Kentucky: Where Registered Independent Voters Aren’t Allowed To Vote

Kentucky: Where Registered Independent Voters Aren’t Allowed To Vote

 

Okay, so I have ALWAYS registered as an Independent, only to find out that Kentucky doesn’t allow Independents to vote in any of the primaries. That COMPLETELY makes me an irrelevant voter. Let’s face it both parties have always had crooks and liars presented to us as candidates. That’s the whole point of voting as an independent. I don’t want to be forced to vote Republican or Democrat. I want to be able to make my own decision as to who to vote for. Now the only thing I can do as an Independent voter is choose between whichever crook and liar the two parties put before us in November. POINTLESS!!!

 

One person one vote? No, I don’t believe that it is true in politics here in America today. My wife, son and I are registered voters as Independents, this is supposed to mean that you are not tied to any party, you can vote for whomever you choose. Florida was the first state I personally came across that did their political system like Kentucky does. I leave you with this thought. Some people defend their right to not let you vote during a primary because you have to be a registered member of their party don’t you know. Otherwise it wouldn’t ‘be fair”, really? Here is the irony of this fraud voting system, we Independents can vote in the main elections in November though. After the DNC and the RNC have figured out which one of their people who ‘we the people’ are going to be allowed to vote for. How come I can’t vote for Bernie Sanders today but if he is on the ballot in November representing the Democratic party, I can vote for him then? What I am saying is that I believe this current system is illegal as in Unconstitutional. Every person must be allowed the opportunity to vote equal times otherwise the State is not acting legally just as the RNC and the DNC are doing and being sanctioned by some of the States to do it. One person one vote, no not in Kentucky!

America Has Had 16 Years Of Clinton Policies Does She Deserve More Oval Office Time?

 

I am not going to argue one way or the other about if Ms. Hillary should or will become our next President here in this post today. What I am going to do today is to simply ask you the question of, does she deserve more time inside the Oval Office? You may well say that she has never had the job of President so what do I mean by the 16 years in office statement? In her campaign speeches she touts the things she will do as President for our country and the world, as if the world is in a mess and only she can fix it, if only we the people will give her the chance to do so. She brags about her husband Bill as being a great former President and of course she had 8 years sitting on his lap so she should get some credit for his policies. Is that fair to connect her with Bill’s accomplishments back in 1993-2001? Only you can decide that issue in your own heart and brain. Should any First Lady ever have the influence inside the White House that Ms. Hillary had while Bill was our President?

 

For those of you who are new to this site you may be thinking right now that I am a Republican and I am just dumping on Ms. Hillary, but those who do follow my posts you know that is not at all correct. I am a registered Independent because I have no use for either of these crooked to the core political party’s. Now back to the issue in today’s title. Ms. Hillary resigned her post as President Obama’s Secretary of State at the end of Mr. Obama’s first four-year term. Pretty much everyone in America knew that she was doing this (resigning) because she knew that President Obama had made a whole lot of enemy’s and that he might not win a second term and if he didn’t win and she was in her ‘position’ that she would be soiled along with him and that would hurt her when she ran for President in 2016. Plus there is the fact that both Clinton’s hate both Obama’s and that the hate was/is mutual. She had nothing to lose and everything to gain by getting off of President Obama’s ship. Whether Mr. Obama won or lost in the 2012 election Mrs. Clinton would be a winner if she took that next four years to get her Democratic Party engine in high gear for this current 2016 election.

 

Because of the long-standing hate the Obama’s and the Clinton’s have for each other Mrs. Clinton for about three of these years she was trying to distance herself from President Obama’s policies because she didn’t want to be associated with him. About one year ago you could easily see her shift in direction when she realized that there was no way to separate herself from Mr. Obama and his policies. There was no way that she could run against the Presidents policies and still win the Black vote that she absolutely has to have to win this November. So, even though she hates President and Mrs. Obama she had no choice but to run toward the President’s policies if she wanted to win the Democratic nomination. So, now on the political ‘stump’ she brags up the 8 Clinton years of her husband and the 8 years of the Obama Administration and how much more she can get done if we will just elect her for our next President. My personal biggest negative I have about Ms. Hillary is the well-known fact that she never seems to have a clue about what the truth is when she opens her mouth. In other words I have trouble ever believing what she says, when she says something can you honestly believe her?

 

A question I have for her is, since your people (her husband and Mr. Obama) have been sitting in the Oval Office for 16 of the last 24 years, why haven’t they already done these things she says need to be done? She has had her butt sitting in the Oval Office for 12 of those 16 years, what she is saying now is that those 16 years were/are a failure because they didn’t get ‘her agenda’ accomplished, why not? Why should we the people of America believe her on her ‘agenda’, is it really her agenda, or is it just more smoke she is blowing up her panties? Do not get me wrong by thinking I was pleased with the buffoon we had in that Office for 8 years between these two Democrats. I personally believe that because of President George W.’s Iraq policies that he, Mr. Cheney and Mr. Rumsfeld are without a doubt, War Criminals. As I said earlier, I am a registered Independent and I do vote that way. So, what do you think, should we the people of America give Mrs. Clinton and her beliefs (if she has such a thing) another 4 or 8 years? After those five state primaries last evening it does look like on November 1st we are going to have the choice between two people for our next President, Mr. Teflon Don and Ms. Hillary, which one will it be?

This November The Voters Need At Least These Five Candidates To Vote For!

 

This Presidential Election is where Americans needs to rid our chains of the two-party system. Why can’t we the people have a third, fourth, fifth, or even six viable candidates? Here is exactly what I propose, the Democratic and Republican Party Leadership need to do if they want to maintain any amount of control at their Conventions. Obviously I am saying that my proposal needs to be done before their Conventions, once I have given you the list of five and the reason why them, then decide what you think of the idea okay?

 

First I would like you to think about Ms. Hillary and Mr. Sanders on the Democratic side of the political aisle. Mr. Sanders policies make him more liberal than the policies of Ms. Hillary. Mr. Sanders is not a registered Democrat, he is just like me, a registered Independent, even though he seems to vote with the Democrats most of the time. It would be easy to see why Mr. Sanders would choose to go as a third candidate platform on his own, or if  the DNC thinks that Mr. Sanders will cause the Party too much grief at their Convention they could just divorce him from them now. The ‘Main Stream’ Democratic Machine has chosen Ms. Hillary as their candidate so if the Democratic folks have a Conservative Candidate to put up on the spit they should get that option also shouldn’t they?

 

Concerning the RNC ‘Main Stream’ Republicans they fume at the thought of Senator Cruz being their Candidate because evidently to know him is, ‘to not like him’. Main stream Republicans hate the ‘Tea Party’ as mush as the Tea Party people hate the Republican main streamers. This mixture of theologies from its inception was a divorce waiting to happen. Now folks, now is a real good time to file that paperwork. Also folks we need to consider Mr. Trump and what he has brought to the Republican Party as far as turnout for the Republican Primaries. There is no doubt that the leaders of the RNC would love it if Mr. Trump decided to fall off the face of the earth or, just get the heck out of ‘their’ party. What I am saying is the RNC should excommunicate Mr. Trump and Mr. Cruz from the Republican Party right now thus severing ties with the Tea Party in the process. Under these conditions the ‘Establishment Republicans’ would need someone as their Candidate. Would they go to ‘the last man standing’ in Governor Kasich, or maybe revert back to Mr. Rubio, or maybe Mr. Romney?

 

For now think about five choices on the Presidential Ballot form and anyone can vote for anyone of the five, Clinton, Sanders, Trump, Cruz, or Kasich. Now, would you as a voter feel more like your voice may be heard than with only the normal two choices the RNC and the DNC decide we should get to vote on? The way the DNC has backed Ms. Hillary is disgusting. Honestly folks, there should not be any such a thing as ‘super delegates’, how in the heck are they Constitutionally legal? They give a very very tiny percent of the people a huge amount of say-so on as to who gets their Parties nomination. You know we the people get enough B.S. thrown at us with this ‘Electoral College’ garbage then we the people have to put up with ‘these Very Privileged’ people! Folks why not have (Our Votes) cast on at least these five options on election day this November 1st? Then about two weeks later if no one person received at least 50.001% of the vote let there be another election two weeks later between the top two vote receivers. Then we the people would have another thing to be thankful for on Thanksgiving Day. Thankful that the two weeks of the political ads are over with, and that ‘we the people’ finally had a bit of actual ‘say-so’ as to who our  next President will be. I’m just saying folks…

The Bill And The B.S.

The Bill And The B.S.

 

So the Politicians in Washington were actually able to work together enough to get a Budget Bill passed, congrats to them on this achievement. Yet We The People have the right to say to those folks that it is about damn time you did something that wasn’t bi-polar! Example being, we see and realize that as soon as a Bill is passed, any Bill, right away you get party spin about any good things that your party liked or didn’t. Trouble is most anything ever passed, and very little is passed, is all one Party sided. Personally my political views are independent of either Party and personally I believe that most people are. We often end up voting for, if we vote at all or even register for that matter, the one we consider to be the least of the two evils. I agree with neither Party Platform, some of the things that the Democrats are for, I am for. But also I am against some of their views, just as I am with the Republicans and some of their views. Until the liberal left of the Democratic Party and the far right of the Republican Party begin to hold only a little sway within their own leaderships will the individual Representative be unhindered to vote their own and their voters own conscience.

They are (mostly all) full of it and we the public are so sick of all of them (most all). I am sick of both party leaderships. It is they that always put so much interior pressure on the people that we voted into office. I voted for my Tennessee Congressman and Senator, I did not vote for their party leaders to dictate to them how they vote. I did not vote for an Ohio or Nevada Representative, and no one should have the power to dictate to them how they will vote on any issue, except the voter who voted them in. Then, we have a democracy where the people rule, not some tiny Round Table with only five or six Players.

The Tea Party Party

The Tea Party Party

Today I read on Yahoo news that the rookie senator from Texas, Mr Ted Cruz is holding up the vote on President Obama’s choice to head the FCC (Federal Communication Commission). This is the same person who spoke for about 22 hours on the Senate floor to hold up the new healthcare bill shortly before the government shutdown. He is the figurehead of the Tea Party sect of the Republican Party it seems. I asked my wife the question “how is it possible for one Senator, especially a rookie Senator, to have the power or ability to stop a vote like this in the Senate”?

When the Tea Party first began a few years ago I had big hopes that it would become a third party not associated with either of the big two. I am not positive about the roots of this movement at it’s inception as to the direction that it’s founders wanted to go in. But, there is no doubt that the far right wing of the Republican Party kidnaped the movement. With this result the hopes of a neutral third party evaporated.

I am a registered independent voter and yes I do vote. I like a lot of people I have spoken with feel that when I vote I am not really voting for a certain candidate as much as I am voting for whom I feel is the least dangerous person to our Constitution and to the American people. The choices that we the people get to vote for is pathetic, this is why I was hoping that the Tea Party would be an independent party. Even though I agree with most of what they stand for I don’t agree with them or anyone totally gridlocking the government. They refuse to compromise on anything even when they know they are at best only about 10% of the vote. The Republican Party is letting the tail wag the dog. On a tail sometimes it is necessary to cut the tail off to save the dog from being put down.

I grew up in a Democratic believing family. I liked Jimmy Carter as a person and I voted for him in 1976, but in 1980 I voted for Ronald Reagan. Something that Mr Reagan used to say was that “I didn’t leave the Democratic Party, the Democratic Party left me”. With age I have learned what Mr Reagan meant. Today, I as a Christian find it very difficult to vote for a person who is in favor of the murdering of defenceless little children. As you probably know abortion rights are one of the main staples of the national Democratic platform. But, a lot of their other beliefs I agree with. I have been voting mostly Republican since President Reagan but the current game playing in DC is making it very difficult to vote for their candidates either.

Politics by it’s nature is supposed to be the “art of compromise”, in DC as well as at the state level and in some places even below the state level, the two main parties simply are refusing to compromise on most anything. In todays politicians the only thing that matters is them winning with no regard or caring about what damage they are doing to the country and our people. As an example, when George W Bush was the President a lot of his policies were not popular with a lot of the Republican politicians but they went along with “their” President while the Democrats voted against most everything the Republicans put out onto the floor. But when Mr Obama became the President everything switched even when the policies were the same as President Bush’s policies. To most of these crepes in DC, winning is the only game. When you and I vote for our Congressman/ woman or Senator we are voting for this person to represent our beliefs. But when they get to Washington or the State Houses they find out that they MUST vote the way the party leadership tells them to or they won’t get to be on any committees, their bills they want to sponsor will never see the light of day and when it comes time for your reelection they (your party) will sponsor someone else to run against you in your primary and your party will give you no financial help at all. So, you do what you are told to do or you will be one term and out. I totally believe this system is non-American to say the least. I did not vote for Harry Reid or Nancy Pelosi, I voted for my congressman and my Senator but they are not allowed to vote for my beliefs or interest.

What I totally believe the Republican Party must do, but doesn’t have the balls to do is to evict the Tea Party from their ranks. This would make them a third party and the rest of the Republican Party could then do as they believe. I also still believe that a 4th party should be established within the Democratic Party expelling the far left of their party. I really don’t think any of this will happen because none of these politicians seem to have any guts. Then, I would like to see a real unattached 5th party created. This would make our country more of a democracy where our votes count more that a single Congressman or Senator who has so much control over a whole group of people that WE THE PEOPLE voted into office to REPRESENT US, the people.

Government Has Shut Down Because Of Obamacare-Opinion

Well today is Sunday October 6th so the American people and the world have survived six days of our federal government not functioning. But, many people might argue that our government never functions, at least not very well. I guess that I am like a lot of folks who are sick and tired of the DC two step, referring to the two dysfunctional, self serving, anti-American people, two party system that is in place now. I am a registered voter, registered as an Independent because I can not and do not agree with much of what each party seems to want to do too the people.

I grew up in a family that were devoted Democrats because my parents felt that the Democrats were for the working poor and that the Republicans were only for the wealthiest 1%. I am what many used to refer to as a Reagan Democrat, as he used to say “I didn’t leave the Democrat Party, it left me”. So, sometime I have voted for a Democrat and sometimes for a Republican, I have no allegiance to either party. I have certain beliefs and ways of doing things that I would like to see followed in government, trouble is, neither party is worthy of my vote. But, what do we the people do, not vote at all? None of those three options are going to help our nation though! When the Tea Party movement was just starting up I was hoping that it would become a viable third party, instead it was kidnaped by the far right of the Republican Party. It should be obvious that neither party cares about anything except winning, politics by definition is supposed to be the art of compromise. What we the people are seeing now is that the two parties refuse to compromise on anything because it is all about them winning and the other guys losing.

Currently the Republican Party in Congress is listening to their parties far right (because their non tea party members are afraid of them) and so we have this ignorant, dangerous, shut down. Does the fact that non-essential workers like FBI agents, and security analyst are on a (will be paid later) furlow, while essential workers like White House cooks and maids are having to work amuse you, or anger you? Another area that all of us should be concerned is the “full faith and credit” of our government/country, to quote our President, is in danger if these “leaders” don’t do what we the people are paying them to do. Also folks, do you remember that the last time there was a shut down our nation’s credit rating was downgraded, do any of us really think that another downgrade won’t occur? If DC keeps this up will it become a situation where the rest of the world decides to drop the dollar as the worlds main currency?

By no means am I in favor of the Obamacare law, but, this law passed the House and the Senate and the President signed it, so, I am P.O.’ed at the Republican House for what is going on with this shut down. If the Republicans want to repeal this law make it a main center piece if their 2016 platform. If they can win the House, Senate, and the White House, then they can legally repeal it. The Republicans are setting a precedent for the Democrats to use in the future against Republican administrations. I wish I had all the answers for the things that ail our country, our people, I don’t, I just know that the politicians are destroying the greatest country the world has ever know (in my opinion).
