“It’s Cronyism, Stupid…”
Oh, wait that isn’t what James Carville said.
But it is true. Cronyism is at the root of all that is wrong with our society.
It is cronyism that creates an electoral system controlled by unelected bureaucrats. Both the DNC and RNC have produced candidates who, if it weren’t for their powerful crony supporters (whether it be the DNC itself or the Fox “News” political action committee) would not be the choices presented to the American public.
Cronyism results in political and economic tyranny.
Cronyism creates an environment where freedom and human individuality are frowned upon. Individual rights and liberty are squashed by cronyism.
Cronyism is corrupted capitalism.
Cronyism creates a collectivism that thrives in the form of hyper-nationalism and socialism. It loves to whip the masses into a socialist or nationalistic frenzy to further the goals of elite power.
Cronyism attempts the control the masses using fear. It discourages free thought and self education. While creating the illusion of choice, it controls what those choices are “for the good of society.” The only thing cronyism is interested in is its own power structures remaining intact.
And don’t be deceived – both major parties collude together to maintain their power. Coke or Pepsi?
Three out of five Americans want to see a third-party candidate at the debates. The undecided voter deserves to see all of the options on the debate stage. However, through the manipulation of the polls by minimizing the impact of voters under the age of 35, or restricting valid replies to those who already belong to either major political party, the appearance of lack of interest in third party candidates was created by the bi-partisan (NOT non-partisan) Commission for Presidential Debates.
