Even this is blurred as shown by John McCain’s long-standing, but little-noticed association with donors such as George Soros and Teresa Heinz Kerry as it is now receiving new attention among his Republican critics. In 2001, McCain founded the Alexandria, Va.-based Reform Institute as a vehicle to receive funding from George Soros’ Open Society Institute and Teresa Heinz Kerry’s Tides Foundation and several other prominent non-profit organizations. McCain used the institute to promote his political agenda and provide compensation to key campaign operatives between elections. Let us remember, McCain called himself a conservative in 2008.
It is time we once again rename our political parties so the American voter understands for whom and what he is voting. The parties have conveniently and cleverly burred their ideas and slogans so the voter is confused. I would suggest we rename the parties along the true alignment of their beliefs so the voter understands when the ballot says rose; the name across the ballot is indeed a rose and not a carnation.
The true descriptive names for the political parties I am proposing will be Freedom Loving Americans for those Americans who wish to see the American Experiment continued with the Constitution followed. These people believe in a legal system that adheres to the concept of rule of law and not arbitrary and capricious law, a free enterprise system, and a federal government that understands its role is to protect citizens from outside aggressors including protecting our borders from illegals entering. Freedom Loving Americans also believe government’s role is not to make decisions on how citizens run their daily lives.
The other party will be called the Marxist/Progressive party. This party adheres to the philosophy of a conforming and egalitarian society with the government’s role to control the economic engine as well as societal beliefs. This party believes laws can be interrupted in whatever manner is necessary to accomplish their goals. The Marxist/Progressives also believe it is not only acceptable, but necessary for the forces of government to silence anybody who disagrees with their philosophy.
This is the reality of the political differences in the United
States today. Let us stop with the spin and political correctness to which we have become so accustomed, and let us remember, a rose by any other name is still a rose.
