Will Mormons choose Mitt Romney or Ron Paul ?
The GOP straw poll earlier this year revealed that the top two candidates for President in 2008 are Mitt Romney and Ron Paul. One could easily assume that the huge support for Mitt Romney in Utah is due simpy to the fact that he is LDS, but what about Ron Paul? Ron Paul is attracting many, not because of his religion but because of his philosophies.
Examining the records of both Ron Paul and Mitt Romney reveals some important factors that should be considered. Mitt Romney did some great things as governor of Massachusetts, but he has also supported socialist viewpoints including government welfare and mandatory healthcare. Congressman Ron Paul, also known as “Dr. No”, has an outstanding record of defending freedom with 20 years of voting in congress. It’s up to you to decide which one of the candidates actually stands for the principles of freedom and the proper role of government.
meridianmagazine.com, a popular lds website, currently has a poll asking people which Republican candidate for President they would vote for. It’s no suprise that Ron Paul and Mitt Romney are in the lead, however this time it’s Ron Paul in 1st place.
