Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - In John Taylor of Caroline's book "Inquiry Into The Principles of the Government of the United States" he warned us of the party system. He said that people involved in these parties would use them as "tools for ambition and tyranny". And, in modern layman's speak, he said that the political parties would turn into people voting for the lesser of two evils instead of choosing their conscience.

Mike: I have the story here “Embracers of the Constitution are baffled by what’s really in it.” I also wanted to take you back in time. This was posted yesterday on my sight under the headline “Money for Nuthin’ & Your Chicks for Free”-My Tour of the RNC, my little stab at writing and trying to make some sense of all this, which is this is a business. This is not a political gathering; it’s a business gathering. There are people here, bless their hearts and souls, that think they’re here for politics but they’re not. This is an industry. If you read the piece I posted yesterday, I briefly tried to describe the Industry and what it is that it sells and does.
I started it off with this, though. It’s a quote from John Taylor of Caroline’s book “Inquiry Into The Principles of the Gov’t of the United States.” I just put one paragraph of his book in here about what happens to political parties that ultimately wanted existing to nominate powerful executives; we call them presidents.
“[The powerful Executive branch]…converts representation into vassalage to the leaders of parties, disciplined, not by the comparatively honourable infliction of the lash, but by the base and wicked sophism, that it is honourable to stick to a party, and treacherous to adhere to conscience.” [Mike: What he’s talking about is voting for lesser of two evils because you have to choose one party over the other instead of choosing your conscience over betraying your conscience.] The disciples of this infamous doctrine are forged into tools for ambition and tyranny by praises and rewards, whilst honesty is discouraged by base epithets, as a foil to the varnish with which the decoys are painted, designed to deceive and enslave the multitude.”
Mike: Then I wrote, “And so I bear witness to Taylor’s analysis of the fully corrupt English system now in full, glorious swing in the U.S. If there is one thing you will glean from visiting the RNC or DNC it is that what we call ‘politics’ is actually an industry.”
