Re: We need a new system
William H. Smith IV,
Don't know if you've noticed but big changes are afoot in the present system. TEA Party
types running for office and kicking establishment candidates arse. Let me name a few Ted Cruse (sp?) in Texas, Allan West Fl., Rubio Fl, Here in lil' ole Arkansas we're about to produce a rising star named Tom Cotton who defeated Gov. Huck's hand picked choice for the house. How about Rand Paul? I could go on and on but I'm sure you get where I'm coming from.
Who are the "right wing nut jobs"?
"Lesser of two evils? You consider Romney evil? Not my first choice but certainly not evil. The other guy, oh yeah. So far, with the selection of Ryan for V.P., Romney is exceeding my exspectations. Tells me he's dead serious about turning things around.
I don't know if a third party is a viable idea or not but I do know that it would be a whole lot easier to wrest control of the G.O.P from the RINOs and establishment types and return it to the Conservative Constitutional Party of it's origins (happening as I type this). It takes effort from patriots like you and, trust me on this, it won't be done from middleground".
Find a group with values like yours and get to work, support like minded candidates, open your wallet. As you know freedom ain't free.
"I spent 23 years of my life watching the world laugh at our country after I served in our Navy and while I still defended us from outside our country." Very commendable, now all you have to do is spend the rest of your life defending it from within.
"The Utopian schemes of leveling [redistribution of the wealth] and a community of goods [central ownership of the means of production and distribution], are as visionary and impractical as those which vest all property in the crown.[These ideas] are arbitrary, despotic, and, in our government, unconstitutional."
