NUGENT: ‘I endorse Mitt Romney’
Governor best choice for White House
After much soul-searching and due diligent research, I endorse Gov. Mitt Romney to be the GOP nominee for president because I believe he is the best man to chart a course for renewed American prosperity.
I respect, admire and applaud all four candidates, but endorse Mitt.
Good government always begins with good people. Mr. Romney is a good man, a self-made man, an independent man, a smart man. My kind of guy, a real all-American Motor City Madman sans ponytail.
We live in brutal economic times. Tough times require tough people willing to make even tougher decisions. I support only tough, creative, smart and bold people, and Mr. Romney is just the man America needs right now for these turbulent times and even tougher times in front of us.
Too many Americans are unemployed and underemployed. Putting America back to work and restoring America’s economy is job No. 1. Mr. Romney has the hands-on private-sector experience that is critical to understanding how to ignite our economy and put Americans back to work. President Obama has no private-sector experience, and we have a stagnant, sinking economy to prove it.
Mr. Romney knows that one of the key economic anchors drowning our economy is that we have too much government that consumes too much of our gross domestic product. He knows the path to prosperity is not lined with more government, more bureaucracy, more borrowing and spending, more mountains of unsustainable debt, and more fiscal insanity such as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which, amazingly, are still making bad loans.
He understands the way forward is not more of the same disastrous policies and tremendously expensive programs that have pushed America to the brink of economic collapse. Under a Romney presidency, America will chart a much different course that begins with much less spending, lower taxes and more accountability.
Mr. Romney understands how the voluminous stacks of burdensome federal government regulations are suffocating the free market. Bureaucratic, anti-job regulations will become extinct immediately when Mr. Romney becomes President Romney. The days of irresponsible, costly, unaccountable government will soon be a thing of the past.
Restoring basic fiscal sanity in a system that is addicted to irresponsible spending begins with banning earmarks across the board. Mr. Romney will work to get the president line-item veto power and work to get a balanced-budget amendment.
Businesses once again will feel secure in investing and expanding their operations with a pro-business Romney administration. If you want a job and a brighter future, Mr. Romney is clearly the best choice to occupy the White House.
While becoming energy-independent is difficult and will take time, President Romney will begin this journey by implementing a pragmatic energy policy that includes nuclear power, the Keystone XL pipeline, more offshore drilling, and other real energy innovation and research and development.
As a tried-and-true conservationist, I know a President Romney will place the interests of the hunting and fishing community first and foremost over the current animal rights terrorists infesting our government agencies. There will be zero pandering or tolerance of radical, leftist, clown-brigade environmentalists in a Romney White House.
Mr. Romney is strong on national defense. Though a peaceful man, he knows that lasting peace is ultimately achieved through a position of strength. There will be no timetables for withdrawing our warriors from the battlefield - only timetables for victory, which will be established by our warriors.
There will be no apologizing for America to the international community by a President Romney, only praise for our freedom, our warriors, our culture and our values. America once again will be respected on the international stage with President Romney at the helm.
During my heart-to-heart talk with the good governor, I became convinced that he better understands the inescapable truism of a God-given individual right to keep and bear arms. No reinterpretation necessary.
