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?

    i’m actually a bit annoyed with scapegoating a woman using foodstamps for marshmallow puffs when annually billions in tax abatement are given to billion-dollar corporations with “promises” of local employment (which of course NEVER happens). next.

    She voted for Romney because she wants a stronger economy and that’s her main focus. That’s bs because do you really think that if Romney won, that he can magically make all of the debt disappear? NO and he probably wouldn’t make it any better than it is now. The main reason I voted for Obama is because of equal rights. If she’s so concerned about women’s equality then voting for Romney was a big mistake. In a nutshell, he’s not for helping women. Regardless of her idiotic vote, Obama won.
