A Message to Political Partisans...A message to Democrats, Republicans, 'Third' Parties, the Tea Party...
To pass or defeat legislation in the Senate, an absolute minimum of 51 Senators (out of 100) votes are required. To pass or defeat legislation in the House of Representatives, an absolute minimum of 218 Representatives (out of 435) votes are required.
All 5 of the mega-corporations that own all mass media are, in turn, owned by the Financial Elite. The Financial Elite also control, by virtue of both political clout and "monetary alignment", both of the two dominant political parties. The chance that a 'third' party could place even one individual in Congress is exceedingly small. The chance that a third party could gain enough seats in both houses of Congress to ever have a chance at passing a single bill are beyond infinitesimally small. With zero mass media support (and in fact with complete mass media opposition), and without the political clout and money of the Financial Elite, no one but the two dominant political parties will ever have a chance to influence legislation in the United States Congress.
If you support the idea of 'third' parties becoming a voice in governance, this reality is devastating (for realists), and over time, exhausts the enthusiasm of even the most hopeful. The odds of getting a handful of any third party's candidates elected, simultaneously, are astronomical, and even then, the voice of that party would be but a whisper, drowned-out by the two dominant parties. Because of the historical precedent, and because the money is already aligned with these two dominant parties, the only real chance that the voices of "others" will ever be heard is if the entire partisan paradigm is dismantled. The Reset Button provides the first real opportunity to dismantle the partisan paradigm.
If you identify as a Republican Party supporter, you must be enraged watching the Financial Elite fleece the country, using bailouts as 'elite corporate socialism' - money funneled out of the US government and into the vaults of international bankers. The bankers are just getting warmed up, and the individuals sitting in Congress, the ones you entrusted to uphold conservative principles, have absolutely no intention whatsoever of double-crossing their benefactors: the international bankers and their corporate empires. On the surface, it may appear that the Republican Party holds the most seats in Congress, but the stark reality - if you are awake - is that the Financial Elite controls those seats, not the Republican Party. The ideals that brought you to the Republican Party have disappeared, leaving hollow rhetoric and outright lies.
You've been bamboozled and your party has been conquered by the Financial Elite. As long as the phony 2-party structure exists, and belongs to them, your values will never matter. In fact, it doesn't even matter who you vote for - you won't win. The winners are selected by the Financial Elite. The winners are selected based on their guaranteed loyalty to the Financial Elite - not to the Republican Party, and certainly not to you. It isn't magic, and it is actually (currently) legal for the Financial Elite to literally pre-select both the Democratic and the Republican candidates to face off (they control both parties.) Then, to make their final selection, they simply funnel extra money to the one they want to win. 94% of the time, the candidate that spends the most wins. It's not rocket science. The Reset Button offers the opportunity to disintegrate the partisan paradigm, take away the control of elections from the Financial Elite - and will allow you the ability to select candidates that best match your ethics and morals and values and ideals. I have some friends and family members that identify as supporting and voting Republican, and these are people of high integrity and character who I am sure would prefer to select candidates based on their real attributes - rather than simply because the Financial Elite have pre-selected them to wear the "R" button.
If you identify as a Democratic Party supporter, you must be enraged watching the Financial Elite fleece the country, using bailouts as 'elite corporate socialism' - money funneled out of the US government and into the vaults of international bankers. (Yes, this is probably the same whether you are a Democrat or a Republican. Most everything written above applies equally to the Democratic Party. The differences are the number of seats held that are supposed to be Democrats but are really held by the Financial Elite, and hey, it feels cool to have a glib, articulate - even eloquent - and obviously sharp mind in the White House for a change of pace.)
If you are not honest enough to admit that Obama has acquiesced to the will of the Financial Elite, and has maintained or expanded everything that the Financial Elite ordered the previous White House occupants to do, well, I just don't know what else to say. The drums of permanent war - support for the military industrial complex, the biggest money-maker for the Financial Elite - beat on, and loudly. Torture, indefinite detainment, and extra-judicial killing of anyone, any citizen of any country including the US, anywhere on Earth now including the US, is still the order of the day - and has expanded under Obama. The flow of money away from American citizens into the vaults of international bankers is mind numbing. The Constitution and especially the Bill of Rights has been trampled, the current White House said it would embrace transparency but has gone after whistle-blowers (yes, prosecuting rather than applauding whistle-blowers!) Newer bills (NDAA and HR347), further stripping away citizen rights, have been embraced by this White House. Even the recent Supreme Court decision to allow full strip-searches of anyone arrested - even for traffic tickets - was applauded by Obama. The sad truth of the matter is that we are experiencing the will of the Financial Elite, not one or the other political party. That is why what most Democrats had thought was going to be a stark contrast (Obama policies versus Bush policies) is actually the same - proof that the Financial Elite are running the show, not one of the two political parties.
You've been hoodwinked and your party has been hijacked by the Financial Elite. As long as the phony 2-party structure exists, and belongs to them, your values will never matter. In fact, it doesn't even matter who you vote for - you won't win. The winners are selected by the Financial Elite. The winners are selected based on their guaranteed loyalty to the Financial Elite - not to the Democratic Party, and certainly not to you.
The Reset Button offers the opportunity to disintegrate the partisan paradigm, take away the control of elections from the Financial Elite - and will allow you the ability to select candidates that best match your ethics and morals and values and ideals. I have some friends and family members that identify as supporting and voting Democratic, and these are people of high integrity and character who I am sure would prefer to select candidates based on their real attributes - rather than simply because the Financial Elite have pre-selected them to wear the "D" button. I myself am a recovering Democrat. I guess I should say I'm fully recovered. Two political parties is an insane notion. There are 320 million US citizens. To hold to our personal integrity and express our personal, unique combination of attributes, there needs to be 320 million apolitical, non-partisan, citizens in the US.
Non-partisan love and peace to all,
Dennis T Leahy
Please read The Reset Button document, sign it, and spread the word as quickly as possible. If you read the first part of The Reset Button document, you'll clearly see how the international bankers have taken over the electoral system in the US, ensuring that they stay in control no matter who you vote for. You'll see why action is required immediately to remove them from power.
Fear and fear-conditioning are the most powerful weapons employed by the Financial Elite to gain and maintain control over us. To get a good idea how the psychology of fear and fear conditioning can be used to control good people, an excellent resource is the (free) online documentary film "Human Resources - Social engineering in the 20th century".
