George W. Obama & Harry S. Eisenhower

By, Chris Rossini

By now, most of us have seen an image just like this one...

...and we all know what the image means.

"Mr. Hope & Change" is basically the same type of President as "The Decider" was. Very little difference between the two....cosmetic differences at best.

The two-party swindle is nothing new in American history. In other words, the U.S. has had a one-party state for a very long time now.

For example, let's go all the way back to the 1950's. The unpopular, New Deal/Fair Deal Harry S. Truman was out, and Dwight D. Eisenhower waltzed in to clean up the mess.

Even the great Henry Hazlitt succumbed to the sea change that was supposedly taking place. Hazlitt wrote on February 16, 1953:
President Eisenhower’s State of the Union message to Congress marked a turning point in American history as dramatic and unmistakable as the early messages and fireside talks of Franklin D.Roosevelt twenty years ago. Roosevelt proclaimed the birth of the New Deal; Eisenhower delivered its funeral oration. The Roosevelt-Truman philosophy led us deeper and deeper into a managed economy; Eisenhower reasserted the philosophy of a free economy. (emphasis added)
However, by the end of that very same year, the truth would reveal itself. Here's Hazlitt on Dec. 14, 1953:
“The Eisenhower Administration, which so bravely abolished price controls and made such a promising effort to halt inflation when it first came into office, has reversed its direction. It seems to have embraced almost the whole economic philosophy of the New Deal, and above all its policy of continuous inflation.” (emphasis added)
Two years later, on Jan. 24, 1955, Hazlitt threw up his arms, and asked a question that still rings true today:
“The New Deal policies now adopted by Mr. Eisenhower are so numerous, in fact, that it is easier to point to exceptions...
What longer reason or need is there for a Republican Party? Do we need two major parties, both demanding the same huge bureaucratic paternalism?” (emphasis added)
That was 59 years ago. Like I said, the U.S. has had a one-party state for a very long time. The rules of the game were eloquently stated by Bill Clinton's mentor Carroll Quigley, in his book Tragedy & Hope:
“[T]he two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can ‘throw the rascals out’ at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy...But either party in office becomes in time corrupt, tired, unenterprising, and vigorless. Then it should be possible to replace it, every four years if necessary, by the other party, which will have none of these things but will still pursue, with new vigor, approximately the same basic policies.”
Think about that the next time you see Republicans & Democrats on TV, duking it out like WWE wrestlers. Think about it the next time you witness a heated political argument at a family party. It's all a waste of breath.

Knock yourselves out, the government doesn't care. Their main desire is to keep you away from the only real battle that counts:

The One-Party State vs. Liberty

  1. Oustanding!!! How true. That's why I quit voting after the charade of the repubelican primaries and the treatment of Ron Paul.

  2. Lincoln and Douglass were lawyers for the same railroad.

  3. Try and explain your insightful concept of a one party system to many Democrats, Republicans or Tea Party members, and you will leave shaking your head at the intransigence of many propagandized Americans. I have tried and failed to explain to many people the idea that the body of American politics is much like the human body. In the modern American political system you have a left and right brain operating together to move the right leg, and left leg together in a highly coordinated fashion. Together the political parties can take the body of American politics in any direction they wish including the ability to take a step backward. But for the last 67 years it seems we are collectively rushing forward at breakneck speed into an authoritarian abyss.

  4. Thank you, Chris. Outstanding.

  5. Great article. As another commenter noted, trying to tell people that the two parties are virtually identical is a hopeless task. It should be self-evident, but obviously people love the illusion.

  6. The two parties implement rules in every state making it hard for a challenger candidate-party to gain traction. The Federal Election Commission is populated by their people. So called Debates during a Presidential Primary season are a scripted joke. The media aids-abets, remember how when Ron Paul did well in a couple of Pres. primaries, the media would never mention it, or else mention him as extreme, and in an unfavorable light.
