Ron Paul is the best man to be the next President. However, though I don’t like it, he was not able to persuade enough Americans to win even the GOP majority. Paul got my money and my vote in the primary and I tried to persuade many of his truths.
But, we have to be realistic.
Second, Romney has demonstrated business skills and experience far beyond Obama’s (which are non-existent), and also beyond Paul’s for handling an economic crisis. Romney was demonstrating moral while Obama was sucking a bong and looking at porn or worse with his mentor. Romney’s conservative principles with regard to government are not nearly as strong as Ron’s based on their records, but then Romney’s principles are far better than Obama’s. Romney was building American enterprises while Obama was organizing against them, filing discrimination suits to coerce banks into subprime mortgages, training ACORN community organizers in the radicalism of Saul Alinsky.
Third, Obama has already demonstrated where he is taking this country… off a cliff into a chaos, tyranny and a de-developed and diminished America. Fourth, Romney SAYS he is not going there.
Without further analysis, this decision boils down to going in the same (negative) direction Obama is going today and where he will probably accelerate OR voting for Romney’s promise of a change in direction toward more conservative principles. Already at the point in the analysis, I would vote for Romney.
But there’s more. Romney and Obama’s foreign policy positions are clearly NOT the same. For example, Obama clearly does not support Israel and Romney does…according to the current Israeli Prime Minister who is looking down Iran’s gun barrel. What more proof do you need? Obama stated he will stand with Muslims, while Romney slaps Obama and Clinton with the simple but obviously true statement that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. Romney supports Poland, Obama didn’t. It could not be more clear. Obama and Clinton, by their appeasement, are leading this country into war, perhaps unwittingly, by essentially waving a wave flag in front of an enraged bull (Iran and radical Islam). Make no mistake, Islamists intend to dominate the earth. We can’t hide our heads in the sand and expect they will leave use alone. Libertarian President Thomas Jefferson had to send the first U.S. Navy ships and Marines to stop Muslim pirates. Appeasement starts wars. Wars stopped by appeasement are known as surrender.
Obama will try to institute gun control, Romney will not…and did not in Massachusetts (I live there and have a license). Instead, Romney brought the NRA and gun-control advocates to the negotiation table to draft proposals for MA’s existing gun law.
Obama clearly supports and is supported by big banks. Romney at least has the financial and economic clout and background to understand what is at stake in the economy, while Obama clearly is lost without a clue, led around by the nose. Romney is also supported in this election by big banks, but he does not really need that money and could be (yet to be proven) less beholden to crony politics than Obama. Obama proven over and over that he is beholden.
Romney gives a huge portion of his income to charity (~19%) and Romney’s income is self-made, while Obama gives a pittance (less than 1%) to charity and Obama is a made man paying millions to hide something in his past while hiring thugs like Rahm Emanuel, Van Jones, SEIU, and ACORN.
Ron and Rand, Bill McClintoch, Marc Rubio, Jim deMint and several others have a chance of influencing Romney, but they have no chance of influencing Obama. Romney says he will reduce the size of government, while Obama has been steadily increasing the size of government.
Obama is the rotten bird in the hand, Romney is the live bird in the bush.
