Good to hear. I wouldn’t have any problem voting for a Mormon who shared my conservative views on what policies the government should have. Not sure why Mormons would want Reid and Romney out there as their most public spokespeople. Seems like they can only do damage to your brand.
Absolutely true. Thing is, there are a lot of LDS people out there who are pretty darn conservative, yet they will vote for a label out of ignorance (the non-knowledgable definition) no different than someone will vote for the guy with the R by his name, or if he’s black, or if he’s a fan of the New York Knicks.
What irks me is that the GOP-e seems to have picked someone who is a liberal moderate, labeled them with an R and thrust him in the limelight as the one we need, why? Because he’s LDS. And since LDS people tend to be conservative... well then he’s going to have a following. I guarantee you that if he wasn’t LDS, he would not have the backing that he currently enjoys. It really is frustrating to watch.
I get the whole idea of getting Obama out of office. I get that it might be better “policy-wise” to put in an Obama-lite rather than have Obama himself. I don’t agree with it, but I get it. The problem lies with the GOP itself, and someone has got to send a message to them that they don’t get to pick who represents us. They don’t run the show.
