Mitt Romney made some profound statements in his speech. I agreed with every one. Some of, to me, the most impressive, are these:
- God gave us liberty. We are all children of God.
- Every faith draws its adherents closer to god. Commitment to love and serve one another is common to all religions.
- He would put no doctrine of any church above the plain duties of the law.
- His oath of office is his highest promise to God. He would serve no one group, religion, cause, or interest.
- We should never jettison our beliefs to gain the world.
- Jesus Christ is Son of God and Savior of mankind.
- No candidate should be subject to a religious test, but that's what's occurring when a candidate is continually asked about his or her religion.
The most (the only) troubling aspect of Romney's speech is that it was given at the George Bush Presidential Library. Haven't we had enough of Bushes and Clintons in the last 25 years?
Mitt Romney, in his political perspective, (even if he is no longer pro-abortion, pro-homosexuality, and pro-gun control) is too much like the Bushes. And that troubles me. Just like the Bushes, Romney is cozy with the main problem with our country, the Council on Foreign Relations. The one common thread--the massive failure of our foreign policy and a part of the secular religion that Romney correctly decries--among the last several presidential administrations has been the Council on Foreign Relations.
Mitt Romney is a great man. But he would make only a good president. So I will not be supporting him, because there is one person in the presidential arena (and only one) that would be a great president. There is one candidate who clearly has no allegiance to the "Cancer" on Foreign Relations. That is why I am supporting Ron Paul.
