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, letter to Jonathan Jackson, Oct. 2, 1789

It is a shame that we are working so hard to destroy our history, this statement by John Adams is something that should be known by every one in our nation. We are looking today at that which Adams dreaded in 1789. We do have 2 main political parties and they are diametrically opposed to each other. Of course the truth is that the Republican Party claims to stand for limited government and lower taxes and other so-called conservative principals, while the Democratic Party appears to be sliding into the morass of communism. Of course they claim it is progressive, but socialism has never been a progressive movement, look at Cuba, Venezuela and other countries who have tried this experiment, better yet look at North Korea to see what happens when socialism/communism becomes the way of life.

I like to refer to the Republicans as Republicrats, simply because they are also big government, big spending liberals just as are the Demopublicrats. The big spending on each side is the welfare that is paid out to their constituents. For the Dems it is welfare, food stamps, and other types of social programs. For the Repub it is more money on subsidies to big business, big pharma, the military / Industrial complex and wall street. Both of them want to keep bloated bureaucracy alive and well, so they can tax and spend to their hearts content.

I am still wondering where in the Constitution of the United States it says that the Federal Government can tell me how to educate my children, where is the line that says they can control which Doctor I see or what kind of insurance policy I can buy? Why is it that my tax dollars go to inflated salaries of Congress persons and Senators who every couple of years get to tell me that they are raising their own pay, and then of course the perks that go with their royal position. Since when do the employees get to tell the employers how much pay they get?

The Constitution tells us what they can and cannot do, but they ignore the Constitution all the while they swear to uphold and defend that founding document. The Democrat minority leader in the Senate says that he is a scholar of the Constitution, yet he is perfectly willing to ignore the checks and balances of that document except when they will give him the upper hand. He is all bent out of shape because there is now no longer any way to use the filibuster against the opposition candidate for a seat on the Supreme Court of the US, yet he never said a word when Harry Reid invoked the “nuclear” option when it was to his advantage to do so.

There is one other quote that I find interesting: Chris Matthews MSNBC, you know the guy whose legs got all fuzzy when he got to hearing Barack Obama. He said this: “Idiots voted for third and fourth party candidates, and they don’t know how this system works. You have two choices.” This is patently ridiculous. If enough of us get our heads on right and realize that the two main parties, Republicrats and Demopublicrats are really not the only choices we have, and if we keep voting for these people who are only interested in lining their own pockets, passing laws that are in many ways unconstitutional, and telling us what we have to pay them rather than we telling them what we want them to do and expecting them to do it for the amount we are willing to pay them, then we deserve the chaos we now have.

There is one party out here in the land where it is still acceptable to love America, the land between the east coast and west coast, and that is the Constitution Party. If you actually care a whit about where our nation is headed and want to really make a difference then you need to take a look at what this party stands for. The national website is: http://www.constitutionparty.com/ and in Texas our website is: http://cptexas.us/home/ we need you to join with us and help us to work to put our nation back on the right track. Check out the Party Platforms and see what we stand for and then if you agree with us, fill out the membership form and sign up and get to work so we can replace the socialists and get this country to become again the Constitutional Republic it was formed to be.

I am presently the Chair for the Rio Grande (Del Rio) Area of the Constitution Party of Texas. If you want to talk with me send me a note at jquigley2@cpkinneytx.com I will be glad to give you any information you may need.
