The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
Its OK. I’m not about to off myself, or start some bloody revolution, as there’s a fight to be fought. The fight to save the thing I am passionate about, this country, this beautiful constitutional republic, by working to educate.
I wasn’t ever passionate about Romney. I took the chance to see him in Cincy, Lebanon & West Chester because I wanted to be engaged. I wanted to see Obama & Johnson when they had events in our area, but just couldn’t get the time to do so.
Tuesday morning, around 8AM, after queueing for about 25 minutes, I stood at the polling booth. My finger hovered a few seconds between the candidates I thought could win, (Romney/Ryan), and the candidates I felt expressed my views the best, (Johnson/Gray), before biting the bullet and choosing R/R. They were, in my mind, a far from suitable solution, but better than what we are facing now, a man who seems to think QE and spending even more, whilst expanding government, is the way to deal with the horrendous fiscal situation we are hurtling towards. The dollar had already started to fall in foreign currency markets just hours after Obama was declared the winner; the Dow Jones plunged about 300 points within 45 minutes or so, upon opening Wednesday. Thursday wasn’t much better, with multiple stories of layoff announcements.
I’m upset that the future of my children and this country has been put in jeopardy. Government will do nothing but expand over the next four years, which coupled with any future financial “stimulus” packages will do nothing but stifle the economy. ALL of the governmental spending needs to be either eliminated or cut right down to the barest bones. That is what is killing the country, and the party of people in charge is irrelevant.
Its time to wake up the masses and reach out to everyone with the libertarian message, which in general terms is fiscal conservatism, social liberalism and the freedom to do as one wishes, so long as it does not infringe on the liberty and freedom of others. I know this message is hard for some of the more socially conservative and fiscally liberal to grasp, but they need to understand.
With more “flexibility” for our President, I really do fear what the following four years holds for us, and just how the next President, whoever that shall be, will be able to clear up the mess that this egotistical shyster will make of this country, I do not know.
