The countdown has begun to what will be the most important presidential election in decades, and perhaps in the modern history of the United States. Many undecided voters still question: Why is Mitt Romney the right man for the job?
Previously, we covered:
Reason #12: He is not Obama.
Reason #11: We know who Mitt Romney is.
Reason #10: Paul Ryan, VP.
Today we look at Reason #9: Mitt Romney will HONOR the United States of America.
Mitt Romney will not diminish, in any way, the United States of America. He will not bow. He will not apologize. He will embrace–and help US to embrace–our exceptionalism.
Obama has literally and figuratively bowed before foreign dignitaries.
He blatantly broke presidential protocol when he bowed—deeply—before a Saudi king (April 2009) and then, again, before the Japanese Emperor (November 2009). Aside from God, our president does not bow before any other leader:
“In Article 1 Section 9 of the US Constitution one will find the following: No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince or foreign State.”
“Now some might argue that this would apply only to our Government; however, the reasoning seems very clear within the Freedom Charters that the US had the intent of universally rendering invalid any title of nobility as We believe that “All men are created equal.” This does not mean that American Government did not recognize the authority of other monarchs to govern their own people–just that our Forefathers did not recognize any sort of silly individual supremacy over others which might be claimed by Royalty. In addition, as soon as the Founders wrote those powerful words concerning the “equality of all men,” then slavery had to, imperatively, be on the way out as it flew in the face of our stated principles as so set forth by the Founder’s own words. And so it was that slavery was eventually abolished, although it took 90 more years and a horrendous war (with regard to State’s rights in conjunction with slavery) to finally and thankfully eradicate it from the land.” Conservative Refocus, Barry Secrest.
Obama has repeatedly apologized on behalf of the US to the world without reason.
Please view the link to a video montage of various apologies provided above. Below, we have the same and similar examples:
April 3, 2009: Strasbourg, France:
“In America, there’s a failure to appreciate Europe’s leading role in the world. Instead of celebrating your dynamic union and seeking to partner with you to meet common challenges, there have been times where America has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive.”
April 6, 2009: Ankara, Turkey to the Turkish Parliament:
“Another issue that confronts all democracies as they move to the future is how we deal with the past. The United States is still working through some of our own darker periods in our history.”
April 17, 2009, Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, at the Summit of the Americas:
“While the United States has done much to promote peace and prosperity in the hemisphere, we have at times been disengaged, and at times we sought to dictate our terms.”
April 20, 2009: CIA headquarters, Langley, Virginia:
“Don’t be discouraged that we have to acknowledge potentially we’ve made some mistakes. That’s how we learn.”
May 21, 2009: National Archives in Washington D.C.:
“Unfortunately, faced with an uncertain threat, our government made a series of hasty decisions. … I also believe that all too often our government made decisions based on fear rather than foresight; that all too often our government trimmed facts and evidence to fit ideological predispositions. Instead of strategically applying our power and our principles, too often we set those principles aside as luxuries that we could no longer afford. And during this season of fear, too many of us — Democrats and Republicans, politicians, journalists, and citizens — fell silent. In other words, we went off course.”
Mitt Romney will not bow to the leader of any other country. He will not apologize for the actions of, the principles of, or the People of the United States of America.
As Romney stated in his acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention, Obama promised to “slow the rise of the oceans and heal the planet.” Lofty, God-like promises–metaphorical at best, empty in reality when coming from a mere human.
Romney’s promise is grounded and real. He will help our families to achieve a better life. He will strive to repair the damage wrought over the past almost four years by the current administration. He BELIEVES in US.
We want, and need, a leader who believes in the exceptionalism of this country and Her people. We want, and need, the strength of a true leader, and that leader is:
Mitt Romney as the next President of the United States.
