Two wings of the same bird of prey...
The polarization of this nation shall be it's undoing.
When people vote against common sense we have all lost.
I am a Libertarian. Not an Ayn Rand Libertarian...but a believer and follower of the Philosophy of Freedom.
I do not need a Nanny to tell me how to live...what I can or cannot do with my body...my beliefs or my property. As long as my freedom does not impede upon the freedom of another...what I choose to do or how I choose to live is no one's business. I will not cross into my neighbors yard and tell him how to live and I expect the same in return.
Both main parties are far too interested in control and regulation.
The Dems think they can legislate "good will toward man" with politically correct speech, gun regulations and an over powering police presence (Nanny/Police state).
The Republicans, while they tout that they are for small Gov, Liberty and the Constitution...think they can legislate morality...saying who or what you can marry...what you can and cannot put in or remove from your body. Their version of Freedom...like the Democrats...has far too many restrictions that delve into people's personal lives.
The result is "both" parties end up creating bureaucracy to carry out and "enforce" their world views. I personally feel they are both way off the mark.
The Dem's would create legislation and taxation that strangles and paralyzes business...the Repubs would allow corporations to dump toxins anywhere they choose if it makes a dollar.
Madness...complete and utter madness. The only path forward is personal freedom and responsibility...the only balance is common sense...which sadly is in short supply...I will choose Liberty...I will choose freewill. The party that best affords this...in my opinion...are the Libertarians.
Ron Paul: Democrats and Republicans are the same party
June 06, 2011|By Luke Broadwater
U.S. Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas), a GOP presidential candidate, was on CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday, and, as usual, the congressman skewered at least one sacred cow of American politics.
Paul's target this time? The notion that Republicans and Democrats are diametrically opposed political parties. You know, the idea that they're bitter political opponents. They fight over everything. They hate each other.
But the truth is, Paul said, they're the same party.
"We don’t have a good democratic process," Paul said. "What happens if you come to the conclusion, as millions of Americans have, these parties aren’t different, they’re all the same. The monetary policy stays the same. The welfare system stays the same. The foreign policy stays the same. They get pretty disgusted. There is but one party."
It's very difficult to watch how the changing of American presidents has almost no effect on most of this country's policies and not think that Paul is right.
