Unfortunately, Mr. Chapman sees a world where the bad guys are only minor players that can't harm the U.S. or our "protected allies"! Mr. Chapman lives in a dream world! I realize that he is probably a Libertarian, I share some Libertarian ideals too, especially about not looking for wars to start around the globe. However, Mr. Chapman's view of our potential adversaries, and their strengths, weaknesses, and abilities and to harm us or our friends and allies is naive and dangerous. Mr. Romney is exactly right; we DO live in a dangerous world where mistakes can be fatal, and unforgiving. Mr. Romney realizes that many Countries don't like or admire our freedoms, and seek to diminish U.S. influence around the world.

No, they don't like someone who flaunts their wealth such as shipping over a very expensive highly trained animal for dressage overseas. It stinks of not caring for those who don't choose to live such a snobby elite lifesyle that tries to emulate royalty. That is disliked even here. Rodeos are more American.

Please. That is his own money and none of your business. When I hear people like you carping about the Romney's wealth, I feel the need to remind you that the Obama's are also wealthy and flaunt their wealth with the best of them. The Huffington Post (no conservative publication) reports Michelle Obama wore 540.00 sneakers to a Food Bank. How is that for flaunting? Absolutely poor taste, but par for the course for the elitist Obamas.

The United States is the most secure nation in the history of the world. We have a military with no peer, a nuclear arsenal capable of incinerating any enemy, vast oceans that separate us from rivals and many countries that want to be our allies. But some Americans insist on feeling relentless dangers that demand an ever-ready trigger finger.

We once had to fight the Germans and Japanese in a life-and-death struggle between good and evil. We once had to resist Soviet communism in the Cold War. Today we face nothing remotely comparable.

That's a great blessing, but in...
