Day664 Saturday 06/23/12

ran 4.1 miles
Just imagine. In only 137 days President Barack Hussein Obama could be voted out of office like a lemon being returned to a dishonest car dealership. Fed up and disappointed in their purchase, a collective America could march into his office and tell him that the moment they started the car he had sold them the wheels fell off, the muffler was rusted and detached after hitting a bump on the road, and the spark plugs were not sparking. We won't be able to get our money back but we can certainly make Barack Obama drive the sorry car he sold our nation right out of his office and into the history books as the worst president in modern American history.

In nineteen weeks and four days we can fire this man. He is our leader and we have been led astray from what America represents and what it demands to maintain. Now that Barack Obama's first term is nearing an end he is finally being vetted and I think we can all agree that if the media would have done its job in 2008 then he would never have even been elected or even stood a chance in the primaries.

In only four months and fourteen days this nation is going to make a decision that will impact America for generations. We can either shred our Constitution and tear every fiber of freedom, religion, opportunity, capitalism, and success that has defined America for over two hundred years, or we can give America a swift kick in its rear end to wake it up and remind its people of everything we stand for that has obviously been forgotten.

I've been following the news and posting on this blog every single day for nearly two years. I have ran over three miles every single day for 664 days just to avoid periodic combustion due to how inexplicable the actions of our president are. The simple fact that he was ever even elected to sit in the Oval Office is an outcome I will never understand.

Over the past two years I have received a lot of oppositional comments about my views and what I am doing from individuals who support Obama. Whether it is email, blog comments, or facebook posts, the large majority of these people send messages hoping that I get hit by a bus or that I don't stop running once I hit D.C. and continue straight into the Atlantic Ocean. They suggest I should not have children. They call me a racist for being dedicated enough to run everyday for an America I believe in. Running is now racism, in case you didn't know. They troll and troll and troll away at me with the most ignorant accusations and falsehoods they can create.

After doing this for nearly two years, I can tell you this. I think both Republican and Democratic politicians are egomaniacs who do not have our best interests in their hearts. I can tell you that Mitt Romney only scares me slightly less than Barack Obama, and for that reason he has my vote. And I can tell you that neither of the two candidates you vote for during any election cycle have anything to do with what you were put here on Earth to perform. The power is in the people and it has been that way since day one of America. Our federal government, our presidents, particularly Barack Obama, have been increasing the size of government and people's dependency on it for a long time. These actions equate to less freedom and less opportunity to perform the tasks we are driven to do on our own.

What value is it to set a goal to run 1,000 miles in a year if people who are determined to run more than 1,000 miles in a year have to redistribute some of their miles to others who are not driven to run even 10 miles in a year? Am I lucky because I can run 1,000 miles in a year? Barack Obama would say I am, but I am not. I am determined. I want the reward of succeeding in difficult tasks I set for myself. I don't want a hand-out or a mile voucher that gets me out of the obligation of running each day. It's hard. It's challenging. But the reward is worth it. That reward is unfiltered freedom to make my own decisions, to successfully follow through with them, and to not have to depend on anyone else or any government to get me through each day.

We were not put on Earth to sit back and vote for some guy who campaigns on redistributing self-worth and sustenance just so we can rest our bodies on government subsidized recliners and achieve absolutely nothing at the cost of those who actually deserve self-worth and sustenance. We were put on Earth to achieve and to pave our own ways to happiness, not to sit idly by and let governments choose our ways for us. 

12.9 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day299.
