Romney Is No Friend To The Free-Market

Written by | February 6th, 2012

As those of us on the right have long known, a free-market economy, free of incessant Government intervention, is a hallmark of Conservatism in American politics. And, amid the skepticism, in regards to Romney’s sincerity on Conservative politics, and Limited Government, he recently made two statements that were very telling:

1. “My view is to allow the minimum wage to rise with the CPI (basically, a measurement of inflation), or with another index…” (video)

2. “I’m not concerned about the very poor, we have a safety net there. If it needs repair, I’ll fix it.” (video)

Allow the minimum wage to rise? Keep up with inflation? Repair the (Federal) safety-net?

Minimum wage, while on the surface, may seem compassionate, it is actually a policy that keeps the skilled-workers working, and freezes out the less-skilled, and first-time workers. And, Inflation is caused by the incessant printing of money by The Federal Reserve, which devalues our currency, and causes all goods and services to rise in cost. Therefore, if I am not mistaken, Mitt Romney is basically suggesting that, under his Presidency, inflation, the minimum wage, and the welfare state, are here to stay, and will be tweaked, and adjusted, by the Technocratic Manipulators in his Administration!

So, while Mitt and friends, continue to print monopoly money, and prices continue to rise – some of us, who are fortunate enough to be employed, as the minimum wage increases, will be employed, and the rest of society will survive by living in the demoralizing world of food stamps and welfare?

Minimum wage, inflation, and the Federal safety-net, are all a creation of BIG GOVERNMENT; and, over the years, has been protected, and maintained, by a Federal Government that has long forsaken, and far exceeded, it’s Constitutional Limits! All three go against the very principles of a Free-Market economy; all three add up to tax increases; and, all three fly right in the face of Conservative economic policy in The United States! Mitt Romney, not only is no friend to The Free-Market, but, he is most certainly not a friend to The United States Constitution!

Romney’s remarks only confirm, and underscore, the fact that, just because one is a successful businessman, it doesn’t mean they understand how a free-market economy is suppose to function.

I, therefore, stand by my belief that, we are not in need of a successful businessman in The White House, but, rather, a person who understands The Constitution, and will work to return us to our Constitutional Foundation!

    Romney is just Obama and other big government types wrapped up in a faux conversative cloak. MSM has convinced many Americans that to get rid of Obama, they need to elect Romney as the Republican nominee. But Romney is not conservative and he believes in Keynesian Economics just like the majority of politicians in DC. Until we get someone who can get us back to money back by something like gold and quit printing all this money that is nothing but useless paper, our economy will only get worse and worse. The middle class and poor will only get poorer and the wealthy will only get richer. Also, Romney will not reduce the size of government which is the other part that needs to be fixed. Thanks for the article, it was well written and informative. I just wish there was some way to get people to open their eyes to the way our country is headed.

    Thanks Jackie! You are exactly right! Ron Paul is the only candidate in The GOP race that is even close to Constitutional, and for a Limited Government. I would have loved to see someone like Jim DeMint in the race, as well.

    I’d like to see Ron Paul get in there also, but I think we both know the reality which is that the powers that be in Washington will never allow a true liberatarian in the position as POTUS. I believe they would do whatever it took to keep them out. There are too many power brokers in Washington pulling all the strings. I’d like to think I’m wrong, but my gut tells me I’m right.

    Unfortunately, I think you are right Jackie! BIG GOVERNMENT, and their bribing, cheating, and stealing powers, are so entrenched in Washington D.C. that, it would take more then a mere election, to get a truly LIMITED GOVERNMENT type person in The White House. They will do anything to prevent that from happening!
