The Myth of Political Freedom in America

A common joke explains the truth about our political system - The Republicans and Democrats are two sides of the same coin and both sides spend the same. This explains some but not all of it. When Ford first mass produced cars, he proudly stated you could get his car in any color, so long as the color is black.

Liberty minded people should re-focus their efforts on getting people to withdraw their support for any party.  Parties are collectives and are controlled by the "leaders" of that party.  Being a member of a political party is tantabmount to giving up your vote as you'll only be able to vote for the individuals that have been presented to you by the party.

Members of political parties are subverting the political process and should consider themselves traitors to basic premise of our Republic.

Parties should be brought up on RICO charges.

Become an independant.  Declare your independence from the political machine.  They have no power without the lemmings/sheeple that follow them.  And, those sheeple violate the rest of our voting rights by not allowing us to have a real choice in who we vote for!
