You know what kills me about this? This is also true of every Conservative I know, but with very few exceptions Romney would apply this same dismissive logic to their opinions! How do you follow a guy who believes that his daddy’s money makes him smarter than you with no more evidence than a glance at the truck you drive or the Target brand polo shirt you’re wearing? I do not understand people who have such respect for a person who boasts shameless, unvarnished disrespect for them in return.
This is not a Christian orientation to the world. It has nothing of christlike love or sacrifice, only arrogance, power-lust, and greed. What God calls Christians to is not to dismiss or ignore those who live in public housing or who lack horses to run in the Olympics; rather, we are called to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, and welcome the homeless.
Mister Romney, Undercover Nun is praying for your immortal soul.

Guess what - the world has always been this way. Look at Diogenes. I mean, come on. People didn’t just start getting ruder, or dumber, more dishonest, or more vulgar - it’s just that when we’re younger we don’t see it, and once we start looking outside ourselves we see these things and think they’re new.
Out of peanut butter and tea. May have to leave the house.
