Mitt Romney is a Fraud

by pjamesbeardsley

In a speech in Chicago, Mitt Romney said the following:

For three years, President Obama has expanded government instead of empowering the American people.  He’s put us deeper in debt. He’s slowed the recovery and harmed our economy. And he has attacked the cornerstone of American prosperity, our economic freedom.

Mr. Romney is absolutely right on all fronts.  Barack Obama is guilty of all of the above.

What I fail to understand, Mr. Romney, is how the man who (1) signed RomneyCare, (2) forced Massachusetts citizens to pay for other people’s abortions and contraception, (3) endorsed an absurd, arbitrary energy tax to curb a fake problem, and (4) tried to raise Massachusetts’ corporate taxes by so much that the heavily Democratic legislature cut the tax cut in half can be expected to be an alternative to that.  You drove Massachusetts into debt, slowed its recovery, and harmed its economy.  You crushed economic freedom.

You’re a fraud, Mitt Romney.  If you truly believed economic freedom was the cornerstone of American prosperity, you would advocate ending the Federal Reserve, ceasing unconstitutional overseas spending, and ending the income and corporate taxes.  In other words, you would drop out and endorse Ron Paul.
