Our Democratic and Republican opponents are well on the way to committing political suicide, and we should cheer them along. Most Americans have worked out that the Republican Party is the party of corrupt overage white male bigots catering to a diminishing collection of voters.
(If you want to see real bigotry at its worst, come to Massachusetts web sites and look at MassResistance.org, Republican homophobic hatemongering of the vilest sort, not to mention the friends who advertise their events, groups like the Massachusetts “Liberty Protection Association”.)
Young people are rejecting the Republican Party by 2-1 or more. Persons of color and recently arrived ethnic minorities are rejecting the Republicans by 2-1, 3-1, and even 15-1. But many of those people, as they gain an understanding of American political parties, are going to realize that they may loathe Republicanism, but they do not really like the Democrats, either.
And that is our opportunity. Across the world, in almost every western country, the end of the cold war brought the end of the cold war political parties — or their transformation beyond recognition — and there is every reason to support that the same is happening here. Consider the new failures of the Democratic-Republican parties:
The Bush Nationalist Socialist Republican Party substantially nationalized the bank system and launched a ‘bailout’ scheme of every sort, most kept secret from the Congress that funded it. The Obama International Socialist Democrats are continuing the scheme, which was overwhelmingly rejected by the American people. American taxpayers have no use for the two and a half trillion in additional Federal borrowing — this year — let alone for the thieving anticapitalist plundercrats who are taking the loot, not to mention their media tools who propagandized for the bail (that’s spelled L-O-O-T) out. The probable failure of the Obama spending campaign — every dollar Obama gives to someone to spend is a dollar sucked vampirically from the pocket of some other spender — stands likely to create a crisis for the American Keynesian welfare state.
The Obama Democratic Party has apparently decided to continue the Bush Republican war party campaign against the people of Afghanistan. The Kingdom of Afghanistan is justly remembered as the graveyard of empires. The British Imperialists invaded it during the First Afghan War. A British army went in. A single Briton escaped to report the fate of his fellows. The Russian Soviet Imperialists invaded near the end of the Cold War. Much of their army escaped. The Russian Soviet Empire did not survive the experience. Now an American Army has invaded Afghanistan, imposed a satrap who lives only because his bodyguard is composed largely of American mercenaries, and is noticing that Afghani patriots have substantially disrupted the American supply line through the Khyber pass. The Obama Democratic Party offers more war, when the American people desire peace.
The Libertarian political movement offers the alternatives most Americans want but do not know how to reach. We offer peace, liberty, and prosperity . We only need a better political structure to advance to victory.
