Competition.....

I put forth that the above word would SOLVE our problems....

In business, the best thing for consumers is COMPETITION - that is the biggest argument AGAINST Walmart in small towns. They drive out competition and when they are the only source, slowly raise their prices.

Wonder WHY the USA has the LOWEST School Rankings of ALL the Industrialized Countries? It isnt because the Government pays for the schools - Its because the money DOES NOT FOLLOW the child, like it does in every other Country. In other Countries, parents decide where a child goes to school - Government, Private, Catholic, Jewish, You Name It - and the GOVERNMENT money goes to that school. And just so you know why that wont happen here, its because of the control of the Teachers' Unions. How dare we expect a teacher to do her job well? {Thats sarcasm}


Perfectly, there are at least 3 competing business - 3.... A few years ago there was concern about the US only having 2 Wireless Carriers and the problems with competition that would create - meaning there wouldnt be compeitition and Customers would loose....


In Government, we have 3 Branches of Government - Our Founding Fathers understood competition.


But we are stuck with a 2 party system? Huh?

Elephants and Asses....WHAT? We couldnt do better than that, guys, picking mascots?

We need a third party - A STRONG THIRD PARTY. Where I vote, I didnt even have a choice to vote for a Libertairan, Independent, Constitutionalist....or even a canidate for the Communist Party. Just 2.....

There are options out there....But its going to be a fight to get one.....The reason I didnt have a choice besides the "Powers at Be" made up the rules - stuff like that a party has to have a certain percentage of the vote in order to get on a ballot....what? Ummmm.....wouldnt they have to be on the ballot to get to get the votes? See?

It cant and wont be done on a National Level. It will start where YOU live. It will start by electing someone local from an "Alternative" party. It will continue when you elect them to a higher office and fill their vacated office by someone else of the "AP". It will continue when you elect other people through the "AP" party....

Its not fast and its not over night. But its not as frustrating. Really.... This is where you live. You have more control. You can put up signs, talk to those you know, campaign, heck, YOU CAN RUN. It will keep you motivated - it will give you an oasis in this sea of Crap flowing from Washington.

There is a lot of that crap that can be stopped at a State Level. It would only take 1 state - JUST 1 - to start a wave of States who tell Washington, ENOUGH.

Take the example of Sarah Palin - She is not from an Alternative Party (AP), but she started small and has brought a change that inspired just about ALL in her state - 80% approval is hard to ignore.

Now - find a 3rd party YOU LIKE and AGREE WITH....dont just go to the Libertarians because they are the biggest and you think they have the best chance. Pick a Party you can passionatly get behind. I am partial to the Constitutionalists but I can see myself as a Libertarian too....It will take a little more research...

What can you do where you live to focus the local Government on Constitutional Conerns?

I think I'm a libertarian, but I don't know if I'm a "big L" or "little l". I've been told there's a difference.

I just know that even though in my state we couldn't vote for anybody who wasn't one of those two parties, I wrote in anyway. The SOBs. I'm SICK of being forced to choose the "lesser of two evils".
