Romney avoids mentioning it, but [Joseph] Smith ran for president in 1844 as an independent commander in chief of an army of God advocating the overthrow of the U.S. government in favor of a Mormon-ruled theocracy. Challenging Democrat James Polk and Whig Henry Clay, Smith prophesied that if the U.S. Congress did not accede to his demands that they shall be broken up as a government and God shall damn them. Smith viewed capturing the presidency as part of the mission of the church. He had predicted the emergence of the one Mighty and Strong a leader who would set in order the house of God and became the first of many prominent Mormon men to claim the mantle.
Smiths insertion of religion into politics and his call for a theodemocracy where God and people hold the power to conduct the affairs of men in righteous matters created a sensation and drew hostility from the outside world. But his candidacy was cut short when he was shot to death by an anti-Mormon vigilante mob. Out of Smiths national political ambitions grew what would become known in Mormon circles as the White Horse Prophecy a belief ingrained in Mormon culture and passed down through generations by church leaders that the day would come when the U.S. Constitution would hang like a thread as fine as a silk fiber and the Mormon priesthood would save it.
Romney is the product of this culture. At BYU, he was idolized by fellow students and referred to, only half jokingly, as the One Mighty and Strong. He was the alpha male in the rarefied Cougar pack, according to Michael D. Moody, a BYU classmate and fellow member of the group...

If Romney wins, this is a good picture of what we are in for.
Ping. Gave you credit above...hope you don’t mind.
The McCain/Palin ticket was up ++8 pts. days prior to September 18th, 2008.
So the RomneyTeam attacked Gov. Palin and her children to throw Election2008.
Romney for Obama in 2008
Late in October, The American Spectator's The Prowler revealed:
"Former Mitt Romney presidential campaign staffers
have been involved in spreading anti-Palin spin to reporters, seeking to diminish her standing after the election.
'Sarah Palin is a lightweight, she won't be the first, not even the third, person people will think of when it comes to 2012,'
says one former Romney aide
'The only serious candidate ready to challenge to lead the Republican Party is Mitt Romney.
"Some former Romney aides were behind the recent leaks to media, including CNN, that Governor Sarah Palin was a 'diva' and was going off message intentionally."
The Palmetto Scoop reported: "One of the first stories to hit the national airwaves was
the claim of a major internal strife between close McCain aides and the folks handling his running mate Sarah Palin."
"Im told by very good sources that this was indeed the case and that a rift had developed, but it was between Palins people and the staffers brought on from the failed presidential campaign of former Gov. Mitt Romney, not McCain aides."
"The sources said nearly 80 percent of Romneys former staff was absorbed by McCain and these individuals were responsible for what amounts to a premeditated, last-minute sabotage of Palin."
aides loyal to Romney inside the McCain campaign, said The Scoop, reportedly saw
that Palin would be a serious contender for the Republican nomination in 2012 or 2016, which made her a threat to another presidential quest by Romney.
"These staffers are now out trying to finish her off .hoping it would ingratiate themselves with Mitt Romney."
"Who's the Palin Leaker from the McCain Campaign?
National Review Online The publication of a Vanity Fair profile of Sarah Palin
appears to have opened old wounds in the McCain campaign.
... the source of the Diva leak was Nicolle Wallaces husband."

Was prompted to look up the ‘White Horse’ reference from the other thread.
There is also a PBS documentary discussed and available here:
Have never participated in the LDS discussions on FR because I am unfamiliar with them - although I found their geneology records helpful in ancestry research;)
The white descendant of Mormon polygamists shall come forth from Mexico and smite the Tea Party and empower the Obamanation of Desolation.
So Romney is the American Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
LOL! But what’s creepy, is that this is probably exactly what he believes. Maybe he doesn’t like Newt’s moon idea because he had planned to ask for the moon as the planet he gets when he dies? (I know the moon is not a planet, I’m just referring to the Mormon belief that Mormon men, like Muslims, get their own planet, well-stocked with nubile females, when they die.)
Ooooh—I like that!
So, if Romney becomes President, he converts the entire country to Mormonism? Just like he did to the State of Massachusetts?
Oh, but you are so wrong.
According to the Founding Mormon Prophet Joseph Smith, the Moon is inhabited by 6 foot tall Quakers.
One thing I like about Romney is the Democrats would never raise issues like this during the general election.
So if Mitt works faithfully to set up a Mormon theocracy, he gets 72 virgins?
Yeah, but he might have to fight off Ahmadinejad to get them...
