|George Washington in 1796 by Gilbert Stewart|
This spirit, unfortunately, is inseparable from our nature, having its root in the strongest passions of the human mind. It exists under different shapes in all governments, more or less stifled, controlled, or repressed; but, in those of the popular form, it is seen in its greatest rankness, and is truly their worst enemy.
The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism.
The disorders and miseries which result gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of public liberty."
1796 Farewell Address
"There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution."
|Governor Jesse Ventura (Independence Party of Minnesota) wants us|
to return to a non-partisan Republic.
A Non-Partisan Republic?
In a new interview the great Jesse "The Body" Ventura addresses the insanity of our current corrupt system of elections and political parties.
Ventura wants to abolish political parties. In this he is marching in lockstep with our Federalist Founding Fathers. A non-partisan government is possible. The state legislature of Nebraska is non-partisan. The cities and counties of California are non-partisan.
SYSTEM FAILURE: The current partisan political system has brought us the bankruptcy of America, attacks on the Bill of Rights, the government confiscation of private property at the death of the owner, the Marxist re-distribution of wealth and the cradle-to-grave Welfare State. All of this to buy votes and elect one party over another.
With a track record like that I will stand with Washington, Adams and Ventura for a non-partisan government.
New words of wisdom from Jesse Ventura:
"The only way to do it is what I advocate for now. I don’t support the third party movement anymore. I support the abolishment of all these political parties.
The world is set up today so that you don’t vote for the person, you vote for the party. And it’s the parties that control the government. We were warned by John Adams that that would be the downfall of America.
I would turn the political parties into what they are, political action committees. The first thing I would do is change all election laws to where only names go on the ballot. No political parties are set on a ballot, that way the electorate has to educate themselves.
…also on all ballots should be the option at the bottom “none of the above,” which is a vote of no confidence for the government. Imagine if you won the election but lost to “none of the above.” It might make you rethink your position.
Those are two simple things we could accomplish right now that could help bring integrity back to the United States of America.
Vote for anyone but Democrats and Republicans and you’ll get a change in government."For link to video
|Our Federalist Founding Fathers created a non-partisan Republic.|
The Founders did not envision a party system that would steal money
from the Treasury to line the pockets of party supporters and to
buy votes every two years from the general public.
