I have a dream that…No! Not a dream - a nightmare.
I have a nightmare that America is a monster - a tyranny - because She does not listen to the teachings of her Founding Fathers.
George Washington once said, “If the freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.” I have a
nightmare that we have to second-guess everything we say because the thought police are constantly monitoring us. Big Brother is even listening to our
whispers that Bill Clinton can’t even get a blow job.
James Madison once admonished in the Federalist #10, “The public good is disregarded in the conflicts of rival political parties.” I have a
nightmare that we have a two-party system. On the one side, we have the donkeys who call themselves Democrats. On the other side, we have the
elephants who call themselves Republicans. And scattered all over this Animal Farm are the rabbits, cows, goats, and sheep. And all these farm animals
just bicker and whine over petty squabbles and foolish pranks truly disregarding our own good.
Just this week, we’re arguing over birth control once again. Really?! Birth control?! Let’s not talk about all the innocent women and children
we’re blowing up all around the world. Let’s not talk about how our lifestyle of pollution is destroying our world, sinking the island nations of
Kiribati and Maldives, that will forever be lost to the seas like the city of Atlantis. No, and we definitely won’t talk about: disease, poverty,
animal suffering, human welfare, our injustice system, our failing education, our crippling infrastructure. No, none of that here in America. We have
far more important things to discuss. Contraceptives! But my god says it’s immoral. Yeah, and your god also says that you should love your neighbor,
but I don’t see you doing that.
And one day, when the next 9/11 happens, or the dollar collapses, or the world breaks out in war, we’re going to wake up from this voodoo, and
we’re going to ask ourselves, “What has happened to our health, our wealth, and our children’s commonwealth - or unhealth (that is, your child
is dead or crippled because of a senseless war)?”
I ask, “Is this the society that you really want to live in?”
And let’s not forget about Big Brother’s newest magic trick. It goes a little like this. “Now you see the Constitution, and now you
Today, our freedom has become just that - an illusion. Do not be fooled that the few dollars you can earn in return raises you above the status of
“Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? I know not what course others may take; but as for me,
give me liberty or give me death!” A famous and well-said quote by Patrick Henry. Impressive, right? No. It’s disgraceful. Appalling! I ask you,
“Why should any American be quoting our Founding Fathers in 21st-century America?”
And, worst of all, you could literally replace Great Britain with the United States of America in our Declaration of Independence, and we would be
well on our way to American Revolution II. But as George Bernard Shaw wisely puts it, “Revolutions have never lightened our burden of tyranny: they
have only shifted it to another shoulder.”
What I am proposing, then, is that we form a new political party that will respect the public good.
We do not need another political party of fancy rhetoric and empty promises. Just look at all that hogwash then-Senator Obama gave us about
“change.” Well, Mr. President, if by change you mean the change that I give to bums, then yes, I would say you have lived up to your campaign
promise. As Martin Luther King Jr. would say, We the People have come to cash the check of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and what does
President Obama give us? – mere change!
What we need today is a political party that will serve We the People, giving a voice to all of us, from the bottom-up, not top-down. Why should the
rich and the elite come first? They already have all that they need. We should be out there helping the poor and the homeless. As Langston Hughes, the
prominent Harlem Renaissance poet once quipped, they, “too,” are America.
We do not need another political party that wipes its ass with our Constitution. Just look at the perversions of our own Congress. The late
Congressman Henry Hyde called the Constitution “anachronistic,” and Senator Jeff Sessions went on record to say that he doesn’t even consider
the Constitution. These are the people you elect! But the saddest truth of all, they wouldn’t be wrong. Today, we have what you would call the
“living” Constitution. Well, I hate to break it to you, but a “living” Constitution is a dead Constitution.
What we need today is a political party that will stand up for the Bill of Rights. The Tenth Amendment prohibits the Constitution from ever becoming
“alive,” but they don’t teach us this in school. No, they keep us ignorant so that they can control us, like slaves!
We do not need another political party that only cares about today and their lust for power. As President Obama's former Secretary of the Treasury
Timothy Geithner said during the 2011 debt crisis, "Do not worry about raising the debt ceiling, as the Bible says, 'tomorrow will worry about
What we need today is a political party that will think about tomorrow and consider our actions seven generations down. Imagine, if we had done this
in the 1930s, even just one generation down, we wouldn’t find ourselves in the Social Security fiasco that we are in today.
We do not need another political party of mystery and secrets, allowing corruption and an underworld government to exist --accountable to no one.
What we need today is a political party of truth and honor, that will bring us an open and transparent government --accountable to We the People.
What we need today is a political party of the People, by the People, for the People.
What we need today is a political party that will ring the liberty bell for all the world to hear
I have formed such a political party, and I call it the New Libertarian Party.
And even though Gandhi would call us a minority of one, he would also say, the truth is the truth.
I have a dream that We the People will not stand alone.
I have a dream that You the People will walk with us.
Eleven score and seventeen years ago, WE had a dream that all humans are created equal.
I have that dream today.
But what we need today is a new political party! So form one!
