Why bother? That’s antithetical to common thought, I know. But it’s true. Look at how Obama’s abnegated virtually everything he originally and allegedly stood for. His most ardent acolytes and apostles have jumped ship. Here’s more of Quigley’s quote that forms the basis of my belief system. sadly, I admit.
“The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can ‘throw the rascals out’ at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy” (Georgetown University Professor Carroll Quigley, Tragedy and Hope, 1966.)
By perpetuating this canard through voting for the “lesser of two evils” (who, last time I checked, is still evil) we just ask for more of the same and we get it. We’re being held hostage for a two-party system that’s two sides of the same coin.
Video, anyone? This might explicate in a different way.
