Why would I vote Romney Rino?

Why in the world would I vote for Mitt Romney? After all, the very "astute" Tea Party and Conservatives all are saying he is a Republican in Name Only.

I find this very  very interesting. These same people in 2007 were calling him the "Next Ronald Reagan". He hasn't been in any office since then. So what has changed? His record is the same. People then said he did a great job as a Conservative Governor in a state that had a veto proof legislature. If one bothered looking they would see that he was fighting for all the right causes on all of the right side of the fence.

I personally have studied the Governoral records of Mitt and Ronald. You might be surprised if you did study them. Mitts record was extremely better than Ronald Reagans. No disrespect intended to a great man. That is just the facts.

America has two issues that are destroying her. Ones that have to go addressed or America as we know it is going to be gone for good. Those two are Deficit Spending and the economy. Lets look at the people running. Michele Bachman is one choice. She has zero executive experience. She has never worked with a legislature balancing a budget. She has not fixed an economy. So why would I vote for her? There is no reason.

Herman Cain is a fine businessman, but zero political and political executive experience. So, in my mind for the huge task at hand, unqualified. Inexperienced.

Ron Paul has zero executive experience. Really has accomplished little in 30 plus years in office. Same spot too. Horrible on defense.

Rick Perry. I could point to all of his liberal stances in the past. But all I need to do is point out that spending has doubled in his tenure, and he has huge deficit spending. That disqualifies him from fixing a budget and controlled spending. Well many point to over 500 thousand jobs since
2007. On the first glance that sounds appealing. However when you look at what those jobs are, 300 thousand of them are Government jobs. Thats not good. What about the rest? Most of the rest are minimum wage jobs. So all of those jobs are misleading. They are also not good in a society. The taxpayers are paying for 300 thousand more jobs. Another issue is immigration. He is horrible on immigration. So, I have no reason to support a man that claims to be conservative, claims to be a republican and in actuality governs like a democrat. He is a much less version of Barrack Obama in his policies.

So why would I vote for Mitt Romney? You know...RomneyCare? Well before I get to that, lets look at some other issues that I believe are impressive.

Mitts economic record in a state that has a legislature that was 85% liberal is astounding. He balanced their budget that was 3 billion in the hole annually by cutting 341 social programs which is, if you dont get it, is downsizing Government. he did that in a Liberal state which in my opinion is a miracle in itself.

I found that very impressive. That link also shows how taxes went down. It tells how the state went from 50th in unemployment to 11th in his one term. You will also see how many of the things he implemented did this. He wooed 111 new businesses into the state. He didn't create Government jobs to put a further burden on taxpayers and a then bad economy. These were real jobs that you can live off of without the burden of the tax payer.

That alone should be enough to vote for Mitt over everyone else.  However one other issue he is strong on is Illegal Immigration. Here is his stance on that.
“There is a candidate that meets several criteria that are critical...
He also has by the way a solid record that matches his rhetoric...
I am endorsing Governor Mitt Romney for President...
He is the best hope for our cause.”

Tom Tancredo, perhaps the best known and most respected leader in the effort to stop illegal immigration, but just one of many who endorsed Mitt Romney

His record on Taxes is great. 

“As Governor, Mitt Romney pressed for several major tax cuts in the difficult blue-state environment of Massachusetts.” - Americans for Tax Reform

ov. Romney firmly commits himself in writing to fiscal discipline and economic common sense. Mitt Romney has told taxpayers in no uncertain terms that he plans to look out for their interests.” - Grover Norquist, President of Americans for Tax Reform

In 2002, Massachusetts' economy was rapidly deteriorating and the state government's deficit spending was growing (economic.htm). Antitax activist Barbara Anderson recalled:

“I was one of those who called Salt Lake City during the Olympics and begged him to come home to run, ...we taxpayers really needed a grown-up in the corner office. He hadn't planned to be that person, but after much urging on the part of many citizens, he gave in.”

“Unlike other candidates who only speak to the importance of confronting the major social issues of the day, Governor Romney has a record of action in defending life.”

 This should be enough then there is always the thing of "Romney Care. Mike Sage states it best.

 First of all, most people don't know that the MA health care solution wasn't something the government just sat around and dreamed up as an ideal health care plan. It was essentially an emergency solution to a funding shortfall caused by the federal government pulling $384 million out of the MA health care budget.

Drastic measures had to be taken, compromises had to be made on both sides of the political spectrum, and it was a matter of making the best of a bad situation. That being said, here are the pros and cons of the MA plan, as I see them:


* It did address the $384 million health care funding shortfall in 2005.

* It did make MA the top state in the nation for percentage of insured citizens.

* It did promote private health insurance solutions, a private sector intiative.
* It did encourage the ability to shop between insurance providers for the best deals.

* Whatever penalties and fees were attached were relatively low.

* A 2010 poll showed that 67% of MA residents were satisfied with it.

* It's never been ruled unconstitutional (versus Obamacare, which has been ruled unconstitutional by two federal appeals judges.)

* It did not involve any sort of a government "takeover" of any part of the healthcare or insurance industries.

* It was designed to be revenue neutral, requiring no taxes be raised.


* It included tax penalties for failing to obtain an insurance plan. Massachusetts tax filers who failed to enroll in a health insurance plan which was deemed affordable for them lost the $219 personal exemption on their income tax, a provision that Romney vetoed, but was overridden on.

* It gave too much authority to the Commonwealth Health Insurance Connector Authority, also known as the Health Connector.

* It provides free health care insurance for residents earning less than 150% of the federal poverty level

* The law also partially-subsidizes health care insurance for those earning up to 300% of the federal poverty level.

Many changes were made to the MA health care reform act after Mitt Romney left office. In October 2006, January 2007, and November 2007, bills were enacted that amended and made technical corrections to the statute (Chapters 324 and 450 of the Acts of 2006, and chapter 205 of the Acts of 2007).

Here are the vast differences between Obama care and the Mass health care and they are vast. Click Here .

I do not know what to say other than I have very good reasons to vote for Mitt Romney. My house needs re plumbing. I am going to get a master plumber and if you take the time to educate yourself instead of listen to fools say Romney Care and Rino, you will miss out on a Master Plumber who has repaired many homes. I ask you, take some time and find out the truth. With a little honest objective research you will walk away like I  did realizing he is about as conservative as you will find. He is very constitutional. He is no Rino
