Does Romney have a 14-Million-Man Army ready for General Election? (Vanity)
April 6, 2011 | no dems

Posted on 04/06/2012 10:54:37 AM PDT by no dems

Another FReeper, in another posted comment, just this week, stated that his Mormon neighbor was obsessed with getting a Mormon, Mitt Romney, elected President of the United States. That statement has "stuck in my craw" ever since I read it; which begs to question:

If Mitt Romney is the GOP Nominee for POTUS, will the 14 million Mormons in the U.S. mobilize for him during the General Election? Hmmmmm....... Just wondering. The Mormon Church not only has a lot of "foot soldiers", but they know how to "mobilize". They've done it for decades.

Do not underestimate RINO-Rom in the GE. He's hungry. He's been running for the White House for 6 years. He, and the LDS Church have mega bucks. The Marriott Hotel Chain, for example, is a Mormon corporation; just to name one. And, the Primary season proved he will stoop to anything to win. Unlike McCain, he just might be capable of getting as "down and dirty" as the DemocRATS. And, I must say, it's kinda refreshing to see a Pubbie who will not bend over for the street-wise Dems like most Republicans do. Maybe there are some 'nads inside the "Magic Underwear".

If the Mormons unite and spread out all over America to hit the campaign trail for Mitt, I'd suggest that they go incognito; no black slacks, white shirts, thin ties on bicycles. Just sayin'

How the LDS authority or the Mormons, as individuals, can support/vote for Romnutz is beyond me.

Mormons are supposed to believe the Constitution was Divinely inspired. Yet the Progs and Saul Alinsky collectivists want to allow government even further into our lives and assets.

If they do support the Constitution, then Romnutz being a self proclaimed “Progressive” should result in their not supporting him

Betcha they do support him, anyway. Then teh claims and counter-claims will begin.

Suggestion: Buy lots of popcorn.

Ammo and food are also suggested.

They will likely vote for him for the same reason that 98% of Blacks voted for Obama in 2008, but I suspect his socially liberal positions will prevent widespread institutional mobilization.

Sign me up! I am not a Mormon.

I will however delight in Mr. Romney's discomfort trying to 'splain the "racism" in his theology.. brings a little balance to his earlier bragging that his father George protested Barry Goldwater's "racism" in 1964.

George Romney was and Mitt is an establishment Republican of the Rockefeller-Scranton sort. The very ones who said that Barry Goldwater had to be destroyed as a member of the human race. Those dudes play for keeps as you have witnessed Mitt do.

But at least they are a little more apt to support the interest of the United States of American than is Obama.

If he attacks Obama with as much vigor as he attacked his conservative primary opponents, he may have a shot at winning. This remains to be seen.

They would have to do so unofficially, “off the record”, so to speak.

Otherwise they would lose their tax exempt status.

You haven’t been following the caucus threads have you. They are already motivated.

Read the first two chapters of Trish Erickson’s book CAN MITT ROMNEY SERVE TWO MASTERS? available free on Amazon, and you will understand why I’m just sick at what is happening in the primary.

Heaven help us.

Well, I realized this year during the Primary season, after observing Mitt Romney, that apparently, all Mormon’s are not truthful and honorable. Mitt Romney changed my opinion of Mormons. I thought they were all good, moral, honest people. But, apparently not.

A friend of mine is Mormon, they prefer LDS though. Seems a lot of the LDS voted for Obama, kind of wondering if Romney gets the win what that will do.

No. There may be 14 mil mormons worldwide.
No. There may be 6 mil in the US, with only 40% over 18.
No. Only 94% of mormons are supporting Romney so he might have 2.2 mil mormons helping out.

I have some Mormon neighbors that are the opposite - they are uneasy about Romney getting the nomination, because they know full well what the MSM will do to their religion.

I question the 14 million number. First, my understanding is that those 14 million represent the total number of Mormon adherents alleged world-wide - of which six or eight million are in the U.S. (I cannot recall which).

Secondly, this number includes the majority of former Mormons as well, since it is incredibly hard to get off the Mormon membership list when you leave their religion - most ex-Mormons simply don’t bother going through the excommunication process. In fact, I know several ex-Mormons in this category.

Most ex-Mormons who I know will not vote for Romney under any circumstance, including Obama seeking re-election.

Well, I disagree. I’m a political activist. I talk to a lot of people. 95% of the people I speak with who voted for Obama last time will NOT do it again this go ‘round. I talked with a retired banker yesterday who was “deceived” by Obama in ‘08 and voted for him. Now, he cannot stand the mere mention of his name or the sound of his voice. He has lost support among EVERY demographic group in America, including the Black community because he has not come through for the brothas like they thought he would.

BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA IS NOT A SHOO-IN IN 2012!!!

NEEDED: An animation of Mitt Romney like a Trojan horse, opening up small doors ....
and Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and all the other Democrat Communists hacks pouring out of Mitt, taking over the GOP.

If we nominate Romney, Romney will lose.
On another thread, WhiskeyX's analysis is very good on



Very well described!
Maybe it's time we got some DINOs to copy this evil plan against Democrats.
But who would soil their name and credibility, to do such an evil thing against the real evildoers? "

Communists hacks pouring out of Mitt, taking over the GOP.
Let me add this article:



The only way Conservatives will lose to the Kenyan Turd is IF the "Establishment Republicans" REFUSE to support the Republican Nominee.
Now the "Republican Establishment's" hatred for conservatives is well known.
Jon Bershad wrote about Rush's analysis of their PANIC.


How many times has the "Republican Establishment" treated us to one lecture after the other on the need for “compromise” and “patience.”?
After we elect and RE-elect the "Republican Establishment", they conduct themselves with none of the confidence and enthusiasm with which they expressed themselves on the campaign trail.
It may be worth it for the GOP to lose some elections - if it means that conservatives—and the country—will ultimately win.

If we didn’t know it before, WE ... the Tea Partiers, now knows that accepting short-term loss in exchange for long-term gain is the essence of compromise, the essence of politics.

Ironically, we can thank the "Republican Establishment" for impressing this so indelibly upon us!!!
I'm fresh out of "patience", and I'm not in the mood for "compromise".
"COMPROMISE" to me is a dirty word.
Let the RINO's compromise their values, with the conservatives, for a change.

My dislike for the Democratic Party is second to none.
But my ... LOATHING ... for the "Establishment Republicans" ... is even stronger!
The "Establishment Republicans" can go to hell!

“They will likely vote for him for the same reason that 98% of Blacks voted for Obama in 2008, but I suspect his socially liberal positions will prevent widespread institutional mobilization.”

I think they will go nuts pushing him hard, largely because of this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_Horse_Prophecy

A win, with the propaganda spin about ‘saving the nation’ will go far to spreading their influence and bumping their numbers. The GOP would probably like to see this as well, as a body of sober, hardworking, credulous submissives as supporters would be preferrable to to the more independent and critical thinking conservatives. It is easier to shear sheep than cats.

Boy you got that right! I thought the same, until I saw what the gentleman Bishop Romney saw fit to avoid discussing about Mormonism.

Heck, it’s downright eerie some of it, and the racist stuff, well, I guess Obama will let the blacks and his PAC address all of that in the general election.

That will be just a swell watch. /s

LDS has money and an army and will go "all in" for Romney.

Anyone who does not realize that this is obviously so simply does not understand the Mormons.

Romney as President starting in 2013 would be the biggest thing ever for their church and they know it.

They will do whatever they can to make it so.

My bad. You are correct. The article I read was ambiguous; sounded like 14 million in the U.S. But, you don’t have to be over 18 to pass out literature, put out yard signs, etc. I read one place, where Mormons all over the world would be sending money to the U.S. for his campaign if RINO-Rom is the GOP nominee.

I was remiss in not remembering that I am a geezer well into my 70s. Not everyone knows that Rockefeller-Scranton Republicans is "code" for internationalists -- at least IMO as I recall the 1964 election.

I had no idea that what I typed in would be thought a disparagement of Mormons. That was not my intent.
