Voting for Authoritarian Politicians

As it often happens, voters are given a choice between an authoritarian leader or a non-authoritarian representative. This difference is fundamental to the very fabric of America’s principles.

The US constitution doesn’t say we should elect leaders. That seems like a pretty shocking revelation to many people.  But, this country was not founded on authoritarianism, but on rebellion against such authoritarians.  The very nature of the US is to question and restrain authority.

When it comes time to vote, keep that in mind. If you want to change America’s core to be followers of strong leaders, then vote for the authoritarian, but know what you’re doing when you do so.

On the other hand, if you are interested in keeping America free from the tyranny of the oppressive authoritarian leaders,  vote accordingly.

Whichever way you vote, be sure you know the consequences of your actions. We were not founded on following strong leaders, but rather overthrowing them.

  1. Any time the GOP candidate accuses the Dem candidate of being soft or weak, the Dem always comes back as trying to look more authoritarian. The correct response is to take the opportunity to teach the voters that a strong authoritarian leader is against America’s principles. We don’t elect leaders but representatives.

    When the GOP candidates move further to the right as hard as that is to even imagine, the Dems move to the right to try to capture more of the ones left behind by the GOP (in the middle). This is wrong! The correct response is to stand strong on the issues they know to be right and let the middle see which side is which. Becoming more like the side we know to be wrong is not any way to encourage your voters to show up.

    The Democratic party has lost its way. It’s time to get back to our roots. Liberalism is what this country was founded on and progressive-ism is the way of the future.

  2. How many times have I heard, “I didn’t leave the GOP, the GOP left me?” Well, the same can be said of the Democratic party. They’ve gone so far to the right, a little each election, to try to catch the middle ground that they are now more conservative than the GOP of the 50s.

    Now, that’s sad. The Democratic party has left us and Bernie Sanders has been somewhat successful at bringing it back.

  3. I agree with the comment, the DNC is lost in the woods. Hillary better be careful not to stuff her campaign or her cabinet with corporatists or she’ll drive away her tenuous support.

  4. It’s a fitting dichotomy you set up. Are we Americans or are we whimps voting in someone to be our fathers? To make our decisions? To tell us what we need to do?
