An Appeal to the "Undecideds"

At this late stage of the game, if you truly can't make up your mind about which candidate to vote for, if you cannot plainly see the stark differences between the war hero/seasoned adult and the empty-suited adolescent with Marxist leanings, or understand that the very survival of our republic rests heavily upon an engaged and informed electorate, then do us all a favor and stay home on Election Day. Yes, you have a right to vote, but you also have an obligation to pay attention to the facts. And frankly, if all Americans were actually bothering to investigate and observe, there would be no "undecided" voters. For crying out loud...wake up, people!

It just blows my mind that a mere seven years after 9/11, there is a very high probability of my fellow countrymen handing over the safety and security of the greatest nation on earth to a man who would sit down without preconditions with psychotic dictators who want nothing more than our total destruction. How could anyone possibly come away from Friday night's debate with the impression that Obama won? He was clearly in over his head, scowling, interrupting, stuttering and otherwise displaying a gross misunderstanding of the USA and the dangerous world in which we live. Here we are, on the brink of proclaiming victory in Iraq, and because too many citizens possess a "me first" attitude of entitlement, wherein the government exists solely to dole out largesse, Obama has a real clear shot at the White House.

Memo to undecideds: The Constitution recognizes your God-given right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It doesn't guarantee you the right to unlimited credit, health insurance or even a job. There are some rare concepts known as a good work ethic, self-reliance and self-motivation. Perhaps you should give those a try while you're networking with your friends on MySpace and accepting every spoonful of biased coverage the mainstream media feeds you.

Government exists to keep you free so you can go after your dreams -- that includes "providing for the common defense" in the form of the best Military in the world. A vote for Obama guarantees a huge cut in defense spending and a rush towards socialism. Oh, and it also ensures that all of the progress we've made in Iraq, courtesy of brave, honorable soldiers and their leadership, will be for naught, as the first thing Obama will do is cut-and-run from success and gut Military spending in favor of his pet projects. Is that what you really want? Are you so enamored by the idea of electing a black man as President of the United States that any black man will do, whether good for the country or not?

And here's another fact to mull over: universal healthcare and socialism have been abject failures everywhere they've been tried -- just ask a Canadian or a Brit. Do you really want a government bureaucrat dictating to you and your doctor the terms of your medical care? While we're on the topic, do any of you actually know who pays for such a boondoggle? Nah, didn't think so.

Well, I've given you a lot to digest here, though there's a whole lot more to consider. But if you have no interest in reality, I beg you again -- just stay home on November 4!
