Gabriel Topor and I attended the No-Labels convention in NYC yesterday. What an event! The No Labels movement is a manifestation of modern Whig philosphy, no doubt in my military mind!
Somehow the concept of bipartisanship has been spun into something that is a social, or socio-political good. MWP would like all to really think about this for a moment. Think about what bipartisanship has truly effected, empirically, and then decide whether it is a public good.
If I put my "Whig Zen-see" X-ray goggles on, I seem to be pushed to the following conclusion:
Ladies and Gentlemen, as we oft reference "faux leadership", or the distinction between true leaders and followers, I thought we might coin a Whiggy phrase here that exemplifies our general view of The Hill - LEADERS IN NAME ONLY - LINO.
Candidly, the clear distinction between leaders and followers didn't hit me until I went through the leadership course in the Whig Academy.I could feel it viscerally, but it wasn't yet defined until then. It suddenly became painfully clear to me what true leadership is, and that we were surrounded by faux leadership or LINO's.
Each election there are some who want to change how we elect the President. Specifically, there are calls to do away with the Electoral College.
I believe the Electoral College is a valid and vital concept. What I disagree with is that the electoral votes are awarded on a "winner take all" basis per State.
This last election has shown the continuing trend in American politics to do away with the "melting pot" of America.
We saw ad after ad target specific groups of people in an attempt to convince them to vote as a whole and not give individual thought to a given issue. Two of the more blatant examples covered immigration and support for Israel.
I am reminded of two terms from chemistry that are often confused: "compound" and "mixture."
I would like to commend Mr. Anthony Haslage for his efforts in a campaign for Treasurer of the city of Lorain, Ohio.
Mr. Haslage, of the Modern Whigs in Ohio, ran for the Democratic nomination for the position, which was effectively the be-all and end-all as no other candidates have filed for the general election.
Mr. Haslage received 20% of the Democratic vote, which is notable for several reasons:
1) He ran against the incumbent candidate
This might not be "Whig information" per se, but I want to share an excellent
resource on the Natural Law, which, as our position on Church & State
Separation states, "The Constitution is steeped in natural law":
I wish everyone all the best.
Originally penned by Hawaiian_Whig_67 :
Although I to believe that Hawaii is in a better position as a member of the United States, the local community has a very strong case in which our government ignores.
23% of Polynesians live below the poverty level, High unemployment rate amongst Polynesians, High percentage of High School drop outs. Because of the international legality of the American actions, this is a very big issue which could determine the success/failure of the Modern Whig Party within Hawaii.
Greetings and salute fellow Vets,
