I'm more interested in whether the US President can balance our budget and not so much on who he (or she) prays to before going to bed. Come to think of it the US President probably could use some divine help getting us out of the financial mess we're in.

I'm about positive I could vote for a Mormon. Unless it was Harry Reid..... I'm still not convinced that guy really is.

Really is...what, Pete? A Mormon? BYU thought so when they hosted Reid to speak. A senator? Didn't he win reelection in 2010? Democratic Senate leader? Call the Senate and ask. Or maybe someone in Texas knows, like Ken Starr.

I can Vote for a Mormon. The problem is can I vote for one that is Mormon but Not Mormon Enough.

You check the man against the teaching of the Church and the Churchs stand on any issue, (that can be found on the Church Web Site)the two should measure very close.

When I Voted for Gordon Smith, it was not that he was for or against Abortion and would do somthing about it besides talk, but weather he was for an Adult Human Beings Right To Die. and heis Not.

So I Voted for Him knowing what I was to expect. Support on Abortion but Not on the Right To Die.

Or. is a huge state on the right to die issue. About 70/30 in favor. About the 55/45 Against Abortion and after the 1st Term it goes way way up on the against side.

Point is you have to "Know your Mormons and what the may or may not do.Trust Issue.

The far rights mistake is that they want everything and its not happening that way.

The Right To Life and the Right Of an Adult to Die are two vastly seperate issues.

I can vote for a Mormon.

"A separate AP analysis found that at least 4,000 workers lost their jobs at 45 companies bought by Bain..."

The question then would be, what are the actions of the PERSON.

And then, SHOULD I vote on someone's actions?

Or JUST because, they are a Mormon?

If Mormons can die for their country, can they be president?
