As we consider our choice in November, America needs to reflect upon our nation’s founding, remembering what has made America, America! This is not the time to be swayed by the progressive’s, whose diatribes of division and distortion lead us down paths of debt and destruction. This is not a time to fall prey to flattery and promises of entitlement. This is not a time to abide mediocrity, thinking that we should be coddled and cared for by a duplicitous, oppressive and burdensome sovereign. This is not a time for passivity. If we think about it, we are like a ship having sailed many, many miles only to find that we have been one degree off course. That one degree has caused us to miss the mark and we now find that we are many, many miles away from where we intended to be.
We are, after all, Americans. We stand where few have stood, which is why we kneel in grateful appreciation. We have a stewardship to stand for liberty and freedom – to defend the downtrodden and care for the needy. To do so, we need to be a free and self-reliant people, remembering who we are and the divine entreaty given to each of us, and to this land we call America. This is a time to stand together against those who would lead us into bondage and oppression, in the name of “fairness” and government dependency. This is a time for serious reflection, a time for remembering. This election is a time for men of faith to lead us as they have before. Ronald Reagan was such a man.
When comparing the hearts and minds of men who seek to lead America, and observing their experience and choices in life, it is clear – Barack Obama cares deeply about Barack Obama and his ideology of dependency, while Mitt Romney cares deeply about America and Americans, and the needed interdependency of freedom.
