No, Both Parties Are NOT the Same!


Welcome to "Both Parties Are NOT the Same!"



As the endless Republican debates went on and on in the run-up to the 2012 Presidential elections, I was increasingly disturbed with what I heard from the Republican candidates and with what I saw in the Republican crowds watching these debates.


I was also frustrated by many people, many from the progressive uber-left, many supporting someone like Ron Paul or a third party candidate, some from the Occupy movements, that were adamant that "Both parties are the same".  Look, I know that the Democrats and Obama are not perfect (Did anyone expect them to be perfect?), but I know in my heart that they are NOT THE SAME as these, racist, homophobic, anti-woman, and anti-human people who populated the Republican party in the year 2012--- and continue to do so in 2015.

What about a Third Party?

I firmly believe that a vote for a third party candidate is a vote for the Republicans.  I furthermore believe that staying home because someone believes that "There is no difference between the Democrats and the Republicans; they are both tools of Wall Street" is the same as voting for one of the race-baiting, despicable Republicans.  That's why I started this blog back in 2011. 

I include two major types of articles in this blog:
  1. Information, articles, comments that highlight the difference between the current crop of Republicans and the Democrats.
  2. Information, articles, comments that answer some of the complaints from the uber-left, disgruntled Progressives, libertarian supporters, and various Third Party supporters that "both parties are the same; both parties are supported by corporations", etc. 
Though I am a fierce advocate of getting money out of politics, overturning Citizen's United, and putting strong caps on lobbying, particularly on behalf of corporations, I do not feel that both parties are the same, that Obama is just a tool of Goldman-Sachs, and I'm tired of reading such rhetoric as the "Bush/Obama perma war machine."

I will say that the "libertarian movement" started by Ron Paul and continued to a certain extent by his son Rand is fair game on this blog.  I contend that the poor quality of education in this country has led the way to many young people completely missing father Ron Paul's racist and sexist character and somehow seeing him as a hero. 

Unlike my Molly's Middle America blog, which highlights jobs, employment numbers and trends, and other political commentary, this blog will not feature as much original writing and research.  I expect that it will mostly include links to other information, paragraphs, "blurbs" and comments from Facebook and other places that are relevant to the topic of the blog. 

I welcome all comments and any emails, particularly those with articles or sources.  I will not delete comments with opposing viewpoints unless they involve name-calling, abuse, lies, or repeated inane statements.  Those will go.
