Your home for discussing politics, the restored gospel of Jesus Christ, and the principles of liberty.

I don't understand how any Latter-day Saint could ever take the positions that Romney took on gay rights, abortion, and the Boy Scouts.
"I think of all the candidates who have a chance to be president that Mitt Romney is the one most pleasiing to God. Sadly, I do not believe that Ron Paul would be as willing to listen to the spirit and put what God wants first. I do believe that about Mitt Romney and I pray that he will become president."
I would take Romney over Julie Annie, but thats not saying much.
Americans acknowledge that liberty is a gift of God, not an indulgence of government. No people in the history of the world have sacrificed as much for liberty. The lives of hundreds of thousands of America's sons and daughters were laid down during the last century to preserve freedom, for us and for freedom loving people throughout the world. America took nothing from that Century's terrible wars - no land from Germany or Japan or Korea; no treasure; no oath of fealty. America's resolve in the defense of liberty has been tested time and again. It has not been found wanting, nor must it ever be. America must never falter in holding high the banner of freedom.
Infinitely worse is the other extreme, the creed of conversion by conquest: violent Jihad, murder as martyrdom... killing Christians, Jews, and Muslims with equal indifference. These radical Islamists do their preaching not by reason or example, but in the coercion of minds and the shedding of blood. We face no greater danger today than theocratic tyranny, and the boundless suffering these states and groups could inflict if given the chance.
For, I remember the word of God which saith by their works ye shall know them; for if their works be good, then they are good also. Moroni 7:5
most Mormons just doesn't get it. (I'm sure you caught this in the sixth paragraph, Lundbaek. Sorry, it's the school marm in me.)
What would it cost to buy the support of just about every nationally syndicated neocon talk show host in America? About $19.5 billion, which is what Mitt Romney's private equity firm, Bain Capital, and Thomas H. Lee Partners have agreed to pay in a leveraged buyout agreement with Clear Channel Communications, the largest radio station owner in the country. This is part of a negotiation that has been pending for over a year.

Mr. Romney, you have demonstrated that either you have not capacity to understand the Constitution, or that you are wanting in the honesty and firmness to be guided by it. In either case you are not the man to represent me. Perhaps your understanding of the Constitution is very different from mine. I believe you to be honest. But an understanding of the Constitution different from mine I cannot overlook, because the Constitution, to be worth anything, must be held sacred, and rigidly observed in all its provisions. The man who wields power and misinterprets it is the more dangerous the more honest he is.
You indicated recently that you would violate the Constitution in what I consider a vital point. It is a precedent fraught with danger to the country, for when the President once begins to stretch his power beyond the limits of the Constitution, there is no limit to it, and no security for the people. I have no doubtBecause you are a Mormon, I'd like to think you acted honestly, but that does not make it any better, except as far as you are personally concerned, and you see that I cannot vote for you.
