5.0 out of 5 stars 48 Pages – A Masterpiece of Brevity: Now Do the Same for the Republicans,July 29, 2012

At 48 pages, one can only marvel how we have advanced to where a “book” can be a long article. Perhaps the price is right, perhaps not. What we can clearly see is that the author has a gift for incision, a gift we hope he will apply to the other half of the two-party tyranny.

30% of the eligible voters elected Obama, and a major reason he won so narrowly, despite breaking his promise to run on public funding, despite getting $750 million, $300 million of which is still not accounted for, was the treason within John McCain’s own camp. Staffed by Bushies, the McCain campaign was largely clueless, and not attentive to the correct gut feeling of the House Republicans — no bailout, insure from the bottom up with no evictions and no foreclosures.

What the author does not address is the FACT that on every charge that he makes against the Democrats, the Republicans [I was a Reagan Republican] having easily taken the lead under Newt Gingrich, who single-handedly overturned Article 1 of the Constitution and converted the Senate and the House into “foot-soldiers” for the President (when he was a Republican) and subversive obstructionists when not.

We in the USA live in a two-party tyranny, a criminal tyranny that excludes from both ballot access and vote relevance six other parties: Constitution, Green, Libertarian, Reform (active), and Natural Law and Socialist (inactive).

I ran for President for six weeks, more a self-education project than anything else, but accepted by the Reform Party as a candidate, registered with the FEC, and so on: We the People Reform Coaltion. We represent more intelligence and integrity than BOTH the Democratic and Republican parties put together, for one simple reason: our focus is on addressing the public interest, not looting the public coffers. There is NO DIFFERENCE between Romney and Obama–they are part of the same corrupt exclusive club that treats normal hard-working people as grist for their high finance mills.

I certainly recommend this book, but I challenge the author to do another 48 pages on the Republican Party, and then do a what if on ending the two-party tyranny and restoring the Republic–America the Beautiful.
