MITT ROMNEY VS. ABRAHAM LINCOLN

In Uncategorized on September 24, 2012 at 12:02 am

On the surface, the 2012 Presidential race appears to be one of Republican Mitt Romney versus Democrat Barack Obama.

But, on a truly spiritual level, this is a race pitting Republican against Republican.

That is, the philosophy of Republican Mitt Romney pitted against the philosophy of Republican Abraham Lincoln.

Consider:

MITT ROMNEY: Well, there are 47% of the people who will vote for the President no matter what. All right? There are 47% who are with him. Who are dependent upon government, who believe that–that they are victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they’re entitled to healthcare, to food, to housing, to you name it. But that’s–it’s an entitlement.  And the government should give it to them.  And they will vote for this President no matter what.

And–and–I mean the President starts off with 48%, 49%, 40–or he….starts off with a huge number. These are people who pay no income tax. Forty-seven percent of Americans pay no income taxes. So our message of low taxes doesn’t connect. And he’ll be out there talking about tax cuts for the rich. I mean that’s what they sell every….four years.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN:  With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in.  To bind up the nation’s wounds.  To care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan.  To do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.

“Tell me whom you admire,” runs the old saying, “and I will tell you who you are.”  The candidate you vote for reveals as much about your own priorities as it does about those of the candidate.

On Election Day, we will discover the priorities of the American electorate.  Will they embrace the spirit of their greatest President–or that of their greediest Presidential candidate?
