With only a few days to go I think it’s high time to lay out in clear terms what is at stake. This should pretty much do the trick.
With the barest of imagination you should have no problem transmuting Reagan’s remarks from 48 years ago to the wars, bad fiscal policies, and threats to freedom we face in the present day. Stunning, huh?
Note especially the *outrageous* figures he tosses about concerning the amount of money being wasted by social welfare program back in 1964. Quaint, huh?
Amazing how timely it still is.
This means we aren’t going to solve the problems and root out bad thinking in our own lifetimes; the best we can do is hold the line and make things a little better than they are now.
So we vote for the candidate who can win and whom we believe will take us in a good direction. No, unfortunately there is no Reagan in this election, but there’s still a clear choice and a responsibility to affect the good in the short and long term.
