So what is the true relevance to the outcome of the hotly contested special election in NY District 23. Democrats feel the outcome would be an indictment regarding the American public’s acceptance/rejection of the Obama administration’s policy initiatives. Republicans are taking that similar view, but apparently want to test to GOP members’ support of RHINO initiatives. However, the most significant issue at stake is the success of a third-party candidate and how that may permanently alter the left/right paradigm created by the divisive politics through which both democrats and republicans have defined themselves.
For those Americans, like myself, who realize the (d) and (r) political parties are merely mechanisms to keep Americans divided, this is a defining moment in history that will hopefully demonstrate the failings of this fake two-party political system. We have the GOP establishment backing a candidate who is, at best, a moderate RHINO. Apparently. the strategy is to line the party with RHINOs in order to confuse enough center-leaning democrats to gain their support of the GOP. Personally, the GOP appears to be lost, with no identification, looking for rocks to cling to as it falls over the cliff.
With the likes of Lindsey Graham, John McCain, Joe Lieberman, Arlen Specter, Olympia Snowe, Susan Collins, etc., the once-conservative GOP is so splintered they can’t figure out whether to garner support from the “religious right or from La Raza. Apparently, since the GOP has no identity, they want to be everything to everyone. The republican establishment is so splintered, you have members of this lost organization supporting a candidate, Dede Scozzafava, who supports abortion and gay marriage.
Outraged with the GOP backing of the moderate/liberal candidate, the conservative 3rd-party candidate, Doug Hoffman, entered the race against the liberal and the extremely liberal candidates. All things considered, the poll numbers show that Hoffman is a formidable and credible challenger. He is a true conservative. However, the GOP has waged war against this conservative and re-filled the empty campaign warchest of Scozzafava. She has been endorsed by the GRNC, Michael Steele, Newt Gingrich, John Boehner (R-Ohio), Pete Sessions (R-TX), Charlie Dent (R-PA), NRA, 16 local unions in 3 NY counties, Eric Cantor (R-VA), Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), Jeb Hensarling (R-TX), ex-Rep. Nancy Johnson (R-CT), amongst other RHINOs. Hoffman’s endorsements include Steve Forbes, Rick Santorum, Todd Thiart (R-KS), Sarah Palin, Club for Growth, Fred D. Thompson, State Troopers Police Benevolent Association, Susan B. Anthony List, Gary Bauer, Michele Bachmann (R-MN), GOP conservative blog Red State, amongst others.
The GOP’s primary argument against the conservative Doug Hoffman is that a vote for him is a vote for the (d) party because it will split the (r) vote. That’s it. They surely aren’t going to emphasize backing an abortion supporter. No, just the same old scare tactics merely to have an (r) seat going to Congress.
To those of you riding the fence on this issue and don’t feel like you’re represented in Congress, I hope you will stay on the fence and not fall on either the (r) or (d) side and support the Independent party candidate. This is the time to take a stand and take the initiative to reject the divisive politics from both republicans and democrats. Of course, there are those who want progressive, total government control with cradle-to-grave nanny-state governance. Then there are those who want to bomb every perceived enemy, maintain a police-state, and perpetuate the “boogie man under your bed” mentality, while preaching to turn the other cheek. You know, from George Soros to Jon Hagee. Those are the extreme elements of society and, even though in the minority, have unlimited finances to spread their propaganda and coerce compliance. Reject the extremes of these elements and the self-serving politicians who serve only special interests, not you.
This most important election will provide a barometer of support for the 3rd-party political movement, which has struggled to gain traction to this point. Both (d) and (r) parties will stifle all attempts to keep Americans from waking up to the truth. While it may be perceived, by those voters in NY 23rd Congressional district, that those outside the district don’t have a horse in this race, think again. This is a referendum on whether Americans are tired and disgusted that both major political parties have become merely power-hungry political machines hell-bent on earning their commission for carrying out the destruction of America. Please New Yorkers and other Americans, take a stand against the sell-out of America and vote 3rd party in order to set the stage for all U.S. elections of the future.
