It’s more important to stand for something than against something…. Why? Because whatever you focus on you give power to, and will ultimately come into reality. When you stand against something what are you thinking about? That something that you are against. So all of your energy and focus goes into the thing you don’t want to have in your life. This concept works in any area in your life…. relationships, work situations, family, financial, health, etc.
There is a saying by Earl Nightengale that says “You get what you think about most of the time.” Look back in your life at the times when you put a tremendous amount of thought and fear and worry about something? How did it turn out? Did you end up experiencing some form of what you were worrying about?
It is a habit for us to focus our thoughts this way through socialization and culture. However that creates more struggle and lack in our lives and creates much more effort than we need to experience.
So if we were to use this concept in our daily lives,, wouldn’t it make sense to focus on what we want to create instead of what we don’t want to create? If we focus on what we want to create, we can let providence step in and let the miracles unfold in how what we want comes about.
So way am I mentioning this and how does it apply to the election?
Well, if you take the Anti-Obama stance, then you are focusing all of your energy and thoughts on creating what you don’t want. That was how Bush stayed in for another term. There was so much anti-Bush sentiment, that all of that energy ended up going into keeping him in office. The same thing goes on with the current administration. If you don’t want a continuation of the current policies, then you have to focus on the what you want in the government.
That is why I am focusing on protecting the Constitution. If it means the current administration suddenly gets a change of heart and they start doing that, then I’m all for it. The reason why I am for Romney in this case is because the current administration has proven that it isn’t protecting the Constitution and doesn’t seem like it will in the future base on it’s current actions. So I will speak with my vote and give Romney a chance. If he begins to attack the Constitution, or not protect it, then I will focus on replacing him before his term is up. It’s the President’s job to protect the Constitution and if Romney begins to play fast and loose with it, he needs to be replaced by someone else. It’s that simple.
There are many things I could stand for. So why do I pick the Constitution? Because when you have a strong Constitution, as was done in the Civil Rights era, you can protect the rights of all citizens in our society because you have a solid foundation that you can call on to maintain your rights, which is what the Constitution is about.
