"A house divided against itself cannot stand." This quote from Abraham Lincoln isn't new to anyone. I am not a big fan of Lincoln but this quote is relevant to the state of the American public today. Our government knows that if they can keep us divided, we will fight each other instead of paying attention to the ever increasing evils it continues to perpetuate. Those in power know that divide and conquer is one of the best tools of control.
The more recent example of this is in the gun debate. Like so many other issues, yes I certainly have opinions. I am certainly pro self defense and against any gun control. My position is actually one of repealing all gun laws. This is not the point. This issue is being used to divide us.
Those in power want us arguing over this. Years from now it will be made public that while we were debating guns some greater evil was secretly made into policy. This is only the current issue.
The last one pitted women’s rights and men’s rights. All men were accused of being perverts and rapists. Meanwhile women who defended men were said to be victim shaming. Let me be make my opinion clear that the violation of anyone’s right to self ownership, regardless of sex, is wrong.
Before that was gay rights. You were either for two consenting adults agreeing to get married and force people who disagree to bake them a cake or you hate homosexuals and want them to be shipped off to re-education camps. If you say to people that force should never be used and question why any government has the right to tell anyone who they can associate with, you are looked at like you are speaking Klingon.
The point is that a solution to these arguments was always pushed to one extreme or the other. You must choose between two absolutely conflicting view points. Either throw yourself into one of the extremes or walk away and say, “somebody else can handle this.”
In steps the “savior” with the middle ground that ignores personal responsibility and gives more power to a centralized control. Meanwhile while we were arguing over these issues. Murder, theft, and all manner of crimes were being committed all over the globe by governments and their friends in banks and corporations. The ultimate loser is always you. Not only do you lose your rights in the public debate but also in the hidden one.
Why do you think they keep it to two major political parties. Your choices are- A Jackass in a blue tie who wants a large centrally controlled government ran from D.C. that strips you of your wealth by stealing it right out of your pocket through taxation and putting it in their own pocket, or handing it to one of their friends as an early Christmas present every April.
Or you could “choose" option number two a bloated fat cat elephant wearing a red tie who wants a small centrally controlled government ran from D.C. that pushes around other countries, steals their stuff, and blows up children with the money they stole right out of your pocket.
“Corrupted by wealth and power, your government is like a restaurant with only one dish… They’ve got a set of Republican waiters on one side & a set of Democratic waiters on the other side. No matter which set of waiters brings you the dish, the legislative grub is all prepared in the same all Street Kitchen” — Huey Long in “Every Man a King!”
We always have another choice. I choose this guy
That is a picture of me. For YOU look to your own pictures. I want a voluntary decentralized government ran from as close to me as possible.
Does that imply that I won't work with others or want chaos. Of course not. I just want my community to come together of their own choice to make the decisions for my community. You know the people directly impacted by those decisions.
More than that I have banded together with other like minded people to do this.
They are called The Libertarian Party. Come check us out.
