We are nearing the finish line. Our quest to regain our Republic is in plain site. We still have a long road to hoe but the vision of our Shining City on the Hill is a glorious vision that is within our grasp. America is a great nation and most of the people who live here understand what it means to be free, to have liberties and to know why and how we have them today.
“Peace Through Strength” we are a nation that has stood by this adage since it’s conception many, many years ago. We have fought great battles, we have made many mistakes but America still stands. As an example to the rest of the world, we are a beacon of Freedom. To those people who understand the concept of a free country, it is imperative to remain loyal to the ideals and the foundations constructed by our Founding Fathers. The blood that has been shed over centuries and the many lives lost are a constant reminder that freedom is more than just a word, it comes with a heavy price.
There are those that believe that we can remain all of these things without exhibiting and showing the rest of the world that we are a strong and mighty force to be reckoned with and they believe that compromise and tolerance is the answer. They are wrong.
Sadly, the entitlement society of today raises their children to believe that they are owed something for nothing. This constant misinterpretation of the facts and the progressive ideology has been fed to them most of their lives. In a lot of cases, they are raised in environments that are conducive to that way of thinking and therefore have no other knowledge. Americans have become conditioned to look to the government, to be the answer to all of their problems.
How do we as a society reverse the damage?
After the four years we have endured under the current administration we have a window of opportunity on November 6, 2012. When we as a nation come together and vote for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. The change from a community organizer to a strong principled leader. A leader with the courage, the competence, the commitment, the conviction and the character to step up and do the things that are right, to accept the future and the legacy for this great republic that’s threatened right now.
Mitt Romney will help redirect this nation back to a limited government with fiscal responsibility and free market solutions. But more importantly, get us away from leadership by entitlement. He will offer solutions to assist our small businesses, infuse our economy, lower our unemployment numbers, give our Military much deserved and well needed encouragement with a Commander In Chief who will not stand down or leave anyone behind. A Romney administration will reorganize our safety nets so they will be there for our children and most importantly give strength to our National Security.
“We know that peace is the condition under which mankind was meant to flourish. Yet peace does not exist of its own will. It depends on us, on our courage to build it and guard it and pass it on to future generations. George Washington’s words may seem hard and cold today, but history has proven him right again and again. “To be prepared for war,” he said, “is one of the most effective means of preserving peace.” Well, to those who think strength provokes conflict, Will Rogers had his own answer. He said of the world heavyweight champion of his day: “I’ve never seen anyone insult Jack Dempsey.” – President Ronald Reagan
This country is at a crossroads. We can either continue the path we are going down now and end up a third world country with unimaginable levels of poverty and debt leaving nothing to our children by re-electing Obama. Or, we can elect two men with a real plan for this country that can change that downward spiral and that is Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.
