George Washington warned us against the party system in his Farewell Address. Should we
get rid of the party system in the United States? The Answer is YES!
America on fast track to tyranny: Could this really happen here? The Bill of Rights is under attack as never before. And the assault, every bit the definition of "treasonous" to the most reasonable of people, is being waged by the very government whose charge it is to preserve, protect and defend it. Worse, a growing nation of sheeple, fostered by large carrots on short sticks sold as "free," has been complicit in helping to usher in
the Era of the Dependent Serf.
The biggest factor of why seniors are losing more and more benefits. They are getting blamed for the country going broke.

Are we THAT Stupid?
YES, FOR ALLOWING THOSE IN THE U.S. . CONGRESS TO GET AWAY WITH DOING THIS YEAR AFTER YEAR!!!!!
The fiscal cliff 'deal': They're kidding, right?
Once again, Republicans have mistaken capitulation for "compromise." Those who voted
for the "deal" to avert the "fiscal cliff" of the Washington magicians' making

Wouldn't it be great not to have parties?
where when somone runs for president, the looser gets the vise President job.
and wouldn't it be great that congress gets term limits, and get to office on merit, not political
What would it look like to have no more Democrats OR Republican parties?—would that be the “Republic for which we stand”?
We would not see the finger pointing and the “he said, she said” antics: these are demeaning and an embarrassment to the greatest nation on earth.
We will know, and should know, what our tax dollars are being used for – in detail! This is no more than asking the President to show income tax returns.
Congress would have to make decisions and pass legislative measures on a time frame! This would be similar to citizens paying penalties when their taxes are late or like athletes pay penalties out of their
salary for foul play.
Congress would receive the same benefits we receive – the so called entitlements. They voted for them; let them pay taxes for them along with the rest of us, and PARTICIPATE in the same social security entitlements we have –based on what they paid in—not what they voted to give themselves.
Oh yes, I forgot they have salary continuance for life – my mistake
(Isn’t that an entitlement?) Don’t
you think their 10% increases are more than the average American receives in 3
Haven’t we had enough yet??
I'm tired of the divisiveness that is pulling this country apart, where friends, and relatives are fighting, and for what?
There political motivated ways to pay back there donors, they are not fighting for us, so why should we fight for
them?? I’m tired of Democrats and Republicans not fighting for us, & our betterment! Why cant't Senators and representatives getting along as Americans. I’ve had it with a U.S. Supreme Court that awarded corporations the same speech rights as people, which allows their money to buy votes.Revolutions are built on a simple idea. Mine is for all Americans, one by one, to leave the two-party system and become independent voters. We might not all agree on which politician is best for any given office, but we can all agree
that every politician is made worse by the two-party system. So let's at least get rid of that. The power of the two major political parties is derived from their memberships. If they have no members then they no longer exist. Everyone currently registered as a Democrat or a Republican -- about 70% of the electorate -- collectively controls the fate of the two-party system. You can dismantle it at any time simply by becoming an independent voter. Regardless of political leanings, all Americans like freedom: in our professional lives, our political lives, and our personal lives. The historical record consistently demonstrates that we have rarely settled for
less; standing vigilant time and time again against any and all violations of freedom. On the surface, the two-party system looks like an elegant
protector of the freedom we cherish, a balanced structure where Democrats and Republicans trade power about equally. Dig a little deeper and you find that the two-party system itself has become more powerful than its component parts. By cozying up to big business and passing laws that effectively close the political process to outsiders, the Democrats and Republicans dampen the influence of individual
voters while ensuring the collective power of their two-party system, no matter which one of the parties is ruling.
The United States government has three primary tasks: make laws, enforce
laws, and spend tax dollars; and three branches with which to accomplish these tasks: the legislative, the judicial, and the executive. Thanks to the system of checks and balances all three branches participate in all three tasks; butroughly speaking the legislative branch makes the laws and spends the taxes, the executive branch enforces the laws and blesses the tax-spending ideas, and the judicial branch decides what to do when someone breaks one (or more) of the laws. This whole apparatus, as elegantly outlined in The United States Constitution,
works pretty well.
The modern two-party political system was an afterthought, a mutation affixed to our nation more
than a half century after The Constitution was signed. For the first fifty years of its life, America essentially had one political group,ironically
named the Democratic Republicans. Led by Thomas Jefferson, the Democratic Republicans dominated the political landscape well into the early 1800's. Jefferson co-authored The Declaration of Independence and once famously
said, "If I could not go to heaven but with a party, I would not go there at all."In the 1820's, despite Jefferson's sentiments, the Democratic Republican party began to split over the issue of whether the United States should have a national bank or an independent treasury, evidently a white-hot issue at the time. Proponents of the national bank called themselves National Republicans and proponents of the independenttreasury took the name Democrat. Andrew Jackson, the first leader of the Democrats and the father of the modern Democratic Party, was elected President in 1828 and again in 1832. In 1836, the National Republicans changed their name to the Whigs (a clear branding error) and ran William Henry Harrison against Martin Van Buren. Van Buren won the election andthe Democrats remained in control for another four years. Harrison finally won for the Whigs in 1840. James Polk won for the Democrats in 1844, and then Zachary Taylor wrested control back for the Whigs in 1848. The Whig party began to split in 1852 over the issue of slavery. During the next few years most southern Whigs joined the pro-slavery Democrats while most Northern Whigs joined the anti-slavery Democrats to form a new party, which took the name Republican. Lead by Abraham Lincoln, the Republicans won the election in 1860. And so goes the rough history of how we ended up where we are. Since the end of the American Civil War the two modern political parties -- Democrats and Republicans -- have waged a war on the influence of the individual voter by instituting election processes and regulations -- the primary system,
the winner-take-all philosophy of the Electoral College, and campaign finance regulation -- that build the power of the two-party system at the expense of the individual voter. We don't need a nation of strict Constitutionalists, but it'sgood to know what the original plan was. The two-party system was not part of the original plan.
Both Democrats and Republicans are pretty bad, particularly right now. But it's the two-party system that is failing us more than either party. We need to re-shape the basic legislative environment to make all politicians more effective. A good start is dismantling the two-party system.
All it takes to accomplish this is one simple act that carries little risk and no expense: become an independent voter. Without the baggage of a party affiliation, you will be free to think indpendently. And without any members, the Democratic and Republican parties won't exist; and the two-party system will be dismantled. If one-by-one we all become independent voters, the Democratic and Republican parties will lose their monolithic structures and take on different roles, perhaps alongside the many other legislative think tanks that populate the political landscape, all of which would then be contributing to a more rich and healthy political dialogue. Once the clear majority of us are independent
voters, most politicians and candidates will abandon their party affiliation and become independent themselves. Becoming independent voters is one simple step we can all take back toward the independent thinking on which our country was founded and with which it has flourished for so long. I hate buck-passing, including when a Romney spokesman stated, “Obama has piled up national debt and presided over high unemployment.”Didn’t President Obama and his majority house and senate make the problem worse, and much of Congress whose heads are buried in sand contribute? Doesn’t Congress refuse to cut spending to alleviate a national debt of nearly $51,000 for every
American, including each baby born today?
When Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney prodded our nation into two wars, (the first one was necisary)
didn’t the wealthy ask for trickle-down economics to improve the economy? And
didn’t Bush eagerly agree, encouraging Congress to provide tax cuts? Didn’t the
wealthy improve economies in other nations by off-shoring/outsourcing
manufacturing and support jobs? (Huffingtonpost.com states 42,400 U.S. factories
closed; 5.1 million manufacturing jobs lost in 2010.) "You see? I am even sparing with both sides"
We can stop this if we try.
Below are some links to help you take action right now and help us help all of us.
HERE ARE SOME PROPOSALS WE NEED TO MAKE:
1) WE NEED A DATA BASE FOR EACH candidate, WHICH WILL SHOW EVERYTHING ABOUT THAT PERSON, (back ground check).
2) TERM LIMITS, - WILL BE 3 TERMS ONLY, AND NO LIFE TIME FULL PAY, AND PROTECTION.
3) ALL OF CONGRESS HAS TO USE THE LAWS THEY MAKE, SUCH AS HEALTH CARE FOR ONE.
4) WHEN SPENDING GETS AS HIGH, OR CLOSE TO GDP GROWTH, ALL MEMBERS THAT VOTED FOR IT, LOOSE THERE JOB,
OR THEY CAN’T RUN AGAIN.
5) THERE WILL BE A FAIR PAY FOR MEMBERS ON A LOWER SCALE, AND THEY WILL GET A BONUS IF THEY DO THEIR JOB,
PLUS THEY CAN'T MAKE THERE OWN PAY RAISE, THERE WILL BE A PEOPL'S COMMITE THAT WILL DO THAT ALONG WITH INFORCING ALL ITEMS HERE
