Breaking the Parties should be Job One for anyone determined to return America to Constitutionalism.
Breaking the Parties would be a major step in breaking "The Club" of the Washington - New York high-society elitists, celebrities, socialites, crony-capitalists, CEOs, lobbyists, special interest groups and billionaires who actually own and drive both Political Parties from behind the political scenery.
Getting rid of our Political Parties would be relatively easy for anyone determined to do it, because Political Parties are already illegal and unconstitutional entities. All the political and government power the Parties wield is unauthorized by the Constitution, and illegal.
A Congress or a President, acting together or acting individually, could eliminate the Parties either by legislation, or by simple declaration. A President, a Congress, or both, could simply declare Political Parties to be unconstitutional, null and no part of government, from that date on, following the precedent established in Maybury v Madison.
If the Court can do it, so can the other two co-equal branches of government. The Constitution nowhere grants the Court, or any branch, any greater interpretive authority over the Constitution. The Constitution is written in plain English, and it stands on its own. The three branches of American government are subservient to the Constitution, not the other way round.
The Constitution provides the design of the American government and its full operating instructions. Article One Section Eight provides the limited and enumerated functions of our Constitutional government, and Political Parties are not among them. The Parties therefore have no legitimate and legal governmental authority to even exist, let alone exercise any government power at all.
The current brouhaha over Party Delegates in this primary election season highlights the mess the Parties have made of the American political process. The voters think - when they are allowed by the Parties to vote at all - that they are voting directly for a candidate. But they are not. Who they are voting for are local district or precinct Party Delegates, who will be the real voters in the primary election.
At the time of the citizen voting, the delegates may not even exist yet. They are chosen at state Party conventions, which may be and usually are held after the state primary. The Party picks the delegates. By a sort of universal rule across all states - which may be changed any time, because the Parties make the rules - the Party delegates, or most of them, are absolutely committed to vote for the candidate who won the primary, on the first ballot only.
After the first ballot, if no candidate won the required majority number, most if not all of the delegates are free to vote for whoever they want to vote for. It does not matter at all who the citizens voted for. The Party delegates alone vote to decide who the Party candidate will be.
And he can be anybody.
This is the way it has been done since the Parties just schmoozed their way in and took over by osmosis around the Civil War. It was never Constitutional. It has grown and grown until it has become the monster that it is, actually running America, and running her into the ground.
Party politicians owe their first allegiance to the Party, not the Constitution, not the citizenry and not America. Party agendas change over time, as shown in the Political Party Pages, and Party goals and agendas rarely if ever align with the American Constitution. In fact, the record shows that they oppose it.
So what happens after Parties are outlawed?
No more Primary elections. No more Party delegates. No more Party candidates. No more Party conventions. No more Party holders of power in either house of Congress. No more Party-run or Party-selected committees. No more Party-selected judges and Justices.
No more Parties.
All that will be left are the Constitution, the People and the Electors.
Rather than Political Parties holding power over their delegates, duly elected and representative state governments will be holding power over electors. The People, and the Electoral College, will decide who the next President is to be.
In accordance with the Constitution, for a change.
If deemed absolutely necessary to have a political convention at all, it would be one, big, national convention, rather than two or three or more individual Party conventions, followed by a general election. To me, none of that costly public hoopla is even necessary. All that's really needed is to do what the Constitution says to do.
It worked well before; that proves that it can work well again.
The American Constitution is tried and true.

How can you write this excellent article & still support Cruz who is doing what u are against. Turn off your radio & start reading the printed word. Neither party wants. Trump. WHY? They can not control him.
I know you're smarter than them. Prove it!

The value of the printed word, like that of the radio broadcast word, depends on the verity of the author of it. If printed words, by mere dint of being printed words, are of more value than spoken words, try these printed words:
That being said, if Trump wins the nomination, I will vote for him. I do not believe he intends or aims to do any harm to America, and doing harm to America is precisely the goal and intention of the opposing Communists. (I mean Marxocrats.)
Despite all the experts and all the pollsters, I believe either Trump or Cruz can beat Madam Hillary or anyone else from that camp, and beat her bad.
And then, they would face the opposition of both Parties, and we would have gridlock for the first time in many, many years.
If the Communists won, however, there would be no gridlock. The establishment Republicrats have amply demonstrated that they do not resist anything the Marxocrats do to us, or to our Constitution.

This is in response to two off-line discussions in which fellow Glenn Beck fans agreed with his position that a President Madam Hillary would experience total Congressional opposition to everything she wanted to do, and a President Trump would just behave as does Comrade Obama, peace be upon him, and get away with it.
Beck is wrong; the exact opposite is true.
Madam Hillary would be supported by her Party, and by ours, too. They have already proved it, over and over again. The Republcrats support amnesty; they support keeping our borders open to the point of non-existence; they support the rise of Islam in America; they support Obamacare; in point of fact, there is nothing the Marxocrats have done or want to do that the establishment Republicrat Party does not wholeheartedly support. I have no idea why Glenn Beck thinks all of that would change if Madam Hillary were elected President.
If The Donald were elected, both Parties would oppose him vigorously, because both Parties hate him. It is The Donald who would face gridlock, in everything he tried to do. Not Madam Hillary.
Indeed, they might even impeach The Donald on some pretext, and just look at what they have allowed Comrade Obama, peace be upon him, to get away with.
It's the Parties that are the problem. The Parties have to go.
If you want to build a completely independent and personally owned actual website, like this one, this is how you do it.
Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

Restoring Constitutional America Pages
If it isn't in Article One Section Eight, the federal government shouldn't be doing it. If it violates any part of the Constitution, especially the Bill Of Rights, the federal government shouldn't be doing it.
Breaking the Parties: Ending unconstitutional, illegal control of government. Political Parties were never Constitutional. Making American government more manageable, representative and Constitutional begins with breaking the Parties.
Breaking the Media: ending control and slanting of public political opinion. A return to American Constitutionalism and recognizing truth requires breaking the media's controlling relationship to American politics.
Breaking-Taxation: Ending all taxes on all Private Property, including Income. And if your income is not your private property, then, whose is it? Ending all unrepresentative, regulatory and unconstitutional taxes.
Breaking Regulation: Ending unconstitutional, unlegislated lawmaking. Breaking Regulation means shutting down unrepresentative and unconstitutional bureaucracies that make regulations with full force of law behind them.
Breaking Dissimilation: Cultural Evil masquerading as Assimilation. Breaking Dissimilation means maintaining Who We Are, as a Distinct People, in the face of Forced, Purposeful Immigration of Evil.
Breaking Obamacare: Eliminating Socialized Medicine once and for all. Breaking Obamacare and showing that neither Health Care nor Health Care Insurance are the Constitutional business of the federal government.
Breaking Public Education: Killing Tax-Paid Anti-American Indoctrination. Breaking Public Education at the federal level may be the only way to kill Common Core under all its aliases.
Breaking Anti-Constitution Culture Rot: Making America Good Again. America cannot be great again until she is good again, and becoming good again requires breaking anti-Constitution culture-rot.
Breaking Unions: Ending Marxism's intrusion into work place relationships. Breaking Unions means breaking the very reason Organized Labor was originally Organized: to provide a path to violent revolution.
Breaking Marxism: Excising America's destructive social parasite. Breaking Marxism will be a tougher job than Breaking Islam, because "Cultural Marxism" is now interwoven into our national cultural fabric.
Breaking Islam: Getting Islam out of America, and making war on Jihad. Constitutional survival demands breaking Islam and breaking Marxism in America, and opposing their progress elsewhere in the world.
Breaking Voter Fraud: Ending Alien, Unidentified and Domestic Enemy Voting. The whole goal of open borders, amnesty, opposing voter-ID and early voting is to defraud the system, defeat the Constitution and take over America.
Repairing Defense: Undoing the Obamunist - Marxocrat Party's damage. Repairing Defense is an absolute requirement for American military before any serious military action.
Breaking The UN: De-funding a Globalist, Dependent-Upon-Us Mortal Enemy. The UN is now a Globalist, predominantly Marxist and Moslem, anti-American and anti-sovereignty, corrupt, criminal enterprise. It needs to be broken.
Breaking The FED: Repealing the 1913 Federal Reserve Act to Restore Treasury. Getting America's Currency and Treasure back under America's government requires breaking the FED.
Breaking The Drug Lords: Ending the Drug War by Killing the Black Market. If we are ever to return to being a Constitutional Republic, we must realize that drugs are not covered by the Constitution, and end the Business by killing the Market.
Breaking Globalism: The anti-sovereignty dream of borderless hodgepodge. Globalism: the New Communism. Anti-nation chaos dressed up as Utopia. A phony ideology so stupid it makes my feet hurt.
Breaking Abortion: Rescuing American Civilization from Utter Barbarity. Breaking Abortion is the first step in restoring the Constitution to its rightful place as the Supreme Law of the Land.
Breaking Homo Marriage: What the hell was the Court thinking? Breaking Homo Marriage, as one step among many in getting our three co-equal branches of federal government back into their separate and strictly limited individual Constitutional corners.
Breaking Secularism: Our Unconstitutional "Separation of Church and State". Restoring religious freedom requires breaking secularism, breaking Unconstitutional Political Parties and restoring our original Judaeo-Christian National Ethos.
Breaking Gun Control: Re-establishing Constitutional Citizen Security. Breaking Gun Control means declaring related unconstitutional gun laws to be null and void, because they violate the Second Amendment.
Breaking Chaos: Restoring Order in the face of Evil Revolution. Proactively breaking chaos means re-institutionalizing Truth, through proper fear of the Lord.
Breaking Faux Civil Rights: If it's not Constitutional it's not a Civil Right. If they are not in the Natural Law and not in the Constitution, then they are not "Civil Rights" and they may not be addressed in Federal Law.
Breaking Heterodoxy: Priests can either restore orthodoxy, or they cannot. All the other "Breaking" pages have to do with the Constitution; this one has to do with the return to Roman Catholic Orthodoxy, which leads the way in restoring American cultural morality.

Consequences of Breaking the System and Restoring the Constitution. Assessing the good, bad and ugly consequences of breaking the system of political corruption and returning America to Constitutional Rule.

Another Marxist "Catholic Spring"? Yawn. So what else is new? Breaking News: A Catholic Springtime of Revolution. Well, ho hum, heavy sigh and here we go again.
Political Parties = Political Denominationalism = Diversity in Patriotism. Denominationalism varies Revealed Truth; Political Parties vary Constitutional Meaning.
Evil Unmasked: Ryan and the boys openly side with America's enemies. If they won't support their own candidate in a two-person race, which candidate does that leave unopposed?
Invincible Ignorance my ass. It's invincible lawlessness running amuck. Government, academia, journalism and entertainment, all working together as one big criminal enterprise.
The Great Global Deception: "Death of a thousand cuts" applied to Civilization. The Global Deception is Machiavellian-ism applied by inches, in which the "Revolution" never quite comes, because the Target Institution destroys itself.

Stupid Intellectuals: The conservative political sophist circular firing squad. The stupid "intellectuals" in the establishment who just keep shooting themselves.

"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
