The issue is not Trump, rather political Competition today is between a Candidate who represents the Political Past and one who is promoting a Future Ideology that is demanding its Day. Former President Trump is not a looser; rather its the political system that centers a competition between democracy or an authoritarian system of government that is going to determine a looser. The day has arrived that when one votes for a particular Presidential Candidate it occurs that the voters are doing much more than selecting policy which the norm for an election; rather they are selecting a given political system: Capitalism and freedom vs. Socialism and collectivism.
How can a Capitalist compete with a Socialist; its nearly impossible: one negates the other as incompatible. The first believes in a free market system controlled by the consumer; the later, believes in big government and a managed market that supports communalism. It comes down to the question does the American people want to eliminate the phrase in in our National anthem, the Star Spangled Banner, that says we are The Land of the Free and The home of the brave. It is a competition between Aristotle, who believed that man was capable of ruling over himself; against Plato, who believed in a classed society with the elites ruling thru a dictatorship. It is the competition in which the people either believe in a God who cares for them or a people without hope or it is a government who has killed hope by eating prosperity producing a people who are dependents. Ask the people do you want to be free, then you want democracy; ask them do you want security, then you want communism. They are at opposite ends of continuum where a comparison is based on differences not any sort of likeness.
The Scottish Professor of Civil History at the University of Edenburgh, Alexander Tytler (1747-1813) stated while the thirteen colonies were still a part of England:
A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves money from the public treasure. From that moment on the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most money from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world’s great civilizations has been two hundred years. These nations have progressed through the following sequence:
From bondage to spiritual faith,
From spiritual faith to great courage,
From courage to liberty,
From liberty to abundance,
From abundance to selfishness,
From selfishness to complacency,
From complacency to apathy,
From apathy to dependency,
From dependency back to bondage.
Question: What is the perpetual fighting about coming from the Congressional floor and between Congress and the Presidency when they are of different Parties that we all find repugnant if you haven’t figured out what they’re really doing. I suggest, that it’s much more than Party rivalry; its the final stages of a transition between two different and incompatible systems I have described here where Campaign management has become dramatic such as the demonstration of Black Lives Matter and Atifa that occurred before the 2020 Presidential Election; even the Pandemic served a purpose with a lockdown securing 46% of the votes mailed in the 2020 election. Its only fair to say that the voter needs to keep this in mind when they go to the voting booth that they are voting for something much more than choosing policy, they are choosing to either retain democratic order or to change our political system to a purely Socialist system; moreover, with graft all of a sudden an important part of our electoral system; moreover, attacks against the Presidency when the Democrats are controlling the House and the President is a Republican. They can say what they will about the January 6th supposed insurrection while they deny the one that is going on inside the hollowed doors of Congress. Over regulation was the error or the plan that made the two major parties to exist in a vacuum, frozen in place, where the dragon saw an opportunistic doorway. Now the voter is being forced to choose between two distinctly different political systems using Party identity as bait; and they don’t know it. Incrementally, they can bring complete change. This is apparently why our Founding Fathers did not include or institutionalized Parties as an integral part of the Federal system of government except to simply identify the Party that carried the Presidency and either of the two Congressional branches.
Thus, one Party is representing Capitalism and freedom with a small amount of Socialism , that’s the Republican Party, at least for now; they do complain about RINOs asking the public to help them get rid of them; why they can’t do that themselves to maintain the integrity of their Party is unexplained. Exemplified in this question is Governor Ron DeSantis, for instance, if one pays attention to a politician does more than what they speak. Governor Desantis of Florida since 2019, where a term is four year renewable only once, who is competing for the Republican Presidential candidacy in the 2024 Election against former President Donald Trump, who is head of the Republican Party, who also has declared his candidacy; this speaks to the prediction that the Republicans Party will eventually fall to a similar paradigm as that of the Democratic Party, if the country is going to fall. This competition is odd at best, let alone making DeSantis appear as a possible RINO and how Trump will be blocked from reacquiring the Presidency; something he has been toward since the last election. Additionally, how quickly DeSantis reinstated Florida’s abortion policy after the Federal level had loosed it; the negligence in dismantling of Florida’s Majority-Minority Set-aside Districts ordered by the Supreme Court as unconstitutional in 1993 continues through the DeSantis administration; moreover, allows an illegitimate clause in the Florida Constitution protecting cultural cohesion of areas with strong ethnic presence to be unbroken; which is a majority-minority set-aside district by another name; also Florida has Congressional Districts where more than 700,000 people reside, even after the last census in 2020, instead of the Constitutional 30,000 requirement; and finally, though DeSantis did win his incumbency election, it was accomplished with only 30% of the Florida eligible voters; thats because of the pattern of the 50% national average of those who do not vote, that is also reflected in Florida.. The other major Party, the Democratic Party, has completely gone over the clift into full blown socialism either in the form of communism or fascism wherein one of these days the choice will be communism because fascism cannot hold its middle ground as authoritarian capitalism.
Absent the Sedition Law, that forbids the promotion of a different political system outside a Constitutional Amendment approved by the people, the protection Americans had has been buried and silenced and the door swung wide to authoritarianism; the law makers are breaking the law and they say to us one day “we are a Parliamentary system and haven’ t been a Federalist system for some time”—“some time” is defined as beginning with the Roosevelt Era to the present. This leads one into the current conflict, to keep its Democratic status, the vote has to be honest and genuine; but what is coming forth is voter fraud moreover, carried out by bureaucrats, elected and Party officials. Did you notice the two Independent Candidates that made it into the Senate? If that becomes a movement across the country, we may have a chance to salvage the US Federalist democracy; however, here comes the controlling counter one: state has stepped out to experiment with primaries, historically only for Party candidates, now for Independents as well with only the top five allowed to go on the ballot which would define a change to a Parliamentary system with Independents eventually becoming a Party themselves. Moreover, in Florida the ability to do a write-in is now a preselected.
Wake Up! A little sleep, . . . a little slumber . . . and not only will you find that your living in poverty because the government has transferred prosperity to itself absorbed by Socialism and big government and the ego trip of perpetual War; you will also find that the reigns have been taken from you as the sovereignty of the people over our country.
NOTE:1. Politico 11/15/2022. “Ahead of his reelection campaign, Desantis began an aggressive fundraising effort that eventually saw him criss-cross the nation and put together a national network of backers. He eventually raised roughly $200 million—a staggering amount that allowed him to swamp his Democratic challenger, Charlie Crest, on television advertising.”
FEC law allows excessive donations for a current campaign to roll over to the next electoral cycle; assuming that is the Candidates intent, otherwise the excess has to be refunded; Desantis is now in his last term as Governor of Florida.
