At this point in the long and revolting primary fiasco,
the two party monopoly plays out their orchestrated selection charade for all to see. The most amazing and pathetic attitude
among a politically frustrated electorate is why another one can or will provide their consent with the final outcome. The
fundamental failure in the American political system is based upon a phony two party opposition. Friends and foes alike, the
first lesson in understanding our politically imposed despotism is that elections never allow for real choice. The careerist
political class always prevents honest reformers from gaining real power.
Yet, optimistic idealists and cynical realists keep going to the polls to cast their vote
for the only candidates that party hacks allow to be placed on the ballot. Dumb and dumber should be the only names affixed
under Democrat and Republican Party endorsements.
Under a cozy arrangement that authorize and staffs county level election commissions as bipartisan gatekeepers to
filter out unreliable upstarts and oversee the vote count from preprogrammed election machines, how legitimate can this contrived
As long as elections are managed
under Democrats and Republican Parties loyalists, the outcome will always be to protect and serve the establishment power
brokers. Dam the wishes of the people; the cabal of co-conspired elites talks their ideological dribble, but act in unison
to expand the collectivist state. How can this medieval feudalism be challenged?
The original subject in the “Dueling Twins” series was Third Parties. The crossfire style of debate proved successful to illustrate the difference in outlook from the loony left and the rabid right.
elections are an expression of consent, why is turn out so low for Third Parties? And if discontent was heightened, why are
there not more Third Parties? The answer lies in the election returns. The fact that a majority of eligible voters no long
take part in the process speaks volumes of their support. The public is stating their choice loud and clear: "NONE of
the ABOVE". This is the Third Party that wins the election. When the public deems that there is no 'real' difference
between the two parties and that their self interests cannot be furthered with their vote, the electoral system breaks down.
Yes, the public is frustrated; but they conclude that their vote will never, effectively, change the status quo among the
choices that are available. Their lack of participation should not be misread as satisfaction for the current condition.”
The thunderous crowds that flock to Bernie Sanders
and Donald Trump rallies proves that first time voters, the disillusioned and the disenfranchised are attracted to populist
substance. Both from the left or the right, the mobilizing message for a self-ruling voice in their government has found acceptance.
Even with all this election cycle momentum, the Party elites have rigged their anointment process against both Sanders and
The smart money is bet on a final
selection other than Bernie or “The Donald”. You ask how the will of the people can be so easily ignored.
Well, that is the pattern of the Democrat and Republican Party bosses; namely, only allow the safe candidates committed to
continue the crime syndicate rule of America.
In another of the original BATR columns penned over fifteen years ago, The Meaning of Third Parties in America, indicates that both parties are dedicated big government advocates.
“The solution to implement meaningful reform is to defuse the political
power that is presently concentrated within the ‘Tweedle-dumb and Tweedle Dee' parties. The notion that differences
between them are based upon core principles, denies the unending descent into 'collectivism'. The edges have varied shapes,
but the centers are formed from the same sponge.”
If you keep voting between donkeys and elephants, you will be swimming in their feces. The metaphor in Fatalistic Reality and Election Futility, compares a staged and fixed sporting contest with the most manipulated and disgusting swindle in our political culture.
“Third party candidates
dare upset the rigged pugilistic contest at their own risk. Boxing matches are always staged between two-tied old punched
drunk combatants that work for the same promoter. Even when a young upstart is cast into the ring, the results remain the
same. Take a dive if ordered, or become the darling of the crowd it serves to fleece the public at the gate.
Elections are not different
from professional prizefighting, but shares one additional nuance. The spectacle is the ultimate theater of the absurd. With
each, foreign adventure the only victory consolidates the imperium dictatorship. The body count mounts, as the injuries bleed
betrayed blood. While the global despots add new chapters to their conglomerate domain, collateral damage is swept off the
stage as garbage, since the value of life is relative in the realm of Totalitarian Collectivism.”
