Lesser Of Two Evils: Yet Another False Notion

Which of these is the “Lesser” of the options? (image: © 2012 TJ Thompson)

.

e·vil /ˈēvəl/ –  AdjectiveProfoundly immoral and malevolent.

“Voting for the lesser of two evils is voting for LESS evil. That equates to voting for MORE good. I like the idea of voting to make things better rather than worse.”   Dave Nalle, national chairman of the Republican Liberty Caucus–
_______________________________________________________________________________________________________
.
     The idea that voting for the “lesser of two evils” is equal to voting for “good” is a pestilence that continues to ravage the livelihood of this once great nation.  Evil is Evil, regardless of the degree.  Just as Murder is Murder; whether it is 1st degree murder or 3rd degree murder, it is still murder.
.
     What will it take to wake you up?  I have asked this question many times, and I have begged for answers.  Today, America is in a despicable state of affairs.  The once dominant economy is now feeble and on the brink of implosion.  The literal lifeblood of liberty, the U.S. Constitution, is being ravaged to mere remnanats.  The White House is circumventing Congress to implement policy.  The Justice Department – the Department of Injustice, rather – is bartering weapons that are killing border agents.  Two “wars” continue without a Declaration of War from the Congress, and the government is threatening more war without a declaration.
.
     Again I ask: What will it take to wake you up?
.
     Most voters have been deceived into believing that there are differences between Barack Obama and Willard “Mitt” Romney.  Just as you have been cunningly convinced that there is a difference between MSNBC and Fox News.  Most Americans have swallowed the bait and believe the lie that there is a difference between Republicans and Democrats.  Yes, we have a bicameral congress, but it operates under a unilateral political machine.
.
    I know that after that last paragraph, some readers scoffed and said to themselves, “there is a difference between all of those!”  Do you really believe that?  Sincerely?  Or is that what they want you to believe?
.
“artists use lies to tell the truth, while politicians use them to cover the truth up”
.
    To prove that there is no difference between Republicans and Democrats, just look at history.  Examine the foreign policy under Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, H.W. Bush, Reagan, Carter, et. al.  One could also examine the economic policy under each of these men.  Domestic policy.  Fiscal policy.  Even their records on protecting the U.S. Constitution.  Let’s not forget that Congress – comprised of both Republicans and Democrats – bears the blame for the very policies, as well.
.
     The policy positions and outcomes under Republican presidents and congresses are virtually identical to those under Democrats.  Undeclared wars, higher government spending, higher taxes, destruction of the currency, and loss of liberty for Americans.  No differences exist between the two alleged parties.
.
     But what about the news stations?  They have obvious, glaring differences, right?  Wrong.  MSNBC and Fox News are both run by corporations.  Any corporation’s highest priority is making money.  These companies are profiting by helping to further the false “Left Vs. Right” idea.  MSNBC panders to those who cheer for the “Blue” team.  As is with all competitions, there must be a minimum of two sides, thus Fox News is the “Red Team” cheerleader.  The various cable news outlets simply chose a demographic, and played to them.  Television is theater – never forget that.
.
     When you brush aside the smokescreen, you will see that MSNBC and Fox News are one in the same.  Both expand the fallacy that Democrats and Republicans are different, and they have monetized that lie very well.
.
.
     Political labels and news networks aside, there must be a difference between President Barack Obama and his challenger Mitt Romney, right?
.
     Wrong again.

Remember when George W. Bush was the most despised man in America for his delayed response to Hurricane Katrina?  Where was that hate and vile for Barack Obama during the BP Gulf Oil Spill?  Even though GWB was Republican and BHO is Democrat, the actions/reactions were the same.

.
     Remember when Americans were outraged and calling for impeachment when The Patriot Act stripped our Constitutional liberty and freedom?  Where was that outrage when Obama signed the NDAA?  Where was the outrage when Romney said “Yes I would” when asked if he would have signed the NDAA? Romney is the Republican and BHO is the Democrat, yet the assault and battery against the liberty and freedom of Americans is the same.
.
     When George W. Bush invaded Iraq, America was angry.  When Obama started bombing Libya, America was angry.  But Iran?  I guess it’s okay with America if we start another war, so long as it is with Iran:
“We don’t take any options off the table in terms of how we operate with Iran”  – Barack Obama
.
“I reserve all options”Barack Obama
.
“Military options are on the table and, in fact, in our hand … I will have those military options.  I will take those crippling sanctions and put them in place”Mitt Romney
     Which one is for “More Good”, Obama or Romney?
.
     War is never good.  War is always evil.
.
     The budget deficits that have been tallied up over the last dozen years have Americans in an uproar.  Our national debt has surpassed the GDP of our entire nation.  Romney blames Obama for the expansion of the debt, and proposes a solution.  Obama blames Bush and proposes a solution.  What are each of their plans?
.
     Romney – Cap spending at 20% of the GDP.
     Obama – Continue at the current pace.
.
     Romney’s plan to cap spending at 20% of the GDP would cap spending at $3.0434 Trillion – which would run a deficit of $732.4 Billion in the first year, using current spending and revenue figures.  Obama is currently running a deficit of $1.3029 Trillion.  Both men will continue to drive the US deeper into debt by spending money that we don’t have.  Both men plan to continue the intergenerational child abuse by spending the economic futures of our children and grandchildren, and by selling their economic futures to other nations, such as China.
.
     Which plan is “Less Evil”, Obama or Romney?
.
     Debt and economic enslavement is like murder: always evil, regardless of the degree.
.
     On December 31st, 2011, President Obama signed into law the National Defense Authorization Act – or the NDAA.  The NDAA allows for military detention of U.S. citizens without charge or trial.  During a GOP Presidential debate, Mitt Romney was asked if he would have signed it, and his answer was simply, “Yes I would have.”
.
     Which man is “Less Evil”, Obama or Romney?
.
     Stripping the freedom and liberty of Americans – and any individual – is always evil, regardless of the party represented.
.
     How is Mitt Romney the “Lesser Evil” in this election?
.
    This November, the options are Evil Vs. Evil.  One is not lesser than the other.  One is not more than the other.  Voting for one will not bring “more good” than voting for the other.
.
Evil will prevail.
.

    I see only one evil in the photo, that is willard romney, the joker who pioneered outsourcing, wants the rich to pay less taxes, wants to send all of the illegals back home, institute the dignity of work in Black communities as if their is none. Romeny feels if you are poor you can get rich like him. Not everyone has the intellect, savy, drive, arrogance, good looks to be wealthy. People work hard and are still poor,; two, three jobs. I guess everyone should become a vulture capitalist like Willard.; that rat sent so many jobs overseas and invested and put his money in their banks.

    I see one devil and that is Willard Romney. I would not trust him to manage my piggy bank.

    Well TH you’ve got a big part, if not most of the problem figured out– You’re not the only one, there’s been an ongoing discussion at TPN for several days about dropping the GOP cold- or trying to take control of it

    The tools are available to solve the the problem.. With twitter, Facebook and friendly websites inexpensive grassroots campaigns are a realistic possibility- Most voters are afraid of the idea
