IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT WE DECIDE TO ELECT AN INDEPENDENT PRESIDENT IN 2016.
I voted Republican for my district of the U.S. House of Representatives this time. And I’m glad the Republicans have a majority in the Senate and House of Representatives now. President Obama has turned out to be even more of a monster than George W. Bush was. Every midterm election, we have to do damage control. In 2006, we had to vote Democrats into both houses of Congress because the Republican Party was dangerously out of control. Now we’ve just had to vote Republicans into both houses of Congress because the Democratic Party was dangerously out of control.
How many more midterm elections are going to be this way–how many more times are we going to have to vote members of the opposing party to the President into both houses of Congress because his party is dangerously out of control? This is damage control–how many more times are we going to have to do this?
If the President were independent (not affiliated with any political party), we wouldn’t have to do this at all.
We had an opportunity to elect an independent president in 1992. His name was Ross Perot, and I voted for him (my first presidential vote)–not because I disliked Bush or Clinton, but because I felt that the President should not be affiliated with any political party.
If you voted for George H.W. Bush in 1992, you made a big mistake.
If you voted for Bill Clinton in 1992, you made a big mistake.
Don’t make the same mistake in 2016.
As aforementioned, both the Republican and Democratic Parties have taken our government away from us.
And the only way we can begin to take it back is to elect an independent president in 2016.
Honestly, if I had the money for a campaign, I’d be ethically obligated to run for president myself, as an independent. But I don’t.
Ross Perot did. Let’s hope to God another independent candidate does.
I’m not talking about a third party–I’m talking about no party affiliation at all.
There is room for different political parties in Congress, but not in the Presidency. Because the President is just one person. That makes all the difference in the world. The President of the United States is only one person–yet he has as much power as both houses of the United States Congress. This is why it is imperative that the President not be affiliated with any political party. Even an independent president may be somewhat biased toward one party or another–but not nearly as much as a Republican or Democratic president.
George Washington was the only independent president the United States has ever had–and this is just one reason he was the best president the United States has ever had.
There were no political parties when George Washington was elected as our first president. And toward the end of his second term, he was dismayed to see the government he had helped to establish already unraveling into political parties.
Our government was never meant to be fractured into political parties–this is something our country’s founders never anticipated. And I am certain that they would be appalled, not only that the United States Government has fractured into political parties, but that these parties are now so polarized–not to mention extremist, corrupt, and dangerously powerful.
Both the Republican and Democratic Parties have taken our government away from us. And the only way we can begin to take it back is to elect an independent president in 2016.
