Romney should run for Senate.

He would landslide Hatch.

Of course, LDSFF would not support Romney, but they dislike Hatch. That is a dilemma!

yeah I have no great admiration of Romney, but I'd take him as a Hatch replacement in a heartbeat.

Who would be better than Romney ? The only names I can think of at the moment are Scott Bradley, Joe Fabiano, and a guy who once ran for Congress who's last name is Hudson. But there have been other Utah constitutionalists who have run for Congress but are now long forgotten. Ir's just that most Utah voters are unappreciative of those who would honour the principles of the US Constitution.

There are a lot of good constitutional people.

I would vote for this guy anytime.

Boooo! on both Romney and Hatch. How about Jonathan Johnson? He won over the conservative crowd pretty handily against Gov. Herbert in the last primary race. He eventually lost because, may I make a terrible generalization? Utahns like big, known names. Shouldn't every elected official be something of an unknown? Get in, do some good, get out and get back on with your real life and career. Career politicians make me ill. Especially the RINO variety.

Romney would be a useless hack for Utah. However, he's a useful tool of the globalists.
The bigger the lie, the more likely the uninformed are to accept it, simply because they cannot believe any government would tell such an absurd story unless it were true.

Yeah, you would say that.

"When he was the governor of Massachusetts, Romney signed a ban on assault weapons, like the one used in the movie theatre in Aurora. “Deadly assault weapons have no place in Massachusetts,” he said at the time. “These guns are not made for recreation or self-defense. They are instruments of destruction with the sole purpose of hunting down and killing people.” Romney also signed a law that raised the state’s gun-licensing fee to a hundred dollars, from twenty-five." https://www.newyorker.com/news/news-des ... -candidate

I'll spend big to support one of Romney's opponents in the primary.

Imagine, using an Assault Hunting Gun, to pump 405 rounds into that deer. You sure killed it. No meat left, but who wanted the meat.

The assault weapons owners in Utah and Arizona are going to save the US. Well, maybe in their minds...

He has served as a Governor, Business man, Stake President, Bishop. He doesn't own an AR-15. He does care about the poor. He doesn't want to redistribute wealth from the poor to the rich. He doesn't want to be Trump's good buddy. etc., etc., etc.

First off, there is at least one member of the U.S. House of Representatives who espouses and upholds the principles of the U.S. Constitution: Andy Biggs, Arizona CD5. There may be others; I think there are.

Second, I suggest that those of you who think that Mitt Romney would be a good senator review carefully his verbal support (thank heaven that's as far as he got) of "a woman's right to choose", the NDAA, the Patriot Act, denial of trial and the right of habeus corpus to those accused (not found guilty) of perceived terrorism, "Bailouts" of floundering businesses with taxpayer money, which are not permitted under the US Constitution, infringements of the 2nd Amendment, most of Obamacare even if repealed, and his support of Senator John McCain during his last run for Senate.

Third, remember his God has not spoken to man since Moses and the bush blunder.

It should be increasingly known by now among LDS voters that Mitt Romney doesn't understand the US Constitution, doesn't understand his responsibility to it, and/or doesn't have the integrity to be guided by it. But that can be said of most LDS voters in the United States.

Romney shows no inclination to abolish the immoral and unconstitutional Federal Reserve system. That is, by definition, approval of redistributing wealth from the non-rich to the rich.

The Federal Reserve provides a safer, more flexible, and more stable monetary and financial system.

Utahans like Romney, even democrats:
Voters from all across the board supported Romney, the survey reported, with nearly 95 percent of Republicans and 22 percent of Democrats selecting him over Wilson. More than half of the independent voters polled also preferred Romney over Wilson, according to the poll.

As I said, I'm not going to debate you further. Neither will I do your research for you. You will value the answers more if you seek them out on your own rather than labeling me and then tossing out loaded questions.

I am very much "against the Federal Reserve". It was created to usurp the responsibility of the US Congress mandated by Article 1, Section 8 of the US Constitution to create money and has done so such that inflation has been robbing holders of US currency of the value/purchasing power of their money since its inception.
