As an independent, I have not firmly decided who I'll vote for. I am
becoming more convinced that Mitt is a political moderate.A few
other beliefs: He is not a partisan politician. He will not rescind or
substantially change ObamaCare. He will be aligned with the LDS stand on
abortion (none except for health of mother, incest, rape). He will not lead a
comprehensive immigration policy, but would beef up border security. He may
increase military spending. He is not likely to raise taxes on the wealthy. But
he will soon find that increased military spending along with no new taxes will
increase the annual deficit along with the National Debt.In general,
he does not have an inclination to lead in a partisan fashion. He does have an
inclination to work with both parties to reach compromise.As a very
wealthy person (in top 1% of American income), he does not know much about how
lower and middle class Americans live.
My goodness! Having to meet your soon-to-be father-in-law with Sean Hannity
running his mouth in the background! Good for them. For me, it would have
been, "Thanks, but let's not have politics in this marriage." Just
for my own sanity.Just listening to the Fox News blather just makes
my skin crawl. And if the father-in-law was listening to Rush Limbaugh, I would
seriously wonder about my judgement. I would insist on a "politics
free" zone whenever we visited the in-laws, and hopefully I wouldn't
say anything that would lead to a divorce within the year.The good
people I know who have extreme views know not to express them when I am around.
Otherwise, I just leave. This would really make the holidays difficult. But,
if I don't make noise about my liberal views, I should hope they would show
the same kindness and not subject me to their conservative views. There's
enough that we can discuss and agree on without having to mess things up.
middle class Cedar City, 00So you are in full agreement with Newt
Gingrich and Rick Santorum?How did Mitt Romney convince Republicans
that he was "severely conservative"? For the past year he has been
telling us one thing and now you say he is not what he said. This really
creates confusion, particularly for those who voted for him in the Republican
middle class: As an LDS bishop and a stake president I can guarantee he knows a
great deal about how all classes of people live. Also, how would any of us
know the financial conditions of Ann's siblings and their families, or of
the families that Mitt's daughters-in-law come from? Just because one is
wealthy you can presume nothing about how their own extended families live.
My advice to her is dump him. And for all of you Mitt is this and Mitt is that.
Mitt isn't this and that. What Mitt is, he ain't Obama. Thats all you
need to know.
mohokatOgden, UTMy advice to her is dump him. ============ Telling someone to get a divorce over different
political views?You are one pretty extreme individual.My
advice is to keep out of it, it's none of your business...
mohokat Ogden, UT"What Mitt is, he ain't Obama. Thats all
you need to know."That statement pretty well sums up the
conservative position. No need for facts. No need for vision. " . . . he
@ Salsa No need for Vision? Would that be from Obama? No thank you I have read
Karl Marx! Having the two choices Marxism or Capitalism I think I will choose
capitalism and I know Obama is an expert on that.
Well, one person in that household will be happy after Nov. 2, at least...
