Competing visions

Daily Item

---- — When we go to the polls on Nov. 6 to vote for a president, I believe it will be the most crucial election that this nation has ever faced. The 2012 presidential election presents voters with a clear choice between two fundamentally different visions for America.

If you do your own thinking then you will make a wise choice that will reverse the insanity of the past four years and elect a man who will start restoring America to its former greatness. The "greatest generation" doesn't have to be the one in the past. Together we can bring back a constitutional-based government who more closely reflect the core values that molded our nation.

What is at stake in this election? Consider a few: the possibility of unprecedented government expansion; unparalleled spending and insurmountable national debt; the continued growth of a welfare state creating more dependence on the government; increased taxation; the continued overhaul of our nation's health care system; the killing of hundreds of millions of unborn children through Obamacare and taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood; the end of marriage as we know it; the acceleration towards socialism; and a fundamental shift in the high court through Supreme Court justice nominations that will come in the next few years.

If these do not alarm you, you have not done your homework. President Obama has an agenda and it is not for a better, brighter future for America. Mitt Romney will put his heart and soul into restoring America and give us all a brighter, better future. We can trust him.

One vision for America will win — and one will lose. May it not be the vision of the one that sent word to Putin that "after the election I will have more flexibility"!
