America, the Stray Dog
The idea of a 'Third Party' or a 'Tea Party' should be seriously considered. I don't buy into the argument that it takes votes away from the Republican Party. The fact that Establishment Republicans such as Boehner and CFR associated Republican Mike Huckabee both have voiced concern about losing precious 'republican votes' is validation that the Republican Party is sick and does not represent Conservative Americans. George W. Bush and his alleged statement that the Constitution was 'just a god damned piece of paper' was an early symptom of a terminally ill Republican Party. The Endless Wars, Orwellian Patriot Act, and failure to seal the borders of America were multi system injuries to the already crippled Political System. Americans then felt like a beaten and abused dog and limped to their new Master and Savior Obama. Master Obama continued to abuse the abandoned dog of America and it became schizophrenic.
Victims of severe physical, sexual, or emotional abuse sometimes retreat inside themselves to cope with the trauma inflicted by a loved one or authority figure they thought they could trust. Split or Multiple Personalities are sometimes a result of extreme disassociation. The unspeakable trauma is then hidden deep within these explosive personalities and are coated with denial.
America is now a hungry, beaten, half crazy stray dog. We have two choices:
1. Continue the cycle of abuse. We can limp to the next Republican or Democratic Master in hopes of a designer collar, nutritionless dried dog food, and a shiny new water dish.
2. We can take a long and hard look at ourselves in a puddle while we suffer from mange and neglect from former masters. Self reflection often leads us to an introspective state of mind where through prayer or mediation we return to our center or 'core being'. We affirm our natural goodness. We affirm that we have been wronged and that our Masters have failed us and tricked us. We remember that this happened to us before and we protested, took up arms, and stood up to a Tyrannical Government and won! We affirm that our rights are bestowed upon us from God or our Creator and not from any fallible man or any kind of Government.
The signers of the Declaration of Independence deemed it a "self evident truth" that all men are endowed by their Creator with certain Unalienable Rights.
Unalienable Definition- Not to be separated, given away, or taken away; inalienable
"We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created Equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain Unalienable Rights that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
The broken down dog remembers the days of freedom and independence. The Spirit of Liberty is felt blowing like a wind through the trees.It is the life giving trickle of water in a woodland stream. It is reflected in the face of a gleeful child with rosy cheeks not yet jaded by life's perceived shortcomings. The Spirit of Liberty is alive and is in the heart of every human being throughout history and now living. All men have a desire to be free, a hunger to love and to be loved, and a natural bend towards independence.
I would argue that this 'Spirit of Liberty' I refer to is what inspired the Sons of Liberty to meet in alleyways and bars. This desire for freedom and independence sparked the ideas of protest and rebellion which served as the birthing pains of a patriotic labor which produced the Constitution and then our Republic, the United States of America.
We can remain in a deep slumber induced by Big Macs and Ambien with the soft blue glow of the Television in the background. In 2012, we can sheepishly bow our heads to the next Council on Foreign Relations groomed Republican Candidate and have a GEORGE W. BUSH REPEAT...
Or we can awaken and reconnect with our Founding Fathers by educating ourselves on World and Early American History, reviewing the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, and praying to God that our homeland return to the basic ideals that made America the greatest Philosophical Experiment of all times....
