Heh! I like how you pointed out that a political party, by necessity, has to start small...Likened to a new conspiracy group. It lends a whole new
of truth to the following quote:
Source: The Real History of the Rosicrucians--Arthur Edward Waite
"Beneath the broad tide of human history there flow the stealthy undercurrents of the secret societies, which frequently determine in the depths the
changes that take place on the surface."
When compared to the two major political parties in the US, they carry all of the organization & secrecy necessary to be
in their own right. There's the "party leaders" who work out strategies & pass on only the "need to know" to their lessers, who carry out the
tasks that put the leaders in braoder & firmer control
of the nation.
This calls for another quote:
Source: Proofs of a Conspiracy--John Robinson
"The pupils (of the Illuminati) are convinced that the order will rule the world. Every member therfore becomes a ruler."
Now let's look at the Republicans & the Democrats...
Both parties want to acheive absolute control over the US, but they're applying different idealologies
to carry out their dominance; the
liberals want everybody to either work directly to support the Government (by making everybody maintain myriad "social programs" through excessive
taxation) while the conservatives just want to over-regulate society & the law structure so that everybody will just "carry out orders" without
applying any critical thinking about those orders (basically, ruling over a nation of obediant robots).
This is the biggest source of friction between the two parties, from the top all of the way down to the lowest Citizen who supports their party. This
"friction" is commonly referred to as "bi-partisanship."
So, all things considered, the Republicans & Democrats are the two biggest "Conspiracy Groups" in the US! And the whole of the Citizen Body is
nearly at each other's throats over the differing "political loyalties!"
Needless to say, both parties see the Constitution as a threat to their paths to dominance, which is why both parties have been trampling on the
Constitution since before the ink dried on it. So far, it's been the Bush Administration that has done the most damage in the shortest period of
The reason that the Constitution is a threat to them is because it's a short (the entire body of text is contained on just a few pages), concise body
of laws & (more importantly limitations
on the Government's power. Just as God's Ten Commandments are short & concise while laying the
foundation on "civilized behavior," the Constitution sets the groundwork for ensuring Human Rights while keeping the Government itself limited to
enforcing those Rights & preventing anarchy.
While the political parties, as a matter of public record, have been stealing those Rights & promoting limited anarchy (if they pushed for total
anarchy, they'd lose control).
