It seems that in the last four or five elections I have heard multiple times the saying “This is the most important election of our lives.” Well it is. Because at every stage of our lives, regardless of when that happens to be, the election of the President of the United States and the Cabinet he heads up, determines the outlook for the country, and often, the world stage.
How can one person have so much power? Because we have allowed him that power. The people of this country determined that one man (or woman) would lead us in the direction we are to travel for those four years. Now it is time to re-assess the last four years and determine if we want to continue on that path, or chance directions.
As a Sunday School teacher and somewhat public persona, I have hesitated at voicing my opinion about the election in respect for those who do not share my same ideas. But there comes a time when we must take a stand for what is morally right and immorally abhorrent. None of us would stand by and watch as someone’s life was taken and do nothing. Yet the power that will be given to the medical profession if Obama care is enacted, may do that very thing.
If we only look to other countries who have adopted socialized medical systems, we can see the horrors that have resulted. Long lines, uncaring doctors who are basically government employees, and the elderly who are denied medical care completely. Is this really what we want for our parents–and eventually for ourselves?
The reasons to “make a change” are numerous. Please take time to day to vote–it’s time to make a change.
