What do history's most notorious despots have in common with many of the flag-waving, patriotic politicians of our day? Both groups rise to power through the exploitation of fear, which has become a societal plague. There have been widespread casualties. We need an antidote. Feardom offers its readers a much-needed immunization.
The press is all abuzz with Mitt Romney (not to mention his Mormonism) and his potential (and probable) candidacy for the office of the POTUS.
I’m worried that the LDS voting bloc is jumping in behind him simply because he’s a fellow Mormon. To entertain the notion that he’s not a good candidate for the presidency, I cite the following from “The Mitt Romney Deception”:
Despite recent statements across the country by Governor Mitt Romney claiming he’s pro-life, pro-family and a committed conservative, a broad investigation of his actual statements, actions, and public positions over the years indicates that he has spent his entire career speaking and governing as a liberal — and that his new found conversion to conservatism very likely coincides with his candidacy for the presidency.
The article goes on to cite some examples showing Romney’s anti-conservative stances, which can also be viewed at On The Issues.
Take some time to read them.
Are we so willing to throw in our support behind a political candidate simply because he professes the same religion? Haven’t we been warned against wolves in sheep’s clothing? Isn’t it feasible that Romney could be the wrong candidate, despite his professed faith?
The astute visitor will remember that until a few weeks ago I had a link on my sidebar to a Romney-friendly campaign site. I have taken it down since that time, as I have come across more and more information that leads me to disagree with Romney’s political stances on varying issues. He’s a great businessman, but when it comes to the issues, it looks like Romney isn’t the best option for this nation.
