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.
