Excellent post Wendy! I agree 100%. We live in a sinful world where "perfect" doesn't exist. Most will agree that Romney and Obama are not equally evil, but that Obama has actively worked to destroy Christian values in the name of politics. We are called by our faith to follow the LIGHT and turn away from the darkness. The road is jagged, but we must make the best choice (from the choices available) towards that which is MOST in line with God's will as you stated.

We have the power to defeat this assault on Christian values - but first, a quick math lesson. If I vote for Obama, and you vote for Romney, we're even - nobody wins. Our votes cancelled out. But if I vote for Obama, and you vote for a third candidate, or refuse to vote, then that vote for Romney that would cancel out my vote didn't happen, and so Obama is ahead by one vote. Please Ana, re-read this paragraph and know that there are only two realistic outcomes, and that as Christians we are called to move towards the LIGHT.

That same thought crossed my mind. Ryan will, no doubt, have influence on Romney. As it's been said, this will be more like a "co-presidential" effort.

Romney and Ryan are good man. Nobody is perfect, but I feel that Romney's and Ryan's hearts, souls, and minds will be open to the Spirit of God and the spirit of the American people. And if they make a mistake, I sense they will have the inner character to correct and adjust as needed.

Romney: I Will Be a Pro-Life President, De-Fund Planned Parenthood

And on Day One Romney repeals Obamacare. Praying

MITT ROMNEY: "As you might imagine, I disagree with the Supreme Courts decision and I agree with the dissent. What the Court did not do on its last day in session, I will do on my first day if elected President of the United States. And that is I will act to repeal Obamacare."

Romney in Ohio: 'I Feel That We're All Catholic Today'

"At a townhall-style campaign event in Ohio on Wednesday, Mitt Romney was asked by a voter about his views on Barack Obama's "attack on religious freedom."

Romney replied:

Religious liberty, our first freedom of those enumerated in the Bill of Rights. And the president and his administration said they are going to usurp your religious freedom by demanding that you provide products to your employees, if you're the Catholic church, that violates your own conscience.

And so whether it's a Catholic businessperson or the Catholic church itself they're being told what they have to do that violates their religious conscience. That attack on religious freedom I think is a dangerous and unfortunate precedent.

And I know we're not all Catholic in this room. Many presumably are. But I feel that we're all Catholic today. In our battle to preserve religious freedom and tolerance and freedom in this country, it is essential for us to push back against that.

Romney received a 20-second standing ovation.

"Say it again!" yelled a member of the audience as the applause subsided.

"I will say it again," Romney replied. "That's one more good reason to get rid of Obamacare. And I'm going to get that done the first day I'm in office."

After he received another standing ovation, Romney said, "Now, you'd think I'd have started with that. That's the line I should have started with, right?"

Romney's response to question on religious liberty begin at the 6:49 minute mark in this video (via NRO)": www.youtube.com

With all due respect to Governor Romney, and I do genuinely respect him on many levels, the President will not have the power to "repeal" Obamacare on day one or on any day. The law was passed by the Congress and signed by his predecessor, so it can only be repealed by the Congress with a new law that he then could have the pleasure of signing. This is why conservatives MUST re-take the Senate. This is absolutely necessary to get rid of Obamacare. If you have any spare cash, support conservative senatorial candidates!

What a President Romney could do is get rid of the HHS rules that violate our religious freedoms as Catholics. But, even that would probably not happen on day 1 as there is a due process for rule changes that requires publishing rules and taking input from the public. He could start that in motion on day one.

He could also invite the Congress to prepare a bill gutting Obamacare, but retaining the parts the People like. This will take some give and take in the Congress, but I would think if conservatives hold majorities in both houses, and assuming (and it is a big assumption) that the Democrats do not philibuster in the Senate, that such a bill could be produced in about 2 months.

He could fire Secretary Sibelius on day one, and I certainly pray he does fire her instantly, and he could fire all the illegal czars as well. Of course a new Secretary of HHS will require advise and consent hearing in the Senate, but a deputy could take charge until then.

I'm just saying we need to keep the due process in perspective. One of BOs worst characteristics is the way he has run roughshod over the Constitution and due process. Mr. Romney needs to recapture respect for both Constitution and due process by doing all his redirection of the government legally, and according to accepted norms and rules.
