Third Party Politics: Republicrats and Democans

Posted by Mark on October 5, 2009

Republicrats and Democans. They are all alike.  There’s no difference between the Parties. Both are leading us toward Progressivism, one quickly and one slowly. Glenn Beck says so. That’s why we need a new Party, right? 

Wrong, wrong, wrong!  

Take a look at the two Party websites, GOPUSA and . Do you see any difference? If you don’t, I’ve got a spare pair of really thick glasses for you to try again. The Democrats have stuck to their liberal agenda with passion and tenacity, while Republicans have admittedly wandered from the Conservative values that won them election after election. 

But to claim no difference is, to use Mr. Beck’s current favorite word, idiotic.

As we approach the mid-term elections and the 2012 Presidential election, let’s “honor” a couple of famous third-party candidates,  Ross Perot and Ralph Nader.

In 1992, Mr. Perot’s candidacy gave the election to Bill Clinton, Monica Lewinsky, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. In 2000, Ralph Nader served as the spoiler in one of the closest elections in our nation’s history. Had Mr. Nader not run, Al Gore would have been reading to that class of children on 9/11. 

So, if you really like Barack Obama, start rooting for a Conservative alternative to the Republican candidate. A third party candidate with charisma and character will guarantee an Obama second term. Count on it.

The Number One Threat to Middle East Peace?

Posted by Mark on October 5, 2009

When Alice went down the rabbit hole, the world turned on its ear. There are still Rabbit Holes today, and one of the biggest is at the United Nations…

TEHRAN, Oct. 4 (Xinhua) — Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Mohamed ElBaradei said Sunday that “Israel is number one threat to Middle East” with its nuclear arms, the official IRNA news agency reported.

    At a joint press conference with Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization chief Ali Akbar Salehi in Tehran, ElBaradei brought Israel under spotlight and said that the Tel Aviv regime has refused to allow inspections into its nuclear installations for 30years, the report said.

    “Israel is the number one threat to the Middle East given the nuclear arms it possesses,” ElBaradei was quoted as saying.

    Israel is widely assumed to have nuclear capabilities, although it refuses to confirm or deny the allegation.

    “This (possession of nuclear arms) was the cause for some proper measures to gain access to its (Israel’s) power plants … and the U.S. president has done some positive measures for the inspections to happen,” said ElBaradei.

It’s hard to know what is more frightening, ElBaradei’s idiotic statement, or his assertion that the current U.S. President is supporting his claim…
