Having read this, here is what can be stated:
The op has pointed out how many are stating that the liberals and the democrats are destroying this country, and that said political group are baby
killers and mentally retarded. That how the government is too big and a big government is the source of all of our problems. That the congress has a
low approval rating and how hated said body is. That the Congress is often gridlock and that it is miserable and only a few are able to stop the
majority. How that the country can no longer afford many of the things that make life nice, perhaps it is time to bring in a right wing military
style dictatorship, as everyone loves the military. And to that point that the President is already our commander in Chief and the authority that
comes down from high. That by having such, that the waste of money on voting and elections cost much and that it would be a smaller government with
just the military in charge.
Before I begin I would like to give a quote: …the American people know that one of those parties will be destroyed, and the Republic can't endure
very long as a one party system.
The idea of the country going to a military dictatorship is a scary one for there are many things that would be lost. Gone would be the constitution,
and all of the freedoms that are so enshrined, held up and debated on. And the president, well if he was not in danger before, he would be even more
so. Gone would be the potential for wealth from hard work, the dream would simply become a nightmare. Dissention would be equated as disloyalty and
the definition on what it takes to charge a person with treason, would be redefined at the whim of the leader at the time. No more private ownership,
no more going in new directions, not without the governments blessing. And as long as the leader were to keep the military happy, he remains in
power, but if he does not, or they feel he is no longer of any value or use, said leader is often removed, or they remove the top brass of the
military to prevent them from getting too much information.
But have the Democrats and the liberals been so bad for the country? No, not really. It was a liberal and novel idea, that decided that 13 colonies
were to break away and become a new country. And that same idea of a liberal nature, worked hard to pass many improvements to get the country back to
work and to clean up one of the biggest ecological disasters in modern history. And created the social security system. Then there is the public
education and many of the modern miracles in the sciences, medicine and ultimately put a man on the moon. That is what the liberals help to create,
shape and mold.
What has become far more apparent in years, is that the political divide has forced many in this country to make a choice, taking on a mentality of we
versus them. Many will hold up rights and freedoms, proclaiming don’t take them, but are often at odds, to support or even back the same rights for
the other, especially when it does not sit well with them.
Right now the Democrats are the bad guys, cause many see them as stalling and causing gridlock, yet fail to see that about 4 years earlier, it was the
Republicans who were doing the exact same thing. Both parties are just as bad as the other. And both have histories where they have supported and
even willfully violated the most basic of protections for the people.
Now that quote that I posted and opened up with earlier. That was from a man, who if he got his way would have set this country down on a dangerous
path, of being a dictatorship. And that was Senator Joseph McCarthy, a Republican from Wisconsin.
