I Would Love To Be Wrong - But I'm Not

I Would Love To Be Wrong – But I’m Not

As I went for my morning exercise today, the tropical air and breeze greeted me with the promise of spring as only Florida can offer. I’ve experienced nice mid-winter days in all but probably a couple states, but none like in FLorida. As I walked, I thought how much I loved Florida, and how wrong I had been as for years I couldn’t imagine why anyone would want to move here. I thought how glad I was that my friend had been so tenacious in insisting I come south. As I walked and soaked in the incredible beauty of the morning, I thought how happy I was to have been wrong.

Which brings me to my point. When I was in college I disagreed with members of the black student group, who felt that I, as president of my college student government I should support the budding race-based affirmative action. I didn’t and I was right not to. I would like to say that I was wrong when many years ago I argued with a Christian attorney and several church leaders, who disagreed that the government would soon attempt to control what the church and pastors preached. I was right.

I condemned the use of racial hyphenations as being a tool that could only serve to separate people and foment animus. I would like to have been wrong, but I wasn’t. I would like to have been wrong about the homosexual agenda going after the military and the church, but once again I was not wrong. There are times I wish I were wrong about education and how ill-equipped children are to enter the real work place, the work place where they can actually hold a real professional positions. But, even though there are those who disagree with me, my peers and colleagues acknowledge I am right.

Without desire or intent to be braggadocios or self congratulatory, I could cite example after example that I would like to have been wrong, but I was not. And that brings me to Mitt Romney.

I wish I were wrong, believe I want to be wrong, but I know in my core being that I am not. I won’t at this time outline the reasons why, but suffice it to say that Romney is being forced upon us and nothing short of his expiring or the immediate end of the world is going to stop that. But, he is not what we need. He is a disaster waiting to happen and that presupposes he can even beat Obama, which I don’t think he can, I don’t care what the make-believe polling data shows.

Ask yourselves, what do you reasonably see Romney doing if by some machination of faustian alchemy he were to win? Does anyone see him doing things different than he did in New Hampshire? Who do you think he is going to be beholding to – you and I or the mega-financiers who are faceless, lurking just out of sight controlling candidates and political parties?

I loathe Obama and his wife as human beings, for their Communist agenda, and his wife’s contempt for the people of America, as witnessed by her brazen, in our face arrogance. No one wants them out of office more than I do. No one, absolutely no one, understands the threat they pose to our nation more than I do, but I am not prepared to simply replace them with someone who is only marginally better. I contend that Boehner and the Republican leadership would simply flip the hour-glass and govern with even more indifference than they have displayed since being elected.

They are counting on our being not just easily misled, but also on our being so fearful of an Obama second term, that we will settle for whoever they put up. I believe we are being manipulated into believing we have played a part in the process, when in fact the outcome was preordained by the political fixers. I believe that the Republican Party has ceased to be the Party of Lincoln and is now more concerned with out Democrating the Democrats. I am convinced that the Republican hierarchy doesn’t want a true conservative – they want a left of center candidate because they don’t believe that a solid conservative cannot win.

I hope I’m wrong, but I don’t see a scenario by which Romney doesn’t get the nomination. That said, nor do I see a scenario by which he can unseat Obama. Not least of which is because Obama, based on his wife’s arrogant, militant, anti-white, in our face belligerence and Romney’s being a Mormon. I believe the stage is already set for blacks to turn out in large numbers and for the Republican Party to be further painted as racist, simply because of Romney’s Mormon heritage.

The Mormon Church, like it or not, fairly or not, I believe is going to be attacked a for their anti-black positions of the recent past. I don’t see anyway around it. I hope I’m wrong, but their vocal supporters such as Sharpton and the NNACP would call corn on the cob racist if it fit their need. We need a better candidate than Romney and the question remains why is the Republican hierarchy so intent on throwing this election?

I’m not telling you how to vote, I’m saying what the outcome is going to be. I would like to be wrong, indeed I would welcome being wrong, just as I was about my life here in Florida. I would welcome writing a piece singing, “yippee I was wrong.” But, that will not happen, because I’m not wrong.

    Mychal, when all those accusations about Herman Cain came out, I posted on here that my gut told me it was Romney’s doing….one way or another. I was told, not by You, but by others, “No way”. Now I’m not so sure I was wrong! Especially after watching him (or as he says, his “PAC”), destroy, or try to destroy, Gingrich. I do believe in Karma, but wish it didn’t take so long to come around….and that goes for the “players” in the White House as well!

    I have never been a conspiracy believer, but I know that something strange has been happening lately in politics that only seem to be explainable by the manipulations of powerful groups behind the scenes. When Herman Cain went out of the picture, all the wind went out of my sails. The remaining candidates don’t do anything for me and I think that is as planned.

    If the Lord tarries and we are not successful in ousting Obama, do you think that we might end up in a Civil War again? I am not advocating war. At the same time I certainly don’t want to live in a communistic country where our constitution is null and void, where we would not be able to have a gun to protect ourselves with and etc. What are our choices if Obama just happens to slide in and be re-elected?

    I have callouses on my nose from all the times I’ve had to vote while holding it. The only person who is serious about getting this country out of debt and getting back to constitutional government is Ron Paul. He is unelectable only because the media says he is and all the sheeple believe what they see on TV. Romney will get the nomination because the fix is in. He will be defeated in November by our present pretend president. Our only hope is to get the evil people out of congress and elect all new people. John Adams said, “One useless man is a shame, two are a law firm and three or more are a congress.”

  8. mamajo January 13, 2012 at 2:54 pm #

    I understand and agree with all of you about Obama, BUT, don’t give up and/or drink the coolaid that the liberals are giving people for free! There are a few conservative candidates that would stem this tide to some degree and, even if it is babysteps toward restoring our country, we must stay strong and fight against this anti-american president who will not listen to the voice of other Americans. We cannot afford to be “all or nothing at all” in our attempts to support some of the rest of the conservatives running for office. All of them have strong and weak spots so I will vote for the one who shows me the most moral integrity and who is willing to step up to the plate and say what he stands for openly. I agree that Romney will likely get the nomination (I distrust the liberals who say he is the only Republican that can win against Obama) and that Romney is not good at arguing and negative inter-action from any of his opposition from what I have seen of him, so he is not up to the task of taking on Obama, But, even Romney is better than than Obama so after the GOP candidate is decided, I’d rather take baby steps toward getting our country back than to accept such a Pharisee as Obama. I just hope and pray that the majority of conservatives will rally behind the GOP candidate so we have a chance at beginning the process of restoring our country. I pray that God will help us towards this end. mamajo

  9. George Cameron January 13, 2012 at 2:22 pm #

    I believe that Communism disguised as “European socialism lite” has infiltrated all levels of our government and educational system to the point that people accept it as good and wholesome. In the 1930’s and 40’s the House Un-American Activities Committee unearthed overwhelming evidence to support Communism’s presence at the highest levels of our government even then. It was for the most part totally ignored from the president on down. Liberal journalists, Hollywood, and university academics (among others) denounced the HUAC as Red Baiters and kooks. We still hear it referred to as McCarthyism when someone brings up the topic of Communism in our government.

    The fact is that Obama is a communist. His advisers are communists. He surrounds himself with communist leaning types everywhere he goes. His goal is to destroy the US and bring us under Communist subjection. It has been done as the frog in the pot of water until Obama. The heat was turned up to full when he arrived on the scene.

    I think that Romney is a stooge that plays right into the communist agenda. He portrays himself as conservative, but his record is liberal across the board. He tries to be all things to all people and this leaves him no place to stand, except on sinking sand.

    I wish the people could see this and select a better candidate.

    Will I vote for Romney if he is nominated. Unfortunately I must answer “yes”, even though I will need to pinch my nose and close my eyes when I do it, because I do not want Obama in there for a second term. I like any of the candidates, even Ron Paul, better than I like Romney.

    For reference, read “The Red Plot Against America” by Robert E. Stripling and Bob Considine, copyright 1949.

    I agree with everything you say about Romney but he is better than Obama. Marginally better, but at this time, marginally is better than keeping Obama.. So if he IS the candidate and it looks like it then we should all vote for him. If the vote is split the country is lost..we must join ranks this time. Or else.

    The media will continue with its agenda-driven policy of shaping the news instead of reporting it. Example?

    Great Rant, Mychal. I have said from the get-go that Romney was not the man for the job. He lied about his MA Healthcare – the only MA people who love it are the illegals and MA has tons of them. He appears to be ‘full of himself’ (which we have in office right now) – I am trying to figure out if that is confidence or “Look at me, I’m important!” I cannot with sincere good feelings vote for Romney (no matter how many languages he speaks – that was so ‘cheesy!’ Gingrich was right, it did smack of Kerry!). I will NOT vote for Obama.

    Your article is dead on. Romney is nothing more than a liberal Dem in a sharkskin suit. And the Obama’s are a slap in the face to anything and everything American.

    Obama will definitely play the race card once again to get re-elected. I believe Herman Cain was destroyed by the Chicago Democrat thug machine simply because had Obama ran against Cain, neither could play the race card and Obama didn’t like the idea of that at all.

    Electing Romney is nothing more than picking the lesser of two evils. As you accurately state, the Dems will have a field day with his religion, not to mention his continual flip-flops on the issues.

    Someone needs to call Obama onto the carpet. He needs to be held accountable for all the damage he has wrought in three years. Someone needs to risk being called a racist to keep America from devolving into a Communist/Socialist state.

    Not totally off the subject, but an enlightened moment today. Romney is going to be the Republican candidate, period. The Democrats knew this a long time ago and the OWS movement was born. OWS was invented to establish the class warfare scenario against “rich people & corporations” which is how Romney will be represented to the hordes of people who actually fall for the Democrat’s rhetoric. OWS was never a groundswell of citizens, but a well-planned and paid-for movement. The lackeys fell for it and, I believe being paid to occupy. This is the connection, this is the plan!

        Right after I made this comment, I heard a conservative Monica Crowley say the exact same thing. This is the plan. We must fight this class warfare agenda. Free enterprise is what has lifted all boats and made this country great. Socialism/Communism/Marxism has never worked out for the good of the “people”. Why do liberals keep pushing this idea down our throats? I think it is because, at heart, they are losers and they envy winners in our society. Envy, a unnecessary, evil and detrimental emotion. Gets you nowhere. Love your column and your insight and your guts.

    If Romney gets the nomination and wins the White House, the stage has been set by Hussein and Company to have the economy tank during a Republican administration. This will accomplish the ushering in of an even stronger Socialist agenda in 2016. If Hussein wins re-election, he and his ilk will have four more years to completely transform the United States of America, including at least one and possibly two more nominees to the Supreme Court. It is as if the old adage is about to become true: “Heads I win, tails you lose.”

    As I review and scan the current republican climate I realized that we have always been manipulated because candidates have always been forced on us even George HW Bush and George W. Bush. And in my opinion and 41 was really a disaster and 43 certainly had his problems.

    But, what I find interesting is that these entertainers like Beyonce, Russell Simmons, and others continue to support this President when unemployment is the highest among Black Americans and thats not to mention the other economic indicators like high foreclosures. So I that if those economic indicators doesn’t affect them then they just don’t give a dawn about the general welfare of the people unless we can’t afford to buy their records or go to their concerts then maybe they we see that the economy really does affect them too.

    • sumitch January 13, 2012 at 11:13 am #

      You hit that one on the head Elizabeth. All these “entertainers” are looking for is a little free face time. Besides, who cares who they support? I guess some people will vote for Obama because Beyonce will, but they pick a poor political advisor if they do.

      • Elizabeth Lovett January 13, 2012 at 12:25 pm #

        You are absolutely correct about this. But, I am a firm believer the Oprah certainly had an important role in Obama’s election and we can see where that got us. I am certainly one who believes that no one should take their political advice from any entertainer, even ones who may be on our side like John Voight. But we have to admit that Oprah’s endorsement pushed Obama over the top because so many are influenced by pop culture when these entertainers are some of the most corrupt and ill moral people on the face of the earth. For a while every week we were hearing different stories about Oprah and her relationships and whether she is interested in men or women. Now, even if some of that is true, and given that fact that Oprah is a huge media influencer some of that maybe true, and to me that sounds like a confused person. So why would anyone take political advice from that person? That is mindboggling :-)

        sumitch: If you are referring to the Dallas Cowboys, well, we have good players, I believe the problem is coaching. When special teams players get penalized for not knowing the rules, that is a coaching problem. When the Cowboys lose in December because the opposing teams say they have the offensive scheme figured out and know what’s coming, that’s a coaching problem. Our weakness is on defense and special teams. But we have a DefCord that wants to do things his players physically can not do. That is also a coaching problem, or a personnel problem which then points back to the General Manager. /sigh

    We are living some of the last days. The walls are closing in on every front. There is nothing Obama can do that is worthy of media attention. He wants to drastically cut our military while sharing “secrets” with Russia. Nobody seems to care. Our economy is a complete mess and the media and Obama talk like times are great.

    I am just sad. I have been sad since the Cain hope fell apart. None of these candidates excite me. My final act will be to vote against Obama. I don’t care who it is. We must oust Obama no matter what. Mychal you must vote.

    • sumitch January 13, 2012 at 10:34 am #

      Getting Obama out of office will at least leave us with a country to hopefully be able to find a decent candidate next time, although the GOP seems to have a talent for picking a loser. Say what you will, but the GOP didn’t and never has put anything like Obama in the race.

      Is there anything Obama has done that benefits the nation with the possible exception of letting the Seals snuff a few pirates and bin Laden?

      • anna zachariah January 13, 2012 at 1:03 pm #

        Then the Seals were snuffed out! – Very suspiciously so. –Kill Osama in exchange of 20 Seals, plus others?! – & where’s the proof bin Laden is dead? Are we to take Obama’s useless word? – Now just for peeing on dead Teliban the Marines are being crusified! Seems odd those pics came out! (Who took them? Was it a set up? Etc.)

        • Kelso January 13, 2012 at 1:36 pm #

          Every negative situation involving the US does not have to be a setup or a conspiracy. Sometimes our soldiers take these pictures for themselves and somehow they get out. Maybe they posted on Facebook, maybe a buddy downloaded the image for his Facebook page or to email to a friend. Stupid people do stupid things sometimes.

    No Mychal, unfortunately you are right and not wrong…again. As with John McCain, he was chosen for conservatives. We do not get to choose who to choose. It will be Romney and once again, I will not vote for the D or the R, but for the man of principle, whoever that may be. Keep up the good work.

    I won’t vote for Romney in the primary, but if he ends up being the nominee I will hold my nose and vote for him in the general election. He has excellent business and leadership credentials and would be a much better President than Obama or McCain if he had been elected.

      That’s where I come down CatolicoDelLaPalabra. It’s not that I like Romney so much as it is that I hate Obama and fear what he is doing (his arrogance and his super racist wife are another matter that would cause me to vote against him or even want to be in the same room with either).
      I understand what Mr. Massie means and ordinarily I would stand with him, but Obama is actively trying to destroy my country. Romney or any of the GOP runners will not be. I doubt that Romney will do anything to correct the errors of Obamacare, but he won’t work to become a dictator. My preferred Republican is for all intents out of the race, so I’m left with only another runner.
      More than likely there will be other than Republicans and Democrats to vote for, but in my opinion it’s so critical that Obama be removed from office that I would vote for Romney or whoever runs against him from the GOP. None of the potential candidates are the danger he is.
      If Obama is successful in his aims, there’s a good chance that the next election won’t happen. None of the Republicans pose anywhere near the danger to our country as the current occupant of the oval office. A bonus will be getting Pelosi and Reid out of control of the House and Senate, not to mention Holder and the rest of the “let’s get Whitey crowd”.

      • Darlene January 13, 2012 at 11:12 am #

        We don’t know what Romney will do any more than we knew what Obama would do prior to being elected.
        Then we will see what the real agenda is.
        Still asking the big question. Why is there no dirt on Romney? Because he is the choice of the good ole boys that do not want change. Just More Power.

        • sumitch January 13, 2012 at 11:19 am #

          I’ve always said look at what they’ve done, not what they say. And Romney has done a lot more positive than Obama. And I’ve seen what Obama has and will do.

        • sumitch January 13, 2012 at 11:22 am #

          If there’s dirt on Romney (and I’m sure something can be found), the Democrats will find it or make something up. I wouldn’t expect the GOP to trash him, but Newt is doing a pretty fair job.

        Mychal, Sumitch…I hear you both, but don’t give up your hope and passion for what’s right. There is still a movement afoot, you will know it by “common men with a noble motive”… There is still time for the “silent majority” to find a voice…and you’re are both required…
