Democrat, Republican... or American?

All of our lives, we have been saturated with "party" affiliation politics. Republican or Democrat, supposed "choices" from which to voice our will and achieve freedom as best we think. Sounds good, doesn’t it? The bulk of party affiliation over the past 100 years has been either Democrat or Republican, period, but has that been good for America?

We have all been caught up in this illusion of choice, and we continue the same old mechanical responding each election year. Republicans battle Democrats and vice versa. We have this routine tug-of-war between both parties, both promising to be the answer to America’s problems. The sad part is that most who claim Democrat or Republican ties believe the empty talk and forget that each never lives up to their promises.

We have allowed this illusion of an actual choice that makes a real difference to continue to enslave us into making the same mistakes over, and over and over again, even though the results we expect to be different are NEVER really different. What mistakes? The two faces of these affiliations are on the same sick political and corrupt head that has only one image in mind: Control over YOU, your money and your future. In fact if you analyze both parties, you will see that both contain clear elements of being Socialistic, Communistic and Fascist. "Democrat" and "Republican" are now simply words disguising encroaching socialism, communism and fascism. Shocking?

Think about it: Do the Democrats obey the Constitution and rule of law? How about the Republicans? Do either stand for the Rule of Law or the Constitution? Almost the entirety of those in Federal Government (not to mention State and local governments) are violating the law and their Constitutional Oaths of Office, and yet most of us still plan to pick one of these criminals to replace the criminal already in office, imagining them to be something they aren’t. If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it must be a duck.

If our candidates talk about the status quo, resist enforcing our borders, violate our Constitution, continue to allow private control over our money supply, dumb down our kids, farm out our jobs, promote the welfare state, and various other illegal and unconstitutional activities throughout government, which are all socialist, communist and fascist elements, are we so naive to believe that they will somehow be good for this country and not continue in the same vein? If the fruit being produced is poison, why do we continue to allow our nation to be fed with it? Have we slowly been overcome by the very ideologies we have despised all these decades? Most certainly, YES.

The simple question to ask yourself is this: Are you Democrat, Republican, or American? If you, as a "Republican" or "Democrat" uphold illegal and unconstitutional (read socialist, communist and fascist) leaders, is this American? Is it Democratic to violate an oath of office? Is it Republican to break the law, and to trash our Constitution? Have we become so divided as "AMERICANS" that we can’t see through this facade they have created for us to make us feel like our vote and voice are worth something, all the while both affiliations stealing our freedoms, our rights, our money and our property?

We are gearing up for another Presidential candidacy in 08, and we are STILL hearing the same pathetic mindless droning of either parties candidates on most issues, (with a rare exception, Presidential Candidate Ron Paul, a true American, and someone you NEED to educate youeself on) and we are seemingly falling in line, believing that the "lesser of two (or 20) evils" (criminals) is no longer still evil or criminal.

A majority of thinking Americans want desperately to believe that "someone" will make a real difference in America, but do we allow self delusion and propaganda to hamper any hope of this "someone" actually materializing? How about if the "someone" that really needs to step up to the plate and be heard is YOU? Will you step up and act Democrat, or Republican, or AMERICAN? Will YOU support the violation of Constitutional law, or will you stand firm on law and not be hoodwinked into making another horrible choice based on a horrible socialist, communist and fascist agenda?

The system we have now we have to work with, but we don’t have to be zombies chanting the Republican or Democrat mantra as absolute answers and truth to our nation’s problems. If someone has "always voted Democrat" and yet doesn’t understand the facts, the issues or the threats we face as a nation and People, isn’t mindlessly voting "Democrat" just adding to our growing problem? The same with "always voting Republican." If we vote "affiliation" rather than issues, law and Constitution, how does that make us American?

It makes us good socialists, or communists, or fascists, but NOT good Americans. If we continue to vote socialist, will we get back a true Republic which our founding fathers once established? If we continue to vote communist, will this secure our money and property? If we continue to vote fascist, will this give us individual freedom and security? The whole concept of Democrat and Republican today is destructive, and taking our nation to a place most of us really don’t want. The ONLY way either party can redeem itself is to begin obeying the law and Constitution, putting Americans and this nation ahead of government, corporate, and self interests, and having the fortitude to "buy back their souls" by courageously standing against the forces that are destroying our money, our freedoms, our property and our children’s heritage.

We either wake up, realize the peril we are all facing, research the issues and find someone who is actually upholding the law and Constitution, or we will only receive more of the same insanity and destruction of our way of life. Your choice. Will you be a good fascist, or a good American?
