A Political Party Until Dead Do Us Part? Think Twice.

With this post, I intend to debate the reasoning of belonging to a political party until dead do us part. In other words, I’m democrat, Republican or Independent no matter what roach decided for whatever reason that he or she could be the president of a nation.

political party is an organized group of people who have the same ideology, or who otherwise have the same political positions, and who field candidates for elections, in an attempt to get them elected and thereby implement the party’s agenda. In this posting I will attempt to show how the most powerful parties have departed from the Original ideology. This article is only intended to show how people who are married to a political party, have departed from the original base of it.

While there is some international commonality in the way political parties are recognized and in how they operate, there are often many differences, and some are significant. Most of political parties have an ideological core, but some do not, and many represent ideologies very different from their ideology at the time the party was founded. As individuals, we usually identify with the ideology of a party and almost everyone have a common believe that their party has the best option for the nation we all love.

The problem when we believe that the party is the solution, is that we blindly also accept whoever is the candidate as the person that is going to defend the ideology of the party, my party, the one I believe is the best option. Big mistake!

Can you tell your child with pride

“I pray you become like him/her one day.”

Think Twice!

Trump or Biden? Think Twice. Look at the heart and intentions.
Trump or Biden?
No perfection on mother earth. No one, Not even “me.”
Select the best.

Electing a Candidate

When a pool of candidates presents their names to represent a specific political party, people immediately assume or discriminate against the candidate representing the opposition. This is a very risky way to elect a person specially if the position is not for president of a nation. Why? for the same reason we love our nation and defend the constitution. As smart individuals that we are, WE KNOW that while there are multiple reasons that can lead a person to go through hell campaigning, fighting, betraying, arguing, trashing others character, there is also a slim possibility some may do it for a genuine love to preserve the root of the party, the nation and institutions. For most, it’s all about a position of power to feed their egos, greed and opportunism.

The Republican Party, also known as GOP (Grand Old Party)was founded in 1854. It allowed for the potential expansion of slavery into certain U.S. territories.  Abraham Lincoln was the first Republican president. What was its base?

Slavery: People, mainly African Americans, were treated as the chattel (personal property) of the owner. They were bought and sold as commodities, forced to labor and marriage.

US Slave Free 1789-1861

embeded: US Slave Free 1789-1861

Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voting Act 1965: It prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or national origin when hiring, promoting or firing.  It also enforces the constitutional right to vote, to confer jurisdiction upon the district courts of the United States to provide relief against discrimination in public accommodations, to authorize the attorney General to institute suits to protect constitutional rights in public facilities and public education, to extend the Commission on Civil Rights, to prevent discrimination in federally assisted programs, to establish a Commission on Equal Employment Opportunity, and for other purposes.

Gun Violence in the USA

The modern GOP supports lower taxes, free market capitalism, restrictions on immigration, increased military spending, gun rights, restrictions on abortion, deregulation and restrictions on labor unions.

The Democratic Party: The Party of The People. It traces its heritage back to Thomas Jefferson and James Madison. It was founded around 1828 by supporters of Andrew Jackson, making it the world’s oldest active political party.[18] In its early years, the Party supported limited government, where the government’s power is restricted by law which is written in its constitution. The limited government of the United States is split into a system of checks and balances so that the branches within the government have shared responsibilities and one division does not become more important than the other.

Democrats tend to take a more liberal stand on important issues. They believe that the federal government should take a more active role in people’s lives, particularly those who are in need.

One example is Franklin D. Roosevelt’s presidency (1933–1945). To pull the U.S. out of an economic depression, Roosevelt started a slew of government programs to create jobs.

The modern Democratic party emphasizes egalitarianism, social equality, protecting the environment, and strengthening the social safety net through liberalism. They support voting rights and minority rights, including LGBT rights, multiculturalism, and religious secularism.

RATE YOUR PARTY: How would you rate your party? Does it work hard to end discrimination? harassment? Does it care for the low income class? Does it defend EEO? Right to vote? Does it believe that the AG must protect the constitution? Does the party represent the founders’ ideology in an unquestionable way? Does it protect the nation from international threats? Does if fight humanitarian challenges? Does it condemn abortion but silently destroy people mentally, physically and even death by not establishing an affordable healthcare system for all? How about mass murders? Does it care more for the lobbyists and their money than the cry of the people? How about $24 trillion Debt? How do you rate it? It’s time for courage and determination.

It’s time stop belonging to a political party until dead do us part. Divorce!

The Liberal Ideology: The definition of liberalism has changed over time, but modern-day liberals tend to believe that government should intervene in the economy and provide a broad range of social services to ensure well-being and equality across society. Liberals usually believe that the government should not regulate, religion, private sexual or social behaviors.

The Progressive Ideology: ‘Progressive’ is used interchangeably with ‘liberal’ by many today; others argue that the two terms are distinct. Those who consider the terms separate may say that liberals believe in protecting previously disadvantaged groups from discrimination, while progressives believe it’s the government’s job to address past wrongs and reform the systemic issues that caused those disadvantages in the first place.

In Summary.

Candidates and political parties always present to the people their “made up good intentions” to deceive people and win followers. That’s not enough to elect a candidate to any position of leadership in government. History has taught / showed us time after time that self interest, power and ego are the main reason many run for a federal/governmental position.

When electing a candidate, we must scrutinize the heart, the mind and the real intentions behind the candidate. We must select the best from both parties to make sure we always have a government with check and balances to protect our institutions. We must defend the party from self-serving individuals and “remove all the damaged kernels” from all parties. We can’t take chances. Our democracy is in peril and the world is hungry for unlimited power, we must clean house.

A total of 470 seats in the U.S. Congress (35 Senate seats and all 435 House seats) are up for election on November 3, 2020, including two special elections for U.S. Senate. Your Vote is the most important duty as a citizen of the USA. Vote! (See link of candidates below.)

  1. I wish I could vote for a candidate who would be a centrist and not align him or herself with party do or die and instead do what is best for the nation. Sadly, in today’s world few exist. If they do, our present president maligns them as he did to Mitt Romney.

    1. You are so right. It’s actually a very complex and sad situation. My thing is that there are so many people who wouldn’t like their children to become wealthy with no education, moral or ethical values; however, many still would die for a candidate just because they belong to a particular party. So wrong.
