What The Election Is Really All About

In its simplest, clearest (and perhaps crudest) terms the upcoming presidential election comes down to this: Will we be a nation of makers or takers?
That's what it boils down to.
Because we are rapidly approaching the tipping point. We are rapidly approaching the point where more people in America will be receiving benefits without working as opposed to working and earning their own keep.
In other words, the makers are about to be in the minority and they will be supporting an ever-growing population of takers.
When more people take than make, Big Fat Bloated Nanny-State Government has won. The fight is effectively over. The scales have been tipped.
And when you owe your very livelihood -- your very existence -- to the government, then you've basically lost your freedom. Government then is no longer of, by and for the people but rather it's ON the people -- on top of them, all over them, all around them in a suffocating mass of dependence.
Remember: A government that's big enough to give you everything you want is powerful enough to take away everything you need.
Makers or takers?
Will we make our own goods and services once again or keep taking (buying) from other nations, and at a higher and higher cost to ourselves and our nation?
Will we achieve energy independence by tapping the resources right here in our own country or will we remain dependent on foreign sources, thus compromising our strength and independence throughout the world?
Makers or takers?
Will we make the bold decisions that we need to make to put out fiscal house in order, cut costs and lower the deficit or will we continue to borrow our way into deeper and deeper debt and take the future away from our children and grandchildren?
Makers or takers?
Will we make our own destiny or take orders from others?
Will we make a new, thriving,robust economy based on the power of hard work, rugged individualism and free enterprise or will we take the present situation and accept it as the new norm?
Will we make up our own minds, realize our own power and renew the highest ideals of our Founders or will we take the word of the Obamatons and the dominant media and simply resolve ourselves to the notion that there is nothing more that we can do and accept the idea of America as a nation whose time has passed?
This is the Big Decision that we are facing.
This is really what the election is all about.
This is why it's probably the most important election in our lifetimes.
Will we make or merely take?
Will we thrive or barely survive?
Will we continue to achieve or quietly take our leave?
The choice is ours.
