“Father had his full share of that profound conviction which lies so close to the headwaters of the American spirit: the conviction that if in the end the world is saved from disaster the saving will be done in America and by Americans.” So wrote Civil War historian and writer, Bruce Catton of his father. Bruce Catton continues: “As a people whose ideas about the cosmos have at least in part an Old Testament base, we have a deep suspicion that we are the chosen people. This feeling is in fact one of the most powerful forces in American life, and now and then it leads to interesting happenings. It frequently makes us hard to live with, and it bewilders a great many people - including, often enough, ourselves. Or every so often it impels us to take drastic action, and a subconscious belief in mission is not always accompanied by the sense to make a sound choice of the sort of action that is required.” No better time than now offers itself to make a sound, common sense choice this November in the voting booth. Bruce reminds us: “But whether we act wisely or foolishly, we always feel that what we do is important to the whole world wide world and not just ourselves, and the responsibility runs all the way down to the conscience of the individual.” So do not sin against your values - vote Obama out!
