Mitt Romney has suspended his campaign. I’m not sure what that means. Does that mean that he will start it up again later?
Okay here’s a portion of what Mitt said, “This is not an easy decision for me. I hate to lose.”
“If I fight on in my campaign, all the way to the convention, I would forestall the launch of a national campaign and make it more likely that Senator Clinton or Obama would win. And in this time of war, I simply cannot let my campaign, be a part of aiding a surrender to terror,” he said during the conference. Members of the audience shouted, “No!” as Mr. Romney spoke.
Surrender to Terror? Isn’t that what the far Right is doing by infusing terror into everything. This kind of talk, surrender to terror,” makes me nauseated (or maybe it is that Mitt Romney is nauseating). The assumption is that liberals want to die by a crazed terrorist.
All that I know, is that it is possible to be safe and fight Al Qaeda without giving up my civil liberties. The government can listen to terrorist without listening in on my phone or looking at my e-mail. Under a real democrat, we should be able to kill or capture Osama bin Laden and his posse We should be able to create a system where we don’t have to fear opening our mail because of anathrax or some other chem-bio weapon.
Mitt, I’m really sorry to see you go. I have been doing all of this reading on Mormonism. I wanted to expose the lie that Mormonism is a flavor of Christianity. It is not. It is not even close. More on this later.
