Tomorrow, Americans will go to the polls. I think it is pretty safe to say that this will be the most important mid-term election in my lifetime so far. The choices are pretty clear, and Americans are pretty ticked off. They have a right to be. Unemployment is at 10%, small businesses are not hiring, expanding, or buying new equipment, because come January they expect the largest tax hike in the nation's history to kick in, not to mention expecting to raise the cost of insuring their employees exponentially to to pay for a massive takeover of healthcare that 70% of Americans do not want.
I think that a lot of people believe that our freedoms are slowly being eroded away by a government that continues to become larger and larger. A lot of people for the first time do not believe that they will be leaving a country for their children that will be better than the one that was handed down to them.
Americans are an independent breed by nature.We like our choices to be just that, OUR choices. They do not want to be told how much mayo to put on a sandwich, and whether or not it has to be fat-free, or what kind of light bulbs to put in their house. We just want to be left alone to do what Americans have always been best at-creating prosperity.
One of my father's favorite sayings was, "remember that when you vote." Don't worry...we will.
