Listen up: This is an emergency! Four years ago, Barack Obama's campaign slogan was "Hope and Change." Well, guess what? Too many Americans who are without jobs, others who can not earn enough to support their families, others who have retired and find their savings dwindled by economic disappointment due to mismanaged government, students who see no future jobs, citizens, who fear for our security in this terror fueled world, future generations burdened with a minimum $16 trillion debt, our country is tipping toward hopeless.
Change - what change? Our democracy is fast turning into a socialist country, when those in Europe have proven that socialism doesn't work. We can not let our founding fathers down, they gave us a constitution to limit government and encourage the individual to seek life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness: All our past generations have been willing to work hard, play by the rules, praise success and enjoy the fruits of our labor. As parents and grandparents, we encourage our offspring to study hard, compete in sports, in music, art and science, challenge ourselves and reach for the stars. If we take the incentive of success away, we will become homogenized. We must let the cream of the crop rise and set the example that performing well in whatever we choose will be rewarded not discouraged.
No, we do not want socialism. We want people to strive to be their best and earn good success; because human nature shows that successful people are more apt to share their wealth willingly, not forced by government.
This I sincerely encourage you - the American voters, to "Believe in America" and elect Mitt Romney for president of the United States of America 2012 and let's return our country to its former constitutional self.
