Partisanship and the History Behind It

George Washington was an independent. The “founding fathers” were independents. John Adams drafted what is considered to be the blueprint of our Constitution as a Massachusetts attorney and a similar version was approved on a federal level years later.

It is our federal constitution that has protected us from many of the attempted violations of our civil and constitutional rights. Recently, Joe Biden’s mandate that all federal employees with over 100 employees be mandated to get Covid-19 vaccines was overturned based on the fact that it is unconstitutional.

It is necessary to remember that the federal constitution, opposed by the Jeffersonian Republicans- who also mud-slinged Adams out of a second presidential term- opposed a federal constitution.

Now, it seems that this very constitution is the only thing that stands between us and a national mandate to be forced to undergo medical procedures without our consent.

John Adams’ main fear was not a central figure in government (President) but a leading aristocracy that would end up controlling everything. Turns out he was right.

It is nearly impossible for a “regular person” who is not independent wealthy to gain a seat in the legislature. It is time consuming, money consuming, and requires at least two people to run. And if you’re a single parent, forget it.

This means that we do indeed have a leading aristocracy in government that has bought votes in one way or another through their wealth and empty promises of representation.

I was told I would be “unfit” for politics as I am unwilling to sell my ethics. This is not the spirit under which this country was founded.

As Abigail Adams put it “If particular care and attention is not paid to the ladies, we are determined to foment a rebellion, and will not hold ourselves bound by any laws in which we have no voice or representation”

Born a first generation American, half Irish Catholic and half Persian Jew, I like to write about a childhood mired in the chaos of never knowing where I stood. The only constants in my life have been reading, writing and a passion for social justice. I am a nurse, a single mother, a domestic abuse survivor, radical feminist and outspoken advocate for logic, public health, gray areas, and purposeful dialogue. I know entirely too much about sociopaths, autism, and medieval British history. I write under a pen name to protect the privacy of my family.
