Why Romney is much better candidate than McCain

1. Mitt Romney is a brilliant guy. He graduated cum laude from Harvard Law School and also grauated top five percent from Harvard Business School. WOW! McCain, on other hand, graduated near bottom of his class from Annapolis.

2. Mitt Romney is an incredibly smart business leader and manager. He made himself into a multi-millionaire that he is. He was, among many other things, a CEO of fantastically successful venture capital company. His investment propelled forward companies like: Staples, Bright Horizons Family Solutions, Domino’s Pizza, Sealy, Brookstone, and The Sports Authority. He earned his 200 million himself! Of course, as a son of Michigan Governor he was not poor before, but his leadership skills and business acumen is unequaled among all politicians for the past 10 years. George W. Bush was in business too, but he was far from ever being as successful as Romney. And what did McCain do in the same time? He passed liberal legislation like McCain-Feingold, McCain-Lieberman, and McCain-Kennedy.

3. Romney is a true conservative, McCain is a closet liberal. Any true republican should be ashamed of McCain who co-authored leftist bills like McCain-Kennedy illegal immigrant amnesty, McCain-Feingold anti-free speech bill, and McCain-Lieberman global warming bill. When law-abiding immigrants like myself and American citizens rose against McCain-Kennedy he called us — including me! — a NATIVIST! That was equivalent to him spitting in my face. Thank you, Senator, I will always remember how you stabbed me, a legal immigrant, in a back!

4. McCain is supported by corrupt Republican establishment, and voting against him is voting against them. All those fake Republicans who wasted away Republican-dominated Senate and White House, who failed this country so miserably, now support McCain. Why? Because they know that “turn-around artist” Mitt is going to make their life living hell if he will be elected. No more political power plays, no more betraying principles. We need someone in the White House who would destroy the corrupt establishment and freshen the atmosphere in Washington — and that is what Romney used to do for living in private sector! He will do it brilliantly! McCain, on other hand, is a part of establishment, and he deserves all the blame for the failures of Republican Congress just like any other Republican Senator!

5. Romney is a realist and a common-sense strategist, while McCain is an illogical populist. Romney believes that it is a duty of President to discuss privately all options and strategies of War in Iraq – including how to win the war and bring the troops home with victory. McCain’s accusation that private discussion of end-game strategy in Iraq is tantamount to publicly announcing withdrawal of troops is ludicrous! McCain wants our Guantanamo to try to impress foreigners, while Romney wants to keep Guantanamo open! McCain wants us to be popular in the world, while Romney wants us to be safe!

McCain against USA

Is McCain trying to destroy USA?

Let me see the list:

1. McCain-Feingold – the most blatant attack for political freedom of speech. The act places ludicrous limitations on how candidates for political office can be criticised in an election race. If he insane? I do not know! Does he try to silence freedom of speech? YES!

2. McCain-Kennedy – his creating this piece of liberal vomit legislation was like a slap in my face. I am a legal immigrant, I became a US citizen three years ago. I never have thought that a Republican would be so hare-brained where it comes to respecting the immigration laws and border security of this nation. Today he acts as if immigration laws do not count. Perhaps, tomorrow he will say Fifth Amendment does not count too?

Illegal immigrants do not pay taxes, steal IDs and Social Security numbers, violate our sovereign right to secure borders, violate immigration laws. Many of the illegals come back and repeat same offences even if deported, exacerbating insult to American laws and sovereignty. If you want to come to USA, please do so – but respect our laws and our borders, damn it! Is it too much to ask for you to come respect our laws and ask for a permission to enter our country? I am an immigrant, and if I did it, so can you.

3. McCain’s libel against Romney – to suggest that private discussion between President of USA and Prime Minister of Iraq about strategy and timetables amounts to supporting a public date for withdrawal is stupid! Has McCain lost his mind demanding that US President not even think about possibility that US troops might be needed elsewhere? Isn’t that the very definition of strategy – discussing ALL possible scenarios, including withdrawal?

4. McCain says leadership is not management – any good manager, by definition is a good leader. His assertion is just moronic. So, McCain wants to be just a “leader” but not a “manager”? Hmm, German word for leader is Furer, so, I guess, McCain wants to be the Furer of America. What about actually doing some work – like planning a war, managing (yes, managing) economy? He spent all his political life in Washington, what does he know about management of economy or management or bureaucracy? Nothing! He is a professional “talker”, whose only claim to fame is crappy McCain-Feingold and McCain-Kennedy bills. He supported surge? Good for him, but that does not excuse his horrific ignorance of other issues, just like economy and immigration.

McCain was a great hero and a great soldier. But as a politician, he consistently takes position that I cannot characterize any other way as being against interests of USA. He is a deeply misguided man who may cause America a huge deal of harm if elected.

Pre-emptive war is a necessary evil in the modern world.

In the past, the wars were fought exclusively by nations. If a nation wanted to go to war, it had to equip and train large number of men, which made any sudden attack on an alert enemy impossible. Weaponry available just hundred years ago was limited by small arms, artillery, and aircraft, which necessitated prolonged war with any decently prepared adversary.

Today, the world is awash with countries obtaining nuclear weapons. The nuke, the miracle weapon of ultimate destruction, which was available exclusively to superpowers only 30 years ago, today is owned by countries like North Korea, India, and Pakistan. Nuclear weapons programs have been discovered and documented in countries like Lybia, Syria, Iraq and Iran.

The reality of today is that any entity — terrorist group or nation of ANY size — that has access to nuclear weapons and capability to place them on USA territory, can realistically defeat USA, if it succeeds to do so. And the enemy does not have to be a nation at all — look at Hezbollah versus Israel, Al-Qaeda versus USA! Imagine a hypothetical scenario: a terrorist organization smuggles nukes accross US-Mexico border into USA, and simultaneously detonates the nuclear bombs in LA, Atlanta, NYC, Dallas, Miami, and Chicago. If, in fact such a horrific atrocity would take place without warning, the USA, for all practical purposes, would be done – majority of people would be killed, and those left alive would hardly be able to re-establish our country as we know it.

This is why, it is a sad but crucial necessity to keep pre-emptive war as a viable option when dealing with nations/entities that are unresponsive to other means of negotiations and present clear danger to USA.

Within this framework, Iraq war is a justifiable one. President Bush attempted for 6 months to resolve the Iraqi WMD crisis in UN security council to no avail. Iraqis and the Europeans flatly refused to provide any guarantees that Iraq did in fact destroy its WMD, and that no terrorist group will ever take possession of stockpiles of nerve gas that Saddam used against Kurds. After six months of fruitless negotiations, just having been brutally attacked on 911, our country had no other option that to pre-emptively attack Iraq in order to be sure it will not be a threat to USA any more.

Pakistani Cleric wants world to convert to Islam,….or else

From the SUN online [h/t: JawaReport]:

“A FANATICAL Pakistani cleric told The Sun yesterday of his chilling dream to turn the world Muslim – by force if necessary.

Qari Hifzur Rehamn, 60, spoke openly of imposing Islamic law’s stoning and beheading on Britain – as Pakistan was rocked by unrest over the assassination of Benazir Bhutto.

He warned: “We want Islamic law for all Pakistan and then the world.

“We would like to do this by preaching. But if not then we would use force.”
