Another Reason Not to Trust the GOP

I recently posted about my frustrations with the Republican Party, how they continue to thumb their noses at conservatives, how they seem focused so intensely on being “middle of the road” and forcing their candidates down our throats. I wrote about this being the reason for abandoning the GOP in favor of the Constitution Party.

Many people buck and bristle about those things. They are enslaved to the idea of a 2 party system, forgetting that the GOP itself started out as a third party. They seem to be blinded by the idea that the GOP is the only alternative to the radical liberalism/socialism of our current administration. Some even say that while it’s not perfect, the GOP is still a “good” group of folks.

Then how do you explain this: Rick Santorum actually won the Iowa Caucus, but the GOP “machine” made sure Mitt Romney came out on top. I know it sounds like a conspiracy theory, but read the article. Read things like “the final caucus count would remain unresolved because the results from eight precincts were mislaid and will never be certified.” Mislaid? What does that mean? How does that happen?

Or how about this: “Officials discovered inaccuracies in 131 precincts, with changes in one precinct alone shifting the vote by 50.” 131 precincts with “inaccuracies??” This is ridiculous. It’s obvious the machine is already at work to force the liberal Romney down our throats, so why should conservatives continue to turn a blind eye and say “Well, it’s still better than Obama.” Is it? Is it really? Watch this:

Folks, face it. Both of the major parties are bankrupt morally and have conspired together to bankrupt our nation literally. Neither can be trusted. Both serve up candidates who are nothing but wolves in sheep’s clothing. The time for a change has never been clearer.

We need to stop giving into the 2-party-only mentality, remember our history, remember that a third party can make a difference, and start voting conscience and principles. As John Quincy Adams so wisely said: “Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost.”
