Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
– Albert Einstein
There is a clear and present danger facing the US of A.
We can test Einstein’s theory and re-elect Mr. Obama, but I fear the result will take us over the precipice.
The second part of the peril is re-electing the core of today’s Congress. Their failure to check and balance the Executive Branch since the days of the contract with America is demoralizing. Many are, for their own reasons, nothing more than docile dupes of the Executive Branch or of their Party’s complicit leadership. The hypocrisy that rules today’s Washington is unmistakable as abundantly demonstrated by the following quote:
“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our government’s reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, ‘the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.” – Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006.
The sad part is that a large segment of the electors have been bought through one type or another of governmental largess at the expense of the minority of remaining tax payers. The average elector is unable to recognize and comprehend the impact of their vote in favor of Mr. Obama. Too many missed the history class when they taught about the Weimar Republic of the 1920s.
The current Congressional and Executive leadership is doing everything to enable the destruction of one of the great societal success stories in the history of the world. Mr. Obama’s proposed alternative has been tried and has failed. To wit: Soviet Union, Cuba, North Korea, the European welfare states.
I refuse to believe that we are beyond hope. Will Mr. Romney be able to single handedly change the outcome? I doubt it. A more important question is: Is Mr. Romney willing and able to steer a new direction? I believe that he is with the help of an equally dedicated Congress. Will there be pain and suffering, yes. The American people are famous for their resilience at difficult times. We are now squarely facing one of the most critical moments in our history. It is on par with the Boston Tea Party, the onset of the Civil War, Pearl Harbor and the World Trade Center. The American people have demonstrated their ability and willingness to make hard decisions and to back their determination with action. That is what must be done on Election Day!
We Can Save America!
