    Romney hits his stride defending America

    Romney hits his stride defending America

    Romney finally hit his stride at a speech today in Pennsylvania.

    And all President Obama had to do was attack the very nature of our governing philosophy and the hard work and ingenuity of the American people.

    It’s well worth watching this clip, especially at the 3:44 mark where the crowd erupts in applause and cheering at Romney’s defense of American values:

    What the president said was both startling and revealing. I find it extraordinary that a philosophy of that nature would be spoken by a president of the United States. It goes to something I’ve spoken about from the beginning of the campaign. That this election is to a great degree about the soul of America. Do we believe in an America that is great because of government, or do we believe in an America that is great because of free people allowed to pursue their dreams and build their future?

    Romney gets it, he just needs to express it to all of us more often.

    Here is what Romney’s response should be the next time Obama demands that he release his tax returns:

    There are two axioms (i.e. articles of faith) which underlie American conservatism. One, that each individual is endowed by their Creator with a unique dignity. Two, that human life has a unique and extraordinary value, from conception to grave. Enlightenment was the mass recognition of these fundamental principles. Obama adheres to a primitive, corrupt perception of reality that only a lunatic could reasonably embrace.

      Obama’s faith is incompatible with enlightenment and is antithetical to Judeo-Christian principles. With the latter, a fundamental aspect is that each individual stands to be judged by their individual conscience. Both enlightenment and the Christian faith direct that human life and dignity be respected, not as a collective but individually.

        Collective salvation

        Google it.

        Some still think “collectivism” refers to money, society, government.

        It may to them, but it means a whole lot more to those that actually engage in “collectivism”.

          From what I understand, there is no collective salvation; there is, however, collective damnation. In any case, I am not speaking on the matter of salvation, but of fundamental principles, especially the concept of individual dignity. The circumstances of reality and divine providence dictate the bounds of collectivism in any form.

          The character of our nation is described in the establishment document, The Declaration of Independence. The structure and behavior of our nation is described in The Constitution, most notably in the preamble.

          Since I don’t know from what perspective you intend to argue, I will not comment further on this topic. My own position on the “fine line” should be clear.

    No notes or teleprompter means we are actually seeing the real Romney.

    And it looks pretty good. He comes across better than when reading the carefully prepared speeches.

    Interesting that it was a reaction to the real – off-teleprompter – Obama that got Romney going.

    Looks like there is a real choice here, after all.

      Not that it detracts from his performance but look carefully, he has notes. Very few people can speak extemporaneously without notes. Out of respect for the audience, speakers should be prepared with notes. What is tiresome is reading to the audience or regurgitating a memorized, over-rehearsed speech.

    Considering Romney has been criticized and hammered into a pulp for acting like the limp wet noodle progressive GOP establishment RINO that he is, instead of a strong conservative US Presidential candidate and leader, he is apparently starting to get the message, or so it would seem.

    But we will see if this is just a knee jerk reaction to all of it, or a real change in his political posture.
