The 2012 Presidential election brings our nation to a pivotal point in history and I don’t believe that overstates the present time.
We face a critical choice, with a disastrous economy, a battered financial foundation, drastically reduced civil liberties, a porous border and a 40 year stain on our nation’s conscience as the backdrop.
Our nation’s leaders would have us believe that there is only one choice and that if we don’t choose A, we are stuck with the disaster that will be B, regardless of which side of the equation they claim to be on. They threaten and harangue us with visions of Teddy Roosevelt and Ross Perot, if we dare to look for the rest of the multiple choice answers.
Granted, it has been 150+ years since our nation has seen a 3rd Party candidate who truly “gets it” and understands that if we don’t address all of the above issues, our nation’s future will be not just dramatically different but potentially non-existent. Not only was that candidate also a first time candidate, Abraham Lincoln had never won office before and was representing a political party that had NO significant presence in the halls of power in our nation’s Capital!
Some say that since we’ve never heard of this candidate, it must be a wasted vote. They ask where are all his signs, placards, bumper stickers, billboards, radio and TV ads. Yet these same people bemoan the nearly $1 Billion that will be spent by the 2 major parties, as an effort to “buy the vote”!
I simply want to know why they are looking for answers in the same places that led to the mess in which we find ourselves. It seems to me, that is the definition of insanity.
Tom Hoefling represents a party, America’s Party, that is founded upon our nation’s ideals and seeks to call all Americans to join with each other in re-creating that “Shining city upon a hill”, that so many have forgotten.
Tom Hoefling’s personal platform is the same as America’s Party’s platform, something not all of our opponents can claim, as they try to be all things to all people. Of course, these candidates can fool all of the people some of the time, but it becomes much harder to fool all of the people, all of the time.
Tom Hoefling and America’s Party are trying to fundamentally change the political discourse in our nation from one of profligate spending on sound bites and ad buys, to one of education and conscientious leadership that leads by example.
For this reason, Tom Hoefling and America’s Party take no donations. Instead, we seek volunteers who are willing to be their own campaign manager and create their own outreach efforts, whether that is online or in person.
Some say that they know what candidate A or B will do in office, based upon what they say on the campaign trail. America’s Party was founded on the principle of going beyond the sound bites and superficial campaign trail quotes and deep-sea diving into candidate’s records, in order to discern what they’ll do once in office.
This high standard results in many discarded candidates whose claims fall far short of their actions, especially when their records are as long as our opponents in this election cycle.
Personally, I believe that regardless of who wins this election, God will still be in control and for this reason I will not be swayed to vote against my conscience. God has allowed previous disasters to befall our nation and thus forced our nation to reassess our priorities, over and over again.
Personally, my support of Obama’s opponents goes back to his 2004 Senate campaign, when I actively supported Alan Keyes both with my funds and my endorsement. This opposition stems from Obama’s support of infanticide, despite the destruction that has caused in some of our nation’s most vulnerable neighborhoods.
Personally, I believe that Romney’s record is as bad as Obama’s on the key, most critical issues of our time. The best catalogue of his record can be found at http://prolifeprofiles.com/mitt-romney-abortion and because of this, I consider Romney more dangerous than Obama. It will be nigh unto impossible for members of his own party to deny Romney the votes he needs to pass his agenda, just like when Bush had both Houses of Congress to support No Child Left Behind, MediCare Part D and the Patriot Act, among other questionable initiatives.
Personally, I believe that only God knows which of the 2, Obama or Romney, is the greater evil for America and since I'm not God, I can't vote for either because I might get it wrong! God obviously wants our nation on our knees seeking him, or we wouldn't have this choice in the first place!
Personally, I know that Tom Hoefling is only running for President because nobody else is standing up for Life, Family and Liberty. If just 1/2 the Christians in America were less worried about Obama and more worried about God, we would turn this nation around no matter who was President! If just 50 million Christians would choose to support Life, Family and Liberty, by voting for Tom, then we wouldn't have to worry about Romney or Obama, because it would be a landslide for Tom!
Personally, I believe that if every officer of government would simply abide by his oath of office, abortion would end tomorrow, because it is an UnConstitutional denial of an Inalienable Right that God has given all mankind and no government has the ability to infringe on it! In fact, if the GOP would ever actually support the pro-life plank that Reagan put into the party's platform, then maybe there wouldn't be a need for a modern party full of William Wilberforces!
Finally, I know that a vote for Tom Hoefling is not a vote for anyone else! It is a vote for Tom! If you don't want to take what I say into consideration and you insist on voting for Candidate A or B, that's up to you. But don't you believe for a second that those of us who are choosing a different path have some sort of hidden agenda and are somehow supporting evil by not supporting the GOP's mandate!
