Our System of Government works, but it needs a Leader….


I have heard throughout my life, at times, that we need a third party, because the two parties that exist are corrupt and need to be replaced, or that the system doesn’t work and needs to be reformed. I beg to differ on this point, because a third party will do just one thing. And that is to ensure that the democrats continue to stay in office. That the status quo continues the way they want it too. They know this and that is why when they start falling apart on they’re agenda’s, they start pushing for reforms. We do not need a third party. Just a leader who, with the parties that are in place, would do the right things and set this ship upright again. A true Leader. Something that is very rare in Washington these days. Here is my reasoning on this if you need it.

The system is working exactly the way that it should be, and the democrats do not like it one little bit. It’s the people that cause it to work. These last elections, the democrats got exactly what they were after, and they thought that with the super majority that they achieved, they could get whatever they wanted. After all, they were elected, so the people wanted what they wanted. But, it turned out that the people didn’t want what the liberals wanted, and even with a super majority, they couldn’t implement most of what they were after, even though for a while it looked like they were going to get it.

What happened was, the people found out what the libs were after, and the people went after their representatives to let them know under no uncertain terms, that if they passed these things into law that come election time, they would be voted out of office.

That was the beginning of Obama’s troubles with his cap n’ tax and his health care bill. Remember the starting of the tea party movement? Even with the constant pushing by Obama, Pelosi and Reid, they still couldn’t do it. So, people *democrats and disillusioned republicans* started pushing for reform of the system since it was broken. A third party. But that is not what we need. The system is NOT broken, even though we have politicians in Washington who are doing their level best to make us think it is.

Charles Krauthammer wrote a piece on this the other day that stated it perfectly:

“In the latter days of the Carter presidency, it became fashionable to say that the office had become unmanageable and was simply too big for one man. Some suggested a single, six-year presidential term. The president’s own White House counsel suggested [getting rid of] the separation of powers and going to a more parliamentary system of unitary executive control. America had become ungovernable.”

The American people don’t want any of this rubbish that is being forced down their throats, and it isn’t happening. It’s been slowed down. And there’s history to this kind of thing happening. This is not the first time we have heard that the system is ungovernable, that it’s unmanageable, that democracy doesn’t work. It happens every time that the democrats start falling apart because they are pushing agendas that the people do not want. It’s plain as that. Pat Buchannan for the World Net Daily said ‘that America faces a crisis of democracy’ and he predicted ‘a paralyzed government.’ But he is wrong on that. The system is fine.

Buchanan is not the only guy saying it. This is what starts going around when liberalism starts to crash and burn, When democrat party politics start to fall apart, it happens.

After the Carter years, and Reagan came along, all the chatter about how the system doesn’t work went away. Remember? *“The tyranny of entitlements? Reagan collaborated with Tip O’Neill, legendary Democrat House speaker, to establish the Alan Greenspan commission that kept Social Security solvent for a quarter-century. A corrupted system of taxation? Reagan worked with liberal Democrat Bill Bradley to craft a legislative miracle: tax reform that eliminated dozens of loopholes and slashed rates across the board — and fueled two decades of economic growth.” The system works. The two party system works. All it needs is a leader. Something that right now we are sorely lacking in having.

Obama is NOT a leader. He is an agitator and a Community Organizer. He knows that if he can’t get what he wants, the best way to get it is to put out the notion that the system is broken and needs fixing. Nothing more than that, and he is nothing more than a Community Organizer and an agitator. That is where his experience lies. NOT IN LEADING. All he knows how to do is to agitate the people, keep them on edge about everything so he can try to force through his agenda more easily. But that isn’t working, because the people are reading and finding out about what his agenda means for us. So the system is working. It is working fine. And out of this mess, hopefully we will find a person, a leader, who will set the ship upright again and do what is needed to get this country back on track. That is the only thing that will do it people. And I have laid out those steps before. Lower taxes, not raise them. Stop spending like idiots during a recession. YOU CANNOT SPEND YOUR WAY OUT OF A RECESSION, when there is no money to spend. Stop waste, stop lobbying, stop pork-barrel spending, stop entitlements. Make government smaller, not bigger.

The person who does this doesn’t have to even have the experience. Just a love for this country, and a love for God and a love for the founding documents, with a desire to follow them.

A grassroots type of person could do it. I could do it. As long as when I get there, I follow the concepts of the founding fathers, and follow the constitution, and listen to the people who I have surrounding me, helping me in the areas that I do not know. Making sure that the people I listen to, know the Constitution, and the founding documents of this great nation, and that they also listen to the people that put them in office. And on top of that, they all keep God in the loop on what they are doing. That is what will save this nation from the direction that the democrats are leading us now. We need a leader, and that is what we do not have now.

We get a leader in office, someone who like Reagan, took control of the situation, talked to God daily, and his leaders daily, and always listened to the people, lowered taxes, and things would right themselves, and this country would come out of the mess that we find ourselves in today. It wouldn’t happen overnight, but, if we had had a leader in the white house this last year, it would have happened by now. Instead, we have a struggling economy that is only going to get worse with the UN-leadership that we have now, and the rising taxes we have on the horizon when the Bush tax cuts expire and Obama’s new debts fall due. And they will come due. At the worst possible moment.

Mark my words here, people. Get a LEADER in there, and the system will straighten up. This happens in cycles, what we have going now. Sooner or later, a leader will step up, get elected like Reagan did, do the right things and this nation will start working again. Listen here. America is great. And she will come back. She is just waiting for her leader to arrive.

God Bless America, her troops, her allies and her people….
God Bless my readers, my listeners on BTR, and my viewers on You Tube….

    All the education in the world doesn’t qualify you to be a leader, or for that matter, president. As a matter of fact the last president to hold office that was not a college grad was a Democrat, Harry Truman. Obama and the Democrats got caught up in their own hype…”Change” and assumed it was a mandate for his policy, when in fact it was more about a change in Washington politics and Bush. It was not about changing the social structure and fabric of America. A true leader would have recognized this and done more to include the minority. A true leader would not have let the House leaders hijack legislation and exclude Republicans. The old saying is true, “Keep your friends close but your enemies closer” and nowhere is that more important than in politics.

    reply from Robert: Very true my friend. And yet, what we have in Washington is not a leader….because Obama is not one. As I said in my new video on You Tube today. It’s called Wise Conservatism’s Videoside chat #33 if you wish to go there and hear it.

    While I don’t think the system is broken I DO think a third party is actually needed in our political life. The current Dem/Repub dichotomy is corrupt to the point that it really doesn’t work for we, the people. Both parties have largely abandoned principle and are shackled to self-perpetuating “machines” that are committed ONLY to getting and keeping power. I believe the dichotomy is still around only because people are afraid that voting for a third party candidate will just split the vote and result in victory for the other side. And that fear has been stoked, I believe, by the two major parties who are really the only ones who benefit from it. The fear keeps them in power.

    It will take a lot of work for a third party to become viable. The two major parties will fight like rabid dogs to prevent any encroachment on their power, and the above mentioned fear will cause most of the voting public to turn a deaf ear and a blind eye to third party candidates. That’s why I believe any third party that’s serious about winning elections and implementing it’s agenda must start at the local level and work up. It must build a track record of fielding winning candidates and implementing successful policies. After proving itself at the local and state levels, the party can then take credible shots at national offices.

    I would not hesitate to support a third party that has proven itself and whose policies are agreeable with my beliefs. In fact, I think I’ve been waiting for such a party for a long time. When it finally comes along, it’s got my vote.
    <reply from Robert: When Reagan was getting ready to run for the office of President, everyone was saying the same thing then too. That we needed another party that the two were too corrupt. But Reagan said no, and changed the Republican party back to Conservatism, and started the New Conservative movement. The party has lately moved back away from that, but that is the way to do it again. Get a real leader who will bring the Conservatism back to the Republican party and bring her back the way that Reagan did. I still say a third party will be the end of the Republican party and give the Democrat party the boost that it does not need.
