This election is important

  • Follow Letters

How can you vote for someone – anyone – who believes that the Constitution is a “living document” that should be put out of its misery? How do you vote for anyone who does not know this is a republic and not a democracy, which allows the nation to survive on the whims and greed of the minority? How do you vote for anyone who does not believe in moral integrity, free enterprise and marriage responsibility, and is against sexual chaos?

We do not need to be like other nations because they are failing and corrupt. We were the light of the world, which is why people came here and why others vow to turn out our lights. Only those who hate humanity and themselves would want to destroy our freedom, success and faith. We are losing the battle, almost gleefully accepting our bondage of excessive taxes, sexual perversion and political correctness.

What compressed mind would want such a thing? Do we not want liberty? Do we all not want success? Do we not want to pursue happiness? Judging by our recent elections, we despise those who achieved the American dream, hate working for our basic needs and dare to mock God for not sending manna from heaven to feed our lazy selves. Like it or not, the archaic vision of our forefathers looks pretty good compared to the anarchy that is our new future.

If you think our next election is not important, think again. Stop blaming someone else and stand up for the change we were promised more than 200 years ago. The road to destruction is wide, so do we vote to save our country or do we vote for more handouts and social collapse? Which do you choose?

Conservatives Get Excited

This is the most important election in our history. Obama has clearly stated his goal is to move us to a European like socialism that will leave us broke and rioting in the streets like Greece. He also winked at the Russians for what he'd do after winning the election.

We HAVE to retain the House (defeat Barrow), take the Senate and most importantly send Obama back to Indonesia or wherever it is he likes best.

Boy he hit it on the head.

Boy he hit it on the head. Stop and look around. The government has their hands in everything. The government will soon be telling you where you can live, what you can eat, how much you can make, what profession you can choose, etc. A high school grad can not even find employment with enough income to put a roof over their head. If mom and dad can not support them who will.

Romney is just another head in a suit. Obama thinks he's the King, not a public servant. A guy like Ron Paul doesn't stand a chance in our money-driven political climate. So, I have to stand by my mantra -- ANYBODY BUT OBAMA.

How can

America survive when democrats and liberals celebrate the extermination of millions of unborn lives and be so appalled at the extermination of those scum on "death row"? "Folks", we're losing and the left has taken over.

we don't need confusion to get rid of Obama

If I hear one more time that we're a Republic and not a Democracy I will pull my hair out and scream!
We are both!
In fact The USSR in their hayday was a Republic. What do you think the R stood for in USSR?
WE are a republic which means we are a bunch of states representing the whole government. We have a democratic form of government which means we have free voting to elect our leaders.
Why in the world would the US try to spread democracy to other countries when we don't practice it ourselves?
Some folks need to pull out their dictionaries and find the definition of a Republic and a Democracy. Either that or they need to take a ninth grade US History course to understand our form of government.
We do not need to use smokescreens and mirrors to confuse the public. Yes, we are a Republic but we're also a democracy!
The end!

‘In fact The USSR in their hayday was a Republic’
And they did the same thing we are doing now; their leaders no long obey their laws. That is the same thing that is happening here with Holder and Hussein.
