Our Nation’s Dance of Death with Third Parties
By Frances Rice
In our quest to get Conservative candidates elected, we need to recognize a political reality. Like it or not, America is a two-party system. We will have either Democrats or Republicans in control of our government. No political party is perfect. Only God is perfect. With Republicans in control of our government, we can get 70-80% of what we want, and we can have some control over what the Republicans do. With Democrats in control of our government, we can get little or nothing of what we want, and we can have little or no control over what the Democrats do.
The reason is the difference in the underlying values of the two political parties. Even though some individual politicians may stray from their party’s core principles, the fundamental principals of the party remain the same. From its inception in 1854 as the anti-slavery party, the Republican Party has always been the party of freedom and equality, and the party that fights to uphold the traditional values that have made this country great. As author Michael Scheuer stated, the Democratic Party is the party of the four S’s: slavery, secession, segregation and now socialism.
At the heart of socialism is the core belief that our rights come from the government, and the men in control of the government can take away our rights. At the heart of Republicanism is the core belief that our rights come from God, and no man can set our rights asunder.
Based on election statistics, efforts to push a third party result in Democrats winning elections. Witness what is happening today, we can all see how disastrous it is for our nation to have Democrats in total control of our government.
