It is not just oil that travels through the chokepoints. How many items in your home were made in china, India, Taiwan, etc. Things like iPhone/pad/pod, or clothing (most are sewn in Asia). Any US exports also have to travel the seas unless they are going to Canada or Mexico. Do you like fresh fruits and veggies in the winter? Those are usually grown south of the equator in countries like Chille and Argentina, and arrive in the USA by ship. There are many aspects of our very comfortable middle class lifestyle that depends on international trade.
According to Obama, "the world is safer now than it was 4 years ago" just like "the middle class is doing fine." And he claims that he doesn't need to hear the PDB in person since he can read it. Has he been reading it? We can't afford another four years economically or security wise.
Christi's sacrifice is sufficient for our salvation. However. We must prove our acceptance of his life, teachings, and sacrifice through our obedience to his commandments. It is not enough to say we believe we must prove to ourselves by our works that we believe Christ, and accept his atoning sacrifice.
I am neither misleading people, nor am I ignorant of my own religion. I admit that the teachings of my religion differ from most other Christian religions. The meaning of words changes over time. Ever try to read Shakespeare without a modern translation? Shakespeare lived only 400 years ago, Christ lived 2000 years ago and spoke a different language. I believe that the Mormon interpretation of the bible is the only accurate one, we have an additional book of ancient scripture (The Book of Mormon) that was translated into English less than 200 years ago that clarifies the teachings do the bible. We also have a living prophet that continues to receive revelation. I believe that the Christ I worship is the same one you do.

As a Mormon I know that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. We believe He is who He said he is. He is Jehovah, the Messiah, the creator of heaven and earth, the Redeemer, the Savior of the world. When asked about his beliefs in Christ, Mitt Romney stated that he believes that Christ is his personal redeemer.
These days federal worker salaries would probably have to be cut to minimum wage to get them to quit. It is just too hard to find a job to give up a steady paycheck.
The federal government has no business in school cafeterias.the preamble (translation: mission statement) of the constitution states as the purposes of the federal government "...to form a more perfect union, establish justice, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare..." Promoting a healthy diet is a far cry from mandating meal contents. Let the states, or better yet the parents and local school board decide what should be served.
Correction: Edutopia has also featured some schools in other nations.
A great resource for fixing schools the right way is Edutopia.org. I first learned about this site when my kids' school was selected for filming. Edutopia finds schools around the country that work. High test scores and graduation rates. They then interview students, teachers, administrations, etc to find out what the school is doing to make it so successful. The school my kids were attending was among the poorest in terms of $/student, but has a very high success rate. I recommend that all that are involved in a school system take a look at what works, before throwing more money at a school.
