Romney Tries To Buy Iowa Votes

The mainstream media has already begun to write the story that an east coast liberal from Massachusetts, Mitt Romney, is going to win the Iowa Straw Poll.

The liberal media views Romney’s victory in Iowa as inevitable because Mitt Romney spent millions of dollars on television in Iowa, vastly more than any other candidate. Unfortunately, the liberal media is probably right.

But, it is about to get much worse.

Mitt Romney is actually paying some of our conservative friends to support him in the straw poll and to convince us to support Romney despite his liberal record as Governor of Massachusetts.

Romney is paying ‘Get Out the Vote’ consultants to try convince us that he is a real conservative.

These consultants have been paid anywhere from $500 to $10,000 per month to talk to us.

Some of these ‘consultants’ are friends of ours. It is hard to blame them for accepting the money. However, just because he is paying our friends does not mean that our votes are for sale.

It is time to stand up and say plainly, Iowa Values are Not for Sale.

Please watch this short video to learn more about how Mitt Romney is trying to buy Iowa Values.

Please click here to sign the “Iowa Values, Not for Sale” petition.

It just isn’t right. Mitt Romney isn’t a conservative. He is a liberal from Massachusetts who ran as pro-choice, pro-gay rights, anti-gun, pro-tax, liberal that distanced himself from Ronald Reagan.

Simply put, Iowan Values are Not for Sale.

The individuals listed below have received the dollar amounts indicated from the Romney for President Campaign for ‘consulting’.

Prior to coming to Iowa Mitt Romney was Governor of Massachusetts. This is what he had to say, in his own words, to Massachusetts voters when he was running for office in Massachusetts:

Romney opposed the administration of Reagan/Bush in 1992
“I don’t want to return to the days of Reagan/Bush. I was an independent in the time of Reagan Bush!”
http://youtube.com/watch?v=a9IJUkYUbvI&mode=related&search=



Romney supported abortion rights in 2002:

“I will preserve and protect a woman’s right to choose.” http://youtube.com/watch?v=P_w9pquznG4


Romney supported tough gun-control laws in 2002:

“I support them (tough gun control laws). I won’t chip away at them. I believe they help protect us and provide for our safety.”
http://youtube.com/watch?v=Kk1bJOpYUqE


Romney signed taxpayer funded abortion bill in 2006:

Now he comes to Iowa and purchases television ads telling us how conservative he is, pays large sums of money to leading Iowa ‘family values’ leaders – despite running for office in Massachusetts as a liberal.

Please join conservatives across Iowa in signing the “Iowa Values, Not for Sale” petition by clicking here.

Please make sure to indicate your full name, city, and telephone number so that we may get in touch with you about how to stop a liberal from Massachusetts from purchasing our conservative values.

Sam Brownback, Mike Huckabee, Tom Tancredo, and other candidates are good conservatives that deserve the support of Iowans. We cannot let a rich liberal from Massachusetts buy our votes. Let’s make sure the rest of the Nation knows that Iowa Values are Not for Sale.

We Iowans are smarter than that.

Please click here to sign the “Iowa Values, Not for Sale” petition of grassroots conservatives.

Thank you for standing up for Iowan Values.

Well done, well said, and great video. Keep standing up for true conservatives and real Iowans.

rk said...

Out yourself, anonomous blogger. If you have no qualms posting all those names of people on your blog, we should at least know your name and which campaign is paying you to do this.

My guess would be you are a Brownback supporter. His campaign is all about negative and dirty politics.

Representative Cynthia McKinney said...

I'm proudly supporting Governor Romney.

Mac Reynolds said...

Romney gets my vote. He is honest, intelligent, and has good values. Shame on the candidates who keep trying to pull this election into the mud with deceptive and ugly slander. It only makes me feel that much more comfortable voting for the one candidate who refuses to play dirty. While Brownback and others fanatacize about ways to tear Romney and others down, Romney continues to disregard their rhetoric and focus on running a positive, promising campaign.
