For years, if not decades, when given the chance via `public surveys' - the Citizens have told of their utter disgust with EACH of the two parties that supposedly represent them. Consistently, the Republicans and the Democrats who run each of the bodies of government, routinely have support of under a third of the citizenship and sometimes even much less.
Meanwhile, while stuffing their pockets with the money of the Democraps and the Republinuts, the lamestream media would tell us all that it will be the `independents' - who would decide the elections - by picking between the two worthless candidates that represented the Jackass and the Elephant. Always acting like the parties are trying to coax some untamed middle America.
All at the sametime, the lamestream media would tell us all that should someone actually run with an NON Republinut or Democrap tag, that the voting for such `a third party' was a `wasted' vote (as if voting for something one hates isn't) - "after all the `Libertarians' never get more than 5-10% of the vote" - even if they usually are offered as an alternative on ballots.
Those `crazy' libertarians, who want the US Government out of wars in foreign countries; who want to stop the prison industry in it's tracks by de-criminalizing many activities by adults that the government pokes it's ugly head into, - and other `crazy' ideas - like having a limited government.
But, now, we have the Tea Party.
One has to wonder what would have happened to the dialogue in this country, IF the Libertarians had actually been given even the 5-10% of the `face time' on the MSM they clearly deserved for decades now. What if once a day or so you actually saw and heard a Libertarian interviewed; or god forbid, debating with one Republinut or Democrap - giving an ALTERNATIVE to the `standard' party line of the two worthless parties.
(Well, not worthless to the MSM, as you well know like every American, - as the advertising dollars of the political system is vital to their ultimate bottom line. Which results, of course, in the LSM `supporting' the politicians worst heart tugging `nightmares' - like The Drug War and Terrorism and such. The constant need for more police, for our `safety', of course. And so on and so on.)
What is supposed to happen, in an actual real free society (one not had in America) , with an actual freepress - the real independents who challenged the two parties would be given HUGE amounts of time as representatives of ideas NOT within the confinements of the rhetoric of the fat Elephant and the stubborn Jackass. An EAGLE view of independence. -------- You'll note the MSM's total lack of interest in folks like John Anderson John Anderson (Wikipedia) (for those too young, look up the election of 1980) and Ross Perot who challenged the two parties structures. Two candidates that before the media slam had support in the 25% plus range. Two candidates who you NEVER saw on the TV screen afterwards ----- like they didn't exist.
And, by ignoring Libertarians and Independents, the Lamestream media created the Tea Party Monster they deserve.
For years, the `liberal' side of the LSM has occasionally given the faintest of praise of occasional `Libertarian' views of a few conservatives, obviously Republicans - such as fighting for restricting government surveillance of citizens. Those few who would stand up for the people, folks like Ron Paul or even Bob Barr - while the LSM would remain silent on why Democraps wouldn't step forward. Indeed, many Republinuts often would attach themselves to having `Libertarian' principles - with power `liked' being closer to the people and futher from the Big Government. States and localities rather than the Feds.
Even the bloated liberal heads of most MSM recognized the above as a truth, - local is better.
But, the MSM, again the LSM (lamestream media) - ignored the small people in favor of the dollars from the politician clients. Anyways, remember, (to the LSM) the Libertarian candidates didn't have any dollars or skipped on their bills to the MSM. (Many politicians skip out on research bills and the like.) Dollars that represented a BROKE America, that the MSM, - via the parties, - seemed to not care less about.
And, because of the MSM's CONTINOUS IGNORING of ANY alternative views to the Republinuts and Democraps, it was about to become the birth parents of something even more dangerous than Ross Perot's angry crowd.
This crowd was NOT going to be ignored THIS time around - and hence, the Tea Party came into existence.
Really, TTP is nothing more than an updated version of Ross Perot's concerns and graphs in the 92 campaign. People who actually MEANT that they will REDUCE a budget - not just reduce the increase that was going to occur anyway. Single minded - as political movements need to start as.
Now, the LSM, could have ALL ALONG had Libertarians talking of reducing spending by having the government live up to doing ONLY it's obligations of the constitution - and such. But, the MSM is so in the pocket of their political cronies, that doing so was too dangerous to the stability of the political system itself. Ideas like LIMITING the government (the politicians, again, one of their very important big money clients) by allowing a third parties views AIR TIME - simply was NOT in their interest.
But, instead of having the Libertarian view of `limited government' and individual adult rights - one that is actually based on principals - the LSM gave us a one dimensional vision of the plurality of America's views --------- that the two party system is now worthless at moving the country. That when fewer than 25% of the adult population can be said to be in EITHER particular parties camp of ideas - that a NEW, better system is needed. Perhaps, god forbid, one with MORE than JUST Republinuts and Democraps.
But, we didn't get that, did we? We got `The Tea Party'. A clever simplification by the media. A party that would STILL support having troops and military presence worldwide (afterall, they formed in the Republicans). A party that has NO intention of taking on the MIC (military industrial complex) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Military_industrial_complex - of which, the USA spends 46% of all Military dollars in the world; dollars that we do not have, dollars all spent by the congress which is nearly 100% comprised of Democraps and Republinuts.
(So, again, to emphasis - BECAUSE THE LAMESTEAME MEDIA WOULDN'T LISTEN TO LIBERTARIAN VIEWS - WHO WOULD HAVE ATTACKED THE SPENDING BY ATTACKING THE MILITARY INVOLVMENT and dollars --- INSTEAD OF A LOGICAL way to attack our countries indebtness ---- instead of THAT --- we got the TEA PARTY. Thanks a lot you worthless F-ing media.)
The parties that most Americans view as near worthless.
But, are NOT worthless to our near worthless MSM. The LSM of all sides (laughable) - of the political spectrum that is dependent on them as advertisers (and you don't piss off advertisers BTW).
Instead, we get a Tea Party - that doesn't GET the idea that REAL Libertarians would want the END of the Drug War and all that political spending and on-going restriction of rights and policeifacation of our society. (For example, ATT using the SWAT team busting doors for advertising their public image in the Hey Marcel Ads.)
It's kinda funny really. The `liberal' side of the MSM probably would have LOVED for a political party to have arisen within the Democraps, for a - ultimate BUDGET, no more spending increases, Party - where the `Defense' budget was slashed to continue with the socialization of America.
But, they were too greedy to hold onto power for the mainstream Democraps; - only the Republinuts Teapartyers had the political courage to challenge the system as set up.
And, THAT is hardly going to get the deep defense cuts the Democraps would have favored. Or that the Lamestream slightly demofavored media would have favored.
But, why would the Republinuts of the Tea Party GIVE THAT AWAY (defense reduction) ? What would the Democraps offer in return for that non-starter? Correct - Barf Stew.
So, instead, the LSM have now created the image of Jackbooted Tea Folk, who simply will NOT entertain ideas of increased spending forever; while forcing the Democraps to do their bidding, (forcing Obama to cave, of course, on the debt ceiling `debate'.) providing smoke and mirror spending `decreases' with no new `taxes'....... And, leaving the MIC as forceful as ever.
So, by suppressing the actual politicians willing to say they are/were Libertarians in actual campaigns; by IGNORING, the fact that in RUN-off races that the candidates, in a real political system, would look for support of a third party Libertarian Party (who say got 7%) and would entertain some Libertarian ideas perhaps. The actual way change sometimes happens in `TWO' party systems. (BUT we have a ONE party system really.) That we would have a real discussion on issues not of concern to the republicans or democrats.
But, not in America. Our MSM, LSM, never requires such moves by the Republinuts or Democraps, NEVER HOLDS THEIR FEET TO THE FIRE - even when the balance of power is elsewhere like with the Libertarian voting block.
Why upset your advertisers? Right?
Never forget over the next year of political BS that you will endure about the Worthlessness of the Tea Party - that it was the creation of a Lamestream Media that has repressed political thought for DECADES - and it has come home to roost.
