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. He eventually grew Big J into a multi-million dollar corporation with over 1000 employees. By the time he sold the company, in 1999, it was one of New Mexico's leading construction companies."
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.
