Though most people wouldn’t peg Stacey Dash as a political expert, she has been vocal throughout the Presidential race. The “Clueless” star first announced her support for Mitt Romney on Twitter to the chagrin of several fans who felt she was misinformed and selling out. She followed up with a series of photo opps, posing with the Republican Vice Presidential candidate, Paul Ryan, and casting her vote.

On the eve of President Obama’s historic win, Stacey wrote a three page letter about her political affiliation. Dash explained how she came to vote for Mitt Romney and her hopes for the country. Read the full letter at TMZ.

Here are a couple interesting points she raised:

1. On The Economy:

“I voted for the Romney ticket because I was inspired by their promises of working tirelessly to create a strong economy as their first objective. I have other issues that are close to my heart like equality, and women’s rights, and the benefits of strong public schools. I realize on these issues I’m entirely progressive. There are plenty of moderate Republicans who feel exactly the way I do on these issues. I don’t think we have to trade one for the other. The main objective of our nation must be repairing the economy. All our social concerns must come after this. Without a stable economy our great nation falls.”

2. She Voted for Obama in 2008:

“Two wars and a recession later I became newly invested in presidential politics by Barack Obama. I voted for Obama in 2008. Yes, I was part of the overwhelming majority that swept President Obama into his historic election! I hadn’t known anything about him until he earned the Democratic nomination. He’s brilliant, understated, ethical, a great husband and father. President Obama will always be remembered as one of the greatest leaders this United States of America has ever known.”

3. On Non-Partisan Politics:

“I feel a desperation for the country. The fact is, that when the two parties are not working together, it makes things worse! Bring me a leader from either party that can get this unstuck. Non-partisanship is what will get Americans back to work and the homeless back on their feet. Whoever is the next president must break gridlock and do the will of the people. Stop pandering to partisan politics while our great nation flounders.”

4. On Race:

“Like most Americans I was insulted with the idea that Obama was only elected because he was black, that people of color wanted one of their own, regardless of what sort of leader he would make. The same idiots make the argument that white guilt is why so many Americans voted Obama into office in the first place. That rhetoric is what helps divide this great nation. I didn’t vote for Clinton because he was white and neither did anyone else. The skin color of candidates needs to be the last thing discussed, if at all.”

5. On Welfare:

“Welfare reform is also in order. An elderly woman stands in the same grocery line pinching pennies to buy a can of soup while a woman is buying marshmallow fluff with food stamps. As times have changed, welfare policy needs to keep stride, just like every other issue.”

What do you think of Stacey Dash’s letter and perspective, Clutchettes?

    Sad so many people think that their lives cannot be turned completely upside down at the blink of an eye there was a picture of a family with kids and all on the street with their stuff and people had the nerve to judge immediately and say “why would they have all of those kids knowing they dont have anything”

    really?
    Do people not stop to think that just because a person is down on the ground now doesnt mean they were always in that position?
    these lol god fearing people forget that the lord doesnt judge people based on their credit score or what thread count they have on their beds at night nor does he look down on you because he knows you are wading through one of the many trials and tribulations you will go through in life. Haha is all i can say to people who call themselves grateful for everything they HAVE when i see people with nothing being grateful to the lord for still having faith when alot of people in their position would be questioning why? why? why me?

  2. I think it’s nice that Stacey Dash can form complete sentences, but I still don’t care what she thinks. It should be okay for her to have whatever political views and opinions she wants, no matter how shortsighted. And it really doesn’t even matter now; the best man won. LOL.
