The Party of Great Moral Frauds

• http://lewrockwell.com, by Thomas J. DiLorenzo
The party began as the party of mercantilism, corporate welfare, protectionist tariffs, constitutional subterfuge, central banking, and imperialism. Its 1860 presidential platform promised not to disturb Southern slavery; its first president supported the Fugitive Slave Act and the proposed "Corwin Amendment" to the Constitution that would have prohibited the federal government from ever interfering with Southern slavery; the party committed treason by "levying war upon the states" (the precise definition of treason in the Constitution) and murdering hundreds of thousands of fellow citizens in order to destroy the voluntary union of the states that was established by the founding fathers. It refused to do what Britain, Spain, France, the Dutch, Denmark, Sweden, and the Northern states in the U.S. had done about slavery and end it peacefully. Instead, it used the slaves as pawns in a war that was about consolidating all political power in Washington, D.C. in general, and in the hands of the Republican Party in particular.

Let's get real for a change. The Democratic & Republican  parties are nothing more then  2 different wings flappin the same bird. It is all a continuous  illusion for the sheeple to believe they have only 2 choices or no choices at all. Jessie Ventura hit the nail on the head when he said that politics and politicians are like professional wrestling. Out on the ring and the public eye they are all going to rip each other apart, but behind the scenes they are all buddy buddy together laughing all the way to the bank.

I say that as long as we have politicians, there will always be suffering, misery, wars and death. It doesn't matter who "THEY" picked to be the next Killer & Chief of the United States Inc. The agenda remains the same, but take note, real change is about to come and it won't be coming from the District of Criminals. Much is soon to be exposed to the masses on the truth with positive results.
