I'm addressing this post primarily to those who insist on either sitting out this election or voting for a 3rd-party Don Quixote because they erroneously - or perhaps stubbornly - avow the opinion that there is no difference between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama when it comes to life/morality issues. Their refusal to look at the facts of this election - particularly Obama's past deeds - and to acknowledge the necessity of removing this man from office causes me to doubt the wisdom of these individuals. I know others are wincing as they read this, believing that I should couch my thoughts in more delicate terms. I respectfully disagree. The stakes in this election are way too high; it's high time the kid gloves came off.
In addition to what I've posted previously, others on Facebook have issued statements. Here is one from abortion-survivor Gianna Jesson.
Here's one that might be a bit hard to swallow, but there's much truth in it.
Why "selfish"? I don't know why the creator of that graphic used that term, but in some discussions I've actually read some pretty strange things. One person said, "my vote is about my conscience". I can name that person. At any rate, the statement basically says "my vote is about me and how I feel; forget the larger picture and the consequences of my actions on the country." Is it selfishness? Poorly formed conscience? Some combination? I think many folks fall into that rut. I beg them to snap out of it, look beyond themselves and do what needs to be done November 6th to save this country. That means vote for Romney!
