Federalists

Victim Mentality and the Two Party System

Published

on

It is time for Americans to stop sitting around wringing their hands. The government only has its heel on our collective neck because we allowed it to happen. The Republican Party is not going to save America, as they are forever branded with a modern-day Zachary Taylor. The Democrat party is not going to save America because they are embracing socialism. The Federalist Party is the vehicle that can get us there, but what remains to be seen is whether or not the American people are savvy enough to turn the key and start the engine.

A system designed to limit America

America is not locked into a two-party system, but voters have been brainwashed into thinking this is the case. All through the 2016 election cycle, we heard “well, they are the only two choices, we must pick the lesser of two evils.” Criminal Hillary and mentally imbalanced Donald were not our only two choices; we merely allowed two big corrupt machines to convince us that was the case. It is time to wrest that control out of their hands.

Confusion, anyone?

There is a curious demographic of individuals who are supposedly NeverTrump, NeverHillary and claim they are utterly appalled at the level to which these parties have sunk; however, they are still members. Why? I have yet to hear a single reason that makes any sense at all.

Even the Bible says a double minded man is unstable in all his ways. If you belong to one of these parties, then you are aiding their agenda, even if only by giving them one more name to claim for their stats. If you want to see new parties push them off the map, you need to do one simple thing, leave.

Waiting for the Federalist Party to grow before letting go of the security blanket of the GOP or the Democrat Party is an exercise in futility. The way to cripple these two monsters is to put on our big boy pants and our high heels and walk away. They will never be neutered when people insist on staying in their cesspools, buckling under their corruption, or giving them money in exchange for prestige, even though deep down they know they are selling their souls.

The courage to escape Egypt

In Exodus, when Moses led God’s chosen people away from Egypt, it was probably extremely scary. Even though they were not happy working as slaves for Pharaoh and leading oppressed lives, they probably had shaking hands and pounding hearts when they began their journey into the unknown. They did it, though, and got to do awesome things like watch seas part and have manna rain down from Heaven. It is time for Americans to do the same.

Unfortunately, many supposed independent thinkers believe it is enough to walk around saying how great they think the Federalist Party is or posting memes about how awful the other parties are and otherwise waiting for the cake to rise before adding the flour. It does not work that way.

Getting Linus to give up his blanket

If you are unhappy with your party and do not believe the country is going in the right direction, why are you hanging on to that party affiliation like Linus with his blanket? It is time to launch out in faith and make a full commitment to a Party like the Federalist that is 100 percent dedicated to following the Constitution you claim you love and rejecting the big government you claim you hate.

Stop polishing your list of excuses and take the plunge

The Federalist Party can absolutely demolish the two Parties of Corruption and recruit candidates who will refuse to swim in the DC swamp–which will never be drained as long as Republicans and Democrats are in control. Unfortunately, procrastination may be the kiss of death.

Your parties have not been loyal to you, why should you be loyal to your parties? America can have a happy, productive, peaceful, joyful, optimistic future if citizens do one simple thing. Unshackle themselves from the diseased, self-serving, anti-American parties of corruption and start again with a Party that wants to revive a Constitution-following America in which everyone can thrive, grow and enjoy life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Where’s the flaw in that? Let’s just do it.

    I agree with all that you said but you might want to let us know were President Taylor went wrong. Either as a response to this comment, or better yet a follow up piece. We know where his party went wrong (Whig), but I told you a thing or two about Maurice Duverger in my previous pieces.

    It’s Durverger’s law in part that is keeping people clinging to that blanket of security.

      LOL. He went wrong by being a foul-mouthed, hateful, nasty, vengeful, bully who took a job for which he was entirely unqualified and 8 years later the Whig Party ceased to exist.

        It would still make a great piece if you can supply the much needed meat.

          I posted the link here to the article I already DID on Zachary Taylor back in august. It had plenty of meat if you would like to read it.

          Don, in all due respect, and I am sure my comment will be censored off, you sound like a know-it-all. Do you even know who Jesse is? Regardless, whether you do or not, I hate to speak FOR her…but she does not need your advice. She has written TONS of articles on Zachary Taylor over the past two years..INCLUDING for this site, AND talked about him countless times on the radio show she co-hosts. This article was FULL of meat. She had an objective and she met it, even if it was not YOURS. Furthermore…there’s always that good ole google bar that people can use to educate THEMSELVES if they hear a name they’re not familiar with, although anyone who does not know who Taylor is I have to wonder about. This was a great article Jesse. Rock on! They don’t call you the Rockin’ Chic for nothing! OXOX

    Great, great, GREAT ARTICLE because you are absolutely right on! People need to STAND UP and take action to leave the liberalist and confused hypocritical parties and join one like The Federalist party that REALLY is FOR the people and the CONSTITUTION! And thank you for thoroughly covering Zachary Taylor in other posts! Well done!

    Give us more SOON! Good job!

    I don’t normally defend my work to those who find it lackluster, as I rarely have the time and probably would not spend it that way if I DID. Nevertheless, this article was not “lacking” any “much need meat,” although its point may have been lost on certain readers. It was not about history, dates, former presidents or anything super technical. The message was simple: “If you want the Federalist Party to grow, you need to walk away from the two corrupt monsters first. The time is coming when people need to get on, get off or get out of the way. Trying to hang on to an affiliation with the parties that have corrupted America, yet claiming you support the Federalist Party makes no sense. People need to let go of the Big Party security blankets and dive in. That is, if they really mean business. And I think I made that point very well in this piece.

      I understand letting go of the two political parties part. Believe me, that I get. You need to remind before of Zac Taylor as I like to remind people of Maurice Duverger.

    This was a great article! I enjoyed reading it and totally agree with everything you wrote. It’s amazing to me how many people simply DON’T HAVE the COURAGE to walk away from the Democratic and Republican parties even when they are DISILLUSIONED with their parties! It’s exactly like Linus and his blanket. I’ve let go of my blanket. I have no illusions about the GOP. It’s time for the rest of the country to follow Jesse’s lead. HELLOOOO OUUTTT THERE! TIME TO WAKE UP! Sadly, a lot of people are sleeping through even the most dreadful of wake up calls. Keep rockin’ Jesse. Love your pieces! Remember, those who criticize vehemently are usually deep down worried or scared, having heard the wake up and having been reminded of the truth of what’s going on in America today.

    It is a delight to read Broadt’s articles. I am the original skeptic, therefore I check the facts on any article I read to be sure the author is writing factually, and I have never uncovered anything non-factual that Broadt had written. Not many writers are willing to tackle such controversial subjects and then “take the heat” over it. I do hope you continue to write. Your articles are exemplary, even to the point where such writing could be a template for new writers who are struggling to research, write and hope his/her pieces are acceptable. I am always surprised to see such incredible articles by Broadt, though I should be used to it by now. I enjoy articles that compel the reader to think, and Broadt has done that. Thank you, Ms. Broadt, for another fascinating piece.

How does the Federalist Society relieve stress? “But Gorsuch” stress balls, of course.

Published

on

But Gorsuch

Conservatives who aren’t pleased with the actions, direction, and/or rhetoric coming out of the White House often invoke a simple phrase: “But Gorsuch!” It’s intended to remind them that no matter what the current administration does that goes against limited-government principles, at least they can find solace in a Constitution-loving judge being appointed by President Trump to the Supreme Court.

This popular meme made its way to the Federalist Society’s annual convention as the R Street Institute, a free-market think tank, distributed stress balls to attendees. Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch’s image and the famous words of solace were printed on the balls.

No matter how bad it gets, remember that it could have been worse, at least from the bench.

Weissmann said the R Street Institute made 150 balls, which it started distributing when the Federalist Society’s annual convention began in Washington on Thursday. The think tank had about 50 balls remaining Friday, with attendees coming to get them while Weissmann spoke with a reporter.

The Obamacare Debacle: Why we need a second political party

Published

on

By

Sometimes you simply hope that your predictions will be wrong and that events will miraculously turn out differently; unfortunately, this is not one of those times. Most people with a modicum of common sense anticipated that the Republicans would now take the blame for the troubles of Obamacare, and that has come to pass.  The aphorism ‘You broke it, you bought it’ comes to mind, and while somewhat unfair to the situation, perception is reality in the world of politics.

Tear it down and start over.

While not endeavoring to reign blows upon a deceased equine, this is why the Republican party needed to keep its promise on Obamacare. It’s also the reason why it’s time to sweep away the old and begin anew with a brand new second major political party. That phrase was deliberately used because it has become quite evident that the Republican and Democratic parties have started to merge in far too many ways.

The Obamacare debacle is a prime illustration of this unfortunate merging. O’Sullivan’s First Law explains this to a fair degree since the denizens of a certain party will – over time – want to keep the bureaucratic levers of power with the false idea that they can have it run more efficiently. Besides the simple expedient of term limits, a new party could start anew with a mandate to avoid this political trap.

An illustration from the world of engineering seems more than appropriate in this instance. There are times when a machine or structure has become so riddled with worn out or failed components that it is far better to simply scrap or tear it down and build something from scratch. The aphorism is to start with a clean sheet of paper such that the old assumptions and constructs are swept away in favor of something entirely new and innovative. “We’ve always done it this way” is replaced with questioning skepticism with regard to what works, and what doesn’t.

Existing components that have proven to be of service can be utilized in the new construct but only if they meet certain criteria, not simply because they are carried along with everything else of the old. By the same token, members of the old party can become a vital part of the new but only if they are up to the task.

The final word on the Republican party.

It is more than likely that the people responsible for that bureaucratic mess will use it to good political advantage against those who opposed it in the first place. We should be getting rid of governmental interference in the free market, but instead will see a complete control with national socialist healthcare [i.e., the ‘single payer’ deception].

There is no other choice than to limit the damage now with a new party that will stay true to conservative principles. The results of the alternative are too horrible to contemplate.

Democrats

Damaged Democrats win big despite party crumbling. What does that say about the GOP?

Published

on

There was a headline earlier today that caught my attention, not because it was surprising but because of the source: CNN. The story’s headline was, “Poll: Views of Democratic Party hit lowest mark in 25 years.”

In case it ever gets changed or deleted, I even took a screenshot:

Views of Democrats CNN

Later the same night, Democrats win Virginia, New Jersey, and New York City. Though the latter two were expected, the Virginia race was supposed to be a toss up. As of the writing of this article, Ralph Northam was up by nearly five points on Ed Gillespie. Fears that the Libertarians may sway the election were negated by Northam getting over 50% of the vote.

How do we reconcile these two opposing ideas? Are the Democrats crumbling? Yes. Did they win big in the only major election day of 2017? Yes.

There was a time not too long ago when I said the only thing going for the Republicans and their alleged “civil war” is that the Democrats are experiencing the same if not worse. I stand by that statement. The Democrats really are cracking up as they seem intent on pushing as far to the left as they’re allowed by their base. This is worrisome because the part of the party that was once considered the fringe is now falling in line with people like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. Cory Booker and Kamala Harris are jumping on board. Nearly every emerging movement friendly with the party is pushing for them to move ever closer to communism. They are leaving most of America behind… just like the Republicans.

It’s different for the GOP, though. They’re not losing people because they’re becoming too radical. They’re losing people because they’re becoming too moderate politically while embracing the bombastic style of their leader. These factors combine to give us two major parties that are completely out of touch with what America needs and what their constituents want.

The GOP will play this off as races that were always tilted towards the Democrats and they’d be correct, but this was also supposed to be a continuation of the strides they made a year ago when they broke through to win some tough races. This year, not so much.

America hasn’t been as ready to explore third party alternatives since the 19th century. Between the failed policies of both parties and the rise of Americans realizing they don’t like either major party, it gives me hope that the Federalist Party, which I co-founded, has an opportunity to make an impact in the near future.
