On his first presidential visit to address the European nations, President Obama felt it necessary to apologize for America’s international power. He repeated that apology when visiting Latin America, and again to Muslims worldwide in an interview broadcast on Al-Arabiya television.In No Apology, Mitt Romney asserts that American strength is essential—not just for our own well-being, but for the world’s. Governments such as China and a newly-robust Russia threaten to overtake us on many fronts, and radical Islam continues its dangerous rise. Drawing on history for lessons on how great powers collapse, Romney shows how and why our national advantages have eroded. From the long-term decline of our manufacturing base, our laggard educational system that has left us without enough engineers, scientists, and other skilled professionals, our corrupted financial practices that led to the current crisis, and the crushing impact of entitlements on our future obligations, America is in debt, overtaxed, and unprepared for the challenges it must face.We need renewal: fresh ideas to cut through complicated problems and restore our strength. Creative and bold, Romney proposes simple solutions to rebuild industry, create good jobs, reduce out of control spending on entitlements and healthcare, dramatically improve education, and restore a military battered by eight years of war. Most important, he calls for a new commitment to citizenship, a common cause we all share, rather than a laundry list of individual demands. Many of his solutions oppose President Obama’s policies, many also run counter to Republican thinking, but all have one strategic aim: to move America back to political and economic strength. Personal and dynamically-argued, No Apology is a call to action by a man who cares deeply about America’s history, its promise, and its future.

George Romney: An American Life
3 used from $ 16.29
- From homeless refugee to presidential candidate
George W. Romney was one of the most remarkable people of the Twentieth century. As Chairman of American Motors Corporation from 1954-1962 he saved that company from sure destruction and led it to its greatest success. He later became the most popular governor in Michigan history, a Republican stalwart beloved in a Democratic state. He ran for the presidency in 1967 and served as Secretary of HUD in the first Nixon administration before leaving over concerns about the president. More than a mere list of accomplishments, he also lived a romantic, heroic life. While still a child his family was chased out of their home in Mexico, becoming homeless refugees living in poverty. Even after the family reestablished itself in the United States they lived a hand-to-mouth existence, but Romney never lost hope. He believed that in America anyone could rise above their humble origins and accomplish anything they wanted to. He went from being a farmhand and carpenter to becoming the most famous CEO of his era. Seen as a steady, wholesome sort, he rashly quit college to win the hand of a beautiful Hollywood starlet he loved intensely. In this book you ll learn the story of one of the most remarkable men of the 20th-century, a man who combined sheer moral force with hard-driving determination to succeed. Honest, truthful, hard-working and decent, Romney was the sort of person who comes along rarely, and leaves us too soon. His type sets the standard by which others are judged. And for that we can be grateful.

Whether or not W. Mitt Romney finally decides to seek the U.S. Presidency in 2016, it is clear he will heavily influence the candidate chosen by the Republican Party. R.B. (Ron) Scott provides the first and only independent (unauthorized) biographical profile of the GOP nominee in 2012 and influential player in choosing a candidate for the 2016 presidential election many knowledgeable observers say is "the Republicans to lose." Mitt Romney... takes a frank and revealing look at what makes the man tick, more human than he often appears to be on the stump: his character, convictions, his words and actions, yes his flips and his flops too, and, his triumphs and setbacks. It also attempts to answer the question everyone keeps asking: Could a faithful Mormon ever be elected President of the United States? Drawing on extensive research amassed over more than two decades, including interviews with people who know him best--allies and adversaries alike--this book paints a savvy, textured, and revealing portrait of the candidate, his history, family, religion, political beliefs, and strategy. It puts Mitt, his family, his history and religion in context like no other book to date.

|Title||Mitt Romney and the Mormon Church: Questions|
A brief review of the Mormon corporate empire and the power it holds over high priest and presidential candidate Mitt Romney, whose family has been a part of the Mormon Royalty since the Church's creation.Voters of every political persuasion who are considering voting for Mitt Romney, and who think his religious convictions are benign, must carefully evaluate his religious beliefs to determine for themselves if that is true, and they have every right to do so.Voters, who are becoming increasingly concerned about government intrusion into their lives and the loss of their personal freedoms, must ask themselves whether they want to vote for a president who has spent the last 50 years enthusiastically proselytizing for a secret religion that believes its priests have the sacred right to dictate the health, moral, psychological and financial decisions of its members. Is that a mindset they want in their president?Voters have to honestly ask themselves whether Mitt Romney "shares their religious values" and if not, what those differences will mean to them, their families and their country, should he be elected president.Voters will have choices other than Mitt Romney and Barack Obama in November. The Green Party and the Libertarian Party will both offer worthy candidates on the ballots of every state. Although it is unlikely their candidates will be successful, these candidates provide an opportunity for voters to vote their consciences, rather than their fears.If dissatisfied with all candidates, voters retain the power to write in their choice, even if the name is not on the ballot. Protest write-in vote will not be counted, however, is essential that voters demonstrate that the government belongs to the voters who elect it, rather than to those who try to buy elections and hire the People's representatives.If every qualified voter were to cast a vote of conscience, based upon an intelligent and thoughtful consideration of the qualifications of every candidate, the election of 2012 could very well go down in history. Not because of who was elected, but because of the manner in which the People voted.

In the contested terrain of American politics, nowhere is the conflict more intense, even brutal, than in the territory of public life also claimed by religion. Mitt Romney's 2007-2008 presidential campaign is a textbook example. Religious historian Craig L. Foster revisits that campaign with an astute focus on the never-quite-contained hostility that Romney triggered among America's religious right. Although no political campaign is known for its sweetness and light, the back-stabbing, mean-spirited attacks, eruptions of irrationalism, and downright lies exploded into one the chapters of recent American political history. What does Romney's campaign and the resistance of the religious right mean for America in the twenty-first century?
