Wilson on Romney

Doug Wilson has an interesting post over at his site explaining why he won’t be voting for Romney in the upcoming election.  The article is worth reading in full but here is a take-away quote:

The one saving grace of having to deal with the Obama administration is that he can’t help but overreach. His love of soft totalitarianism is apparent to all who know how to read and think at the same time. But I would rather have that than have someone drifting in the same general direction in ways that will rarely if ever be guilty of overreach. If Marx and Lenin were candy apple red, then Obama is a dull brick color, and Romney is Alecia Beth Moore, better known as Pink.

  1. As you know I like Wilson a lot and respect him. He is gifted like few others in making a point. What he says makes sense and the take-away you cited is indeed the take-a-away.

    I wonder at what point I would consider not exercising my right to vote in the hopes that the worse of two shades of red would get elected and provoke a civil liberty revolt? I’ll have to mull that over.

    However, whoever wins will probably be in a position to appoint Supreme Court justices. If the social issues are as important to Wilson as he says, then that is a pretty big deal and that raises the issue of who is more likely to nominate a judge who is a constitutionalist and will not see the Constitution as if it were made of silly putty.
