Time For a Third Party!

I've been trying to hold out hope for the Republican party for a long time now. Not so much that I consider myself Republican, more like maybe they will come to their senses and run a CONSERVATIVE candidate. I have always said that Bush was NO conservative. Conservatives find ways to take and spend less of our money and lessen the size of government, hence the name conservative, root word "conserve", any questions? Bush did neither. Actually, he completely went the other direction. Sure he gave us a little tax cut so he would seem more conservative. This tactic was a smoke screen. Bush loved to use the phrase "compassionate conservatism", wow that's sounds catchy and caring. Too bad it's B.S.! "Compassionate conservatism" means simply this, No conservatism at all!!! We haven't had a conservative candidate since Reagan. Bush Sr. and W. are elitists. Just like John McCain and Barrack Obama. They only care about themselves and their self serving ideologies. What this country needs is a third party, or a third choice, if you will. If you want "change", this is the only way that I can see it to be possible. The problem is that the party lines are blurred. They are not set in stark contrast anymore. Hell, both parties have abandoned their platforms. Democrats used to be for the working man. Republicans used to care about capitalism. Now the new Democrats have become the old socialists, and the new Republicans have become slaves to big business. In this scenario we the people lose out every time. Joseph Stalin once said, "No matter who they vote for, they're voting for us." That seems about right for our government too. I can't stand these ignorant college kids and their obsession with socialism. I know we are all young and stupid once, but now it has even more severe consequences than ever before. We are at the precipice in this country, especially with socialized health care right around the corner. Listen, if this passes, it will NEVER go away, no matter how bad it fails or how much it costs. Look at social security, medicare, medicaid, etc. If we can't stop whats happening, I fear we will all be very sorry(and broke) for a really long time. The need for a third party and a return to the original interpretations of the Constitution is now, as well as the Bill of Rights. The Bill of Rights is not a list of rights that the government bestowed unto us. It is a list of rights that CAN NOT be infringed upon by the government. See the difference? We are so preoccupied with the idea that the government gives us our rights (thanks public school system) that we accept anything the government passes as law even if it is Un Constitutional. Our creator gave us our rights, we then lend them to the government. The government does not lend them to us. Now, which party do we turn to? I don't know. There are so many parties now, how does one choose? Based on values, ideology, fiscal ideology, etc? Well, I say all. We must find a party platform that incorporates all of these things. The closest party with a fighting chance is probably the Libertarian party. The best choice for the country is probably the Constitution party. I hate to abandon the Republican party but, they abandoned me first! I mean John Freakin' McCain?!? is that really the BEST candidate you Republicans had to offer? Well, now you know why I no longer consider myself a Republican. I am not leaving you, you left me, never forget that! I know alot of people who feel like I do. Now is the time to pick a party(not the D or R), make a stand, and take back our country! We are in a position now in this country to which none of us have ever seen. We the people have had all we can stand from our government. The Republicans had eight years and did nothing to advance conservatism, if anything they redefined it leaving a bad taste in the people's mouths. Conservatism is not George W. Bush, it is not John McCain, is not Lindsey Graham. This type of so called conservatism is how BHO got elected. The majority of the people in this country are conservative, but the meaning of conservatism has been hijacked by spineless appeasers in the Republican party. Just as socialists have hijacked the Democratic party. Only seven months into this disaster of a presidency, the people are sick of the shady dealings and broken promises of this administration. Now is the perfect time for a new party to step up to the plate. To offer "we the people" an alternative. We have had enough of the same old worn out political arguments. Whichever party steps up, it needs to get started. We have until 2010 to vote out the career politicians and get some new blood in those seats. New blood with a new vision, one that does not lead to a more authoritarian state, but to a more free state, where we decide for ourselves what type of car to drive, what type of light bulbs to own, what type of toilets we can put into our homes, if we want to drink a Coca-Cola, we don't have to pay a higher tax because it is a sugary beverage, this is lunacy that this conversation is even happening! How have we gotten so far from personal freedom? Please for the love of country and your fellow Americans, stop the madness! Stop voting for the same two parties that are responsible for all that is wrong with our country. Every domestic problem we face as a nation, can be traced to our government's intervention into our lives. Every financial crisis is created by regulations, interference in commerce, and ever increasing taxes. The government then sees the problem, and tries to impose some other system that is even worse, the whole while, claiming it will fix the problem that it created. The remedy is almost always worse than the crisis. By worse I mean that the government's span of control over our lives increases. I for one can make my own decisions. I will decide what my family needs, wants, and receives, not some faceless bureaucrat whom I've never met. Thomas Jefferson said, "A government big enough to give you everything you want, is big enough to take everything you have...The course of history shows that as a government grows, liberty decreases." Let those words sink in good, they couldn't be more true. Our founding fathers were no idiots, they were perhaps the smartest people to ever set foot in this nation. this is a call to all of you who are as fed up as myself. Do the research on some alternative parties. Maybe we can turn this train around while we still have the freedom and will to do it.

Why Do Conservatives Compromise?

I was wondering why only the conservatives compromise. Every time that there is an issue to be debated, we conservatives are always the ones asked to change our views in light of the so called progressive view. The best example I can give of this is Gun Control. Why is it that the 2nd Amendment is always under fire? The libs told us in the 80's, "We just want to ban the Saturday night specials" (which were cheap easily concealable handguns). Let's examine this argument before we move on. First of all what is a "cheap" handgun? Well that depends on the financial situation of the purchaser. If you make $7.00 an hour and work 5 days a week, a $250.00 handgun is not very cheap. If you are some big shot lawyer turned politician, well $250.00 is not even felt. So once again, our liberal friends dismiss subjectivity when it suits them (they are NEVER objective). For years now the left wingers have been after assault weapons and ammo. I can't figure out why the left always is at odds with the status quo. The staus quo isn't always bad, and if it is why is it the government's job to fix it? Let the markets and the American people decide how to fix our problems. At times it is necessary to question the reasoning and logic of our policies and procedures, I have no problem with that. What bothers me is every time we are asked, it is always in opposition to what is logical and reasonable. We are told if assault weapons were banned, then the country would be a safer place for the "children". B.S.!!! That is liberal rhetoric. They point out Columbine, the crazy student at Virginia Tech, and the nutcase in Geneva, AL. They will tell you that if there weren't any guns than this wouldn't have happened. I say if the CRAZY PEOPLE didn't have guns this wouldn't have happened. They DON'T tell you about all of the non-crazy, peace loving, taxpaying, responsible gun owners who don't go on shooting sprees everyday. They own firearms for sport, hunting, home defense, and personal protection. In no way am I a threat to anyone that isn't a threat to me or my family. I would also ask this, Do you libs think that these nut bags cared if there were any gun laws banning these weapons? Do you really think that would have stopped them? Do you really think the law enforcement in this country could stop all the sales and distribution of firearms nationwide? It's not working out too good for illegal drugs, prostitution, illegal immigration, etc. The only thing an all out ban on firearms would do is ensure that only criminals would be firearm owners. Once the criminals become the sole carriers of guns, well it's game on for them. They will know that if they break into your home, that you will not be capable of defending yourself. They will be armed, you won't! I guess you can call 911, wait 10-30 minutes until the police arrive. I wonder how long it would take a criminal to shoot you after you hang up the phone. See, this is what liberals do not want to debate. They want to call you a domestic terrorist, a redneck, a Bambi killing murderer. That is the way of the liberal, if they can't beat you on logic and facts, they will resort to name calling and trying to make it personal. With this they put you on the defensive and take the focus off of the topic at hand. After you have become angry with them over their personal attacks on your character, they will end the debate feeling as though they have won. But you can't "win" what you have never truly debated. The perfect example of this is Global Warming(or cooling whichever we are calling today). Al Gore claims, "the debate is over", funny I don't remember it ever truly taking place. I remember the media portraying only one side. Anyway, this blog's main focus is why conservatives must compromise, while the liberals are always asking for us to change for their benefit and never willing to change for ours. I say ENOUGH!!! I am sick and tired of spineless RINOs giving in to this none sense! Get a backbone! Represent your constituents! Do not cower before these pseudo-intellectuals and stand up for your values! If you refuse to fight for us, then you are of no use to us and you will be gone come next election. The health care issue is in compromise mode, the far left is screaming mad at the new propositions. This is a good start. But we can not allow this false sense of victory to pave the way for some "compromised" legislation to pass that will leave any loop holes in which the government takeover could still be imminent. The American people are standing up like I haven't seen in my lifetime! We are pissed off and I think the politicians are noticing. They can play it down all they want. Nancy Pelosi can call real American grassroots efforts AstroTurf all she wants, it doesn't change a damn thing. If anything, it pisses people off that much more, to where they are willing to take off work a little early to go to a town hall meeting. These people are not some right wing "mob", they are real everyday citizens. They are people with legitimate concerns. When the government keeps promising all these things and spending all this money without any explanation on how they will pay for it, people start getting scared. Fear then leads to anger, this is the fear induced anger that you are witnessing at these meetings. It is sincere. I know the media only shows the one loud guy screaming incoherently, don't expect to see the regular people aired on the news channels anytime soon. Never in my life have I seen the news media in this country betray the entire population without flinching. They will pay for their atrocities soon enough. A wind of change* is blowing in our country, change* that hasn't been felt in decades. I believe that there in a conservative awakening coming. Do not compromise if it is only one-sided, and NEVER compromise your values!

P.S. A question for all of you liberal women shouting, "Keep your laws off my body", when it comes to abortions. Why are you supporting the government being in control of the health care industry? If this passes, their laws will be ALL OVER your body. Just curious.

*Actual change - not just some meaningless mantra used to trick unsuspecting Americans into following some empty suit to the voting booths and pulling the lever for the most unqualified, far left, anti capitalist, flat out lying, czar appointing, automobile industry stealing, teleprompter reading, gun hating, baby killing, tax increasing politician to ever hold the office of the presidency
