Well, this is it. Two days till we know who wins. Two days till we know in which direction our country will travel – toward liberty and a constitutionally limited government, or further down the rabbit hole of a new normal where the president does an end zone dance on an uptick in the unemployment rate as if he’d cured cancer. It will be either Mitt Romney or Barack Obama.
Personally, I prefer a nation where the president doesn’t sit fecklessly weighing options during a 7-hour attack on Americans overseas and turns a deaf ear to cries for help from people representing him in a hostile land. I choose to vote for leadership that isn’t afraid to stand up and call terrorism what it is, doesn’t want to be loved by our enemies and would never, ever tell heroes to “stand down” in the face of tyranny.
I am going to vote against four more years of an economy where the only drop in the unemployment rate has come because so many of my fellow Americans gave up hope of finding work. I choose a growing economy where risk-takers are rewarded, not punished, and jealously is not fostered from 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
I reject a government that would sell weapons to drug cartels and not track them. I choose to support a government that doesn’t attempt to wipe the blood of Brian Terry, Jaime Zapata and hundreds of innocent Mexicans off their hands on a bogus claim of “Executive Privilege.”
