Ft. Hood and the Presidential Election

Ft. Hood and the Presidential Election

Tomorrow is the third anniversary of the Ft. Hood shooting. It is also Election Day.

Are you going to vote for the guy who called it “work place violence”?

While both candidates have focused on the national debt, the economy and health care, both sides telling us this election will determine the course of the country for many years if not decades to come, none of these issues really matter.

With a Commander-in-Chief who refuses to name our enemies as our enemies for fear of insulting them, there won’t be a United States of America to leave to our children. There are people in this world who hate us and don’t distinguish between Republican and Democrat. They hate us because we are Americans. They hate us because we believe in freedom of choice, freedom of and from religion, freedom of speech and that quaint notion that girls are as deserving of education, of the right to determine their own destiny in life as are boys.

Sometimes, it really is that simple. Sometimes, the choice really does come down to one issue. Defend us from our enemies, so we can have a country to leave to our children. President Obama, you swore an oath on our Constitution to protect us from all enemies, foreign and domestic. To do that, you have to be willing to name our enemies.

    Born and bred in Chicago, now living in the wilds of far suburbia. I'm a Gold Star Mom, a wife and step-mom to two terrific boys. My views are generally politically and socially conservative, though I am far from a Party line Republican. I believe in this country, our Constitution and above all, in the right of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I believe our government is supposed to serve the people, not tell them how to live. To me, this is just common sense, but since it seems to be a minority opinion, it has become "Uncommon Sense".
