From his CPAC speech:" "The invisible hand of the market is more powerful than the lumbering machinery of the government."
And ... "Cap and trade would tax American citizens and American employers and send business and jobs to high poluting nations."
Too bad these words from Romney are only platitudes. Listen a little more, and you hear him promoting the opposite of the things he pretends to support. Don't believe me? Here's what else he said in the same CPAC speech:
Regarding health care: "We need to advance a conservative plan based on free choice, personal responsibility, and private medicine, one that doesn't add msassive new federal spending. I like what I proposed in Massachusetts, and even though the final bill and implemtation aren't what I wanted, the plan is a good model." SO WHICH IS IT, MITT? Do the people make their own decisions, or does a "conservative plan" make it for them?
From what I've read about the heavy fines that hit employers and the self-employed for not knuckling under to the Massachusetts plan, "free choice" is a fantasy and a LIE. How about a "plan" that says the government bows out entirely and truly gives people free choice and lets them take personal responsibility, instead of having it forced on them by the heavy hand of government? Mitt is obsessed with using the government to manage people, you and me, and he has the gall, the audacity, the duplicity, to call it "free market" and "based on choice."
That pretty little tidbit from his CPAC speech about how the "invisible hand of the market" is true -- but obviously he doesn't believe it. In the same CPAC speech, he says "Parts of the stimulus will in fact do some good ... " and endorses the idea that "tax on interest and captial gains should be zero" -- sounds great! Maybe he's finally getting it! -- "... for middle class Americans." *groan* Middle class as defined by who, Mitt? At what income does the "middle class American" cease being middle class and become rich? In other words, what Mitt is really for is the same things the Left wants: more class warfare, more of punishing success and wealth, more of putting the disproportionate bulk of the tax burden on those who produce and take risks. Deb, it's not "Yea, Mitt!" it's Boo, Mitt!
What he says about cap and trade environmental crapola screwing Americans in the global sense is certainly true, but he totally MISSES THE FACT that carbon "plans" are based on a fear-mongering hoax whose ultimate end is to CONTROL every aspect of energy development, energy production, and energy consumption. PERIOD. Instead of having the integrity to face down the lie and protect America, in his CPAC speech he follows up with: "Any carbon plan has to be worldwide in scope. Let's have a worldwide solution, not an American one."
People, LISTEN to the whole Romney, not just the conservatively-correct facade of Romney's platitudes. Romney is a false conservative. His words prove it. All you have to do is listen ... to all of them.
