Upon winning the Maryland, Wisconsin, and Washington D.C. primaries last week, Governor Mitt Romney gave a wonderful speech about “restoring the promise of America.” He reminded the crowd to check out the gas price per gallon as they “drive home tonight… Just take a look at the prices and then ask yourself, ‘Four more years of that?’” Yes, independent thinkers, we conservatives and Mitt Romney all realize that the president does not control the price of gasoline. However, his policies can influence it.
Today, Tuesday, Apr. 10, 2012, Sen. Rick Santorum dropped out of the race. Meanwhile, on FOX News Sunday a mere two days ago, Newt Gingrich said he would not end his bid for the presidency. He implied that Gov. Romney will win the nomination. So, what’s going on here? Gingrich said he wants to stay in to influence the party platform. His staying in also helps Romney because he will pull votes from Ron Paul, and I agree with every facet of this strategy.
Back to the Romney speech, the governor made the point that the current president spent the last four years trying to transform America into a centralized state. He also told the crowd, to cheering, that he “will spend the next four years rebuilding the foundation of an opportunity society, led by free people and free enterprises.” Governor Romney pointed out that President Obama, who despises profits, doesn’t grasp that a plant closes when a business loses money, when it is not profitable. Instead, the former community organizer turns to government to lift people up, and sees business as the bad guy. Mr. Obama’s vilification of success and his chastising of business in general hurts the communities he tries to help. This government-centered society then must increase unemployment insurance and spending because more people will lose jobs under his policies, and “there’s always someone who’s entitled to something more.” This leads to high unemployment, stagnant wages and crushing debt. “It’s beginning to sound familiar, isn’t it?”
”I don’t want to transform America,” he repeated. “I want to restore to America the economic values of freedom and opportunity and limited government that have made us the powerhouse of the world. It’s opportunity, not a check from government, it’s opportunity that has always driven America and defined us as Americans. …Free enterprise has done more to lift people out of poverty…and to make our lives better than all the programs of government – combined… Government has to become the ally of business, not the opposition of business…” Wonderful words for a weakened, dependent, and success-starved country, thank you, sir.
Gov. Romney said that the economy is the product of all the businesses in it, but this president does everything he can to demonize business. “It’s a bit like saying you like an omelet, but you don’t like eggs.” No doubt, that night we heard Mitt Romney’s best speech yet. Let’s wish him success in the upcoming election!
