FIGHT OVER WHAT?
LITTLETON-“However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course
of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be
enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying
afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.” George Washington, Farewell Address,
September 17, 1796
What is the Presidency supposed to mean? The office of the President was started, and was traditionally looked
toward for the safeguarding of freedom, individual liberty, promote peace, and for an inspirational voice.
What has the Presidency become? The office of the Presidency has devolved into what is more akin to the
monarchy that it was supposed to replace. Instead of safeguarding freedom, individual liberty, and promoting
peace, each succeeding individual with few exceptions who has held the title have aided in the erosion, and
destruction of freedom, liberty, and robbing of the people their prosperity. They have started, and continued
endless wars, creating enemies out of people of the world that could be friends, and engage economically with.
Instead of being a voice of inspiration, it has become a superficial personality contest, and about who can lie
more abought “answering popular ends.” Once in power the newest figurehead continues the further usurpation
of the liberty of the people.
This contest of which side gets to control the unjust dominion of the seat of power in the Oval office has been a
huge help in sowing the seeds and fanning the flames of division and discord that we are living through today.
The Libertarian Party of Colorado encourages everyone starts to take President’s day week, and beyond to
reflect on what “WE THE PEOPLE” are looking for out of the office of the Presidency, and federal
government, and look beyond not just the most picturesque personalities, but also look to the messaging and the
commitment to actions of that messaging.
