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.

ron paul or mitt romney for ldsExamining 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.

    LDS members are counseled to support the Constitution of the United States as a divinely inspired document, set up by God to protect the freedoms, in a Republic, of all liberty-loving people. It is to be a light to the rest of the world as well.

    If we choose men who support in any way Lucifer’s plan of compulsion we are in essence fighting against God. We just have to check their records.

    Remember at the Presidential Debates of all the candidates at the beginning of the elections race, when Ron Paul was speaking on the importance of supporting only Constitutional laws, that Mitt Romney and Guliani were laughing at him? Enough said.

    Read today (19 Jun 09) on Townhall.com that Ron Paul is joint sponsor with Barney Frank on bill to legalize marijuana.

    I had been looking more favorably on Ron Paul in recent months (was stuck in the left/right paradigm during the election). But doesn’t this legislation send the wrong message? Plus, what would anyone want to do with anything Barney Frank was involved in? I’d be afraid to even to shake his hand. Hard to find anyone more utterly loathsome than BF. Why would Ron Paul want to work together with him, the complete opposite of anything lovely or praisworthy.

    Just sends question marks about Ron Paul, that’s all.

    JoeSwiss,

    Think about this in terms of the Proper Role of Government…. The Constitution doesn’t allow the Federal government the authority to ban marijuana in the first place. (If you think it does please point out where).

    “Rep. Barney Frank’s bill would radically curb federal penalties for personal marijuana use”… If you think of this bill in terms of the Constitutional authority of the Federal government, this bill is a step in the right direction…

    WHY? Because this is something that should be left up to the states to decide, and Ron Paul know this. Ron Paul recognizes that each individual State should be the ones deciding whether or not they want to make certain substances illegal, not the Federal government; because the Constitution doesn’t allow the Federal government to do that.

    So, the issue here is not marijuana, but the issue is the Constitution and limit role of the Federal government.

    ( NOTE: I am not in any way condoning the use of marijuana )

    I agree that he’s standing up for the constitution. Back in the day they decided to make alcohol illegal, but the amended the constitution to do it. This time they just passed an unconstitutional law so he wants to get rid of it.

    I have alienated a lot of people, even family, friends, those I love most because i publicly voice my unwavering support for Ron Paul and disavow other candidates even those of my religious faith. He is the only candidate i can reconcile my religious faith with. I am apologetic that my views may seem one sided but they are unwavering I feel that i must be vigilant that we must be vigilant. on Friday the President who is a good man, with bad misinformed ideas, with the support of the legislative, passed with only 7 descenting votes, eliminated by the use of vague terms every part of the bill of rights, the bill is in essence the american version of the Reichstag Fire Decree. “If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.” -Thomas Jefferson How did we elect senators congress men and presidents who trample under their feet the very sovereignty of the American People? In the name of protection and defending the very freedoms they have now striped from us?
