Romney Understands America
Townhall.com ^ | May 15, 2012 | Dennis Prager

Posted on 05/15/2012 6:26:56 AM PDT by Kaslin

On Saturday, Mitt Romney delivered a speech to the 6,000 Liberty College graduates.

It was an important speech, not only because it seems to have closed the gap between Romney and evangelical Christians but also because it spelled out major themes in Mitt Romney's understanding of America.

Romney: "You know who you are. And you know whom you will serve. Not all colleges instill that kind of confidence . . . ."

This is a truism. Most American universities seek to graduate men and women who are as committed to secularism as nearly all the members of faculty are. In contrast, at traditional Christian and Jewish schools, the aim is, as Romney said, to produce students who know "whom [they] will serve."

What Romney is asking is this: If one is not morally accountable to God, to whom or what is one morally accountable? Most universities will respond: to one's conscience. But those who adhere to Judeo-Christian values do not trust the conscience alone. What Nazi or Communist mass murderer was not at peace with his conscience? The conscience is as easily manipulated as the heart (the heart being the other guide to behavior among most college graduates).

Romney: "Moral certainty, clear standards, and a commitment to spiritual ideals will set you apart in a world that searches for meaning."

The death of God has not only led to moral uncertainty; the secular left actually boasts of its moral uncertainty. Unlike the religious, who have a black and white view of moral issues (so the left tells us), those on the left struggle with moral complexity. But this is self-delusion. The left is as morally certain about its positions as the most fundamentalist Christian. Where is the left's moral uncertainty about same-sex marriage? About abolishing capital punishment? About race-based affirmative action? About higher taxes? Indeed, about anything the left believes in?

Romney: "That said, your values will not always be the object of public admiration. In fact, the more you live by your beliefs, the more you will endure the censure of the world."

Is that ever true. Those of us who adhere to Judeo-Christian values and live a religious life are mocked as fools when not dismissed as dangerous. If you believe that nature was designed by a Creator, you are regarded as an anti-science buffoon. If you get your values from the Bible, you are considered a living anachronism.

Romney: "Harvard historian David Landes devoted his lifelong study to understanding why some civilizations rise, and why others falter. His conclusion: Culture makes all the difference. Not natural resources, not geography, but what people believe and value. . . . For those who graduate from high school, get a full-time job, and marry before they have their first child, the probability that they will be poor is 2 percent. But, if those things are absent, 76 percent will be poor. Culture matters."

This is the key to understanding the underclass here and in Europe. But it is the antithesis of what is taught at American universities. They -- and the rest of the left -- teach that it is not values or culture that most determines human behavior. Violent crime is not caused by a murderer's lack of moral values, father, self-discipline, church life, or marriage, but by poverty and/or racism.

Romney: "Central to America's rise to global leadership is our Judeo-Christian tradition . . . ."

Exactly right. Every free country on earth was formed by Christianity or shaped by a Christian country that imposed it (India and Japan, for example). And the freest of them all, America, has been the most Judeo-based Christian country in the world.

Romney: "The American culture promotes personal responsibility, the dignity of work, the value of education, the merit of service, devotion to a purpose greater than self, and, at the foundation, the pre-eminence of the family."

And each one of these values has been under siege by the left. The left undermines personal responsibility by excusing the irresponsibility of all but white Christian males; undermines the dignity of work with ever-increasing entitlements; shifts "the merit of service" from individuals and communal institutions to the state; and weakens the family by strengthening people's reliance on the government, and by removing all stigma to unwed motherhood.

Romney: "From the beginning, this nation trusted in God, not man."

This is why one of the mottos of this country is "In God We Trust." This is the heart of the cultural civil war in which America is now engaged. Do human rights come from the Creator or from men?

Romney: "People of different faiths, like yours and mine, sometimes wonder where we can meet in common purpose, when there are so many differences in creed and theology."

A very significant statement -- a major Mormon figure stating that mainstream Christians and Mormons have "different faiths." But even more important is his truly American realization that all Americans, of every faith (including Islam, one might add), and even those who have no formal religion, "can meet in common purpose." And that purpose is living by and promulgating the American value system: "Liberty," "In God We Trust," and "E Pluribus Unum."

Now if Romney will just stick with that program and go after Obozo et al. like an avenging angel. He has enough verifiable ammunition to utterly destroy the administration in power and its supporters but he has a formidable enemy in Obozo's lap dog media.

Romney Understands America

I guess that's why he homosexualized the public schools, state government, and the courts, banned guns, pushed through socialized medicine, complete with $50 co-pay taxpayer-funded abortions, and instituted homosexual faux "marriage" in violation of his state's constitution.

Going to mention something to consider, before this becomes a Romney-bashing foodfight:

This morning I lurked on that DUmb site. Two observations: I’ve never seen so many angry homosexuals gathered in one single place before. Good grief, the left won everything they had hoped for in 2008, yet to this day they’re still po’ed. Liberals actually seem to want, to be unhappy.

But that’s not the most important point.

That was: one poster actually mentioned and presented in support of Obama, something they’d found against Romney ... lurking on FR. And attributed it, as such.

Loose lips time, people.

Romney’s not the problem anymore, not one single candidate is competing against Romney anymore. Except ... Obama.

Obama is the problem.

________________________________________

Bit of mind reading going on there Dennis..

Willard never said that and you dont know that he meant that...

You just assume from your own Christian perspective that Willard meant that...

But Willard Mitt Romney is a Mormon with a entirely different mindset from Christian theology when it comes to what or who God is and what He might require of us...

Willartd drops unexplained little sayings frequently woith no frollowup or challenge...

Did anyone dare ask Willard what he meant by “From the beginning, this nation trusted in God, not man.” or did Dennis just take that as face value and contribute it to the God of the Bible ???

Did Dennis know that like Beck, Willard thinks Mormons came here 5,000 years ago from Israel ???

And look at this one “People of different faiths, like yours and mine, sometimes wonder where we can meet in common purpose, when there are so many differences in creed and theology.”

Right there Willard is admitting he is not a Chjristian

and yet Dennis laps it up and ignores the obvious...

Couldnt Liberty University find a Christian to give that speech ???

Jerry Falwell must be rolling over in his grave...

Romney’s family lived by their belief that only men who practiced polygamy became gods and earned their own planet and looked what happened to them ..

they had to so-called “endure the censure of the world.”

Bibi Netanyahu is American educated, best friend of freedom in the middle east, probably the closest thing to a Margaret Thatcher-like friend America could have.

I'd rather have him as President than Obama. But for you, since he's a Jew and not a Christian, I suppose you'd prefer 4 more years of a marxist racist?

I don’t oppose Romney politically because he’s Mormon. I oppose him because he is the most liberal governor in the history of the United States, and an obvious prevaricator.

Jim Robinson ... "thanks" for letting us continue to post the "truth" about Mitt Romney here at Free Republic ...

Committed to secularism, committed to socialism, and committed to tearing down the sovereignty of the US and replacing it with the Tyranny of International Law.

While those of us who have been there and done that appreciate your Quixotic quest, you will find that trying to reason with this pack of idiots is about as useful as trying to train a dog not to pee on a fire hydrant.

It can't be done, because that is the nature of a dog.

I don't even bother reading the drivel which they write anymore, much less respond to it. Like the left, they are always miserable, full of anger and full of hate. They have nothing positive to offer, so they get their jollies by sharing their hate and misery.

Long after they are mouldering in some forgotten grave, the objects of their hatred will still be thriving and doing positive things.

The idea that Axelrod, Obama, or the DNC is "taking notes" (opposition research) from Free Republic postings ...

is completely laughable ...



There is only "one" person who knows where all of Mitten's bodies are buried ...

and that's Mittens himself.

And Axelrod-Obama-DNC "already" know where ALL of Romney's corpses are buried ...

if for no other reason ... that Juan McCain complied the list himself (in 2008) ... and the damn thing is available on the internet ...



The "bravo-sierra" that you Romney-Botts try to peddle around here is (frankly) nauseating ...

please just dump your "steekin" garbage where it belongs ...

in an eliptical orbit around Planet Kolob ...

It’s very simple. Holder and Obama are black racists, in gist of Wright preacher guy, of the Mexican genocide in fast and furious etc...

Why would we condone as GOP members of congress the conivance with genocide of Mexicans in FAst and Furious? Why would we have that in our backyard?

Why let them run with the MExican vote when they murder Mexicans?

Once again, the GOP which was for civil rights is surrendering the credit to racist retarded democrates. WHY?

If you are insinuating that I have a problem with Jews Mister (?), you couldn't be more wrong so please keep your religion baiting comments to yourself. I would love Bibi or his type for a prez. however we are probably going to be stuck with Romney which is a big(?) improvement over the Marxist Punk we have now. That having been said any further comments from you will just be ignored, I am running out of patience with bomb throwing baiters of any type or agenda.

Bibi Netanyahu would make a great president, were he a U.S. citzen ... and I'd vote for him in a New York minute ...

Is Bibi Netanyahu of the Jewish faith ? Yep ...

Would that hinder me (as an Evangelical Christian) from voting for Bibi ? Nope ...

Why ?



Because the Jewish man Bibi Netanyahu believes in the divine Yahweh of the Scriptures ...

and that (from a contemporaty Jewish perspective) that when the Messiah arrives ... He will "not" be Satan's Brother ...

and that there is but "One God" (The Great I AM that I AM) ...

and "absolutely" NOT the collection of Joseph Smith "Godlings" floating around outer space ... looking for their own Planet Kolob homestead ...

complete with multiple wives (presumably each with their own Cadillac) ...




Mitt Romney is no more a "Christian" than the Incas of Peru ... or the natives of Easter Island ...



Listen well ... "Sam_Paine" ...

You ... the Anti-Christ Godless Blasphemous news media ... and the Pro-Choice GOP E-RINO yacht-club elites ...

will desperately try to convince genuine Christians (saved by Christ's grace) ...

to WORSHIP the Anti-Christ "mini-beast" that Mitt Romney represents ...



And my only response to "you" ... and your slavish ilk ... is ...

"Go to Hell" ... with your "lord" Satan ...

Absolutely! This is one of those key ideas that civilization depends on. To the extent that people get this idea, we have a chance of avoiding barbarism.

It is fascinating. Not even a knee-jerk reaction. It is a push-button thermonuclear reaction.

Three characteristics.

1) Romney is satan and will bring eternal damnation on the nation, but Obama gets nary a peep.

2) Not only should Romney not win, but Obama should win in order to punish the right, RINOs, conservatives, Tea Party....and reward violent occutards, LGBT abortionist ecomarxists.

3) They won't be happy until we are all taught a lesson for not nominating someone who didn't even bother to run for the nomination.

You're right. But make no mistake about it.

I have very serious reservations about Mitt Romney. I think he is way closer to Harry Reid than he is to Ronald Reagan. He is from the Bush/Rockefeller/Dewey wing of the party which has presented every nominee for the GOP in my lifetime, except for two: Goldwater in 1964 and Reagan in 1980 and 1984.

We will have to hold his feet to the fire and keep him accountable. But he's still way better than the Marxist thug in the white hut.

One of the things which will enable me to hold my nose and vote for him is just thinking about the stark raving mad hissy fit these religious bigots will have should he defy the odds and actually be elected.

Plus, I might add, there are thousands of older Roman Catholic voters in the rust belt region where I live who feel the same way because they are old enough to remember when Catholics, not Mormons, were the main targets of this irrational bigotry.

So, in a way, these bigots might actually help Romney over the finish line with their lunatic screaming. How ironic is that?

Sam,

That's a legitimate point ... good call ...

I realize that I make frequent references to Mitt Romney's religion ...

But that's not my primary fear of him ...



My "political soul" trembles in fear ... correctly ...

when I try to imagine what Romney would do to the Conservative American Tea Party movement ... specifically including Free Republic ...

"if" Romney was actually elected president.




We would all be "boresighted", just like Romney and his Yacht-Club GOP "brownshirts" tried to ASSASSINATE Sarah Palin ...

before, during, and after the 2008 election.

"Mitt Romney the Conservative" is just a well-heeled white version of Obama ... loving nothing except POWER ...



Not only would a Romney presidency "completely" betray American Conservatives ...

but once elected ... Mitt Jager's "Wild Horses" couldn't stop Mittens from signing Presidential Executive Orders for Gay Marriage ... Gay Marriage ...

you name it ...




Mitt Romney would be a Nancy Pelosi Democrat ... if they would have him ...

But even the dimm-witted Socialists KNOW BETTER than to trust Romney ...



Even George Soros likes Romney ...

and that's what scares the heck out of me about that "political Quisling slimeball" ...

Liberals actually seem to want, to be unhappy.
Liberals hate happiness. They especially hate it in others but they even hate it in themselves. The life of a liberal is like one big long bad acid trip.

Most folks aren’t “pro-Romney”.

I was ABR in the primary and ABO in the general.

Simple as that.

I’ll give Romney one thing.
Unlike his opponent, he doesn’t hate America.

We will have to hold his feet to the fire and keep him accountable. But he's still way better than the Marxist thug in the white hut.

It came to me in the mail yesterday. A glossy flyer from RomneyCo. A bunch of fake plastic banana pictures of Americana and platitudes about the heartland.

But you know what, even if he's a total fraud lying about it, damnit, I want to hear the President saying that kind of thing about morning in America. We need a cheerleader not a destroyer like Obama.

Even if he doesn't do anything he's saying, and is just saying it to garner favor with conservatives, at least he's saying it.

Obama's not sending me anything because his campaign knows I'm no friend of theirs.

Romney's dad didn't praise Saul Alinsky and served his country during WWII, just like his dad and his grandpa and great-grandpa Romneys, Mitt Romney proudly put on the uniform for his country in the 1960s and didn't try to avoid service by going to France for a few years, Romney's five sons all served their country, Romney never tried to support gun control, abortion, gays, or socialism.

Yep, that's one helluva patriotic family!

Wait a minute...Romney's dad, grandpa Romney, great-grandpa Romney all managed to avoid serving their country..and Romney spent 3 years in France and got deferments to avoid the draft, and none of Romney's sons bothered serving their country, and Romney's dad praised Saul Alinksy and Mitt Romney supported gays, gun control, socialism, and abortion....

Sorry pal, Romney's actions are those of somebody who isn't a big fan of the United States of America.

That was: one poster actually mentioned and presented in support of Obama, something they’d found against Romney ... lurking on FR. And attributed it, as such.

Loose lips time, people.


That is the silliest attack on criticizing Romney that I have ever seen. That's the kind of crap that Democrats would use against other Democrats who would criticize Obama. There's no room for that here - we're Conservatives who are going to call it like we see it.

But those idiots on DU are truly wasting their time on FR.

For you see, there is this thing, it's called the internet. The other Republican candidates in 2008 and 2012 said many things about Romney, and they are available on the internet. John McCain's campaign even compiled a dossier on Romney's weaknesses. It's also on the internet.

And, SHOCKER, things that Romney did in Massachusetts the one time he's actually won an election, those have been leaked on to the internet. Things like supporting gun control, gay "rights", abortion, and socialism.

Sorry my friend, you can't cover up Romney's past.

True, but the destructive dead-end sore losers still persist. Like hemorrhoids, they just continue to cause pain in the a&&.
