Skip to comments.Guilty, Especially If Proven Innocent

It read like something straight out of "The Onion".
"Innocent until proven guilty is for criminal convictions, not elections."
So spake Mitt Romney, would-be King of the Establishment Republicans.
This one sentence shows a complete betrayal of all American mores and morals. In every walk of life -- law, elections, even reputations -- Americans have cherished the concept that one is innocent until proven guilty. This shows how dangerous Establishment Republicans are. They are every bit as dangerous as the most liberal Democrat.... and if given enough freedom to act, they would happily join Democrats in rounding up and killing Conservatives.
Right now, such a sentiment is reserved for Roy Moore, who clearly is the Establishment's second-worst nightmare (the first being Donald Trump).
Frankly, I'm surprised that Mitt Romney -- or as I like to call him, Mitt (R)Money -- didn't go a half-step further, and declare Roy Moore "Guilty, even if proven innocent."
The last year and a half have been the most revealing in all of American politics. We have certain proof that there is but one party in Washington, we have certain proof that they are more than happy to ignore voters wishes and even the results of elections, we have certain proof that they will stop at nothing to thwart the common citizen and their will.
It reveals a very dangerous situation, a situation that shows that the Establishmenty is completely unrestrained by American customs, laws, and basic moral fairness. I suspect that the Establishment would even allow a systemic collapse of America. "Better to burn it and rule over ashes," they think, "then to lose power."
If citizens sieze back government from these Esablishment Elites, let us use their words against them. We will not consider individuals such as Mitt Romney innocent until proven guilty. We will consider him guilty, and sentence him accordingly.
I banged this out quickly, and in my anger, didn’t proffread. Thusly, misspellings and typos.
You should know that by now Laz.
Mitt played butt-boy to the Kenyan and hates it when anyone stands against liberalism.
You banged it good.
Mitt Romney is a non-factor
I strongly suspect that Mitt Romney is a sexual predator and a threat to children.
It was great to see Trump play Romney for a fool and let him think he had a chance at SOS
If Mitt runs for the Senate decent folks across the US will have a field day!
We won’t give up.
What scares me is this guy is going to run for Orin Hatchs seat and, since its Utah, he will probably win it
No way to show he's innocent. No way of proving he's guilty. It's he said/she said.
Mitt is a douchebag.
I wouldn’t matter what the allegations were, Mittens would pop up out of his hole and support the GOP-E Uniparty without any data or proof.
I could have fleshed it out a lot more, but... hey, I was pissed.
Dude- this is awesome - especially the title
I am going to share this on FB
Before I read your follow up post, I thought it was a professional piece.
You are an excellent writer and a superlative thinker.
You remind me of......
(though my gung fu is slightly better)
RAT Romney is a piece of filth, on the same level as Hillary Hag:
Mitt Romney was born rich — his dad was the the CEO of American Motors, and later governor of Michigan — but Mitt got much richer by through ill-gotten gains. In some cases, the companies that he ran made him rich through outright fraud and criminal behavior, but most of the time he it was his technically legal predatory capitalism at Bain & Co.— leveraged buyouts, taking over companies by borrowing against their own assets, stripping them of resources, firing workers, busting unions and getting rid of workers’ pensions. Meanwhile, he himself gets a multimillion dollar annual pension from Bain, which he pays minimal taxes on due to tax shelters and hiding his money in shady, foreign tax havens (such as Bermuda, the Cayman Islands, Luxembourg, and Swiss bank accounts) that have extreme secrecy.
Top Aide Illegally Impersonating Police Officers
The most bizarre scandal of Romney’s 2008 campaign involved Jay Garrity, Mitt’s director of operations (basically, his right-hand man.) Garrity resigned from the campaign after several allegations that he claimed to be a policeman, and used that authority to intimidate people.
Using fake badges is, of course, illegal.
Let's take over the world.
Romneys wrong when he argues that proof is a requirement only in criminal convictions. This idea of innocent until proven guilty has become an American value its how we dole out judgment. We can't just let anyone capable of uttering an accusation destroy someones life with allegations that turn out to be baseless.
I 2nd that sentiment completely.
You can, of course, but I intend a rewrite to flesh it out more and remove any spelling and/or grammer erors.
