It’s not as if any side is going to surrender on Wednesday. The political fights will continue. But the results from Tuesday will matter for the future, the present, and the past.
The American future will be greatly determined on Tuesday. The vote on Tuesday will also be a shout from today’s electorate as to what kind of country we want. Tuesday will also inform us all as to what happened in the past – if Obama loses we’ll finally get to hear the truth about his history and campaigns as well as rejoice in the judgment call of history on his tactics througout his electoral history.
A Mitt Romney win on Tuesday will mean that race-baiting as a political movement will end – character, not skin color will determine our choice in leaders. A Mitt Romney win on Tuesday will mean the American voter believes in accountability as to elected officials and not smear and fear slime tactics as practiced so dexterously in Chicago. A Mitt Romney win on Tuesday means the American future is not the Greece present.
If Barack Obama wins on Tuesday all restraints on race-baiting, fear/smear politics, and unaccountable elected officials will get worse.
With both these scenarios we’ll bet on the American people but we all have to understand the toxic influence of Big Media on our daily lives and on our electoral process.
Vote as if your lives depended on it because in many ways they do.
The Professor also graphically reminds us that on election day 1980 the polls, according to Associated Press, held the election “too close to call”. Reagan won solidly. This is important because as we have written before Mitt Romney has premised his campaign on the 1980 campaign.
As we have also written before America’s future is not the only future to be determined. World leadership is also up for grabs by the ugliest totalitarian regimes imaginable if Barack Obama were to retain his bony grasp on power.
The stakes if the Obama Dimocratic Party retains power are described by Sheldon G. Adelson: I Didn’t Leave the Democrats. They Left Me
“When members of the Democratic Party booed the inclusion of God and Jerusalem in their party platform this year, I thought of my parents.
They would have been astounded. [snip]
So why did I leave the party? [snip]
No, the truth is the Democratic Party has changed in ways that no longer fit with someone of my upbringing.
One obvious example is the party’s new attitude toward Israel. A sobering Gallup poll from last March asked: “Are your sympathies more with the Israelis or more with the Palestinians?” Barely 53% of Democrats chose Israel, the sole liberal democracy in the region. By contrast, an overwhelming 78% of Republicans sympathized with Israel.
Nowhere was this change in Democratic sympathies more evident than in the chilling reaction on the floor of the Democratic convention in September when the question of Israel’s capital came up for a vote. Anyone who witnessed the delegates’ angry screaming and fist-shaking could see that far more is going on in the Democratic Party than mere opposition to citing Jerusalem in their platform. There is now a visceral anti-Israel movement among rank-and-file Democrats, a disturbing development that my parents’ generation would not have ignored. [snip]
As a person who has been able to rise from poverty to affluence, and who has created jobs and work benefits for tens of thousands of families, I feel obligated to speak up and support the American ideals I grew up with—charity, self-reliance, accountability. These are the age-old virtues that help make our communities prosperous. Yet, sadly, the Democratic Party no longer seems to value them as it once did. That’s why I switched parties, and why I’m now giving amply to Republicans.
Although I don’t agree with every Republican position—I’m liberal on several social issues—there is enough common cause with the party for me to know I’ve made the right choice.
It’s the choice that, I believe, my old immigrant Jewish neighbors would have made. They would not have let a few disagreements with Republicans void the importance of siding with the political party that better supports liberal democracies like Israel, the party that better exemplifies the spirit of charity, and the party with economic policies that would certainly be better for those Americans now looking for work.
The Democratic Party just isn’t what it used to be.
The stakes are high. Mittmentum is expanding the map. There is hope America will be rescued. Stay positive. Call everyone you know. The stakes are too high to not win.
America must be rescued or in many respects the America of content of character will be wounded if not shattered.
Tomorrow we get to determine the future at the ballot box. Rescue America.
