Supports Romney for president

“The first role of government is to keep the American people safe” – Mitt Romney, Aug. 29I couldn’t agree more with this principle.

Keep us safe from financial crimes and fraud with the SEC; safe from organized crime with the FBI; safe from floods with the Army Corps of Engineers; safe from air, water, soil pollution with the EPA; safe from dangerous drugs and medical devices with the FDA; safe from contaminated food with the USDA; safe from dangerous roads and bridges with the Department of Transportation; and safe from poverty and massive medical expenses for the elderly through Social Security and Medicare, to name a few government agencies.

I look forward to Romney applying this principle to strengthen all of our institutions to keep Americans safe. Maybe Romney will expand Medicare for all based on this principle and his objection to a mandate to buy private medical insurance.

Best of all, according to Clint Eastwood, Romney will keep our soldiers safe by bringing them home from Afghanistan tomorrow. Romney represents hope and solidarity through strengthening the government institutions that care for the American people.

God bless America.
