Romney endorsed?

I will not be continuing my Creationism posts today. I do plan to return to them soon.

Then, I plan to answer the response about Iraq. I am sorry for the change in plans. Plans, in reality, often are altered for one reason or another. “The best laid plans … often go astray.” Thank you for your understanding and patience.

How many unborn toddlers were murdered today because of the humanistic, paganish, barbaric decisions of the United States Supreme Court?

Stop the
Murder of

“Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn’t do it, sins.” James 4: 17 (NIV)

On my first endorsement post, I rejected all Democratic candidates for the Presidency and Republican Rudy Giuliani because they all support the murder of unborn babies. I then rejected John McCain as a possible Republican candidate for endorsement in the primary. Tonight I discuss Mitt Romney.

First though, being President of the United States is unlike any other elected governmental position in the nation. Counting George W. Bush, only 42 people have held the office in our history. Obviously, none of the present candidates have ever held the position. Being governor of any State is not even close to being the President of the United States. Consequently, no one knows with certainty how any of the candidates will actually perform in the office or whether or not they will have a successful (How does one define successful?) administration. Some Presidents grow substantially while in office; some falter. We will NOT know the result until after the fact and even then there will be disagreement (sometimes—often—violate disagreement) over whether the administration was a success or not. That’s politics in the United States.

On my last post, I stated that John McCain is THE political chameleon of the Republican candidates. However, from what I have read and observed, Mitt Romney is not far behind.

For President of the United States, I want a candidate who believes and supports the policy and the principles he advocates. I do not want a President who bases his latest decisions on the most current public opinion polls or changes his positions based upon the office he is running for. That is not leadership!!! That demonstrates an abysmal lack of leadership. I want a leader who will lead the nation; not a follower who follows the latest whims as determined by some public opinion poll which are often wrong (or at least misleading depending upon how the questions are worded and a whole host of other variables) and which almost never measure the intensity of the opinions. I want a leader who has established his deep convictions and principles and sticks with those established convictions and principles.

Mitt Romney was elected governor of Massachusetts the most libertine State in the nation which is represented in the Senate by Edward Kennedy and John Kerry. Mitt Romney did not get elected governor of Massachusetts by declaring that he was opposed to the murder of unborn babies. Mitt Romney, at that time, declared that he SUPPORTED the murder of unborn babies. Now he claims a conversion. I hope and pray that is true. However, HOW DO WE KNOW IT IS A TRUE CONVERTION? Words are easy to say especially when it may help you receive your party’s nomination for the Presidency. Where is the history of his supporting life? Other candidates have that history; Mitt Romney DOES NOT!!!

I would have a very difficult time supporting any candidate who had at one time actually believed that it was acceptable to murder unborn babies. The same is true for a candidate who changes his convictions because it is necessary to do so to achieve another purpose. I want a leader who believes what he claims to believe and is willing to lose an election RATHER THAN change to appease the political gods.

Mitt Romney is also supposed to be a dedicated Mormon. Leaders of the Mormon religion have done the same thing. The leadership preached that polygamy was the will of GOD. To be accepted into the union of States, they changed their teaching declaring that polygamy was not the will of GOD after all. It seemed that GOD had changed HIS mind if it meant Utah would be allowed into the United States. The Mormons also preached that Negroes (Now referred to as African Americans in the United States.) were inferior to Caucasians. They changed their mind when it became politically expedient to do so.

Is Mitt Romney changing because it’s a necessity in order to receive the nomination or because of a real change of conviction? I don’t know and I’m not willing to support such a candidate in the primaries without knowing. Can he be true to his word or is he just another political chameleon? He has changed in the past. What is to prevent a re-conversion in the future?

Then, of course, there is the matter of his religious belief. This is a quote attributed to Mormon founder Joseph Smith who lived from 1805-1844. (The only founder of the CHURCH established by GOD is HIS SON—JESUS, the CHRIST.) “I told the brethren that the Book of Mormon was the most correct of any book on earth, and the keystone of our religion, and a man would get nearer to God by abiding by its precepts, than by any other book.” (Microsoft ® Encarta ® 2007 [DVD]. Redmond, Wa: Microsoft, Corporation, 2006.) This to me established that Mormons believe the Book of Mormon is more important than the Bible—the WORD of GOD!!! It is not and can not be true!!! And yet, when it was necessary, they changed those teachings to achieve other ends!

For the primary election, I want to support the candidate that comes closest to my convictions and beliefs and who has a positive history supporting those positions. Mitt Romney IS NOT that person. If my candidate does not win the Republican nomination, then it will be time to reevaluate the situation and determine if the nominee qualifies to win my vote for the general election. I am not going to surrender my convictions at any time. I will certainly not compromise them in the primary with the “hope” of selecting an “electable candidate.”

I will not support Mitt Romney in the primary election. Should he win the nomination, I am not certain I would vote for him for the Presidency. However, given the Democratic candidates, I probably will unless an attractive third alternative is available. As has been pointed out, Bill Clinton probably won the Presidency twice because of the third party presence of Ross Perot.

However, it may be time to begin a third party. The Republican Party began that way over the issue of slavery. It is not yet time to consider such a possibility. The primaries have not yet begun.

For the primary: Mitt Romney is NOT endorsed!!!
