Our neighbors are the real issue--if we educate each other, and reassume responsibility for our own destiny, we can elect honorable people to office, reduce the size and scope of government, and reestablish constitutional rule.
Who's with me!
I think your friend has it exactly right: "... I'm afraid he'll be the LAST American president." Give him huge thanks for articulating things so well.
I'm reminded of Eomer in the LoTR movie "The Two Towers," where he tells Aragorn "Look for your friends, but do not trust to hope, it has forsaken these lands." He fights, but he's realistic about what is happening as well.
And hopeless doesn't mean unhappy, at least in my case. Know that many of us are fighting, and understand the seriousness of what we have allowed to happen.
Bless you for being such a staunch supporter of his.
Liberty is the big tent, our primary unifier. Liberty--not special treatment for homosexuals, or Christians, or manufacturers.
Economic Liberty--the dollar in my pocket is my dollar, completely. If I choose to live in America, I cede a small portion to the government for constitionally-supported activities, things that we the people cannot best do ourselves.
Religious Liberty--pursue my faith when and how I wish, in the public square or otherwise.
Political Liberty--I am free to speak and argue and to choose whomever I wish for public office, and the laws of the nation must support free and fair elections (think voter ID).
We have no candidate in 2012 that supports liberty, without some big-government tyrannical twist. If we win, and I no longer have any hope we will, though I, too, will fight, our president will be a holding pattern until we can nominate a conservative patriot in 2016. This is the reason I can vote for Romney, or Newt, or Santorum.
What was the wisdom in this interview?
