“ Duvergers Law” - Why you should not support a 3rd party.

I usually don't copy and paste but I thought this too important not to share. It is from Frank Anderson one of the founders of I-caucus a national group you need to be a part of. Check them out here. I-Caucus


Remember, not a single founding father wanted political parties, yet we saw 4 of the founders - John Adams, Alexander Hamilton,  Thomas Jefferson and James Madison - lead the  development of 2 parties into existence before Washington even completed his  first term.

Please Note: Those 4 founding fathers all wanted NO parties, but they immediately developed TWO parties...but not 3 or more parties.

Think about that:  Why would that be?  They wanted NO  parties...they could have set up as many parties as they wanted to...but they ended  up with just two.

Just like today...hmmm... Why would that be?

It’s because of “ Duvergers Law”

Bottom line: Whenever "50% of the vote plus 1 more" wins EVERYTHING, people will eventually coalesce around 2 parties  even when they DON'T want to do’s "Duvergers Law" and it’s almost as unchangeable as gravity.

Does anyone here think we are collectively or individually smarter than Adams, Hamilton, Jefferson, or Madison?

No offense to anyone here, but I sure don't think so....and if these 4 founding fathers couldn’t figure out how to overcome “Duverger’s Law”  then I PROMISE you that no one in 2010 is going to be able to do so.

HOWEVER...we proved in 2008 that we CAN act as a caucus within the 2 existing parties, and we CAN root out the compromised incumbents  from WITHIN the party...and we CAN take back control of the party from the  RINO's.

We will do it in 2010 all over the country because of all of our members just like you.Are you saying that if YOU decided to run in a Republican primary,  and we got behind you and we helped ELECT you and sent you to Washington...are  you telling me you would somehow turn into someone who would be un-constitutional and fiscally irresponsible just because you won as a  Republican or a Democrat?

Of course not. You would be as principled as you are right principled as Jason Chaffetz is who we PROVED we could help elect in  2008, not as an independent candidate, but as a Republican and now he is in Washington and he is NOT acting like a RINO...he is the most principled elected official sent to Washington in years.

Well, that’s what we’re doing here...we’re finding very good principled 3rd party candidates just like you...and we’re going to help them win in the primaries and we’re going to send them to Washington as Republicans or Democrats ( we don’t care which, because we don’t care what party someone belongs to) where they can actually be constitutional and be fiscally responsible.

Meanwhile, those who insist on running as independent candidates and refuse to get serious about actually winning will all draw 2% to 3% of the vote (give or take 2 %) and be sitting in their living rooms in 2011 not doing themselves or the nation any good.

Why would you choose to limit yourself like that when you can win instead? 

The Founding Fathers couldnt help a 3rd party candidate win. I-caucus can not help a 3rd party candidate win. YOU cannot help any 3rd party candidates win.

Do you want more incumbents like Ron Paul, Jason Chaffetz, and Jim DeMint? Then welcome, we're going to accomplish just that.

2009 Person(s) of the Year!

Mostly ignored by the main stream media. Rebuked and belittled by our servants in office.

This decision was not only easy but unanimous!(judged by just me!) The fire has been rekindled and we will not go away.

"John Adams wrote Thomas Jefferson in August of 1815 that the American Revolution was not a war for independence, but instead a revolution in the minds and opinions of the people, which was effected prior to any hostilities of the war. The war was merely a consequence of this change in public opinion."

Welcome to the NEW REVOLUTION!!!

Where is your line in the sand?

Over the last many weeks, I have had to wonder... when is enough, enough? When does the stench from the nation's 'CRAPITOL' ( even in an epic snow storm) get so bad that we can't take it anymore? Where is that point for you?  What do you think will have to happen to convince patriots that this isn't politics, but an out right attack on our very existence?  My opinion... we have domestic enemies that have not only stepped over 'my line' but they have picked up a handful of sand and have thrown it in our face. Not all terrorists wear explosive backpacks and speak arabic. Some wear suits and have titles like congressman, senator... and some even answer as mr. president.

"The very purpose of a Bill of Rights was to withdraw certain subjects from the vicissitudes of political controversy, to place them beyond the reach of majorities and officials and to establish them as legal principles to be applied by the courts. One's right to life, liberty, and property, to free speech, a free press, freedom of worship and assembly, and other fundamental rights may not be submitted to vote; they depend on the outcome of no elections."
Robert H. Jackson, US Supreme Court Justice

December 15, 1791 was the day that set this country apart. The world up to that point had various forms of republics through the ages. Most failed at the hands of corrupt leadership and an immoral people.  Our republic was different. Ours was written to try and avoid these perils by limiting the rights and powers OF government and NOT the people. And when we added to our Constitution on this date... the Bill of Rights, we became and we secured ourselves as a country of "Freemen"INALIENABLE RIGHTS! Rights that belong to us and NOT granted by the will of men! (Or that can be taken away)

Today... are they still rights... or just mere privileges? Or worse yet... are they just words written by men from an era long since past with no present meaning? Our leadership of BOTH parties treat them as nothing more than an inconvenience. In every word they speak, in every action they take, they circumvent the rights of the people. And the people today allow it.  Because few know any different.

Until NOW!

For rights to be RIGHTS, they have to be exercised. Permission is granted to subjects. Freemen need permission from no man or power for the these rights. To restrict them is tyranny. To restrict them is tyranny!

The significant problems we have cannot be solved at the same level of thinking with which we created them. Albert Einstein

It's time to STOP  being sheep. WE ARE AMERICANS!  No longer will we coward to those who represent us... they do NOT rule over us. We have no earthly king to bow before. NONE!

Today, take the time to read or re-read our Bill of Rights. Ponder on the words and see what has been stolen from us. And at the same time take a vow, with me, to do all we can to reclaim them for ourselves and our kids. We've allowed them to be squandered...  but by God and with His help, may each year from now, on this date, December 15lets celebrate our RIGHTS as Americans, rather than mourn our loss as servants!

Fight! Dammit.... FIGHT!!!

“It does not take a majority to prevail… but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.” –Sam Adams

Unlike the house, the senate gives favor  to the minority to hold up legislation it deems worrisome. YET NOT ONE REPUBLICAN HAS STOOD UP AND YELLED "I OBJECT!" TO  ANYTHING THAT IS IS HAPPENING. From new debt ceilings to progressive health care... nothing... NOTHING! Just bitching on FOX. Nothing where it matters. Just a bunch of castrated bastards. Hannity busts our chops  every time some among us say there is no difference between the two parties. In a way he is right. These present rinos are worse!

I want to fight. FIGHT! NO HOLDS BARRED. They are thieves... every last one. If they won't... we'll take it back.

I'll bring the tar, you bring the feathers.

John Adams the movie

I'm about 2/3 of the way through this mini series. At first I was skeptical as it was produced by HBO. But I have to say that so far... I am enjoying it a great deal.

Sacrifice is something that is used so broadly today that it has very little meaning and honor to it. What do we really sacrifice anyways? Time? Position? Money? Security? Life?  Some really do. Those we rarely hear about. But the vocal self proclaimed ones thump their chests and cry, "hey look at the sacrifice I've made for the country... I do all this for you, I'm your senator".  Or this..."I gave up my $200k law career to be a community organizer and help the poor and distraugt." Disregard the fact that his household income increased somehow. Oh I digress...


In the movie, Adams was in France at a dinner where he was being made fun of for working so hard in the fight for his new country. He was asked if he ever took time away from that boring stuff to study important things like art or music. His reply really made me pause and put his world, his fight into today's context. His said after a long pause and in a quiet tone but a strong fixed look in his eyes...

"I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy. My sons ought to study mathematics and philosophy, geography, natural history, naval architecture, navigation, commerce and agriculture in order to give their children a right to study painting, poetry, music, architecture, statuary, tapestry, and porcelain."


 Many of us right now have this hunger for studying the history of our founders and the construction of our constitution. About the foundations that made this country great. For the role God had and needs to have in it. We are being drawn into things we had little desire of just a few years ago. We had lives we were busy with. But now... it's almost an innate feeling we are experiencing... really no different than our bodies craving for protein after a week of salads. But now it's in our souls. It's almost as if we who call ourselves freemen, by instinct, know, we must prepare for something.

And that something is not good.

Please, feed your hunger.
