more research, fully pursuaded

I have been doing further research on the Massachusetts healthcare When Mitt Romney took over, he was told by the state politicians in office, they were going to have state healthcare. They stated there was nothing he could do to stop it. He spent a year preparing his own plan, which was rejected by the legislature.

The legislature came up with their own plan. Now what In was not sure of before, I have confirmed that he did veto many things they had in the Mass healthcare plan. In due process there comes a point where after veto's, a bill must be signed and that is what took place. It had to be signed. Signing it in due process as a Governor does not make it your plan. It is a propcess.

Now, when people use the word socialized medicine, a conservative will cringe. What the person cringing also needs to realize is the constitution. Under the Constitution is found "States Rights". This of course means that a state has a right to determine what it wants to do. Massachusetts wanted Socialized medicine. Their legislature brought in a plan. In due process after veto's, it has to be signed. That is just how it is. It is how it works.

Intellectual honesty. Looking at the plan that was signed, what he did get to have removed, and what was done to the bill after he left office has everything to do with what it is today. Intellectual honesty would show, he didnt write it, he wasnt around when it was altered. He had to sign it.

Rudy Gulliani says he is for gun control, he also was for abortion. He also stated he would not force his mindset of those opinions on America which is fair enough. Drawing a distinction.

Mitt Romney has stated that he has never been for Nationalized Heath care. He has stated that it should be on a state to state basis and that what works in one state may not in another. The state of Massachusetts favors their health care, right or wrong, by 67%. That is their right. Under constitutional law. People need to get over it and respect it. They do not have to be right to be within the parameters of the intended law. The law is that States can determine on a state to state basis many things.

Mitt Romney also has stated if he were President, his first action would be to give all 50 states waivers on the Obamacare. He stated that would fend it off until it could be formally repealed. What more can we ask? That is what 70% of America wants, to repeal Obamacare.

He gets called a flip flopper? He changed his mind on Abortion one time, from pro to Anti. How many others have changed their mind.... once. That is not flip flopping.

Mitt is not the only problem solver in America that has done great things. Rick Scott is another one. But, I do not believe you will find anyone with the Presidential resume' that Mitt has. Taking any state, let alone a liberal state from 50th in unemployment to 11th nationally in his term is phenomenal. Cutting 341 social programs, to balance a $3 Billion a yr state operating budget deficit to 1% in the black is unbelievable; given he Governed an entitlement state. That alone shows proven tough leadership, and problem solving ability. The Governors in Ohio and Wisconsin are taking great strides in repaing the runaway trains in their states.

Now, look at Mitt's prowess in the business private sector. he is called the greatest Businessman in North America. He has grown big business chains, helped others when asked to. He stepped in when asked to and fixed the fiscally failed Olympics. They offered to pay him $800,000.00 and he turned it down.

America almost failed after Jimmy Carters spending had America printing money at a rate of 12%. Today we are printing money at 120% due to Obama's insane spending. That is 10 times what Carter did and we had high inflation, unemployment and interest rates because of Carter. Now it is as many say, Carter on Steroids.

It took President Reagan almost 6 years to fix the high inflation, high interest rates and insane unemployment brought on by Carters spending which is a pittance compared to the present insanity. There is no room for error this time. No learning on the job for the next President. If that is the case, America as we know it will not only fail, but fold.

I do not see any candidate out there with the private sector success, coupled with the political executive experience and proven success of Mitt Romney. I do not present him as perfect. i do present him as proven in our greatest need, the economy. Socialism takes over when the people have to be saved by the government. The bankrupting of America has to be stopped.

Mitt is against abortion. Against tax dollars spent on illegal aliens. He is for securing the borders. He is for the war against terror. That is more than good enough for me. He isnt perfect, but he is perfect for the need at hand facing America. Proven commodity in Government and the Private sector.

I like her, but no one running has had the success in governing and in the private sector as he has. She didnt balance a budget and she didnt take a state from dead last in unemployment to 11th. Its not even close.

I love Michelle, but I do not think she can do what needs to be done
