Mitt Romney, No Friend to Conservatives

During a recent conversation about the primaries, I mentioned that if Romney becomes the Republican nominee and it ultimately boils down to Obama vs. Romney in the general election, I would write in Mickey Mouse. The instant reaction was that I would be throwing away my vote. But, I don't think that's true. The only diffence that I see between Obama and Romney is that Obama says he wants change and Romney says he has changed. Even the radical liberal, George Soros says there 'isn’t all that much difference' between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama. (Check it out here.)

Numerous radio talk show hosts have expressed their concern about Mitt Romney, including Mark Levin, Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh, who have all but officially endorsed Rick Santorum. As a matter of fact, Limbaugh has stated emphatically that “Mitt Romney is not a conservative.” Even the socially libertarian, Neal Boortz prefers Santorum and Gingrich over Romney. He only looks toward Romney by default, believing that out of the three, only he could beat Obama. But, does this actually qualify for a vote? I don't think so. Meanwhile, no less than six of Romney's own family members have endorsed Ron Paul.

It was an absolutely enormous one-stop piece published by Mass Resistance of Massachusetts, disclosing Romney's actions and social policies, that first grabbed my attention as to just how dangerous of a threat Mitt Romney really is. It is not enough that he has waffled on abortion and failed to rise to the defense of marriage, his political policies have threatened the well established liberties that this nation was built on. It chronicles Romney's legacy as governor, focusing on his pro-choice record and how he was bent over backwords in support of the radical homosexual agenda.

For example, despite the over 2,500 pedophilia cases now on record involving homosexual scout leaders, Romney has stated, "I feel that all people should be allowed to participate in the Boy Scouts regardless of their sexual orientation." In the same article, a BSA official criticized Romney for opposing Scout policy. - Boston Globe, 10/27/1994

According to David M. Bresnahan's Investigative Journal, Web Today, "That is a view which is in direct opposition... to the BSA national policy. Romney showed his colors during the Olympics when he made it clear that the Boy Scouts would not be a part of the Olympics as they had traditionally been throughout modern Olympic history. There would be no Scouts in uniform for the public or press to see. Romney wanted no complaints from the homosexual community or the world press."

Brenahan continues, "Every past Olympics, regardless of host country, the local Scouts participated in some way -- in uniform. In fact, some of the past Olympics even used Scouts in uniform to present the awards to the Olympians." This came at a time when the BSA were suffering an unrelenting assault by radical homosexual activists which included a Supreme Court case in Florida which voted 5 to 4 in favor of BSA, a narrow margin to say the least. Even President Bill Clinton came to their defense at one point.

Considering the above it comes as no surprise that Romney has clearly stated that he is "not planning on reversing" Obama's repeal of don't ask, don't tell, regarding homosexuals in the military. I find it hard to believe that the governor who refused to defend marriage in Massachusetts will do anything to their benefit if elected president. As pro-homosexual publication, Bay Windows noted in it's 2005 article, Mitt Romney's Secret Gay History!, "Even after he came out in support of state and federal constitutional amendments to ban same-sex marriage, Romney took some actions that could be labeled pro-gay."

Apparently Romney based his abortion position on opinion polls. He frequented Planned Parenthood events and sought their endorsement. Meanwhile his wife financially supported them, albeit a small contribution. Of course, Romney has distanced himself from her but if elected, she would still be the official first lady. (See here and here.) Here’s a pro-life statement that has been signed by Michele Bachmann, Tim Pawlenty, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, and Ron Paul, but Romney has refused to sign it. The statement is from the Susan B. Anthony List, a respected and well-known pro-life group.

While running for Senate in Massachusetts, Romney stated:
“While I personally believe abortion is not a choice for me, I believe a woman should have that choice to make for herself. I hold the view that this stance is one of sepration of church and state.” (link)
Sound familiar? This is the same argument that every good old Democrat politician has made. When running for governor in 2002, in response to the National Abortion Rights Action League's candidate survey Romney wrote in "I respect and will protect a woman's right to choose. This choice is a deeply personal one. Women should be free to choose based on their own beliefs, not mine and not the government's." (link)

Obama modelled his health care plan after Mitt Romney's Massachusetts plan. MIT economist Jonathan Gruber, who advised both Gov. Romney and President Obama on health care, asserted: “Basically, it’s the same thing.”

According to MSNBC: "The records, gleaned from White House visitor logs reviewed by NBC News, show that senior White House officials had a dozen meetings in 2009 with three health-care advisers and experts who helped shape the health care reform law signed by Romney in 2006, when the Republican presidential candidate was governor of Massachusetts. One of those meetings, on July 20, 2009, was in the Oval Office and presided over by President Barack Obama, the records show."

Furthernore, The Beacon Hill Institute study found that, on average, Romneycare:
  • cost the Bay State 18,313 jobs;
  • drove up total health insurance costs in Massachusetts by $4.311 billion;
  • slowed the growth of disposable income per person by $376; and
  • reduced investment in Massachusetts by $25.06 million.
Not only is Romney linked with Obama Care, but evidently there's also family connection to Saul Alinsky, whom Obama is said to have patterned much of his own political formulas, including teaching at the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) in Chicago. ACORN was shut down in 2009 following the release of a video in which employees appeared to advise on how to hide prostitution activities and avoid taxes. Check out the photos of when Mitt's father, George Romney, met Saul Alinsky. "I think you ought to listen to Alinsky," George told his white allies, according to T. George Harris's 1968 book, Romney's Way. Mitt's father and mother were not exactly the most conservative Republicans.

A potential Romney Gate? “As manager and board member of Damon Corp, Mitt Romney sits at the center of one of the top 15 corporate crimes of the 1990’s.” Watch the mini-documentary, Blood Money: Mitt Romney's Medicare Scandal.

I will close with tea party activist, Ali Akbar's thoughts: "Mitt Romney is dangerous for this country," he warns. "I'm going to argue that a conservative House and a conservative Senate, which we will achieve, will be better for the country under President Barack Obama than [under] President Romney, simply because we can fight the enemy."

My objection to abortion should not be thought to imply insensitivity toward anyone who has suffered such an ordeal.  My denunciation of the homosexual agenda in no way should be misinterpretted as hateful or demeaning toward those who are or who have struggled with such sexual tendencies.

  1. Authors note: This blog was written during the primary elections. There are some very good pages that offer a side by side analysis between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama.

    Here's a good non-partisan voter's guide that allows you to gauge the issues that are important to you and whether or not you agree.
