Some might call it hyperbole that this is the most important election of our lifetime.
But many are saying so–and I agree.
This will be the twelfth presidential election of my lifetime. For much of America’s history, presidential elections didn’t matter greatly because power was local and federal influence remained quite small (except for expanding the nation from “sea to shining sea”).
Beginning in the mid-twentieth century, the federal government began to grow exponentially, the nation became increasingly secularized, and the possibility of both economic problems (monstrous debt) and world rule (globalization) came menacingly into view.
Because of these and other factors, the November 3 U.S. elections could determine our fate in this generation.
