The Passion of Romney

 Occassions do not make a man either strong or weak but they show what he is.

~Thomas Kempis

A wonderful and morally courageous speech by Presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

“…What do I believe about Jesus Christ? I believe that Christ is the Son of God and the Savior of mankind. My church’s beliefs about Christ may not all be the same as those of other faiths. Each religion has it own unique doctrines and history. These are not bases for criticism but rather a test of our tolerance. Religious tolerance would be a shallow principle if it were reserved only for faiths with which we agree. …”

“…[T]he notion of separation of church and state has been taken by some beyond its original meaning,” Romney said. “They seek to remove from the public domain any acknowledgement of God. Religion is seen as merely a private affair with no place in the public life. It is as if they are intent on establishing a new religion in America – the religion of secularism. They are wrong. …”

“…We should acknowledge the Creator as did the founders – in ceremony and word. He should remain in our currency, in our pledge, in the teaching of our history and, during the holiday seasons, nativity scenes and menorahs should be welcome in our public places. …”

Most if not all traditional conservatives and libertarians would agree with former Governor Romney as would the majority of the American people.

The American Liberal left and religious bigots appear to be the primary ones that keep bringing up the candidate’s religious faith.

Fortunately the vast majority of the American people could care less that Mitt Romney is  member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints or Mormon Church.

For those still interested in the religious affiliation of past Presidents of the United States, here is link to a complete list:

I will resist making any comments of their performance as President so as not offend those who are easily offended–the political correct police,

The American people are electing a President of The United States of America and Commander in Chief.

The American people are not selecting a religion or pastor or establishing a national religion.

A candidate’s religion should not be an issue and those raising Mitt Romney’s religion run a very high risk of alienating many voters.

There are two major political issues that the American people are demanding action and a new direction: illegal immigration and taxes on consumption not income with a national sales tax.

Most of the Republican candidates are right on the illegal immigration or criminal alien removal issue but very few are addressing taxes on consumption and supporting the Fair Tax.

Now if Governor Romney would only support the Fair Tax I would vote for him for President. 

He is right on immigration but the American people want taxes on consumption not income–the Fair Tax.

Unfortunately he has an political advisor on taxes that does not support the Fair Tax.

Please Governor read the book on the Fair Tax

Wall Street Journal’s Stephen Moore on Marketplace Morning Report
9/11/2007

While Congress wraps up a four-day hearing on a wide gamut of tax issues, commentator Stephen Moore offers a fair alternative: a national sales tax.

Comes the Fair Tax

The latest in the push for saner, more effective taxation in the United States

MARK HEMINGWAY
9/24/2007

“…The biggest success story of the 2008 Republican primary season isn’t about a candidate. It’s about an issue: FairTax, a proposal that would eliminate income taxes outright and replace them with a national sales tax. From relative obscurity a year ago, the FairTax campaign has come to dominate Republican politics at the grassroots level, especially in battleground states like Iowa, where the GOP’s state chairman has said, “The most important economic reform Congress can enact to win the fight against poverty is the FairTax.”

Implementing FairTax would, in short, throw the existing tax code out the window and replace it with a national sales tax. Given that most Americans hate the IRS with the heat of a thousand suns, it’s surprising only that a proposal to completely overhaul the American tax system hasn’t caught fire earlier on the campaign trail. But now, FairTax is smoking. …”

Mitt’s Hour of Power

“If Mitt Romney wins the Republican nomination, it will be due in large measure to his splendid and moving defense of his faith and beliefs delivered today at the George Bush Presidential Library. The address was courageous in a way John F. Kennedy’s speech to the Baptist ministers was not. Kennedy went to Houston to assure the ministers he agreed with them on virtually every issue where they differed with the Catholic agenda and that his faith would not affect any decision he made as president. He called himself “the Democratic Party’s candidate for president who happens also to be a Catholic.”
