For their next exploding cigar, the Democrats chose polygamy.
National Review ^ | April 29, 2012 | Mark Steyn

Posted on 04/29/2012 11:08:47 AM PDT by sdcraigo

For their next exploding cigar, the Democrats chose polygamy...

Just for the record, Romney's father was not a polygamist; Romney's grandfather was not a polygamist; his great-grandfather was a polygamist...

Meanwhile, back in the female-friendly party, Obama's father was a polygamist; his grandfather was a polygamist; and his great-grandfather was a polygamist who had one more wife (five in total) than Romney's great-grandfather.

Obama is the first male in his line not to be a polygamist...

Barack Hussein Obama is a bastard because he was conceived out of wedlock and even his parents short lived sham marriage was not legal because of his father’s bigamy.

I have a life and I dont endorse sin...

as a Christian and a Conservative I cannot vote for the unrepentant sinner and liberal abortion pushing Willard Mitt Romney

I know right from wrong and I know that it would be a sin to vote for that candidate who has spent his life continually legislating or championing evil .....

However since it appears you feel that your conscience is not answerable to God for your actions as mine is...

Nobody is stopping you from practicing your other-than-Christian religion and voting for that pro-abortin same sex marriage piece of liberal trash...

They have to, and they have to remove any restrictions to marriage eventually if they want their support of homosexual marriage to have any logical foundation.

It is self-contradictory for them to argue, “Who are you to prevent anyone from being married? People of the same sex can marry.” To which we argue, “Can two brothers marry?” To which they reply, “Of course not.” To which we reply, “Who are you to prevent anyone from being married? If you can make such restrictions, then a majority can prohibit any same-sex marriage through legislation.” At which point, in order not to be self-defeating and hypocritical (not that liberals have any trouble being flaming hypocrites) they must eventually argue, “You’re right, anyone and/or anything can marry anyone(s) and/or anything(s).”

In this argument of “who are you to prevent...?”, “liberaltarians” are as far to the left as the leftist democrats.

The original problem was government taking over the sacrament of marriage. Marriage does and should belong to the Church, and the state should stay out of it.

Government involvement is the root cause.

You go far enough back in anyone’s background, you will find a polygamist. These days the urge to be married to multiple partners is served by multiple marriages and divorces. I say this not as a defense of Mormonism. It’s silly, and there are plenty of legitimate reasons not to like Romney, as a Democrat or two on this site, and their new found conservative comrades will be happy to point out. ...Go far enough back into someone’s generational past, and you might find all sorts of things, Obama probably had a few practicing necrophiliacs in his past, given what his Muslim Brotherhood buddies have demonstrated in Egypt.

To be consistent with their liberal lunacy, they will have to promote polyandry first, then polygamy.

I’m surprised they havn’t done so already.

It seems like even if we were to have a view that Romney is exactly the same as Obama, there would be a couple of things to consider...
1. The Romney version of Obama would be Robamney FIRST TERM...ie. a version of Obama who would have to worry about winning the next election, as opposed to the original Obama who is termed out and could/would go hog wild.
2. The Romney version of Obama ostensibly needs conservative votes, so is vulnerable to our pressure, whereas the original Obama has no allegiance, even fake allegiance to the right, so no amount of pressure would matter. I am recalling how pressure was put on W.Bush on the immigration issue and on a Justice he appointed. In both cases he caved.

It’s a fact that once you go Mormon and engage in poligamy, you imprint Mormon poligamy onto your DNA. All of your offspring want to have multiple wives and live on other planets. It’s in the DNA!

Why can’t anyone get it?

“For the record Obamas father was a polygamist a communist and a drunk.”

Obama’s father was a polygamist? I disagree. I think his father was a bigamist. If his father married his mother or his other U.S. wife, while in the U.S. and he had a legitimate wife in Africa under British law, wouldn’t U.S. law consider the marriages in the U.S. to be bigamy?

As a Christian, I disagree with your interpretation. Your vote is a choice, not an endorsement. Making the better choice is your responsibility before God. While I certainly agree that both choices are bad, I will honor God by choosing through my vote the least miserable alternative of the two.

If you want scripture -- and you should -- look at David, who had to choose either famine, war, or pestilence. (2 Samuel 24:13). It was a choice among three evils, and David chose what he considered would be the least destructive.

You equate pagan high priest williard Mitt Romney with the God anointed King David of Israel ???

David would not have touched Willie Mitty with a 40 foot ppole..

David would have had him put to death for slaughtering the innocents...

and for introducing the acceptance of unnatural affection between men into the kingdom...

David killed the enemies of God...

He didnt vote for them...

Sluts like the Romneys were just given the go ahead and encouragement by the Mormon religion...

They didnt have to put brakes on their desires and so the didnt...

Godly men are not so...

a Godly man will choose to please God and not his lustful fleshly desires..

Thats why many guyts joined the Mormons...

The opportumity tpo have lots of women wealth and power...

The living conditions of the Mormnons in Utah werre like pigs would like..

sometimes a guy had several women in one little hovel...

or he had a few small houses scattered about like Brigham Toung with his 50 mistresses did..

At least one of Briggies girlfriends starved to death..

When the women got too old and desirable they were rounded up and put in an instyituion a prison where they were out of sight and could cause trouble of embassassment for the “royal” mormon males such as the ancestors of Willard Mitt Romney...

You didnt think the womenb were kept in decent food and clothing after 40 or 50 did you ???

Usually the lusty animal male “grew tired” of them while they were still young ...

after all there were always new young things arriving from Europe every week or so...

amnd SJoeyy Smith and Briggie Young were “entitled” to check out and claim anything in petticoats

The first “entitlement program” in Amertica...

after all Briggie Young was the king and dictator and the government in Utah territory...UT, NV, ID parts of CA

just as Joey Smith had been king, mayor, dictator, and the government in Nauvoo, IL...
