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?

    equality…..womens rights….and strong education

    comes last??
    how do you sacrifice equality but you want people to come together to have a stronger economy?
    how do you put having a stong educational system on the back burner but you want people to get off of their butts and do something for themselves and have a better life. let kids grow up with poor education? (basically sacrifice them until we get a better economy and hope the other generations are good).

    how do you say you support womens rights but you say that can wait? the women that fought for their rights your predecessors what they fought for will have to wait? why does my reproductive system include you (the government)?

  2. many black people are so blinded by self hate that they cannot reason clearly….

  3. “The “Clueless” star…..”

    Lol, slicker than a can of oil you are.

    I am not sure about her sincerity, she makes some interesting points on 4 and 5 but her stand on 1 is outrageous. Mitt’s own financial dealings has so much shade in it would make a Chicago pimp blush. As for 3 it’s like WTF? The same party Mitt belongs to has been the one doing the obstructionist dance. So the solution is to let them have their cake and eat it too? Just give in to the bully, no? At her age she shouldn’t be that naïve. This has to be a publicity stunt.

    Equal right from Romney? This girl is misinformed and clueless.

  5. Agreed! Hopefully this is her last 15 minutes on this subject.
