Romney Stands Up for a Persecuted Minority: Corporations


The following popular convictions have been entrenched for more than a century. It takes courage and morality for a political candidate to dispute them. It is the only way to combat the unemployment scourge. It is consistent with freedom: a coercion-free existence.

"BIG corporations are robber barons." - Power-lusters and Looters

"Corporations are not people." - Ron Paul and many of his supporters

“Corporations are greedy crooks.” Losers who spurn the presumption of innocence doctrine

Translation of the quotes: "I ENVY. I GREED to LOOT corporations. I SALIVATE to TYRANNIZE those WHO DARE SUCCEED!"

Little people are envious. Their response to achievement is not admiration but a desire to control or destroy. For over a century, corporations have been tyrannized by the Left and the Right. Big corporations are vilified as robber barons to justify Antitrust laws, which spit on logic: Free competition must be enforced!

Having pulverized logic, power-lusters followed up with undefined, flexible, contradictory laws. These thugs have solid allies: the envious and the irrational. Lusting for total annihilation, they now proclaim that people who associate to form corporations are not people.

In freedom, people are free to form associations, like corporations, and other people are free to deal with them or not. There are only two types of evil greed: greed for coercive power and greed for the unearned. The successful and the affluent have rights equal to those of other men.

I admire and thank Mitt Romney for standing up for a persecuted minority: corporations.

People criticize Romneycare but they drop a huge context and do not offer alternatives. They evade the following:

The United States Congress passed the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA) in 1986, under Ronald Reagan’s watch. EMTALA requires hospitals and ambulance services to provide care to anyone needing emergency treatment regardless of citizenship, legal status or ability to pay. EMTALA applies to virtually all hospitals in the U.S but includes no provisions for reimbursement. The law is therefore considered an "UNFUNDED safety net program" for patients seeking care at the nation's emergency rooms. As a result of the 1986 EMTALA legislation, HOSPITALS ACROSS THE COUNTRY FACE UNPAID BILLS AND MOUNTING EXPENSES TO CARE FOR THE UNINSURED.

Mitt Romney had nothing to do with the passage of EMTALA, but he had to implement it as governor. I have asked this of those critical of Romneycare but have never gotten an answer: How do you propose to fund unfunded federal programs like the EMTALA while convincing others to end them?

Unlike a governor, Obama or Bush could have advocated for the repeal of unfunded entitlements in the US Congress and throughout the country. Romney says he will advocate for the repeal of Obamacare, and while it is not repealed, he will grant waivers to all states.

Among the declared GOP candidates, I favor JOB CREATORS Mitt Romney and Gary Johnson.

"While in college, Johnson earned money as a door-to-door handyman. His success in that arena encouraged him to start his own business, Big J Enterprises, which was founded in 1976. When he started the business, Johnson was its only employee.[10] He eventually grew Big J into a multi-million dollar corporation with over 1000 employees.[11] By the time he sold the company, in 1999, it was one of New Mexico's leading construction companies."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gary_E._Johnson

Gary Johnson’s first principle of good government is: “Become reality driven.” - http://www.garyjohnson2012.com/record
Sourced from Wikipedia:

“With Bain & Company, Romney had a record of success with clients such as the Monsanto Company, Outboard Marine Corporation, Burlington Industries, and Corning Incorporated.

In 1984, Romney co-founded Bain Capital. As general partner, Romney was FRUGAL and CAUTIOUS, spending little on office appearance and finding the weak spots in so many potential deals. Their first big success was Staples Inc.; Bain Capital eventually reaped a nearly sevenfold return on its investment.

The firm successfully invested in or acquired many well-known companies such as Accuride, Brookstone, Domino's Pizza, Sealy Corporation, Sports Authority, and Artisan Entertainment, as well as lesser-known companies in the industrial and medical sectors.

Romney left Bain Capital in February 1999 to serve as the President and CEO of the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympic Games Organizing Committee. By that time, Bain Capital was on its way to being one of the top private equity firms in the nation, having increased its number of partners from 5 to 18, had 115 employees overall, and had $4 billion under its management.”

After viewing this speech, I decided I will vote for Mitt Romney. He proudly and passionately talks about the FOUNDERS, freedom, capitalism, truth, & integrity. It is an EXCELLENT speech from the mind and heart, without a teleprompter nor notes on his palm.

I hope for a Romney-Johnson team. I wish them best premises and good fortune. God bless.

It is great that aside from standing up against those who would eat corporations, Romney is standing up to DARK-AGES warriors.

Romney said that he wouldn't enter a showdown with the Supreme Court by passing a bill through Congress to make abortion illegal.

The 49 other states evade that hospitals would eventually go bankrupt and close. They did not opt out of the EMTALA - they greed for the unearned.

Romney mandated those who can afford to buy insurance, who would be doing it if not for their reliance on EMTALA.

That medical doctor Ron Paul spurns science when it comes to embryos evinces a fundamental flaw: irrationality and the mentality of those who would burn Galileos at the stake.

He bashes the USA. Another fundamental flaw which may cause another 9-11.

Ilyn Ross said...

The ONLY responsibility of free men is to respect the equal rights of others.

People are free not to deal with corporations. They are free to deal only with sole proprietorships. People who go into business should not be forced to risk their houses, savings for their kids' education, and retirement funds. People should be free to enter into voluntary contracts that do not violate the rights of others.

“I, however, place economy among the first & most important republican virtues, & public debt as the greatest of the dangers to be feared.” - Thomas Jefferson

Romney has consistently exhibited these REPUBLICAN virtues. As general partner in Bain Capital, Romney was FRUGAL & CAUTIOUS, spending little on office appearance. In 2011 as he campaigns, this multimillionaire flies commercial on low-cost... air carrier Southwest Airlines.

At the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, he inherited a $370 million deficit. He left behind a $100 million surplus, contributing $1 million of his own money, & drawing no salary for 3 years. As MA governor with both houses of the MA legislature having large Democratic majorities, Romney faced an immediate $650 million shortfall & a projected $3 billion deficit for the next year. By 2006, MA had a $600–700 million surplus. Romney drew a salary of $1 per year.

In December, 1988, Princeton/Newport went out of business. A law directed at mob violence and organized crime was used by a tyrant to drive a highly successful company out of business before those indicted had a chance to defend themselves in a trial.

From March to August 1991, the US Second District Court of Appeals in New York consecutively voided or reversed a slew of Giuliani convictions. Consequently, the Wall Street Journal ran an editorial headlined: “The Greed Decade Reversed”.

Despite the reversals, the victims of Giuliani’s prosecutorial excesses greatly suffered. Innocent people and businesses were destroyed.

"To take from one because it is thought that his own industry and that of his father’s has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association -- the guarantee to every one of a free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it." - Thomas Jefferson

In answer to my question, Jim said, "Regarding sole proprietors -
the person who owns it is human, the business itself is not."

In corporations, the owners and employees are humans, too. The ASSETS of businesses, whether sole proprietorships, partnerships, or corporations, are PROPERTIES of HUMANS. But the ESSENCE of businesses are the humans that own and operate them.

What is the objective of those who say corporations are not people? To deny the investors/employees rights - to be able to strangle them - to loot them - to economically cannibalize them.

It takes virtue to recognize virtues. Only those who value jobs appreciate job creators. Only the virtuous admire businesses: sole proprietorships, partnerships, and corporations. The honest seek the truth. Those with integrity do not drop contexts.

Realists accept that “tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered.” "The ground of liberty is to be gained by inches, [and] we must be contented to secure what we can get from time to time and eternally press forward for what is yet to get. It takes time to persuade men to do even what is for their own good."

MITT ROMNEY defined himself in the private sector, which, in freedom, is a REASON and PERSUASION ONLY realm. But Corporate America has been under a BIPARTISAN DICTATORSHIP for over a century. Here is a MAN of WEALTH who is standing with the Leader of the Original Tea Partiers: "If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, may your chains set lightly upon you and may posterity forget that ye were ever our countrymen."

Governor Romney lost in the 2008 primary, and the contest became SOCIALISM versus THEOCRACY. Now, the man in the Office first occupied by George Washington, followed by John Adams, then Thomas Jefferson, then James Madison – speaks of fundamentally transforming America. Mitt Romney extols the FOUNDERS and says he will RESTORE AMERICA. In a recent ad, where Governor Romney speaks of principles, Thomas Jefferson is shown. Mitt Romney is a Jeffersonian!

“The principles of Jefferson are the definitions and axioms of free society... All honor to Jefferson -- to the man who, in the concrete pressure of a struggle for national independence by a single people, had the coolness, forecast, and sagacity to introduce into a merely revolutionary document, an abstract truth, applicable to all men and all times, and so to embalm it there, that today, and in all coming days, it shall be a rebuke and a stumbling-block to the very harbingers of reappearing tyranny and oppression." - Abe Lincoln

“I think they’re wrong. I think they’re totally misunderstanding the way the market works,” Paul told me. “They are either just demagoguing or they don’t have the vaguest idea how the market works.”

Paul also came to Romney’s defense for saying “I like to be able to fire people.”

Romney on Romneycare, and its difference with Obamacare @ 18:48 -

What Romney calls the FREE RIDER option [21:00], where many who can afford health insurance but get emergency or major medical treatment paid for by the government, i.e., you pay for it through taxes, is REAGANCARE.

REAGANCARE [EMTALA] is the MANDATE for healthcare providers. The MANDATE enslaving lifesavers and rewarding freeloaders.

The United States Congress passed the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA) in 1986, under Ronald Reagan’s watch. EMTALA requires hospitals and ambulance services to provide care to anyone needing emergency treatment regardless of citizenship, legal status or ability to pay. EMTALA applies to virtually all hospitals in the U.S but includes NO PROVISIONS FOR REIMBURSEMENT. The law is therefore considered an "UNFUNDED safety net program" for patients seeking care at the nation's emergency rooms. As a result of the 1986 EMTALA legislation, HOSPITALS ACROSS THE COUNTRY FACE UNPAID BILLS AND MOUNTING EXPENSES TO CARE FOR THE UNINSURED.

Corporations are not creatures of the state. They are institutions created by individuals who choose to pool their constitutional rights together for common purposes. When the federal courts first recognized corporations as “persons” under the Constitution, they made this point clear: “The property of a corporation is in fact the property of the corporators,” wrote Justice Stephen Field in 1882. “To deprive the corporation of its property, or to burden it, is, in fact, to deprive the corporators of their property or to lessen its value.” When government burdens a corporation, the rights of investors are burdened as well. Thus “the courts will look through the ideal entity and name of the corporation to the persons who compose it, and protect them, though the process be in [the corporation’s] name.”
