Jer. 17:9-10 / “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it? “I the Lord search the heart and test the mind, to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his deeds.”
UPI reported today: JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Jan. 26 (UPI) — Mitt Romney said in Florida Wednesday if he is elected president, former Cuban dictator Fidel Castro would “finally be taken off this planet.”
Romney made the remark at a forum held by the U.S.-Cuba Democracy Political Action Committee, while his main rival for the Republican presidential nomination, Newt Gingrich, said he would go after Castro and Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.
“If I’m fortunate to become the next president of the United States, it is my expectation that Fidel Castro will finally be taken off this planet,” Romney said.
“I doubt he’ll take any time in the sky,” he said. “He’ll find a nether region to be more to his comfort.”

Politics aside (i.e. Democrat, Republican, Conservative, Liberal etc.) – to wage a campaign for the Presidency of the United States, which includes a promise to see to it that another human being is killed, is as morally reprehensible as anything I’ve heard in my 58 years.
Take a good look at total depravity in action.
It is precisely why politics can never save us.
Put us in the nicest suits.
Educate us in the finest institutions.
Give us economic advantages beyond the reach of all previous generations put together – and when we want what we want, be it power, or pleasure, or more things – we will…
Multiply and justify our wives and mistresses; excoriate anyone who disagrees with us in the slightest; rage indignantly when our morality is questioned; take King’s ransoms working for the very people we vilify later; say God, Mom & apple pie – all while promising to murder heads of state we don’t like.
Make no mistake beloved – such things have absolutely NOTHING to do with Christianity or the spirit of Christ in any way, shape or form.
We do not need to replace one kind of moral bankruptcy with another.
We need national repentance.
