What About Mitt Romney?

April 30, 2012 by  

Dear Mr. Livingston:

At a crucial point in the presidential campaign, I find it appalling that you will distribute a newsletter urging the financial support of a Congressional candidate from Arizona, which follows a newsletter some months ago, encouraging support for Rick Santorum in his presidential campaign. Other organizations have sent out similar newsletters urging support for Newt Gingrich.

However, not once has Personal Liberty Alerts or any other religious and/or non-profit organization sent out a newsletter on behalf of Mitt Romney who has been the frontrunner of Republican Party for many months; and after winning five large primary elections last night it is obvious that he will be the nominee.

If you truly believe it is “Time to Shock Obama Campaign Back to Reality,” shouldn’t you FIRST utilize your efforts to promote Mitt Romney in his campaign to win over Obama in the upcoming presidential campaign?  

While Congressional positions are also important to our Party, it is time for every Republican to urge people to support Mitt Romney in his uphill battle to challenge and unseat Barack Obama as President of the U. S., who reportedly said, “They will destroy Mitt Romney.”

As clarification, I am not an employee or a volunteer for the Mitt Romney campaign.  However, as a concerned citizen for the critical condition of our beloved country, I believe Mitt Romney is the best candidate with the leadership ability to turn our country around.  It is indeed puzzling as to why your organization and others are not utilizing your efforts to influence and encourage people on your mailing list to support and vote for Mr. Romney as President of the U. S., which is the most important election of most of our life time?

Concerned for my country,

Constance

Dear Constance,

The “newsletter” you are referring to is a paid advertisement. Candidates and corporations pay us to run their advertisements and donation solicitations to our email list. Our running those ads does not necessarily imply endorsement of a candidate any more than political advertisements running in newspapers or on television stations imply an endorsement. In the past we ran ads for Gingrich, Bachmann, Cain and others. At no time have we endorsed Santorum, Gingrich, Bachmann or Cain.

You write: “However, not once has Personal Liberty Alerts or any other religious and/or non-profit organization sent out a newsletter on behalf of Mitt Romney who has been the frontrunner of Republican Party for many months; and after winning five large primary elections last night it is obvious that he will be the nominee.” First, we are not a religious or a non-profit organization. We are a for-profit private business, we receive no funding from government or foundations, and we must make a profit to survive. I’m sure you understand that concept. As for “other religious and/or non-profit organization(s),” I do not control what they do.

Second, the Mitt Romney campaign has been offered the opportunity to run a paid advertisement to our email list just as the other candidates were. Apparently, Romney’s campaign does not believe it would be a good investment. As he has tens of millions of dollars in his campaign chest from the big banksters, I can understand why.

You write: “If you truly believe it is ‘Time to Shock Obama Campaign Back to Reality,’ shouldn’t you FIRST utilize your efforts to promote Mitt Romney in his campaign to win over Obama in the upcoming presidential campaign?” It is not our mission to promote Mitt Romney or any other candidate, especially one who campaigns on issues we disagree with. We have long endorsed Ron Paul and will continue to do so as long as he’s in the race since we align with his views on the economy, the police state, the military state and most other issues.

You write: “As clarification, I am not an employee or a volunteer for the Mitt Romney campaign. However, as a concerned citizen for the critical condition of our beloved country, I believe Mitt Romney is the best candidate with the leadership ability to turn our country around.” You are certainly entitled to your opinion, and your decision on whom you should support is certainly yours to make. I just don’t happen to agree with your assessment.

You write: “It is indeed puzzling as to why your organization and others are not utilizing your efforts to influence and encourage people on your mailing list to support and vote for Mr. Romney as President of the U. S., which is the most important election of most of our life time?” It is Mr. Romney’s job to earn our support. He has yet to do so. If he were to change his position on important issues, we might get behind his election. As it stands, I don’t see that happening. However, he is free to purchase advertising space on our site or for a chance to advertise to our email list if he desires.

Best wishes,

Bob
