Why Mitt Romney is Bad if We Want to Return to Reagan’s Ideals

Most of the Republicans on the ticket keep trying to summon the ghost of Ronald Reagan. This is not surprising since he was voted the greatest American that ever lived. Reading through Reagan’s autobiography I was surprised to see a Romney who was trying to get the republican nomination in 1968. George Romney (Mitt’s father) had run and lost the nomination to Richard Nixon.

In full disclosure – though not the basis of this post – I’m a Ron Paul Supporter – that being said let’s move on because that’s not why I’m writing this piece.

Reagan was heavily distrustful of career politicians. He ran out of urging of the people nothing more. When he was first on the republican ticket as a favorite son, then later when he tried to get the nomination he did so at others urging. He realized it was the voice of the people who wanted him. He believed that it was the people who chose a man whether they wanted the position or not.

The Romney family in comparison is a long line of career politicians
. While we hold families like the Kennedy’s in high esteem because they are essentially royalty, the American people need to learn that we can not trust elected official who were never in the trenches with the common man. The silver spoon electorates that have a destiny in public office at birth need to be stopped. We need more common men that have successfully lived the American dream before we they can fully understand the needs of the people they govern.

Mitt Romney may not be a bad guy. He may not have bad ideals – but essentially we are opening the door to his children and grandchildren to enter public office. The American people once stood up and faced against a monarchy, we can not allow these pseudo monarchies full of lords and barons that essentially own their feudal lands in which they live .

I can say that if Mitt Romney wins the nomination I don’t care if it’s Hillary or Obama that wins the democrat nomination – I will vote democrat. Living in Ohio I can say my vote counts for something since we are not a hard blue or red state – we are pinkish though.

We need to follow the ideals of our forefathers and reject these monarchies as they arise. These people are taught early on to say things we want to hear and seem to be good even if they are not. They have learned well from the teachings of Machiavelli. Anyone coming from a long lined political family should be immediately treated with more scrutiny than the other candidates.

Reagan coerced and persuaded people into office that didn’t want to be there. He was always extremely suspect of people that did. We especially don’t need another president that is trying to finish everything their father failed to do.

  1. your argument is silly. So you’d rather vote for Hillary and continue the Clinton monarchy, as well as opening up the door to her daughter for public office, than vote acourding to your ideals? I also wonder how so many Ron Paul supporters are left leaning, since he is by definition THE MOST right leaning of the republicans. And ps. Mitt’s kids seem to have it together better than ANY other candidet.

  3. As someone that is completely disenfranchised with the system – and the republican party not standing true to it’s original ideals – yes I would rather vote for whatever democrat is available.

    Not like it truly matters since my main concern with voting for any president is the electoral college – since I personally want the electoral college removed like many Americans – or have the electoral votes legally required to split as per the vote percentages the state actually receives – according to Ron Paul that makes me anti american – but I forgive the guy.

  5. Also – why would you consider I’m left leaning – the only things I’m left leaning on is abortion since i believe in pro-choice and more stringent gun control – at least make all gun owners become members of well regulated militias as per the letter of the law.

    I believe in small limited government

    I believe in freedom of speech and expression and privacy – things the PATRIOT act severely limits.

    If it wasn’t for Bush and the actions he did in office I might not have paid attention this time around and just supported the republican candidate -the new canidates Mitt included want to keep mostly the status quo.

    But I didn’t write the piece per say to support Ron Paul – but more to promote what I find wrong with these Monarchy families.
