How Mitt Romney Won My Vote

Nice article Mike. And good point about coming to grips with the debt. Some of Romneys ideas will probably hurt me. But I think he's on the right track....that it's time to knuckle down. This doesn't make Romney a monster. Like someone already said, it makes him an adult.

I am no idiot. As a lifelong Republican, I am completely aware of welfare abuse. But it seems to me that the Republican argument is about thirty years late. We are in the midst of the worst economic downturn in our nations history. And the bulk of government assistance is reflected in that fact, not in those who've leeched off taxpayers for decades.

If it's that rosey, then Limbaugh, Hannity, OReilley, Boortz, Romney, Rove, Ryan and all the others are wrong about the economy. And Obamas stimulus has been a success. Therefore, the 8 million Americans who lost their livlihoods in the economic downturn had rather live on the uncertain dole than be stable and free. Clearly this is not true.

Consequently, cutting off their benefits in the attempt to force them back to work ignores the reality that there is no work to which to return. What's the sense in kicking the fort dwellers from the fort in the midst of a blizzard by simply imagining the season to be spring? Wouldn't it make sense to wait till spring or to fix the economy and make the jobs available before telling them they have to leave the fort and find work?

There seems to be a disconnect between Mr. Mitchell as well as many other conservatives principles and economic reality. Consequently, they view those unemployed who are on some form of government assistance as life long lay-abouts. In fact, the bulk of the unemployed who are on some form of assistance are life long workers and taxpayers. They've spent their lives working, paying taxes, taking their kids to little league and boy scouts, painting their homes, mowing their yards and so on, just like everyone else. But when the economic tsunami came along, it cared not whether you are liberal, conservative, atheist or christian. If you were in its way, it swept away your lifes work, your job, home, contacts, possessions...everything.
