The Mind of Romney and the Mind of Obama
Before I retired from the U.S. Department of Justice, I concluded that our minds are formed by 'symbols.' I found that incorrect symbols can lead to false scientific statements and that good symbols can lead to precise scientific statements. Symbol also affect social relations. So, a boy's mind in a ghetto must learn to 'duck' when daddy comes home as a drunk and swings at the boy. But a boy's mind in a suburb will learn the true meaning of a 'duck' that lives on ponds. When I studied Jesus, he said that all of our evils come from the symbols within us. (See Mark 7:23)
I conclude that the mind of Obama is concentrated on the equality of people and their future. This concentration is necessary for all future presidents because human lives never end. The mind of Romney is concentrated on ways that the U.S. economy can be fixed.
As a learned scientist and a student of theology, I say that Romney's mind is a materialistic mind filled with many old symbols. His concentration on business management limited his thoughts to 'size of government.' On the other hand, Obama's mind is a metaphysical mind that is reaching into God's infinity with many new symbols for government. The disconnection of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution has limited the actions and thoughts of Romney and Obama
