Tired of Politics As Usual?

FrogPrince Stop Politics As Usual!
  • If government is “of, by and for the people”, why do so many people complain about government?
  • If government is accountable to “We, the People”, why are so many dissatisfied with the results?
  • How can it be both - accountable and in need of reform?

Wasn’t America supposed to be about limited government? Government makes laws. Laws create privileges for some and steal inalienable rights from others in the process. Laws steal choices. They prohibit and limit choices for some people and make you obey someone else’s choices. It’s like being told where to sit on the bus. Laws make you do things you would not want to do if you were free. Was it meant to be this way? What can be more valuable than choice? What do you have when you have no choice?

We find ourselves warring against each other - - red states and blue; 'them against us'; ‘Left’ vs. ‘Right’; Republicans vs. Democrats. These forces are just about equal. Each seeks to take, keep and expand the power to impose laws on the other. Campaign finance laws not withstanding, both sides spent as if in combat.  Win at all cost! Tons of money, advertising campaigns, phone banks, promises, defections, “Get out the vote” battalions, voter registration shenanigans, vote fraud, hoards of pollsters, and armies of lawyers have become our new political reality. All for the power to make laws others must obey.

Prohibitions, limitations and mandates now rule us all. Red voters hope to impose their values on the blue and visa versa. No matter the outcome, half of the electorate will have gained more power to impose its values at the expense of the other half. Isn’t that expense becoming unbearable and unsustainable for all?

  • Why are taxes high? Because there is no choice. You're forced to pay.
  • Why are schools bad? Because laws limit choices.
  • Why is government 'dysfunctional'? It isn't. It works as legislated. That's Politics As Usual.

Should values be forced on us and choices restricted by any party? Can’t we try to liberate instead of regulate each other? Wasn’t America supposed to be about voluntary agreement instead of forced obedience?
