We are a Republic, for now
Dr. Milton Wolf writes:
This struggle for our liberty, this struggle to abide by the principles of our founding begins anew. We can no longer trust that Washington will save the great experiment of self-governance that is the United States of America. Just as it has always been, the fate of our republic rests in the hands of the voters.
It’s now down to this: If Barack Obama holds the White House, and if Democrats win control of either house of Congress, then Obamacare will be unstoppable, and America will become the United States of Europe. We will have sacrificed our freedom and our exceptionalism for the false promises of the government-centered society. The 2012 election just became infinitely more important.
As the adage goes, Americans get the leaders we deserve. That our generation even allowed America’s fate to rest in the hands of nine men and women who upheld a law antithetical to the concept of limited government and individual freedom is a testament of our lost way. It’s time we stop hoping for better leaders and start becoming better citizens. It’s time we deserve better leaders.
