Over the past fortnight we have witnessed political conventions from both the democrats and the republicans. We have also witnessed the birth of a revolution.
Here is ‘The Good, The Bad and The Ugly‘ from the last two weeks:
The Democratic Convention
The Democrats are so far gone, it’s like watching all the bad guys from ‘Atlas Shrugged’ It would take me a year to write out all the things that were wrong with the convention and their view points, and it still wouldn’t get us anywhere.
And no, we do not all ‘belong to the government’
The Republican convention
My problem with the republicans is that they talk the talk, but they do not walk the walk. I liked many of the things that were discussed at the convention, but there was nothing concrete, and the president and vice president candidates are no good.
Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan both have horrible spending records, and both support legislation which goes against the constitution. These are the two ‘conservative’ men who are challenging the current president and vice president.
Clint Eastwood’s speech was aimed at all the politicians, and in a way it took a swipe at Romney himself. Clint Eastwood, like Ron Paul, rejected the polished teleprompter speeches, and made up one of his own. His speech could have been directed at almost everyone in government right now.
Ron Paul and his supporters fought to the last minute to get him onto the stage at the convention. The crushing way that the establishment stamped out the grassroots movement, including those of the Tea Parties, has helped expose the criminality and power hoarding behind the scenes.
Ron Paul’s last stand at the convention, and the way he was shunned, has shown us that the republican party is not on the right track, and has driven many of us toward the libertarian movement and to vote for Gary Johnson, who now leads the charge back toward liberty and fiscal responsibility.
Gary Johnson, former republican governor of New Mexico, who won in a state which is 2-1 democrat, and who vetoed over 750 bills while in office, is currently leading the libertarian party. With the disenfranchisement of many republicans and democrats, who know that both parties have lost their way, the libertarian party will see huge gains in November.
Do not fall into the collectivist trap, do not hide in numbers, do not vote for the lesser of two evils. Stand up as an individual and vote for your freedom and liberty.
There is no difference between Romney and Obama, but you can make a difference with Gary Johnson.
At the local level, there are many good republican candidates who support the constitution and fiscal responsibility. It is important that you get out and vote for anyone who espouses the foundations of this nation. This fight will not be won in November, but we will make an impact, and we will start to put the country back on track.
As for the criminals at the top; it’s time to round them up, and send them out!
