Ron Paul is a better Mormon than Mitt Romney...Submitted by djinwa on Sat, 05/12/2012 - 17:46
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.
