It is no secret that most people in the Tea Party movement do not like Mitt Romney. The flip-flopping ex Massachusetts governor is the poster child for pandering politicians who will say anything to get elected.
Why is Romney unfit to be President? Is it because he is a RINO? Is it something else?
In 2005, the liberal Romney enacted strict new clean air regulations, which were going to take effect on January 1, 2006. This was a Massachusetts version of Cap and Trade. The Romney administration even issued a press release to that effect.
One of the people Mitt Romney consulted while making his decisions on regulations was a guy named John Holdren. Holdren was a professor at Harvard, which is everyone’s first clue he is a liberal nut.
Holdren has written a number of books expressing his whacky ideas. First he believes in de-developing the United States. That is right. He wants to undevelop the United States. He believes in taking American resources, diverting them to third world countries while creating a “low-consumption” economy in America. That is a nice way of saying he wants to destroy the American standard of living and make us as poor as those third world countries.
But wait, this only gets better.
He has called for the mass sterilization of Americans. That’s right; Americans would be sterilized whether they wanted to or not. He proposed adding a “sterilant” to the drinking water or food of the population. Who was the last guy who called for mass sterilization? I believe it was Hitler.
Holdren believes our American constitution allows for compulsory population laws, including forced abortions for those who are discovered violating the law.
Holdren also wants American sovereignty surrendered to a global authority that would have the power to enforce these idiotic laws. Because that United Nations thing where third world dictators rule is working out so well, isn’t it?
None of these ideas of Holdren’s came out in the last five minutes. Holdren’s views are well known and a cursory search of his background comes up with this and much more.
Knowing all of this, can someone please explain why Mitt Romney thought this guy was a good guy to be one of his environmental advisors? Come to think of it, can anyone please explain why Romney would think this guy was qualified to advise on anything?
Since Holdren is a leftist lunatic who hates America, he fit right in with the Obama regime, and Obama made Holdren his science czar.
What kind of Republican thinks that consulting with someone who advocates forced abortion, forced sterilization and the forced “De-development” of America is a good idea?
Seven out of the nine major Republican candidates would be appalled by the idea of having an advisor with these obscene, Obama like beliefs. Romney has already made his views known, as I cannot find any record of Romney denouncing Holdren. Jon Huntsman is too busy making 5 star hotel reservations to express an opinion.
The fact that Mitt Romney would even consult with someone like this disqualifies him to be a Republican. To call Holdren’s beliefs repugnant is an understatement. They stand against liberty, freedom and everything that Republicans stand for.
Mitt Romney’s judgment and core beliefs are absolutely lacking. He is not fit to be a Republican nominee. He is not even fit to be a Republican. He should leave the race immediately, but we know he won’t.
We the People need to let Mitt hear our voices.
Lois, WE don't judge anyone 'immoral'. The Bible (our Bible) tells us that we can judge a tree by the fruit it bears. It also tells us that "cursed be the man that lies with another man" it is an abomination in Gods sight. I can not , nor will I, condon any of their behavior. The Bible tells me I can judge them as Cursed in the sight of God. I do not have the right to beat them up, but I do have the right to say they are WRONG and IMMORAL. And I also have the right, and I will excerise it, to not associate with them, nor will I speak at any of their meetings. If they ask why I will simply tell them that in my belief and Faith they are against God and what I stand for. And the Bible also tells me that silence is consent and I definetly DO NOT CONSENT to that kind of behavior. And them saying they are Christians, and made that way by God, makes them liars to boot. God did not make them that way. They are screwed up in the head and made the choice they made on their own. God did not make them Queer. (and by queer, the Dictionary tells me that means they are 'Odd, not normal", I am not calling them names, just using a legal Webster Dictionary term to describe their actions, ODD, NOT NORMAL)
I am surprised to see such an inflammatory.article on this usually more thoughtful blog. What's the point of slamming anyone or, for that matter Harvard, with a sledgehammer? I don’t see this serving well the credibility of those who wish to preserve our exceptional American Republic.
It is one thing to reasonably question Romney's judgment in accepting advice from Holdren in 2005. Did Romney know before Holdren's testimony to the Senate in 2008 that Holdren disclaimed ever espousing mandatory human sterilization? Does anyone see any evidence that Holdren has changed anything other than his tendency towards candor? Do Romney’s actions show him to govern either the private or public sector according to anything other his own immediate best interests?
What alarms me is how eagerly many hop from one sound bite to another to condemn rather than investigate further the full reference of the remarks. All this leads me to stubbornly resist the theory that you have to be a full fledged media rockstar to get elected to the presidency next time around. Woe be unto us all if we haven’t learned, by now, that actions speak far more truthfully than words.
I see my Poster was removed on Mormonism but that's OK...... So Much for Free Speech in America!
Either way, Mit Gets no Vote from me on the basis of what he Believes and as a Christian as I stated last night with Scripture to make my point....but that was deleted...MMMMMMmmmm Let's see how He does next year.
BUT I WILL VOTE THIRD PARTY IF MIT IS THE GOP PICK. Simple as that! Romney belongs to a Religious Cult not is not an attack on Religion, that is a Solid Concrete FACT and anyone who wants to debate me on that.... I am fully able theologically qualified and able.
And inspite of my deleted post............................ CHRISTIANS ARE A MAJOR VOTING BLOCK IN AMERICA rather you or the media want to reject and delete that idea.
Don't know about a deleted poster, Never saw it, Baba Doc!
But I will note that if contained racial or anti-religious sect elements, I'm all for it's deletion!
We have many embedded MSM reporters and leftist elements that love to hold us up as being bigots. Self censorship can be a good idea. Just speculating...never saw this poster....
As for voting turd party, that as well is your right! Better would you to make your views known to the "powers that be" in your area to support a Conservative candidate! Then choose.
If you can't get behind either viable candidate, don't waste your time voting! Spend the time on a letter to the editor or something.
Just my humble opinion, sir.
Hey Heidi - If we just let these candidates talk, we will know their values/principles! Don't forget the
presidential debate tomorrow (Tues. Eve.) on CNN. At least we will all be able to view this one!
Herman is the Man! He is one sharp dresser! Just read that he turned a Va. Costco into a huge
rally for him. People loved him, whites, blacks, hispanics, all found him to be fantastic! He is
definitely a people to people person. And he is the SAME - day after day. Truth is a great sword!
Go Herman, Go Patriots
