Am I the Only One?
I am not a Democrat, nor am I a Republican anymore. I am a Conservative, and I am proud to stand by this label.
I believe in God, the Declaration of Independence, the US Constitution, the Bill of Rights, life, liberty, private property, and we the people.
It's that simple. Politicians will try to tell us that it is more complicated than that, and that we just don't understand. Hogwash.
Politicians (most of whom are lawyers) MAKE the process complicated, but it was never meant to be this way.
It will be of little avail to the people, that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man, who knows what the law is to-day, can guess what it will be to-morrow.I refuse to be told by the media or these parties for whom to vote. They may think us idiots but upon primary day, let the joke be happily on them.
