Romney: Tobacco Pusher (9 October 2012) (using previously secret tobacco industry documents housed at the UCSF Legacy Tobacco Documents Library to show how, under Mitt Romney, Bain played a key role in helping British American Tobacco and Philip Morris invade Russia. This effort succeeded, leading to large increases in smoking, and smoking-induced disease, including such factors as abortions) (See news video, and Romney's pro-abortion statement issued 9 October 2012).
"GOP reviews turning negative on Romney's campaign" (2 October 2012) ("the early autumn Republican reviews are in for Mitt Romney's presidential campaign, and they are not pretty. In some states, candidates who share the Nov. 6 ballot with the former Massachusetts governor already have taken steps to establish independence from him. Party strategists predict more will follow, perhaps as soon as next week, unless Romney can dispel fears that he is headed for defeat.")
"Mitt Romney accused of supporting Chinese sweatshop labor" (28 September 2012) ("A report released Thursday from the Institute for Global Labour and Human Rights investigated the dismal conditions at the Global-Tech factory in Dongguan, China, now known as the sweatshop that operated through investments from Mitt Romney's Bain Capital and its affiliate companies, Brookside and Sankaty from the 1990s to the present day. The report accuses Romney and his companies of being complicit, if not responsible, for perpetuating slave labor at the factory.")
"Poll: 47% video hurts Romney with Independents" (19 September 2012) (Romney as an atheist knowingly lies, saying "economic success does not work by a government saying, 'Become dependent upon government.'" The government never says that. The economic system Romney espouses is atheist economics, the opposite of Bible Economics.
"SECRET VIDEO: Romney Tells Millionaire Donors What He REALLY Thinks of Obama Voters" (17 September 2012) ("When he doesn't know a camera's rolling, the GOP candidate shows his disdain for half of America." Romney's contempt for America and the non-super-rich comes through. The 1913 income tax was intended to tax only what are now called "the 1%" -- people making over $300,000 - $400,000 ). See also Prof. Adam Howard, "Unlearning the Lessons of Privilege," Teaching Social Responsibility, Vol. 66(#8), May 2009) (has example of contempt of the affluent capitalist class for non-members of same).

After the primary campaign, Fehrnstrom argued, 'everything changes,' and he added: “It’s almost like an Etch a Sketch. You can kind of shake it up and we start all over again.'”)

"Paul Ryan’s Vicious Budget: Right In Your Face, America" (17 August 2012) ("since his youth [Paul Rand] has been a disciple of the militant Russian atheist Ayn Rand who despised altruism and “love thy neighbor” values while edifying extreme selfishness and greed." Ryan ignores basic economic facts such as if taxes were like they were before Reagan's vicious attack on the Middle Class, there'd be no deficit. Billionaires have hidden $20 TRILLION - 32 TRILLION in off-shore accounts. IRS tries to locate billionaire's secret loot, but unlike us in the Middle Class, we don't have $700 an hour lawyers and accountants to hide our loot in off-shore accounts, and stall collection on and on. We bank locally, don't know any overseas bankers! And our taxes are typically automatically withheld! And IRS gets a copy of the W-2 or 1099! No hiding anything for us little people! Ryan knows this, but he's for the billionaires, not for us! So he wants to cut us down, further destroy the Middle Class. He's a Middle Ages monarchist, for the nobility against us peasants and serfs.
Add It Up: Taxes Avoided by the Rich Could Pay Off the Deficit" (27 August 2012). ("1. Individual and small business tax avoidance costs us $450 billion. . . . 2. Corporate tax avoidance is between $250 billion and $500 billion. . . . 3. Tax haven losses range from $337 billion to $500 billion. . . . 4. That's enough to pay off a trillion dollar deficit.")
"To claim that there is no difference between honest people and liars is intellectually dishonest. The conservative movement . . . would like to confuse you into believing that there is no such thing as an honest person. That everyone is a liar. This is to protect their candidate, who is actually a liar, and his running mate, who is also a liar. The mass email [to do this] must've come out just the other day because stories just started exploding to erase this moral line."

"Blood Money: Romney Started Bain Capital With Money From Families Tied To Death Squads" (Wednesday, 8 August 2012) ("The death squads committed atrocities on such a mass scale for so small a country that their killing spree sparked international condemnation. From 1979 to 1992, some 75,000 people were killed in the Salvadoran civil war, according to the United Nations. In 1982, two years before Romney began raising money from the oligarchs, El Salvador's independent Human Rights Commission reported that, of the 35,000 civilians killed, "most" died at the hands of death squads.")
"The Calculation Behind Romney's Lies" (8 August 2012) ("The Romney campaign has turned to a strategy of swamping the public with flat-out, blatant lies, one after another, again and again, endlessly and lavishly repeated. They do this because they are making a calculation that it will work! So what is going on? And can [America] survive this assault? . . . Here is how it works. Each lie is developed in the right's machine, using something currently in the news to reinforce an ongoing narrative about 'liberals.' The lie percolates up through a well-worn process where the germ of the story is planted in smaller outlets, and variations of it are tried out until one seems to resonate. Next, larger right-wing media operations pick up the developed 'story' and drive it further. It gets amplified on the radio, FOX News and the right's newspapers. Finally the corporate media takes it out to more and more people, covering themselves with the claim they are just 'reporting' on a 'story' that is 'already out there.'")
"Romney gets caught lying about Obama, military voters" (6 August 2012) "voting rights in Ohio have been a mess in recent cycles, and new voter-suppression tactics imposed by state Republican lawmakers are inviting "chaos" at the polls this fall. Of particular interest is a state policy that restricts early-voting rights: active-duty troops can vote up to three days before Election Day, but no one else. To that end, President Obama's campaign filed a lawsuit a few weeks ago, asking a federal court to 'restore in-person early voting for all Ohioans during the three days prior to Election Day.' .... After spending the last several months paying attention to Mitt Romney's habitual dishonesty at a granular level, I've become largely inured to his more routine, casual lies. Some of the deliberate falsehoods are just too common to get upset about. But once in a while, Romney tells a lie so blatant and offensive that it raises questions anew about the candidate's character and what standards of decency he's prepared to abandon to advance his ambitions.... Got that? Obama wants all eligible Ohio voters, including servicemen and women, to have the same ability to vote, which Romney says, in writing, means Obama is trying to 'undermine' the troops' ability to vote. This is as loathsome a lie as Romney has told all year -- and given his record, that's not an easy threshold to meet."
"With Embrace of Israeli Socialized Medicine, Romney Completes Rare 'Full Monty' Of Health Care Positions" (30 July 2012) (since he has a record of supporting all the various health-care positions from time to time, "is it the case that Romney has no fixed position on health care, allowing him to shamelessly pander to whatever crowd he is in front of?" "At yesterday's Jerusalem fundraiser, Mitt Romney praised Israel's single-payer, government-run health care system as better than America's. . . . This has always been the argument for single-payer: that the experience of other countries proves that single-payer systems save money while covering more people.")
Willard ("Mitt") Romney has a long record of holding standard Republican conservative views on abortion. See "Romney Invested in Medical-Waste Firm That Disposed of Aborted Fetuses, Government Documents Show" (Monday, 2 July 2012). He "had been part of an investment group that invested $75 million in Stericycle, a medical-waste disposal firm that has been attacked by anti-abortion groups for disposing aborted fetuses collected from family planning clinics." Romney's pro-abortion activism paid off handsomely, reaping "tens of millions of dollars in profits for Romney and his partners."

"Mitt Romney and the Anglo-Saxon Vote" ("suggesting President Romney would restore the special relationship between the U.S. and U.K., based on a shared 'Anglo-Saxon heritage' . . . the wave of Voter ID laws that have passed in several states . . . probably stem from deep-seated white anxiety and outright panic over the political implications of America's changing demographics, these laws have the potential to disenfranchise thousands of voters in 2012, especially low-income and minority voters. Mitt Romney likes voter ID laws. People who don't like Black people like voter ID laws.")
"Oh, Mitt: those Romney gaffes in full" ("Boobs, blunders, clangers – whatever you call them, Romney likes to drop them. And he's really outdone himself in London")
"Romney in London: the Gaffe and the Graft ("the real deal isn’t the gaffe, it’s the graft. Follow the money, not the mumbling. Romney trots off to London and spends Thursday night in a high-dollar fund-raiser hosted by Barclays Bank officials. Bob Diamond, the disgraced former CEO of Barclays, withdrew as the event’s host only when he became implicated in the investigation on how Barclays conspired with other banks to rig the LIBOR rate, thereby shafting credit card holders, car owners with auto loans, and millions of other investors and borrowers. But the event went on, apparently raising a couple million dollars for the Romney campaign. Patrick Durkin, Washington lobbyist for Barclays, remained a co-host and has raised $1.1 million for the Romney campaign.")
"How Secret Foreign Money Could Infiltrate US Elections" (8 August 2012) ("Federal law prohibits a penny of that foreign money from being spent on politics. But it's not hard to dodge that ban, says Marcus Owens, a tax law attorney who ran the IRS division that oversees tax-exempt groups. Owens offered this hypothetical scenario: Say a Chinese businessman wants to funnel $10 million to a nonprofit that runs anti-Obama ads. For a few hundred dollars, that donor—or his attorney—can create a Delaware shell corporation that can funnel the $10 million to the nonprofit. And when the nonprofit discloses its donors to the IRS (as the law requires), all the taxman sees on the donor line is the shell corporation. Owens says it's not IRS policy to figure out who's behind a particular shell corporation. What's more, the IRS' audit rate for tax-exempt nonprofits is less than 1 percent. "There are a lot of ways that IRS filings can avoid disclosure of the actual source of funds," he says.")

|Such psychiatric data answers the question, “Why Are Right-Wing Politicians So Smug?” by Ann Davidow (16 April 2010).
So does the article "The GOP's Disastrous Ideas Why Brazil, India, and China will be thrilled if Republicans win the midterms," by Eliot Spitzer (12 October 2010): "'There you go again.' Those now-famous words pretty much sealed the deal in the Ronald Reagan-Jimmy Carter debate in 1980 and proved what we have seen over and over: In politics, charm and wit usually count more than facts and logic. After Reagan's victory, we set out on a path of deregulation and tax cuts, a 30-year run on borrowed money and borrowed time that ended horribly in 2008. We know now where we stand in terms of what matters: a jobs crisis, declining middle-class incomes, structural federal budget deficits, trade deficits, and on and on. . . . We had better face up to a stark and uncomfortable reality: The clock is running out on our status as the world's dominant political and economic power. Platitudes, make believe, and hoping it will be so are not going to carry us any further. We have three weeks to make this choice. Because if we end up with a [Republican] Congress and a [thereby crippled Obama] White House that fail to re-chart our course over the next two years, it is clear who the winner will be. It will not be the person sworn in as president in 2013. It will be China, Brazil, and India. They are loving every minute of this."
Many people are doing a great job explaining conservatives' errors to conservatives, but . . . to no avail. Why? Having a "sound mind" is a gift, 2 Timothy 1:7, and conservatives disproportionately lack it. The Bible says to not “cast pearls before swine,” Matthew 7:6.
It's good advice — not to even try, with some people. They are hopelessly lost, damned, predestined so. See Romans 8:29-30, cf. Ephesians 1:5 and 1:11.
People trying to help conservatives get a grasp on reality generally write well, and would persuade the save-able, but it's hopeless with the predestined lost. You can't overrule God's will in that regard.
This should be especially clear with conservatives who support ultra evils such as war and torture, in ultra violation of multiple Bible commandments of God, http://medicolegal.tripod.com/warisasin.htm
Such pro-war conservative people are predestined to such rebellion against God's way, that's how God could predict wars !!! :) so far in advance.
