Is Romney Unbeatable?

March 7, 2012

   Super Tuesday has come and gone and Mitt Romney did his best to portray himself as the inevitable triumphant victor of the party. Winning 6 of 10 states last night, including bellweathers Ohio and Virginia, Romney’s delegate count has now inched past 400, leaving Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich in the dust. At 176 and 105 respectively, both Santorum and Gingrich are now far behind Romney, the first time that Romney has solidly staked a claim at inevitability.

 

   So this begs the question, is Romney unstoppable now? He has approximately 700 more delegates to go, but everyone else needs 1000. Is there any way for either man to get to the required 1144 delegates? Absolutely! There are 1541 more delegates to be assigned with the biggest hauls coming from California (172), Texas (155), New York (94), Pennsylvania (71), Illinois (67) and Missouri (52). So there is no doubt that TECHNICALLY all four candidates COULD win the nomination. But of those big states I mentioned, Romney will run very competitive or win each and every one. Santorum will likely win Pennsylvania and Gingrich will be competitive in the south, but Romney with his war chest and superior organization will compete for almost every state. This makes his the far and ahead front runner.

 

   At this point, Romney is looking very confident and for good reason. He squeaked out a win in Ohio that three weeks ago he wasn’t even competitive. He is starting to consolidate the base. The only question is, can he pull in the amount required if Gingrich or Santorum drops out and the remaining candidate gets the other’s support? Time will tell. But An Informed Mind has his money on Romney.

Romney And The Left

March 6, 2012

My friends, I want to tell you one thing. The left just can’t figure out how to attack Romney best. First they say he’s a conservative businessman with too much wealth to be able to know what middle class Americans are struggling with. Then, to tailor their attacks, claim he is a moderate at best and cannot be trusted to be a conservative on fiscal or values positions. Unfortunately, Mitt Romney is not Ronald Reagan, nor is he William Buckley or any other conservative ideal. I wish he were more in line with my views. However, he is at least a fiscal conservative who will bring this country back from the brink that Hussein Obama has taken us to. Mitt Romney is, I believe the best, most competent and by far, the most likely to win against Obama and his cronies. Getting off topic a bit, it used to be that a candidate’s family was by and large off limits. A candidate’s wife, children, parents etc. were not to be attacked by either side as a show of respect and common courtesy, seeing as how the relatives were not running and therefore their thoughts, statements etc. were of little importance to the campaign as opposed to the actual candidate’s positions. However, liberals have taken to saying that Ann Romney’s statement that she doesn’t consider herself wealthy BECAUSE of her wealth is an indicator that the Romneys are out of touch and cannot fathom the difficulties ordinary Americans face. They are taking her completely out of context. What she actually said was that she considers herself wealthy, not because of her wealth, but because of her family and friends and loved ones. Most Americans, wealthy and not, would say the same. I am not wealthy, save for in the love and support I have of my parents, my siblings, my friends. In striving to bring down Romney, liberals have stooped to attacking the man’s wife, by all accounts and very nice person. I see nothing wrong with what Mrs. Romney said and I find her an excellent example of humility and grace in the midst of trials. And I find Mitt Romney a much better example of what a president should be, in that he does not focus on dividing the country, but on uniting. Surely The Left, which hailed Obama as the Great Uniter, He Who Would Cure All Ills, and The One, can get behind a man who has a plan to fix the economy and get Americans believing in America again, right? Unfortunately, The Left doesn’t want that! The Left instead wants Americans in bondage to Big Government. Mitt Romney therefore, is antithetical to The Left and must be defeated. I hope millions of Americans join with me tonight and strike a blow to The Left with a vote for Romney!


How’s Work?

August 30, 2010

Well I never in my wildest dreams would think that churches could use so many envelopes. In my 6 weeks with the company, I have probably shipped or have packaged to ship at a future date more than a quarter million boxes of envelopes. I’m in shipping and with only one other guy helping out, the work is stressful and tiring and hard… and I love it! It’s something to do with my time and I have a job, unlike millions of other Americans thanks to the job killing policies of ineptitude and uncertainty of Barack Hussein Obama.

Being gone from 6:15 in the morning until 4:15 in the afternoon I don’t have much time for this blog anymore, for which I apologize. I will see how it goes when I get more used to the hours. But even if I don’t post any more posts (which is unlikely) remember that An Informed Mind will always fight against big government, mainstream media, Islamofascism, etc. God Bless America!

PS: With the elections coming up, we need to remember how the Democratic Socialists of America treated the will of the people they were elected to serve, especially over health care. Stay strong Conservatives and Tea Party Patriots. We can reclaim this country for what the Founders intended. Let’s ‘THROW THE BUMS OUT’!


Finally in the Land of the Employed!

July 26, 2010

It’s official, after not months, but YEARS of searching for work in my rundown section of the country, I officially start work tomorrow at a Church supply company. Which one? Wouldn’t you like to know. In any case, the on the job training starts at 7 in the morning, but I couldn’t be happier. Even with the normal new job jitters I can thankfully say, ‘Praise God and hallelujah! I’ve got a job!’ Unfortunately this is something that nearly 10% of Americans cannot say thanks to the job and business killing policies of Barry Obama, the worst president in the history of the universe. Stay tuned for more.


More to come…

July 17, 2010

Hey everybody, just wanting to make sure that no one thinks I’ve abandoned the fight. No, it’s just been awfully busy lately. I fully intend on keeping up the fight against Obama and his health care, immigration, economic, social and justice positions. America needs strong conservatives to keep the fight going against the liberal and progressive ideologies of the day. God Bless America!


What Independence Day Means to Me

July 3, 2010

Independence Day is a day for cookouts, fireworks, time with family and friends. It’s time to go to the local park or other recreational facility. Right? Well for too many Americans that is all that it consists of. Sometimes the true meaning of the fourth of July is obscured by our many busy activities and doings.

The fourth of July means spending time thinking of those soldiers on far off battlefields that are being shot at. It means thanking God that there are many braver and more willing than I to leave family, friends and security of everyday life to water the tree of liberty. That there are those who, instead of pursuing a lucrative career in business, instead don the uniform of a grunt, a devil-dog, a sea-bee or a fly-boy and ensure the blessings of liberty to us and our posterity. They heeded the call of duty and answered, some to return, others to fall.

This day brings to mind the words of the song: “All gave some, some gave all. Some stood true for the red, white and blue, and some had to fall… If you ever think of me, think of all your liberties and recall, some gave all.” Truer words were never spoken. As some have noted, “It was not the poet who gave us freedom of speech, nor was it the reporter who gave us freedom of press, nor was it the reverend who gave us freedom of religion, but the soldier.” We can thank the soldiers who have given of themselves, sometimes paying with their lives to ensure that their sons and daughters would grow up in a country free from tyranny and oppression. From Bunker Hill and Lexington, to Philadelphia, to the beaches of Virginia and the hills of Appalachia, to the distant shores of Tripoli and the Mexican wilderness, to the beaches of Normandy and the Islands of the Pacific, to Inchon in Korea, to the rice paddies of Vietnam, to the island of Panama, to the sands of the Middle East and Afghanistan, to wherever next they be, we salute our boys and girls in uniform and thank them with the utmost degree of respect and adoration. We know that they are not perfect and have fear and apprehension of their situations, but we know also that they push on, showing their patriotism by their deeds and not simply their words. May God Bless our soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines on this fourth of July and give them strength, courage, and wisdom and may they come home safe and soon. God Bless America.


Sleep: The Importance of Our Underappreciated Activity

June 4, 2010

I have become ever more appreciative of sleep over the past couple days. While I cannot divulge the particulars, I can say that I have not been getting my required hours and my attention, wit and ability to work well has been affected. I have never been so thankful for the opportunity to get 8+ hours of sleep.

But, not only does sleep affect the sleeper, but it affects everyone around him/her as well. While it does seem easier to wake when one doesn’t enter the deep sleep mode, in the long run and over the course of a long day, never reaching deep sleep mode drains on you more even though waking is harder. (Unscientific research for sure, but my experience corroborates this.) Not only this, but once one reaches about 14 hours of no sleep, it is as if he hits a brick wall.

Which is what I reached about three hours ago. With not a speck of caffeinated coffee in the house and no other way to stay awake save for slapping myself with a backhand swat, I forge ahead, Q-tips propping open my drooping eyelids, my yawns ever more frequent. It’s a Friday night and I’m looking forward to the sleeping in that comes with each sweet Saturday morning.

With all that said, I can state that I think that a fitful and uneventful sleep is a blessing from God. Nothing can compare to waking on your own terms with a full Saturday ahead. Except maybe on an Fall day with college football to look forward to. But I digress.

Enough with my sleepy rambling… if I’m lucky I’ll be off to dreamland in the next hour and a half, but for now, I think I’ll rest my eyes a bit.
