Regardless of how the economy looks in November, 2012, Americans must make a decision between two distinct visions. One of liberty, freedom and individual responsibility. The other in which big government takes care of all our needs where everyone has the same as everyone else, and redistributes the wealth to meet that goal.

Karl Marx advocated the abolition of private property. Whereas Ayn Rand, author of Atlas Shrugged, described redistribution clearly: "Whoever claims the right to redistribute the wealth produced by others is claiming the right to treat human beings as chattel."  and "The man who produces while others dispose of his product is a slave."

On November 6, 2012, Americans will go to the polls in perhaps the most important election in our history.  Our mainstream media shields us from the facts that do not support their ideology. This has been proven time and time again, but so many of the electorate prefer to watch their favorite reality shows, sporting events, and Hollywood propaganda, and will finally tune in to one of the Liberal media outlets a week or two before the election. How can they possibly make an informed decision?
With incessant calls from Liberals for the redistribution of wealth and the class warfare rhetoric regarding the so-called 99% against 1%, think of the words Samuel Adams, Founding Father and leader of the Boston Tea Party, wrote: "Now what liberty can there be where property is taken without consent?" and John Adams: "Property must be secured, or liberty cannot exist." WOW .. Does this sound like Samuel Adams and John Adams could have written this today? It's almost as if they anticipated a President would one day want to Redistribute the Wealth!

Thomas Jefferson's words are as pertinent today as they were when first written. "The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first."
Our Constitution established three separate branches of government to ensure that no branch could have power over another and as a way to instill a system of checks and balances. Yet now we witness the Executive Branch regularly and deliberately bypassing the Legislative Branch, with what seems to be no concern for the Constitution. The Declaration of Independence states: "Governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed."  Does our government today have the consent of the governed? Rasmussen Reports poll taken in August indicates only 17% Say U.S. Government Has Consent of the Governed.

We have come so far from the vision our forefathers set out for us. Is it too late to restore America to its founding principles and greatness? Not if we remember President John F. Kennedy in 1961:

Consider Ronald Reagan in 1982: "Evil is powerless if the good are unafraid."

Let us not be afraid. Let us vote as if our country depends on our vote.  Because it does!
