly responsible for the election of President Trump and the other half of the problem was represented perfectly by Hillary Clinton. That was what made the last election so very important. Hillary Clinton represented the idea that everything was working satisfactorily while Donald Trump represented change for the sake of repairing the problems in Washington. Looking at the election through this filter and it becomes obvious why the election turned out the way it did. The interesting thing is that the people have not given up on the two parties or the idea of their representing two separate choices and this election finally offered a choice. The problem does not exist at the local level as at this point the two parties are true to their core constituencies, one appealing to the more rural people and the other to the city dwellers. But as one rises in the two parties, they go through a metamorphosis or they will fail at the State-wide or National level. At these points, one need simply serve the future as it is painted by the elite leadership of both parties, and they actually agree. The core leadership at the national level of both parties and their representatives in Congress and in the White House are big government, progressive, centralized power, influence peddlers. This is the reason that President Trump is so viscerally hated by the leadership of both parties. This was part of the reason why the Diversity Visa Program continued under differing names from the 1970’s and is still up and running today. Part of the proof was the recent Manhattan terrorist attack which was carried out by a person who arrived in 2010 under this program from Uzbekistan.

 

Many ask how long it has been that the American public has, in reality, had no real choice for President. The answer becomes obvious when one traces the race for the Presidency since Ronald Reagan, the last President where the people had a choice until this past election. We had President George H. W. Bush, William Jefferson Clinton, George W. Bush, Barrack Obama, and in this past election, the choice was planned on being Hillary Clinton against Jeb Bush. Is anyone getting the picture here? Donald Trump won the Republican primary system exactly because he was somebody everyone could recognize and felt they knew who appeared to be the only real anti-candidate, the outsider who was anything but a normative politician. Trump represented a change if you believed what he was saying. What was more surprising than what he was saying was that once elected he started doing what he had promised; proof he was not a normative politician. Let us look into how the system actually works.

A person enters politics at the local level. Here they are trained on the buzzwords and how to present themselves to win the love and support of a majority of the people in their area. As they climb the ladder they modify their original wordings some small amount to gratify a larger audience, but their core message remains the same. Their actions, on the other hand, start to transform or they remain at the local level. The more one rises in the ranks, the more they become beholden to people in the major metropolises and the less they care about the individual voter. Their interests change and they start to serve different masters. These masters are the main contributors to both parties, which leads both parties to represent the same big moneyed interests as the same moneyed interests are buying the influence of both parties. By the time they make it to Washington D.C., the politician has been transformed, mostly, to a corporate sponsored tool or they become outcasts who will be rejected by their party and should they continue to win there are other ways or pushing them aside. Take Oklahoma’s First District Representative Jim Bridenstine, a real upstart who loyally represents the people and has had the party try and unseat him in every primary since he won the seat. They have failed, as his electorate is awake. The system still works as Jim Bridenstine has been nominated by President Trump to be the new top man at NASA, and he would be a perfect fit even if Tulsa Oklahoma would be losing a great Representative. That is the other means of keeping the Congress controlled, give the odd candidate who cannot be defeated their dream job, but only after they have served long enough to have the golden-parachute retirement guaranteed all the members of the Congressional Societal Group.

 

This thinning of the herd such that only the big government progressives make their way to Washington D.C. is done by plans and methods and by the money. Where the Congress passes legislation every few years presumably to take the money out of politics, they actually only rearrange the deck chairs on the Titanic and everything continues steaming full-speed for the iceberg. Each new refreshing of the way the money must flow to reach the candidates serves only one purpose, to make it appear that this money is further away from the candidates and to obscure the truth that they have all largely been bought and paid for by the same money. It is as close as one can get to their being one large pile of cash and everybody is at the same feeding trough being paid by the same people to complete their preferred legislation and forget the small people who elected them. Once we all realize this it is easier to understand such actions as the recent antics of Senator John McCain and company or the call by Chuck Schumer for President Trump to do something to make the vetting of people immigrating to the United States more selective after blocking every proposed change to the system President Trump has already proposed. Schumer was simply grandstanding for the media such that he was on record opposing allowing letting terrorists into the country when he really is partially responsible just as are all the others for the current system. Schumer, the Democrat Representative from New York, was actually the person who sponsored the Diversity Visa Program under which the terrorist entered the country, and that legislation was signed into law by Republican President George H. W. Bush in 1990. There was your bipartisan effort to undercut the unity of the country by bringing in hundreds of thousands leading to millions of people with backgrounds completely foreign to the Judeo-Christian base of the United States. This is one of the main objectives of the moneyed interests as this provides them with inexpensive labor and an easily manipulated electorate.

 

The other main problem is that these moneyed interests mostly are not just people interested in the success of the United States, just the opposite. Many of these people are international in nature and have only a world government as their preferred goal. There are a few problems which prevent their success in their efforts; the United States is the biggest of these problems. The one name when it comes to politics and money almost everybody can recognize is also the best person to prove of what we speak. That person is George Soros who stated in his book ‘The Age of Fallibility: The Consequences of the War on Terror’ (2006), “The main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the United States.” We have provided a video of George Soros discussing his book below. He is far from the only internationalist who believes that the United States is preventing any progress towards a World Governance which was the original idea behind allowing any government so choosing to join the United Nations. This was the idea behind the Common Market and the European Union it eventually produced. Other efforts in this general arena of a World Governance include but are not limited to, the World Courts in Geneva, the World Trade Organization, World Health Organization, World Bank, International Atomic Energy Agency, INTERPOL and for a list of other international agencies and organization one can look here. As is obvious, the world has been either tied into large units or covered universally by subjects. Another side to these efforts would be to start the unification projects by unifying many of the similar NGO’s and Agencies into one central agency for each general area rather than the splintering which has been the practice. Looking over the list of international agencies one could surmise that in some instances, these are simply divisive tactic or, even more simply, they are nothing more than a means to provide employment for far too many people getting their higher degrees by choosing the world crusade which they desire to follow. If you desire to save the world through ecological awareness, very soon you will find that you would be best served to choose a specific ecological identity such as saving a specific species such as the group Save the Beluga Whales and have them pay for your Doctoral Thesis on the need to protect Beluga Whales which would lead to your being employed and that would be your niche. More generally, there is a group which oversees a plethora of save this species or save that species and it is the Defenders of Wildlife. The same is true of almost any special interest group you can think of, and in some cases, it appears more like whatever you can invent. Perhaps we should start our own NGO and call it, The Lost Causes Nobody Thought to Cover and we could collect donations for all the causes which fell through the cracks and anybody with an agency of any sort could list with us and share our financial tools and maybe even receive some money from the central group, though much of that money would go to pay for lobbyists and pay the staff as it would largely be an employment agency matching people to their respective group for their cause.

 

 
These groups represent the desired end of our world as we know it. Much of the support many of these organizations get through volunteering and fund-raising comes from people who honestly care and want a better world. Still, if on every last one of these fund-raising efforts they would place the idea that the group supports a one world government such as the United Nations where everyone were to become citizens of the world, the citizens of the world would stop their support, or at least we would hope that would be the case. If the majority of people in the free world actually believe that a world government would be a good idea, then the world is in worse shape than we thought. Just for a moment, we would not ask you try this any longer than that, think of how problems, such as the pothole, which has blown three of your tires upon hitting it on your way to work this past month, would get resolved by a world governance. Did you feel the agony of paperwork and other technicalities which would be required to fill a single pothole? There would be environmental impact studies required and feasibility studies followed by a committee to decide on the best means and methods submitting the five best plans for repairing the pothole. Then somebody would demand that a study be done on the probability of repeat potholes on your stretch of road and whether repaving might be an even better option. After probably three to five years of studies and research, the government would send a large dump truck and a flag waver and streaming tape all to mark the work area so the crew would be safe while repairing the pothole. The union demanded twelve-man crew would be there with eleven men observing one guy shoveling tar and asphalt into your pothole which had grown over the year and a half of studying it. Then, after a whole day or two the pothole would be finished and everything would return to normal except there might be a new pothole which, of course, could not have been repaired by this crew as they were not assigned to that pothole which, incredibly, is all the way in the next block, they cannot be expected to work on that pothole without the necessary paperwork and studies and procedures being followed.

 

The good news is that the United States is not alone in resisting the idea of a single world government. There are a few other nations such as Great Britain as was evidenced by the BREXIT vote to leave the European Union. You will have noticed that the leading politicians have mostly tried to play down the people’s vote and remain in the European Union. Also remaining outside of the European Union are, in alphabetical order, Albania, Armenia. Belarus, Gibraltar, Iceland, Kosovo, Lichtenstein, Macedonia, Norway, Russian Federation, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, and Vatican City State. Another nation which stands against any one-world plans is Israel. The Islamic World is actually in favor of a single world government providing Islam gets to be that power and they see the one world government being called the Caliphate. The absolutely frightening reality is there are leaders in the world willing to make that sacrifice just to reach their goal of one-world governance. As John Lennon put his dreams of a one-world governance in his song Imagine where in it he envisions a world where: “Imagine there’s no countries, It isn’t hard to do, Nothing to kill or die for, And no religion, too, Imagine all the people, Living life in peace.” Of course he goes full tilt communist crazy in a later verse stating; “Imagine no possessions, I wonder if you can, No need for greed or hunger, A brotherhood of man, Imagine all the people, Sharing all the world. Sure, right John, wherever you are, we tried that and the result was everyone had nothing while the select few had everything they ever desired. We have seen the results of this system in the Soviet Union, North Korea and Venezuela and none of these give any appearance of being enviable.

Anyway, the elites of both parties desire centralized power with them ruling that governance. President Trump disagrees with this vision politically despite being one of the preferred people within the system himself. President Trump is the one who can begin the struggle to drain the swamp, as it has been put. He has provided a great service towards that end already by exposing the media for their ‘Fake News’ Stories and how they have lied consistently in favor of the privileged few, the power and moneyed people. He has thrown the covers off and revealed the naked truth, the people have been being fed a bunch of garbage and that the mainstream media has been complicit in providing exactly what was ordered. Climate Change meant that people would have to surrender driving more than two-hundred miles per day in their electric car. Never mind that after five to seven years an entirely new set of batteries will be required which will cost almost as much as the car’s original price. Government will mandate that ethanol be mixed into your gasoline which at a certain point will mean older vehicles will no longer run on the provided fuel mixture. Ignore the fact that ethanol mandates have made many farmers switch their wheat fields to growing corn, which requires irrigation and fertilizers, and that we are now burning a goodly percentage of our food crop in our car engines. This is absolutely not a sustainable development. President Trump attempted to remove the coming increases of ethanol into the gasoline mixture only to have the Congress reinstate the mandate through some resolution where this instruction to the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy. This was done to satisfy the ethanol lobby, a very powerful lobby which uses the Iowa primary caucuses as their bludgeon with which to threaten politics. This lobby is supported by some very deep pockets which include Archer Daniels Midland (ADM), Cargill and three international companies from outside the United States of Bunge (Founded in the Netherlands in 1818), Glencore International (Anglo-Swiss multinational) and Louis Dreyfus (French company founded in 1851). Also in on the lobbying are DuPont and Monsanto plus others not mentioned. Corn for ethanol has replaced wheat and corn for human consumption as the number one crop in the United States, has driven up the price of feed for cattle, and is pressing the prices of the entirety of food in direct jeopardy. Making the entire concept even worse is that gasoline ethanol mixtures not only produce lower miles per gallon but are harmful to the engines literally burning these fuels. The constant creep of more ethanol blended into the fuel also forces the vehicle manufacturers to redesign their engines just to accommodate these fuels. Are these politicians thinking of the people or their campaign pockets when they make such decisions?

What Did You Expect From Candidate O’Perfect

The promise was “Hope and Change” and the rallying cry that made just as much sense, “Yes, We Can!” and was just as vague and amorphous and undefined as was everything in the Candidate O’Perfect’s past. Check all his brilliant articles he had to have written to be made editor of the Harvard Law Review. But no, none are able to be seen yet he was the editor by some mysterious rite of passage as if such was required for some potential future, some arranged, bought and paid for future where he would be a good front man and allow his strings to be pulled, his image and accomplishments massaged so he would appear bright and shining and the all-around perfected candidate; he became candidate O’Perfect. O’Perfect attended Occidental College, a small urban Los Angeles college, from 1979 to 1980 without leaving any records of attendance, grades or many people who saw him in classes or even any footprints in the soft grass after a rain because the grooming of Candidate O’Perfect must never receive a blemish or have a speck of lint show on his perfectly tailored suits as such would be as a stain on the record. Next Candidate O’Perfect attended Columbia University in New York, New York from 1980 to 1983, where he received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science which was oh so perfect and totally free of any blemish for nothing was too good for the grooming of Candidate O’Perfect. We suspect the Candidate O’Perfect actually was simply student normal out enjoying the freedoms and liberties which many students at college avail themselves of and probably was invited or simply attended some event where he either was invited to speak or took an opportunity to speak and the right set of people hears him and that was actually when Candidate O’Perfect was born. First they assured that he would receive his degree with sufficient class standing.

 

Stage two was the seasoning of Candidate O’Perfect getting him the required bonafides by arranging his activities as a community organizer. He organized and he organized until he had been seasoned sufficiently and aged like a fine Champaign, or was that campaign. Now came the time for the impressive Ivy League replete with Blazer and only the finest was appropriate for our seasoned, bonafide, polished Candidate O’Perfect; so it was off to old Boston town to Harvard he did go. As Candidate O’Perfect was breezing through Harvard he found himself listed as the editor of the Harvard Law Review without any arduous efforts and even managed to continue in that position with an equally passive approach to equally passive demands for which he received much kudos as after all, was he not Candidate O’Perfect? Soon Candidate O’Perfect received his degree with a major of Constitutional Law, the perfect degree to compliment his Bachelor Degree in Political Science and his path appeared to be set if only he avoided the kind of slips or falls which might put a dent in his otherwise perfect and carefully crafted record which contained just the right credentials as the upholder and valiant fighter for the under-privileged, decorated as the editor for the premier Law Review in the land and the undergraduate work and rights record paired with a clean and lean appearance with perfect diction, warm personality, fitting message and adaptable accent for every occasion with just the right casualness while showing a side that was erudite but not cavalier or overbearing as that would detract from the image of pure adaptability which was evident in every appearance of Candidate O’Perfect and the record of invincibility only grew with each elected office chosen carefully such that it served well and fit with the mystique and mastery of every part of candidacy, or at least the election campaigning and the rest only served well as long as there was no inspection, but to do so would reveal your craven and racist desires to despoil the crafting Candidate O’Perfect, a record deserving of his story.

 

All was in place and the fully flushed out and shiny young looking, perfectly crafted and with just the right record without blemish except for his deficiency of a complete voting record and the large number of voting “present” on almost every contentious legislation where the people were divided and division belonged in a math course and should not touch the records of Candidate O’Perfect. The powers and crafter behind Candidate O’Perfect decided that allowing him to compile a longer record would give him time for his votes of “present” to probably catch up with him; so they struck while the irons were hot and he was thrust against the candidate claiming that first of being elected a woman whose entire career was spent in and about politics, the governor’s mansion in Arkansas and the White House and a stint in the Senate. Yet Candidate O’Perfect offered just as exciting a first if elected as his father was a native from Kenyan citizen and his mother a citizen of the United States, Caucasian and extreme leftist but Candidate O’Perfect had a sufficiently dark appearance and was married to a woman who left no doubt of his leanings and the camera is the final judge of all facts, thus he was a man of color; making his title of Candidate O’Perfect even more perfect.

 

Thus the first President of Color was born and all the detractions slowly fell silent as they appeared to be all the more the desperate efforts of the crazy wing of the political spectrum which are found at all the extremes of the edges of the political universe. The campaign between the old guard represented by Hilary Clinton against the young, vibrant, well spoken, personable and proves far more electable than the fated Ms. Clinton, the fated, dated, jaded, and quite hated sufficiently while the Candidate O’Perfect simply pooh-poohed as he breezed on towards the convention. Candidate O’Perfect was assaulted with questions about his relations with the Reverend White, but our Candidate O’Perfect simply tossed his head, glared at the original questioner and waved the whole problem aside and upon further questioning simply shoved the Reverend White under the bus and was never seen again, as should a media reporter ever pose such a request, the reporter gets the ‘glaring stare’ which could freeze the everglades in August and then all move on as one reporter nurses his wounds possibly proud of his wounds as they were given by the best; they were given by the Candidate O’Perfect. With the Reverend White firmly stowed under the bus, the Candidate O’Perfect continued waving away unhelpful question after question, occasionally throwing a tantrum before tossing another question after another. There were the questions about his childhood and whether he is an American by birth, how he became editor of the Harvard Law Review without writing any articles any search could produce; Candidate O’Perfect with his official record this and his perfect record that; and all them he handles with glib retorts and the media reveled in his perceived brilliance. It appeared that Candidate O’Perfect was their man through unto the end and through the nominating and vetting process he sliced as if chosen by a higher power.

 

As if a Hollywood story he swept through the campaign making a mockery of his opponent often seeming to write the media reviews of his campaign stops and debate performances. Nothing was out of bounds and nobody cared to stand between Candidate O’Perfect and his destiny, a destiny writ large across the skies, certainly this would be a match made in Heaven, Candidate O’Perfect drew closer and closer to election day and the only question on all the correct people’s minds was by how much he could win and would this be a complete shutout. Election Day came and went and the fairytale story would indeed have a happy ending and the land did rejoice the election of Candidate O’Perfect and the term of President O’Perfect was soon to begin. His victory speech had all the trappings at Grant Park in his home city of Chicago, Illinois, on November 4, 2008, before an estimated crowd of 240,000 and viewed on television and the Internet by millions of people around the globe. President O’Perfect was not quite yet in the Oval Office but who cared about such trivialities at such a historic time. President O’Perfect’s meteoric ride had climaxed at its perfect end, and how could it have ended any differently, Candidate O’Perfect to President O’Perfect, it had that magical ring and the whole world was lain out before him like a fated oyster just waiting for him to produce its perfect pearl; no-one could hardly wait for the coronation ceremony and the crowning of President O’Perfect which would welcome us to that world of promise he swirled the audience and they swooned with victory speech which came to a crescendo as he finished at such a high note with his closing words,

The journey will be difficult. The road will be long. I face this challenge with profound humility, and knowledge of my own limitations. But I also face it with limitless faith in the capacity of the American people. Because if we are willing to work for it, and fight for it, and believe in it, then I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on Earth. This was the moment – this was the time – when we came together to remake this great nation so that it may always reflect our very best selves, and our highest ideals. Thank you, God Bless you, and may God Bless the United States of America.

Now we await the words which can only be able to lift us here for President O’Perfect knew the words to say and the way to say them; surely we would all be drunk on his promises by the time they place the crown upon his head and officially name him President O’Perfect, our time has come angel who will heal our stricken world. He gave us hope all the way back on Super Tuesday but we remember Candidate O’Perfect’s words for they still ring in our ears and hearts, those words, “You see, the challenges we face will not be solved with one meeting in one night. Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek. We are the hope.” And we replied at his every pause with “Yes We Can!”

 

Certainly his inaugural speech will be the best speech ever delivered. And as President O’Perfect reached his closing remarks we awaited another ending above all speeches ever given, and we waited and his words flowed melodically as he stated his ending words,

So let us mark this day with remembrance of who we are and how far we have traveled. In the year of America’s birth, in the coldest of months, a small band of patriots huddled by dying campfires on the shores of an icy river. The capital was abandoned. The enemy was advancing. The snow was stained with blood. At the moment when the outcome of our revolution was most in doubt, the father of our nation ordered these words to be read to the people:
“Let it be told to the future world…that in the depth of winter, when nothing but hope and virtue could survive… that the city and the country, alarmed at one common danger, came forth to meet [it].”
America: In the face of our common dangers, in this winter of our hardship, let us remember these timeless words. With hope and virtue, let us brave once more the icy currents, and endure what storms may come. Let it be said by our children’s children that when we were tested we refused to let this journey end, that we did not turn back nor did we falter; and with eyes fixed on the horizon and God’s grace upon us, we carried forth that great gift of freedom and delivered it safely to future generations.

 

That was his memorable finale? Quoting some long dead guy from the dead of winter, whatever does all that mean? Could we have been wrong and he really is no different than all those other politicians who lift us with great hope and then when the time comes to strike hard a blow at the institutions, the inequalities. What happened to the heal the Earth and the words which could move mountains of supporters? Could we have been deceived, could we have trusted a charlatan, a pretender, a man who really is not Yes We Can but more of a Yes I Will brought to us by craftiness and deceits? Where do we go if his delivery of a new age crafted around our hopes and dreams was a mirage all along? I fear we have been misled and taken to a dangerous place where our own dreams and aspirations were used to sneak a puppet whose masters we do not know into the most powerful office in the world? What can we do to undo this farce? But by the time for reelection came the words were more practical and the other choice was no choice, what could we do> We had to support him and hope that now when President O’Perfect no longer need worry about reelections he can be his own man, the man we knew at the beginning, the man who plucked our heartstrings with a melodic swansong would return and repair everything and be the man we knew he could be. But perhaps President O’Perfect was all hype, glitz and glamour, a show for public consumption meant to catch our greatest hopes and play on our greatest fears, worst guilts and strongest fears. What did we do listening to his sweet song again? The sirens’ song has pulled us off course again and we now fear we will be dashed against the rocks and shipwrecked on a dangerous island surrounded by an angry ocean with no boat and one spear amongst us, we are truly imperiled.

 

The costume on President O’Perfect is tattered and torn and his words have long ago lost all hope and we watch waiting nervously as we watch the show being prepared for our gullible little minds. It is an old song, a song which once before we ignored. What if we had listened back then and we had elected a different President O’Perfect, instead now it will be a woman who knows the ropes and imbroglios and thus will avoid making the same mistakes. Maybe this time she will be our Candidate H for Hillary Clinton the new President Operfectill-is-Perfect.She will simply toss aside the old Law Firm accusations and dismiss herself from Bill unless she requires his magic and Benghazi, you saw her at the witch trials, they could not touch her, what Benghazi? Candidate H for Hillary Clinton the new President Operfectill-is-Perfect will punt them and for good measure tell them the truth, her hands were tied and she was under orders and no she cannot and will not reveal from whom or when the order was given because, should she become, or do we say when she becomes our candidate, there will hardly be a day, an hour, or possibly some stations will run this quote instead of the news at the top and bottom of every hour such that by the time the November elections come around it will have lost its sting and her fateful words that were said that significant and quotable day when Hillary Clinton introduced us to her what-if-I-care side and answered shouting angrily,

“With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night decided to go kill some Americans? What difference, at this point, does it make?”

 

Perhaps all the words will have meaning and the American people will take their vote this time seriously and remember the United States has a position and obligation to the world at large and it is darn sure time that She, the undying American symbol of all that is decent,

Lady of Liberty which Adorns the Capital Dome in Washington D.C.

Lady of Liberty which Adorns the Capital Dome in Washington D.C.

rise up and carry that weight She assumed as the Lady of Liberty, Freedom, and People’s Rights the World Over and stands again astride the troubled waters and lands representing all that is decent and good about America signaling that America has returned to the world and will soon arrive to put things right which is why She stands atop the Capital Dome and those people need Her to stand again, proud and most definitively loud when answering our calls.
