I have heard many people, especially here at Hillsdale, say they are afraid for America today. Most of them say this because they fear Obama getting elected. I believe it does not matter who has more votes when the polls close tonight. My fear for America will go on, no matter who gets elected. Things made a change for the worse before any of us, or our parents, were born. Until people in America embrace freedom and realize the coercive state is feeding them nonsense, things will be no better.
“There was once a dream that was America. And friends, this is not it. This is not it.”
I will leave you with what Anthony Gregory, a research analyst from the Independent Institute, wrote today:
You might think you’re voting against the war or tax hikes, but it will instead be counted as just another voice of unity behind the dictatorial mandates of the chosen leader. There is an awful lot to complain about. If you have fundamental disagreements with American politics, reject the whole system. So long as most Americans are swindled by the promises of mass democracy and distracted by its insanities, we cannot be free. So long as national unity is seen as a goal to be pursued through nationalism and the coercive central state, we will be needlessly divided.
