You read the title right, I want to know why some people think Romney is the best man to run our country.

I am sick and tired of listening to people bash Dr. Ron Paul about this and that. All I hear is why we shouldn't vote for Dr. Paul. I want to hear a legitimate reason why they think Romney would make a better president of the UNITED STATES of AMERICA.

What ideas does he bring to the table that isn't currently in place?

How would he help create new jobs in America?

How would he help the Entrepreneur looking to compete against the corporate big boys?

How would he keep our country safe?

How would he keep inflation down?

How would he fight corrupt political figures who use the system and it's people as pawns to make money and have power.

How would he fight corruption on the state and local levels that give the power back to the people.

How would he address the fact that it cost's my family a third of our paychecks to pay for healthcare, then we still have to pay the deductible and medicine that takes the rest of our paychecks.

How about the fact that there are very few things he has yet to say that hasn't conflicted with something else he said at a different time?

Seriously, the great thing this country once had was a voice and with it the right to tell us why their candidate is the best man for the job. So Tell us, why should we vote for Mitt Romney?



PS: I do not want to hear things like: "because he isn't Obama" or "because he isn't Ron Paul" That is just trolling the board. I want Real answers and I am willing to consider voting for him tomorrow if you actually have a good argument.

The biggest reason people vote for Romney, is that they are dependant on the establishment(which he represents) for their livelihood. This reason they will never admit though. Instead they will try to make him look good in some other ways based on things he have said (which is complete nonsense, since he cannot be trusted anyway due to his proven flip-flopping)

These people are simply afraid they will loose their jobs if the establishment looses the fight, and are therefore not voting with the best interest of the country in mind, but rather with their wallet and short-sightedness.

Put a Romney supporter under scrutiny and you will quickly find out he is either very mis-informed, or just bought and paid for.

I agree with both of the above.

The point of this post is to see if the "Romney supporters" actually have a mind of their own. Or are they just reading from the same script that is given to MSM.

People will vote for Romney out of fear of Obama.

The two-party system is an illusion of choice... if you believe you have a choice, you won't fight or rebel.

Don't like McDonald's? Here's a Burger King... even though they get their meat from essentially the same place.

Don't like Nike? Here's Reebok, even though the leather and materials they use are bought from the same manufacturers.

Don't like an Obama? Here's a Romney... even though they both want nothing more than power and wealth.

It's all about choice. What happens when you don't have a choice? Most people get ANGRY.

As long as we all believe there is a choice, we buy the illusion and believe that if one person doesn't represent us, than the other MUST, and this is simply not true. Both main-stream candidates are there to advance the same cause and keep the people divided over their differences.

This is a time when we need to be united under one cause, and that's why Ron Paul is appealing to the younger crowd who hasn't had the same time to be brainwashed like the baby boomers, who still believe in the illusion.

It's a dangerous situation for this country and whether Americans like it or not, our decisions will have a major impact on the entire planet.

It's time for the curtain to fall.

Putin, Sarcozy, Obama... they are lining up for their end game and we all better be ready for the change that will come if we don't put someone like Ron Paul in office (doesn't have to be Dr. Paul, but should be someone just as honest and REAL).

I won't be holding my breath.

It should be interesting to see if they respond.

If I had made a post stating "Why is Ron Paul the best GOP candidate" they would be coming out of the woodworks with post after post as to why we shouldn't vote for him.

But rarely do I hear an argument as to why I should vote for Romney. and when confronted with it, all I get is "I don't have to tell you" or something to that nature


This is trolling in my book and should be stopped.

I highly doubt we will get any good answers in this thread. But thought I'd give the real posters a chance, as the trolls won't have the answer that isn't already being said in the media.

to be fare here is a post from another thread.




The highly anticipated thread about why I am voting for Mitt Romney:

A few bullet points to get your minds going...

Mitt Romney believes that it is unacceptable for Iran to possess a nuclear weapon.
Believes in a strong military offensive as well as defensive.
Mitt Romney wants to amend the clean air act and any other crazy environmental polices that Obama has enacted in his three years.
Mitt Romney would like to modernized medicare and social security so that they are sustainable for our generation.
Mitt Romney believes whole heatedly in legal immigration, as his family were immigrants. As were all of ours. He knows the system for immigration is broken and he wants to streamline it and take away unnecessary regulations that makes it harder for immigrants to come here. He will secure the border and take away all entitlements which entice immigrants to come here illegally.
Mitt Romney understands that any economic turnaround starts with realistic and attainable goals. Which is why he has proposed his plan which cuts federal spending below 20% for the first year. He will cut $500 Billion by 2016. He will also make congress cut 5% of their budget across the board on day one!

Other plans that affect the economy will be to:
repeal ObamaCare saving $95 Billion as well as individual liberty
He wants to privatize Amtrak which will save us 1.6 Billion
He wants to cut $600 Million in federal subsidies to corporations like PBS and Legal Services Corporation
He wants to eliminate Planned Parenthood which will save us $300 Million
He wants to reduce foreign aid by $100 Million and ask congress why they are sending money to enemies of America. He will eliminate that as well.

For personal income Mitt Romney would like to make 20% tax cuts across the board
Eliminate taxes for those making $200,000 or LESS
For Corporations he would like to make a 25% tax cut across the board.

For Health Care. In place of Obamacare, Mitt will pursue policies that give each state the power to craft a health care reform plan that is best for its own citizens.

Let me know if you want me to include something that I missed and I will surely go back and tell you what Romney wants to do. See, Mitt Romney does not look like Obama so much now does he? While he may not have "revolutionary" plans like Ron Paul, we can't honestly start to fix the problems without first doing something drastic but reasonable and realistic about them!

All information was taken from MittRomney.com


of course this is from his own website, so let's here something not scripted.

You won't get any "good" answers, because there aren't any. Rombama and Obamney are the same. They both want socialism for the masses and power for themselves as they serve their globalist masters. Vote Ron Paul.

Obama and Romney are about as different as Obama and Bush Jr. Same policies, same results.

Because he can win, and he is a much much much better choice than the current president. However, if Ron Paul wins, I will support him as well. No way RP will win, but he will have my support if he wins the nomination.

Well, I am watching this thread. If Romney is truly the frontrunner, there should be lots of people willing to talk about him or promote him. I have not seen any (aside from one thread yesterday). I find it very telling that the only way we know Romney is ahead is from the media and not real world people. Have any of you run into a lot of people talking up Romney? I haven't. I don't expect you will get much Romney response as I don't believe he really has the support they claim.

That's not a good answer.

Why? what qualities does he have that make you feel he is right for the Job?

It appears I am the only Romney supporter here on ATS frankly because you are all Ron Paul supporters. I have met a few who don't vote and few who don't care from other countries. So what is this thread political baiting?? You knew the facts that there are no Romney supporters but me on this forum, so I wonder the true intentions of this thread. I'll tell you why I am voting for Romney because I don't like Obama's socialist policies, nothing in Romney's plans suggest that things will be as bad as under Obama. Ron Paul's stuff is not going to work I have been trying to explain that in my other thread, but then I get loaded with out of context Romney videos or anti-romney political ads. You can call me a brainwashed idiot all you want, but I can say the same to anybody voting Ron Paul or Obama and I do!

How does electing someone honestly into a corrupt establishment help defeat the establishment??? I don't get it.

Romney did what no other democrat including Obama has been able to do and that is implement gov't mandated healthcare. How can he not be the best representative for the DNC, oops I mean GOP.


The big difference between Obama and Romney is that Obama believes in socialized healthcare but can't implement it, while Romney doesn't believe in socialized healthcare but successfully implement it.


The problem with you Romney trash talkers is that you are trying to make judgement on him based on what he has done. For the record he has numerous times opposed his own actions and then unopposed them back, so what is the problem? That says he is able to please everyone because at one time or another he told you what you want to hear. That is nothing like Obama, you see Obama has a 'D' label on his shirt and Romney has an 'R'. Why can't you guys get that, the man wears an 'R' on his t-shirt people?

And guess what? Mass is a 90% liberal state. It's a miracle he even got elected, but are you going to ignore that what Romney did was in fact a libertarian policy. Isn't that what Ron Paul always says, leave it to the states....

That is preciously why the the GOP is going to lose to Obama. You just admitted like most of the GOP loyalist that you would vote for RP if elected by the GOP. However, if the GOP selects Romney the RP supporters nor RP himself will support Romney, just like in the last election when Obama won and RP endorsed another party. Romney has the potential to lose a large chunk of the Republican base voters because he will not get the RP votes and the GOP can't afford to lose those votes against Obama.

If Romney needs the Paul supporters, how will that work the other way around? You see how Ron Paul cannot get elected now? You keep saying Romney cannot win without the Paul supporters, but it's actually the other way around, Ron Paul cannot win without the Romney supporters. And quite a few of them will never vote RP!

NO the reason Ron Paul is crazy is because of some of his very far left policies about war and drugs and other far right policies about segregation and religious overtones. Of course, some of his economic policies which will never pass and has never passed the majority of congress. Even though, Ron Paul continues to run on these failed policies for the past 30 years thinking that he is changing the world doing nothing! That's crazy!

I resemble that remark. I'm a little past baby boomer and still have all my faculties. A lot of us never drank the kool aid and have been waiting for decades for someone like Paul to come along.
