Why Muriel Taylor will vote for Mitt Romney

Muriel Taylor has deep reasons for voting for Mitt Romney for president. Taylor was in a group of women supporting Romney when I asked them for reasons for their support. Taylor wrote down her reasons, which resonated strongly with me.

Taylor said, “I am voting for Mitt Romney because I love my country. I believe the freedom that I cherish is being eroded by the ever encroaching arm of the federal government. It has become a giant octopus with tentacles that search for every way possible to feed itself off the labors of the people and to crush the life out of them by all its rules and regulations.”

This rang true with President Barack Obama’s whacks at religious freedom and increasing regulations on small businesses. These have got to stop.

Taylor continued by saying, “The staggering national debt is just one of the many things that is wrong with the present administration.

Happy New Year

As 2011 comes to a close, I’ll be among those celebrating and rejoicing its departure and welcoming in 2012. While 2011 had much to offer, it also brought challenges I hope aren’t repeated in 2012. Despite my personal challenges, however, I am grateful. It’s a privilege and a blessing to live in the United States of America in my community and my neighborhood.

Hope, that’s the operative word here. I have hope. I hope we as a human race make better choices than we did in 2011. I hope we are more Christlike and more humane. I hope we select better leaders for our country and that leaders choose paths to freedom and strength.

Let’t make 2012 much better than 2011! Happy New Year!
