Mitt Romney: An excellent Republican.

I just saw an advertisement on Facebook for a group that supports Mitt Romney.

It says

Conservative principles are absolutely essential to keeping America strong, prosperous and free. Join Our Team.

What a hoot! The guy who brought socialized medicine to Massachusetts was claiming to be a champion of "conservative principles."

I clicked on the link, assuming it was a some kind of spoof. It took me several moments to realize that no, it was all too real.

That Romney is considered a serious, "conservative" representative of the Republican Party tells you all you need to know about the Republican Party.

It may not be a spoof, but it sure as heck is a farce.


  1. Romney did not bring socialized medicine to Massachusetts.

    No public option!

  2. I am not sure what "conservative principles" are, so maybe Mitt Romney is a good example of them.

    All I know anymore is that what I used to believe were conservative positions, are not really conservative positions, and what I used to believe were liberal positions were also not what I was led to believe.

    I used to hear people say something like "conservatives are good on financial issues and liberals are good on social issues, but I am a libertarian because it is the best of both worlds". The problem with that is that conservatives are not good on financial positions and the liberals are not actually good on social positions, so the idea that a libertarian is some sort of hybrid, I think gives liberals and conservatives far too much credit.
