Tries To Be Reagan With "Believe in
Romney wants to echo Ronald Reagan's legacy of having taught
Americans to "Believe in America." Well, Mitt Romney is no Ronald
President Reagan spoke of true conservatism being a
three-legged stool: social conservatism, fiscal conservatism, and
defense conservatism. Romney's governorship in MA broke two of those
legs off of the stool, the social and the fiscal
Fiscal Conservatism: Would never include
government ran health care, of any kind. And we all know about the
Romney Care that is in place in Massachusetts.
This would include being conservative when it comes to the issues of
abortion and homosexuality, both of which Romney greatly furthered
in Massachusetts as governor.
Romney is a
flip-flopper on the abortion issue, which he once said he was
pro-abortion because of a relative who wanted one. Then while
seeking the Republican nomination for the 2008 elections, he
suddenly became pro-life, but not fully. He said that he was
pro-life while talking about embryonic stem cell research; but
nothing was said about abortion on demand. He left that little
loophole open for a later flip-flop.
the father of homosexual marriage in Massachusetts. He had gone on
record while running for governor, as having said he would do more
for homosexuals in that state. And he did just that. He declared
homosexual marriage legal in MA, when that state's constitution did
not give him the authority to. He later claimed that he thought he
had to do it, when a court had handed down an opinion in favor of
getting a law passed in favor of it. The blame-game apple doesn't
fall far from the tree.
Mitt Romney's father also
played that blame-game. While running against Nixon in the
primaries, it came out that he had made a bad comment about the
Vietnam War. So he claimed he had been brainwashed. As a result of
that comment, he lost the primary election to Nixon. --But he should
never have been able to run to begin with, because he was not born
George W. Romney (Mitt's father) was born
in Mexico. He was born there because his ancestors fled America when
America made a law against plural marriages.
George W. Romney's grandparents were polygamists
and left with their children, who would have included George’s
father. As a result, George (Mitt’s father) was born in Mexico. Some
will say that because the grandparents had George's father in
America, that such would make George an American. That would be the
case, if George had been born while his parents had a residency here
in the states and just happened to be in Mexico when he was born.
But that was not the case. That family had left America.
The reason we need natural born citizens as
presidents, is so that they do not have an allegiance to another
country. Mitt Romney could have a desire to allow all of the illegal
Mexicans to be allowed to stay here. –And sad to say, if that were
to be the case, amnesty would be the only thing he would actually
have in common with Reagan.
