Is Mitt Romney Engaging In Domestic Terrorism?

The question is is Romney's political tactics a form of domestic terrorism? Instead of using death and killing as we typically imagine terrorism to be, could the use money to buy ads that are filled with lies promoting fear and intimidation be a form of domestic terrorism?

To define Terrorism, one might say it is:

The use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims.

To define Violence, or might say it is


swift and intense force. Or, rough or injurious physical force, action, or treatment. Oran unjust or unwarranted exertion of force or power, as against rights or laws. Or, rough or immoderate vehemence, as of feeling or language.

So, we could extrapolate from the above definitions that, yes, Romney is engaging in domestic terrorism. Some of his ads are expressed in rough and intense force in the form of lies. His vehement lies are damaging, and intimidating in his pursuit of political aims.

They begin with his lies about Jeep and GM cutting domestic jobs and moving Jeep to China at the expense of domestic jobs. This is shameful and corrupt. This propaganda is what dictators do to stir fear and hate in order to align the population behind this kind of liar, who uses these techniques to maintain power and control.

In Romney's case, he is using these techniques to grab power and control from Obama in this election cycle.

Now, we have learned that the UAW has filed an ethics complaint against Romney due to his hiding of his financial investment in the auto parts manufacturer Delphi, located in Ohio.

According to documents, Romney stated that there should not have been any auto bailout to GM or Chrysler. They needed to go into bankruptcy. Yet, Romney purchased millions of dollars worth of shares in Delphi at the time for 32 cents a share after the stock price tanked. Now, those shares are worth around $32 per share. What is that? Is that a 4000% gain?

Once the bailout occurred, Romney decided to intimidate GM by demanding that GM pay higher prices for Delphi auto parts used in GM products, which, ultimately cost the taxpayers even more money than before the stock purchases by the Romney family.

Romney was already running for president, yet he was profiteering from the auto bailout knowing full well that Americans would be paying higher prices for Romney's auto parts.

The ethics complaint is asking if there was a conflict of interest by the Romneys. Since Romney has refused to reveal their tax returns that would show their investment in Delphi, the American people don't know just how powerful Romney is in the decisions made by Delphi executives.

Romney is NOT using weapons in his act of terrorism against American, but using lots and lots of money to intimidate votes with lies and fraudulent messages to try and capture control of power and the White House.
