We tried to lay out the various predominant political philosophies in America in the American Political Ideologies page, using a couple of multi-column tables. The problem is that many professional politicos are adept at fuzzy language and obfuscation of position, and many not so professional candidates' actual positions are vague, so that they "bleed" into more than one column of those tables. Whether a candidate's political position is vague because of slick language or because of weak, indecisive or still developing formulations doesn't really matter much. If he can't state his position in crystal clear language right up front he should be dropped from consideration in favor of someone stronger.
The first thing we all need to recognize is the utter corruption of the Political Parties. They have become political entities unto themselves, existing to continue existing, and to grow, and to accumulate political power. Their main function is to raise funds to be very selectively doled out to the campaigns of members who support, not the Constitution, not the nation, not the voters, but the Party. The main Party agenda, of all Political Parties, is to grow the Party and quash resistance to Party growth, from within and without.
The original Democrat Party was born during the national formation, between the Declaration of Independence and the ratification of the Constitution. It emerged from the mostly Southern motivation to support the continuation of black slavery, against the "all men are created equal" clause in the Declaration. It has since morphed into what I call the Marxocrat Party.
The original Republican Party was born of the abolition of slavery movement, with ever increasing animosity against slavery after the "compromise" ratification, in which they argued the bitterly disputed "three fifths" of a person for black slaves into the Constitution, so that black slaves at least had some representation in Congress at that point. It has since morphed into what I call the Republicrat Party.
Both Parties have long outlived their original purposes for being. The Democrat Party secession from the Union failed. The Civil War is over. Slavery is long gone. The original reasons for the existence of the Parties no longer exists. So, why do the Parties still exist?
They exist to concentrate political power, and to use that political power and influence. That's it. The Parties have become powers unto themselves.
Here is George Washington's warning against the formation of this very threat - the formation and growth of Political Parties - taken from his farewell address:
It was reading these Party-condemning words of Washington that moved me to write Two Party Treason, Constitutional Absolutism, No Party America, and New Way American Politics. My concern is that neither of the two Parties, nor any other existing Party, shows any interest in any particular American principles of government.
Their primary and most important agendas of all Political Parties are, essentially, to:
Essentially, it's highly competitive big time show-biz. That describes the Primary political agenda goals, of all Political Parties. A truly serious if not fatal problem with the Party system involves the gigantic sums of money involved, and how money talks, and how most frequently, if not always, the one with the most money wins. The Party system has made it next to impossible for a good man, who might be an excellent candidate, to step up and buck the Party system.
But then, we also have the Secondary political agendas of the Parties to contend with.
Today's Marxocrat Party was originally the Democrat Party, which gave birth to the Confederacy, and then to the Segregation Forever movement, and then evolved into the Marxocrat Party we see today. Why Marxism? It was a natural move, because of Marxism's opposition to Capitalism in favor of (supposedly) Egalitarianism and the Utopian Ideal. An understanding of Capitalism is necessary to understand the natural movement of the Democrat Party into anti-Capitalism and the Marxocrat Party we see today. So what, exactly, is Capitalism?
Capitalism = the Free Market = Liberty + Private Property.
Very simple; nothing to it. Capitalism - the free market - just automatically comes into being whenever and wherever men are free, they can prosper by their own industry and diligence, they have the right to keep what they earn, and they are free to do commercial transactions with each other. Capitalism is a natural thing. The claim that Capitalism is an engineered and controlled system of man is a Marxist lie. In Marxism, Capitalism is a straw-villain target to be defeated, in favor of collective property and collective people, all belonging to a collective community, in a dreamed of utopian worker's paradise.
Quite impossible, of course, but that is Marxism's chief delusional dream, embraced by all of Marxism's idealistic, utopian dreamer, convinced Useful Idiots, who work to advance the banner of Marxism, not knowing that the real ultimate goal is absolute dictatorship. See the Anti-Capitalism Pages for all the Marxist misrepresentations of Capitalism, absolutely false, yet believed by elites all over the world, including even Pope Francis, and perhaps even some previous Popes.
Probably the best conditions for the natural advance of free market Capitalism ever devised by man were born of the "self evident" Truths proclaimed in the American Declaration of Independence, defined to be the four Natural Law human rights to equality, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
"Equality" meant that all men stand equal before the law; therefore, no man has an earthly ruler. What is required to make this true, is the establishment of law that says it, and that the law that establishes this equality is to be the ruler of all men. It requires the creation of a nation of laws, rather than a nation of men, in which all men are equally subject to the same fixed law.
"Life" meant that human life is held to be sacred and protected; thus, the unwarranted taking of innocent human life is forever forbidden.
"Liberty" meant that men were to be free to chose to travel or live wherever they may, pursue their own interests and be masters of their own destiny.
"Pursuit of Happiness" meant that men were able to prosper from the work of their own hands and to profit from their own industry. This translates into the ability to earn, acquire, accumulate and own private property.
These four original intentions of the Founders were concreted into law, by the Framers of the Constitution, in the Fifth Amendment of the Bill of Rights, as quoted below:
Well, the Democrats couldn't handle that; it meant that their slaves would have to be set free. They were further publicly humiliated in the debate over whether a black man was a human being, and then "negotiated" into admitting, at last, that he was, at least, three fifths of a human being.
You know the history, or you should know it. They lost the Civil War. They lost the Segregation Forever fight. And they seethed at their losses and humiliations. It lead to exactly what Washington warned about in the long quote above: Revenge.
The Democrat Party, rather than eventually reconciling and assimilating back into the Union, turned to hatred and vengefulness against the opposition. (I'm not talking about the ordinary Southern citizenry here, I'm talking about the politicos of the Democrat Party.) It may be argued that none of what was to follow would have followed if the two Parties simply went out of existence with the elimination of their very purposes for being, slavery being ended, and abolition no longer needed. But that is not what Parties do; they take on a life of their own, for their own sake. And the Democrat Party was out for revenge against the Republican Party.
Along came the elitist intellectual fad of Marxist Revolution, which was the revolutionary idea against - guess what - Capitalism. Against equality, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Marxism warped the right to equality to mean equality in material wealth, rather than equality in rights before the law. Global equality, in everything material. Pure egalitarianism. In accordance with Marx's dictum, "The theory of Communism may be summed up in one sentence: Abolish all private property." Everything becomes communal property. So long, Declaration; so long, Constitution; the Democrat Party became the Marxocrat Party of revenge.
All varieties of Marxists find a political home in the Marxocrat Party; all of them drive toward the eventual destruction of the Constitution, and the original idea of America. The major varieties are:
Marxist-Leninists, who organize and plan continuously to prepare the American ground for violent and bloody revolution.
Cultural Marxists, who work in formal education, upper academia, the sciences, journalism and the entertainment industry to actually delude the public, even from kindergarten, about all sorts of false apocalyptic threats to mankind, the environment and the globe, so that they will increasingly support an ever growing government and an ever shrinking liberty.
Anarchists, who are just dumber than dumb. Anarchists just want to move all of society into the Communist Utopian Worker's Paradise, right now, avoiding Socialism altogether, by just eliminating all law and all authority. And they believe that would work out fine.
See the Marxism Pages for elaborations on Marxist theory. No free or even partially free man with any common sense at all would willingly seek a Marxist government over an American government. If I had to use one and only one word to describe Marxism to a free man, that one single word would have to be: Nuts.
But, remember the driving motive that preceded the Democrat Party going Marxist in the first place: A hate-filled vengefulness. A mission of hate and revenge can drive a political Party to oppose its own nation. In this Party's case, it would not be the first time.
Republican Senator from Wisconsin Joe McCarthy saw the dangerous un-American activity involving Communist agents going on in government, military, entertainment and the news media, and tried to put a stop to it, in the now infamous 1954 McCarthy Hearings. It was too late. Cultural Marxism, at least, already controlled much of the Marxocrat Party, the news media and the entertainment industry. McCarthy was right, it was later proved, but his hearings were crushed and his reputation destroyed by the already Marxist news media. See the link for the details. "McCarthyism" became the popular label of the wild-eyed conspiracy theorist, with the aid of the Marxocrat Party, the Marxist-dominated news media and entertainment industry. And it still is.
After that political humiliation, the Republican Party went into a strictly defensive posture that it rarely ever came out of again, with the one notable exception being the Reagan Presidency. Nobody wanted to be called a McCarthyite. Heavens no.
So, even among those politicians who knew full well that Marxism was, in every regard, absolutely antithetical to the American Constitution, they "tolerated" the Marxism of the opposite Party, as just another political voice in the free and open political contest. After all, we have free speech, even if this is a movement out to destroy us. Let the people decide after hearing from both Parties.
This was exactly the same mistake made by Libertarians and "Social Issue" Liberals, who decided to ignore morality questions and stick to the economy and jobs. What they were ignoring was the advance of Cultural Marxism, which was more and more teaching American children and college students increasingly depraved sexual sins as "natural" and "normal" and even heroic. It is no longer under the radar. We now have homosexual marriage, established by unconstitutional action of the Supreme Court, as a direct result of falsehoods and delusions inculcated into society by the myriad agents of Cultural Marxism.
Young people think it's good that homosexuals are "out of the closet" and that all of this is "progress". And it is progress, but toward the end of the nation. Guess what? A lot of young people think the end of America might not be a bad idea.
That's what eventually happens when evil is not even resisted.
Any Republicrat candidate who promises to be bipartisan and to cooperate with the opposition to get things done in Washington should be anathematized and shunned, if not run out of town on a rail. Bipartisan cooperation with the Marxocrat Party is bipartisan cooperation in the national suicide of America.
The Parties are practically owned and operated by big money donors, who are the true drivers of the Party agendas. Party leadership of both Parties keep these relationships secret from the public. Interestingly, the biggest donors are Marxocrat donors, the richest politicians are Marxocrat politicians, the biggest entanglements between big banks and industries with government are all Marxocrat, and they're supposed to be the Party of the little guy, egalitarianism and the political demonizing of the Republicrats, as the Party of the rich. Maybe winding up there wouldn't be as bad as Communism. Maybe. Mussoliini's Fascism and Hitler's National Socialism didn't kill quite as many people as Communism, but they came close. See the Great Lies of Marxism page.
The Republicrats are not innocent of the same wrongdoing here. The Republicrat Party has as much interest in satisfying their donors as they have in bipartisan cooperation with the Marxocrats and the Obamunists. Neither Party is even looking at the Constitution. That's not on either Party's agenda.
Look for candidates for office who hate political Parties.
Forget the candidates who say they want to fix, or amend, or repeal and replace, or do it better, regarding any standing law, regulation, executive order or legal precedent that is clearly unconstitutional to begin with. Look for someone who will stand up and declare it to be unconstitutional, null and void, and move on. As spoken of in the recent Homo Marriage Surprise page. There is no reason in the world that such an obviously unconstitutional Court action as that cannot be simply nullified by declaration of a President or a Congress. Same thing with Obamacare. Same thing with lots of unconstitutional laws, and lots of unconstitutional, gigantic, growing, treasurel-sucking regulating bureaucracies. See the Fixing America pages and the Cut the Spending pages. All that's required is a pair of balls.
Look for candidates who will impeach the bastards. See the Treachery and Treason pages. Justices and judges, up and down the line, who have violated the Constitution as written or violated citizen constitutional rights in cases before them need to be impeached. Same thing with Senators and Congressmen who voted for obviously unconstitutional laws, such as Obamacare. Look for candidates who will use the Attorney General's office to vigorously go after judges, courts, attorneys and plaintiffs in favor of citizens whose Constitutional rights were violated by legal action and suffered loss. And who will use the Attorney General's office to support or initiate local legal action and/or local movements to oust lower jurisdiction, non-federal violators of Constitutional Rights from office and/or legal practice.
Look for candidates who will enforce immigration laws and border security laws, not fix them. They are not broken. The are unlawfully not being enforced. All the following should be done at the same time.
The longer the malicious Marxocrats and the wimpy bipartisan Republicrats whine about how there's too many, we can't round them all up, that would be inhumane, the more millions we will have to contend with eventually, or, alternatively, go out of existence as a sovereign nation.
They are coming from inferior cultures to a superior culture, or they wouldn't be coming here at all. They are bringing their inferior culture and inferior cultural values with them, and that is not doing American culture any good.
Look for candidates who will seek a Congressional declaration of war against Jihad. Recognize the incontrovertible fact that Jihad is an open, unrelenting, 1,400 year old declaration of war against the whole of the non-Islamic world. Forget the war on terror, or war on any named faction; it is Jihad, here and everywhere, that operates against civilization. Wherever and whenever jihad rises up, under whatever name (ISIS, Al Queda, etc.) attack it and destroy it with whatever military force is necessary.
Send military forces to proactively seek, find and destroy all practitioners of piracy, slave traders, kidnappers and property takers seeking ransom or tribute from nations, companies or families.
Permanently deny immigration and citizen application to Moslems. Remove all Moslems from American military service and government employment. That includes especially all the Moslem Brotherhood close advisors to Comrade Obama, peace be upon him. Cancel existing and deny applications for security clearances to Moslems. Issue non-reentry orders so that any American Moslem who leaves the country will be denied reentry.
Pass laws to Monitor Mosques with the intent of discovering the preaching of Jihad, an offense punishable by imprisonment followed by deportation, and the permanent closing of the Mosque. Disallow the building of any new Mosques.
The reason for these draconian measures is that Jihad is an integral part of Islam, mentioned 164 times in the Koran. Jihad springs from Islam and only from Islam. Jihad is the first word Palestinian babies speak. Any Moslem is subject at any time to be "radicalized" into becoming a Jihadist, through the Koran, through normal upbringing, through normal preaching, or through family and friends. Jihad is a normal part of normal Islamic culture.
Attack and destroy government leadership of nations openly declared to be Jihadist, such as Iran, and destroy their WMD facilities.
Get women out of combat and near combat roles, and get homosexuals, gangsters and Moslems out of military altogether.
Do not consider candidates who cannot even identify the enemy.
How many Republicrats, and how many Conservatives, and how many Libertarians do you suppose see nothing wrong with Marxist ideology in active American political contention for high office?
How many do you suppose see nothing wrong with large and growing Islamic enclaves all over America?
What could go wrong?

Praise and thanks be to God in the Most Blessed Trinity for His modern day prophets!
It seems like we are in a perfect storm with the devil stirring the pot.
Another factor running on parallel tracks of destruction of our Country has been the moral decay of our people and the silence of the pulpits and/or incorrect teaching a.k.a. dumbing down the masses.
July 1, 2015 The historical roots of dissent, from Vatican II to the Synod on the Family
ROME, July 1, 2015 (LifeSiteNews.com) -- The past helps us to understand the present. If we want to understand the causes of the current cultural and moral crisis, we need to go back at least half a century to the beginning of the 1960s.
This is long; worth reading all:
Keep fighting the good fight and sounding the alarm to wake up the people. Let us pray for a miracle. Lord have Mercy.

Thank you very much. Lifesite News is a great resource.
The best and most comprehensive exposition of Antonio Gramsci's "Cultural Marxism", the absolute antithesis of Christianity and the antithesis of America, but which is now infecting the Church, is:
TAKEDOWN. From Communists to Progressives, how the Left has sabotaged Family and Marriage; Paul Kengor, Ph.D. Exposing the radical movement to redefine family and marriage.
It's in the Reference page. It's hard to imagine that Marxism or Marxist ideas could even infect the Church hierarchy, but they have, and they are. That is the reality we must now confront and contend with, head on.

Thank you, Vic, for your reply and your very comprehensive reference page.
Yes, I see it. Many don't or don't want to know etc.

Charity in God's Truth and Justice,
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.

"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction.
