Inspiration

Those who know me and Noelle know that we have put in a lot of work and effort during this political season. I must tell you how I kept going. It wasn't easy, but Mitt Romney inspired me. I saw that he was a tireless worker. He could put 60 hours a week in at work, still be a Bishop or Stake President, and still take care of his family needs. I'm not nearly as busy as that and, by contrast, not as productive. Mitt's inspiration to me changed me a little bit and throughout the year. I was more productive and very active. And Noelle was supportive the entire time. Mitt Romney has inspired me to be a better American.

Similarly, I plan to do more for the needy, the infirm and the widowed. I plan to be a better Christian. I have always given to charity, as any LDS member does, but I was not always forthcoming with my time. Mitt Romney has inspired me to be a better Christian.

By contrast, I am near giving up hope. Why do I work when my pay is deducted and my efforts aren't rewarded. I can easily become a taker and let the government subsidize me. By contrast, Obama inspires me to do nothing. He inspires me to be worse person, a bitter and condescending American. He inspires me towards evil.

That is so true Machtyn. Mitt Romney inspires people to be their best. Hard-working, generous, loving and giving. Barack Obama inspires people to be selfish and greedy.

I'm still sick thinking about our future.

Machtyn do not give up. Conservative values are traditional values & are eternal. You wrote:

In six sentences, you have captured the evils of socialism. It takes away one's hope & self esteem, it removes one's motivation for a better life and the happiness of accomplishment. Socialism turns people to fear, division & despair. It turns people to crime, substance abuse, and worst of all, loosing their anchor with God.

We all have been set back today, but we will live to fight another day and be stronger for it. It will be difficult & we will face many headwinds, but surely we can turn just a few million people back to believing conservative values, or inspiring young people to our cause, or changing people's minds one by one to our side. Keep fighting, stay the course, and never surrender your soul to these tyrants.

Obama is hoping for a Domino affect.

Folks see their neighbors collecting government checks and subsidies while doing nothing for it and say...Why not me.

A perfect example is the growth of Amercans on phony disabilities. Folks giving up looking for work and looking to the government for handouts. Why work for $45,000 when you can get %50-$60,000 in government handouts........Living The American Dream under President Obama

Machtyn, despite the fact that I have a few political disagreements with you, shhhhhh, I have admired you and Noelle. I thus must thank you for all you hard work this election.

To be sure, I am not a Romneyite, nor, did I work nearly as hard as you, but ironically, I too am very disappointed and dishearted that Mr. Romney lost the elction. As a silver lining, Mr. Romney won my county and the GOP did well at the local level, but I am very disappointed that Mr. Obama won.
