I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately, especially after watching this whole thing with Van Jones go down, and I’ve come to the conclusion that in the next election, I will be voting third party.
While the Van Jones controversy has been transpiring, I kept wondering where is the outrage from Congress about a self avowed communist having the President’s ear. In addition to the communism thing, all of his other idiotic statements, and still, nothing from Congress. Only after public outrage got vehement and was blasted all over FOX News (who themselves were WAY behind the curve on this), did some republican Congressmen voice their opposition to Jones being in any position of authority. I wrote my Congressmen (Senators and Representative) exptressing my outrage at the lack of opposition from Congress, and more specifically, THEM on the issue. I asked them where were the patriots in Congress who took their roles and responsibilities, that We the People have charged them with – as in, upholding and defending the Constitution from ALL enemies foreign AND domestic, seriously! Where were the brave men and women in the Congress who would rise up and put their collective foot down on this administration’s ACTIVE erosion of civil rights and Constitutionality!? There was NOTHING on their sites about it. Nothing on the news (even Fox) from them about it. They were sitting back and being as quiet as the mainstream news, meanwhile Facebook, Blogs, Twitter and others were lit up and going insane crying out begging for someone, ANYONE to listen…
So the Democrats are looking to take this country into the realm of socialism/communism, and the Republicans are content to sit back and watch silently as the Democrats drive the bus off the cliff… well, not on my watch, not in my backyard. No.
From this moment on… for the rest of my life… I will never vote for either major party again.
Democrats, you’ve lost me completely due to your policies. Republicans, you’ve lost me due to your inaction and your silence.
Goodbye two party system. I will make it my life’s goal to promote third, fourth, or even fifth parties… however many it takes. -- ###
