Know Mitt Romney!

rickysplace

This is from Bookworm Room’s blog. I repost it in its entirety. Think about it. I’m going to vote on my way home tonight.

I’m not sure I buy the “Mitt was sent by God” part, but otherwise I think this letter, forwarded to me by my Dad, is worth sharing:

This article is for those who are just simply not enthused about voting for Mitt Romney. You may not be thrilled with the idea of voting for Barack Obama, and in fact, you may be repulsed by it. However, for any number of reasons, you feel uncomfortable with a vote for Romney, and are considering sitting this one out or voting for a third-party candidate. It could be the Mormonism of Gov. Romney you do not like, or it could be his various position changes over the years (most notably on abortion). Particularly in states like Nevada, Ohio…

Some deep questions to be answered her. ‘Should Christian U.S. citizens vote as a matter of stewarding the power and privilege they have in a process that impacts those who cannot represent themselves?’

More Than Serving Tea

Next week I will vote for the first time in a presidential election. I became a naturalized U.S. citizen two years ago, giving up my Korean passport, my (not)green card, and pledging allegiance after having lived in the  U.S. since the spring of 1971.

I actually studied for my citizenship exam out of fear and habit – fear that the wrong answer would mean restarting a process that had cost money, time and emotions, and habit because I grew understanding not studying was not an option. The process actually took years for me, wrestling through ambivalence, frustration, grief and gain to get to a point where the privileges, advantages and necessities of becoming a citizen and my faith as a Christian pushed me over the edge.

At the heart of my decision wasn’t the right to vote. It was an issue of integrity. As a writer/blogger/speaker who addresses issues of…

Some noteworthy figures to note before the elections.

AirModal Independent

Those that voted for Obama did not realize that when you voted for Hope & Change you were voting for the hope that he would leave you with some change… in your pocket. How did that work out for you?

  • Unemployment still in double digits and worsening
  • 80% of college grads cannot find work in chosen profession
  • Over 40% of Americans now on federal assistance (an all-time high)
  • National debt UP 60% since taking office (over $16 trillion)
  • An 84% failure rate on “green” taxpayer investments that most taxpayers opposed
  • Average American income DOWN over $4000 per year
  • Home values still DOWN more than 30% nationally
  • Businesses are closing and investors are leaving America
  • Obama has sent more jobs overseas than all of the last five presidents combined

Inflation is the most punishing tax of all – printing and borrowing 42 cents for every dollar the government spends is suicidal.

After this president, the public could do without this senseless publicity on the ‘Man’ & not the ‘president’. Just look at how misleading it has been thus far.

More than a lot has changed in 4 years & oddly enough, Only Obama & his cohorts are yet to admit it.

More than a lot has changed in 4 years & oddly enough, Only Obama & his cohorts are yet to admit it.

The fact that it is still too close to call makes it a Victory for the Republicans already, & of course a huge minus for the democrats; even (When) they win.

Are We All Right?

This post was originally posted in June.  The following is my October update.  I was surprised that so little of my original predictions has changed since June but what has changed will be posted in green text.


If you have paid any attention to my political ramblings over the last three years than my prediction that Romney will win the presidential election in a possible landslide is probably not surprising. This is a prediction that I have continued to maintain since October of 2008. These predictions have nothing to do with what I hope happens, only with what I think will happen.  At the time I wrote this I was not a strong Romney supporter.  Now that I have studied the man and his policies closely, and read his book I have become a big Romney supporter.  Of all the republican candidates he was and still is the best…

More details about Benghazi

You don’t have to agree with this to make sense of it. I don’t, not entirely anyway. But it is a very good read nonetheless.

The RAP Sheet

Am I really going to do this?  Am I really going to stick my neck out and blog about abortion?  Am I really going to try and defend a position that will upset liberals and conservatives alike?

When I started this blog, I promised myself I would use it as a public sounding board for my own thoughts, and if in doing so I alienated every reader of the blog and had no followers, then so be it.  Mind you, I’m not trying to alienate everybody, but if I was, a regular abortion essay would probably be the fastest route.  As a Republican atheist professor, I’m used to having a minority world view.

The stimulus for today’s essay comes from a letter to the editor in the Orlando Sentinel.  It appears to be an attack on Mitt Romney from the right:

Mitt Romney’s current position on abortion appears logically…

This a question!

David's Commonplace Book

Roger Simon at PJ Media believes that if President Obama wins re-election, he should be impeached over his role in covering up details over the terrorist attack on the US diplomatic mission at Benghazi.

If Barack Obama is reelected, will he face impeachment over Benghazi — a yet more unpleasant and far more wrenching result than to lose an election?

It could happen — and in my estimation should happen — the way revelations are playing out over the bloody terror attack that took four American lives and has led to weeks of prevarication and obfuscation.

The scandal thus far has at least tarnished and quite possibly implicated everyone from the CIA director, to the secretaries of State and Defense, to the UN ambassador and, of course, the president himself — with no end in sight, because Obama, normally loath to expose himself and even less so in an…
