Is the two party system broken?
Many people are staunch Republicans or staunch Democrats who vote the party line only to be disappointed due to the lack of accountability, undeliverable promises and simply “Rubber Stamping” the party line. Maybe, its time we had more choices. As history has shown us in the past, Voting Unaffiliated may be the answer.
Manifest Destiny, or the divine inspiration that drove America to its exceptionalism, has always been a part of our tradition and values. On both sides of the Rockies, we are well rooted in those early values of Country, Church, Community and Family. Then as today, Colorado’s individual ruggedness is more than one who is just sitting on a fence; its about taking action. As a result, it is deeply embedded into one of reason, consideration and evaluation, not into a party of politics.
Today, we see a two-party system that has strayed away from our traditional notions of substantial justice and fairplay. Everyday we are lied to by politicians who are driven by special interests with little, if any, regard to what those who voted for them want, believe or desire. For decades, a majority of those of us in Colorado have chosen not to vote for the lesser of two evils by not voting at all. This behavior has not only spread to our state but is endemic throughout the U.S. Today, lobbyists draw more politicians than flies on cow-diddy.
We need to look at our Nation’s past to find the answers. As the Country established it’s Independence, it then wrestled with the construction of our Constitution. It became clear that we should not have power concentrated into a few, as that is where tyrannical rule develops. Even as our county was proceeding towards a Civil War, there were more than four political parties, not just two.
Now, in the 21st Century, we are faced with a crisis. I believe our two-party system is broken. It is locked in two-party bickering, “rubber stamping” the party line, embracing special interests, and out-of -control spending, which runs against our country’s foundations and beliefs. To break the political gridlock, the people of Colorado and America need to vote Unaffiliated in 2010
A vote for an Unaffiliated candidate in 2010 will be a vote to fix a system that is broken. The moment in history is today. Your vote can help make a difference in making it happen. You need a voice of reason and compromise that will remain objective to the issues. The broken cycle does not need to continue to spin out of control. This vision has always been with us; our direction is clear. We have manifested destiny, we can create a better future for us, ourselves and our children. Now is that moment. Your vote does make a difference!
Vote for an Unaffiliated in 2010. The power of prayer is true, God bless America, and God bless you.
