Let’s Get This Freedom Party Started

The political two party systems in America have failed us. We are a long way from the original Republican and Democratic parties of our founding fathers, or their successors who postured for political gain. Oh that we could go back to the days of George Washington the first president who did not belong to a political party!

I’m also not a big fan of Wikipedia because it can be manipulated easily by just about anyone however I want to examine American presidents and their political party affiliations to get a picture of how we got here from there?

As you can see by this listing of Presidents, their term and political party affiliation our party system has been evolving for well over 240 years. When you look at them what do you know or remember of their accomplishments? Does anything really stand out? Since its inception our nation has been in a constant state of war to the point that we hardly flinch or pay attention unless we are directly affected.

During my military service I was not overly concerned with political parties but when I voted it was as a Republican. After leaving military service I didn’t see any real benefit for being a Republican after Reagan left office. What I began seeing was a lethargic Republican Party not really doing what they said they would do. I began to feel disenfranchised but would not bend to the other side. I considered registering as unaffiliated up until the 2016 election when Donald Trump ran and won the presidency.

What I saw in Trump was a resurgence of pride in America which he brought back into the Republican Party by the sheer force of his personality yet throughout the past 4 years I have seen a number of Republicans being outed as Rhino’s (Republicans in name only) or showing outright resistance to Trump as a threat to their continued existence in political office openly shared by both Republican and Democratic Party members. Rather than getting on board in an effort to make America great again they focused the bulk of their time resisting and subverting or sabotaging Trump’s and by default their own agenda. One of the early critics of Donald Trump was and independent member of Congress named Rand Paul who got behind the president for the good of America, though he had opposed the manner and initially Trump’s agenda.

At the time of this writing the US has endured one of the most contested presidential elections in our lifetime and in American history. It is a pivotal time for the nation and a time to take an introspective look at our nation’s political future. I see political corruption in both major political parties that simply cannot be swept under the rug any longer. There must be major political reforms for the continued existence of our nation. What I propose is the formation of a new political party that American patriots can get behind.

May I suggest the formation of the Freedom Party where patriots to fully support and defend the Constitution of the United States against ALL enemies both foreign and domestic taking the best qualities of both Democrats and Republicans without the political squabbles or built in hierarchy of either party. I have no idea how to take this idea into fruition and formally form this new political party, but I’m sure there is someone who will know how to get it done. – I am the Real Truckmaster!
