In sixteen days, choices will be made that will alter the future of this country and of all the countries of the world.
There is, in my opinion, no single social event more "world changing" than the election of the President of the United States of America. This one event will alter the trajectories of billions of lives. This one event will usher in a new era affecting the lives of virtually every man, woman and child on this globe.
No other position on earth has the capacity to effect so much change. No other office has the global influence that this one holds. Like him or not, this one person will impact your life.
I am astounded to hear that so many persons are planning on withholding their votes. I have heard from so many that "my vote will not matter" and "there are no good choices" and "I am so sick of politics".
I ask these persons specifically to think on that a little longer.
Your vote, or the lack thereof, will decide the decision maker for world changing events. Your vote, or the lack thereof, will have an impact of far reaching consequence. Your vote, or the lack thereof, is crucial to the world population and the future of our global cultures.
The following is from Wikipedia:
"Elections for the United States Senate will be held on November 4, 2008, with 35 of the 100 seats in the Senate being contested. Thirty-three seats are regular elections; the winners will be eligible to serve six-year terms from January 3, 2009 until January 3, 2015 as members of Senate Class II. There are also two special elections: one in Wyoming and another in Mississippi; the winners will serve the remainder of terms that expire on January 3, 2013, as members of Senate Class I.
The 2008 presidential election, many gubernatorial elections, and elections for all House of Representatives seats will occur on the same date, as well as many state and local elections.
The current composition of the Senate, going into the 2008 election, consists of 49 Republicans, 49 Democrats, and two independents (Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Joe Lieberman of Connecticut, who both caucus with Democrats). Of the seats up for election in 2008, 23 are held by Republicans and 12 by Democrats."
In this country, I believe, there is no one consequnce to consider more gravely than that the next President will, in all likelyhood, nominate from 1-3 Supreme Court Justices and untold numbers of Federal District Court Judges.
If the Senate elections result in a filibuster proof majority by the Democrats, and Senator Obama is elected as President, he will face no challenges by the Senate on his appointments. It is a certainty that he will appoint extreme liberal candidates, that they will be confirmed by the liberal controlled Senate and that the Supreme Court will attain a liberal majority. It is equally certain that these liberal activist Justices will turn the Constitution of the United States "on its ear".
The Executive Branch, The Legislative Branch and the Judicial Branch would be of one mind, one philosophy, one trajectory; for years to come. Totalinarianism won't be pretty for anyone not in control, even those who currently plan to cast ignorant and emotional ballots in that direction.
I am asking you to give grave consideration to these arguments and, if you should agree, to pass them on to everyone you know, asking them to make the same considerations and forwarding. It is not now too late for a groundswell of support to move John McCain into the office of President, but it may soon be.
No, John McCain is not perfect and he is not the one I would have selected as our next President. I do believe however, for moral minded Americans, that he is our only choice now.
Your vote matters.
May God bless you and your family and may God have mercy on America,
