I am officially on the Mitt Romney for President bandwagon. For the first time since Ronald Reagan, we have a candidate who is explicitly campaigning on the principles of free enterprise and economic freedom, something that has been sorely missing from Republican leadership since Reagan left the White House.

At the end of the day, our nation’s greatness is made possible by the freedoms that we are guaranteed by our Declaration of Independence, Constitution and Bill of Rights. For someone like Newt Gingrich to criticize Mitt Romney for engaging in free enterprise is not only weak, but morally bankrupt; he should be ashamed.

For the sake of our great nation, I hope and pray that Gingrich flames out soon – if he is our nominee, when it comes to the fundamentals of our foundational freedoms, how is he different than Barack Obama?

One thing for sure, this isn’t over by a long shot.

    I’ll believe Mitt Romney is advocating for free enterprise when I hear him call to have the FDIC abolished.

    I don’t know.

    Mitt Romney is our Al Gore: Competent and profoundly uninspiring. I just cannot see him winning against Obama.

    I keep thinking back to Nixon in ’68… …would he have won if we hadn’t run Goldwater in ’64? (I honestly don’t know.) At least Goldwater got the right issues onto the table for a time. (A gross oversimplification of a complex period and series of events.)

    The middle ground is being pulled unrelentingly to the left. Ron Paul, even if unelectable, might at least pull the discussion back to fundamental principals now being neglected.

    I would be sincerely interested in your thoughts, please.
