The single most important issue of the 2016 presidential election is preservation of the U.S. Constitution. The greatest threat to our nation doesn’t reside in terrorist acts or global warming, but rather the growing effort to disregard or reinterpret the Constitution. The most direct threat exists in the form of a U.S. Supreme Court that will not adhere to the Constitution’s origins and meanings.
The next president will single-handedly decide the fate of liberty through his/her appointment of multiple justices. One candidate will appoint Justices that will continue to erode individual liberty and the other will appoint Justices that will uphold the Constitution on the basis of its founding principles. Individual liberty is inherent in the founding principles. Individual liberty demands individual responsibility. When individuals refuse to be responsible, government reacts by imposing laws that incrementally diminish everyone’s libe ties by either restricting choices, taking more of your income, or reinterpreting the Constitution to transfer to government more control over you.
When you do not exercise individual responsibility or do not demand individual responsibility from those with whom you come in contact or to whom you have delegated representation, You are a source of the poison killing-off individual liberty in Washington and across the nation. The 2016 presidential election clearly is not a contest of ethics or morality, but rather a battle to preserve liberty for the responsible individual. Your vote is your legacy but it establishes the destiny for millions of current and future responsible citizens.
