I worry about the outcome of this election and the survival of our Republic.
Of course, there is a wild card in all of this; a potent wild card that no cheap Chicago political game can beat: engagement by the American people.
Regardless of what the Romney campaign does or doesn't do where achieving victory is concerned, if the American people engage their fellow citizens, if we decide to disseminate the facts, argue the positions, ask the questions – and demand specific answers, from our fellow citizens, we can wake those among us who have been coasting along for the last four years believing that the man in the Oval Office, who is literally transforming our nation from a Constitutional Republic to a nation of Democratic Socialism, the man who uses the Marxist political slogan “Forward” in his attempt to affect a second term, is the man best suited to rescue our Republic from oblivion.
At this point, we could wring our hands and exclaim in wonderment about why Mr. Romney’s campaign seems to be non-existent, or – or – we can take on the campaign to save our Republic ourselves. As Paul Ryan said in his vice presidential nomination acceptance speech, “We can do this!” All it takes is the gathering of facts, a wee bit of patience with those who are blinded by the false back lighting of “The One,” and a dedication to the preservation of our Republic, “with liberty and justice, for all.”
Go for it, Oly.
Citizen engagement is essential.
Best of luck to you.
