He recently said that if he were president, the first thing he would do is repeal Obamacare. Sounds good, but then I heard him say this regarding the universal health care he started in Massachusetts:
At that point, I was once again off the Mitt band-wagon, but then he went on to talk about how it should be up to the states on how to manage universal health care. Arg. I'm a strong proponent of states' rights and a strong opponent of universal health care. With what Mitt just said, one foot is on the Mitt band-wagon, and the other off.
Then there is the whole mormon question. Not the one that most of you think of though. I know the mormon faith rather well and really don't care if someone running for office is a mormon. But the mormon question I refer to is how can he be true to his mormon faith and continue to support certain policies? Abortion for example. The Church of Jesus Christ of Letter-Day Saints, otherwise known as the mormon church, is a strong opponent of abortion, except in the instance of rape, incest, or a serious health risk to the mother. Romney says he feels the same way, but has also said that he has no plans to change Roe Vs. Wade. Romney deals with this contradictory stance by saying he does not want to force his beliefs onto other people. But I would ask him, "If abortion is morally wrong, aren't you responsible for discouraging it?"
How Romney stands with his church and with God isn't my business, but as someone who seeks out candidates who stick to their principles, I wonder how much Romney sticks to his religious principles. If he is willing to bend on one principle, chances are he is willing to bend on others if it is necessary for him to survive in politics.
Romney still has yet to officially throw his hat into the ring, but he has given several political speeches, like the one earlier today, which pretty much means he and his team are prepping for a presidential run. Will you be supporting Mitt?
