“We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” – Presidential Candidate Barack Obama, 2008
For the past four years, we’ve been seeing the fundamental change that Obama has done to America. The change from a $40 Billion deficit to a $1 Trillion deficit. The change from a $10 Trillion Debt to a $16 Trillion debt. The change from 32 Million food stamp recipients to 47 million. The change from 13 million people unemployed to 22 million unemployed. A change from being able to go through airport security without getting groped to now having to go through airport security and get legally molested. A change from being the leader of the world in economics, military, and diplomacy to now being a second-rate nation that is laughed at in all three categories. A change from being very clear on where we stand with both allies and enemies to now negotiating with our enemies and ignoring our allies.
Even Obama himself can’t argue against these numbers and facts, we saw that in the Presidential debates over the past month. Obama has done more damage to the US economy in 4 years then Bush or anyone before him did in 8. If we continue on the path we are currently on, it is estimated that we will have a $22 Trillion Debt and 54 million food stamp recipients by 2016. Four years ago we had no knowledge who Barack Obama was, very little to go on what he stood for. In his 2004 speech at the Democratic National Convention, he spoke about coming together to continue the greatness that is America. But since 2008, Obama has done nothing but divide America. He has even managed to divide his own party between the Progressives, Socialist, and true Democrats who have watched their party get taken over for years. As many have said, “This is no longer your grandparent’s Democratic Party.”
In 5 days, we too will have a chance to fundamentally transform the United States of America. We will have the chance to return America to its founding principles of Life, Liberty, and Property. The ideal that, “…all men are created equal…” will return. Over the past 4 years, we have been educating ourselves and others of the true history of America. Of how we came to where we are, who truly stood for the rights of all people no matter their color or creed. That no matter where we came from or what we look like, we are all Americans. This is the choice we have in 5 days. A woman on Stanton Island in New York was shown on the news this evening asking her Senators, “When is the government coming?” Do you want to be like this woman, dependent on the government to survive, to live? Or do you want to be an American, able to survive on your own and able to tell the government to go away because you’ve got it covered? Which will you choose?
I wish that even with the choices above made, that this mess would be fixed in a second, but that can’t happen. It will take a few years, maybe more, to truly get this mess fixed. It has been created over 100 years and its going to take more than 4, 8, 10 years even to get it truly fixed. But, that doesn’t mean we should just accept it as it is. The clean up and fixing have to start somewhere. We’ve already begun the work over the past 4 years by getting the true power, the Citizens, ready. Now it is time to take that power and knowledge to fix the government.
“The power under the Constitution will always be in the people. It is entrusted for certain defined purposes, and for a certain limited period, to representatives of their own choosing; and whenever it is executed contrary to their interest, or not agreeable to their wishes, their servants can, and undoubtedly will, be recalled” – George Washington, 1787
It is our job to ensure that the United States continues on. It has always been our responsibility. “We The People…” created this government, we granted it limited power to ensure the civility and organization to protect our freedoms. And now, it has stepped outside those limited powers, and thus it is our job to push it back. On November 6th, you have 2 choices, to take responsibility and limit the government, or step aside and watch as the greatest nation goes down in flames. This is what you’re voting on. And remember, not to vote, is to vote.
“Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual – or at least that he ought not so to do; but that he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country.” – Samuel Adams, 1781
And now to close, I would like to present my predictions on how the election will turn out. Based on how things have gone over the past few months and what the mood is like in every state, these are The Tea Revolution’s predictions on the outcome of the 2012 Presidential Election:
