I have a lot of friends who believe in "party infiltration". And I have so much respect for ANYBODY who is willing to step up in ANY capacity to make a difference. But, in my opinion, there is no way that true liberty and the freedom to dissent will be successful in a party system that strong-arms candidates based on the money they raise and the money the party can then use to buy influence.
And then, be able to use that influence to extort from businesses, industries, and even countries - more wealth, resources, and power - that can be used to destroy the individual liberties and natural rights of Americans - and all humans. It is a game of extortion, and both the Republican and Democratic parties play that game well.
There are thousands of examples of this, and that is why I have chosen the path less traveled - that of running outside of any party. Not that this is the right path, but it is the one that I, personally, feel most justified and vindicated in traveling. You may be aware of the concept that there are millions of apathetic Americans who don't want to participate in our corrupt two-party system. My belief is that there can be leaders out in the communities where we live that give these dissenting voices of frustration a place to cast their vote.
These are the silent numbers of people who don't post their likes and dislikes via social media, they don't speak up at meetings, they don't attend political rallies - but they are there, and I believe that they are willing to draw their line in the sand when it comes time to stand up against the oppressive forces of the extortion tactics used by political parties and people we hesitantly call "representatives" in the House and Senate. This includes the near-blind support of Homeland Security's infiltration of our local police forces, the building of containment camps throughout the United States, and extremely destructive erosion of American's privacy. These are the oppressive forces NOT being spoken against by either party.
Corruption does not lend itself to rule-following. I have witnessed this for four years in Colorado's third congressional district where many a good men think they can run Republican and get the blessing of a party that claims to be constitutional and conservative. Unfortunately, you can't play by the rules and expect to win when the people making the rules are the problem.
