Framing the Choice for Voters in November
There will be a clear choice of direction in November. It is simple so anyone can understand it. No need to wonder about details because the principles are telling.
Vote for Obama if you believe: Government is the answer to all of our problems. Individuals are not capable of caring for themselves. Business is fundamentally evil and must be heavily regulated to ensure fairness. Free markets are not fair. Everyone should share in misery no one should be able to celebrate individual success. Community trumps the individual. The US Constitution is a living document which means it is bound to die.
Vote for Romney if you believe: Government has a limited role and is the current cause of most problems. Individuals should be allowed to succeed or fail on their own. Business, especially small business is the engine for economic success and will act according to market principles and needs limited regulation. Free markets are the fairest arbiter of success and failure. Every individual deserves to keep the rewards of their hard work. Success breeds compassion. Individual rights trump community wants. The US Constitution is the rules we all need to follow which are based on principles of human nature that do not change. It is the foundation of our success.
This is the choice in a nutshell. The rest is just blah, blah, blah…
