Earlier on during his career, he abstained to take any political positions, but with time as he indulged himself into politics, and it was in 1994 Senate race that he aligned himself with the Republican Party. He is also believed to have changed his position on issues like abortion and stem cell research, also his stance on gay rights etc to a more conservative shift, more so to align himself with the Party line. Considering his views on foreign policy, he is an advocate for the American Exceptionalism and is found to have Mormon beliefs in this regard, i.e. God has chosen him to carry the task, however, his political beliefs more so reflect the secular ideals of Mormon belief system. Considering his past record and performance in government as well as in business, there are many reasons why not to vote for Mitt Romney. His track record as a businessman reflects his take on the economy as a whole which may turn out to be disastrous for the U.S, also his fraudulent track records alone are proofs enough speaking for his character and charisma. More so, even the conservatives generally in favor of the Republicans are wary of Romney as their Presidential Candidacy for his inexperience and paradoxical track record as Governor. For instance, the health care plan posed by his as Governor is similar to the Obamacare one, also the conservatives doubt him for his credibility as he has been found shifting positions on issues like abortion, gun rights, his position over TARP etc. Moreover, on the political front too, his position doesn’t seem to be any stronger as he had already done bad in the primaries in South, also the Mormon factor might as well take him down. Thus, the paper aims at exploring all these perspectives in detail, shedding light on the issue of why not to vote for Romney.

However, Romney is a very weak candidate in this context, as he is known for his success rate for running Staples and Dominos, which were running on a huge loan and a low turn-out rate, with an even lower wage rate (Romney and Tomothy pp 43). America needs a visionary to steer the economy at the right pace, rather than someone who has the capability to deliver pizzas and that too, not having an exceptional turnout. Secondly, during his career as a businessman he often has had fraudulent records which he has been managing to deal with using unethical and illegal tactics, thus posing a question mark on his character as a representative for the people of America. Romney`s company Bian Capital has had charges of fraud, and though he was Vice President of the company, still he didn’t buy any shares for the company as he was already aware of the financial risks, thus he is a man who doesn’t even own what he does, owing a country however is even a riskier business. Moreover, he managed to escape the Olympics scandal by paying off huge cheques as donations to various parties involves in the process, thus being another evidence for his bad track record. Moreover, various reports when indicated that he also has a residence in Utah, he never denied the charges though pretended to be ignorant of the fact which clearly implies of his intentions to run office from here as well, which he had managed to do illegally as wouldn’t have been possible otherwise. Also, he is too inexperienced for holding office as a President; as he has often seen making controversial statements and treating government as a
