Monumental Vote on November 2, 2010

Updated on September 5, 2012

2010 Mid-term Elections

Time to Restore Fiscal Sanity

This Tuesday, November 2, 2010, is probably one of the most important in the history of our great nation. Never has so much been riding on one election as the mid-term election of 2010. At stake is more out of control spending by President Obama and his socialist agenda or to bring fiscal sanity back to our nation. The national deficit continues to mount and the debt spirals out of control. President Obama has shown no fiscal restraint in an effort to shove unpopular programs down the throats of the American people. It points to one thing about this president; he is completely out of touch with the common working people. Obama thinks he knows what is best for us all. "Free" healthcare for all, free money issued to anyone with a pulse, financial reform that no one really understands and on and on of billions and billions and trillions and trillions of dollars. One question to the Obama zombies; Who's going to pay for all these Shangra-lai ideas? Like all progressives, that subject is rarely, if ever, discussed.

I'll tell you who will pay for it. All the babies born in America on November 2, 2010 will pay for it. In turn, their children will pay for Obama and the Democrats drunken spending spree for the past two years. Children not yet conceived will pay for it. This is just another reason the Democrats better rethink their position on abortion. If we keep killing the unborn, who will pay for the Democrats out of control spending habits? As of this moment as I type this hub, the federal deficit stands at 13.6 trillion dollars! If we maintain the present rate of debt, it will be nearly 20 trillion dollars by 2015. Our economy will collapse before that ever happens. The Great Depression (my grandpa always said he never understood that term....there was nothing great about it) will be a walk in the park compared to what we face now. Businesses will board up, Wall St. will collapse, and all government services will dry up. 10% unemployment will be looked at fondly as "the good old days." I implore you , if you balance a household budget, you know we can not continue spending as Obama and the Democrats have done for the past two years. It must be stopped.

On Tuesday, you have a chance to do something about this. You can pull a lever, push a button, check a written ballot to stop the Democrats from financially ruining this country even further than they already have done. If you love this country, get out and vote. According to the latest poll, less than 40% of the electorate is expected to vote this Tuesday. That is atrocious. Anything less than 50% is irresponsible as a citizen of this country. Even though I refused to vote for either Obama or McCain in 2008, I did vote for a third party candidate. The main thing is that I voted! Regardless of which political persuasion you may be, political party or whatever, get out and vote. So many American men and women have died so that we have this right. You do a disservice to their memory if you do not do your constitutional duty and vote for the candidate or party of your choice.

    James, indeed, our prayers were answered. I still believe that was tne most important election in our history. The 2012 election will be even more important.

    Great Hub! Your prayers and mine were answered. Let us hope the new Congress restores sanity to our nation. And righteousness wouldn't hurt either. :)

    breakfest pop, fiscal sanity does have a nice ring to it, doesn't it? I'll be willing to be there isn't a Democrat in the USA that could dance to it though. ;-)

    Sheri, I agree today is the day that America can turn itself around with its flirtation with socialism. It is important. Just as important is 2012 when we must vote out the first socialist president of the United States. Obama must be beaten in 2012!!!

    eovery, today is the day! It's payback time for the socialists.

    Old Poolman, if I know of someone who doesn't vote today, then complains about the government, I might literally explode. There is simply no excuse not to vote today.

    Great Hub - Can you even believe that any eligible citizen would not vote in this very important election? Yet they will be the first to gripe if the results do not go their way. I wonder if anyone has calculated what our debt per citizen is at this point in time? It would be a shocking number.
