“I Love Big Bird”

The economy is in terrible condition but there is more to the presidency than the economy.

When Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney declared early on in the first presidential debate “I love Big Bird,” you knew that his next words were not going to be something you want to hear.  Basically Mr. Romney wants to dismantle the social safety net that helps the poor, the unemployed, and the retired.  You see, he simply believes everyone is on his own and the government should not provide any social services.  The Republican Party has never favored any of the programs that help the poorest among us.  It’s a philosophy told well by Charles Dickens in his tale, A Christmas Carol.

 Ayn Rand, the author and philosopher who believed that the unfortunate are victims of their own stupidity and laziness, became an idol of many in the Republican Party.  Both Paul Ryan and Congress Woman Michele Bachmann have voiced their admiration for Rand.  It has been retold numerous times that Alan Greenspan was a disciple of Rand and met with her in her home.  If only she hadn’t been an atheist.

The reality is that Mr. Romney has changed his views on every major issue over the past 20 years.  He has changed his opinion multiple times.  He favored and opposed abortion rights for women multiple times.  The “severe conservative” opposed all abortions while running in the primaries but now he says he knows of no legislation he would support that would change abortion law.  The tough talking  Romney wanted to send help rebels in Syria but now says he supports the Obama approach.  Illegal aliens?  He wanted them to all “self deport” but now says that he will support the Obama program giving children brought here illegally to have the right to obtain a job.  The list goes on and on.

In the second debate Romney was asked his view on equal pay for women.  His answer was his efforts to find more women to staff his administration in Massachusetts.  Did he tell us if he supports equal pay? No!

If you want a conservative nation that denies rights to women, the poor, minorities, and the elderly vote for Mitt Romney.
