What Tomorrow May Bring
Tomorrow, Tuesday, November 6, 2012, is election day, and the myriad of prognostications being made, as to whether Romney or Obama will be elected president of the United States, is rivaled only by the number of leaves fallen from the trees in this Fall season.
While there are, already, various scenarios imagined as to what will result from an election of Romney, or the re-election of Obama, in reality, not much will really change in the unseemly world of politics, a world of favor and vote buying, outrageous campaign promises, and wholesale pillaging of the American people by their supposed political betters.
The best result the American people can hope for tomorrow, or pray for if they are so inclined, is that the dissatisfaction being expressed at the overreaching role of government in their personal and business lives is not some shortlived, presidential campaign soundbite induced illusion of change in what government’s role actually will be in their lives. Unless the American people clasp, with their hearts and minds, with the same fervor as they would clasp their child to their breasts to protect them from harm, the ideas of limited government, individual liberty, and compulsion free societal interaction, this election, as with many of our past elections, will have been simply a really big show, a Beltway production which had a good run, but changed nothing. The politicians are not going to change a thing in the political arena unless the American people, individually, change themselves first and foremost.
