“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism.
But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment
of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation,
without knowing how it happened.”
– Norman Thomas (1884-1968) six time U.S. Presidential candidate for the Socialist Party
of America. Norman Thomas and Gus Hall, the U.S. Communist Party Candidates, both quit
American politics, agreeing that the Republican and Democratic parties had adopted every
plank of the Communist/Socialist party and they no longer had an alternate party platform
on which to run.
Willard Mitt Romney was born in 1947 in Detroit, Michigan to former Governor of Michigan, George W. Romney and his wife, Lenore Romney. He was raised in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan and attended Brigham Young University.
When Willard was a sophomore in high school he participated in the campaign for his father’s first term as Governor of Michigan. CFR member George Romney was reelected twice and Mitt even worked for him as an intern. He went to the 1964 Republican National Convention when his moderate father battled conservative Barry Goldwater for the party nomination over issues of civil rights and ideological extremism. The family ended up supporting Lyndon Baines Johnson for president.
Willard got his Juris Doctor/Master of Business Administration degrees from Harvard Law School and Harvard Business School. In 1966, Mitt left for France as a Mormon missionary which is a traditional duty of sons of Mormons. This was the first time Mitt was living a life of deprivation. With the rules of no drinking or smoking, he failed to gain many converts in France. The French Catholics are wine loving people and prove especially resistant to a religion that prohibits alcohol. His missionary years were not the best esteem builders, yet he still holds a great fondness for France.
Romney entered into management consulting and had a position at Bain and Company. He eventually served as its CEO and led it out of a financial crisis. He was the founder too of a spinoff company Bain Capital, a profitable equity investment firm. He had an excellent record of success with clients like Monsanto Company, Burlington Industries, and Corning Incorporated. Of course Monsanto is responsible for the majority of genetically modified organism (GMO) seeds and foods in our nation today.
He won the election for Governor of Massachusetts in 2002, but only served one term. The state was in financial peril and had a projected $3 billion shortfall. The reason it was in peril is like all states, the politicians overspend and then expect the taxpayers to make up the difference. Unexpected revenue came in from a previously enacted capital gains tax increase and $500 million in federal grants which decreased the deficit to $1.2 to 1.5 billion. Through some budget manipulating and cuts in state aid to cities and towns, and major cuts to universities which increased the tuition by 63% over four years, as well as his vetoing many items, although all were overridden by the Democrat majority legislature, he managed to bring in more to the Massachusetts treasury. What Romney really did to fix the budget was what most Governors, both left and right do. They raise taxes on the people of the state. He raised fees for marriage, driver’s, and gun licenses. He increased the state gasoline fee by 2 cents per gallon and he closed tax loopholes that caused businesses to pay more taxes. This brought in $541 million to the coffers, but created financial hardships on businesses in Massachusetts.
Of course this all didn’t last long with the adoption of the socialist universal health care mandate Willard gave Massachusetts. He promised it wouldn’t raise taxes, but incorporated a new payroll tax. He also pushed for incorporating an individual mandate at the state level. His past rival Ted Kennedy (he ran against Kennedy for Senator in 1994) who had pushed universal health coverage for years became a close friend of Romney’s and helped push the state’s Democrats into voting for it along with the Republicans.
With Romney Care all residents of the state are required to buy health insurance or face escalating tax penalties such as the loss of their personal income tax exemptions. This is, in effect a tax on their very existence in the state of Massachusetts! The most draconian sections of the bill that would put burdens on businesses were vetoed by Romney, but the Democrat legislature overrode them all. Romney Care also finances abortion with a $50 dollar co-pay. This entire bill was endorsed by Marxists Hillary Clinton, Teddy Kennedy. and of course Planned Parenthood who has now helped murder 56 million American babies in the womb with the help of plans like Romney Care.
At the same time Massachusetts also created a new state entitlement that was already trembling on the verge of bankruptcy inside of a year. It is called Commonwealth Care, it uses a sliding income scale to subsidize coverage for everyone under 300% of the federal poverty level, or about $63,000 for a family of four. In 2008, the year’s appropriation for Commonwealth Care was $472 million, but officials have asked for an add-on that will bring it to $625 million. For 2009, Governor Deval Patrick requested $869 million but conceded that even that huge figure is too low. Over the coming decade, the expected overruns float in as much as $4 billion over budget. So, despite Romney’s getting the state out of the red with new fees and taxes, he turned around and gave the state a huge new bureaucracy that now has it near bankruptcy.
Romney on Abortion
1994 – Romney stated, “I believe abortion should be safe and legal in this country. at boston.com
2001 – While campaigning in Utah, Romney said, “I am not pro-choice.” at observer.com
2002 – While in Massachusetts, Romney quipped, “I will preserve and protect a woman’s right to choose. at boston.com
2004 – Romney again magically became pro-life. at time.com
2005 – Once again in liberal Massachusetts, Romney spoke these words, “I am actually committed to my promise to maintain the status quo with regards to laws related to abortion and choice. He even exempted Catholic and Christian hospitals from refusing the morning-after pill in case of rape. at boston.com
Not only does Romney not advocate a ban on embryonic research, he actually supports government funding for the lethal use of the tiniest children for research, demonstrating the falsity of both his conversion and his account of it. And yet many pro-family “leaders” have chosen to ignore the truth, and believe lies. at boston.com
Now on the campaign trail again, he’s saying he’s pro-life, but let’s look at his record.
After he claimed a pro-life conversion, Willard Mitt Romney
- authorized tax-funded surgical elective abortion two years after he claimed he was pro-life. at boston.com
- advocated grisly research on embryos after he claimed a pro-life conversion.
- nominated a pro-abort Democrat judge after he claimed a pro-life conversiongave Planned Parenthood a permanent seat on a state board after he claimed a pro-life conversion.
- bragged that he would continue to defend abortion “rights” after he claimed a pro-life conversion.
His record is absolutely shocking and in another campaign speech he stated he is personally pro-life, but doesn’t want to push his personal religious beliefs on society. So, society’s cultural decline and the murder of 56 million innocent babies shouldn’t have any commentary from the religious sidelines?
To top it off, the Pro-Life Family Movement discredits themselves again and again. Many conservatives repeat his false claim of being pro-life including Ann Coulter, saying “Romney governed as a pro-lifer.” Jordan Sekulow through his father’s organization, ACLJ (American Center for Law and Justice) wrote, “Governor Romney would and still could make a great candidate.” Jay Sekulow is a CNP member. Tony Perkins (CNP) at the Family Research Council says Romney is, “solidly conservative across the board,” and a Focus Action Candidate Commentary video from Focus on the Family(CNP) shockingly agrees with Romney that, “on the social issues we are so similar.” Remember, these groups are members of the secretive Council for National Policy and nearly all are UN-NGO’s. As UN-non governmental organizations, they must agree with the planks of the Marxist UN to get NGO status.
These groups and people say all this of a man who:
- funded abortion statewide through taxpayer monies
- opposed a Massachusetts Defense of Marriage Constitutional amendment
- said homosexuals should be allowed in the boy scouts
- officially celebrated “Gay-Straight Youth Pride Day”
- sat on the board of directors for a leading purveyor of pornography without opposing the corporation’s exploitation of women
- instituted homosexual marriage
- was ahead of Barack Obama in promoting government controlled health care.
Willard Mitt Romney states, “On every piece of legislation, I came down on the side of life.”
Gay Rights and Marriage
When Romney ran against Ted Kennedy for Senator in 1994, he wrote a letter to the Log Cabin Republicans stating, “We must make equality for gays and lesbians a mainstream concern.” Romney also stated in 2002 that “All citizens deserve equal rights, regardless of their sexual orientation.” Willard said that domestic partnership status should be recognized in a way that includes the potential for health benefits and rights of survivorship. Most companies today give health benefits to homosexual partners. One of the first was the conservative company of Colorado, Coors Beer while their backyard neighbor and fellow Council for National Policy member James Dobson of Focus on the Family railed against one of the airlines for giving health benefits to homosexual partners.
Romney also supported hate crimes legislation during his campaign for governor. In 2002, Romney also opposed a Massachusetts constitutional amendment that would have banned same-sex marriage and domestic partnerships because the amendment would have prohibited domestic partnership benefits for gays and lesbians.
- supported Bill Clinton’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” and thinks it worked and shouldn’t be changed.
- boosted funding for homosexual “education” starting in kindergarten at massresistance.org
- opposes a ban on homosexual scoutmasters at boston.com
- forced Catholic Charities, the nation’s #1 adoption and foster care service to place children with same sex couples even though he was under no legal obligation to do so.
- passed over Republican lawyers for three quarters of the 36 judicial vacancies he faced and nominated two open homosexuals. at boston.com
- supports passage at the state level of the Employment non-discrimination Act which would force churches and other religious organizations to hire homosexuals and transvestites or face criminal fines and prosecution.
Global Warming/Climate Change and Cap and Trade
On CBS with Katy Couric in February, 2009, Romney said this, “I think the risks of climate change are real. And that you’re seeing real climate change. And I think human activity is contributing to it. I would develop within this country sources of energy which would allow us to be free of foreign oil. But sources that don’t emit CO2.” at cbsnews.com
“I believe the world is getting warmer, and I believe that humans have contributed to that,” he told a crowd of about 200 at a town hall meeting in Manchester, New Hampshire.” at reuters.com
Romney supports regulation of greenhouse gas emissions, primarily through voluntary measure. He would eliminate “dirty” coal power plants even at the cost of losing jobs because he believes coal plants kill people.
Illegal Aliens and Amnesty
Although Romney says he’s against amnesty for illegal aliens, he also says, “I don’t believe in rounding up 11 million people and forcing them at gunpoint from our country.” (Willard, it’s probably more like 40 or 50 million people here illegally and according to FBI statistics they murder 25 American citizens per day!) Willard says he would like to see illegal immigrants register with the government, pay taxes, and apply for citizenship. What? How about entering the country the way all our ancestors did? How about coming into this country legally? Does Willard have any idea of how many “other types” are crossing the border so easily?
Romney supported the infamous, No Child Left Behind, as well as the federal government’s involvement in education. See Char Iserbyt’s article on same at newswithviews.com. He approved efforts in Massachusetts to require parents in poorly performing schools to attend parental education classes. He also is for Charter Schools. See education expert, Char Iserbyt’s article on Charter Schools at newswithviews.com.
Willard Romney has stated in past campaigns that he is a proponent of gun control and fully supports a ban on assault weapons. He enacted a ban in Massachusetts on many so called “military style assault weapons.” Romney stated, “These guns are not made for recreation or self-defense. They are instruments of destruction with the sole purpose of hunting down and killing people.” Sorry Willard, but you don’t know squat about firearms, nor do you understand that the second amendment is the very teeth of the Bill of Rights. And you don’t even own a gun!
In 1994, Willard also supported the Brady Bill. The Center for Handgun Violence which is Sarah Brady’s organization, is responsible for countless lawsuits against manufacturers and various state firearm laws. They are rabid anti-gunners, as obviously is Willard Mitt Romney.
In 2004, as part of Willard’s goal to adopt a strategic approach to “land protection” in Massachusetts, he launched a plan to help cities and towns adopt “smart growth” policies that foster “sustainable development.” He stated that he wanted a more coordinated approach to “land conservation,” involving housing, environmental and transportation agencies.
As I mentioned in my previous article on Newt Gingrich, federal or state land grabs under the guise of sustainability are wholly unconstitutional. However, once again, elimination of land by the federal or state governments when it belongs to the people, is fully a plank of the communist manifesto.
Obviously Willard Mitt Romney is no conservative. His stances on issues are tainted with communist tenets, and I’ve only covered a few of them. Why then do people who claim to be “conservatives” and “Christians,” like Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Ann Coulter, Hugh Hewitt, Mark DeMoss, Richard Land, Stu Epperson, Jay Sekulow, Jim Dobson, Tom Minnery, and Tony Perkins, claim that he’s a conservative?
Sadly, we are dealing with many false friends of the constitution and what I call “controlled” opposition to the communist agenda.
Mitt Romney is more like his fellow Mormon, Harry Reid rather than the famous conservative Mormon, Glenn Beck. Of course Beck backed Willard for President and I would guess he backed him because they are both Mormons, just like many of the black electorate voted for Obama because he was the first so-called black American president.
The above facts regarding Romney’s platforms change depending upon which group he is speaking to and whether they’re liberal or conservative. However, his actions in Massachusetts as governor speak volumes about what Romney really stands for and it’s certainly not the constitution…more like the communist agenda.
His religion is difficult inasmuch as his great-grandparents were polygamists, and up until the 1960s the Mormon church disallowed black Americans in their membership in wards, stakes, or meeting houses, much less the Temple. The mere fact that Willard believes that when he dies he’ll ascend to becoming a god like Jehovah who will rule over a world like ours is enough to reject him as presidential fodder. Yes, I’ve known some wonderful Mormons in my life, but don’t bother to write and tell me this isn’t true or tell me all about Mormons. In my impetuous and misspent youth I was married to a Mormon.
We’ve many other candidates, many with far less communist tenets than Newt or Willard, but none that are really solid true constitutionalists. We’ll discuss them in the next article.
