To say that I am disappointed by the results of the election would be a vast understatement. I would not be using hyperbole to say that I woke up Wednesday morning and literally wept at the state of our nation. To think that we will have four more years of tax and spend mentality and four more years of government pushing further and further into our private lives leaves me cold. But I think the thing that boggles my mind more than anything is the realization that WE CHOSE THIS!!!
That’s right folks, we chose this path and now we will pay for our choices. This country will get what it deserves. We can blame the media and Gary Johnson and just about anyone we want, but the truth is, we did this to ourselves. There were plenty of ways for everyone to become educated about who Obama really is. If people chose to just let MSM tell them what to think then shame on them. If people voted for a third party candidate instead of the man who could pull us out of this mess, then shame on them. Four years from now, this country will be completely transformed into a place we won’t recognize and the looters will have taken everything and earned none of it and it will be too late then to fix what is broken.
Four years from now, we will have unemployment over 10%, our debt will be over 20 trillion and entrepreneurship will be a thing of the past. Millions more people will be on food stamps, homeless, living off the government. And we will have chosen every bit of it! The decision that this country made on November 6th will have everlasting consequences that may never be able to be undone.
I never bought into the defense that people elected Obama in 2008 because we didn’t know who he was. That’s a ridiculous argument. If you don’t know anything about the man who is running for President of the United States, why are you voting for him? Because he’s half black and it makes you feel good about yourself? Because he speaks pretty words about hope and change and you seem to think that this country’s founding principles don’t fit in with your personal beliefs anymore? Those are utterly ridiculous reasons to vote for anybody. You vote for a candidate because they are going to put the country and its citizen’s needs ahead of his personal beliefs and agenda.
So, here we are 4 years later and the agenda of the Obama regime has been clearly defined and still we have re-elected him. We have chosen higher gas prices, higher unemployment, higher taxes on those who would employ us, higher health insurance premiums, and a higher deficit. I could go on, but you get the picture. We can blame the President for these choices, but we put him in that office. We gave him the green light, not once, but twice!
We are a nation of crack addicts and the government is our dealer! They have turned us into their junkies little by little just like a drug dealer does to enslave their “clientele.” They set up more and more entitlement programs and give you a free taste here and a free taste there until we’re so hooked, that we don’t believe we can survive without government handouts. We have now become a nation so enslaved on the government plantation, that we may never be free again. If you don’t believe me, sit back and watch. Remember these words if you remember nothing else about this article, “The more the government gives you, the more they can and will take from you.” And you will give up little by little, because you are afraid of being cut off from the drug that is the government entitlement agenda. We will watch as all of our liberties are taken from us; our right to free speech, then our right to worship how we wish, then our right to bear arms. One by one they have been chipped away until their meaning has been so twisted from the founder’s intent, that even they would not recognize them.
The American dream is dying and we are the ones killing it. We no longer believe in self responsibility or self reliance. We no longer have faith or the inclination that if you work hard and do your best that you have the possibility to achieve whatever you want, because this is America, land of the free and home of the brave! Instead, we are self serving, self obsessed and believe that if we sit on our butts, someone else will go out and earn the money and the government will take it away from them and give it to us and that is exactly what is happening.
We can do something about this though. We can begin now to turn this country back in the right direction so that people of all races, all creeds, all colors, all national origins and all religions who are willing to work have the opportunity to succeed. We have a mid-term election coming up in 2014 and we can begin there to right the ship! Get out there people! Start working toward getting the right people into office. It all starts at the local level. We can do this! We can save our country, but it’s going to take a lot of hard work and sacrifice! But if you aren’t part of the solution, you will be part of the problem.
