The Twins

      First off, I want you to know that the following images were modified by me. They are not original. I received the original image from a blogger that honestly some would consider a liberal Democrat as well as the one who actually designed the original image. I just changed some text and photo-shopped in another image. I merely believe another perspective is required for these images to be both more accurate and fair. Why?

      It seems like there are no true political debates anymore. They are mostly arguments. To have an argument, people need to argue. Arguing seems to be the norm among US, WE the people.

    WE rarely discuss – WE argue with one another. WE don’t converse – WE talk at or behind each other’s backs. WE don’t critique –  WE criticize. WE don’t edify – WE condemn. WE don’t solve problems – WE complain. WE are not responsible – WE demand no accountability. WE do not confront – WE do not want to offend. WE call light dark and dark light – WE  do not believe in right or wrong. WE believe in whatever WE decide is right and wrong – or whatever one can get away with. WE do not work for and expect results – WE demand to be provided for. WE do not vote – WE think WE choose to replace one, for another. WE do not choose – OUR choices are made for US.

      If WE are sick and tired of the whole thing and don’t try to do anything about this, what WE do is, WE allow this to keep doing US, WE the People.

      WE rarely take responsibility for anything, WE blame others for all our problems. WE have a dominate two-party political ‘system’ with a whole cast of characters WE think or believe WE can choose from and blame.

      WE have two dominate brands, WE think or believe WE need to further and more clearly brand and blame. It seems that one cannot mention one or the other party without criticizing, condemning and complaining about the other. It seems that in order to puff up the one, WE need to put down the other. And in order to be pro-anything, don’t you have to be anti-something? Instead of  making a point, WE must point fingers. Instead of building up, WE must knock down. Instead of  taking positions and communicating them, WE must put others in their place. Yep, this is just good old-fashioned-grade-school-name-calling. WE didn’t like it as kids and WE don’t like it now. But WE also know it is effective and keep allowing it to continue. Here’s two examples:

      Republicans have been referred to as the RePIGlicans. OK, but to be fair, let US also brand the Democrats with a name like the DEMONcrats. Let’s look NOT at how different they are, but how similar they really are:

And of course, there are many names and adjectives WE could use for these casts of characters. Hmmmm?

Changes I made to this image: Republican was replaced with ‘RePIGlican’ and ruining was replaced with ‘running’

      To be fair, what about the other party?

And of course, there are many names and adjectives WE could use for these casts of characters. Hmmmm?

Changes I made to this image: Republican was replaced with ‘DEMONcrat, ruining was replaced with ‘running,‘  the word “from” was dropped (“from running” to just “running”and the image on the bottom left corner has been photo-shopped in.

      OH, what about the ABC-123-Coffee-Tea-Anything-But-Thee Independent Parties? OH those independents figured it all out. It’s about choice. It’s  about the freedom to choose. Yep, it’s most likely the independents that will decide most elections, for one or the other of the same dominate two-party system! So much for choice and the freedom to choose huh? Freedom to choose what? Freedom to choose the RePIGlicans or the DEMONcrats?

      But when you think about it, aren’t they all just twins? Do you recall the movie ‘Forrest Gump?’ Well, Forest often quoted his mother’s rules for life. One of these rules was –

“Stupid is, as stupid does!”

Forest Gump

      Did you know that Thomas Jefferson, in 1792, as then secretary of state, formed a party to oppose the unpopular elitists called the Federalists? Did you know this party was called, the Democratic-Republican Party? Well, they divided long ago and have been dividing ever since. They are still dividing. To divide something, something had to, at one time or another, have been together. Yep, this dominate two-party system is really just one party that divided. They are really just, The Twins. 

Identical or Fraternal, they’re still – ‘The Twins’

      Sure, each party desires to either maintain or re-gain its power, influence and control and of this the twins are in total agreement. But over what – over whom do they divide? I dunno,’ maybe it’s US, WE the People? What have you ever heard or read about division? Does anything like – “A house (or a nation) divided against itself cannot stand,” ring any bells?

      But aren’t we supposed to be the – ‘WE the People?’ Aren’t WE supposed to be united? Over what could WE – should WE be united? I dunno,’ maybe over –  Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness?  

E pluribus unum 

one out of many

      Well, what are WE the People gonna’ do about it? What can WE the people do about it? What are you, 1 of WE the People gonna’ do about it? What can you, 1 of WE the people do about it? What am I, 1 of WE the People gonna’ do about it? What can I, 1 of WE the people do about it?

      What I did is wrote about it. What you can do is read about out. What WE the People can do is RESET Our Republic –


Just I-Magine,



  1. Just when I think there is no hope for the apathy in the US. Just when I think they have beat us. I read something like this. I emailed my representatives, evidently many did, because;
    Minutes ago, the U.S. House voted to pass the Audit the Fed bill!
    For more information, and to find out how your representative voted, be sure to check
    Thanks for your help to achieve this historic victory!
    Only a few years ago, few would have believed that two thirds of the U.S. House would support a complete audit of the Federal Reserve.
    It’s time to further shock the establishment by carrying our momentum over into the Senate.
    And that’s where Audit the Fed faces its toughest test yet.
    Ben Bernanke and his bankster pals know they can count on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and their other allies to do everything in their power to stop our transparency effort.
    With your support today, we can unleash a grassroots tidal wave of action and show these “Wall Street Senators” that who they really should be worried about serving is their constituents – instead of providing cover to the Fed’s destruction of our money and economy. Wow.
    Now Im going to email/call my senators, how about you?
