Police State Mitt Romney

May 7, 2012 by  

Police State Mitt Romney
UPI
Mitt Romney said he would have signed the National Defense Authorization Act.

A vote for Mitt Romney is a vote for the overreaching homeland security initiatives put in place by the George W. Bush Administration Department of Homeland Security.

According to reports, the Presidential candidate was instrumental in helping to create some of the most controversial safety initiatives put into place by the Bush Administration in the years following the attack on the World Trade Centers in New York.

According to the Huffington Post, during his tenure as Governor of Massachusetts, Romney issued executive orders to set up two of the Nation’s first fusion centers — the intelligence hubs where vast amounts of Americans’ personal data is analyzed by law enforcement agencies — in his State.

Romney’s security record makes it seem that he believes that everyone is essentially guilty until proven innocent, which is largely in line with current Department of Homeland Security policy.

In a September 2005 speech to the Heritage Foundation, Romney gave Americans a good idea about what the security state might be like under his Administration by advocating wiretaps in mosques and churches when he uttered the words: “Are we monitoring that? Are we wiretapping? Are we following what’s going on?”

Earlier in the campaign, Romney also let Americans know that he is in line with President Barack Obama on issues such as the National Defense Authorization Act, which makes possible the capture and indefinite detainment of American citizens.

“Yes, I would have,” said Romney when asked during a debate whether he would have signed the legislation, as Obama did. “…I recognize that in a setting where they are enemy combatants and some of them on our own soil, that could be abused. There are lots of things I think this president does wrong — lots of them — but I don’t think he will abuse this power, and if I were president I would not abuse this power.“

Romney knows the power of police state tactics in protecting the elite. The director of operations of his 2008 Presidential campaign, Jay Garrity, was placed on a paid leave of absence in 2007 while the authorities investigated accusations that he impersonated a State trooper in Massachusetts and harassed reporters that were following the campaign by pulling them over.

Garrity worked on planning events for the campaign and also helped control access to Romney.

    He may be on to something in that the Mormon church is one of the most secretive organizations in the world.Nobody but a Mormon can enter their churches, even Ann Romney’s parents could not attend their wedding at the church because they were not Mormons.Then again there may no need to wiretap other churches and mosques in that Romney once he was baptized he became a prophet and speaks directly to God so he could just ban all churches except for what he believes is the true church.They believe if you are not a baptized Mormon you are just a heathen that worships a pagan symbol such as the cross.If anybody perhaps they should be wiretapped and he just may be blowing smoke to take the scent away from their misdeeds.

      jopa,
      You’ve managed to show you’re true ignorance oh so well once again. Blame this, blame that, blame the other, has to be someone else’s fault for sure. Especially Mormons! Typical fool at his best. :(

      • Karolyn

        Sirian – Do you know anything about the LDS? When I was being proselytized by a couple, I did a fair amount of research and turned and ran away after initially thinking it sounded like a pretty good religion.

      • Sirian

        Karolyn,
        I’ve had friends that were Mormons and they most certainly are nothing as jopa has yakked about. Think back for a moment. . . was there not quite a controversy over JFK being a Catholic when he was running for the presidency? Remember? This is simply another way that the opponents of “whomever the candidate may happen to be” to jump on them via their religious beliefs/affiliations. How often have the evangelicals been jumped on? Remember? Democrats/Progressives and yes, even Republicans at times have followed the same format. A well known political tactic, simple as that. That’s why it is idiocy in it’s own right.

      • http://folkartist.wordpress.com Libertytrain

        I thought religion was not an issue – particularly with the lib left – yet it is they who are demonizing the Mormons – pick and choose once again with them. Do as I say not as I do, once again the left’s motto rings true.

      • boone1

        Ilook at it this way if Romney wins he will be the white obamaHe will keep doing the same old crap that everyone does when they get in office me i going to write in RON PAUL i don’t Romney and i don’t trust him he also is for the NWO thats all i have to say

      • Karolyn

        I was on the brink of joining them after being schooled a couple of times. Then I decided to do my research. All I have to say is that after I found some information from Mormons who had been kicked out of or left the church (one of whom became a Baptist pastor), I was totally turned off and frightened away. It’s like any large Church. The little people may be fine, but the hierarchy calls the shots. They are too discriminatory in their practices. Women are less than men and not allowed in the Temple. Many tend not to help anyone not of their religion – unless they turn them. There is much to be found online. Many say that Joseph Smih was insane. I make no judgment on LDS members, but their religion scares me.

    • http://firefox wog1

      Do some checking before you say there maybe some truth to that. Anyone can attend a Mormon Church at any time. Check your bible for religious rights on temple worship. Church worship is not temple worship. But I am sure you will not bother to check it out if might just change your opinion and you would not want that.

      • JON

        You’re being a little bit dramatic. Don’tcha think?

    • MAP

      Jopa, you give us reasons to fear others’ religions and you lecture us on how oppressive and unjust they can be in practice. Yet, you don’t warn us of the left’s replacement religion of secular humanism. It and Islam are, without question, the two most oppressive and unjust religions on the planet today. Why, if you are sincere in your fears, do you not warn us of this religious tyranny?

      • eddie47d

        You make for a good conversation but it might not be to your liking. How many worldly people have died at the hands of Christians and did so in the name of God? Religions whether Muslims (killings in North Africa when that religion was founded). Hindus killing on the Pakistani border.Buddhists(Japan and China killing each other) before WWII. Catholics slaughtering millions in the Caribbean and the Americas during their conquests. Protestants killing millions in Europe for centuries. I may be a Christian but I don’t put my head in the sand when it comes to dirty religious deeds. The Mormons have their infamous Mountain Meadows Massacre in Utah although that pales in comparison to some of the others.

      • MAP

        Yeah, Eddie and let’s talk about the 30 millions that died in the Soviet Union by the secular, leftist state. Then we can move on to the 50 millions that died in the secular state of Red China. That you speak of was not done by Christians, it was done by sinners. Your argument is no argument. It is the argument of an atheist, someone that wants to make the rules and decide who lives and who dies. Secular humanism is the religion of death and oppression. Man, the imperfect fool, become god.

      • eddie47d

        The Crusades were also a series of false wars perpetrated by the Elites of that time and the Christian religion was the “backbone” to send these men to their deaths. Take the beam out of your own eye before trying to take the sliver out of mine.

    • Steve E

      Jopa, you are so wrong about the Mormon Church. Anyone can walk into a church or church services without being a member. The Temple is where only Mormons in good standing can go. The Mormons do not criticize the crucifix, they do not display it because they feel that if your own son was crucified, would you want to mount an image of you son on a wall nailed to a cross? Perhaps some people see that differently, but that’s ok too. They just don’t. You haven’t read the doctrines of the church and should not criticize it until you do.

      • Steve E

        In spite of the above statement, I voted for Ron Paul in the primaries.

      • JON

        Yes. You can walking into a Mormon Chruch. However, you have to be a member of the Mormon Church in good standing in order to enter a Mormon Temple.

    • Ladyhawke

      jopa,
      I believe that you are talking about the “temple” and their super secretive ceremonies held there. Anyone can go into the churches, that is one way that they proselytize people. We went to a funeral for a friend at a mormon church.

      • Ladyhawke

        By the way, I will not vote for Romney and it has nothing to do with him being a Mormon. Same with bo, nothing to do with skin color. Everything to do with their politics.

      the ignorence people show like this jopa remarks are amasing, the mormon churches are all open to any people wishing to know about them, the only thing not open is there temples because they believe them to be holy, were ALL going to hear nothing but falsehoods now until the elections. If someone wants to know what the mormons believe than inquire from there missionaries?? and stop the false statements.

    • boyscout

      Mitt is a Rebublocrat politician first and a Mormon, (add in a series of attributes separated by comas) after that. The operative word is “politician” and it is used in the contemporary sense of “for sale.” Elitist and wealthy, yes. Yet still quite affordable to the few who care not how their stooge is labeled, what color he/she is, or how long he/she remains in office. All is well as long as the next one is in the pocket too.

    • ranger5

      I am a Mormon, my wife attends the temple, so you are off base with you’re comments. Everyone is an expert. I am a convert to the church, I did my research also.We are happy as a family in the Church. I will not argue which religion is the best nor will I trash any other. We are Christians just as any other is. All the Book of Mormon is translation by Smith from Moses and Christ with ties to America. Please don’t comment about what you don’t know about. I don’t know if Romney will be a great pres or not I do think he is a decent man with good family values. I am not voting for him because he is a Mormon or not> I think the pres should be a religious person, one should pray for guidance when making a decision that affects the population of this great country. I am NOT saying the the Mormon church or any other should control the pres in his/her decisions. We as a country should/need to return to the family values, the love of our country, and the things that made us great. We should not be ashamed for being an American. The current pres doesn’t seem to understand that.I am an American, Conservative, Mormon, Army Combat Vet and proud of it. If Romney gets the nomination support him, if by chance another Republican wins it support them, We need Obama out of the White House. If Romney doesn’t measure up to what we as Americans deserve, vote him out. Don’t play the religion game. I supported Pres Bush, some of you didn’t. I believe he is a good man. Lets get our country back on track

      ROTFLMAO! Jopa, that’s the silliest allegation I’ve heard in months, thank you for the gut buster. Having many friends who are morman, I’ve been invited to their churches on numerous occasions and have attended weddings held in their churches. As to outsiders being heathen and not getting to heaven??? oh hell! what denomination doesn’t have that personna hanging in the air, however slight; that’s just economics, follow the money trail. Thanks for the laughs, I appreciated it!

      The Church is open to the public whereas the Temple is not.

  • Vigilant

    Mr. Rolly says, “Romney knows the power of police state tactics in protecting the elite. The director of operations of his 2008 Presidential campaign, Jay Garrity, was placed on a paid leave of absence in 2007 while the authorities investigated accusations that he impersonated a State trooper in Massachusetts and harassed reporters that were following the campaign by pulling them over.

    “Garrity worked on planning events for the campaign and also helped control access to Romney.”

    Now THAT’S what I call dirty pool! How about “the rest of the story,” Mr. Rolley?

    From http://www.politico.com/blogs/jonathanmartin/0208/Jay_Garrity_did_NOT_make_that_phone_call_.html

    “Per AP’s Glen Johnson, the local DA in Boston has decided not to bring charges against former Romney body guy Jay Garrity.

    “As many of you will recall, Garrity was thought to have impersonated a state trooper in a phone call that got wide coverage last summer.

    “But apparently there is no evidence that he did so and actually much that it wasn’t him.”

    Using this non-fact to imply that Romney is a statist is not quite in accord with your bio above that says, “He is dedicated to seeking the truth and exposing the lies disseminated by the mainstream media at the behest of their corporate masters, special interest groups and information gatekeepers.”

  • mickey2

    The most important thing you can do this election is to pay attention to the part of the ballot for “delegates”. If you know they are RPers, vote only for them. i.e., the ballot says vote for “no more than 18″ and only 5 are RPs, then vote only the 5.

    We are winning the “delegate” race. We need all the RPers going to state conventions and then on to nationals.

    Ron Paul has already won the majority in 5 states (required) to be on the ballot. We need the delegates to sweep the nationals for the nominee.

    Also check after the primarey to see if there are available delegate positions still open. Then volunteer to pay the fee. Then sign up–the local RNC chair assigns these. You sign up as a republican, not a RPer.

    Right. Look, it is either Mitt or Barry. Mitt was not my choice, by a long shot, but that train has left the station. Folks that are still dredging up what is wrong with Mitt are not thinking clearly about what an Obama Supreme Court will look like.

    • http://- Connie

      You are absolutely right Bob, what would another four more years of Obama get us?
      I would vote for a rock before I would vote for him.

      • http://none America’s Last Chance

        Cute analogy but a rock doesn’t listen either. What we need is not a president who thinks he knows best but a president who will pick the best people for the positions needed to keep our ship of state from sinking. We also need a new congress. The old one, especially the senate, can’t even fulfill the Constitutional mandate to have a yearly budget. The House has sent dozens of bills to the Senate and there they languish. We need a new president, but even more we need a new Senate!

    • http://none America’s Last Chance

      Yes, if Obama and the Progressives get to pack the Supreme Court that will be it for the USA and freedom as we have known it. Already they have put two liberals on the court. It’s sad that the court is as politicized as it is but can we expect more out of our leaders we do out of ourselves? A nation’s leaders tend to reflect the people who elect them. Only a return by the citizens of this nation to the morality of the founders of this nation can save this nation that was founded on Biblical principles. It was the principles of the Bible (not those of varying interpretations) upon which this nation was founded. There are many who hate God, and hate religion although God is not the most religious being in the Universe (the Devil has that honor) and some of them have power in this country because we have not countered them with the light of truth, but the mediocrity of relativism.

      All religions of men are not equal. The Mormon church teaches errors just as do many other man made denominations but it is the heart of people that God looks at, what you do with what you know. I could never be a Mormon because the book I value (The Bible) says not to listen to any other gospel than the one that Jesus gave us, and one of the things the New Covenant or New Testament says is that even if an angel from Heaven comes with a different gospel not to listen. Apparently Joseph Smith and Mohammed did listen. However that doesn’t mean that all Mormons or Muslims are evil, only mistaken.

      We are not electing a saint to the presidency but a man (and someday a woman). The ravings of atheists and those who want to be their own god, a move that reduced the most brilliant being that God ever created, into a lawless shadow of his former self, an ego centric being who still believes that he is god – well such will be the fate of all those who knowingly oppose truth and real justice, not the “socialized justice” of the Marxists.

      We were once a great nation. We did great things. We haven’t fallen from the precipice yet but we are perilously close. The time for petty bickering is over. The time for prayer is NOW! We were once believers. Some still are, and it is on their shoulders that the fate of this nation depends. Only prayer to the loving Father of us all, can stop the eventual demise of this nation. Our ship of state is already lisping so sharply that only a divine miracle can save us from greater suffering than is already inevitable – the tripling of the price of food (and fuel as the progressives want so badly) will hurt not just the poor but the middle class as well. Only the fervent prayers of the righteous, for God to take action in the hearts of men to save this nation, can save it. Since those who hate freedom and God don’t believe in prayer it is up to those who believe to take up the slack. All those who believe must cry out to the one and only God, the great “I am that I am” who spoke to Moses, that His will be done on his nation and all the world.

      I have written about the coming financial crisis for 22 years now and it has begun. A decade ago 200 to 300 thousand people year left the country each year but in the last couple of years it appears that number has increased to a couple of million per year who are leaving. A decade ago nearly 100,000 millionaires somehow vanished from the United States in a single year, yet for the vast majority, I don’t think it will do any good to leave in the long run. God is preparing not just to chastise the United States but the world. There are those who say God is not doing all this that we are doing it to ourselves. Since some of these are people I respect I can only tell you what I heard when I was praying. It was a voice that was as strong as steel: MY HAND OF JUDGEMENT WILL STRETCH FOR AND ALL WILL FEEL IT, SOME MUCH MORE THAN OTHERS. FEAR NOT!

      Since I don’t want to feel what is coming as sharply as some will, I endeavor to seek God while He may be found. He will never turn His back on those who love Him but he will not hear the prayers of the unrighteous and those who knowing choose the “dark side”. We must not go “Forward” into further darkness but all who believe in the true God of the Universe need to put aside petty differences and unite to face the greater enemy who would enslave us all. The choice is ours. God help us!

      • Steve

        Ok, so let me get this straight. You say Joseph Smith, a fourteen year old boy, can’t receive revelation and follow the direction to a place where records were stored, can’t be given them by an angel, can’t translate the language according to and under the direction of deity, and start a legitimate church by divine instruction; and yet a few paragraphs latter you personally hear the voice of direction. Maybe you ought to ask the right question.

        You seem studied so you also probably know about the council where politics of government ruled what was published in the BIBLE and what was not. That was so we would all have the unity of view and would not have any dissention among the many churches of the time. From that you probally understand that true doctrine was changed for political reasons.

        You may also read one of the even latter versions of the Bible with the NEW prefix. And yet stand on the fact that you can’t have a new book that tells you anything. HUM! Seems like the Mormons are about 14 million strong, world wide now and growing, and you are how many? 1? Keep talking I am really leaning toward you point of view.

        For the rest of the readers,

        Here is an interesting little exercise that can be applied to find out where someone is on the subjects. Take a piece of paper and draw a line down the middle of it.

        Imagine your favorite image of Christ standing at the top of the line looking at you face forward with his arms stretched out to his sides. He is facing you so his right hand is on the left and the left hand in on the right of the page.

        Now grab your Bible and find the Ten Commandments.

        List them on the left side of the page.

        Now look at any law or political point of view in question.

        Compare that to the corresponding principal (a commandment) you wrote down.

        As an example:

        Thou shall not kill. VS Abortion on request.

        Or, Thou shall not covet VS those rich guys should have to pay more. It’s not fair!

        Or, how about thou shall not bear false witness VS the attack slander against Romney’s security guard.

        You get the idea I am sure. Now go to Matt chapter 25- verse 33 -46 and find out what he says about where you will be at the end of time. King James Version is best for my meaning here. Here is the big question! Do you want to be a sheep or a goat? Bottom line it will matter when you leave this world.

        In case you don’t know it, this battle is a world battle and is about only one thing. Like it or not it is about who will follow Christ and be on his right hand and who will not. That decision is always your choice, always just moment by moment and day by day. I Hope you make a good one. It would seem that it is the most important choice you can make.

      Jeff, that is something we will have to determine once all the lies are through and we watch him in action. Is he a neocon puppet, like Bush before him? The neocons are followers of Trotsky and basically control the Republican Party. I, for one, don’t feel at all relieved.

    anybody except obama

    • dufas magnet

      “anybody but obama”.. How about Ron Paul dave? You behind us on him or are your rebel yells a continuation for him as well? “Anybody ELSE but Paul”.. Be honest now.. Anybody but Obama opens the door for Ron Paul and not specifically your munch buddy Mittens.. so, maybe you should rephrase that Neo-’CON’ chant.

        It is all about NO CHOICE – Obama or Romney – give me a break. IF Obama had done what he promised to do he would be a slam dunk – but he proved himself to be just another lying puppet of the military industrial complex.

        Ron Paul is the ONLY choice.

        • John Wilch (TSgt, USAF Ret.)

          BBJ, Ron Paul scares the hell out of me. I like some of his domestic policies, but his foreign policies are just plain dumb. He wants to pull all our troops out and close all our bases overseas that is just assinine: you don’t close your eyes and ears to the actions of our enemies no matter where they happen to be. I talk from experience, one of my duties while in the military was a Scout (19D30: Armored Recon Specialist). Those bases are acting as our eyes and ears and we need them.

          I’m casting my vote for Romney, he believes a strong defence and a strong economy.
          Furthermore, he won’t bow and scrape to every two-bit Dictator or Tyrant like Obummer has done. Obummer has lied to the American people (like the story of the boy who cried wolf) so much that nobody knows which side of his mouth to believe. Our enimies are laughing at us because they think and believe that we are weak.

          We need to rememember what Teddy R. said “Carry a big stick and walk softly.” or even what Ronny R. said: “Trust but variefy.”

          GOD BLESS AMERICA and MAY SHE REIGN FOREVER!

    Remember Warren Jeff’s keep in mind, his doctrine came from the same ideology, as Mitt Romney, and with Jeff’s as we all know had sex with many young women, some as young as 13, all the while the cults family mothers, allowed this behavior, even had secret bedroom, to do their dirty deed’s, yes. The Mormons are a cult.

      Good Grief Sarah… Get your facts straight…Warren Jeff was the president of the FUNDAMENTALIST Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS Church). that is totally different from the Mormon church. Just because the liberal media showed the Mormon office building in Salt Lake City while reporting on the Warren case who was in west Texas-He was also wanted in Utah as well, which is why he fled…doesn’t mean he was a Mormon. Don’t be caught up in their lies… read woman read… As Glen Beck states- “Educate Yourself” Again Sarah- Warren Jeff has Nothing to do with the Mormon church- and yes I agree with libertytrain- there’s creeps in all religions..

    I know that romney is just another player in the group that stands with hobama.i’ve said all along that the socialist play both sides of the isle, and place their candidates in the mix, so that either way they have a chance of having one of their people win. but it doesn’t matter, if one of theirs doesn’t pull through, the ballot box will be stuffed with fraudulent votes just as it was for hobama. and that’s the truth about it all, a bunch of thugs. The socialist power is here in America, we are already under their grasp and no one wants to admit it.

  • e1313ruth

    If you do not vote for Romney you will have to vote for a muslim…..Muslims are liars and killers and blasphemers…Mormons are peaceful honorable people….even if their rfeligion is wrong….
    As I see it there is no other choice….
    As for Huff Post, it is a filthy lying antichrist rag that bows at Obama’s throne….

      Are you voting for the party…or are you voting for president? Mitt= McLame 2. The man simply has too much baggage to go the distance against O.
      There is only one man that has consistantly won in polls against the O h no…and that man is Ron Paul…who, BTW, doesn’t have any baggage…he travels light….(and doesn’t charge it to the taxpayers).
      A vote for Ron Paul…is a vote FOR AMERICA
      A vote for anyone else…..is traitorous…plain and simple.

    • Jody L

      I’m voting for Ron Paul. Period. Want to beat Obama? Then chose the correct nominee, period! NOW let’s see who really believes your argument!

      • John Wilch (TSgt, USAF Ret.)

        JL, Paul has vertually suceeded to Romney the other day by suspending his campaign in the states that he feels will not be voting for him. Furthermore, the man scares me to much to even consider voting for him. As Lucinda said earlier do you want a Race-bater, a socialist/Marxist and more failed policies or do you want some one who will try and bring us back from the brink of total collapse.

        Also, I want some one who knows when to let a business collapse and when to help it out. Also, I want some one who will not bow down to a two-bit Dictator/Tyrant; so I feel that right now that man is Mitt Romney. Oh, I was for Rick Santorum but when he withdrew I decided that Mitt was my man.

        GOD BLESS THE US OF A and MAY SHE REIGN FOREVER!

    An attempt to keep American citizens safe IS NOT to say that anyone is guilty until proven innocent. That’s the biggest crock of bull manucia I’ve ever heard.

He is in control what happens here in this world….Satan is the counterfeit, there will always be good/bad until Jesus comes.

    How many times during the election run off w/ Bush and obummer was religion brought up .. It was un American to keep reminding us that obummer was a commie or islam . How many times did they show obummer giong to rev Wright’s church? very slowly allowing islam to be used to show who obummer is. Now all those that just love obummer the islam cant say enough negative toward Mormanism. Mormans do not have such things as seria law and jehad for the infadel , but look at how many people just worship obummer. That same group will embrace voodooism if obummer so states that as his religion . but God forbid ,.. a Morman?

    With apologies, RIP Charles Shultz.

    Lucy: Charlie Brown, I’m here and I’m all ready to hold for your game winning field goal!

    Charlie Brown: What? Not you again. You always jerk the football away at the last instant and I do a huge back flop and feel like an idiot. I’m not going to let you fool me again this year.

    Lucy: Oh but you have to let me hold again. I’ve been chosen, and besides, You know I wouldn’t do that again, this is the most important game EVER.

    Charlie Brown: That’s the same thing you said last time, even though you wore a mask, everybody knew it was you. That mask and your other skin weren’t even the same color. And what happened when I let you hold? Flop whop arrgh. Well not this time. I’m going to get Linus to hold this year.

    Lucy: Linus? What’s he ever done? Never scored a point, and you’re going with Linus?

    Charlie Brown: I’ve looked into him. Every time he leld the ball he did everything he was supposed to do, but the other players always failed to make the kick for some reason. It’s wierd, it’s almost as if they wanted to lose the game. But my research shows that Linus is 100% reliable.

    Lucy: Look, Linus can’t win. Besides, he’s a kook. NOBODY else likes him. Your only choice is to trust me to do what you really know I will do: help us win the game.

    Charlie Brown: Every time you hold the ball for me I wind up with a sore back, a bad case of heartburn and an angry disposition. I come running up all ready to do my part and give it my best shot, and you ALWAYS pull the ball away at the last instant, leaving me incredibly disappointed, and in worse shape than I was in before.

    Lucy: Yeah but if you don’t go with me it’ll mean the end of our fun, things will just get worse and worse. Besides, I’m the chosen one. You HAVE to let me do the job.

    Charlie Brown: Chosen? by who? Good Grief! how stupid do you think I am? I know you’ll be a huge disappointment as usual. Sorry, I’m going with Linus or nobody.

    Lucy: But that that’s just forfeiting the game.

    Charlie Brown: That’s just faulty reasoning. Every time in the past we lost the game because you just trashed all my hopes and dreams. You’ve yanked the ball away from me for the last time. Never again. I’m going with Linus, I’ve had enough disappointment.

    Lucy: But Charlie Brown, I’ve always been the holder.

    Charlie Brown : Yeah the holder back.

Ron Paul is a breath of fresh air and will not turn his back on the American people.

    Two points I’d like to make; First, the headline ‘a vote for Romney is a vote for a Police State’, what do we have with Obummer and his idiot organization? Second, since when does the President make Policy? He would need an idiot Congress (which we have at times). It would have been nice to have a Conservative running, but we don’t, and OBummer must GO!

  • SFC RET DENNIS

    Iv heard a lot of negative comments about the LDS faith, women do go to the Temple any one who says different is a liars or don’t know what they are talking about. Of course the church leaders give us the standards don’t every church leader teach what they believe god is telling them. Some of you blast the LDS church for its mistakes in the past and yet you never talk about how the no believers started the war agent the early church, I do not condone what the church did in M.M but dither do I condone what happened to the members at H.M and every were ells the early saints were brutally murdered and kicked off their lands. What we do in the Temple is not secret but secrete, anything ells you can learn on the web site, lds.org or mormmon.org, you want to know what is in side are temples the next time there is a open house at one of our newly built temples go see it before it is dedicated and you can go in side and see everything that is inside the temple. Before you condemn us know your facts, and when you condemn the early saints be sure you condemn the no members who stated it, there were more members killed then non and I do not condone any of it from both sides. People do a lot of horrible things when they are scared.

    i would rather see a mormom sitting in the white house than a muslim. both these organizations have questionable origins and i believe originated by con men, however, i’ve known mormons over the years and found them to be very patriotic americans and their church does take care of it’s own. these religions both have the same goal to convert the world to their kind of thinking, the one big difference, the muslims want your head if you don’t. the mormons will proselytize you to death

  • tncdel

    The potential for abuse by Romney is there, of course. But he’s a lot less of a threat to do that than is Barack Obama. And in many respects, like Romney’s stance on abortion, illegal immigration, business and most other things, Romney is virtually 180 degrees away from Obama.

    I think the best way we Conservatives can try to make lemonade out of the lemon Romney is to stop “establishment GOP” and Lamestream media from picking Romney’s VP choice. WaPo and others keep trying to foist that TRAITOR Mario Rubio [who wants to attract more job-stealing illegals here with amnesty and the Dream Act] or Chris Christie [a RINO fraud who, among other things, appointed a Muslim with ties to Hamas and supports Sharia Law as a judge].

    Mitch Daniels is okay. But the best choice by far for VP would be ALLEN WEST.

    I’m a major blogger on sodahead.com, a blog type website with almost two million
    users. And I’m ranked #4 there on the “All-Time” list. I’ve run over five thousand
    polls there over the years, mostly political polls. And the one I posted pitting Allen
    West versus Barack Obama set the all-time record for that website as far as any
    political match-up type polls. Generating well over three thousand comments within
    the first 48 hours! And West TROUNCED Obama by over a 5-to-1 margin!! See it
    here with your own eyes:
    http://www.sodahead.com/united-states/if-allen-west-is-nominated-by-the-gop-to-run-against-barack-hussein-obama-who-would-you-vote-for/question-1801603/

    If Romney is savvy enough to pick West as his VP, that will mean the difference in
    whether or not Romney wins. For it will not only generate ENTHUSIASM for Romney’s
    ticket, but will also stop Obama from getting a free pass again from 12 million black
    voters. Especially in the “Bible Belt” states where more blacks would identify closer
    with West’s working-class Christian values than they would Obama’s “Muslim-tainted
    elitism.”

    Romney should also do a deal with Ron Paul, to prevent Ron Paul supporters from
    wasting their votes by writing in for Paul, promising Paul the Secretary of the Treasury
    post and power to orchestrate the Romney administration’s policy on government
    spending [a political "plum" I think Paul would find impossible to resist].

  • gopherguy

    The type of rationale offered in the article is exactly what the liberals enjoy. Conservative (and I have been one since Ike ran in the ’60s) factions that blindly attack candidates from their own party because the the platform they support is not EXACTLY like their own. Hogwash. This approach will most certainly help elect the worst president the US has had EVER….. for another 4 years. As far as Mitt’s religion is concerned, who cares, the POTUS has very little lattitude to impose his religion on American’s during his presidency. Kennedy did not try to convert us to his Catholic faith and Jefferson did not try to make us all Deists. The 2012 election in November is a MUST WIN for us in order to save the American way of life that we all cherrish. Rally around Mitt Romney as the only choice—compare your options. It’s like choosing Reagan over Jimmy Carter folks. Not hard to make a choice.

    • Tazio2013

      CORRECTION for gopherguy:

      The absolute worst POTUS was Cheney Bush and, since we survived 8 years of his war-criminal brand of crusading christian neo-conservatism and AmeroFascism, we will survive a second term of BHO which is undoubtably better than 4 years of Willard “Mittens” Romney; truly a tale told by an idiot.

        Tazio2013, you are TOTALLY wrong on who was or is the worst POTUS. BHO, the COOTUS is the worst, ‘GW’ never never bowed down to our enemies like this idiot has done. Furthermore, BHO has run up our debt more than any other POTUS in just 3.5 years. Also, just how many times have we been attacked since BHO stole the Whitehouse through the illegal votes (Chicago-style)?

    • GregS

      Edgar, I agree with you. I’m beginning to think that Sam Rolley is nothing but an Obama shill. He seems to rely quite heavily on trashy liberal sources, such as the Huffington Post.

      As I’ve said before in other posts, it’s well known that the Obama Campaign will be depending on the divide-and-conquer strategy to try to win this election, and Sam Rolley, with his recent articles, is playing right into this.

      Don’t get me wrong. I like Ron Paul, but if he doesn’t get the Republican nonination, there’s no sense in trying to write him in, or in voting for a third party candidate. That will only give Obama another four years, which we just can’t afford.

    Working for the Obama camp are you? Trying to get people not to vote against Obama but not voting for Romney? This article might have had a purpose a couple months ago but it now only serves to help Obama.

    • randydutton

      It should have said “Trying to get people not to vote against Obama by not voting for Romney?” I’m sure you think Ron Paul still has a chance…he doesn’t. And any effort to convince delegates otherwise is a wasted chance to unseat Obama.

      • TML

        This assumes that Ron Paul won’t run as an independent, if he does not get the nomination (which is still logically not impossible regarding delegates).

    Romney is merely a puppet on strings for the Wall Street crowd and he also wants to increase the budget for the pentagon for his war with Iran.Why does he want a war with Iran?He doesn’t know why either it’s just that somebody pulled that string for it and it’s a secret how he will win that war.He should have been the host on “I’ve Got A Secret”.

    The Book of Mittens

    Pundits still haven’t figured out how to talk about Romney’s Mormon religion. Here’s everything you need to know

    The Mormonism of the 19th century bears little resemblance to Mitt Romney’s Mormonism. Mitt Romney’s Mormonism is the impossibly cheery “Donny and Marie” variety, not the armed apocalyptic homesteading cult member variety. Tolstoy — referring to the scrappy/crazy 19th century version — called Mormonism “the American religion,” and he decidedly did not mean that as a compliment. But the modern church still deserves the title. It’s the Coca- Cola religion, with a brand that denotes a sort of upbeat corporate Americanness, considered cheesy by elites but undeniably popular in pockets of the heartland and abroad.

    It is an admirable transformation, frankly, for a religion founded very recently by a man who was likely both a liar and a lunatic, then led to prominence by a megalomaniac. Despite its transparently ridiculous dogma and sordid history of racism and murder and extremely unorthodox marital practices, Mormonism has come to thrive, thanks primarily to its ability to market and rapidly reinvent itself.

    If the doctrine itself is a problem, stick around for a while and wait for it to change. If you think it unlikely, for example, that multiple advanced civilizations, descended from Israelite tribes, thrived and warred for hundreds of years in pre-Columbian upstate New York without leaving any archaeological evidence behind, the church now cheerfully entertains the possibility that the hill where Smith “found” his golden plates is one of two named “Cumorah,” with the other one — the one repeatedly referenced in the Book of Mormon — likely standing somewhere in Central America.

    My Vote and all my family’s will go to President Obama, he has made changes, that are good for America, he has created a health care plan for all people, and not just those, the insurance company picks and choose, I love Obama care, I think he cares about our elderly, and helps the poor. I have seen where Republicans have used lies saying President Obama is a Muslim, and a terrorist, and wants to make all the people Muslim, this was how they got in office in 2010. The truth is most of those creating these lies really are racial bigots, and can not stand a black man is in office, I have seen and heard enough, what’s more shocking is the Christian Church’s have become political club’s. I have attended over 16 different church’s that have pushed their right wing ideology, and am shocked, they are no longer Christian church’s but a club, and should not be allowed to have a tax exemption. The whole Republican party has become a true carnival side show, and has used the likes of preachers to mislead the flock, total corruption.

    Tazio;Great piece, you just verified what everyone was talking about.If you have a problem with Romney’s Doctrine” stick around for awhile and wait for it to change”. That is one of his biggest problems he is such a Flip Flop.

    Three Holy Men and a Bear / FYA

    A Catholic Priest, a Baptist Preacher and a Rabbi all served as Chaplains to the students of Northern Michigan University at Marquette in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

    They would get together two or three times a week for coffee and to talk shop.

    One day, someone made the comment that preaching to people isn’t really all that hard, a real challenge would be to preach to a bear.

    One thing led to another, and they decided to do an experiment. They would all go out into the woods, find a bear, preach to it, and attempt to convert it to their religion.

    Seven days later, they all came together to discuss their experiences.

    Father Flannery, who had his arm in a sling, was on crutches, and had various bandages on his body and limbs, went first. ‘Well,’ he said, ‘I went into the woods to find me a bear. And when I found him, I began to read to him from the Catechism. Well, that bear wanted nothing to do with me and began to slap me around. So I quickly grabbed my holy water, sprinkled him and, Holy Mary Mother of God, he became as gentle as a lamb. The Bishop is coming out next week to give him first communion and confirmation.’

    Reverend Billy Bob spoke next. He was in a wheelchair, had one arm and both legs in casts, and had an IV drip. In his best fire-and-brimstone oratory, he exclaimed, ‘WELL, brothers, you KNOW that we Baptists don’t sprinkle! I went out and I FOUND me a bear. And then I began to read to my bear from God’s HOLY WORD! But that bear wanted nothing to do with me. So I took HOLD of him and we began to wrestle. We wrestled down one hill, UP another and DOWN another until we came to a creek. So I quickly DUNKED him and BAPTIZED his hairy soul. And just like you said, he became as gentle as a lamb. We spent the rest of the day praising Jesus..Hallelujah!

    The Priest and the Reverend both looked down at the Rabbi, who was lying in a hospital bed. He was in a body cast and traction with IVs and monitors running in and out of him. He was in really bad shape.

    The Rabbi looked up and said: “Looking back on it, …. circumcision may not have been the best way to start.”

      BOY YOU DON’T HAVE TO THAT NO MORE YA HERE ME.

  • Renee

    As far as voting goes, shouldn’t we look at the character of the person running and what they stand for? Are they “REALLY” looking out for the American people and their best intrests? Do they care about anyone but themselves? I wouldn’t vote for either one, M.R. or B.O. because their politics are dirty and they don’t care about us, the voters. Our country is nothing to them, the Constitution is “out of date” and I disagree with their platforms. My biggest problem is this…with all the intelligent people we have in this country, are these two knuckleheads the only people we could come up with? My vote is for R. P.

    • GregS

      Even if RP runs as an Independent? I ask this, because, if you are the same Renee, you indicated in a previous post (here) that you wouldn’t vote for a third party candidate. In fact you seem to have completely changed your mind about Romney.

      • Renée

        I’ve never made a comment on voting for a third party candidate. That has to have been someone else. I don’t care for either of these guys and haven’t from the very beginning. My thoughts have always been I’ll vote for who I think will represent the people the best regardless of their party. I’m saddened to see where our country is headed. It has detiorated quite a bit in my lifetime and all we can do is hope and pray that things change and not the kind of change we have been getting.
        I’ll change my name a little so hopefully there won’t be a mistake later. I can see how that could be an issue. Thanks for pointing it out.

  • Lucinda

    I prefer a Mitt Romney American to a Muslim Brotherhood sympathizer Obama. Mitt may be a Mormon but he isn’t a moron.

  • chuckb

    mitt romney is not my choice and i dislike his politics, that said, barrys politics are even worse. this man is a disgrace to the constitution and the country as a whole. i believe there are some on here that advocate the election of ron paul, who are really trying to draw the vote away from romney to help barry soetoro.
    ron paul is not going to be nominated for president or vice pres.you have two choices,
    romney or barry, to vote for anyone else is a vote for the muslim in the white house.
    we have that choice, thanks to the grand ol party.

    • Susie Liberty

      Well, chuckb – the Legions of Voters who’ve moved to Ron Paul ‘might’ surprise you! His message of Liberty DOES bring us all together. Attend a Rally – and see the diversity in age, ethnicity, and socioeconomic level… AND previous Party Allegiance…meaning he attracts Democrats!

      And don’t be slinging those kinds of arrows at people who support the Candidate who is Not for Sale! And believes in Our Constitution! I’d have to say, if YOU vote otherwise, YOU are contributing to the Fall of Our Republic.

      • chuckb

        susie, if i thought ron paul had a chance i would consider him. you are day dreaming if you think he’s in the race, not! to voter for anyone beside romney, you are voting for the fall of our republic. i curse the gop for putting up this kind of candidate, however, i will do what i can to remove the muslim, another four yerars, this guy will ne appointing the muslim brotherhood as the supreme court.

  • Lucinda

    I’ve supported Paul since 2004 but if he can’t win it has to be Romney over Obama. We must consider national security and at least some patriotic integrity. I know it’s too late to save the America I long for, but since we’re past the point of no return I’m for the guy who is pro America.

  • FWO21

    So, what’s a person to do? Whom do we vote for? I tried in 2008 to vote for a non-republican or a non-democrat and look what that got me. I am not confortable in doing that again because we cannot afford another 4 years of Obama; the Lord only knows what he will do to us the next 4 years as he can not do another 4 so, anything goes will be his motto, I’m sure.

    I’m with you Lucinda; we need someone in the WH who actually cares about America.

  • Lucinda

    It was Obama who, according to senator Levin and despite objections, insisted that US citizens be included for indefinite detention without trial.

    Obama bypassed congress to send $192,000,000 to Hamas/Muslim brotherhood. White House spokesman Tommy Vietor explained that the money was to be used for “ensuring the continued viability of the moderate PA government” under the leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Hamas terrorist group.

    Obama greatly assisted friend and dictator Raila Odinga with his campaign and later took time to help him write the Kenyan constitution to include Sharia law for the 12% of Muslims in Kenya.

    Obama intervened in Libya and dropped bombs without congressional approval which enabled the Muslim Brotherhood to achieve more power.

    I don’t like leaving our troops stranded in Afghanistan where infiltrators seem to accomplish frequent murders and Navy Seals are mysteriously shot down..

    Romney isn’t perfect but even as a globalist he is on OUR side. The Obama campaign and corporate/government media would like nothing more than to divert potential Romney voters to Ron Paul.

    • Susie Liberty

      “Romney isn’t perfect but even as a globalist he is on OUR side.” Lucinda, PLEASE do some reading/research about the Globalist Movement! I’m so shocked at your statement that II think I cannot even comment further

  • David

    Hey Bob, Which side of the fence are you on? I resent very much your article exposing Romney’s police state attitude. Right now, all that is important is to get rid of Obama. You are not helping that cause. You could have reported on Romney right after he takes the White House. Why Now? We probably just lost 10,000 votes for Romney. Thanks a lot!

    • Susie Liberty

      Tongue in cheek, right? Because there IS a Candidate who has pledged to rid us of the prez AND Romney who want all of us living in a Police State – down on our knees.

      And that good man has MY VOTE!

      Ron Paul 2012

    • http://boblivingstonpl.wordpress.com Bob Livingston

      Dear David,

      You write: “Which side of the fence are you on?” The side of liberty and the Constitution.

      You write: “I resent very much your article exposing Romney’s police state attitude.” Tough.

      You write: “Right now, all that is important is to get rid of Obama. You are not helping that cause.” I agree that it is important to rid our government of all Marxists, socialists and statists, regardless of party. That cause I believe I am helping.

      You write: “You could have reported on Romney right after he takes the White House. Why Now?” What good would it do after the fact? By exposing him now I hope to encourage people to support the only true conservative and statesman in the race.

      You write: “We probably just lost 10,000 votes for Romney. Thanks a lot!” I hope I have had at least half the influence you have attributed to me.

      Best wishes,
      Bob

      • lizitiz

        Amen.

  • Lucinda

    Susie Liberty, I understand your dismay at my grudging acceptance of globalists. I’ve followed their horrific movement for many years and fought them every step of the way.
    We’ve been indoctrinated by academia and the globalist media dictates everything we see and hear. They’ve taken our money and our freedom with help from smooth talking do nothing politicians whose unconstitutional actions are largely ignored. Yes, Ron Paul is the Paul Revere and our only hope, but do you really believe there is hope for Ron Paul?
    My point was simply that if the choice comes down to a globalist who hates the American way versus a globalist who supports and loves America, I’ll take the latter. That would be Romney.

    • Susie Liberty

      Lucinda – I absolutely do not believe there is a true “Globalist” on the face of this earth “who supports and loves America.” By KNOWN definition, those terms are mutually exclusive!

      And absolutely, I believe that Ron Paul has a good chance – and most certainly, people cannot Believe what you’ve stated about him – and then VOTE for someone else! The POLLS have actually shown that Ron Paul BEATS the prez, whereas Romney does NOT! (And that is because Ron Paul brings a great coalition of Voters together!)

  • Lucinda

    While I agree that Ron Paul brings together a great coalition…is it enough? If there were a chance Paul could beat Obama, of course I’d vote for him. If Paul appears to have no chance of beating Obama, it has to be Romney because a vote for Paul at that point would be a vote for Obama.

    • Susie Liberty

      Well, just look to Corporate Media, Lucinda, and they’ll tell you…

      I feel compelled to respond that a vote for Romney, instead of Paul, will eventually be a vote for Obama, in my opinion.

  • Lucinda

    I guess that’s what the Obama campaign is hoping for.

    It seems to me we are left with 2 choices Either we go with the Mormon or the Marxist, Lennenist Muslim that we have right now. I think I’ll go with the Mormon.

    • Susie Liberty

      Well, Cliff – since the GOP Nominee has NOT yet been selected – despite what Corporate Media ‘tries’ to drill into our heads, DO remember that, at this point in time, there is a THIRD CANDIDATE involved – and doing very well against Romney – AND OBAMA. I plan to cast my vote for him because he’s a Constitutional Conservative…
      AND he’s Not for Sale!

  • lizitiz

    A vote for Dr. Paul is NOT a vote for Obama. Ron Paul will (and has) pull away as many former Obama supporters as Republican voters. He has a diverse base of support, because liberty is a unifying message. I’m voting for peace and freedom–I’m voting Ron Paul!

      I DON’T CARE WHAT YOU SUCK ASS REPO SAY RUN PAUL IS THE MAN AND I WILL
      VOTE FOR HIM OR WRITE HIM IN AND IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT BLOW ME M/F

      • John Wilch (TSgt, USAF Ret.)

        Will, Sir, you just vote for four more years of Obummer and his socialist programs and his lies by voting for Paul. Oh, I like some of his domestic theories but when it comes to his foreign policies they scare me. Take for instance, pulling all our troops home that one is one of the dumbest things I can think of; we need those bases and those that are stationed there to gather intellegence (WE NEED TO KNOW WHAT OUR ENEMIES (and some so-called allies) ARE DOING!); also they are our first line of defense against an attack or can be ready to hit back in a matter of a few days.

        So, Sir, if we pull our troops back we will be deaf and dumb about what those that want to kill us. I am voting for Mitt.

  • Lucinda

    Ron Paul stopped campaigning today. So do Paul supporters want more racist, Marxist Obama policies or do they want to try Romney? Who would Paul prefer?
