To The Editor:
For all Mr. Romney’s fans, I have some questions.
But before I even ask my questions, read Romney’s speeches, especially what he offered during the Republican discussion sessions on TV in the run-up for the Republican presidential candidate selection. Then listen to his ads.
What groups are being solicited by him?
What did he have to say to convince a majority of Massachusetts voters to vote him into office? Mind you, he had to persuade enough liberals and moderates as well as the “base.”
Which of those positions he supported then does he continue to support, without qualification? Are there any?
Why has he chosen to deposit his monies in off-shore accounts and continues to refuse to release his IRS tax submissions in toto for the past decade or five? You know he is hiding something. I know he is hiding something. We all know he is hiding something.
These questions have nothing to do with a political persuasion, though I have one. It is not what anyone would immediately think.
If we as individuals are to remain safe in our homes, our work places, and our commons, then we must push each and all of us to seriously think and consider what we want from our candidates, what views they have, and what methods they will use to achieve those goals.
If we merely accept speeches and sound bites without reflection, we doom ourselves.
Thinking is difficult. Reactions are easy. If you doubt me about reactions there are a dozen or so perpetual Disqus responders who are eager to confirm what I say at http://www.gloucestertimes.com/.
We could apply the same standard to Mr. Brown. but some would consider it a cheap shop, albeit warranted.
