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.

Be careful about calling for more national election laws

Be careful about calling for more national election laws

We’re starting to hear rumblings, mostly from Republicans, calling for national standardization of elections. It’s understandable that people are frustrated by what’s happening in Florida. Arizona and Georgia also have some questionable happenings. But it’s imperative as conservatives that we allow the states to fix the problems no matter how bad they may seem.

The biggest reason: the more the federal government gets involved in just about anything, the easier it will be for voter fraud, counting mishaps, and election official corruption to occur. Take, for example, calls ringing out again for national voter ID. Would it make it harder for non-citizens to vote? Perhaps. But it also runs the risk of catastrophic failure when we centralize and/or digitize the voting system itself. Not only will all of our eggs be in one basket that becomes a single point of failure, but it also slows the process of adjusting against threats. Sophisticated vote manipulators in or out of the country would love nothing more than a federalized voting system.

Taking away the states’ responsibility to administer their voting protocols takes away their accountability as well. Calls for centralization of nearly every other component of administration, from education to the environment to healthcare, has resulted in horrific results that greatly overshadowed the localized problems they were intended to fix.

Some states are having major problems with elections. These states must fix their problems. When the federal government gets involved in sweeping changes that force solutions for isolated cases on the rest of the country, more problems arise. The benefits are greatly outweighed by the detriments.

Broward County Election Supervisor Brenda Snipes is incompetent, corrupt, or both. She needs to be replaced and the voting process in Florida needs to be fixed. Let Broward County and Florida replace her and fix their voting process. It may be hard to have faith in the county and state, but do we really have more faith in Washington DC? Should we be calling for more centralized voting laws and protocols because of a few persons’ gross negligence?

No.

It’s frustrating when local officials can affect national elections, but that’s why people can vote them out and force reforms. Where it’s broken, let those states fix it. Bringing in a DC solution will give us DC results, and that’s almost never a good thing.

Bipartisanship has two major downsides

Bipartisanship has two major downsides

The GOP losing control of the House of Representatives completely changes the course Washington DC will take over the next two years or more. For whatever reason, most Americans don’t seem to understand the repercussions. Most know this means the Democrats can start doing more things against President Trump even if they don’t quite understand the power of subpoena. They know this will slow down the President’s agenda, but probably don’t understand the degree of deadlock this creates.

Democrats won’t be able to get legislation through because of the Senate, and even if they could they’d be blocked by veto. Republicans can’t get any legislation through because of the House. Anything that is not bipartisan such as infrastructure will not even be attempted for at least two years. Since there are very few possible pieces of legislation that can be considered bipartisan, we can expect very little to be done.

That’s the good news.

There shouldn’t be much done. That’s how DC is supposed to operate. It’s supposed to be slow and methodical. The founders envisioned a federal government that could basically only push forward legislation that both sides of the political aisle agreed to, at least in part. Remember, the didn’t like a party system and they definitely didn’t want a two-party system, but that’s how our government has evolved. Perhaps it was inevitable for two parties to split power incessantly, but the founders hoped we would avoid such a mess.

While it’s good for things to move slowly in DC, there are two big problems with it and we’re about to face both of them. The first can best be described as half-measures. The solution to a problem that can get bipartisan support is almost always loaded with political backscratching. One of the reasons the bureaucracy is so big is because politicians have been packing things into their bills for decades. It’s like a bribe – “We’ll include a sugar subsidy in the bill in exchange for your support of our tax hike, Mr. Florida Senator.”

The second problem is the tendency for bipartisan projects to be gargantuan and expensive. The aforementioned infrastructure fix is the perfect example. President Trump, Senators Schumer and McConnell, and possible future Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi have all discussed infrastructure at one point or another in the past couple of years. Rumors and leaks have indicated such a bill would cost over a trillion dollars. There’s also much talk about attempting a public-private partnership to make it work.

As we face a trillion dollar deficit next year, any thought of spending more money is ludicrous. However, it’s appealing to politicians on both sides because it would create jobs and represents a tangible benefit people can actually experience in their daily lives. It’s not a question of whether both sides can come together on it. The only question is how they’ll divide up credit for it.

In the end, taxpayers will feel the pain. The budget deficit will rise. The national debt will continue to grow at an untenable pace. All the while, Mr. President and Madam Speaker will be giving each other fist bumps.

We don’t need bipartisanship. We need nonpartisanship. The real solutions America needs all point towards limiting government, cutting spending, and pushing more power to the state, local, and individual levels.

Pete Sessions’ limited government message is exactly what we need to hear

Pete Session's limited government message is exactly what we need to hear

It isn’t often you see a politician operating in Washington DC say something that goes against the common claim that Washington DC must fix everything. The power grabs on Capitol Hill and the White House happen all the time regardless of the party. Democrats may be better at it, but Republicans have been pushing for bigger government for a while.

There are a few notable exceptions. Representative Pete Sessions (R-TX) is one of them. The Congressman has been an advocate of federalism in which states have an equal say on most issues. It’s hard to wrest power from DC politicians, but thankfully some of them, such as Sessions, are cognizant of the Constitution’s separation of powers between federal and state governments.

“We have to allow people in the states to make their own decisions, to get government agencies out of the way and let local people make decisions about what’s best for them.”

Texans need to help keep America heading in the right direction by putting Pete Sessions on Capitol Hill where he belongs. This race is too important to let it slip through our fingers.
