When you step into the voting booth on November 2, you will make the most important decision of your life. You’ll literally be voting on your future – or, more precisely, whether or not you and your country will have one.
Would you like to live in Cuba, own a business in Venezuela or have the civil liberties of an Iranian? Without a radical reversal of course, those happy fates could be yours.
Think of the watershed elections of our lifetime – Nixon-McGovern (1972), Reagan-Carter (1980), The Contract With America (1994), and Bush-Gore (2000). None even comes close to the importance of what will happen in less than two weeks.
You won’t just be voting for a House member and, in some cases, a Senator. You won’t just be voting on whether Nancy Pelosi (“We have to pass the bill so you can find out what’s in it”) remains Speaker of the House, or whether Harry Reid (town meeting protestors are “evil-mongers”) is still the Senate Majority Leader.
You will be voting on whether Obama will still have a rubber-stamp Congress on January 3, 2011 – where a Democratic majority (liberal pod people) vote robotically for whatever economy-annihilating measures the administration dreams up.
If you want a snapshot of Obama’s vision of America (a Kodak moment from Hell), consider the political mutants who descended on our nation’s capital on October 2 to push his agenda.
Along with the usual assortment of labor hacks, educrats and racial guilt-mongers, One Nation Working Together included the Communist Party USA, the Democratic Socialists of America, the American Muslim Association (People for the Jihad Way), the U.S. Campaign to End the (alleged) Israeli Occupation, and the National Council of La Raza (The Race).
If these are the people you want to chart our national destiny, then, by all means, vote Democratic this year. Then put a bullet in your brain – so you won’t have to live in their America.
On the other hand, if you have an ounce of survival instinct, you’ll vote Republican. Not that some Republicans don’t want to make you tear your hair out.
But, basically, it comes down to this: With Republicans, there’s a chance of saving America. With Democrats – no chance. Compared to America with Obama and a Democratic Congress in charge, a snowball in Hell is the odds-on favorite.
Instead of a chicken in every pot, the Democrats’ slogan should be “A mosque on every block and an unemployment insurance office just down the street.”
With an unemployment rate of 9.6%, we lost another 95,000 jobs in October. The unemployment rate has been above 9% for 16 consecutive months. If you include those who work part-time because they can’t find full-time jobs and people who’ve given up looking for work, the real unemployment rate is 17.1%.
In 2007, before a Democrat-controlled Congress crafted the current recession, the economy was growing at 3% a year, 1.33 million new jobs were created, and unemployment was 4.6%. (Obama calls this the “mess” he inherited from his predecessor.) I’m hard at work on my latest opus, Economics for Clueless Community Organizers.
