My angst over the re-election of Barrack Obama was compounded by some on the Conservative side blaming Mitt Romney for the loss. Some on our side tried to make the point that Mitt Romney didn't embrace the Tea Party enough and pandered to the Republican establishment too much, and that's why Barrack Obama still holds the Oval Office. But Mitt Romney is the embodiment of the American value of achievement through a strong work ethic. He articulated, fairly well in my opinion, the promise of America enshrined in our founding documents. No, the fault is not in our candidate, but in our culture.
A culture where over 50% of the people don't understand how and where prosperity is created in this country. A culture where over 50% of the people don't understand that it's been the private sector in the U.S., working in an environment dominated by freedom not government involvement, that has been able to produce wealth and advancement that has progressed the human condition more than any nation in history. A culture where over 50% of the people think that government exists, not to protect our God-given rights, but to create new rights for everything from health care to housing. A culture where over 50% of the people believe that they do not possess because others do, and they have no problem empowering government to confiscate wealth from those who have earned it and redistribute it to those who didn't. Yes, our problems are bigger than whether Mitt Romney kept his distance from the Tea Party or didn't appear on some Conservative talk show.
As a nation, we elected as our President a teleprompter over a real flesh and blood substantive man. I guarantee you that Mitt Romney's life experience and value system is more aligned with the vast majority of Americans than is the life experience and value system of Barrack Obama. And yet, over 50% of the voters in this country elected a man President who has a proven track record of implementing policy that is destructive to their own value system. This fact means that a majority of the people in this country either have a death wish, or they have been dis-informed by the very sources whose Constitutional duty it is to disseminate the truth to the people. Ignorance in this country is not by accident, it has been a deliberate political strategy by those on the left to gain and to hold power over those they have inculcated with it.
The election on this past Tuesday is proof positive that the left's decades long strategy has paid off. I think it was Ben Franklin who said, "Those who would trade their liberty for security, deserve neither liberty nor security." Over 50% of the people in this country made the conscience decision on this past Tuesday to trade their liberty for the government promise of security. Which as we all should know isn't worth the paper upon which it is written, just ask Ambassador Stevens and the three other Americans who were brutally murdered by terrorists as our newly re-elected President and members of his administration sat and watched, and did nothing. Good luck extracting their empty promises of health care and jobs from the wreckage of their rhetoric.
