It is perplexing to know that Mitt Romney is still out there doing enormous damage to his party. He surfaced in a video interview last week and proved again why he is not the president. At one time he took the losing teapublican approach to immigration. Next, he claimed the party has to do a better job of attracting minorities. He didn’t get it when he was running. He doesn’t get it now. With any luck, neither he nor his GOP train wreck will get it ever.
I would like to thank Mr. Lowell Popham for his response to my letter concerning Mr. Romney’s lack of military service and thank him for his service. I do not think military service is necessary to be president but I do think a person who supports both the war and the draft should be willing to put on the uniform. Mitt Romney is trying to rewrite his own history from having no intention of signing up to “I longed to be fighting in Viet Nam.” I have more respect for Bill Clinton because he opposed the war and was consistent in his belief. President Obama is of a different generation with an all volunteer military and has nothing to do with my views on Romney’s character.
American industry is tarred and feathered for legally “exporting American jobs” to foreign workers while the U.S. Government is praised for supporting the illegal importation of thirty million foreign workers who displace American workers within the USA. Where is the logic in this? When the cost to the American tax-payers is added to provide emergency health care and education for the foreign worker’s families, the comparison becomes even more bizarre.
SALT LAKE CITY — After a decade-long moratorium, Mormon is back. The name, that is.
Mitt Romney’s stance on immigration is not on the same page as his religion. It should be vividly noted especially here in Arizona, the church neither discriminates against the undocumented nor denies them access to a Mormon temple or to any of the ordinances prescribed for adherents of the LDS faith.
SALT LAKE CITY — Tens of thousands of the Mormon faithful are descending on Utah's largest city for their church's semi-annual general conference to hear gospel-centered talks about faith, family and mission work from senior church leaders.
Mormons from more than 400 Valley congregations will pray for rain today during a regional fast prompted by the state’s ongoing drought.
It is interesting that you encourage people to consider not voting for Romney when he did not serve in the military, but went on a two half year LDS mission. I think you underestimate the desire for LDS young men to serve a mission. My son, graduated top of his class, worked hard in sports so he could attend the U.S. Air Force Academy. He received a $415,000 dollar scholarship to the AFA. He worked hard, he was on the dean’s list, was also in the 22 squad (Raptors) which finished first in the school and was able to stand behind President Obama at the graduation. He gave all this up to serve a mission in Chile. That is how important Mr. Romney also felt. He did this with the hope that there will be no major budget cuts to the AFA so that he may return there.
“During the debate Mitt Romney stole Obama’s platform. Now Romney’s heart bleeds for the middle class and calls for shared sacrifice and he’s treated like the Messiah. For years now Pres. Obama has called for shared sacrifice, and he’s accused of class- warfare.”
A few things to consider for those who plan to vote for Mitt Romney concerning his service to his country:
We just celebrated 225 years of the ratification of the US Constitution. This written document contains many wise provisions such as: 1. The Bill of Rights’ guarantee of freedom of speech, press and religion. 2. Equality of all men and women before the law. 3. The principle of popular sovereignty, where the PEOPLE are the source of government, not the other way around. 4. The federal system, with a division of powers between the nation as a whole and the states. 5. The Separation of Powers into three separate branches of government.
“Romney’s quote: ‘47 percent will vote for Obama’ because of entitlements, is right on. That’s why this country keeps getting deeper in debt. Democrats encourage a welfare-state by giving what they don’t have for votes. The Republicans encourage citizens to work for their benefits and self-respect. That’s what makes a society great.”
Supporters of Mitt Romney enthusiastically tout his private sector success as qualifying him to lead our nation. There is no question that Romney was incredibly successful as a venture capitalist, although admittedly he started a little farther down the road than most people could.
SALT LAKE CITY — Mormons struggling with doubt or disaffection can find themselves with a difficult choice: Stay in the church or abandon the faith?
SALT LAKE CITY — Mormon church President Thomas S. Monson urged his faith's followers to embrace the power of prayer and to reach out to people in need.
