WHY IS ROMNEY DRAWING OVERFLOW CROWDS WITH ENTHUSIASTIC PEOPLE WALKING
MILES TO GET A GLIMPSE OF THE REPUBLICAN CHALLENGER TO OBAMA?

While Obama is drawing substantially smaller crowds of mostly "captive audiences" like college students, union hacks, and bussed-in astroturf organized groups some of whom are PAID to be there ...

It's NOT simply about Mitt Romney and Barack Obama.

It's about HOPE ... hope that they can save this country from the march to authoritarian rule.

It's about HOPE ... that they can turn this ship of state back toward constitutional self-governance.

It's about HOPE that America can become AMERICA again and not be fundamentally transformed into some utopian socialist fairy tale society ruled by an elite class of professional politicians and bureaucrats.

It's about HOPE that they can send a message to the now virtually state-run news media that they cannot FOOL US by protecting this president and hiding the truth about what is happening in this country here and abroad.

It's not about a single man.

It's about US and this country that is hated by so many because it was constructed to give power to the PEOPLE and not to temporary politicians and mob rule.

It's because a majority of people believe in the concept of The United States of America, her Constitution, her rule of law, her balance of powers, her republican constructs and REJECT dictates from individuals and groups bent on grabbing power from US so that THEY can impose THEIR will on society.

The crossroads are now less than two weeks away and for this sitting president, even after being called out on his lies during the debate, even by many of his OWN SUPPORTERS, it is business as usual as he REPEATS the lies about Benghazi, GM, Planned Parenthood, taxes and spending, and on and on and on.

Because the truth matters not to demagogues ... only winning.

NEVER has a president acted like this man has ... recently, as reported in Politico today, even stooping to his local Chicago-style tactics in calling his opponent a bullshitter!

Ironic, isn't it?

No ... it is not about simply putting one man in ... it's about removing this individual and putting another individual in who will act like a president in the interests of the country and not to advance some angry, ideological, utopian pipe-dream.

And I'm ready to hold the new president's feet to the fire ... God willing.
