The whole system is rotten inside and out. A president has little control over much of what happens anyway.I think it puts many LDS to sleep, thinking all will be well now. Of course, that assumes Romney can even be elected.
All things are possible given that it is God's will. I just don't think this country is living up to the standard of being saved. A remnant, I can believe, but allowing us to continue to wallow in sin and destruction- going along as we have been doing. I don't buy that. Too many innocents are crying out from the grave, for vengeance upon their murderers.
We must think clearly here. It is not what may or may not be God's will for any candidate to get into office of POTUS. God's will is that we seek honest, wise and good people to fill that position...nothing more...nothing less. It is God's will for all of us to know the Constitution and to defend and uphold it at all costs. We can hinder God's will by us not doing what we're supposed to do. Why would he put a righteous person in office when we, as a whole, don't even know what the Constitution is all about? Would he put a righteous person in there even though as a whole, the country would scoff and ridicule him for his righteousness?
It is God's will that the Saints know that the Constitution is just as precious as is the gospel, to be protected and revered. They both came from God and are akin to one another.
I ask, DO THE SAINTS KNOW THIS?
Here it is for those who question my words.Doctrine and Covenants 98:6
6 Therefore, I, the Lord, justify you, and your brethren of my church, in befriending that law which is the constitutional law of the land;Doctrine and Covenants 101:80
And for this purpose have I established the Constitution of this land, by the hands of wise men whom I raised up unto this very purpose, and redeemed the land by the shedding of blood.
Once freedom and liberty are lost it will take more bloodshed to restore it again.
God went through great steps for us to have freedom because He knows what some men will do to try to take it away and bring forth tyranny in its place. And so far the Gads are doing a pretty good job. Why? Because Americans do not know when they have it good, not to the point of keeping it! Khrushchev told Benson Americans are gullible. Was he correct? Now look where we're at. This is real sad.
Romney sure cannot do it. Obama will not do it. So just whose responsibility is it now to keep it?
