"And this time black people will vote for Obama because we idiots have nominated a racist bigoted mormon with nearly 200 years of the most vile racist teachings under their belt, here is a small sample, the mormon writings are rife with it" A few points: 1. Did you know that it was legal to assassinate Mormons in Missouri from 1835 until 1976? I think Mormons know a thing or two about discrimination and oppression, too. 2. Do you know what the Mormons' position on slavery was? 3. Do you have any evidence of Mitt Romney's racism whatsoever? 4. Is Harry Reid a racist? 5. Please explain people like Mia Love, who is running for Congress.

Mormons still believe that Native Americans are the "Lamanites" of their Book of Mormon, that they were Hebrews that turned from God, and that God made their skin "dark and loathsome", and that when they turn back to God they will become "white and pretty" again. What rubbish. That is still in their Book. Pick up a copy and read it. I have shown that to Mormons, and they said, "Oh, I didn't know it said that". They don't read their own Book!

So. Emilie3, your position is that Romney is a Mormon so he follows everything that is written of Mormonism? The same thing must be believed about Harry Reid. Or is he one of those good Mormons.
It also follows that Obama believes everything his preacher, Rev. Jeremiah Wright has spewed in the 20 years Obama sat at his feet. It also follows that Obama believes everything Bill Ayers believes as well.

No we don't still believe that. But since it was in the original editions of the BoM, and if we were to edit it out you'd accuse us of editing the book to gain more support, we leave it in. The Book of Mormon you see today is exactly the same as it was in 1830.

Or, to make it simple so that your simple mind can process it, we don't edit or revise the text of the Book of Mormon every few years just to keep up with the times.

Of course you don't still follow those old teachings, I have Mormon friends and they are some of the most family oriented, hard working, kind people in the world. I've never seen racism in my Mormon friends.

We Christians no longer, kill people for wearing different kinds of fabrics at the same time, beat our wives, have our slaves bare our illegitimate children or have slaves, sacrifice animals, etc.

Rastafarians believe in absolute black supremacy, who cares anymore?

Well said Dan. We have no reason whatever to fear that Romney will govern using his Religion as a basis for his decisions, any more than we did with JFK being the first Catholic President, let alone the religious beliefs of any of our past Presidents. It has not been an issue then and it doesn't need to be one now.

National Journal’s Ron Brownstein provided an eye opening reminder in a column last week about the impact of changing ethnic demographics on America’s political landscape.

The flashing red light of Brownstein’s message is pointed to the Republican Party.

America is changing inexorably into a country that is less and less white and the Republican Party remains today a party whose base is overwhelmingly white.

Brownstein estimates that Barack Obama could be re-elected this year with as little as 39 percent of the white vote. He notes that in 2008, when Obama won with just 43% of the white vote, it was...
