It is with a huge sigh that I write this:
I knew this would happen, I predicted it months ago. I will say it once and get it over with; I told you so.
What a disappointment the elections were this year. We have one of the worst presidents in history and the best contender we could come up with was Mitt Romney who was essentially the same on every level.
So America voted for the lesser of two evils once more, and evil prevailed. Some thought the lesser evil was Romney, and the others thought it was Obama. It was a near even split.
If the republican establishment hadn’t been so corrupt; Ron Paul would have been nominated and would have won by a landslide. Mitt Romney did nothing to energize the youth base, and indeed many senior conservatives shunned the youth vote altogether. I guess you get what you pay for.
Even if you add up all the Gary Johnson votes to the Mitt Romney votes, Obama still wins. So you can’t go blaming those of us who voted on true principles for that.
I could go on and on about how I told you so, and why Ron Paul would have been better, and how he would have won, but I’ve already mentioned all that in my previous articles. If you want; you can go look through my archives; its all there.
So where do we go from here?
I guess the silver lining is that the Tea Parties will still be around, and people will remain awake. One thing that concerned me about a potential Romney win was that many people would go back to sleep with a conservative as president.
I’m not going to rehash old debates and articles, all my viewpoints are out there for you to see already. What we need to do from here on out is to concentrate on local elections. We need to cut spending locally, we need to lower taxes, cut city regulations, we need to (dare I say it) stimulate our local economies from the bottom up. Forget President Obama, the heck with him, the heck with the democrats and even the corrupt republicans. Concentrate on local issues, and get your own personal finances in order.
Presidents don’t create jobs, the federal government is not all powerful, even if it claims to be. Are you going to let a bunch of looters take your guns? Take your rights? Take your voice? Hell no! Speak up, speak out, write blogs, express your viewpoints. Be proactive. Get out there and do something. Heck run for office yourself if you have the time and sense to do it.
Yes, OK, Obama is back in, but so what? America has not ended. It only ends if you end it, if you give up, if you give in. Who cares about the left vs the right? Concentrate on your own affairs, and work with like minded people at the local level.
Everything will be alright in the end if we learn to set aside our differences and work together in a constructive manner to build the future.
I might have said I told you so, but at least we can all learn from the last year and build from there. The future is ours for the building, and no Barack Obama or Mitt Romney is going to stop us!
