I had a number of thoughts the night President Trump was elected. I hoped and prayed the campaign was a shtick and he would surprise me by being a much better man while holding office.
The next thought I had was that if that failed(which I presumed it would) that a strong primary challenge would be undertaken in '20
And finally I feared that the conservative movement would be set back decades by his presidency. And by that I dont mean to where it was decades ago, by its nature that would be a good thing in my mind.
But rather that for decades to come no one would dare be labeled conservative

Every single election cycle good, honest, humble #Americans whisper that they believe the #Republicrat monopoly(sometimes stylized #TheDuopoly) is detrimental to America and that things need to change.
"We need more options' they say. 'We need more strong parties than just these two' 'We need independents holding state and federal offices' etc. etc. etc. These self same brothers and sisters of mine always conclude to the contrary though.
And rarely is it the 'a vote for a third party is wasted' cop out. These are brave patriots. The lie they often succumb to is the 'THIS ELECTION IS TOO IMPORTANT' 'NEXT TIME' "IF WE DONT STOP (insert appropriate red or blue team player here) THEN AMERICA IS LOST'

It is time that we as #Americans take a long hard look in the mirror. The #Republicrat #duopoly has and is failing us. How long do we suffer oppression voluntarily under their thumb? Have we no self respect? No sense of self worth?
If we vote lesser evil over and over and are continually failed by those sworn to represent us do we continue to vote in the same way or do we 'throw off such government' and 'alter or abolish it, and to institute new Government'?
There are a number of ways we could 'institute new government' we could do it through bloody coup, a civil war... These are ugly and profane to American ideals. We could however vote for someone from a party that is not currently represented in the federal government.

We as #Americans are facing down a terrible and destructive enemy. An enemy that knows no bounds, plays by no rules and is concerned only with driving a wedge into the staggering partisan divide in the #USA
That enemy is the @GOP @TheDemocrats #Republicrat #Duopoly
'But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. '
The yoke our founding fathers threw off was I do believe a lighter yoke than we Americans bear today. It was for all its weight a yoke forced upon them. Today we bear a yoke we have been manipulated into volunteering for.

I must plead with my fellow American brothers and sister to not cast a single vote ever out of fear.
This is how we ended up with oppressive Republicrat monopoly we face today.
I saw today in the comments section of an article about @justinamash someone said 'Dont split the anti-Trump vote' in regards to the prospect of an Amash run for the presidency.
This must end! We cannot continue voting in fear! People have asked me why I would waste a vote on a cadidate who cannot win. My vote is not wasted, it was cast in good conscience.

'You have spent the last two years failing to do your job, which is to directly represent the popular will of your constituents.' - Anna Timmer at townhall 5/28/19
@justinamash responded: "My job is to uphold the Constitution."
Lets discuss this...
In a @YouTube vid Ms Timmer cites Encyclopedia Britannica 'The House of Reps shares equal responsibility for lawmaking with the U.S. Sen. As conceived by the framers of the Constitution, the House was to represent the popular will, and its members were to be directly elected.'
There is some truth to the above statement. The real question here is who is right and how is that 'job' executed properly and in good faith?
