Romney for President!

I've never been a huge political person...let's be honest, I actually try to avoid it because it gets people so fired up. But I came across an article a couple days ago that seemed interesting, so I kept reading. Romney makes me happy. He said some awesome things to Liberty University.

American values, he said, “may become topics of democratic debate from time to time. So it is today with the enduring institution of marriage. Marriage is a relationship between one man and one woman.”

“What you believe, what you value, how you live, matters,” Mr. Romney said.

“What we have, what we wish we had — ambitions fulfilled, ambitions disappointed, investments won, investments lost, elections won, elections lost — these things may occupy our attention, but they do not define us,” he said. “Our relationship with our maker, however, depends on none of that. It is entirely in our control, for he is always at the door, and knocks for us. Our worldly successes cannot be guaranteed, but our ability to achieve spiritual success is entirely up to us, thanks to the grace of God. The best advice I know is to give those worldly things your best but never your all — reserve the ultimate hope for the only one who can grant it.”
