Election Day 2012

by Steve Mona on Mon, Nov 5 2012 10:51 PM



Well Folks here it is, Election Day 2012. It seems like the campaign has been going on forever. Elaine is happy that it is almost over as she has accused me of being obsessed with the election and the media coverage of it. She's right, I have been obsessed. I honestly believe that this is the most important election in my lifetime. I'm worried about my country and the direction it is heading in. I see places like Greece and I don't think it's hyperbole to think it could happen here. Socialism doesn't work in practice although it sounds wonderful in theory.

It will come as no surprise to anyone that knows me that I'm voting for Mitt Romney. I was not thrilled with the Republican field this year and I was more voting against President Obama, with whom I agree on little, than I was voting for the Republican nominee no matter who it was.

But like many, in the closing months, I went from anti-Obama to pro-Romney. I am enthusiastically voting for Governor Romney today. I will be voting for the love of my country while the President encourages his supporters to vote for revenge. Revenge against whom Mr. President? Against those who dare to disagree with you? You promised on election day in 2008 that you'd win over those of us who didn't vote for you then. Mr. President I wanted you to succeed, I wanted you to win me over. You stood at the podium and said, "And to those Americans whose support I have yet to earn, I may not have won your vote tonight, but I hear your voices. I need your help. And I will be your president, too." But that was a lie. You came to Washington with no intention of being my President and no intention of working with anyone but those who agreed with you. It's become a mantra to blame the Republicans in Washington for your failures; to accuse them of refusing to work with you. The truth is Mr. President you came in with a "my way or the highway" attitude. "I'll work with anyone that does what I want them to" is your legacy.

What started out as a promise of a new day has turned into something ugly and mean spirited. I see in your facial expressions and body language and I hear in your words the contempt you hold for those who dare to think differently. Mitt Romney convinced me to support him; you've done nothing but prove that support is well founded.  

There are many who have worn the uniform of their country and/or community who have died in defense of the laws that make our country great.Voting is one of the most sacred things we can do in this country. Our ballots are stained with the blood of patriots who fought and died to protect that most sacred of rights. I wish, as someone who has worn a uniform that I could simply take the high road and say that no matter who you are voting for please get out and vote. But this election is too important for me to take the high road, especially when the President "of all Americans" urges his supporters to vote for revenge and one of his advisers says, "it's payback time." So I'll take the low road. If you support the President please stay home today. We've tried it your way for four years and we cannot afford four more. We'll take it from here...
