What if both parties are the same?
Live Leak ^ | Pre-election 2012 | Judge Napolitano

Posted on 01/10/2014 8:23:18 AM PST by Baynative

I just saw this video from before the last election. It is Judge Napolitano talking about the unchecked growth and influence of government.

(Excerpt) Read more at liveleak.com ...


TOPICS:
KEYWORDS: foxnews; government; judgenapolitano; napolitano; obama; parties; paulites; ronpaul; uniparty
In talking about the need to look beyond the media spin for some Ron Paul discussion before the last election, he was also clearly stating much of the impetus behind the growth of the Tea Party.

I didn't think RP would make a good President, but I wanted some of his points to capture America's interest.

We always say the next election is the most important ever. But, I think if we don't turn this thing around soon it may never happen.

As long as the Federal Reserve exists and allows them to print and squirt as much money as they want in order to buy votes, there’s not a damn bit of difference between them.

I live in Maryland where Democrats have uncontested rule over us and I can testify that they are not the same.

There is a difference between ‘the same’ and ‘not different enough for my taste’, the second one is the case.

Was Napolitano on drugs or did he lose his mind?

Someone posted here many years ago that the election was about “which form of nominal socialism we want for the next four years.”

He was right. There is virtually no difference between the two major parties. Evenif a third party is elected, it is still very unlikely any of these laws, programs, cabinet departments, or policies will be repealed.

The tea party never has looked beyond the ‘R’ that is still trying to use them or co-opt them.

Ron Paul was the only candidate that was will to say ‘NO’ to the status quo that is the washington bi-artisan efite elite.

To para phrase Reagan, Dr Paul may have been our last best hope.

Zot me. FR ain’t what it used to be anyway.

It's The Socialist Democratic Party (consisting of the left wing - the Democratic Party and the right wing - the GOPe)
vs. The Tea Party and Sarah Palin.

It's Tyranny vs. Freedom.

It's the tyranny because of big government vs freedom because of small government that protects but does not interfere with your freedom.

Exactly! "What if....?"

My guess is that things would look exactly like they do now, with our Kabuki theater sparring match between IN YOUR FACE! progressive socialism in the formerly red, now blue corner and the kinder, gentler progressive socialism in the now pinkish, red corner.

Entertainment is the new opiate of the masses, so keep those party and candidate donations/contributions coming: The (political) show must go on!

Resistance is futile.

There are two parties. The taxpayers and the politicians. The only difference between D and R is what they want to squander our money on.

The Obama Administration Culture is based on lies, persecution of political opponents, and violating the US Constitution.

Under the leadership of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker of the House John Boehner, the GOP Establishment Congressional Culture is based on becoming more like the Obama Administration Culture.

By design, the GOP Establishment has become a doormat speed bump for Obamacrat politicians on the very wide, and well lighted Highway to European Socialism.

Without the capable cave-in expertise of McConnell and Boehner, the successful fundamental transformation of America into a weak, financially devastated, morally corrupt, unreliable, former World Power would not have been possible.

To those US Senators and House members who still support McConnell and Boehner, remember Einstein’s definition of insanity:

“INSANITY IS DOING THE SAME THING OVER AND OVER AGAIN AND EXPECTING DIFFERENT RESULTS.”

Correct. States and countries can and have survived rule by RINOs. They cannot long survive an ever lowering bar for rule by Marxists.

I used to agree with you and hold out hope that the two parties weren't merging as many people thought. BUt, the luer of beltway society became evident for me in the quick alliance of Marco Rubio and Chuck Schumer to push amnesty last year. The more I look the more I learn and now I am in agreement with the people who I used to laugh at when they told me it's a matter of how fast we go down the road to total government and socialism.

Not "IF", but "WHEN".

You are absolutely correct.

I just said that they are not ‘the same’.
I wasn't praising them or telling you to be hopeful LOL
‘the same’ is what I call a talk radio over-simplification.
Its an emotional trigger which is what that business is about.

Everyone has their own critical area of key issues, amnesty is key one for many, as with you.

But many others esp here will be upset if Obama gets to sign any bill, law, or budget that makes it through the Senate,

To all---read a book titled, "The President's Club". There you will see just how close these crude are. It is just one big happy family.

The difference between a Democrat President and a Republican President is the distance between your fore finger and your thumb held together as tight as you are able.

What federalist and anti-federalist alike feared most, was consolidated government, all power in the hands of a single central government. It is what we've had for a hundred years.

Elect whomever every two years and it won't matter, because power will still be shared among the uniparty in DC.

There is little time to exercise peaceful means to re-federalize government and just maybe restore our freedoms.

Exactly! Thankfully many Freepers are waking to this reality.

Truth is the Progressives are ruthless and unrelenting while conservatives are reactionary's that flare up then wither away as the Progressives say they are sorry, then quickly redirect their efforts.

I keep hearing that 92 million Americans have left the work force, yet the unemployment rate is less than 7%. According to The World Band Data we have a work force 158,686,472, that would seem more like 50% unemployment to me.

Labor Force, Total
Total labor force comprises people ages 15 and older who meet the International Labour Organization definition of the economically active population: all people who supply labor for the production of goods and services during a specified period. It includes both the employed and the unemployed. While national practices vary in the treatment of such groups as the armed forces and seasonal or part-time workers, in general the labor force includes the armed forces, the unemployed, and first-time job-seekers, but excludes homemakers and other unpaid caregivers and workers in the informal sector.

How about Chrispie?

He knows how to fight Dems

He closed that bridge and stuck them in traffic.

And he's a great deal by the pound.

“Resistance is futile.”

We’ve already been assimilated. How popular is it to talk about elections and how they usually change nothing? I don’t expect to hear that on sean hannity anytime soon.

Want a way to get people angry at you? Get into a conversation where politics is being discussed and suggest to those present that their vote is pretty much meaningless, and they’d be better off spending their time organizing their sock drawer.

And watch the fur fly.

“Good point for people who protest by sitting out elections.”

And how does participating in an election change anything, given that the uniparty controls ballot access, decides who may vote, decrees what the electoral procedures are, and then counts all the votes?

I suppose the argument could be made that the Union would have been better off without Virginia. In that sense, maybe you’re right.

Yeah, I think the republic would have been much happier without us pesky Virginians. The rest of the states could have had their monarchy with nary a whisper of protest, and we’d sell them their whiskey and peanuts.

Convincing you not to vote is a useful part of controling ballot access.

Patrick Henry didn't want to join the constitutional Union.

He also had high praise for the British monarchy.
