NOVEMBER IS GOOD VERSUS EVIL
The Supreme Court has provided clarity.
Not on the law.
But on the politics.
In the wake of the Obamacare decision – a Dred Scott case of our day – freedom and the Constitution lie strewn about like road kill on the Interstate. The Supreme Court, the backstop of our liberties, got it wrong and from here on out we are working without a net.
From here on out, the people must reclaim their sovereignty. The president and the Congress got it wrong, the court got it wrong, now the people must take matters into their own hands.
And on Election Day we will.
That’s what the Supreme Court did. It gave us a clear understanding of what November means. It is a clear choice between two Americas. One built upon the Constitution and a traditional understanding of liberty, and the other built upon a welfare check.
It’s big government versus individual freedom, government dictate versus individual choice. A nation of patriots or a nation of recipients.
Will our fundamental document be the Constitution or the EBT card?
Will you make your insurance and health-care decisions or will Obama?
Will the Democrats get a blank check in November or will freedom-loving Americans rise to the challenge and save not just the day but the country?
Time will tell.
But this much is sure: For a great many of us, it all became crystal clear when the Supreme Court handed down its defective decision in the matter of Obamacare.
From the very moment the significance of the ruling sunk in, the path forward has become clear.
Republicans must take the controls of the federal government or all is lost. The only way to stop Obamacare and the centralization of power it represents is to use the ballot box to take the keys away from the Democrats.
That requires a Mitt Romney victory, it requires continued Republican control of the House of Representatives and it requires a Republican majority in the U.S. Senate.
It’s that simple.
It all comes down to numbers.
And a partial victory is functionally a failure.
This year is all or nothing, and that clarifies every issue. And it clarifies every race.
For the White House, for Congress, for the Senate.
There is the Obamacare candidate, and there is the Republican candidate. There is the Fast and Furious candidate, and there is the Republican candidate. There is the tax-and-spend candidate, and there is the Republican candidate. There is the socialist candidate, and there is the Republican candidate.
There is the party that seems intent on riding the country into an early grave, and there is the Republican Party. The party that believes business is bad and a welfare check is good, and there is the Republican Party. There is the party of victimhood and entitlement, and there is the Republican Party.
There is the party that stands for America, and there is the Democratic Party. There is the candidate who will work to save the economy and preserve American strength and independence, and there is Barack Obama.
There is a future, or there is what the Democrats are offering.
It’s that simple.
You can elect someone to Congress who will vote for Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama, or you can elect someone who will vote for freedom.
There are no RINOs, there are no middle-of-the road people, there are no Tea Partiers, there are only folks who will vote for or against the socialist, big-government Obama agenda. We don’t have the luxury of philosophical purity. We won’t see all things the same way, but we will see the most important things the same way. United we stand, divided we fall. We stand together, or we hang separately.
This isn’t about labels, this is about America. This is about standing up and throwing off the uncomfortable yoke which has been forced upon us in recent years. It’s not about finding fault, it’s about finding allies, and the enemy of my enemy is my friend.
If you believe that things are wrong now – for whatever reason, whatever your personal and political background – then we have common cause, and we must stand shoulder to shoulder at the ballot box.
Likewise, there can be no confusion about "conservative Democrats." A blue dog is still a dog, and a smattering of votes on various pieces of legislation means nothing compared to the vote a member of Congress casts for leadership. In the House, when it came time to pick a speaker, did they vote for Nancy Pelosi and the liberals? On the day it counted, did they stand with principle or party?
If a candidate's vote would be to give the leadership and the majority to Democrats, that is disqualifying. It is a poison pill that can not be overlooked. It is a fatal flaw. It is a wolf is sheep's clothing.
Do we continue the era of arrogant cluelessness, or do we vote for Mitt Romney and the Republicans?
Do we continue the slide into moral, political and economic bankruptcy, or do we vote for Mitt Romney and the Republicans?
Do we regain our freedom and push back an oppressive and inept federal government, or do we vote for Barack Obama and the Democrats?
The Supreme Court clarified everything.
This is a fight for national survival, this is the fork in the road, this is the one that matters.
There is a line in the sand, and the Republicans and the Constitution are on one side, and Obama and the Democrats are on the other.
And in November, the American people must decide where they – and their nation’s future – stand.
