This year we're not holding an election. November 6th isn't a choice between two presidents. It's merely a litmus test to tell us whether anyone is actually paying attention to the facts. Whether ignorance has won the day, and whether the number of voters who really couldn't care less about the future of this country save for their meager government pittance, has finally overcome the masses who want to work harder and smarter for a better shot at life. Whether class-based revenge trumps the value of the freedoms that have been endowed to us by our creator. November 6th answers the question: have we finally sold our souls short?
It's kind of scary that we are even at this sorry stage. Freedoms lost may only ever be a generation away, but lately it feels like they are a mere election away. Should Obama lose Tuesday, some 40+ percent of the populace will still have cast their vote for the man and that's in spite of the lack of progress he's made throughout his entire career. I know janitors with more impressive accomplishments.
Whether America wins or loses tomorrow, this election isn't business as usual. It's a warning, a clarion call for all Americans to take stock in themselves and ask how we even got to this point. Is this what the founders envisioned for us? Is this what we have envisioned for ourselves? Something has gone very wrong in the great experiment. Parameters are off kilter, and the system is not operating within normal parameters. One election won't fix all that is wrong, but your vote for Mitt Romney tomorrow is a great start on the real road to American recovery.
