How is it that we allow ourselves to be so fooled by politicians into thinking that we are nothing special as a nation and that we would all be better off if we were more like our brethren across the pond. I guess if you like sitting around collecting the dole and never having a job, it might be a wonderful proposition..
I think it sucks! I like working hard and getting ahead. I like not being limited by class or anything else. I have voted to remove Obama from office and for a capitalist. I voted against collectivism and spreading the wealth around. I wish I would have had less of a statist to vote for, but it was a little too close for my taste to risk not removing Obama.
I hope the rest of America sees that this country is great and it works. We need to restore the swagger and backbone to this country. We aren't afraid of heavy lifting and we are willing to take our medicine, if we see the positive results. There are a lot of selfish pricks out there that don't give a rat's ass about this country's future or the next generation, but I believe that there are far more people that love their kids and are willing to do what it takes to secure their future. I think there are still plenty of us who would do without to not see our kids and grand kids enslaved to the state.
Over this weekend, take some time to talk to others about why you are voting for freedom and opportunity. You might be surprised to find you are in good company because there are a lot of us out there who just want more out of our government than we are currently getting. Change starts with each of us and a spark is all it takes to get a roaring fire going. 2010 we flipped Congress on its head, so now it is time to take the Senate and White House. If we fail in either, we will rally the troops and take the Senate in 2014 and the White House in 2016.
Don't be discouraged by the lies you hear coming from the media, they are only trying to sell ad time and the worst and more explosive they make things the more ads they sell. Rely on your own judgement about what you know to be right and what works for you and your family. Relying on the government or relying in yourself? Seems to be a simple choice, but it can be scary if you have never done it.
I am sorry for being silent for so long, but I have a new job in a new state and things have been very crazy for the last couple of months. I love elections and politics, but I hate what is happening to our country. I want more out of our representatives and our President than a part-timer/semi-retired/golf playing empty suit. I want someone that is going to sacrifice for this country and is going to lead by example. Say what you want about Bush, but he was there working and not out playing golf. He decompressed working on the ranch, not globe hopping to exotic locals on the taxpayer dime.
I hope to write more and I hope there is good news come Wednesday morning that the fiscal conservatives have taken the Senate and House. I will have to settle for a capitalist compromiser in the White House, but that is better than a socialist radical so the change is to the good.
Get out and vote, don't care if you don't like all the choices just make one. Do your duty as a citizen of the most powerful nation on Earth and know you are voting for all those who can't. Your vote could me life or death for them and preventing your kids a lifetime of enslavement to the state.
