You live in a teeny town and there is only one restaurant. You can't cook well so you eat at that restaurant a LOT.
One day there's a change of ownership and you notice that the quality of the food has gone down...but the prices have gone up. There's also less staff working and portion sizes are smaller. You sadly note your favorite meals on the menu are now gone and replaced with new items that the patrons agree are not their favorite. Security in the parking lot is lax at best and incidents of crime are up.
At your next visit you realize that the new owner has divided the dining room in two and is offering free meals to people on the opposite side of the room. When you get your bill, there is a surcharge added to it. Despite the additional charges, the quality of the food, service and security continue to diminish.
The next day you read in the paper that there's a new restaurant opening in town. It promises great food, better prices, and efficient service. You've heard about this restaurant from friends in other towns who have eaten there and they seemed to like it. You read reviews online by foodies and the reactions are also positive.
Curious, you attend a soft opening for the new business and observe that your bill arrives surcharge free, the dining room is not divided and there are no comped meals offered at the tables next to yours. The new business also offers attentive security so there is a much lower risk of crime.
So....when the new restaurant opens.....would you boycott it and go back to the old one?
No. No you would not. Why? Because you're not a chump.
So with that in mind...and....after the past four years of higher taxes, witnessing the nation's welfare state skyrocket, enduring policy changes that are not at the will of the people, unending unemployment, threatened national security, and the drastic division of our country....would you vote for a second term of Barack Obama?
You wouldn't. Because you're not a chump.
Don't be a chump on Election Day. Vote with your head, not your heart. The nation is depending on it.
