Divide and Conquer – Two-Party System

The Constitution, which sets forth the principle of rule of law, defines what is unconstitutional, and guarantees freedom of speech and other liberties of a Constitutional republic, and also describes the impeachment power. (How many know of the Jewish roots of this document?) Hypocrisy threatens Constitutional government. Could Israel use a constitution like this? More to the point: would a Convention of States save it, or destroy it? (Example: civil asset forfeiture violates the Constitution.) Quick fixes like Regulation Freedom Amendments weaken it. Furthermore: the Constitution provides for removing, and punishing, a judge who commits treason in his rulings. Furthermore, opponents who engage in lawfare against an elected President risk breaking the Constitution.

There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution. – John Adams

Here we go again…

Right and left divide the people between them

The so-called “right” has been capitulating to anti-American socialists/communists who attempt to force their agendas on the American people. Rand Paul voted in favor of confirming Chuck Hagel; Ron Paul filed complaints with the U.N. against his own supporters; 100 Republicans are petitioning to back homosexual marriage as the Supreme Court looks at the issue this month; and eight Republican governors have betrayed the people and have come out in support of Obamacare.

Nowadays, America’s “right” is as corrupt and destructive as the “left.”

Today’s conservatives are yesterday’s liberals, and as the un-American agenda goes forward, who loses?

The American people do.

To support and defend the Constitution

The Constitution was never intended to divide people.

No matter “what side of the aisle” a representative stands on, they all swear the same oath:

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.

Those who serve in our military swear a similar oath.

Politicians divide the people and disrespect the Constitution

Why is it that the American soldier fights, bleeds and dies to uphold the Constitution, while the representatives in American government are allowed to desecrate their honor by undoing the freedoms (under the laws of our constitutional republic) for which the soldier sacrificed?

We have one Constitution, not two – but the American people have been dumbed-down to believe that when the left is in power, they can trample the Constitution; and when the right is in power, they can trample the Constitution. They both act as if they are a law unto themselves.

The first president of the United States, George Washington, prophetically warned:

The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge natural to party dissension, which in different ages & countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism. The disorders & miseries, which result, gradually incline the minds of men to seek security & repose in the absolute power of an Individual: and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of Public Liberty.

Simply put, America would not have a “left” if the “right” had been doing the right thing all of the time.

It would do America well to go back and see the flags that were flying during the American Revolution.

“No king but King Jesus” and “Appeal to Heaven” were their rallying cries. They must be ours as well if we wish to see America regain the ground that has been lost.

    the two party system is bad, but because it doesnt allow for dissenting opinions. Ron Paul was hardly a republican, but he had no other platform and had to change his message in order to stand a chance at the presidency. Gary Johnson quit the republicans rather than pander to rednecks, and faded away quickly (despite being the most qualified person in last years election). The people are forced to choose between cookie cutter candidates of little substance out of fear of letting the other party win. Most obama supporters I know didnt like Obama, they just hated Romney. More serious parties means more freedom to choose. Your schpeel about republicans betraying the people by supporting Obama care or gay marriage is BS. Betraying the people is turning people’s well being into a business.

      The second part of your comment has little to do with the first. And somehow I find it difficult to believe that you put yourself into the “I didn’t really like Obama” category.

    “‘No king but King Jesus’ and ‘Appeal to Heaven’ were their rallying cries. They must be ours as well if we wish to see America regain the ground that has been lost.”

    Yeah, that first one’s going to go over well with all of your Jewish friends who consider themselves Americans too.

    Dean should re-read Article VI of the Constitution he claims to defend before he talks about undermining it.

    • Terry A. Hurlbut says:

      I remind you that Jewish politicians and appointees have been part of American government since the War for Independence. Those flags did not chase them out then. They will not chase them out now. Not by themselves, they won’t.

    Terry, I didn’t like Obama because I do not support Imperialism. Also I feel like his healthcare bill did not go far enough. He tried too hard in the beginning to appease republicans and got nothing done. He has been a huge disappointment. Of course, you guys spent a year trying to convince us that Romney was a good choice and was going to fix everything, so clearly you are out of touch with reality (Romney is possibly the most hated politician of the past 50 or so years according to one study, even his party didn’t like him)

    • Terry A. Hurlbut says:

      Well, I’ll say this for you; you’re more honest than most. I cannot say of you, as I can definitely say of Obama, that you ever were for any particular thing he did before you were against it.
