I'm a Mormon, Mitt's a Mormon......NO Wonder I'm in Love
My Mitt love began in 2002 while living in Salt Lake City and watching first hand Mitt take the Olympics from bankruptcy to one of the best run Olympics in history. It was well organized and completely magical. I said back then that Mitt should be President. The Mormon thing of course seals the deal. I like that I know what he has been taught throughout his life and quite coincidentally, our political philosophy jives musically like the Tabernacle Choir and Gladys Knight in concert. Mitt's foreign policy is spot on with the Mormon belief that agency is one of our most important gifts in this life. America ensures with our strength, the many democracies around the world and freedom is essential when playing the game of choice in opposition.
Romney is compassionate. Most Republicans are not. They come across as hard-ass boot puller uppers that bemoan those who need. Truth is, we all should give more....so the government doesn't have to and because it's the right thing to do and it's good for the soul. I expect my tax dollars to go toward the betterment of society and to the protection of this nation. According to some in the Republican party, the government should have no revenue, no foreign involvement and society should take care of all their own needs. Education, road construction and many other government subsidies should be taken care of in the private sector. Some conservatives crap on public education and spit on welfare subsidies. It is the wickedness in society that keeps the government over reaching and a constant in our lives. It is dishonesty, prejudice and greed that keeps the government reaching into our pockets in the name of regulation. It's unfortunate that we as a people need regulating and for that, place the blame on us. Corruption resides in all entities in our society. As a citizenry we need to be better before we dismiss some of the legitimate programs the government provides for the people. We need to get our own houses in order before we cry foul about the white house. But still, get out of my kitchen, my living room and my bedroom. I'm somewhat a populist and for that I make no apologies. However, the term populist has been perverted by that other ASSinine party in the name of false advocacy. They don't seek to help the needy, only to cripple and make dependent and thus aquiring a vote. Their populist ideals revolve around serfdom and dumbing down the populus. Self sufficiency and self thinking is too dangerous for the welfare recipient as they seek to falsely provide a persona of caring. A true populist would recognize self-sufficiency as the most important aspect of one having self respect and dignity. The democratic way demeans and prefers the weak to remain weak and reliant on the government. Populists are not democrats. Mitt is a moderate Republican and the tea party is trying to move the party further to the right, therefore some phants are becoming Libertarians who are frustrated, constipated, fanatical losers. Let's not let them hijack our party. Mitt is center right and so am I. But don't kiss this chick out of the party just yet. Let me simmer and live in the middle before you kick me out for being a humanitarian hawk who thinks victims of incest and rape should be able to have an abortion. In the end I make no bones about supporting a fellow Mormon. He's a Mormon, I'm a Mormon wouldn't you like to be a Mormon, too? We are a tight knit group and like I said, hells yea, I like Mitt's Mormonism. He probably doesn't say shit, damn, hell and ass as much as I do, but we are taught to love LIBERTY and to help our fellowmen, women and children. I don't think Romney-care makes Mitt a liberal. I think it makes him a problem solver instead of a fringe right wing ideologue who thinks their shit doesn't stink. But in the end it isn't the Mormon deal that made me love his hot swag. It's our perfectly aligned political philosophy that makes me know he listened in Sunday School, unlike some other Mo's I know. Yea I said it. Mormons who need Mormons are the luckiest Mormons in the world!
