In the past I have talked about the political divisions we have in America. I have looked beyond partisan politics, and see that America is divided between patriots and loyalist. Patriots love their country, and loyalist are loyal to a person, cause or an organization.My theory has been called simplistic, and I have been accused of using political labels. Then again the debate about using labels is very senseless. The other day I heard of anew division in America. They are the takers and the makers.
This year's election is defiantly a struggle between the makers and the takers. The makers are the ones who desire less government, and want to reach the American dream. They wish to reach their goals and not be punished through regulations and heavy taxation. On the other hand, the makers are dependent on society and see government as the answer.
Before Teddy Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson ,America was a Maker Society. Once this nation was a leader in inventions, entrepreneurship, and limited government. The United States was a unique county. Today we are now in a Taker Society, and America is now more European. Both parties can be blamed for this transition. The bailouts of Bush and Obama took this nation into a debt that will take generations to pay. Still we have hope.
In this year's election we have candidates who wish for America to return to a Maker Society status. I encourage everyone to look for candidates who support less government, and want to restore America to a Maker Society. Don’t look at party identification, read the platforms. Also don’t vote for a personality. Vote for America!
