I promised the folks at Life Full Circle Radio back in April that I would announce who I am voting for on 31 August 2012. I’ve decided to announce now.
It is my intent to cast a “No” ballot on 6 November 2012.
Neither of the major candidates, President Barack Obama nor former Governor Willard Romney, will receive my vote. The problems facing America require a radical dismantling and reconstruction of government, including the rules she is guided by and the rules she issues to regulate the behavior of her citizens and the economy.
Neither candidate has the leadership gravitas to do that. Neither candidate has even recommended doing that.
Shelling out a few billion dollars to save a few public sector jobs; cutting taxes for a favored class; or modifying financing on houses, erroneously referred to as assets, while not producing income or real wealth, are not examples of the public policy that we need to effectuate a productive, wealth creating social policy going forward.
Americans need to stop settling for gimmicks, rhetoric, and side shows. At least this American has decided enough is enough.
