Two-Party Fascism by BlameThe1st Two-Party Fascism by BlameThe1st
Insanity is described as performing the same action over and over again and expecting different results every time. The age old example is hitting one’s thumb with a hammer and not expecting it to become bloodied and bruised with every swing. But perhaps a better example is voting for the same two political parties and expecting different results every election.

After having suffered eight years of Republicans waging unconstitutional war in Iraq, passing unconstitutional measures to combat terrorism, abandoning the free market to bailout mortgage companies, and extending socialized medicine through Medicare reform, Americans in 2008 were quick to vote for the Democrats promising “hope and change”.

But after only two years, Americans saw little “hope and change” as Democrats continued unconstitutional war in Iraq (while starting unconstitutional military action in Libya), extended unconstitutional measures to combat terrorism, ignored the free market to bailout the banks and automobile companies, and extended socialized medicine with healthcare reform.

So, disgruntled and disillusioned, Americans voted in 2010 to return Republicans to power in the House of Representatives, even though their “Pledge to America” revealed that their policies have not changed since their eight years controlling the country.

Like a fool hitting his thumb with a hammer over and over again, hoping it will get better with every swing, Americans have been switching back-and-forth between Democrats and Republicans, hoping things will change for the better with every election.

The stark reality is that neither party offers any significant change, as little difference exists between the two. While they appear to be at odds with one another, they are cooperating, either deliberately or inadvertently, to increase the power of the state while stripping away your rights as a citizen.

Democrats want to tell you what food to eat, what video games to play, what healthcare to buy, and what employees to hire. Republicans want to tell you what to put in your own body, who to sleep with or marry, when to pray, and what to do on Sundays.

Democrats want more of your taxpayer money to fund more entitlement programs that may (or rather, may not) help the poor, needy, and uninsured. Republicans want more of your taxpayer money to fund more wars, surveillance, and security that may (or rather, may not) help protect us from terrorist attacks.

Democrats want to increase the welfare state while Republicans want to increase the police state; and, in return, both demand your silent obedience and blind loyalty, whether through paying your taxes or supporting the troops. Any form of dissent is viewed as “un-American” or “un-patriotic”. Either way, both parties are increasing the power of the state while decreasing your power as a citizen.

Thus we cannot expect change by voting for the other party. Both parties have proven to be incompetent and uncaring. Change will only come if we vote for an independent party that actually cares about our individual liberties, and thus limited government. Voting any other way is insanity.

Funny how we fought these fascist regimes in the past yet we subtly continue to support both of them through voting for these idiots.

I still don't think you quite understand what fascism is. The Republican are right and I vote for them make no mistake, but if you think they're true fascist I pray you never see the day when fascism overtakes America. ~ C

"Democrats are generally nicer people--they're more likely to help you change a flat tire, but they'd somehow manage to set your car on fire in the process. Meanwhile, Republicans could probably fix it better, but they're already halfway to the country club." - Dave Barry

How to understand the American political vote for either a Donkey or an Elephant, but get a Turkey!

I heard that some states have laws that effectively PROHIBIT third choices, despite it being unconstitutional (they have ways to bend the rules), and since states actually do have a say in how the federal system works...well...they can affect the federal level.

The federal level, meanwhile, wants to impose "one-size-fits all" solutions to EVERYTHING across the country, kind of forgetting why it's the United STATES of America, and not just one unitary country.

another question....should the Electoral College be abolished and just replaced with actual direct VOTES from the PEOPLE for the President? Has the system outlived its usefulness?

Personally, I don't know, but I do know that our current system probably needs a big overhaul.

A real Democracy would have more than two parties I mean look at China they have only one. Both parties are dumbasses.

And yet people insist that they won't vote for third parties because third parties can't win--even though third parties don't win because people don't vote for them? And people wonder why nothing changes.
