We’ve all heard that one vote makes a difference, and that is oh-so true in the swing states, and down to the micro level of swing counties. This election can shape not just the next four years, but possibly the next twenty years with all the changes Obama can make as a lame-duck leader with no recourse.
Obama Care is step one. Granting illegal residents the ability to stay in this country with no penalty is another, which can trickle down to the state level where states are considering offering driver’s licenses to the undocumented. Is it beyond the realm of possibility that unfriendly nations send people to Mexico and to then cross the border with the hordes and then find a way to get state-issued identification which would now allow them to board airplanes, interstate buses and enter government buildings?
For those of you who voted for Obama because he seemed cooler and more in touch than John McCain, now is your chance to vote with your brain rather than someone you would like to play a pickup game of hoops with. Mitt Romney has some flaws, no doubt. He went to private schools and has possibly never mowed a lawn or picked out a head of lettuce at the grocery store, so his ability to relate to me and you is close to nil. That said, I don’t have to like my boss or my coach or my leader so long as I believe he or she can do a great job in moving us in the right direction as a country.
Let’s have Obama go down in history as a nice guy who was elected to the highest office, something like Jimmy Carter, but also be remembered for the horrible job they did while in office of not moving the economy in the correct direction and of his unwillingness to reach across the aisle to work together. Obama’s way or the highway has been to common a theme. Let’s change that on November 6th.
