Landslide for Romney
To the Editor:
I sense a landslide victory for Mitt Romney in the November election. What constitutes a landslide victory? There is no hard and fast number in history, but suffice it to say that a 10 percent margin over his opponent in the popular vote should be more than adequate for that distinction.
The news media, as everyone knows by now, is terribly biased in their reporting and most likely in their polling as they attempt to influence events.
Americans have, by and large, always voted with their pocket books as sane people invariably do, especially in a dire economy.
Capitalism has been a key component in making this country the most prosperous in the history of the world and the bastion of freedom and hope.
It always amazes me when people believe that politicians invariably have their constituent’s best interest at heart. There are more felons in the U.S. Congress per capita than in the general population.
A politician that says they can “feel your pain” and subsequently ask what is “is” only seeks diversion. The simple answer to that question is that “is” incorporates the characteristics of the subject matter as in, “What is goodness?” It is the attributes of goodness.
To be sure, there have been good men on both sides of the political aisle, and I believe Mitt Romney is one of them. He incorporates many of the attributes of goodness. Namely, he is a church patriarch, a solid family man and an experienced job creator looking to give back to the country after an amazingly successful career. He understands capitalism and how it works.
His opponent, Obama, was a “community organizer.” I have yet to understand what a Community organizer is or to have someone define it for me.
Did he organize church bazaars or trips to the zoo? What practical experience qualifies him to lead this great country? If they herald a community organizer as a status of some significance why not herald his achievements as well? Perhaps the emperor has no clothes.
Thoughts to ponder.
