Today is the day.
We as Americans, will not only decide our future’s destiny, but will also decide the destiny of our children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Most likely you are not overwhelmed or in love with either candidate, but you have a duty as an American citizen, who has been given freedom like no other country on earth experiences, to cast your vote for whichever candidate you deem to be The Best for our country’s future.
Yes, We the people must put aside our frustrations with candidates positions and policy and search deep into our hearts for one essential characteristic that we are sure will change America for the better. And then find the candidate that exhibits and believes strongly in the same.
Thirty years ago, America faced very similiar economic doom and lacked a clear vision for the future. A mentor of mine reminded a few of us last week that avery wise and braver man gave a speech thirty years ago, and had the conviction in his heart to follow the words he spoke.
- “There are no easy answers, but there are simple answers. We must have the courage to do what we know is morally right.”
“Within the covers of the Bible are all the answers for all the problems men face.”
“Without God, democracy will not and cannot long endure.”
“We don’t have a trillion-dollar debt because we haven’t taxed enough; we have a trillion-dollar debt because we spend too much”
“If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under.”
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”
“Freedom prospers when religion is vibrant and the rule of law under God is acknowledged.”
“Of the four wars in my lifetime, none came about because the U.S. was too strong.”
“Entrepreneurs and their small enterprises are responsible for almost all the economic growth in the United States.”
“I made a speech by that title – “A Time for Choosing” in 1964. I said ‘We’ve been told increasingly that we must choose between left or right.’
- But we’re still using those terms – left or right. And I’ll repeat what I said then in ’64.
‘There is no left or right. There’s only an up or down:’
- up to the ultimate in individual freedom, consistent with an orderly society – or down to the totalitarianism of the ant heap. And those today who, however good their intentions, tell us that we should trade freedom for security are on that downward path.”
“You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children’s children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done.”
“We are never defeated unless we give up on God.”
For me, the vote is simple. I will vote for the man who I know in my heart will never give up on God!
God Bless America
