Two Party System And Its Rot

In Columns, Nation, Politics

It is time for you to thunder down your grandiloquent omniscience and make it arduous to apperceive the axiomatic reality of your common sense. Reach deep down. Shed your lefty/righty bent and see the real world for what it is. The two-party system has failed this country. It has become monolithic in its application and is killing us all.

We need more choices. Each party is too scared to break into pieces because it would mean at least three cycles of losing before the other party would break into pieces. We need lots of choices to more tailor fit the different groups that we are. The blanket of the two parties thrown upon us, in no way fits us or makes us warm. We’re left with compromise. With giving up such a big part of who we are, just to fit under one tent or another. They are all lying to us and they are not our friend.

The time has come when a politician says publicly that it is patriotic to pay more taxes and to have no understanding of the Boston Tea Party and how we came to be. It is time for more choice. When that same party says it only wants to tax people who make $250,000 and completely ignores the fact that two thirds of those people are small business owners. It is time for more choices.

To have no understanding how harmful that would be to the economic security of this nation. Well, it’s time for more choice. When the other party one day tells you, they are against the biggest corporate bailout in the history of the Planet Earth and the next day tells you, I don’t like it, but it must be done. It is time for more choices.

When that same party claims that we must protect our borders, but does everything but put up Taco Stand on the border, while they ignore all of the hospitals that have collapsed under the strain of providing free medical care for the world. We need more choices.

I’ll end with this: “Life is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.” Or, nothing signifies sound and fury and an idiot was told to vote Republican or Democrat.
