[Don Cox is responding to the articles by Tim Baldwin, “What can the People do to protect Liberty” – Ed]

The Republicans always seem to be the placeholders for the Democrats. It took just enough Republican Supreme Court Justices to rule that Obamacare was “Constitutional”. Funny it also took just enough Republicans to fund Obamacare as well.
What were the Republicans stomping their feet and throwing fits for anyway? Their guys like Newt and Romney were all pro national healthcare (until they ran for President). Actually I almost forgot, Romney wanted to Repeal and Replace Obamacare.
Numbers really don’t have anything to do with this. The Republicans let enough of their people vote against something to give the impression of opposition.
The Republican Party is nothing more than a controlled opposition. It is all just politics, really more like a choreographed wrestling match. The Republicans haven’t ever significantly changed the laws towards freedom at any time in their existence, because “there isn’t a dimes worth of difference between them”.
There is only one difference, which one gets to be the winner, in this choreographed wrestling match. Who is going to be the winner on any given bill? That is easy to figure out, whoever is trying to take away your Freedom will generally always be the winner.
In fact, most of the time the Republicans are the biggest spenders, oath breakers, snoopers, war mongers (without declaration of war), taxation through citation, taxation, inflators and more. Who needs Democrats with Republicans acting like that?
I do think Ed is right that we need to get better people through the primaries, unfortunately these same people control the election officials, office of political practices, Secretary of State, election machines and who gets the printed money donated to their campaigns.
If your leaders “the Bushies” are members of the order of death (Skull and Bones) and they change your logo from stars to pentagrams, you may want to rethink who you are actually supporting. Don’t worry Jeb is waiting in the wings with his devilish smile.
