Why I would Vote for Romney...

Psalm 75: 6-7 For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south.  But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.

Someone has said that a definition of insanity is to keep repeating the same actions but expect to get different results. That statement could be applied to the current administration of the United States. How can anyone imagine that borrowing billions of dollars continually with no intentions of repaying that debt could lead to any good result??
As a Canadian I am watching the USA Presidential Elections campaign going on. I understand that my opinion about it has no bearing at all in the election itself but that doesn't mean that I cannot be interested. I watched the debate a couple nights ago. Mitt Romney definitely won that debate - no doubt about it! But who will the American people choose as their next President in November of this year?

Here in Canada we currently have a Conservative majority government with Stephen Harper as Prime Minister. I like that - it is good for our country. I support the Conservative Party in elections whenever I can.
I have heard American Christian preachers say that they cannot vote for Mitt Romney because he is a Mormon. In my opinion, in an election for President you are not choosing a God whom you will serve - You are choosing a President who is capable of leading the country.  Obama has proved his capabilities in the last four years. So the question is not who believes exactly as I do? or is the person running a Christian?  Of course we would prefer to have a Christian to be our Prime Minister or President but there are only two choices. So the question rather becomes - Who is the one that shares my moral values and lives with integrity and will move the country in the right direction? I think it is extremely concerning when a person claims to be a Christian but then denies Christ in his political decisions. If one does not claim to be a Christian at all, you must look at his backgound - Does he live with integrity and does he have good moral standards? Will he be able to guide the economy and stop the wasteful spending?
In the Canadian election process, you must vote for a candidate who represents one of the three main Parties( Conservative, Liberal or New Democratic Party)  and thereby the vote you cast is a vote for your local representative and also for the Party and Leader of that Party. So in the last election here in Canada, I voted for Vic Toews who represents the Conservative party in my region and so by voting for the Conservative candidate my vote also helped to elect Stephen Harper as Prime Minister. Personally I do not agree with Vic Toews because I am offended that he lived an immoral life and divorced his wife of many years. That being said I still voted for him because I knew Stephen Harper was the man who needed to be Prime Minister. He is a strong family man, he guides the economy well and is a friend to Israel and he is not afraid to stand his ground even if it is not politically popular.
In the same way, Mitt Romney may not be the perfect man in some ways but he most certainly has the country's best interests in his platform. He has experience in economic issues, he understands the risks of the government's spending problem, he is smart, also a good family man who sincerely loves his wife and family, he is a strong supporter of Israel and also not afraid to stand strong even against Obama ( as we saw in the debate).  Whereas it seems that Obama is bent on destroying the USA. I would fear for the people of the US if Obama got another 4 years as President. He seems weak and cowardly, he doesn't hesitate to increase the deficit, he does not stand strong with Israel, he is promoting Muslim Brotherhood takeovers, but he also loves his family though at the same time is trying to destroy the traditional family. He strongly promotes homosexuality and abortion. He says he is a Christian but does not stand for Christian values. I would rather vote for someone who says he is a Mormon and is honest about it as Romney is than for someone who says one thing but lives another.  There are only two choices - and the Obama choice is really not an option.
In my opinion, of course you also must look at their running mates. Paul Ryan's values and morals are far more in line with Biblical principles than Joe Biden's. If something were to happen to the President, would Biden be able to provide leadership required in a crisis or would Paul Ryan be more equipped to do so?

We must always remember that the final out come rests with God. God will put the man in office who will fulfill His preordained prophetic plan. God's timetable will not change and if the endtime prophecies and tribulation are about to begin, then God will put the man in the Whitehouse whom He has chosen to be in there for that appointed time. Trust in the Lord because He will  never fail you.
Psalm 146: 3-5 Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help. His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish. Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the Lord his God:


  1. Hi! I like your post.
    I would vote for Romney, too.
    USA in our prayers!

    1. @ HouseSparrow Varpunen - Hi It's good to hear from you again. God Bless you!
      Did you watch the debate last week? It was pretty clear Obama is a tired man.

    2. NorthernSparrow, thank you. God bless you & your family!

      No, I did not watch the debate, but I saw some parts of it. Obama seemed to be nervous and somehow confused. (I have read a few analysis about the debate, too. They said Romney won.)
      I can believe B.O. is a tired man.

    3. @Varpunen Thanks for commenting.
      John McTernan has some interesting analysis of the debate on his blog as to why Obama did so poorly.
      Also the Vice-Presidential debate is this week Thursday - it will be interesting to see how that one plays out.

    4. I have to read John McTernan's blog post right away. Thank you! :)

    5. @ Varpunen - The post by John McTernan that I am referring to is from October 5 titled "Obama's Debate and What He did to Israel!" I hope you are able to find it on his blog.
      God Bless.
