    Thank you, Mitt Romney, For Highlighting Issues 2 & 3.

    Issues 2 and 3 in Ohio have largely flown under the national radar. As we approach the Nov. 8th vote, the unions have waged expensive, brutal campaigns against the initiatives. Governor Kasich's reforms in Ohio are every bit as monumental as what Governor Walker achieved in Wisconsin earlier this year, and he has earned the support of fans of limited government across the country with this battle.

    Governor Romney is clearly not among the fans of limited government.

    Earlier today, he refused to offer his support for the Ohio reform agenda. Once again, when conservatives needed him to take a stand, he failed to come through. Maybe the polling wasn't strong enough. Maybe idea of a health care mandate being banned by Issue 3 was just too much for him. Who knows. The end result was that he was unable to offer any support for two important initiatives.

    Further complicating the situation was the fact that Governor Romney has previously offered his support for Governor Kasich's reforms.

    "My friends in Ohio are fighting to defend crucial reforms that the state has put in place to limit the power of union bosses and keep taxes low," Romney wrote on his Facebook page in June. "I stand with John R. Kasich and Ohio's leaders as they take on this important fight to get control of government spending. Please visit www.BetterOhio.org for more information."

    So what has changed? Nothing, really, except that now his support actually matters. With the vote is just two weeks away, he appears to have forgotten his previous stance and has reverted to mealy-mouthed Generic Republican. 

    Governor Kasich and Ohio need support, and now is Ohio's chance to win this fight. So thank you, Governor Romney, for displaying your lack of principle and pushing Issues 2 & 3 into the national spotlight.

    It amazes me there is any conservative that would even consider Mitt Romney, Rick Perry or Cain with the their Status Quo positions, continued support for big government and "Tax the people harder" goofy tax plans such as 9-9-9 and Flat tax or Fairtax that maintain present wasteful bureaucracies and programs; When it is these wasteful bureaucracies that need to be removed altogether.

    Ron Paul is the ONLY candidate with a true plan, a simple 11 point plan, that will actually reduce the tax burden on all of us. Ron Paul is the only candidate that any intelligent person would want to be president, as he is the only candidate actually that knows what he is doing; And that is because he actually follows the Constitution.... The newest form of free government that exists.
