Partisan Politics

Posted by Marietta chiropractor on January 14, 2008

I’ve watched with interest during this Presidential primary campaign at all the partisan bickering. During the last 12 years, at least, that’s all we’ve seen. Actually, I think it really started during the Clarence Thomas hearings. Many people see to think it’s time for partisan politics to come to an end. I disagree.

Personally, I think partisanship is a GOOD thing. When the people’s interest is promoted in a partisan way, usually principle wins out. When compromise rules the day, only the politicians and/or bureaucrats win. I’ve always believed that NO solution is better than a compromised Government solution.

We all talk about. Funny, all things were designed to adapt to change, even the human body and the entire ecosystem. It’s only when systems can NOT adapt that they get sick and die. The same applies to every aspect of life, including families, churches and political parties. BUT, change for the sake of change is not healthy.

Republicans worship Reagan for what he accomplished. But, it wasn’t necessarily Ronald Reagan that made those things happen. It was the principles of freedom and smaller Government that made them work. Reagan, The Great Communicator, simply stood fast on those principles and the rest is history. The same can be said for Newt Gingrich’s Contract With America in ’94. Somehow, we’ve confused personality with principle.

I encourage voters to find the ONE person that most supports those principles that are dearest to them, NOT just the person they think can win in November. When the American voter finally (and inevitably) decides to vote for principle over personality, there will be a return of power to the people like WE have NEVER witnessed. That’s when the lines will be so clear that party affiliation will not matter.

Stay engaged. Make them work for your vote. When you step up to that ballot box ONLY you (and the computer hacker) will know for whom you voted. Make it count and let the chips fall where they may.
