Someone Else. We are hanging on to what this country was intended to be with one hand clinging to the edge of common sense and the other urgently grasping for something that simply isn’t there. On the precipice of damaging America for generations to come, an America bearing little resemblance to the nation we have known for so long, Barack Obama seems more determined to deconstruct the America we have had for so long and to turn it into some kind of unrealistic utopia, which by definition is “An ideal and perfect place or state, where everyone lives in harmony and everything is for the best”. That is something you tell your six-year-old if he or she happen to ask you why we all exist or who God is and why did he put us here.

Someone Else. Who are you? Where are you? The utopian state is a state of communism. It has failed in so many other places for so long and now our president wants to implement it here. Socialized health care, which more than half of the states in our country are vigorously trying to fight, is the first big step towards taking money from the large majority of people who work hard in this country and giving it to the much smaller number who do not, regardless of whether they are highly unmotivated or here illegally. Our government’s solution is to continue robbing so many people of their own goals and contributions to society by sending them a check each month and, regarding the millions of illegal aliens in America, our government seeks to grant them amnesty, as though we were not already paying for their medical needs and giving them tax returns that surpass my own when they don’t even pay into the system. Ultimately, Barack Obama’s agenda points to a leveling of opportunity for all. It sounds nice and fair, but it is not the American way. If our country continues to regress into what we fought so hard to separate ourselves from over two centuries ago, then what was it all for? In America, your rewards are designed to be proportional to the hard work you invest in your goals. If you invest a lot of time and work then you reap many rewards. If you put forth little or no effort then you receive little or no reward. It has been this way for a very long time and it is not that complicated of a template to follow. These principles are being compromised, though, and even apologized for as though they were shameful or wrong.

Someone Else. Will you put America first? Will you embrace the elitism we once possessed and wield it within our own borders? Will you not tolerate other countries that laugh at and mock America? Will you continue to give them so much of our taxpayers’ money when they despise our nation? Who is Someone Else in 2012? Who will save the middle class, which is so instrumental in continuing the nation America was intended to be? In 2012, Someone Else needs to reignite the American flame that made this nation so strong and resist the convenient excuses we’ve become so used to. There are no excuses. Barack Obama would have you believe that blaming others and making excuses are a vital part of being the president of the United States of America and that our nation’s success is contingent on tenets of communism, but it is poisonous Kool-Aid. Don’t drink it.

Someone Else.

1,615.6 miles to go.
