Vote wisely

Posted: Monday, Oct 1st, 2012

The country is in desperation.

I am writing this letter to the people of this community and to surrounding areas to help people make a good, wise decision when they go to the voting booth to elect a new president.

President Reagan’s Farewell Address to the Nation, Jan. 11, 1989:

“My fellow Americans – This is the 34th time I’ll speak to you from the Oval Office and the last. We’ve been together eight years now, and soon it’ll be time for me to go. But before I do, I want to share some thoughts, some of which I’ve been saving for a long time.

“It’s been the honor of my life to be your president. So many of you have written the past few weeks to say thanks, but I could say as much to you. Nancy and I are grateful for the opportunity you gave us to serve.

“… It’s been quite a journey this decade and we held together through some stormy seas and at the end, together we are reaching our destination. So common sense told us that when you put a big tax on something the people will produce less of it. So we cut the people’s tax rates and the people produced more than ever before. The economy bloomed like a plant that had been cut back and could grow quicker and stronger – for economic program brought about the largest peacetime expansion in our history: real family income up, the poverty rate down, entrepreneurship booming, and an explosion in research and new technology.

“We’re exporting more than ever, American industry became more competitive and at the same time, we summoned the national will to knock down protectionist walls abroad instead of erecting them at home.

“Common sense also told us that to preserve the peace, we’d have to become strong again after years of weakness and confusion. Se we rebuilt our defense and this New Year we toasted the new peacefulness around the globe. … And so, goodbye, God bless you and God bless the United States of America.”

A friend shared the following with me just recently: “In happy moments, praise God. In difficult moments, seek God. In quiet moments, trust God. In every moment, thank God.” – Brian Clay, Olympic athlete.

There is so much strife today I’m afraid we will have a civil war if President Obama gets re-elected. If you want a free community where you now live, go to the polls Nov. 6 and vote Mitt Romney.
