Tomorrow... Opportunity Awaits
Rational Nation USA
Tuesday November 2, 2010. Election day... A day when this nation has the opportunity to once again make it's voice heard.
Our founding fathers with all their intellectual brilliance insured that the voice of the PEOPLE of this nation would be heard every two years. The power of the ballot box, gained by the valor and blood of American patriots should not be taken lightly.
The dismal voter turnout of the American people in this day and age defies all logic. The right, and the privilege to elect our representatives can only be sustained by the active involvement of the American electorate.
November 2, 2010 is shaping up to possibly be a pivotal year in our nation's history. It has the potential to either be a year of significant and fundamental change in the direction of the past 20 years, or be just another day in which the established power structure in Washington has its day again.
The choice is with you the people. To change the course of this nation, and indeed history itself requires those who desire and cherish liberty to get out and vote. Not vote a party line. Not vote the conventional wisdom of the pundits. Not vote the drumbeat of any particular ideology. Rather it requires thinking people to vote their conscience.
The Constitutional Convention was not unlike the times we live in today. Passionate and patriotic people of differing ideas came together and created perhaps the greatest document in the history of governance. Ideological differences were every bit as pronounced then as they are today. The stakes were every bit as high as they are they are right now.
The difference between then and now... The founders had the wisdom and ability to craft a workable compromise based on sound rational principles, and in the process insure 234 years later we still have the right to govern ourselves.
It is just my opinion but neither the elected officials nor the general population posses the wisdom and love of liberty that our founders did. For if they did surely the voter turnout would be in the 90 percentile rather than the dismal turnout we have seen over the past 40 years.
The vote is still yours people. Use it or lose it. The choice is yours. Regardless of your political leanings please please get out and vote tomorrow, November 2, 2010. History is waiting!
