Sir Ron Paul is aligned with the Republican party for one reason. He panders to get votes.
LOL HA HA HA LOL I am sorry, but anyone who runs for office for any party is 'pandering' for that Parties baseline voters. In reality it is the independent voters that really matter. The 3 1/2% that really decide the elections. So, he chose the GOP for where he wants to fight in a 2 party controlled system. Big Deal. Mitt was pandering too.
I can't believe how many sheepeople on this forum Worship him like he is smarter and more knowledgeable than a General Authority.
LOL. I think that those of us who admire Paul prefer the words of the prophets over his words, because they are complete. The prophets have the fullness. Ron Paul is brilliant when it comes to financial temporal matters, but our prophets can cover that and more importantly the spiritual matters.
Does Ron Paul attend any church on a monthly or weekly basis?
Yes, but this doesn't mean much. People who attend church still do wicked things, just look at congress, or a certain Governor who helped push same sex unions.
Does he contribute more than 10% of his increase every year?
I don't know, but I would imagine so since he returns a portion of his salary to the Treasury every year. He doesn't want to take from the people if he doesn't need it.
Does he contribute to charity at all?
If you do not understand the amount of Charity that it takes to be a leader, and that there are many forms of Charity and service to give, then I am not even going to go there. Often the service rendered is without thanks, and is very difficult emotionally and physically, and I do know because I have been doing it on a smaller scale, and I often wonder how he is able to give so much for so long.
This does matter. When millions of worthy LDS contribute more than most kind, courteous, cheerful, thrifty politicos.
You are going to need to back this up with concrete facts.
What does Ron Paul think about Mormons?
He thinks that they are a good and morale people. That should know better about defending the Constitution having had leaders like Ezra Taft Benson. He is in the same organization as the Skousen's etc. He has worked for many years with many LDS people in many capacities.
You really think that Sir Ron Paul is a more spiritual man than Mitt Romney?
Guess their fruits could let you know if that is the case or not.
Have any of you actually met Romney or Paul in person?
Yes *I* have met them both. I had to choose on the side of the Constitution despite appearances. And I assure you when it comes to character, I will let my life rely on Paul before I would Romney.
Its sad people continue to trash Mitt Romney on an LDS forum. Where is all the banter and persuasion about how great a person Harry Reid is?
There is no difference between the two men you mention politically, and some of the things they will say to others about spiritual matters as well. Their policies are tyrannical, they destroy liberty and our nation. And I don't care what titles a man has or what church he belongs to, he does that, and he deserves to hear from those that will still stand up and defend their neighbors from tyrants.
Before Romney bowed graciously out of the 2008 race, How come his Faith was such a big issue? Why is not Nobama, Paul and McCain not questioned about their beliefs or faith?
You are kidding right? Obama not questioned about his faith? His pastor? If he's a Muslim? McCain for having left the Espicopalian church after he was refused the nomination in 2000? Huckabee for being a Bible toten Baptist? I think that the only reason Paul was not asked, was because he did not make his religion part of his campaign.
When I was on the inside of Mitt's campaign, I can tell you that the religious spin was originating from the inside of the campaign in order to get press and more voters support. Sympathy works well with some religious groups. Don't believe all that you see on the Main Stream Media as being the angle from which things really come. 'Bad' news is still news, it gets you talked about in the press, that is a GOOD thing.
