All presidential elections in America are important, but the one that takes place tomorrow, November 6, 2012, will represent a pivotal day in American history. On November 6th America will choose between once again pursuing the vision of the Founding Fathers or pursuing the vision of leftwing radicals who reject everything the Founders believed in and sacrificed to establish. One vision will lead America back to economic prosperity and moral superiority. The other will lead America over the cliff into an abyss of economic ruin and moral decay. When Americans walk into the voting booth on November 6th they will confront a fork in the road of American history. One path leads to economic prosperity and global strength. The other leads to economic ruin and global impotence.
In a speech to the Republican State Convention in June, 1858, Abraham Lincoln borrowed directly from the Holy Bible in warning his audience that “A house divided against itself cannot stand.” America at the time was a nation divided over the issues of state’s rights and slavery. America is once again a “house divided.” But the issue dividing America today is the question of what kind of nation we want to be. Americans who enter the voting booth on November 6, 2012 will have an opportunity to choose between two vastly different visions for America.
Perhaps nothing better illustrates the two different worldviews in our divided nation better than what occurred in August, 2012 at Chick-Fil-A restaurants throughout America. One group of people turned out by the thousands to support Chick-Fil-A for speaking up for traditional marriage, basic Christian values, and the First Amendment. The other group attacked Chick-Fil-A for refusing to toe the line of liberal orthodoxy and support the homosexual agenda. There are stark differences between these two groups and the kind of America they want.
