Considering the widespread dissatisfaction and outright anger at what’s taking place in Washington these days, why would a single person in vote for either the Republicans or Democrats in next month’s election? Look at what these two parties have done:
An $850 billion bailout, increasing inflation, $12 billion a month for a needless war in Iraq, the Katrina clean-up debacle, an astronomical national debt, the 9-11 false-flag terror attacks, more arms sales, and billions for Israel, Patriot Act legislation, votescam elections, the housing collapse, continued outsourcing, increased unemployment, and continuing graft, greed, and deceit.
Yet in the 2004 presidential election, 99 percent of those who cast a ballot voted for either George W. Bush or John Kerry (both Skull & Bones members). That means only 1 percent of voters selected someone running from a third party. When I asked Constitution Party candidate Chuck Baldwin about this sorry state of affairs, he quoted Albert Einstein. “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” He added, “It is insane to continue voting for establishment candidates and expecting anything to change in D.C.”
Baldwin is correct. It’s easy for us to complain about our representation (or lack thereof) in the nation’s capital, but the fault primarily lies with each of us. Nobody holds a gun to our heads when we enter a polling booth.
We’re absolutely free to pull whatever lever we so desire. Still, we keep sending Democrats and Republicans to Washington.
According to Baldwin, Americans have been conditioned to vote inside the system by our national media, education system, and churches. When asked about religious leaders, Baldwin explained, “They’re no different than anyone else in that they choose the path of least resistance. Any thought outside the mainstream is so foreign to them that they don’t even entertain it. Going outside the system requires a great deal of personal volition and effort. Regrettably, people are generally lazy and don’t want to do the work necessary to reason out any alternatives. Freedom is hard work, and the two-party system keeps playing us against each other.”
Luckily, Baldwin continued, populist champion Ron Paul—who recently endorsed him—“has planted seeds in the ground which will start growing in people’s hearts and minds. After all, how much longer can we continue moving in this direction before we lose the very principles and foundation upon which this country was founded? The American people need to stand up against the fear that is being used against them, such as with the recent bailout bill. The power elite in Washington aren’t going to retreat, and we can’t either.”
When questioned as to his expectations on November 4, Baldwin said, “I’d be thrilled to see the American people deny the two major candidates an electoral victory. In other words, neither one gets the necessary 270 votes, so the election would then have to be decided in the House. That would be a moral victory for third party candidates, and a significant paradigm shift for the future.” Baldwin added:
“For months before the 2004 election, my mantra was: vote for anybody but Bush or [Sen. John] Kerry. The same advice applies this year. Vote for anybody but McCain or Obama. Imagine if every single person in the United States who chose to vote this fall refused to select the Republican or Democratic candidate. Not only would we be able to finally start breaking their monopoly, but the powers-that-be wouldn’t be able to fall back on votescam because nobody would have voted for their two-headed candidates. In light of how close our country is to a major meltdown due to decades of corrupt rule by the Democrats and Republicans, destiny is now in our hands. Don’t throw your vote away by supporting Obama or McCain. This year, make it count.”
