I’ve read through the first three chapters of Mitt Romney’s book, No Apology: The Case for American Greatness.
I’m quite impressed on several counts:
(1) Romney understands the threat of Islam and the scope of the threat. He explains that Islam wants to take over the world, replacing worldwide government with a global caliphate, and Islam’s more immediate goal is retaking all territories previously owned by Muslims. He understands that this breed of Islam doesn’t want a two-state solution to Israel, it seeks the destruction of Israel and the return of that land to Islamic control.
(2) Romney severely criticized Obama’s deplorable action in insisting that the anti-American guy who wanted to be president-for-life of Honduras, Manuel Zelaya be returned to power. This is something Obama did that really pissed me off. Obama consistently pulls the rug out from under our friends while bolstering our enemies. Romney wrote this book before Obama pulled the rug out from under Hosni Mubarak.
(3) Romney wrote a chapter on why nations fail, and gave examples of the Spanish, the Ottomans, and the Chinese (that’s the old China that failed and not the new China that’s rising). And he explains that America’s power is threatened by three threats: China, Russia, and Islam. This is what I previously wrote about China :
I think that people who smugly assume that the U.S. will always naturally be ahead of China are basing such assumptions on racism and not rational analysis. Chinese people are at least as smart as Americans, they aren’t diluting their gene pool with low IQ immigrants, they work hard, they respect value-creation fields like engineering, and the leadership of China wants China to become a great superpower while a lot of the American leadership feels guilty about America being rich and powerful.
No unfortunately, Romney doesn’t mention any stuff about immigration ruining our country nor does he have an HBD analysis. And unfortunately that won’t come out of any candidate today unless we, the HBD bloggers, spread the message first and make it palatable to the majority of Americans. But it’s clear from Romney’s book that he understands the last clause of my quote, that China wants to be a great superpower and a lot of the American leadership, such as Obama and other liberals, feel guilty about America being rich and powerful. Romney says that he wants America to remain the world’s superpower.
