The truth about November's political choices

Many people sigh in disgust at the very mention of anything political, but these same people generally make their voting decisions based upon the most shallow indicator of all--how they “feel” about a candidate.  They do not research the candidate’s character, the policies they represent, or their future plans for the nation. 

What I’m going to say now, will undoubtedly result in a flood of denials, charges of “ignorance,” and libelous personal attacks, but none of that will have any effect on its veracity.  American politics today, is nothing more than a classic struggle between right and wrong.  This is not to say that one party is pure light and the other is purely darkness or that there is not deception on both sides. There is.  But between the two parties, one is far and away a better choice.  It hasn’t always been this way. 

The differences between the two parties were once less significant.  In the early twentieth century, the issues that the two parties struggled over were foreign trade regulations and taxation, whether or not America should become involved in conflicts that were taking place in Europe, and a variety of domestic issues.  But all that changed in the 1970s, with the U.S. Supreme Court’s outrageous decision to legalize abortion.  Republicans opposed abortion, so in order to contrast themselves from the right, the Democrat party took the other position and advocated abortion.  They did not have to do this, they chose to take this position.

In November, we will choose between good and evil, right and wrong, success and failure.  Former president, Bill Clinton, once bemoaned the fact that in modern American politics, we say that our opponent is not only wrong on the issue, but evil.  And he was right about that, and it‘s exactly the choice to be made.  

Want proof?  Here it is.  Democrats favor abortion on demand, seek to force acceptance of homosexuality, impose higher taxes to fund wasteful government programs, stealing of the public’s money through taxation, to pay for the basic needs of those who would rather not work for a living.  In short, Democrats strive to spare people from the natural and predictable consequences of their own bad choices.

Republicans in general, favor life over abortion, make no concession for homosexuality, oppose higher taxes, and promote the personal freedom to create and hold wealth, and do with it as one pleases.  The right choice is clear.

The trouble is that the Democrat platform appeals more to the base desires of people, instead of noble principles.  And that is a difficult battle to win.  Much like two-year-old children, who don’t get their way, adults too, can become quite vicious when they are told, “no“.

To those battles, add the fact that Obama has still not provided proof of his citizenship, his utter contempt for the U.S. Constitution, and his bent toward socialism, and you have no room for compromise. 

Republicans are not blameless--far from it.  They went right along and joined those Congressmen who stole every dime that social security earned, wrote into the budgets, their own earmarks, and hiked their own pay.  (The people should demand that Congressional salaries be determined by public consensus only).  But neither side in Congress is likely to give up that power.

If the American people knew the whole story of the American economy and budget, millions would be so outraged as to physically remove and throw out every member of Congress and begin fresh. 

When the United States of America was first formed, Congressional representatives were businessmen, not career politicians.  They were businessmen, because businessmen had the most at stake in federal law.  In fact, they couldn’t have been fulltime lawmakers, since the early Congress was not in session year round.  Does anyone really think it a good idea to allow legislators who are mainly lawyers, to have the whole year to invent new laws? 

How can anyone expect a man who has never had a private-sector job--who has never run a business and who has nothing of value at risk, make a good political leader?  The November election will be a referendum on right versus wrong, good versus bad, and success versus failure.  We need a better class leaders, yes, but we also need a better class of electorate.  Let us not be fooled again.
