Romney Killed My Wife!

Posted by Troy on 9th August 2012 in Current Events, Political

A new attack ad on Romney claims that his shutting down a plant caused a man’s wife to die.  Shall we also charge liquor store owners with drunk driving deaths then?  What about you eating crab when someone dies on The Most Dangerous Catch?  Do you see where we are going?  Did you know that it is a given that x number of workers will be killed building a road or building a building?  If we set a speed limit of 35 miles per hour, we would have virtually zero fatalities on the road.  Does your desire not to take seven forevers in getting somewhere mean that you are directly responsible for these deaths?  Sounds that way, really.  Is it a company’s objective to provide health care to people?  Nope.  It’s to make a profit.  If you owned a business that wasn’t profitable, you wouldn’t sit there and keep losing money.  Would you?  If you would, it’s no small wonder that you don’t own a business.

Here’s the real answer to this attack, and it’ll never be said.  Sometimes, life sucks.  Sometimes, life is unfair.  Everyone you know will eventually die.  Sometimes through no fault of their own.  Perhaps, if the steel mill had been left open, the husband would have fallen into a vat of molten steel and died, and his wife still would have died of cancer.  Life is crazy and unpredictable.  The only thing we can do is play the hand we are dealt to the best of our abilities.  I’m sorry that the man’s wife died, but Romney’s no more to blame than anyone else.  This isn’t to mention the fact that she died 7 years after he was fired and had insurance of her own.

Life isn’t fair.  Deal with it.

Long Live the Constitution!
