September 2004   Ted Lang
A Challenge To The Third Party, American's Greatest Election Opportunity By Ted Lang


By: Ted Lang

Unless you have been in total solitary confinement at Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo, Boston or any one of the growing and rapidly expanding American prisons, gulags and citizen detention centers quickly erected over the last several years, you may not be aware of the total futility of voting in the upcoming presidential election. As writer Alan Stang so cleverly ruminates, there really isn’t much of a choice. Kerry seems to offer only a slight advantage in that he only promises to continue Bush’s Marxist policies for a New World Order. Bush has already delivered heavily in this direction. Bush’s commitment to Israeli interests over our own and his dedication to the NWO via continuous war profiting the military industrial complex and Bush family investments in the Carlyle Group, and his increasing the national debt owed to the international banking cartel, both of which have made the Bush family wealthy, should disqualify Bush from any meaningful consideration – Kerry is the better choice because Rush Limbaugh will always be there to incite the Ignorati as concerns the treason of the Democrats kowtowing to the Illuminati. The Republican Party is now the pawn of the war profiteers and international bankers.

Many Americans are severely disappointed with the choices in this election; sadly, the Follywood Glitterati have it right [?] this time: Kerry is the better choice. In the humble opinion of this writer, either Bush or Kerry will drown us in the stagnant cesspool of an unproductive, socialist police state. It used to be Republicans that were on the slow track, but as Stang points out, when Republicans jettisoned Robert Taft in 1952, and Barry Goldwater in 1964, and Congressman Ron Paul today, you may rest assured that the Bush revolution is not only over – it never happened in the first place!

The hope that Republicans put in George Bush after eight years of Clinton has been ruthlessly and summarily crushed. I’ve been a Republican for forty years and am embarrassed to make such a confession. "It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us – that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to …." Yes, that’s from Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address – yet another Republican that said one thing and then did completely another. He similarly suspended the Bill of Rights and ignored the Constitution. But always remember this about Lincoln: he ran for president on the ticket of a new third party.

If ever a need presented itself for a third political party in a presidential election in the United States, this is it. Both Kerry and Bush continue to carry water for Israel in terms of the staggering foreign and military aid we provide to that extremely belligerent, war-inciting nation of five or six million. Not even equaling the population of New York City, site of the so-called "Republican Convention," Israel continues to command the American presidency and the American people’s congress to do its bidding. A Zionist sympathetic and owned American press and media, a communications and public information source once solely at the disposal of the liberal-controlled Democratic Party, Israel is now totally manipulating the Bush administration.

Some rudimentary activities in terms of overtures to consolidate minor political parties under the banner of the Constitution Party have been noted. But a coalition of both the Libertarian Party with the Constitution Party, perhaps even to include in some way Ralph Nader, would prove totally advantageous to all such coalition participants. Impossible you say – of course it is. The problem is, however, not the clash of desired policies each intends to advocate, but rather their failure to focus upon what is doable or not. This lack of vision extends as well to the critical tailspin our nation is in as concerns our individual freedoms and the rapidly expanding and technologically empowering police state we’re becoming.

The focus of this election should be the all-important objective of stopping the war in Iraq, preventing the neoconservative/Israeli objective of initiating war against Syria and Iran to further Israel’s imperialistic expansionism in the Middle East, and restoring our Bill of Rights by abolishing all provisions of the Patriot Act. The differences between the Libertarian agenda and that of the Constitution Party can be ironed out further on down the road. The objective for now should be the total elimination of the Bush-Kerry ticket.
