|The guy on the right is Right!|
I can easily illustrate my point with the two videos provided below. I'll begin with the video of a supporter of Mitt Romney, the guy on the Right. This supporter is Black, Conservative, and a very successful entrepreneur. His name is Herman Cain, and he was a former candidate for President in the GOP nomination process. His message: Is America a great country, or what? USA! USA! USA!
The Greatest Country in the World

You see, one of the main attributes of a Romney and GOP supporter/voter is a great love of the United States of Ameria, and the belief that it is a great country where you have an opportunity with Free Enterprise. And that is the fundamental difference between the candidates, and their supporters.
On the Right, there is a desire for self-reliance. Whereas, on the Left, there are many supporters of Barack Obama, despite his horrific record on the economy, the national debt topping $16 trillion, and a foreign policy and national security that is a complete failure - not to mention scandals like Fast & Furious or the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya on 9/11/12 that the Obama administration failed to admit (lied about!) for over a week - you have to wonder what it is that makes them want to vote for Barack Obama.
The unfortunate truth is that perhaps some people have learned to expect "free stuff" from the government. And when they get all the government handouts, at the expense of hard working folks that pay the taxes, you would expect them to also be chanting, "USA! USA! USA!" But do they? I didn't hear anyone in the following video saying that this is the greatest country in the world. Did you?
Original Obamaphone Lady: Obama Voter Says Vote for Obama because he gives a free Phone

In the vernacular of social media: LOL! Apparently, the lady above isn't aware of the fact that the "free Obama phone" is an urban legend; it is total misinformation, as it turns out. The actual truth is, "The federal program wasn’t started by President Obama. It dates back to 1996, as part of the Telecommunications Act of 1996." Really? Is that not true irony? The ignorant sheeple will believe anything, especially if it means they can get free stuff. Sure, vote for Obama! Get that free ObamaPhone! And the free health care! Right... Good luck with that!
Like I said, there is a sharp contrast between the candidates, and a very distinct difference in what their supporters believe is true. (What they believe is true and the actual Truth are vastly different!!)
Please allow me a moment of deep reflection. There is a need for me to expound on what I've said so far. In my personal life, there are many people that I love and cherish as close friends, and many are supporters of Barack Obama and the Liberal/Progressive agenda. I do not wish to demean, demonize, or offend them in any way. I acknowledge that they understand what Obama stands for, and agree with his ideologies, and that is totally their own choice. I may disagree with them, but I respect their beliefs. I just hope that it is understood that I am not trying to bash people for their beliefs, or people that lack the access to valid information.
I am, however, going to passionately attempt to make sure that people actually understand the differences between the candidates, if they don't already!
It IS the Greatest Country in the World, because .... (Fill in the blank). Two possible answers: "Because you have opportunity because you are free to ATTEMPT to succeed," or because, "If you fail, you can get a free phone."
But sorry, folks, it isn't really an ObamaPhone. It IS, actually, a DependencyPhone.
Is this a great country, or what?
I'm just sayin'...
