One Small Voice. A Lot of Big Ideas. Let Freedom Ring!
The reasons for not re-electing President Obama are numerous: failed domestic policies, failing foreign policies, poor management of our nation’s resources including taxpayer dollars and energy, over-regulation of small business, a failure to work in any type of bipartisan way, a penchant for putting social issues ahead of economic issues…you’ve read and studied the issues and know the score.
Many Americans have jokingly? said they would vote for a potted plant over voting for a 2nd term for Obama. Thankfully, we have a much better option. We have Mitt Romney.
This post is not about Romney’s vision forAmerica, which in my opinion, is on-target. It’s not about his 5-Point Plan, a succinct, easy-to-understand path. This essay is my personal view of Mitt Romney, the man.
I believe Mitt Romney is a man of principle. He is a man of character. He is a man of integrity. The office of President of the United States is not for the faint of heart. It is not for the indecisive or the weak. The most powerful position in the world must only be granted to a person with strong moral character and steadfastness. It must be a person with conviction who Americans can trust to make the right decisions at the right time and who takes seriously our constitution and works hard, not only to protect Americans, but to defend American freedoms.
The President of the United States must love America and American ideals more than him or herself. Every day, the President is asked to make decisions that affect our current lives and our future. “What’s in it for me” should never be a consideration. Most people can’t make that kind of personal sacrifice. I believe Mitt Romney can and will.
Romney doesn’t need the trappings of the White House. He doesn’t need to further a political career or push a global agenda. He is at a place in his life where he can wield power and be a force for change from an armchair just as well as the Oval Office. But I believe he is taking on the hardest job in the world because he knows America needs to fixed. And he is the best person standing to accomplish that task.
Is Romney perfect? No. Will I, as a conservative leaning libertarian (or libertarian leaning conservative) have issues with our federal government when Romney is elected? You can count on it. One man or woman cannot possibly fix everything that ails our nation.
But at this time and place in America’s history Mitt Romney is the right person for the job. Because it’s a big job and I believe he will put America back on the proper path towards economic prosperity and national security. And for this American Mom that’s a huge step in the right direction.
P.S. For all the Obama supporters, I want you to know that my vote on November 6th for Mitt Romney is also for YOU. Some people just don’t have enough sense to come in out of the rain. And that’s okay. Those of us with enough sense will pull you out of the rain by electing Mitt Romney.
