The choice is this: Do we wish to continue as a constitutional republic, the United States of America, or do we wish to become a socialist state, where doing right is punished and mob rule is rewarded; where we become a failing economy and a subjugated people? There will no doubt be those who say I am engaging in hysterics or trying to scare voters. While what I say may scare voters, it is not hysterical. Everything I write in this op-ed has its basis in published information. It is an accurate reflection of the choices presented to us in November.
