The Rightardian religious thought for the day

A moment of silence please! 

Christian conservatives held at The Awakening conference in Florida

Few said they would name Mitt Romney as their first choice for president. Many plan to vote for Mittens using a lesser of evils argument.

Matt Barber, vice president of Liberty Counsel Action, whose organization is a co-sponsor of the two-day conference said:

This is the most important election in our lifetime.

Rightardia would agree that the election is important. If Mitt Romney were to win, a corporate bean counter who lacks people skills would become president. Romney was not a successful governor of MA. He refused to work with the Democratic majority and vetoed 840 bills. of which more than 600 were overturned.

His favorability rating at the end of his term was 30 per cent and he was therefore unable to run for reelection. 

The MA voters were onto Mittens and when he ran against ted Kennedy for his senate job, and he was thrashed.

This is what Rightardia would expect if Mittens was elected president. 

1. The US would back Israel with military force in an attack on Iran. A regional  middle east war would ensue. Us foreign policy could be similar to that of GW Bush or Ronald Reagan: walk noisily and use a big stick whenever required.
2. Medicare and Social Security would be scaled back and privatized. Defense spending would increase. 
3. The National Labor relations Board and the Occupational Health and Safety Administration would be neutered
4. The Department of Interior would become pro-business and the Keystone XL Pipeline would be finished so oil could be shipped overseas from Port Arthur Texas. 
5. The Department of Housing and Urban Development would be scaled back an many people would be forced out of public housing to get minorities off of the plantation.  
6. Food stamps or SNAP would take a $ 30 billion hit. According to Mark Zandi of Moody's analytics, SNAP is the most effective of federal programs. 
7. The Bush tax cuts would continue with token 15 per cent cuts for the most affluent Americans. 

Outcome:  the economy would improve a while form the momentum built during the Obama administration and then slide back into recession
