Dichotomy of the American Ethos: A Very Simple Guide to Voting in November 2012

 

After all of the politicking and pomp that accompanies the months before election time, many of us tire of the incessant finger-pointing and smearing between Presidential Candidates—in 2012 it is Obama and Romney but we all expect to see in each election cycle a certain level of pandering to constituents from both political parties.

I often find myself wanting to contribute to the malaise, but recently it has been too much to bear.

However, in order to offer something to digest on ‘youropinionmatters.me’ I have boiled down the entire political debate to two distinct choices. The American People will need to spend some time thinking about which direction they want the great USA to go, and the choice is as clear as the following:

  1.  Vote for the Greater Good, which relies on an ever expanding welfare state with no predetermined limit that is eventually destined to collapse and/or burden future generations with un-serviceable debt.
  2. Vote for the American Dream, which relies on individual perseverance, resolve, hard-work, and personal responsibility.

While the two are not mutually exclusive, there has never been a starker contrast for the American People. It is up to us. What is your opinion?

 

p.s. I give readers more credit than to select a third choice: to not vote at all–whether it be because of indifference or frustration.
