There’s a better choice

Is anyone getting tired of hearing about the “fundamental choice” Americans have in this election? We’re told regularly that Mitt Romney and President Obama are so diametrically opposed that the election of one over the other would result in an America that is unrecognizable. It’s a choice between socialism and liberty, we’re supposed to believe.

What if one holds an opinion outside the spectrum of those held by the Republican and Democratic candidates? Why is it that both candidates receive considerable campaign donations from the same entities (Goldman Sachs, for example)? It should be clear why there would be such a vested interest in promoting the idea that no citizen could possibly disagree with both of these candidates.

Democrats claim Republicans will shrink government to a size that will ultimately undo the welfare state completely. Republicans claim Democrats will explode the national debt by welcoming in an unprecedented age of socialism. If they are two polar opposites, there’s no need to choose a third, unapproved candidate.

The truth is, both nominees believe in an economic system where the government intervenes in the economy frequently, granting special privileges to favored enterprises and providing taxpayer-funded bailouts when risky investments prove unprofitable. Businesses that thrive off this system support the candidates that will preserve it, and in this election, those candidates are Romney and Obama.

They're right! There is a better choice...

Obviously, voting doesn't work...the rule of law has flown out the window. "But we need to be respectful and play by-the-rules." HOGWASH!!! That wagon is full, ladies and gentlemen!
Senators, Governors, Representatives, lobbyists, et al. need to be forcebly removed from office and left to fend for themselves to find jobs in the private sector....just like the rest of us.
There is no playing fairly anymore...the GOP and DNC conventions proved that..just as the state primaries did.
What's that old Marine saying?..."If it's a fair fight, your tactics suck!". We all know this's time to change the beat while we still can.

Silence isn't always golden....sometimes it's yellow.

Every day people are abused at the airports and there are no mass demonstrations against this.
