Welcome to the Party of Government, the Only Political Party in the USA

You think you have a choice, Democrat or Republican. They are entirely different, are they not? Democrats want to raise government revenue by raising tax rates, thus increasing tax revenue by targeting the most prosperous. They want to redistribute these funds back into the USA in the form of services like education, social services, corporate bailouts, infrastructure, the war in Afghanistan, and other projects. This is completely different from Republicans. The GOP wants to raise taxes by lowering tax rates, broadening the tax base, and growing the economy. Republicans want to redistribute these funds back into the USA in the form of services like education, social services, corporate bailouts, infrastructure, wars, and other projects. Democrats want to focus on controlling the way you do business, and how you spend your money by regulating most industries. Republicans focus on passing laws focused on controlling your personal lives, such as laws against placing unauthorized substances in your bodies. Both parties support the taking of control over your lives from you and granting it to us at the government. Both parties support the taking of increasing amounts of money from you people for our purposes; they only differ on the method. A vote for one of the two parties is a vote for bigger, stronger government. You only get to choose the method of growth, or the method by which we further erode your freedoms.

Consider one of your recent presidential elections. The fact that McCain and Obama had remarkably similar Senate voting records is a strong indicator of the similarities between each party’s nominee. Any review of recent history will indicate that Obama’s behavior in office increasingly resembles that of his predecessor. Do you really think McCain would have been all that different? McCain and Obama’s primary difference began and ended in their rhetoric. 

What this boils down to is each party selling you Americans different justifications to reach the same end. Our end. That way people of different political views will vote for and enthusiastically support causes that benefit us. It is a rather brilliant strategy. The USSR attempted to run elections within an overtly single party state, and they failed. There's an old corporate trick of marketing the same product under different brand names to appeal to different markets; GM has mastered this and simultaneously capitalized on several different consumer bases. The not-so-obvious-merging-of-the-two-parties method we at the US Federal Government are currently employing is working even better; we in Government have made both political parties our two primary marketing arms, harnessing support from persons of all different views and focusing it on us, entirely for our greater empowerment.  You have no real choice among candidates other than to support our agenda at the Government, and you people are too stupid to realize it.  Keep on fighting with those in the other party; it keeps you people motivated and ultimately fighting for us, and donate your time and $ to us.

You Americans are left with just one party; the party of government. The Government Party supports an ever increasing Federal Government in terms of function, size, revenue, and power exercised over the US civilian population. We may say otherwise, but actions speak louder than words.

Now you know why nothing ever changes no matter who you people elect. Our man always wins.

A lady asked Dr. Franklin Well Doctor what have we got a republic or a monarchy — "A republic," replied the Doctor, "if you can keep it."

We Put You Right Back Into The Caste System Your Ancestors Fled

Your ascendants left England to, among other reasons, escape the caste system. Your ascendants were locked into a system in which there was no upward mobility. They were stuck as peasants in a system that considered them inferior and did not recognize their rights as human beings, but instead assigned them limited privileges based on their low caste. The severity of a crime was determined by not just by the crime itself, but by the difference in caste between the offender and offended. Guess what; we put you back into a caste system here in the USA, and you didn’t even notice.
You don’t believe me? Consider assault. 

Assault is a crime. We at the government usually choose to enforce laws against assaulting US citizens, although assault against a person higher up in the caste system is prosecuted much more aggressively. Commit assault against a police officer or other government employee, and we will show you exactly how aggressively we enforce the law and prosecute those who commit crimes against us. Our new royalty, those persons holding or who have held high public offices, often enjoy the protection of law enforcement personnel who exist entirely to protect their cast. Look up the many laws against assaulting government employees and see how broadly “assault” is defined.

Now, consider assault against a citizen by a police officer. The vast majority of police brutality cases are never prosecuted because the prosecution, or government, tends to favor its own government people which includes police officers. We have a legal system in place which exempts police officers from what would normally be considered an unprovoked violent assault. “Roughing up” a suspect during an arrest is even encouraged at times. We at the government tend to be one big happy family, and family is always loyal to family.

The caste system in the USA is as follows:

1st caste: Politicians and political appointees. They enjoy the
highest degree of legal protection and privilege for life.

2nd caste: Government employees. They generally live
comfortable lives with secure lifetime income at the
expense of the 3rd caste. They also enjoy significant
legal protection.

3rd caste: US private citizens. This is the labor caste. Their work
is responsible for all economic productivity. Every other caste is
dependent on the taxes extorted from the private citizens.  We 
permit them to keep a portion of their income to keep them 
motivated to work hard for us.

4th caste: Inmates. This consists almost entirely of members
of the 3rd caste who were demoted by members of the 2nd caste
acting under the laws made by the 1st caste.

You have been conditioned by us to accept the above terms. Imagine how you would react to seeing a fleeing person suspected of theft tackled on pavement and placed forcefully under arrest. Now imagine your reaction if the arresting person was a Wal-Mart employee tackling and restraining someone he thought was a shop lifter. Your government given bias allows the police officer to “do his job,” but you would never allow one of your own to do the same. You hardly blink an eye when the first caste is permitted to bypass our TSA screening process, or mismanage vast sums of public funds without consequence. Welcome to the caste system. You know your place and you fit right in.
Did you know your president is now permitted to assassinate human beings at will? That’s right, the days of the King’s ability to arbitrarily kill you are back. He is free to order the deaths of US Citizens at his sole discretion, without a conviction, due process, or even an accusation. Even us down here in the 2nd caste are free to violently beat our 3rd caste wives with minimal interference. Your constitution cannot protect you.

History affords us many instances of the ruin of states, by the prosecution of measures ill suited to the temper and genius of their people. The ordaining of laws in favor of one part of the nation, to the prejudice and oppression of another, is certainly the most erroneous and mistaken policy. An equal dispensation of protection, rights, privileges, and advantages, is what every part is entitled to, and ought to enjoy... These measures never fail to create great and violent jealousies and animosities between the people favored and the people oppressed; whence a total separation of affections, interests, political obligations, and all manner of connections, by which the whole state is weakened.
- Benjamin Franklin, Emblematical Representations, Circa 1774
