About the 2012 Election: We’re Supposed to Be a Shining City on a Hill

October 15th, 2012 | Category: Life,Opinions
I could throw up a bunch of numbers and links and figures about how Democrats are better than Republicans on any issue I prefer. Both sides can do that until we all drop dead. So, I look at this election as follows…

If elected President, which candidate is most likely to HURT me.

Well, President Obama has put forth legislation to expand health care, to protect and expand Medicaid and Medicaid Services. As a person who is astonishingly physically disabled, such services are ESSENTIAL to my continued life on this planet.

Mitt Romney’s proposed policies aim to cut health care, to decimate Medicaid and Medicaid Services. He wants to lower our deficit by harming a group of people. He aims to break a promise that our founding fathers made to every single American Citizen, we were all guaranteed the right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. Destroying Medicaid destroys a person with disabilities’ chance to have chances that are promised to everyone born in this country.

America is supposed to be a shining city on a hill, a place of learning and morality and freedom. A place that protects its people, not just the wealthy and the powerful, but also the sick, the not so fortunate. America was founded with ideas and values and principals about protecting the citizens who need protecting, because doing so is the moral thing to do. Balancing a budget on the backs’ of people who need protecting, hurting some people to help others isn’t moral, doesn’t reflect American values.

Mitt Romney doesn’t seem to care about that shining city on a hill. President Obama has proven, at least to me, that he does.
