I was listening to the news today and was shocked at what I was hearing. The glee from the Democrats who can smell blood from a thousand paces or more was obvious, as once again the GOP potential nominee, the I once was a moderate but now am a conservative, Mr Mitt Romney and his political advisors, seem to me to have shown a total lack of common sence and understanding of the constitution and the obvious hatred of conservatives all over this country to large government.
Rick Scott, the Governor of Florida, a very important swing state in this election, and a state where President Barack Hussein Obama leads in most polls, has been doing a great job of bringing real, full time, well paid jobs to the sunshine state. Since he came to office, replacing a wannabe Democrat, Liberal Charlie Crist, he has done what he promised. He has made Florida one of the go to states in the union for employers to move to and has created around 100,000 new and as I said, real jobs. These are jobs which have security, good pay and benifits, and not the sort of jobs touted by this Marxist and very sorry administration in the green sector, with very little in the way of security. Rick Scott, a Republican Governor, has done what he was elected to do and will continue to do, namely create real jobs.
Now, we move onto Mitt Romney, the presumptive GOP nominee for the 2012 election. He has been travelling the country talking about the total failure of this present administration in job creation.
Now, to me, the Federal Government should not be the one creating jobs. It may create an environment that makes it easier for job creation, but it should never be involved in actual job creation. It fails each and every time it get to choose winners and losers. Look at the nationalization of General Motors. Look at the car that Obama swore and viewed as the future of motoring in his perfect progressive view of an America I do not want to live in or be a part of, the Chevy Volt. What a disaster and huge waste of our hard earned tax dollars. Just look at the failures of the green environmental jobs that have been so readily backed with tax payers money since the election of Obama, and the billions of dollars lost as a result. There have been virtually no REAL green jobs created, although, with literary flair this administration, by calling all sorts of jobs green, like a bus driver who drives a hybrid bus, or a cleaner who cleans in a green factory, and counting those as green jobs. Even so, with all the chicanery that they can muster, unemployment is still, by their own corrupted figures, over 8%. Reality is that the real unemployment figure is actually not far shy of 20%.
I want to go back now to Mitt Romney. Apparently his camp has asked Governor Scott to stop touting his success in job creation, as it goes against the message he is trying to tell the American people, about how no new jobs are being created.
I have a suggestion for our liberal, whoops sorry, conservative now GOP presumptive noiminee, Mitt Romney. How about telling the American people the truth? Strange concept to politicians the world over, but just a suggestion. How about being proud that a State, being run by a fiscally aware Republican Governor, is doing what is the job and the work of governors in all 50 states, that is create jobs, boost the economy, and serve the population of the state better while not increasing taxes etc? It is happening in several well run Republican states, with little to absolutely no help from a Federal Government. Look at Wisconsin. He should be touting that job creation is best done at state level, with no interferance from this bloated, out of control, corrupt Federal Government. He should be shouting the success of Republicans all over the country who are succeeding where others have failed.
I say to Rick Scott, who has not always done everything I wanted, carry on Sir, Create more and more jobs. Make Florida that shining star that other States under democratic control only wish they could emmulate. Carry on working hard, every day, as you promised to bring Floridas overheads down, services improve, all the while by not increasing taxes. Make Florida the state that everyone wants to invest in because of a lack of restrictions and interferance from the government. Make Florida the go to place for all companies looking to relocate to a right to work state that is friendly and understanding to their needs.
I say to Mitt Romney, Sir, you are wrong. Be proud of what a Republican is doing in a Democrat State, despite all the obstacles and hatred shown to him by the left. Turn Florida into a Republican State by touting its success and not trying to hide them. That Sir, would be a positive message to tell the American people.
