Lots Of American Voters Aren’t Wedded To Either Political Party, And May Boycott Both

17 11 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

I began as a Democrat in a devoutly-Republican, Southern California family, because of John F. Kennedy.  Indeed, I was in Los Angeles’ Coliseum when he gave his acceptance speech at the 1960 Democratic Convention, even though I was not old enough to vote.  Years later, I passed up a chance to return to a prestigious law firm in San Francisco because I thought service to my country was the right thing to do.[2]

I spent two years at the Pentagon as an Army officer assigned to the Defense Intelligence Agency, and then pounded the corridors of Capitol Hill, trying to find a job, which I did.  It was heady work, with some of the political giants of the times.[3]  But there was and is a seedy side to American politics, which equaled or surpassed what happened in Hollywood (or Los Angeles) where I grew up.[4]

When I left the U.S. Senate, I concluded that the Democrats were “evil” but smart, while the Republicans were “Neanderthals” and dumb.[5]  Hence, I became an Independent and have been one ever since.  The Kennedy men, I learned, were evil—with essentially no redeeming qualities.  And the Democrats have rigged elections, including JFK’s in 1960.[6]

They have targeted their Republican opponents unmercifully, including Richard Nixon with Watergate, Ronald Reagan with Iran Contra, and Donald Trump—who has been attacked from Day One of his quest for political office.  And the Republicans are too stupid or inept to stop them.  We have Brain Dead Joe Biden in the White House, with Willie Brown’s former ho Kamala Harris waiting in the wings for him to croak, yet the Republicans seem unwilling or impotent to jettison them.[7]

What both political parties don’t appreciate, much less fathom fully, is that Americans don’t need either political party.  Lots of us stopped voting for Democrats years ago; and as we see the “vested interests” in the GOP targeting Trump, it is very easy for us to abstain from voting altogether.  The problem is that by defaulting, the Democrats become the victors, in perpetuity.  Therein lies the rub.  Another factor is that the Democrats might have gotten crushed except for young voters who were swayed by the abortion issue, and tragically have supported Infanticide.[8]

Meanwhile, Brain Dead Joe takes his pathetic “victory lap” globally, conceding that China owns Taiwan, just as he ceded Afghanistan to the Taliban.[9]  The GOP needs to dump Mitch McConnell and Kevin McCarthy as leaders.  They are feckless at best.[10]  And never underestimate Donald Trump, nor discount the possibility that he will return to the presidency.  The always-despicable Democrats, the “vested interests” in the GOP, and their fellow travelers will try to convince you otherwise.[11]

“I also continue to support Trump. What the media has done to the man is criminal.”

At the very least, McCarthy must not stand in the way of investigations into the criminality of Joe and Hunter Biden, the AG Merrick Garland, FBI Director Christopher Wray and others.

While McConnell may hang on for a while, he too must be dumped.

Dump Brain Dead Joe, McCarthy, Pelosi and their ilk, and Republicans like Karl Rove who gave us the Iraq War—in which more than 5,000 Americans died and many more were maimed for life, and staggering amounts of money were wasted for nothing—and never trust any of them.

Christopher Wray’s Fate

Welldam from Los Angeles commented on MailOnline:

“We used to execute traitors like this. Now, the democrats protect them.”

See https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11441563/Wray-admits-left-hearing-vacation-government-jet-dodges-questions-Hunter-Biden.html?ito=twitter_share_comment_text#comments

How times have changed. Wray should spend the rest of his life at Guantanamo Bay, with Joe and Hunter Biden, AG Merrick Garland, and other traitors like them.

Excellent article! I agree wholeheartedly, as it reflects my own journey. I too began as a Democrat and consider myself to be an Independent as well.

Although this passage of scripture applies specifically to the rebellious nation of ancient Israel, I often think of this passage because it reveals a form of judgment that is brought upon a nation that turns its back on God:

“For, behold, the Lord, the Lord of hosts, doth take away from Jerusalem and from Judah the stay and the staff, the whole stay of bread, and the whole stay of water.

The mighty man, and the man of war, the judge, and the prophet, and the prudent, and the ancient,

The captain of fifty, and the honorable man, and the counsellor, and the cunning artificer, and the eloquent orator.

And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them.

And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbor: the child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honorable.” – Isaiah 3:1-5

IMO, in many ways, I think this describes our nation.

Yes, indeed, Ray. Godlessness has existed far too long. It’s time to take back our country!

Kevin McCarthy Must Be Dumped

See, e.g., https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11449581/Kevin-McCarthy-vows-kick-Ilhan-Omar-House-Foreign-Affairs-Committee-speaker.html (“Kevin McCarthy vows to kick Ilhan Omar OFF the House Foreign Affairs Committee as speaker”)

He’s pandering to Jewish voters, many or most of whom are Democrats — if not rabid Democrats. As always, he is pathetic.

The GOP Is Losing Elections Because They Are As Brain Dead And Corrupted As Joe Biden

U.S. Senator John Kennedy from Louisiana is a shining example of the feckless, brain dead Republicans in Congress. On Sean Hannity’s show, he praised Elon Musk, who has done nothing to restore the “suspended” accounts of targeted conservative Twitter users who have supported Donald Trump.

Also, Kennedy said that he believes FBI Director Christopher Wray should answer questions before Congress. More GOP sycobabble. Wray should be indicted, convicted and imprisoned.

Kennedy began as a despicable Democrat, and he seems like one today.

See, e.g., https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Kennedy_(Louisiana_politician)

Dump Kevin McCarthy, Or We will Dump The GOP

Sean Hannity and Newt Gingrich are fools. They can’t fathom why any Republican would vote against Kevin McCarthy for Speaker.

The answer is that we don’t like him, period. He is a slick California politician, and not “real” in the judgment of those of us who have followed him.

When I left the U.S. Senate, I concluded that the Democrats were “evil” but smart, while the Republicans were “Neanderthals” and dumb.

By pushing McCarthy, the GOP will lose lots of us who have voted for Republican candidates.

Sadly, even Laura Ingraham is trying to push McCarthy, arguably not realizing fully what an anathema that is for us.
