It should be "so what," but the election of our current president has
proven that it's anything but "so what" with the so-called
If Mitt came out with his Mormonism sooner to the public then, like most
Americans, we would have been more comfortable with his faith. I accept he
chooses to keep parts of his life private, but if you’re going to earn my
vote to run our country then I would like to know who you are both good and bad.
Yes it is hard to get away for Mormons to stray away from the label of being
referred to as a “Cult” and not accepted as a
“Christian,” but at the end morals built upon our selected faith
will ultimately decide which candidate we choose. Faith put aside I wish both
candidates their respected success, so what!
qc,,,,Read any of the history of the Mormon faith back to 1820 and the
persecution. Mitt Romney has nothing to hide. The enemies are and always have
been negative against our faith. The liberal press and liberal bloggers will try
to make the religion factor a big part of this election. In truth it has nothing
to do with it. It comes down to philosophies on how to run this country: free
enterprise or government control. I choose free enterprise!Romney-Ryan 2012
Mr. Walker:Excellent article! But if your article indicated when,
how or where to view this documentary, I somehow missed it.Please
BYUalum, Sorry, but you are just not seeing the big picture. Religion is a huge
factor in this election. Romney to a great extent is his religion, and to not
understand Mormonism is not to know who Romney is. It is almost impossible to
keep religion out of politics when it is the primary substance of a candidates
BYUalum,With very few exceptions, the so-called "enemies" of
the LDS Church have always been created from within the Church itself!But don't let that stop your playing the standard LDS "poor me"
persecution card!Ironic that Mormons consider themselves
"victims" more than most religious groups, yet Romney has the audacity
to falsely claim that the 47% of Americans who support Barack Obama consider
themselves "victims"... hmmm.
Mitt's Mormonism has nothing to do with why he's not doing better.
He's just not as good a candidate as he could be. He still thinks that what
was good enough to get the GOP nomination is a winning strategy for November.
Craig Clark: Don't underestimate the Romney team. In a month or less,
they are going to unleash their fury on Obama, and I believe it will be the
undoing of Obama. One thing history has shown is that republicans know how to
run a campaign, and you will see that very shortly. Obama has gambled early and
spent his money. Romney has spent a lot less money than Obama, but will make
that up with a month to go, and I do not think Obama will be able to recover.
That's just my take; but with the two campaigns so close right now, and
with Romney being able to outspend Obama soon, it will be Romney in an easy
win.If you don't want that to happen, better spread the word!
"and with Romney being able to outspend Obama soon, it will be Romney in an
easy win."You may be right.The sad thing is the
amount of money spent on campaigns. And, as you pointed out, how much that
money can sway an election.And all that money requires favors and
payback.We should ALL support taxpayer funded campaigns with equal
money going to each. No corporate donations, or Union donations or anonymous
donations.Get all the money out, and our politicians would be more
responsible to the people.
MINO is the key. Nobody has any idea what Romney believes.
To JoeBlow: Ah, we can dream, can't we. I wish it would go a step further
and make it so there are only debates. No ads, no commercials, no rhetoric.
Just debates and then a vote.
BYUalum said:"The liberal press and liberal bloggers will try to make

this newspaper (liberal press?) and during the primaries with the other
religious zealots in his own party, NOT Obama or his campaign Be honest have you
even heard of Obama mentioning Mit's religion?I think not. But the
truth has nothing to do with your post, does it.
