I would like to officially announce the end of an era – the two party system is over. Both have either become aristocrats or servants of them. No matter whose side you think is here to save you one thing is for certain – government will get bigger and more powerful. Under democrats it will grow for social re-engineering and redistribution. Under republicans it will grow to promote global empires, be the social police, and prop up corporations. While one side, man takes advantage of man – for the other side, it’s the other way around.
The new aristocracy is running both sides of the debate and no matter who seems to win, we keep getting screwed. Judging from the talking heads we are stuck in this paradigm – to judge from elections so are the voters. A new era is upon us ruled by the status quo and we are its willing servants. It is a democratic aristocracy, which uses governments, markets, and media to increase its power and wealth. Our only hope against it stands the fading concept of freedom. It is an idea from the past, and while considered outdated, its time is not over.
I have heard it said that America is in an economic crisis, I contend the problem is much deeper and we are in a political crisis. Will people continue to turn to government on either side of the aisle to solve our problems, or to ourselves to apply initiative, self sacrifice, self reliance, resourcefulness, and tenacity to restore that idea of freedom again?
Our children will live their lives based on ramifications of our choice – free or stuck in whatever level of aristocracy we pass on to them. While the message of fear is the next big crisis and how they can fix it, we must consider at what cost to our liberties. While to get ahead in aristocratic terms means to rise up within the system, the call of leadership must be to restore a system that is free. It is clear the era of aristocracy is now upon us… unless a new generation of self governing leaders arises.

Editor’s note: In other words, it is time for the “amateur” citizens to take control of the government back from the “professional” politicians. Remember, amateurs built the ark, and professionals built the Titanic.
