“However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.”
– GEORGE WASHINGTON, Farewell Address, September 17, 1796
Why abandon the GOP and Democratic Parties? Because they are the same in too many ways. They are the problem, because they are not representative of the people. The Tea Party figured they could fix the GOP by electing Constitutional Conservatives and it worked! In fact, it worked so well that the internal GOP elites have declared war on this type of invasion into ‘their’ choices for us.
The internal party elites see us ‘the people’ (not just the Tea Party) as invaders of their kingdom – a big corporate government. They fear independent minds that think and verify. We need to wise-up and stop trusting the people feeding us what they want us to eat – the opportunity to be a Republican as a constitutional candidate no longer exists where I am from; the GOP elites have and will stop us if we work within their framework.
We have seen this type of planned resistance in Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District where I am running. The Colorado GOP destroyed the clear winner of the state convention (Bob McConnell) and fed us their primary choice (Scott Tipton) by heavily funding him and demonizing others. They did this while adapting to the talking points of “the people’s choice” (McConnell) with no intention of living up to the voters’ needs. And then they drilled in the fear of what would happen if the Democratic challenger got elected. The GOP voters took a reluctant bite. Now, two years later, things don’t taste too good and the independent and swing voters of the GOP and Democratic parties are ready to spit out the candidate that was fed to us in 2010 by the GOP.
Now what? Who can take on the established party candidates?
Some will say that I’m a “spoiler” who can’t get elected and will only “help the Democrat” get elected. Honestly, looking at the polling and track record of our current congressman (Scott Tipton) and talking to many of the voters who voted Republican, it is obvious he won’t win even if I don’t run. I spoil nothing. I offer a true choice of a fiscally conservative constitutional candidate that isn’t tied to big money and controlled by lobbies and big government corporate cronies.
We can’t change the system overnight. There are options, if you dare to take charge of your vote and vote with your conscience. We must stop the fear planted in our heads by the party elites and make sensible choices that we can live with. It’s no longer a ‘you have to vote the party, lever puller world’ since both sides, both political parties, have clearly aligned to stay in control.
Demonstrated track records of both parties are now visible to us if we take a realistic look. The Internet has ratted out the biased media. Some are even now worried that the parties will start to control the Internet in the same way that they control the main-stream-media.
I say re-elect none of them and lets start fresh before more damage is done – that is one of the reasons I am running as an independent/unaffiliated candidate. There are many of us across the country running for our rights and liberties with no party affiliation. This time, more than ever, people are listening and supporting us and dare I say, actually winning! This is why you see the blow-back from both parties against Independents as we take the seats away from them more and more. Look at how many people are becoming Independent voters – that is what we should have been doing all along. Several of our founding fathers warned against political parties – and we can see why.
If you are in Colorado’s 3rd District, I invite you to take a walk on the wild side and vote for someone who cares and dares enough to fight the battle for you regardless of which party you currently associate with. We are all really independent-minded and we share so many common goals and ideals. We must stop the corporate parties who dictate how we should behave and what is good for us. We are smarter than that. I challenge you to sort it all out and vote based on common sense, dignity, historical fact and the visionary perspective our founding fathers blessed us with by creating the Declaration of Independence and Constitution. Only then can your vote come from your heart.
Nationally, I encourage people to do the same and take a hard look at the parties and ALL of the candidates, including those that are unaffiliated/independent. More and more of us are winning and we need your help.
My campaign is traveling Colorado, listening and talking with all of the citizens who want to be heard. Please come and visit me when I’m in your town, or write/call anytime. All viewpoints are welcome because I will be representing all of us, not just a political party. This is about THE PEOPLE versus the established failed big corporate government party system that have completely ignored the people’s freedom of choice and liberty which I shall tenaciously fight for every day. I listen. I am accountable and accessible to the people’s voices. I want your vote and support to change our path. To the Republican and Democratic parties – if you can ever come back to representing the people of this great country, please let me know. Until then, please accept my sincere invitation to join me in the fight for our freedom and liberty.
