Why would a die hard conservative or a hard-headed libertarian finally decide to support Mitt Romney for the U.S. Presidency in 2012?

To answer such a question it is necessary to recognize that the 2012 election is the end of the world as we know it if Barack Obama manages to get re-elected. The much-ballyhooed "Mayan Prophecy" supposedly predicts cataclysmic changes on December 21, 2012, some believe a world-wide apocalypse caused by solar flares.

But maybe the "solar" is Barack Obama's Leo energy (Leo is ruled by the Sun), and the "flares" are Obama's programs and directives. ObamaCare alone is destined to bankrupt the United States, and ObamaCare is not half of what Obama will set into motion if he wins re-election. Maybe something triggering catastrophe really will happen on December 21, 2012, perhaps behind the scenes in Washington D.C. But maybe such an event will be made possible by the results on election day, November 6, 2012.

America will no longer be America if Barack Obama wins re-election. Poverty and chaos will become so wide-spread that liberal-progressive (fascist) dictatorship will be imagined to be justifiable. The right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness will disappear.

If conservatives hope to conserve a common sense America, if libertarians hope to keep alive the future possibility of political liberty, Barack Obama must lose the 1012 election, and hopefully lose big.

So the first and foremost question for conservatives and libertarians is: Who can beat Barack Obama? Which of the possible challengers can realistically win the election? Because if Obama wins, everyone loses.

In a previous post, we wrote about not supporting any candidate who would fire up the Democratic base. That principle eliminates an easy-for-Democrats-to-hate conservative woman like Michele Bachmann or Sarah Palin. And nobody ignites Democrat angst more than a Social Security enemy with Bush's Texas accent, so Rick Perry as a candidate would simply reinvigorate Obama's coalition and assure his re-election.

That seems to leave Mitt Romney.

Is Romney conservative enough for conservatives to support? Although he signed RomneyCare when a fix was needed to a severe problem in his state and he had no choice but to work with a Democratic legislature, Romney is certainly no liberal-progressive. He has shown himself to be evermore conservative through the years.

But is Romney teachable enough for libertarians to support? Well, clearly he has shown the willingness to change his mind when confronted with new information or a new way of seeing things. The Democratic-Media Complex last time around successfully painted Romney as a "flip-flopper." A more objective assessment would be that Romney is open-minded. If he were to be elected, he would certainly be willing to sit down with libertarians and listen ... and be taught.

It would seem that Mitt Romney is the best bet for saving America.

To really understand the evil psychology of modern "liberal progressives," read Ayn Rand's entire novel "Atlas Shrugged"

"God's laws will keep your minds at peace, because peace IS His Will, and His laws are established to uphold it. His are the laws of freedom, but yours are the laws of bondage. Since freedom and bondage are irreconcilable, their laws CANNOT BE UNDERSTOOD TOGETHER. The laws of God work only for your good, and there ARE no other laws beside His. Everything else is merely lawLESS, and therefore chaotic." -Jesus Christ in A Course in Miracles
