Making a new year’s resolution is one of those traditions anyone can do. It’s personal. It’s your business and no one else needs to know — kind of like voting. You go into the booth, do your thing, and afterwards, depending on the outcome of the elections, you can even lie about it. Nobody really needs to know how you voted.
A lot of folks make resolutions to do things like lose weight or get into shape, only to feel guilty when they fail, especially when they made a big deal about it and everybody was expecting to see results. Then they swear off making any more new year’s resolution ever again. Well, you don’t have to be embarrassed. Just don’t tell anyone what your new year’s resolution is. And when people ask, just smile and say, “It’s a secret.”
Have you had enough of the Republicans and Democrats? They promise solutions but keep creating more problems. And it always costs you and me in decreased freedom and increased taxation. And all we do is keep re-electing more Republicans and Democrats. Things just keep going from bad to worse. My suggestion? If enough voters reject the two major political parties, the balance of power could return to the people, where it belongs. Resolve this year not to vote for anyone with an R or a D after their name.
You can change your party registration if you want, but bottom line, you don’t have to tell anyone. Just make it your new year’s resolution to vote for third party candidates. Nobody needs to know, until after the votes are counted. America needs politicians who represent the people, not the party line. Add your vote to the growing number of citizens who are realizing how their political parties have betrayed their core beliefs, and are turning to other political parties.You can read an article citing statistics on this trend at:
You see, for the longest time, the two major political parties have kept a strangle hold on the freedoms of Americans. They have shared in the burgeoning growth of government size and government spending. They have both shared in the trend of greater central control (a Socialist and/or Communist trait) at the expense of reduced local and State control, which violates the Constitution. They have both shared in focusing on global issues at the expense of national issues. They have both shared in bringing the United States of America to the brink of financial and cultural ruin. The whole world used to either look up to us or fear us. Now, most other countries laugh at us or are ashamed for us.
By pointing their political pinkies at each other, the Republicans and Democrats have kept you convinced that it’s the other political party that’s to blame; only the other political party is evil; only the other political party is the enemy. While I recognize that there are a few decent Republicans and Democrats, who are concerned for our nation in general, their parties do not give them free reign to represent their own constituents. Rather, they are dictated to by party leadership on what exactly they are to do. If they fight against the short leash policy of the party, they are called “mavericks” and cut off from all opportunities such as committee chairmanships. The only way to get ahead is to play ball, so they end up representing their party first, and the people second — and then only at election time, in order to be re-elected.
Make your new year’s resolution to vote for a third party candidate — anyone but a Democrat or Republican! Nothing would perk up government more than to have a Congress without either a Democrat or Republican majority. It would really shake things up if the third largest political party (the Constitution Party) won a majority. Try to imagine the government actually being held to the standards of the Constitution. Now that would be different! If enough so-called “third party” candidates are elected, it’ll keep the political process honest. If you think multiple parties would cause gridlock, how can it possibly be any worse than the two-way stalemate we have now? The power politics of the two major parties need to be done away with. In stead, government needs to represent the will of the people who have been ignored for far too long.
Vote for third party candidates and congress will look more like America. We are a nation of diverse people, but we should be a nation first, not an international region under the auspices of the United Nations. We deserve to have a government that represents us, not the international community. We need a government who cares first for our nation, and makes treaties and laws that benefit us first. Both the major political parties are hand in glove with internationalism. That means a loss of nationalism, a loss of sovereignty, a loss of freedom and a loss of any meaning for words like “citizen” or “constitutional rights”.
The only hope for returning to the constitutional republic envisioned by our founders is to give the power back to the people. Right now, only third parties honestly represent American interests. The two major parties have shamelessly let freedom down. They have created what amounts to an oligarchy who rules without regard to its own citizens. Because they “know best”, they have allowed activist judges to nullify the democratic process by overriding State laws. In addition, they have done nothing to keep the media honest, but rather colluded with media to bolster their political influence.
Will you share in taking back our freedom by refusing to vote either D or R in 2012? In your heart of hearts, resolve to vote for third party candidates. Wouldn’t it be refreshing if the Republicans and Democrats got so few votes that they became “third parties”? I believe that might even make them honest, too. “Power to the People.” … a radical motto in it’s time. But it sure is what we need now.
Make that resolution.
