I came across this today while searching other conservative blogs, and must say I am very impressed! I am not decided on the best course of action for reform our nation, whether it be through the Republican party or a new party. The benefit of the using the Republicans is that they, as Glenn Beck has stated, already have the framework in place. However, this existing framework has a stigma attached to it that many find distasteful. It would be best that the reformist movement be open to left and right wing individuals that love the constitution and our country. All this said I would like to share this new ”American Federalist Party” platform being developed online. It is very interesting and in many ways a perfect example of the concerns of We the People.

What is the end game? When it comes to partisan politics, I argue that there is none. In today’s partisan government there is not much thought given to the consequence of ones actions in years to come. There is only the thought of how votes will effect the party and a politician’s chances at re-election. This is the root of our countries current peril. Those who have been putting in place the policies that have turned government on its head have a plan. They do not plan for re-election. They plan for the end result! It does not matter if they lose an election or suffer a defeat. The end is always in mind. The means are not important. They are working toward their twisted ideal. Nothing will stop their progress, but the well-thought, planned, opposition. We must Discover our end result. So that brings us to the question we have been asked so often in our lives: Where do you want to be in X years? Politicians take this question personally. They think of their careers and what they can do to enact a change that will cause a re-election in 4 years. As a society we need to ask this same question so I will ask… WHERE IS AMERICA IN TWENTY YEARS? Continue reading
