Mitt Romney’s introductory campaign video says that President Trump’s America/Security-first immigration policy rhetoric is exclusionary. Apparently, Mitt Romney thinks that protecting Americans and our interests are somehow a negative thing. Mitt’s own campaign rhetoric more closely resembles that of the Democrats who always put illegals and immigrants before Americans in order to curry favor and buy votes. Is Mitt Romney afraid that he can’t win without the votes and support of illegals?
Here are my views.
We know what Mitt Romney thinks about “borders.” On Jan 2nd the Cape-Cod Carpetbagger suddenly become a Utahn after speding most of his 71 years elsewhere.
Here are my views.
On February 22nd, 2018, KSL (local NBC news affiliate in Salt Lake City) asked Mitt Romney about his position on gun control—especially with respect to the young voices calling for more restrictions and laws on law-abiding citizens in the wake of the Parkland shooting. He responded, “We’re gonna have to deal with it, we’re gonna to have to take action.”
Mitt Romney’s first instinctual response to children was to offer big-government solutions that could infringe the 2nd Amendment rights of Americans.
Here’s my response.
Since Senators are instrumentally involved in foreign treaties and therefore foreign policy, it is important that they have the right constitutional perspective and decision-making paradigm. This is a huge strike against Mitt Romney as he’s failed several times recently to demonstrate the ability to make the right suppositions and choices and stand up for Americans. Here’s a short summary of some of those instances:
Mitt Romney’s foreign policy sensibilities are a disaster. Now, here are mine.
Here are my thoughts:
Keep My Voice (Caucus/Convention) vs Count My Vote (Collect signatures, get on primary ballot)
Those who opposed SB54: Count My Vote warned that outside interests could come to Utah and use star power and money to “buy” an election. Just 4 years after its passage we already see that prediction coming to fruition. Only 2 months ago Mitt changed his residence on Twitter from Massachusetts to Holladay, UT, and announced his intent to run for the US Senate. Now he’s gathering signatures to guarantee he’ll be on the GOP primary ballot instead of risking the caucus/convention system which ensures extreme vetting of candidates. Since many Utah GOP conservatives are not fans of Mitt Romney, he’s using his name recognition from previous presidential runs and the Olympics (over a decade-and-a-half ago) to simply bypass the scrutiny of the convention system. For those who want to reduce money in politics or who want to maintain local influence and accountability, this is a disastrous development.
Here’s my position:
