   Iraq, with additional troops endeavoring to secure
   the civilian population."

                                Americans, not through a government
                                program or new taxes, but through market
                                reforms.”
MITT on IMMIGRATION
• “ We must reform the current immigration laws so we can secure our
  borders, implement a mandatory biometrically enabled, tamper proof
  documentation and employment verification system, and increase
  legal immigration into America. “
    MITT on TAXES
“ Keeping taxes low and simplifying the code will grow the
  economy and enhance our competitiveness.”
MITT on ENERGY
“We must become independent from foreign sources of oil.”
MITT on AMERICAN VALUES
 “American values are respect for hard work, sacrifice, civility, love of
 family, respect for life, education and love of freedom. To remain a
 superpower in the world we must continuously and vigorously
 reaffirm these key components that have led to America's greatness
 as a country.”
MITT on EDUCATION
“It is time to raise the bar on education by making teaching a true

science, and involving parents from the beginning of a child's school
career. “
                      PRESS
• The New York Times : “Some evangelicals view Mormonism as
  something similar to a cult.”

• MSNBC.com , “Romney was an abortion rights supporter during his
  2002 race for governor and an unsuccessful US Senate bid in 1994.
  He has said he changed his mind on abortion after reflection on a
  November 2004 meeting with a Harvard stem cell researcher, and
  now considers himself “‘pro-life.’”

• Some people are worried that his religion will affect the way that he
  would govern our country. Some think that his morals will get in the
  way.
