Response to Mitt Romney Campaign Letter: How Will You Be Different?Submitted by QFish on Thu, 09/20/2012 - 15:53
I received an email today from Mitt Romney’s campaign. Why I am on his mailing list, I have no clue. But, oh well. I’ll just use this as an opportunity to respond to his campaign email.
“Mr. President, by your own measure, you’ve failed to deliver the jobs Americans need.
In fact, no president in modern history has ever asked to be re-elected with this many Americans out of work.”
We all know the economy is terrible and unemployment is extremely high. But, Mr. Romney, why would the Republican Party put someone forward who is so similar to President Obama if we, as Republicans, expect to change the economy and create jobs? So, why is the Republican Party asking Americans to elect someone who stands for so much of the same things? Do you expect just to create jobs out of thin air? Do you expect to be able to create jobs when the Fed just continues to print money into infinity? Do you expect to create jobs when our nation continues to spend money, we don’t have, by fighting wars that are unjust? Please explain, Mr. Romney, how will you do anything different than Obama when your policies are so similar? I haven’t heard a reasonable explanation yet. It’s just a bunch of empty words.
“It’s unacceptable. And now, America needs jobs — not a litany of President Obama’s excuses, scapegoats, and alibis.”
President Obama’s record is truly unacceptable. But, America does not need a litany of Mr. Romney’s flip-flopping, & excuses for his record. Mr. Romney, you have a record that is full of flip-flopping: saying one thing on an issue, then changing your mind when the public pressure is on. Is this the kind of President that America needs? Someone who cannot make up their mind? Someone who will not stand on their principles?
“To change direction, we need a president who will own up to the simple truth: Americans are not better off than they were four years ago.
I am running for president to help create a better future for America.”
I feel this is so shallow. Is this what is driving the campaign this election – that Americans are not better off than they were four years ago? I think everyone knows that.
The question is: What are you, Mr. Romney, going to do about it?
Does the “better future” you speak of, include indefinite detention of American citizens without trial? Does it include that you can kill American citizens if you want to? Does it include a “changed” version of Obamacare – Romneycare? Does it include sending our sons and daughters to more wars to die fighting for nations who don’t want us in their land? Does it include spying on American citizens with drones? Does it include continuing to print money that we don’t have so that our nation collapses? Does it include the continued trampling of the 4th Amendment with the PATRIOT Act & the TSA? Does it include ignoring the Constitution? Does it include ignoring the voice of the American people? Does it include ignoring the voice of our soldiers who have clearly stated they don’t want to be in these wars? Does it include more government regulations? Does it include taking away the constitutional right of Americans to keep and bear arms? Does it include more bailouts? Does it include more executive orders that go against the core principles of America and what we were founded on? Does it include going to war without a declaration of war from Congress? Does it include sanctions on nations?
“With your help, the Republican team, Paul Ryan, and I will deliver that brighter future.”
Because I know what you stand for, Mr. Romney, and all of the questions above are facts that you believe in and will do, I don’t get how you and Paul Ryan would deliver a brighter future.
A brighter future in my mind is when all of the above questions are gone. When a President stays true to the Oath that he takes – to uphold and defend the Constitution. You, Mr. Romney, have shown with your record that you will not do that.
I’m sorry to see the Republican Party shunned the only candidate who believes in that Oath. I’m sorry to see the Republican Party shunned the voice of our military men and women when they made their voice clear as to who their choice for President was. It’s time the Republican Party stands up for the Constitution, listens to our military and stops the insanity that is destroying America. It’s time our Party stands up and speaks out when our candidates do not stay true to the Oath that they take and our Party’s platform.
In November, no matter what the outcome is of the election, America will not be better off. Because I still care about our Nation, our military and our Party, I will do what is in my power to change things in my state of Oklahoma and in the Oklahoma Republican Party.
