The Romney Health Care Solution

You have to wonder if deep in Mitt Romney's subconscious he knows that he is in way over his head. It would be one thing if he willfully engaged in self sabotage but, I don't think so. I honestly believe that he says what he means and means what he says. But, I also believe that every now and then his simmering insecurity bubbles to the surface and manifests itself in one idiotic statement after another. Of course this is just my theory, and my attempt to make sense of his nonsense.
On 60 Minutes this past Sunday Romney said that people without health insurance can use emergency room health care. In other words if you have a heart attack which you may or may not survive, you can just go to the emergency room instead of making regular visits to a physician to treat the condition that put you in the E.R. In the first place. The down side is the fact that in most cases people who don't have health insurance, don't have jobs. So they are now stuck with a medical bill which they are unable to pay.
Governor Romney knows that this is wrong because, he said so. Two years ago when he appeared on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" Romney stated that using the E.R. as an alternative form of health insurance is unfair because tax payers will have to pick up the bill when the uninsured cannot afford to pay it. Yet another contradiction, from a man doesn't seem to know whether he is coming or going.
Ever since President Obama made his statement regarding same sex marriage, the Black community has been divided. There are those who are making the choice not to vote because of President Obama's failure to condemn gay marriage, and then there are those who are willing to overlook his statement and vote for the greater good of our country. As American citizens, everybody has the right to their own opinions. But I just don't understand how any politically astute person could make a decision that could adversely affect their future for years to come based on one piece of the puzzle. Many of us have chosen to cloak ourselves in morality, and religion. Making a pious stance based on what we believe. But there is a much broader scope. God has given each and every one of us a mind with which we should be able to analyze, recognize, and weigh the pro's and con's so that when we make life decisions we can make the best possible choices. The only perfect choice that we can make is accepting Jesus Christ. All others require critical thinking. In other words, a republican president is going to do far more damage to the quality of our lives than a democratic President who is in favor of gay marriage.
This is the last time I will right about Mitt Romney. Those that get it will help this country move forward, and those who don't will learn the hard way.
