    In the absence of rooted in right conviction moral authority, pragmatism ruinously prevails.

    In this morally impoverished day, statesmanship is virtually unknown.

    The transformation from a republican form of federated government into a nationalist socialist democracy has redefined Americanism itself from an association of self-determining freemen/freewomen into worshipers of national politicians who will render us aid from our desperate and failing lives. Who to vote for? It doesn't matter -- the game is already rigged; the whole thing is a charade and a distraction from what is really happening. A Libertarian is not a party man, so in a game of 'the majority rules,' he doesn't have a chance. In a fascist democracy, the concepts of liberty and personal responsibility are but stumbling blocks, not staircases. Every effort is made to tear down the individual, and transfer his power to a 'competent authority.' It is the same from both sides of the aisle -- in a fixed game, the real opposition to fascism doesn't even get to play.
