Well, all respect for such a great man has just been flushed down the political toilet. How sad that someone that most of us have held in such high regard has become nothing more than another pawn for the secret campaign of reverse racism. Are there any outstanding influential African American figures endorsing McCain? Hmmm, I can’t seem to think of any.

I realize that many Black people are so excited to see their skin color in the White House that they are willing to cut off their nose to spite their face. What just amazes me is that I SO don’t think of our country in terms of Black and White that I am SO worn out having this shoved in my face. There are so many REAL problems going on in our country that this manufacturing of this issue is alarming. I am feeling silenced and as if I am living under Sharia law.

This constant manipulation to try to get me to feel guilt for something I don’t do (like being a racist) is driving me crazy. Does it not mean anything to anyone that those of us, so many generations since the horrible things done to African Americans, go out of our way to show you the kindest respect we can? I can’t even get on a bus without having to deal with the scowls of searing hatred, because I represent a person that “owes them something”. 

I am of British descent. My relatives were snuck up on in the middle of the foggy nights by Vikings and were raped and beaten and taking as slaves or had their throats slit or skulls crushed in. Thousands were taken in slavery. What good does it do to live in this mental and emotional landscape of hatred, resentment and delusion of entitlement? We are so sorry for you! We pray for you! Our relatives were enslaved too, but we are OVER IT! People and nations make mistakes, yes, but what makes us different from the baboons is the zoo is that we have the ability to reason. We do not have to be enslaved to our emotions. We, the human race, have been given the divine ability to rise above this. Please let us.

Colin Powell’s arguments against McCain were so fabricated he looked like nothing more than another African American puppet for Obama. I am not happy that McCain is the GOP nominee, I still think that Mitt Romney would be the best in our current economic situation. I am disgusted by the “politics” McCain used with his cohort Huckabee to shove Romney out. But, I am forced to let bygones be bygones.

But all that aside, McCain is on a great game with his grasp of the economy. He “sounds” as though he is clearly in touch with what America wants. If he had voted against the bailout, he would be the sure-fire future president of the United States. But we can sound out loud and clear, “we don’t want SOCIALISM!”

Was the Colin Card pulled out because team Obama can’t shake the Ayres monkey off their back? What about spreading Plumber Joe’s wealth around and then issuing Sharia law on him by trying to crucify him in the public square? I’m tired of Acorn cheating the election. I’m tired of Obama “raising” and “spending” so much money on his campaign. My vote can not be bought.

I know that money is coming from terrorists, they even are bragging about this. There are only so many reasons to need THAT kind of money, and I believe that at that level, they are NOT wholesome. I do wonder that this Obama is our Manchurian candidate for Al Qaeda.

Why would any candidate to become our nation’s president situate himself so far from our nation’s heritage and founding? Step back for a moment and consider this. The only time I felt this kind of sick feeling in my stomach was when I stood on the edge of the Grand Canyon staring into the gaping chasm scarred into our earth. It is unfathomable. Our nation is now staring at two candidates, one stands just within sight of our Constitution and the other is completely out of sight.

This angry, white, female is disgusted. There are NO unifying moments Obama is sending my way. If he really thinks any of these antics would cause me to CHANGE my vote to him by this is insulting and he’s got another thing coming. The anger he claims we feel is the old psychological phenomenon called “projection”. This is when people have strong feelings when themselves and “project” them onto another. In a twisted contortion, the individual then convinces himself that it is the other person who maintains those strong feelings. Obama “projects” his anger onto “white males”.

I will never forget the day after the OJ verdict. I went to downtown Cleveland for a class. A Black professor walked by while I sat in my nook waiting for class to start. He walked passed with the most smug glare staring down at me. I could read what the smug, icy glare meant. It was as if that day was when some of these people had finally WON. I could see that he was determined to spin the screws to anyone, including the little student sitting in her nook, minding her own business. He had been empowered. There was a satisfaction that he walked by with a pride I will never forget. It was the day I learned that a man could get away with murder.

I desire that all mankind be empowered. It is not anything that needs to be stolen, bribed or cheated. Power comes from within. It doesn’t need an Oval Office, it needs values. True power radiates from within.

So what are Obama’s core values? Is it to finally get even for the sins heaped upon his race? Or is it to hand our country over to our enemies because we deserve to be “punished” and “confined” to Socialism.  We may just soon find out.

“In a few short days, Republicans from across this country will decide more than their party’s nominee.  They will decide the very future of our party and the conservative coalition that Ronald Reagan built.  Conservatives can no longer afford to stand on the sidelines in this election, and Governor Romney is the candidate who will stand up for the conservative principles that we hold dear,” said Senator Santorum.  “Governor Romney has a deep understanding of the important issues confronting our country today, and he is the clear conservative candidate that can go into the general election with a united Republican party.”

Announcing Senator Santorum’s support, Governor Romney said, “I am honored to have Senator Santorum’s support.  Throughout his career of public service, he has always led with a steadfast commitment to our party’s conservative principles.  He has fought for life, marriage, tax cuts and a stronger national defense.  In the coming days, I look forward to working with him as we fight for our party’s conservative foundations.”

Mr. Santorum Served As United States Senator From Pennsylvania From 1995 To 2007 And As A Member Of The U.S. House Of Representatives From 1991 To 1995.

Well, it doesn’t take too much listening to figure this all out. Conservative talk radio is doing everything they can to educate and inform voters that Mitt Romney is the “real deal” (Sean Hannity this week).

Glenn Beck a super great fan, of course. Today Sean Hannity said it straight, but he has been a wonderfully supportive and rallying force behind Gov. Romney for several weeks and months. Here is his official support, as of today:

Rush has been very kind and started the Smitten Mitten “title” a couple weeks ago when a few very proud, pro-Romney women called in. It was actually pretty sweet as he could barely conceal a smidge of jealousy over the swooning Romney gals. I assure him that we love him too – and it’s not so much his hair, but the voice that we really go for with him ;o)

Tonight we listened to Michael Savage who was uncharacteristically calm but ever so eloquent and on point. He had only positive things to say for Gov. Romney, including that he is a “moral conservative”. This actually is a profound compliment considering that the American family has been left out of every other candidate’s stump speech. This is really shocking. It’s almost like our country is embarrassed about the most fundamental unit of society.

If nothing else, this week’s support of Conservative Talk Radio has been nothing short of a miracle. What all of these people have come to assess is the most amazing validation of the LDS faith into the realm of true values and conservatism. “By their fruits ye shall know them” is the very essence of what Mormons are all about. There is something, great things, to be said of a people, who, in this day and age, stand for virtue and excellence.

Mitt Romney is the complete essence of what we stand for. If only our family could approximate the success of the Romney’s. Mitt Romney is somewhat of a convert to conservatism and so am I. I actually am still trying to undo decades of liberal indoctrination from public and Catholic school systems. After that I spent 10 years at Universities undergoing the most socialist indoctrination known to mankind. There were no conservative influence to be found anywhere in my life – excepting my father, a British doctor in England who left that country because of socialized medicine. He came here, became a U.S. citizen and lived the American dream becoming quite successful in his practice.

So I find it repugnant of anyone who claims to be a Republican or Conservative who criticizes people coming into the Reagan house. This is simply a kind of liberal rhetoric. It is not a contest. Remember the workers in the vineyard? There are some who will join at the end of the day and and they will all be paid the same. I, at middle age, am finally able to embrace the inherent worth of this amazing Republic and the Divine Inspiration which raised up this great nation. Those who are lucky enough to be on this ride for a long time, be grateful. 

We are proud to support Gov. Mitt Romney in his bid to the White House. Having evaluated all of his record, his conversion is the “real deal”. He and his family are remarkable Americans and some in this nation are terrified that someone so clean will undoubtedly outshine them. This is not something to hold barbaric vindictiveness as in the case of Huckabee not bowing out of his failed race. Nor the tenuous and poisonous corrupt McCain. This country deserves virtue and greatness. Gov. Mitt Romney is the man of character this country needs.

“My Vote”

Captain’s Quarters

Posted by Ed Morrissey

January 27, 2008

“Over a year ago and many times since, I wrote that I could give no endorsement, because I had honestly not made up my mind about which candidate to support. I also told the CapQ community that if I did make a decision, I would announce it as soon as I made it so that they knew where I stood. The deadline for that decision rapidly approaches, since Minnesota caucuses on February 5th, and I have decided to caucus for Mitt Romney.”

“Third, we face a tough election if the economy turns south, even mildly. We saw this in 1992 and lost when Bill Clinton successfully convinced people that he had the best ideas for a turnaround. We have one candidate who has undeniable success in the global markets, who understands them and the players that run them. Romney gives us an advantage as the nominee that none of the others can match in this regard.

“Over the last two weeks, my focus has come down to Rudy and Romney. Both would make good Presidents. Mitt, however, has shown that he will fight in every state, while Rudy played a bit of rope-a-dope — and has apparently lost the gamble. Until the debate, I thought Rudy might have had the right idea, but Rudy still hasn’t come out of the gate in any effective manner.

“Romney is not a perfect candidate. We don’t have any perfect candidates. In fact, I could still support Rudy, McCain, or Mike Huckabee without reservation in a general election against either Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton. I think, though, that Romney has the most staying power, the better argument, and the best resume of the remaining Republican candidates. I will enthusiastically caucus for Mitt Romney on February 5th.”…
