So why the Independent Bi-Partisan Coalition?
To answer I will use the American Heritage Dictionary to help define the IBPC:
Independent: Not governed by a foreign power, self-governing. Free from the influence, guidance, or control of another or others; self-reliant; an independent mine.
The IBPC is not and will not be controlled or influenced by any political party or lobby. The IBPC is seeking independent minded people to join and bring the spirit of our Founding Fathers back into our political system through compromise. This will not be easy, the two party system has a hold on our government and they will not give up that hold easily.
Bi-Partisan: adj. Of, consisting of, or supported by members of two parties, especially two major political parties; a bipartisan resolution.
The IBPC is more than just bipartisan; the IBPC needs non partisan / independent citizens to get involved along with Democrats and Republicans who are fed up with how the two party system is controlling our country. It is time for all Americans to come together and work to resolve the problems that affect all our citizens. If this generation doesn’t get it right then it will be our children and grandchildren who will pay the price for our inaction.
Coalition: An alliance, of people, factions, parties, or nations. A combination into one; a union.
A Union, where have we heard that use in American history, how about during a grave time in American history the Civil War. Abraham Lincoln said it best in his “A House Divided” speech in1858 “A house divided against itself cannot stand. I believe this government cannot endure permanently half slave and half free. I do not expect the Union to be dissolved; I do not expect the house to fall; but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing, or all the other.”
Today we have a house divided against itself and it will not stand. Today the issue is not slavery that has us divided; it’s the two party system that has us divided. As the two major parties fight for control We The People lose since neither party gets anything done.
It’s time “We The People” get involved again, as long as we sit back and do nothing we deserve the kind of government we have. It’s time to educate Americans to the promises set forth in our Founding Documents so once again “We the People” can Guide Our Nation To Greatness as our Founding Fathers did for us with their blood and sacrifice.
So Why the IBPC?
Why, because our Founding Fathers started a revolution and we are the result. Our Founding Fathers knew that if our government was to survive that we would need to compromise. Somewhere along the way our leaders have forgotten how to do that, our leaders have fallen to the point that they don’t even show any respect for one another or their opinions. Through the IBPC we will demand our elected officials re-learn the art of compromise that our Founding Fathers used to create the greatest country on earth America.
So with your help the IBPC can help educate and bring Americans back together again. Americans who care deeply for our country and want a future for our children and grandchildren. A future where all Americans can take part in the American Dream, a future like our Founding Fathers gave to their children and grandchildren.
