Free Republic Forum Post: Why I’m Voting for Mitt Romney and Why You Should Too

The first reason is easy: Barack Obama. It is shocking to think that a Marxist could ever be president of the United States. But it happened. People always ask, “How could those people have sat back while _______ came to power. That could never happen here.” Well, it did happen here. As a nation, we sat back and let Barack Obama win in 2008, and look at what we got. Granted, John McCain was not much of an alternative.

Some people might argue that the reason I don’t like Barack Obama is because he’s black. There’s no truth it. There are a number of black people I would love to see sitting in the White House, not because the’yre black, but because their worldview is right.

Blacks have been duped by blacks. You don’t have to be in chains to be a slave, and there are more blacks in slavery today than there were in the 1850s.

If Romney wins, there will be a coattail effect, but not if disgruntled conservatives and Paulians stay home. This means that we can beef-up the conservative votes in the House and Senate. If we don’t get behind Romney, it’s almost assured that we will lose congressional seats.

Some will say that Romney’s just like Obama. That’s nonsense. Is Romney as conservative as I would like to see in a candidate? No. But he’s more conservative now than when he was governor of Massachusetts. The primary forced him to the right. Will he remain as conservative as his recent rhetoric seems to indicate? I don’t know. That’s why we need a strong Congress to put a brake on any broken-promise policies.
