The More Things Change; The More They Stay The Same

It’s that time again. The time that rolls around every two years; when men and women spend outrageous amounts of money telling us why they should be chosen to serve in Congress. They say outrageous things to “scare” you into believing that their opponent is either the devil-incarnate or the rebirth of Hitler, Stalin or any other number of bad “rulers” from times past.
The truth is that regardless which major party candidate is elected, nothing will change except some of the names and faces.
Both major parties support a progressive income tax; though they disagree on what percentage of “income” to steal and some now support repealing the “income tax” and replacing it with a regressive sales tax labeled the “Fair tax” (as if there is a fair manner of stealing your money).
Both major parties support an interventionist foreign policy; though they disagree on when and where to intervene.
Both major parties support a continued welfare state; though they claim to disagree on whether to give welfare to corporations or individuals. (Does the bi-partisan banker bailout and bailout of auto companies sound familiar?)
Both major parties support laws that infringe on your right of privacy – the PATRIOT Act, FISA & NSA all passed with bi-partisan support.
Both major parties support increased government spending.
Both major parties support government intervention in health care; they just disagree on how much intervention there should be.
Both major parties support bigger government, they just disagree on how fast it should grow.
Most importantly, both major parties oppose individual liberty. Neither major party believes that you are smart enough to determine what is best for yourself and your family. They do not believe that you and you alone should be able to decide what substances you wish to ingest; otherwise there wouldn’t be laws and regulations prohibiting the sale of raw milk, not to mention the laws against possessing, distributing and/or consuming certain herbs.

If you want real change and I mean an actual change in how the federal government operates; you can not continue to vote for and/or support the Republicratic Duopoly. As Adam Kokesh said in 2008, “our efforts as a movement must become unified and deliberate to fully withdraw our compliance and support. Be it with your lives, labor, or tax dollars, stop investing in your own oppression! Do not waste a single vote, or a single dollar, on the two-party system!”
