Romney: I know some speakers, too

Romney: I know some speakers, too

There are 4 comments on the Concord Monitor story from Dec 22, 2011, titled Romney: I know some speakers, too. In it, Concord Monitor reports that:

Gingrich, former speaker of the U.S. House, made headlines yesterday with the official backing of current state House speakers Bill O'Brien of New Hampshire and Kraig Paulsen of Iowa, bagging two of the last big names to fall in the early voting states.

Rick Santorum: A Record of Betrayal
Santorum's income has soared since he left Senate

Romneys largest donor is Goldman-Sachs.
Ron Pauls? largest donor= US Military active duty soldiers.
Have to wonder what that means?

The Romney Con

Vote Ron Paul. He is the only decent, honest, and intelligent politician running. He is also the ONLY candidate that has his campaign funded by donations from the American people. Romney and everyone else are bought and paid for by corporations. How can they be for the people? Romney also lies and flip flops more than a fish out of water.

People that listen to the mainstream media are really missing out. Do your own research and use your own brain.
Ron Paul is the only logical choice.

If you do not believe that a vote for Mitt Romney is a vote for the New World Order, just consider Mitt Romney's positions on the issues....

#1 The Federal Reserve

To the financial elite, there is no more important financial institution in the United States than the Federal Reserve, and Mitt Romney is a huge supporter of the Federal Reserve.

During one Republican debate, Romney actually tried to explain to all of us why "we need to have a Fed".

Not only that, Mitt Romney has stated that he is not really concerned about what is going on over at the Federal Reserve. Mitt Romney has publicly stated that he is "not going to take my effort and focus on the Federal Reserve".

That kind of talk is music to the ears of the financial elite.

Also, Romney fully supported the reappointment of Ben Bernanke as the Chairman of the Federal Reserve despite his absolutely horrific track record.

#2 Money From The Bankers

Mitt Romney is getting far, far, far more money from Wall Street bankers than any other Republican candidate.

In a recent article entitled "The Big Wall Street Banks Are Already Trying To Buy The 2012 Election", I detailed how numbers compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics show that Mitt Romney is getting more money from the employees of the "too big to fail" Wall Street banks than all of the other Republican candidates combined.

The following is an excerpt from that article that shows how much money employees of those banks (and their spouses) gave to various candidates for president during the first 9 months of 2011....

Mitt Romney:$813,300
Barack Obama:$198,874
Tim Pawlenty:$101,515
Rick Perry:$58,900
Jon Huntsman:$28,250
Ron Paul:$13,104
Herman Cain:$2,715
Michelle Bachmann:$1,500
Newt Gingrich:$1,250

Even though Romney's poll numbers have been in the mid to low 20s most of the time, employees of the big Wall Street banks gave him $813,300 during the first 9 months of 2011 and they only gave $105,719 to the rest of the Republican candidates that were still in the race at the end of the third quarter combined.

#3 The Wall Street Bailouts

During the last financial crisis, Mitt Romney was a very enthusiastic supporter of the Wall Street bailouts.

Back in 2009, Romney delivered a speech in which he made the following statement about bailing out Wall Street....

"I know we didn't all agree on TARP. I believe that it was necessary to prevent a cascade of bank collapses. For free markets to work, there has to be a currency and a functioning financial system."
During the Wall Street bailouts, gigantic mountains of money were transferred from the pockets of U.S. taxpayers into the hands of greedy Wall Street bankers.

Wall Street would definitely like to have someone in the White House who will bail them out once again when the next great financial crisis strikes.

It really doesnt matter what they SAY they will do.
All politicians lie for political gain.
I have yet to meet a true leader that cares more about the people that he/she was elected to serve than their monetary masters that made sockpuppets of them.
This being said,PAUL is the ONLY choice and its a crying shame that we will wind up with a Republicrat.
