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.

          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.

There is no fix for Obamacare

There is no fix for Obamacare

At least not one that can maintain the virtues of a free market and the independence of the American consumer.

There have been many who have postulated that Obamacare was “rigged to fail”. Maybe that’s true, maybe it isn’t. But, I think it can be clearly inferred that it was not designed to be fixed with efforts that attempt to revive market forces or consumer choice and independence. You see, for the health insurance market, the ACA was a “total buy-in”. Its roots spread through the entire foundation of the Healthcare industry and its basic premise was a guarantee that too many consumers would become dependent on its mechanisms for continued coverage, that any alteration would appear dooming to large numbers of insured Americans.

While the ACA may not have been designed to fail, it was nevertheless designed to falter and its crafting was of such a manner so that the only way to prop it up was to move further towards socialized medicine. Any move to allow market forces to re-enter and re-invigorate the health insurance market would only hasten Obamacare’s collapse because it has been rigged to respond to such attempts catastrophically, so as to delegitimize such attempts.

Obamacare is quintessentially socialism in embryo. Capitalism cannot save it, for its precepts are counter-intuitive to the principles of the free market and consumer independence. The only way to save the health insurance system from inevitable, and possibly designed, collapse is Obamacare’s end.

This is why every Republican attempt to fix the health insurance market has been rated by the CBO and other entities as making more problems instead of less, and leading to less coverage instead of more, because as long as the bulk of Obamacare remains in place as the main propellant of the health insurance market and the healthcare industry, it will respond as designed and swirl out of control as the market becomes more and more confused by the application of counter-intuitive principles (socialism and capitalism). What we are witnessing in the steady collapse of the health insurance marketplace is a fast-paced demonstration of what American society has been steadily experiencing for over half a century: the failure of mixed economics. This foolish attempt to wed socialist ideas with capitalist ones ignorantly assumes that two fundamentally opposed economic models could be combined in a successful manner.

The only way to fix the health insurance market, and the only way to continue invigorating an American economy once the greatest and most industrious in the world, is to hack away the creeping vines of socialism taking hold of our economic sectors and reaffirm the benefits of market forces and, above all else, consumer independence. The fastest way to regain confidence in capitalism for the current and rising generations is to responsibly repeal Obamacare and craft piecemeal steps towards a truly free market in its stead.

The focus cannot be on fixing Obamacare, or even on replacing it. It must be on saving consumers from destructive ends… both from catastrophic premiums and the growing threat of absolute government dependence.

Advancing the American Conservative Movement

Advancing the American Conservative Movement

Ever since first putting out feelers for the American Conservative Movement last month, I’ve come to the conclusion the interest is clearly there. Patriots are tired of fighting two fronts: All of the Democrats on one side and the lukewarm moderate Republicans on the other side. Now is the time for a change.

I’ve been down a similar road before. Starting in 2017, I set out with a handful of people to form a new political party. There were ups and downs, but one of the biggest problems was tying too much of my personal financial future into the party. I invested many times more of my own money than all of the contributions combined. I’m not a rich man, so it was painful when the party was essentially ripped from underneath me, leaving no recourse or potential to recoup losses. This is why with the ACM, I’m not getting involved financially. I will neither spend significant chunks of my own money nor will I expect to receive compensation. This is a labor of love, a choice, one that I hope will rise to the challenge conservatives are facing with government at all levels today.

This is also why it’s important I simultaneously work through NOQ Report to generate the necessary buzz around the movement while simultaneously building up Proper Narrative, LLC. By keeping all of the components in their proper lanes, it will make success for each much easier to achieve.

Much like the Justice Democrats did when they propped up primary candidates like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the American Conservative Movement will strive to put true limited-government, Constitution-loving conservatives into office. If this sounds like the Tea Party, it is. The difference is we’re not going to branch out into dozens of satellite organizations trying to claim the mantle of the Tea Party while doing very little to actually advance conservatism in America. We will be focused, specific, and organized.

Those who are interested in learning more about the American Conservative Movement should fill out the form below. We are gathering names at this point; once we reach a tipping point of enough interested parties to make an impact, we’ll start sending out updates. Until then, we’re just going to try to connect with like-minded patriotic Americans who demand more from Washington DC, their local city council, and every level of government in-between.

The Democrats aren’t the only ones lurching to the left. By their nature, many in the GOP are sliding to the murky middle. Compromises are being made, but they don’t have to be. It’s time to set things to the right where they belong.

Federalism: How Colorado counties are fighting back against Red Flag Gun laws

Federalism How Colorado counties are fighting back against Red Flag Gun laws

As Colorado prepares to become another attacker against our right to keep and bear arms, several Colorado counties are fighting back. They are becoming what they describe as “2nd Amendment sanctuary counties” where gun owners can come knowing city and county law enforcement will not comply with the taking of a citizen’s firearms without due process.

Opinion

One of the most important tenets of limited government federalism is allowing the “lower” levels of government to choose for themselves how to enforce laws within the boundaries of the Constitution and within the parameters of the law of the land. As long as the actions of one area such as a city, county, or state do not adversely affect another area, giving them a tighter hold of the reins makes sense in today’s world just as it made sense to our founders.

A clear example of this is how different jurisdictions handle gun laws. There should be essentially no restrictions on our right to arm ourselves in a perfect world, but this isn’t a perfect world and leftists really want us to not own firearms. Therefore, they put forth restrictions that infringe on the 2nd Amendment and its our job to fight them. While the national gun debate seems to get all the attention, it’s the local jurisdictions in which we have the best opportunity to make a real impact defending our rights.

It’s obviously unfortunate for some of us who live in areas with perverse restrictions on firearm ownership, but at least there are options. One could even argue it makes for a stronger America when we have such diverse options about where to live and raise our families.

If someone wants to live in a sanctuary city with tons of safe spaces, obtuse gun laws, high taxes, and overbearing regulations, that’s their choice. If they want to live in a land that’s free and adheres properly to the Constitution, more of these places are becoming available as options. Those of us who believe that the right to keep and bear arms must never be infringed at any level of government will hopefully have that option in more places soon.

Of course, this doesn’t take away from the absolute need to keep fighting in those places dominated by progressives. Just because we have options doesn’t mean we should stop fighting for others who are having their rights infringed upon.

These Colorado counties may be the blueprint through which our rights can be best protected. Even as the state continues to lurch left, local governments are making a stand for the people. We should hope to see this becoming more common soon.

Quote

Helen Raleigh Gun Quote

Conservatives in these blue states have been looking for ways to push back against aggressive gun control legislation that they believe infringes upon their constitutional rights. Now Colorado and New Mexico have shown them what they can do. – Helen Raleigh

Final Thoughts

The battle to preserve our 2nd Amendment rights must be fought on multiple fronts. While our attention must remain at the national level, we can’t abandon the states, counties, and cities where we have much more influence.
