I have been resisting the urge for some time now to post any political diatribes. However, consider yourself warned. This week I might start going a little crazy with the political talk. Erik blames my obsession with the presidential primaries on the writer's strike, but I think I would feel the same way even if we did have new episodes of the Office and 30 Rock to discuss.
I want to make it very clear to all 20 or so of my readers that this blog endorses Mitt Romney for President.
Things I do not endorse are:
Citizens Who Do Not Think Politics Are Important
Citizens Who Do Not Vote
Citizens Who Do Not Keep Themselves Informed
Here are just a few of my reasons why Mitt Romney should be the next President of the United States:
1. He supports the enforcement of immigration laws and opposes amnesty.
2. He has a proven track record of success in business which will carry over to success in revitalizing our economy.
3. He is smart, articulate, and well educated in foreign affairs.
4. He will fight for moral causes like the preservation of marriage as we know it.
5. His presidency will most likely avoid a "Clinton-esque" soap opera, thus avoiding any embarrassment to our country.
There are many reasons, but these are the most important to me. The last thing I have wanted to do was to support Romney only because he is a Mormon. Just because I am irritated by all the media coverage of bigoted voters in Florida who said they did not vote for Romney because he was a Mormon, this does not mean that any of us should vote blindly for Romney just because he IS a Mormon. However, I am confident that if you do your research, you will agree that Romney is the best candidate.
I guess what I am really asking is that we all read a little less on Britney Spears and start studying up more on the candidates. After watching the media's coverage of the GOP Florida primary, I can't help but think that people are easily swayed by media bias, don't do their research, and frankly, don't care. I have talked to numerous friends over the past few weeks who have told me that they a) aren't interested in politics because it is too overwhelming, b) don't know much about any of the candidates, or c) won't pay attention to anything until the general election. While we all have a right to be ignorant and passive, this indifferent attitude towards deciding who will be the next leader of the most powerful country in the world drives me up a wall!
Now, please, be pro-active, and don't forget to vote on Super Tuesday. If we have learned anything from Florida politics, it is that every vote counts.
