The lesser of two evils... is still evil.

The lesser of two evils... is still evil.

Every election period we hear the phrase, "The lesser of two evils" when we go to vote for the available candidates. We rationalize that the one who is "less" evil, "less" corrupt, "less" lawless... will be an acceptable President. What if the two candidates chosen by the respective parties were Hitler and Stalin? How about Pol Pot and Lenin? Would we be so casual about voting for one of THEM?

We have a possible runnoff with Romney and Obama, or McCain and Clinton, or vice versa, being promoted to the American people, with vigor, by the media. This isn’t to equate any of these people with the above mentioned characters, but here’s the issue: If those being held up to the American public by the media manipulators are not upholding the Constitution, why do most Americans even consider voting for ANY of them?

Does voting for the "lesser" of evil make our nation stronger, or lessen evil? If lawlessness is practiced by those being foisted on the public by the elite, why do we, as the People, so blindly cheer and wave signs for these people? Consider this; Every candidate that has been in the running, save for Ron Paul, has violated their oath of office on a regular basis. This is very clear on the record for those who care to look. How are they unconstitutional, you might ask? Every Congressman and Senator KNOWS, or has been placed on NOTICE, of the following crimes and violations of our Constitution:

1. The Federal Reserve and the creation of fiat/fake money that is NOT gold or silver backed, and which is destroying your wealth or ability to truly prosper. (Think slave).

2. The unconstitutional enforcement of the income tax, which most Americans are NOT liable for.  (Think slave).

3. Every war since WWII has been unconstitutionally fought.  (Think dead Americans and empire building).

4. Illegal wire tapping of American Citizens, by the government’s authority and by the telecom industry.  (Think big brother).

5. The suspension of Habeas Corpus.  (Think no right to a fair trial).

6. The infringement of all American’s rights by the "Homeland" Security Act, and the Patriot Act.  (Think dictator and fascism).

7. The violation of the Geneva Convention... torture... etc.  (Think America becoming a rogue nation).

The list could go on for pages of all the unconstitutional actions all of Congress has supported over the many decades, and is still supporting, even knowing they are unconstitutional.  This includes the Democrat and Republican candidates, except Ron Paul.  So the question is, WHY would any thinking American vote for someone who has a clear record of violating the Constitution, who supports the violation of civil rights, who violates their oath of office to uphold and defend the Constitution, and otherwise be lawless?"

Americans have done this for over a century now, and where has it gotten us as a republic and union of 50 sovereign states? The states have abdicated sovereignty to the federal government with the help of our elected representatives, all for money and control over citizens. Our elected representatives, including those running for President, are routinely making decisions that counter the Constitution and rule of law.

So the question, once again, is, "WHY do Americans seem to be so ignorantly and blindly voting for someone who has a proven record of being an enemy to our Constitution? The media is as guilty as those committing the crimes because they have a duty to report the truth and facts, and they simply play the game the elite want, and continue to manipulate the news to control the people’s awareness.

American’s have become grossly ignorant of their rights and what the Constitution really says, and the government, elected representatives and the wealthy WANT it that way because if Americans truly woke up from their sleep, and really took stock of the critical position our country is in, and their loss of freedoms, we’d see a true revolution explode across the country overnight... one that is actually in the making as we speak.

The Ron Paul Revolution is proof that many Americans are waking up to the facts.  No one can accuse Ron Paul of violating his oath of office.  No one can accuse Ron Paul of being an enemy of freedom or the Constitution.  His record is 20 years long.  His battle has been to preserve our freedoms, and to maintain the Constitution.  Ron Paul has consistently fought against the unconstitutional actions of Congress, (that's why he is called Dr. NO in Washington) and has been re-elected 10 times by awake Americans.
