Ron Paul is a better Mormon than Mitt Romney...

I'm from an LDS family who support Romney because he is LDS. They claim to not like Ron Paul's foreign policy. I just found this article I'll share with them.

The article links to this speech by church leader Ezra Taft Benson in 1968. Sounds just like Ron Paul, even defending against the charge of isolationism.

The LDS church also emphasizes avoiding debt, while Romnney wants to increase it. The church promotes self-reliance, even counseling members to grow a garden. I've seen photos of Ron Paul out planting potatoes with his grandkids. Meanwhile Romney is in a country club riding horses.

The LDS church teaches the Constitution is inspired of God, and should be followed. Yet Romney has little interest in it. Here is LDS Constitutional scholar Joel Skousen supporting Dr. Paul, and criticizing Romney in 2007.

I hope people live stream the Utah conventions

I am really looking forward to it. The greatest political debates I have witnessed so far have been between Ron Paul supporting Mormons and Mitt Romney supporting Mormons. I can only imagine what kind of discussions go on out of the public eye.

Does this makes Romney a "MINO"?

Mormon in name only?

Just the title of this post alone gave me a good laugh. Thanks. :)

Joseph Smith Would Vote Ron Paul

Romney is a cultural Mormon, and nothing more. Compare Joseph Smith's presidential platform with Rommey's and Ron Paul's, and you will see that Romney is Mormon in name only. Here's a link to Joseph Smith's platform:
