Two years ago, just prior to the 2010 elections, I wrote an article reflecting on where we were in our journey to take back our country. These points are from that article, and their importance remains the same:
My vote is against the Communists who have seeped their way into the public consciousness and walk about with an air of respectability.
My vote is against those who would betray the unborn.
My vote is against the government who would enslave the people to generations of debt.
My vote is against the narcissism and elitism of a political class that seeks to be rulers over free Americans.
My vote is against the Leftists’ revision of history and their takeover of our educational system.
My vote is against a mainstream media which is like a malignant tumor across this great land.
My vote is against the corruption of government and a bureaucracy that lacks common sense.
My vote is against those who would take my freedom as an individual and my birthright as an American.
Now, more importantly, this is why I am voting on November 6th;
My vote is for the individual to succeed in his own right, on his own merit.
My vote stands for families, for future generations. My vote stands for the unborn – that they may live.
My vote stands for the elderly, the sick and disabled – it stands for humanity and humility.
My vote stands for the oppressed – to show them America and how we are free.
My vote stands for freedom of religion, not from religion. I want to hear those church bells ring again.
My vote stands for a judiciary that supports the Constitution.
My vote stands for America and her awesomeness…her exceptionalism, her flag, her honor and her dignity.
My vote stands for her military – those who have died to keep her free, and those that die today that others may be free.
My vote stands with everyone else’s vote – for America- with love and pride in a nation that does not fail to open her hands and heart to the world.
It’s been four long years, four years of disharmony in this country, four years of economic hardship and high unemployment. Four years of out of control spending by a president and a Congress who abdicated their responsibilities to the people to protect, defend and preserve her as she was founded. The Founding Fathers gave us the fundamentals to keep this Republic going for at least a millennium or until man’s selfish greed and desire for power and control took over and returned us to despotic rule. Yes, that’s exactly what has been happening over the past 100 years, culminating in the greatest “hoax” (thank you, Clint Eastwood), and fraud ever perpetrated upon the American people. The hoax came in the guise of the final implementation of a leftist/socialist agenda and welfare state, and the fraud came in the person of Barack Obama. It is time to focus on today, and the meaning of this coming Tuesday, Nov. 6th.
We’ve longed for this day to arrive, the day to cast off the dark shadow cast upon America in 2008. We’ve done everything we could in the interim to stop the destruction of this country. We had some successes and some failures. Our failures were in not being able to stop President Obama’s Stimulus which gave almost a trillion dollars to his cronies and union buddies. We weren’t able to hold off the Democrat assault, via the Senate and House, in the first two years, from legislating recklessly and arrogantly. And our greatest disappointment lies with being unable to stop Obamacare, the greatest assault on individual and religious freedom in this country’s history. Yet, we had success, and this success was at the ballot box. State and Federal elections in 2009, 2010, 2011, and this year in Wisconsin; traditional, freedom-loving Americans showed that they were going to fight the assault on America, and turned out in record numbers to vote.
Now we come to the biggest fork in the road of modern times for America. This Tuesday we vote again. We vote to throw off the yoke of tyranny so arrogantly placed upon the American people. The ballots we cast will be multiplied by millions across this country, they’ll give us a voice, a voice that can’t be stopped. It will be a vote of such vastness, it cannot be contained.
Of all the words we’ve heard from campaigns and candidates about voting, Mitt Romney said it best when he asked us to vote “for love of country.”
We’ve all given time, talent and treasure. There is only one thing left to do – Vote.
I’m going to vote for Love of Country.
God Bless all of you. May our journey continue.
