…to help elect Mitt Romney and defeat Barack Hussein Obama.
“Today I’m announcing the most important decision of my political career. Today I am stepping down from my roles in the Libertarian Party, Libertarian National Committee, and as Chairman of the Libertarian National Campaign Committee, to rejoin the Republican Party and most importantly, to elect Mitt Romney President of the United States.”
“I’m a Lifetime Libertarian Party member and will always call myself a REAGAN Libertarian, or Libertarian conservative. Just like Congressman Ron Paul or U.S. Senator Rand Paul- fine Libertarians who call themselves Republicans. I have simply decided to move my Libertarian beliefs and the fight for smaller government to the Republican Party and work within a party that I believe can elect enough good people to change the direction of this country and save my children’s future.”
“First, this election is NOT about Libertarian versus non-Libertarian. It’s about capitalism versus big government progressivism and Big Brother socialism. Mitt Romney is a capitalist businessman, not a career politician. I too am a capitalist businessman above all else. I run multiple businesses and have a half dozen successful careers- all based on the success of capitalism, free markets, and the dynamic U.S. economy.
“Mitt Romney believes in the same things I do–keeping businesses free from government intrusion, allowing small business owners to keep more of their own money, and rewarding instead of punishing investors, innovators, and job creators. Mitt Romney understands, as President Calvin Cooledge once said, ‘the business of America is business.’
“Mitt understands that Obama’s rhetoric, constant threats, IRS intimidation, barrage of tax increases, and 60,000 new rules and regulations have ground the U.S. economy to a halt. Mitt is a turnaround specialist of not only businesses, but the Olympics. That is exactly what America needs right now. The U.S. economy is, for all intents and purposes, a very large and diverse failing company. Our country is in desperate need of a turnaround.”
“What America needs is a capitalist and job creator, with a creative and innovative business mind, and a record of extraordinary success, to lead this country back from the edge of the fiscal cliff. That person is Mitt Romney.”
“Secondly, the sad reality is that the defeat of Barack Obama is necessary to save the U.S. economy. We will not survive 4 more years of Obama as President and CEO of this economy. I know my businesses will not survive another 4 years of Obama. The economy is in free-fall here on Main Street. Small business owners like me are seeing our entire life’s work melting away. The legacy we built for our children is being destroyed. Our assets are disappearing at a record pace. We are frightened for our family’s and country’s future.
“It’s time to put our differences aside. It’s time for Libertarians, Ron Paul supporters, Tea Partiers, conservatives, Republicans, small business owners, homeowners, investors, Christians, Jews, Israel supporters- all of us need to join together in one big tent to support Mitt Romney now.
As Clint Eastwood said, “We own this nation.” It’s time to take it back. Our children’s future depends on it. Our businesses and jobs depend on it. The future of America country depends on it. The future dreams of my four children all depend on this election. Their future quality of life is hanging in the balance.”
