During a town hall in Ohio on Wednesday, Romney responded to question about the United Nations by declaring that the international body will undermine Americans’ Second Amendment rights and dictate how families should raise their children:
ROMNEY: Turning to the United Nations to tell us how to raise our kids, or whether we can have the Second Amendment rights that our Constitution gave us, I mean, that is the wrong way to go, right? Do not cede sovereignty. I’m happy to talk there. I’m not willing to give American sovereignty in any way, shape or form to the United Nations or any other body. We are a free nation. We fought for freedom and independence. We are going to keep freedom and independence.
Romney is a conservative, but he’s not this crazy. As Think Progress explains, this is the same kind of leap of lunacy that leads to a belief in light bulb vigilantes vigilantes. He really will do anything, including reciting half-baked neo-Bircher conspiracies, to get elected.
