Promise to treat President Romney like a Democrat.
On October 19, Rasmussen Reports stated,
Among those who Somewhat Disapprove of Obama’s performance, Romney gets just 68% of the vote. Kerry got 80% support from those who Somewhat Disapproved of Bush. This may suggest that some who are disappointed by Obama’s performance remain unconvinced that the Republican challenger would do any better.
I am one of those who knows that Obama has been a terrible President, but I am still not persuaded to vote for Romney.
Romney showed in the debates–see my recent posts–that he, like Obama, is essentially a fascist: Romney wants to harness the productive capacity of capitalism to support the goals of socialism.
Romney thinks the purpose of government is to provide health care, education, and other goods “to people who are less fortunate and can’t care for themselves.” Romney differs from Obama in that Romney wants to give businesses a little more leeway—though not much—in running their businesses; but Romney’s stated ultimate goal for these businesses is the same as Obama’s: the production of goods that the government will decide how to distribute.
Recall this significant passage by another fascist:
Great are the tasks of the National Government in the Sphere of Economic Life. Here all action must be governed by one law: the people does not live for business and business does not exist for capital, but capital serves business and business serves the people. —Adolf Hitler on March 23, 1933 (his 52nd day as Chancellor of Germany).
[Hitler, Adolf (1941) The New Germany Desires Work And Peace. Speeches By Reich Chancellor Adolf Hitler The Leader Of The New Germany. With An Introduction By Dr. Joseph Goebbels. (Berlin: Liebheit & Thieson), p. 20.]
To be sure, Obama’s policies are more fascist than Romney’s. More importantly, Obama has demonstrated a willingness to circumvent Congress and perhaps the law—via regulatory directives, such as the EPA’s regulations against carbon emissions, and by refusing to cooperate with Congressional and other federal investigations as in the cases of ‘Fast and Furious’, voter intimidation, and now Benghazi. Moreover, Obama’s foreign policy consists of unilateral disarmament and egalitarianism.
On the other hand, Republicans in Congress, who appropriately scream bloody murder when Democratic Presidents propose fascist policies such as Obamacare, have demonstrated a willingness to let Republican Presidents—such as George W. Bush, with his Sarbanes-Oxley regulation of business, and ‘free’ prescription drugs for the elderly—get away with fascism at home and weakness abroad. Even worse, the failures of Republican Presidents then get blamed falsely on capitalism.
Many Republican and independent voters know these facts, and they therefore resist voting for Romney.
So here is how Republicans in Congress can save the day. Call a spade a spade. Acknowledge publicly that Romney is essentially a Democrat in his policies. Promise to treat him as such when he takes office. Promise to resist him when he tries to spend more on the welfare state, control business more, and appease our enemies abroad.
And then keep your promise. Doing so will not only get Romney elected, but will save the country—if it’s not already too late.
