Thank you, Ms. Pavlich, for using a little reasoning. Would that the average voter were capable of reading and understanding your logic. The strategy of the consummate Chicago (dirty) politician, is simply to smear Romney with lies and innuendo. Character assassination appeals to those who are not interested in fact, reason or truth. Such people are happy to avoid making a rational choice. They simply hear the lies and accusations, repeat them in venues such as this one and consider themselves political activists. They then proclaim that Mitt can't connect with people, that he only cares about money, and that he is dishonest. They are pawns of the Obama propaganda ministry.

Is there anyone out there who doubts that the Fast and Furious debacle was a product of the new, anti-gun Obama administration and its desire to show through the southerly direction of walking firearms that we must have new gun bans?
Romney wrote a book specifically for this election's campaign. He has a major position paper on economics that provides significant detail on his plans. Why do we not hear from you journalists, especially those who are not captive to democrat dogma, about these plans. I have heard Romney make very specific suggestions for the economy on numerous occasions. Yet you join your voice with the spin doctors to claim he has nothing to say about how to fix problems. With friends like you, who needs democrats?
Byron Dork, you are as dumb as Santorum. You complain because Romney doesn't present a one-line answer (you don't like complex politics) to the difference between an American state and the American nation. What part of states rights in the constitution do you not get? States have been making us buy car insurance for some time now, and if we elect state legislators who insist on attacking free riders and mandating health insurance, the supreme court will have nothing to say. This is the right of a state. The constitution limits what the nation can do by way of interfering in commerce. With republicans like Santorum, who needs democrats or York?

The Bigots Against Marriage Equality

Christians believe God gave us the institution of marriage through Adam and Eve and the teachings of both testaments. The law Moses gave Israel condemned homosexuality, not distinguishing between homosexual promiscuity and "marital singularity." It was all an abomination to Him. But secular society declares itself a better lawgiver than God and says homosexual marriage is the only just institution for our society. What about the cowboy who insists on marrying his horse, to whom he feels passionate proclivities? We will be there soon, if for no other reason than that God found this too an abomination. Smarter secularists feel they know better, so it doesn't take much to predict the downward drift of secularism.

Romney's "flip flop" was when he realized through the stem-cell issue that he could not function as a pro-choice governor. He has been unapologetically pro-life since. His religion doesn't and will not dictate policy to him as the LDS Church is strictly neutral in politics except in issues where the moral aspect cannot be overlooked. The case of marriage as the union of one man and one woman is an example. But the Church has been very influential in Mitt's life, giving him solid conservative values that will not disappoint Bible-belt supporters.

Thank you, Mr. Barber. The anti-Mormonism rampant in the campaign for the nomination led to hysterics that have made the non-leftist segment of the American electorate confused. Romney has been painted by political spin to an extent that few perceive his real preferences and penchants. The Mitt Romney of the book "No Apology" is quite trustworthy. I recommend the book to those who remain uncomfortable with him. Romney's LDS faith is absolutely pro-life. When Mitt ran for the governorship in Boston he knew he could not win in that state on a pro-life platform, so he said he would accept the state's pro-choice bias. That was certainly not because he favored abortion.
Reading his book, No Apology, and following his campaign, I am convinced that Scherz has it right. (Und das ist kein Scherz.) Nice job, Scherz! Obama will not be able to say that Romney is a heartless Republican who doesn't care about people and their healthcare. But conservatives should understand that states are not federal governments. States rights is an important issue which the previous Republican candidates never quite caught on to. The constitution gave states rights and it is not unconstitutional to exercise them. Romney has the advantage of having gained an understanding by working with healthcare issues, rather than memorizing 20 second soundbites.
As a Mormon, please let me agree with you that I have never sought to become poor. But in pursuing material progress, I have always been taught to be honest. If I want to attend the Mormon temple, I must look a priesthood leader in the eye and affirm that I am honest in my dealings with my fellow men. May I also remind you that Romney's tax returns indicate he gives more by far of his income to good causes (not including those of his church) than the aggregated democrats I have read about. When Romney was governor and when he worked on the olympics he did not accept a paycheck. Aber lass das nicht stoeren, und machen Sie sich keine Sorgen, mein lieber Weisenheimer.
When Mormons all lived in Salt Lake City and environs, before radio and television, when people were filled with bigotry and hatred for anything they didn't understand, this kind of invective was expected. Dreadnaught, I hope you have the opportunity someday to visit temple square in Salt Lake City, or have a Mormon neighbor. We have congregations all over the country, but you appear either to be from another century, or to have avoided ever knowing a Mormon. I can assure you that our feelings toward you are totally warm and fuzzy compared to your feelings toward us.
