Horses and Bayonets



I followed 2 of the 3 debates in the U.S. and I anticipate that I am not Republican neither Democrat, I am not even American. But these parts, together, cannot be accepted in my opinion by any intelligent person. They are just contradictory each others. Read them carefully, I highlighted what I think are these parts.

MR. ROMNEY: “Well, I — I absolutely believe that America has a — a responsibility and the privilege of helping defend freedom and promote the principles that — that make the world more peaceful. And those principles include human rights, human dignity, free enterprise, freedom of expression, elections, because when there are elections, people tend to vote for peace. They don’t vote for war. So we want to — to promote those principles around the world. We recognize that there are places of conflict in the world. We want to end those conflicts to the extent humanly possible. But in order to be able to fulfill our role in the world, America must be strong. America must lead.“

MR. ROMNEY: “And our military — we’ve got to strengthen our military long- term. We don’t know what the world is going to throw at us down the road. We — we make decisions today in a military that — that will confront challenges we can’t imagine.”

MR. ROMNEY: “By the way, number one I get rid of is “Obamacare.” There are a number of things that sound good but, frankly, we just can’t afford them.”

MR. ROMNEY: “Our Navy is smaller now than at any time since 1917. The Navy said they needed 313 ships to carry out their mission. We’re now at under 285. We’re headed down to the low 200s if we go through a sequestration. That’s unacceptable to me.”

MR. ROMNEY: “But I love teachers. But I want to get our private sector growing, and I know how to do it.”

MR. ROMNEY: “I want to see peace, I want to see growing peace in this country.”

It is a shame that some (a lot?) of people still think that freedom needs weapons; freedom needs great people with great mind, Romney just doesn’t seem one of them.

MR. Romney reminds me about MR. Berlusconi, another one that came from the private sector, who knew how to make the right calculations and how to administrate a company. MR. Berlusconi also was in favour of private sector and private school. We know how it went, the worst crisis for Italy, the highest corruption rate and the lowest credibility of my Country all over the world. What a shame!
