I received a hilarious email that said reelecting Barack Obama would be like backing up the Titanic and driving it into the iceberg a second time. I laughed, and laughed, and laughed. Then I somberly realized something.
The death of America at the hands of Barack Obama is not a laughing matter.
Is "death" a bit of hyperbole? Well, that depends. (No, I'm not going to crack a joke about what the meaning of "is" is.) The Obama vision for the country is Zombie America, still walking around, but not alive. It's a place where the very much alive people are at risk of having the life sucked out of them by the tax code, the regulations, and the zombies who won't deign to work.
I was hoping someone dynamic, charismatic, and electable would show up. Alas, Ronald Reagan is dead. So instead, we get Mitt Romney.
He was by no means my first choice. That would have been Gary Johnson, before he fled to the Libertarian nomination. He believes in a lot of what I do: Reforming the tax code, auditing the Federal Reserve, school choice, standing up for Israel if they are attacked, reforming entitlements so the whole thing doesn't go bust, and creating a business-friendly environment so the economy can prosper. But there was no room for him, because there were other parts of his message that offended Republicans.
So instead, I'll be voting for Mitt. And so will a lot of other people who aren't in love with him. It isn't perfect, but it could be worse.
