Obama and Romney completed their last official debate last night and I couldn’t be more thankful. I grow weary of hearing the same “canned” talking points from Romney and the delusional arrogant lies Obama keeps muttering. Despite my cynicism I’m sure I could find some positive attributes about Romney, such as: He appears to be a man of faith and conviction even though I may disagree with some major tenants of his Mormon religion, He seems to have a better understanding of our economic situation and how to use government to help improve it, He has actually challenged Obama during the debates which is something the media neglected in the past 4 years, He seems to have a genuine love for God and our Nation, and He says the “right things”. Will these “positives” translate into a President that I can fully support? More importantly will Romney be a President that can help halt the current back-slide of our nation into the abyss of debt, immorality and decreased global influence for good, or is it too late?
I will agree that our economy is a very important issue but it’s not the only issue. Frankly, Obama stinks on all the issues, just as a Marxist should in a capitalistic Judeo-Christian nation. The fact that anyone is surprised by our current economic conditions and post-Constitutional direction is laughable. We have had over 100 years of bigger and bigger government, with a decrease in Christian principles and values. And to make matters worse, in the last election nearly 70 million foolish people voted for a man they knew nothing about; other than he was for “hope and change.” Obama spoke in platitudes, eloquently recited speeches from a teleprompter, created excitement and feelings of belonging to an important cause, and he was BLACK. I’ve never cast a vote based on my emotions and/or the color of someone’s skin, but I have tried to inform myself about the actual person I might vote for; such as their personal history of education and family, their stated and unstated beliefs in faith, the Constitution, economics, foreign policy and various social issues. I have zero use for a voter that acts on emotion and neglects reason, logic and Biblical truth.
There are a couple things I know for certain: 1) Obama is a horrible President for any number of reasons, and another 4 years of his ego-centric Marxism could push our nation over the edge…or maybe we “went over” years ago. 2) Romney is the only other viable option thanks to a horribly misguided Republican Party, and I don’t fully trust him based on his political history of “flip-flops”. So what is a conscientious American voter to do? Do you vote for the moron or the Mormon?
Here are your options: If you think our nation isn’t “too far gone” and can be saved from the abyss, then you have no other choice but to vote for Romney and hope for the best outcome. (And I’m not just talking about economic outcomes)….or….If you firmly believe we have passed the point of no return, then your vote for Romney is no better than a vote for Obama. Voting for Romney would only prolong the inevitable; our nation will collapse on its own weight of debt, immorality and foolish behavior.
Quite honestly, I don’t think my hesitation in voting for Romney is because I question his “conservatism”, I think my hesitation comes from a belief that our nation may be too far gone for it to matter. How’s that for positive talk!?
