Bear with me while I paint a picture. There are people working hard and pulling together to fight against a merciless foe in another part of the world. This enemy has used charisma, wiles, and cunning to deceive an entire nation. One day the nation woke up, and there were many dire days ahead. A lot of people suffered. A lot of men, women, and children died.
This was WWII. Why do I bring this up now?
There are different ideologies at war with each other in our country. Thousands of people in other parts of the world, can only imagine a country that would promote life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. No, happiness is not guaranteed. However, everyone can have the opportunity to work hard and chase the dream that is important to them. Others would argue, it is time for a change. Others would say socialism makes certain everyone has all their needs met. The government will take care of everyone. I ask, “Do you believe that 48M people are unable to work”?
The war of ideologies took a sharp left turn, when a President was elected who truly believes a hybrid version of socialism is good for America. Instead of encouraging personal responsibility, millions of people now have a “caretaker” called the government. History has taught us that socialism has never worked. Perhaps it is because we, as a species are only human. There will always be those who are “takers” and those who are “producers” as spoken about by the late, great Ayn Rand.
This country is special. For over 200 years, America has been a beacon of hope to all that enter. All things are possible in this land of great hope and promise. This has never changed. People dream of America today as always.
There is a critical competition now between many deserving Republicans. Why do I say deserving? All of the people who step up in such a climate of hostility to try and make a difference, should be treated with respect. Day after day, I have read articles tearing down Republican candidates. My challenge to all who read this article is to weigh all the similarities and differences of the candidates prior to making a decision. These are human beings. There is no perfect candidate that will satisfy everyone. What should we look for in a candidate? In my opinion, we should encourage the heros who stand up and say, “I will try”. Give them a fair shot. Evaluate them, and vote.
Why should we resort to leftist tactics against the Presidential candidates at a time when the country is at a crossroads? These are honorable, highly qualifed individuals who at all costs to their personal lives and the lives of their families want to serve their country.
Remember what made WWII great? Remember the people and the pride in their country. Remember the sense of pulling together for a common enemy. Remember what makes America great. The most important thing to be done, is to unite, and choose the candidate who ensures Obama will be a one term President.Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( 8 so far )
