This election is not about a war on women, gay marriage,
class warfare, abortion rights, birth control pills or any other propaganda the
Obama administration can throw out. This
election is about restoring self-esteem to America. Lack of self-esteem is
immobilizing and our nation. I am
speaking of the self-esteem that helps us to get up and get going in hard
times. Not the ego (often disguised as
esteem) which is captivated by conceit, self-importance, or arrogance; instead
of empowering it holds us back from achieving success. A
government that wants to keep its citizens’ self-esteem low is a government
that is based on elitists, who believe they know what is best for everyone. It is also a government which tends to
enslave rather than liberate.
What Mitt Romney said about some of our citizens being victims is true; as many have been lead a stray by the rhetoric of those who want to keep them immobilized and stuck in a place of need. Living off of the government lowers a person's self-esteem and steals their self-reliance. Welfare is needed to support people through trying times – however it should not become a lifestyle as it robs a person of the self-esteem garnered from being a productive member of society and feeling the value of being needed.
