The Primary races are over. The conventions are over. Early voting is over. 


Now, the future of this country lies in the hands of those who have not yet voted.


This has been the most contentious election in my life’s experience and I have watched every election cycle since 1956.


We have had good presidents, bad presidents, and just plain office holders over the last half century but never have we had a president who holds every positive characteristic of our nation in open contempt and a president who has done so much to disassemble this country to fit into a failed political philosophy.


I am a “boomer”, born in the golden age of our nation. 

In August of 1963 (August 28, 1963), as I was entering high school, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered is most memorable “I Have A Dream” speech. 


That speech lit a fire in my soul. Like my father before me, I set aside the hopes and dreams of my potential future in favor of a compelling need to serve my country in some  small way. Two combat tours in Vietnam before I was old enough to vote or buy a beer exacted a stiff price in my life and the lives of my family but did nothing to dim the fire fueling my need to advance the dream of Dr. King.


This regime has done more to kill Dr. King’s dream once for all time than anyone could have ever envisioned.


The constant message about “tax breaks for millionaires” and the monotonous repetition of references to “the middle class” is designed to do one thing: promote class warfare. And countless other messages from this regime have one the same purpose: divide America into consumable enclaves.


The motto “United We Stand - Divided We Fall” has been used by many patriots since the time of Aesop. And it continues to reverberate through the passage of time because it is an empirical truth.


Our Declaration of Independence states: 


We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”



Dr. King also said:


“When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir.”


And Dr. King said: 


“It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note...”


And now it is up to those who have not yet voted to decide whether that promissory note may yet be honorably dispatched.


A friend of mine introduced me to the term “Sewer Salad” in describing our current political arena and I do love creatively accurate phrases -especially when one is so wonderfully appropriate.


But consider this - There are but two ways to empty a bowl of sewer salad. We can dump it all over the table top and into our laps and spread disease and death on our friends and family or we can fill the bowl in such a way as to force all the sewage to be replaced and absorbed by rock solid components.


Sticking your fork into the table top or your ear will not solve the issue of the “sewage salad”.


We are replacing the sewage with rock solid patriots like Allen West, Tim Scott, and yes Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.


The current regime worships a failed political agenda in which our president has consistently insisted that bigger government, more regulations, and less personal freedom is the answer.


We The People fervently believe in the American Dream - Dr. King’s dream - the dream of unlimited horizons attainable only by the power of the unleashed human spirit and the personal freedom to seek those horizons as we each see fit; not as slaves to arbitrary elitist government mandates.

America did not all of a sudden find itself on this precipice of oblivion in just four short years. We allowed the ship of state drift aimlessly - guided by the political winds of the moment.


And America will not be able to reset the course of this nation with a single election or just four years of another administration. 


We the people must take the helm handed to us by the founding fathers of this nation.


The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”


The Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of The United States of America. 

The “Bottom Line of Freedom”.


Take nose plugs and barf bags to the polls if you must but do not sign the death warrant for our nation by not voting for the right side of the aisle. 


Staying home is a vote for Obama.

Writing in the name of your favorite uncle, your girlfriend or boyfriend or your dog is a vote for Obama.

Voting for a Third Party candidate of any flavor is a vote for Obama.


Stand for America.

Stand for Freedom.

Stand for The American Dream.


And if that means you have to do as I did as a teenager in Vietnam and stand in sewage and buffalo dung up to your neck, you keep firing (voting). You take down the enemies of this nation one election at a time but you keep firing (voting) and you keep advancing to the next defensive position until you can see the safety of base camp. That island of freedom, liberty, and unity. The nation our founding fathers gifted to us and we have neglected for so long. America The Beautiful!


And if your aim is true, and you keep advancing, the buffalo dung becomes nothing more than soil on your boots and bad memories that will take another fifty years to forget.

There is NO such thing as a "moderate" muslim!!

Wow Darwin that was very well said...I wish I could say I agree with you and I don't disagree with you on every thing you have said so eloquently. I on the other hand am a bit more blunt. Now when I see Romney I do see a glimmer of hope however on closer observation I the same suit that Obama is wearing. That's right in my humble opinion they speak a different language but they do the same thing.

I am sick of people telling me that if I don't vote for Romney it's a vote for obama. That is a load of s***. I will not have my vote counted as a vote for obama. I will not be bullied into voting for a person that I have not one once of respect for and I will not vote for my dog. I respect your opinion but I will vote for whom I will vote for and NOT someone I believe will be not one bit better that what we have. I believe to many people allow them selves to be shamed into voting for someone else's idea of a "good candidate". That is why we are in this mess to begin with.

Thank you for your opinion but you know what they say about opinions.


At this point the war is unavoidable start planing for that. Vote your conscience.

Ben come and get me Warford U.S. Army Vet.

God Bless us with Romney and Ryan Win!!!!

Just in to my inbox from Michele Bachmann:



I need your support right away!!

Please go to my website here and make an immediate donation.



Anybody surprised?  If they gotta send their batman, because boy wonder is not cutting it...must mean they are reallllly...realllllly desperate for votes.  Personally, I don't think many independents will fall under the SPELL of the Clintons, much longer...but Michele could use some HELP - we do need a CONGRESS and SENATE.  Romney can not do it alone.

The you tube videos below depict just one aspect of the hell we are to expect, if Zero gets back in. If you are so inclined, please read as much as you can on what Stalin did in the Ukraine to the Kulaks and their farms. The ones who did not starve to death, he shot.In one year, Stalin managed to murder 5 million people during that 12 month period. If Zero wins, get ready for the Cheka, Gulags and one hell of a scorched earth policy.

How right you are Darwin.

"The nation our founding fathers gifted to us and we have neglected for so long. America The Beautiful!" That about says it all. What are we going to do about it -- VOTE !!

Comment by Norma J. Sears on November 4, 2012 at 2:32pm

The "King" is in office until January even if he loses.

Comment by Juana Millares on November 4, 2012 at 2:26pm
