It could be my age or my deepening conservatism, but the first Tuesday of next month is more important this year than reaching legitimate senior status when I turned sixty last March. In fact, I haven’t felt this excited about an election since I was a kid looking forward to Christmas morning.
The gift I am hoping and praying for this year will be presented by the American electorate. I am counting on them to deliver just like Santa did in the days of old. Excluding myself, I believe there are enough voters across America in the right places who don’t have the uncontrollable urge to speak out publicly or express their opinions about a lot of things, least of all matters political in nature. These are quiet, private men and women who see no value in making known their personal political or religious beliefs. They go about their daily business and toil without shooting off their mouths like I do. They exercise great restraint of the tongue and rarely express themselves beyond a friendly greeting or engaging in conversations about news, weather, and sports. They may gladly offer advice if you ask for it, but they’re not likely to volunteer it. I admire that. On the internet, these quiet observers are known as lurkers. They watch in silence, and they don’t participate in election polls.
There are millions of such citizens. They are scattered throughout heartland of America in places like Kansas, Montana, Iowa, or the Dakotas and in countless small, quiet towns that speckle our national map. They are hard-working, God-fearing, patriotic Americans who love this country and recognize the disarray and chaos that occupies the White House. They’re not buying it anymore, and they will let that be known on November 6, 2012.
Clichés like stereotypes become broadly known and repeated because they have some elements of truth to them. The tall, lanky Illinois lawyer who became the sixteenth executive to live and work at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue uttered many common sense phrases but none more prophetic as “You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.”
The third and final segment of this often-overused quote sums up with elegant simplicity why BHO will be removed from the Office of the President by a significant majority of popular and electoral votes. The fraud who now calls himself Barack Hussien Obama succeeded in accomplishing what Mr. Lincoln acknowledged possible by misleading and fooling hoards of loyal followers for nearly half a decade, but that is about to come to a glorious and welcome end.
You can take all the proclaimed scientific polls and throw them out the window. There are simply too many variables and uncontrollable circumstances to make any sample realistic or reliable. Even the most current surveys that show Mitt Romney only slightly ahead of BHO are incorrect. The only poll that counts will happen in just a couple of weeks. On that day, Americans who do not call themselves either liberal or conservative will decide who will be our next president, and his initials are not BHO.
