Can We Stop the Insanity?

How many elections have come and gone? How many Presidential candidates have claimed that they will make America great again, yet have failed? How many campaign promises have been made and broken? How many regimes have relied on the same statist principles to run our country, and have made a mess? Are you tired of reading so many questions? Are you tired of answering them? Are you sick and tired of politics yet?

"Insanity [is] doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. " Albert Einstein, (attributed) US (German-born) physicist (1879 - 1955)

Are our leaders guilty of insanity? Or are we, the People, guilty of insanity for choosing the same type of politicians over and over again and expecting different results?

Shouldn't we end the insanity?

How about now? How about right now?

There are two ways to stop the insanity that has become American politics. Either we break the cycle of electing stupid people as leaders by choosing a different politician with different ideas, based on a different mindset that long ago worked for America to make this country great. Or, we should break the cycle of electing stupid people by not voting at all. Stay home and don't cast a vote--any vote. No one. Period.

The second option is not so good. If not one single American voted, somehow, someone would get elected by default, and most likely it would be the same type of stupid politician with the same stupid ideas who upholds the current stupid power structure by perpetuating this stupidity for another four years.

So why don't we try something different for a change? Why don't we elect a different kind of politician--one who understands real economics and wants to go back to doing the time-tested and proven things that once made America the greatest nation in the history of the human race? Shouldn't we at least try to do something different? Shouldn't we all at least try to stop this insanity?

Forget the Republican Party. It is fascist. Fascism is un-American. Forget the Democratic Party. It is socialist. Socialism is un-American. Why don't we give peace and liberty a chance? These are truly American characteristics. Why don't we give capitalism and the free market a chance (and no, we have never been a purely capitalist country. Partial capitalism has made America great. Let's try the full, laissez-faire version to make it better.) Capitalism is an American characteristic. Let's restore the Constitution, which is the only document that keeps us safe from the tyrrany of government. Bring America the great back again, shall we?

Won't you even try something totally different?

Here is how: Vote for Ron Paul for President. The Republicans have failed America. The Democrats have failed America. Let's put a Libertarian in the Oval Office. How much worse off could we be, since we're already scraping the bottom of the barrel?

Vote for Ron Paul for President of the United States of America!

You brought a quote to mind... If you always do what you always did, you'll always get what you always got. Don't know who said it, but it's so, so true.

I Googled the phrase, found it quoted by "unknown" many times, but I also found it attributed to a motivational speaker named Ed Foreman. I guess we get what we ask for in the political world, and I think in a way we are conditioned that way.
