Utah senator notes he may not endorse anyone in 2020
I pray that a MUCH better Republican runs against Romney. Romney is not a
Republican in my opinion and a turncoat to the GOP party. Why not get behind
Trump instead of trying to make himself look good to the Democrats for a future
run as President? I see all Romney is and has done as a road to the White House
as a "middle grounder". Romney should not be considered a Republican.
There are currently two candidates running for the Republican nomination--trump
and Bill Weld (a former Republican governor of Massachusetts). trump, because of
his outrageous actions and comments, gets copious notice in the news media
across the political spectrum. Bill Weld, although he is the more honest,
honorable and qualified candidate -- much more fit and qualified to be President
than trump in every way -- gets a mere miniscule amount of attentionevery now
and again, even though he works diligently to campaign.It's
well past time that Bill Weld should get the attention he deserves. It is well
past time that the voting public should learn that there is a Republican
alternative to trump who is much more attractive than trump, and would be much
better, more patriotic and more qualified to serve as the President of the
United States.Message to the media and the voting public -- Please
give Weld the same amount of attention trump gets. The voting public would be
well served if Weld got the attention he deserves. We need someone who can be
effective in cleaning up the mess trump has already caused, and will cause
during the election. Weld is the man to do it.
Not happy about Romney. He needs to stop the posturing and get behind a
president who is getting things done.
@Steve Cottrell: "I would rather have someone with a sense of decency,
honesty. and courtesy...."Good luck with that. Those aren't
typical character traits of politicians.
I have a hard time endorsing Mitt, he is ether part of the deep state or a
democrat. He is not a good representation of Utah. I get it he likes hanging
with his Washington buddies. But he is not doing a lot for Utah, or in
Washington, he is just alot of talk.
I had hope that the anointed Mitt Romney would go to WDC and be a leader at
solving some of our nations problems. My better judgement said he would not.
So far my hope is loosing out. There is still time for Senator Romney to
provide leadership to do some good in the Congress.Even when Mitt
talks about support for Trump dealing with China, Mitt suggests he would do it
differently and describes a plan that has been attempted for several
administrations and has not worked. For crying out loud quit
undermining at every turn and get something for the good of the nation done!
This is a sure thing. Mitt won’t win his own primary next time. BTW,
I’ve voted for Mitt 3 times. I’m sorry.
Mitt's re-election is not a sure thing either.
The Never-Trumpers would rather be lied to politely than told the truth rudely.
Paul Ryan spent his 2 years as House Majority Leader sabotaging "his"
President and his plans. He retires and now Romney gives him leadership of his
annual gathering! Who's on the people's side? Who?
I certainly hope that Trump is not re-elected. I would rather have someone
with a sense of decency, honesty. and courtesy, and who is not sure he/she
already knows everything about everything.
Covfefe in 2020!
What is it that Mitt doesn't agree with? Hundred of court nominees that
hold Utah's values, tax cuts, great economy; deregulation; ISIS defeated;
Jerusalem Capital; NATO countries paying up; much better trade deals. He has
done this with ZERO democratic support and under Mitt's constant criticism,
Trump is the right man at the right time in history to clean up the mess in
our country. No one else could do what he has done, including MItt, who should
go ahead and change parties.
I don't need any more time. I can say for sure I will never again endorse
Mitt Romney for any position. He is more of a Democrat than most Democrats. I
just hope the people of Utah see what a RINO he is before it's too late.
Interestingly, I posted a tame article, and now it's disappeared!Here is the jest of it:Well of course President Trumps re-election is
not a slam dunk. Neither is Senator Romneys.President Trump, almost
single handedly, works on our behalf, I admire that.Senator Romney
is not acting like the tallest man in the room, as he should.
@jimjr: "It is really discouraging that every time Mitt is interviewed he
finds a way to diss Trump."That's because Mitt is a
politician who spend their time yakking. Trump is a business man whose goal is
to get something constructive accomplished. So far he's doing fairly good
@Shaun:"Trump willingly tears down anyone who disagrees with
him."You mean like Nancy Pelosi who sez he should be in jail?
And Chuck Schumer and Barbara Waters who sez he should be impeached?I think he has every right to tear them down... and worse.
Romney has been, and continues to fight for the moral centered side of the GOP.
The side that was so easily lost with Trump. More members of the GOP would do
well to follow Romney's lead rather then Trump, for history books will not
shine bright on the party that openly embraced an adulterer who openly insulted
every person who didn't agree nor identify as him. Making fun of the
disabled reporter during a campaign rally should have been the final straw, but
for some reason you all can over look that.Likewise, some people
have commented that the GOP doesn't do a great job of backing its
president. That is false, the GOP has never had a worse president and still has
managed to back him without fail. If Democrats backed Obama like Republicans
have backed Trump, the policy landscape of the US would be far more progressive
then it stands today.
@Brave Sir Robin:"Everything Trump does needs to be torn down."You mean like...A booming economyConsumer Confidence 18 year
highBlack/Hispanic unemployment record lowJobless claims lowest
level since 1969etc., etc., etc."We can do better than
Trump. I, for one, would like a president who knows the moon isn't part of
Mars."I would like a president who doesn't want America
overrun by millions of unauthorized immigrants. Oh, wait... we've got
one... President Trump.
I do not trust Mitt Romney's judgment anymore. He decries President Trump
through the media with their ready mics.Mitt, I find a lot in just
last week to praise President Donald J. Trump! I just listened to his stirring D
Day speech at Normandy Beach. Stellar! Everywhere he went in London, France, and
beyond, he was received warmly by the Queen, dignitaries, and veterans as he
saluted those who bravely defended freedom in this part of the world 75 years
ago! His words were strong, sincere, and stirring.In the last 24
hours he has negotiated with Mexico to begin protecting our homeland on the
Mexican side of the border and lifted the threatened tariff. Trump leads in
front instead of apologizing and leading from behind as did his predecessor. Please do not use your bully pulpit to denounce our great President. I
suggest you step up and give him credit for all the good he is doing for our
country here and abroad. I read a comment recently, "unlike Hillary
Clinton, who sacrificed our country for her wealth, that the Trumps are a
billionaire family prior to 2016, and Donald Trump has sacrificed his wealth for
the country!" God bless America and our President!
Donald Trump's re-election? With 110% I certainly do hope so!
The man has delivered! Or, at least has tried to deliver all Congress will let
pass. But many in Congress are venomous. Look in the mirror Senator Romney, as
you often oppose President Trump, as opposed to being the tallest man in the
room and standing up for him...
I think Trump would be most happy if Mitt didn't endorse him....Romney
seems to always come in 2nd or worse in any political venture...His turn coat on
Trump in political circles would normally be big news but hardly a ripple as
Romney carries no political clout in ANY political circle. If he jumped to the
democrat side I don't know whether they would accept him or not. Mitt lets
face it...with your E2 founding etc, you are a has been politically.
I voted for Mitt Romney hoping he would support President Trump. I am beyond
disappointed. While Mitt and friends are living it up at yet another
bash-the-President summit, President Trump has actually done something in just a
few days including representing the USA at the D-Day 75th Commemoration and
getting Mexico to finally commit to do something about the thousands allowed to
march across Mexico to gain illegal access to the the US Southern Border--which
is a situation beyond "a crisis" as even President Obama's former
DHS chief admits. Would that former Speaker Paul Ryan had mustered up enough
guts to do something about the southern border with Mexico as he had promised
President Trump. The Republican Party needs politicans who honor their word and
support their party's presidential nominee and President! The Republican
base loves President Trump! It's about time our elected officials
represent us! Senator Romney, remember, the little guy put you in office, but
he/she too may change his/her mind as "not a sure thing" at the next
election. But wait, you promised not to run for another term?
Done with Romney! He's just another McCain. Sour grapes. Live your truth
Mitt and become a democrat.
Mitt, what have you done for Utahn's lately? All I ever hear from you on TV
is bad mouthing our president. Do what you were elected to do and start working
for those who voted for you. Stop advancing your political career by opposing
Trump. We are watching and we vote.
Disloyal mitt is at it again! Doesn't he know that we have a great Leader
who has been Chosen to Lead our country?I have faith that President
Trump will win land slide victories not only in 2020 but also in 2024!
Mitt Romney's re-election is definitely not a sure thing either. Is he
even a republican, or just a wolf in sheep's clothing.
@junkgeek - Agua Dulce, TXJune 8, 2019 1:12 a.m."Romney is has a
moral center. Trump does not. Church members who support Trump are damaging the
Church"Anyone who supports the Democratic party and what they
stand for are damaging to the Church. You are very judgemental in calling other
Church members damaging for following their hearts and spirits. Maybe they/we
were inspired by the Spirit to vote for the candidate that would do the best for
America instead of voting for a candidate just to "make history".
Donald Trump's re-election is 'not a sure thing'. We can only
hope.And kudos to Mitt Romney for being a statesman in the midst of
the majority who favor party over principle. Continued bobble headed support for
all things Trump is doing nothing for the country and it's supposed moral
@Justmythoughts As opposed to trump taking swipes at someone every single day?
I was all behind Romney when he ran for president. I gave sizeable contributions
and put out signs. Never again. He has lost my support. He has played the middle
of the road game for too long. He should get behind Trump. Any other option is
to put the crazy Dems agenda forward.I was not a Trumper. I did not
vote for him. But I will in the future. He has taken on the self-righteous
bureaucrats in Congress almost single-handedly and against great criticisms and
efforts to thwart him. He has accomplished more than any other president in my
lifetime, including Reagan.
Mitt has become an embarrassment to himself.Listening to him sounds
more and more like a Provo based MLM scam.
@tejakaPerhaps Mitt sees HIMSELF as the Democratic "strong
contender" that will be nominated to run against President Trump?None of the current "contenders" has a snowball's chance in St.
I hate comparisons to Teddy Roosevelt. Roosevelt was a progressive, almost in
line with Bernie Sanders when it comes to corporate oversight. People often
reference Roosevelt's "Big Stick" but forget the first and
essential part of that "Speak Softly"... the point being to back up your
position with power, but promote peace and civility. This is why Roosevelt won a
Nobel Peace Prize for negotiating peace between Russia and Japan, and stopped a
German invasion of central America that no one even knew about. Trump is
completely incapable of Speaking softly ever. He's more like Mussolini than
Along side Trump Romney looks better and better each and every day.
Trump's forte is serving as a bad example of what a world leader should be.
Mit's forte is ice cream in the hot sun.
I should have left my ballot blank for the last US senate race for all the good
my vote did. I have so had it with all of these so called conservative
candidates giving us all of this wonderfully sounding lip service only to go
back to Washington and do nothing or try to out democrat the democrats. It has
been said that all it takes for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing
and the RINO contingency has this down to a science in a shockingly brilliant
manner. I did not vote for John McCain, Harry Reed or Jeff Flake for senate
and I really believe this is what I got for voting for Mr. Romney.
Mitt, the one who supported abortion rights, doesn’t like Trump. Go figure
that. He took Trump’s money and support during his failed run. Anyone
supporting abortion rights has no moral credibility, and certainly
shouldn’t be holding himself up as the icon of virtue.
Come on, Mitt. Stop being such a putz. You lost the election because you choked.
No reason to be mad at Trump for winning. After all, he's such an immoral
person, how could he have won, right? I'll tell you what. All those Sundays
in church didn't teach you a blasted thing. Let me put it this way. Either
you're a Democrat, or you're a Republican. There is no middle ground.
Either you support our POTUS, or shut your mouth. You're looking at real
progress. I know you wanted it to be you, but it's not. Trump has mettle.
It's time you recognized that fact, and supported him. I know you're
reading this. Shut up, do your job, help Trump do his, or get out of the way!
Mitt does nothing for you or Utah. Maybe he has in the past, not now. Fake news
and hate or disrespect or misinformation regarding the president only a big deal
when it’s your guy. Trumps probably taken the most advantage for himself
than any president. The only thing that’s been done was tax cuts, which
means they just shifted the tax burden down the pyramid. Your religious freedom
was never threatened. Plus the mueller report that does not exonerate our shady
president, at least the last administration left the country in a lot better
shape from when they took office
The radical right is stirred up into a frenzy!Tsk tsk.
Trump is not fit for the office of president of the US. That is a proven fact.
Who is? Almost anyone else at this point, surely there is someone out there who
loves this country and is tired of watching it slowly going down the drain and
who is willing to stand up for what is right again. Have to give
Romney cred for having the brass to call it like he sees it.
You can always count on Romney to take a swipe at Trump. I think it makes him
look small and petty.
Would be nice if Mitt were to focus less on attention grabbing comments about
the presidency and more on healing the divide in Congress that assures gridlock
while the opioid crisis, the border crisis, China, Korea, the middle east, and
trade all sit on the president's lap with zero help from a "do nothing
but bicker" Congress.
"Romney said if the Democrats nominate "a strong contender,
anything's possible."I wonder who that might be? Bill
Orton? No, he's dead.Sorry, I guess they can't.I would hope that there will be a candidate besides Trump who is not hostile
to the first amendment and freedom of conscience. Perhaps the Republicans can
The original, instant supporters for Trump, like me, who prayed God would
protect America by preventing HRC back in the White House all know: We will be
back with even greater vigor, zeal and support for President Donald Trump! He
is our only hope. Romney proved last election by his misguided,
demoncrat-like treatment of Trump, that via the vote, he will never be.
Cougarbib2 - Moorpark, CA---I see the flaws in Trump. But, here is
Romney whining about how Mexico tariffs would hurt US citizens even after the
tariffs were averted by significant concessions by Mexico.---And what concessions are those. Mexico has already had troops and police at
its southern Border, for years, and has dedicated more in the recent past.This smacks of yet another Trump orchestrated hot air parade, like his
inflated claims about his inauguration crowd size, or now nearly 2 and 1/2 years
of policies and programs that have not brought any form of benefit to ordinary
citizens.Tax reduction offset with tariffs. No medical plan and
gutting the ACA. Breaking up international allies, both military and economic,
for no good reason. The modern world requires the world to solve such issues as
China, or Russian expansionism. Trump is now allowing arms sales to
Saudi Arabia, the country that has produced most of the 911 attackers, produce
Osama bin Laden, and saudis have supported world wide terrorism, and political
assassinations.Reagan's Administration supported the embryonic
Taliban in the 1980s, when will Trump's support of the Saudis come home to
If Romney doesn’t endorse Trump for President Romney won’t be
re-elected for a second term as Senator from Utah.
Remember, Mitt Romney also said recently there is no crisis on the southern
border. Mitt's out of touch, and will likely johnny-come-lately endorse
President Donald J Trump after he wins by an electoral landslide of 400 in 2020
against any of the current weak and slightly crazed democrat hopefuls. How I
and many I know so regret our previous votes for Romney.
The E2 crowd favored Jeb in 2016.'Nuf said.
Romney is has a moral center. Trump does not. Church members who support Trump
are damaging the Church.
Weak leaders: Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, John McCain, Jeff Flake
You know what, Senator Romney?There's a lot of Utahns who
don't care one way or another who you endorse. And I think if
you don't endorse the President of your own party, as Orrin Hatch would
have surely done, that's very telling.
@jeclarOne thing that President Trump is NOT is a FRAUD.A fraud does not make serious and relevant campaign promises and then follows
through on his promises.Perhaps a fraud is someone who runs as a
member of a certain party and does just the opposite of what is expected. And,
who opposes the President of the United States who is a member of the SAME
Wow he is a disaster as a president as a Canadian I hope he is not elected
The problem with Mitt Romney is that he is so blatantly political in his view of
the world that there is no center or core values that guide him. He will not
endorse President Trump because President Trump has core values that are
completing lacking in Mitt Romney. Romney holds these retreats in order to show
some relevance. The truth is that Romney likes to pander to anyone who will
listen to him, whether they are Democrats or Republicans ( establishment
Republicans ). As much as I despised Barack Obama, he did have a set of core
values and came across as genuine. Mitt Romney did not and that is why he lost
the Presidential election in 2012.
It sure wasn't the Russians that convinced me to vote for Trump in 2016 nor
again in 2020. The state of the Democratic party and the RINOs, plus all the
good that He has done for America will get me to vote for Trump again. Starting with Obama, the Great Divider, all the Democrats want is more
division in America. More division, more power for them. Who cares what
mitt thinks or says?
Morality of a President and Presidential candidate doesnÂ€™t
change when that person appears to have been elected when a foreign adversary
was supposedly directly involved in the various processes.Having
lived in various countries that have had tyrannical Presidents, they posted
military armed to question voters how they voted on leaving the polling area. In
some of those countries, the dictators winning end up with voters and citizens
missing after being extracted from their homes, apartments or dwelling by
military members supporting that President. Elections in the United
States of America need to be secure and held sacred as the Founding Fathers
planned in the Constitutional processes.
I would say Mitt Romney's re-election to the Senate is not a sure thing now
that he back-stabbed our President and has shown that he has no loyalty to the
Republican Party. Mitt might as well run as a Democrat since that is where his
I live in CA and lived in Hawaii and voted for Romney. Wasted vote, because no
Republican Presidential candidate has had a chance in those states in a very
long time. I should have voted for Ann. Quite frankly, I liked
Michele Obama better than her husband and thought Barbara Bush was wonderful.
Back to the point I want to make. John McCain, Mitt Romney, and
Flake from Arizona have let this country down at a crucial time.I
see the flaws in Trump. But, here is Romney whining about how Mexico tariffs
would hurt US citizens even after the tariffs were averted by significant
concessions by Mexico. And it is Mexico that should be solving this illegal
immigration crisis. They have a tiny southern border. They should build a tiny
wall and shut the flow of illegal immigrants from Central America and South
America down right at that narrow place between the great land south and the
great land north. In a way, Mexico will be paying for Trumps wall by
bearing the cost of the US not having a wall when they house all of the asylum
seekers they let March right through their country.
I sure hope he's right. Make America better again.
Mitt is nothing more than Mr. Soundbite. He's playing both sides of the
fence with his comments.
We were wondering who the real Romney is. With no desire for re-election, we now
know it’s Massachusetts Mitt. He seems to be relishing being
I don't know how to take Senator Romney's statement. At this point I
don't think anyone who is running for election to the presidency is a sure
thing. I suspect that others will announce their desire to run in the coming
months.At any rate Senator Romney's statement isn't going to
help the President in his running for a second term.
This report confirms why I could not vote for Romney for Senator.
Romney is definitely not getting my vote, Dr Kennedy was a far superior
candidate, I hope he will run again. President Trump stands a better
chance than the Democrats who can’t even come to consensus in their other
party: the republicans. Neither party is doing anything for the average
American. We need to clean house, reinstitute the constitution as written. 4,000
new laws every year that can’t be enforced and contradict each other is
It is really discouraging that every time Mitt is interviewed he finds a way to
diss Trump. Rather than constantly refer to POTUS flaws, try and point out the
positive impact Trump has accomplished on many of the critical issues of our
time...Supreme Court judges, economy and immigration. If he had not been elected
we’d be living in a nightmare right now! Mitt, it’s time to start
being more positive.
No way middle-of-the-road Joe Biden will be the Democratic nominee! Not when
there's a generational revolution underway.
Two of the biggest critics of Pres. Trump - What do they have in common? Clinton
and Romney were not elected president. For them now, winning is not a sure
thing. Pres. Trump is a winner and will continue to win. Make America Great
Again, With the help of the American people Trump will be re-elected.
Two sure things....the sun will come up tomorrow, and pres. Trump will be re-
The most telling remark of Mitt was that "if he had a choice," he would
vote no on tariffs. Both house have abandoned their oversight powers. Even if
you like Trump's policies, we are no longer represented by our
representatives. Sadly, but not surprisingly, neither Utahn senators are
standing up for the integrity of their branch of government. And the fact that
Republicans have not opposed all tariffs (including the imposition on China,) as
they historically have done, reflects this. If you think about it, the are all
@help AmericaThe advice that you are giving to Romney could be
directed at trump.Trump willingly tears down anyone who disagrees
"The government welfare programs are wonderful in intent but fail in
execution."Tell that to a hungry child or a homeless mom with
kids. Tell that to the GI's after WW II that got a subsidized education
and good home purchase terms . Tell that to the many people who put Granny into
a nursing home that is paid for through Medicaid. Tell that the many
Corporations that "lobby" government for favorable tax treatments and
subsidies (welfare for business is not different than welfare for actual
people), Tell that to Mediare recipients, and Social Security recipients who
would have to work till death to live without either. Tell that to the coal
miner in West Virginia suffering with black lung disease. Tell that to these
people and a whole lot more that get help from our federal and state
governments.Are you honestly of the impression that religious,
social or civic organizations are able to fill the gaps that circumstance might
bring upon the most vulnerable of us? What if a needy person lived in an area
with no generous donors, maybe not even the $ to help anyone out? Are they not
a fellow citizen of this country and deserve equal treatment?
Scott Smoot - , UT---Mitt would strongly ENDORSE TRUMP for the
strong pro life, pro-freedom of religion, low taxes, pro business, strong trade,
pro AMERICA, President that PRES TRUMP is! ---But Trump is
none of those things at his core. He is a fraud.I'm not
convinced that Romney's 'outrage' is all that sincere. I hope it
is, because it is clear, Trump's behavior is at odds with not only more
humanitarian issues, but also, at odds with leading elements of the conservative
economic policies, such as 'free trade'. It may well be
that 'free trade' has lead us to this point, but Trump isn't
going to correct that, with some sort of return of manufacturing to the US, nor
is he going to effectively deal with China. He may get some concession, and call
victory. But just as he has not resolve the issues with even North Korea, what
can we expect from any negotiations with the massive power like China has
become?Hopefully Romney will be a leader in a growing number of GOP
politicians who 'Just say NO!'
Were any women "experts and enthusiasts" invited to this summit? There
were 20+ men mentioned in the article but the only women mentioned were Ana
Navarro, who will be on a panel tomorrow, and Mitt's wife, Ann.
Mitt continues to confirm my uneasiness in voting for him in that he was more
interested in taking pot-shots at the President rather than helping him. Why do
Republicans continue to shoot themselves in the foot instead of getting behind
President Trump and helping him move the country forward. We have serious
problems confronting us right now and the President could use a united front
instead of "Rinos" taking convenient shots from a wealthy enclave.
Presidents of both parties have tried the "holding hands kumbia" moments
and look where they have gotten us. God bless President Trump for having a
backbone and doing what is right for the country.
As usual mitt is wrong. Trump is assured to win again. Just lies by the media,
by liberals and nothing else. Mitt is just another John mccant and mitt
isn't assured he will win next time either. So who cares what mitt says.
Oh how I wish Romney wouldn't tease us again with the idea that he is
opposed to Pres. Trump. I am tired of the rhetoric. Romney will oppose him as
long as it does not cost him anything. Conservatives are selling their souls
when the vote for Trump. The Trump effect on future elections is so immense,
the vitriol will be so profane, that our election process may never recover.
Let's hope he's right.
The fact that Mitt write his wife in for President is pathetic. In other words,
“I threw my vote away as a sore loser, and can’t endorse a man who
is stronger and wiser than me.” As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ
of Latter-day Saints, and constantly endorsed and showcased by Deseret News,
you would think that Mitt would strongly ENDORSE TRUMP for the strong pro life,
pro-freedom of religion, low taxes, pro business, strong trade, pro AMERICA,
President that PRES TRUMP is! No, instead Mitt wallows around in circles,
hinting that the democratic socialist agenda could be his choice. Are you
kidding me?! I will be surprised if my comment makes it in here, as every one of
my MAGA LDS friends that write against Mitt do not get posted. Mitt, examine the
choices and swallow your pride. A LOT is at stake here!!
I can’t support Trump, he’s vile ,lies and a adulter. All he
does is tear everybody down and I’m tired of having pay for his golf Trips , and I will be probably back Joe Biden 2020 !He’s hurting
America more than we think.
@help America"The world is tired of you constantly tearing down
your president"No it isn't."you are not
supporting anything good Trump does- you only tear down."Everything Trump does needs to be torn down."That is not what
Utah needs in the press every time we see your name appear."Yes
it is.We can do better than Trump. I, for one, would like a
president who knows the moon isn't part of Mars.
We messed up with giving Mitt voice!
Romney doesn't have to like Trump (who certainly has his faults) but Romney
seems to to be spectacularly petty and smugly delight in criticizing Trump even
when the alternatives are behaving far worse. Does Romney expect to
endorse and help elect Harris or Warren et. al.? Crude and bombastic may be
obnoxious, but they are preferable flaws to infanticidal, socialist, anti-free
speech, religiously intolerant, gender blind/bullying and race warring. So why
should I support Romney in his re-election?

I just finished reading two articles in Sutherland Institute's email
bulletin. It was remarkable to see that a conservative site like Sutherland is
more and more often publishing items that are openly very critical of trump.That is very, very encouraging.
This is not a popular view in our national culture today, but there are societal
and economic benefits to organized religion, of all faiths. Whether it is a
Jewish shul, a Muslim mosque, or a yes, even a Christian church, it should make
sense that when we are in need, it is a better solution to go to those we have
relationships with, our family, our religious community, etc., versus a faceless
government. The government welfare programs are wonderful in intent but fail in
execution. Family and church communities are better equipped to both provide
relief and accountability. In a previous article the Deseret News reported that
religiously unaffiliated adults in the U.S. rose from 12% in 1996 to 25% in
2016. That will have a negative impact on the subject of this article -- upward
mobility. I know it's popular to bash organized religion, and point out
molestation cover-ups, and senior level greed and corruption, which there
certainly are examples, but there is a tremendous amount of good that is
facilitated through religious groups, where people give of their time and money
to help and serve others.
Boy, let's hope he's right.No, let's PRAY he's
Mitt, Mitt, Mitt, why do you have to be the person to always want to have
something negative to say. Didn't your dad tell you if you didn't
have something good to say-then don't say it. The world is tired of you
constantly tearing down your president-you are not supporting anything good
Trump does- you only tear down. That is not what Utah needs in the press every
time we see your name appear.
I would say Mitt Romney's reelection is no sure thing either.
Typical Paul Ryan enjoying not giving interviews. Apparently, he enjoys not
doing a lot of things, like not adequately preparing to debate Biden in 2012,
and not doing anything as Speaker of the House.
