Apparently there is a small movement of LDS supporters for Ron Paul:



This DVD was left on all of the conregation's windshields while we worshipped in church yesterday.

The Church frowns on this.

We never endorse any candidate, this is why some LDS support Harry Ried, have supported Morris Udall in the past- both prominent Democrats.

A lot of Right Wing extremists have been excommunicated from the Church along with Left Wing fanatics.

Ron Paul is a nusance.

First of all, I wasn't only talking about Ron Paul. I meant Dennis Kucinich also.

Second, I said the media is biased, not Americans, and this you and I agree with.

Third, I said Americans are stupid, yes, but I never said that they are stupid because they doubt Ron Paul's truth. Let me explain here. What I meant was that many Americans are stupid when they support a candidate purely because they: have a popular name, are good looking, are young, are a woman, are black, are an actor, are Christian, are the wife of Bill Clinton...without knowing much about the issues at all, and that is where the stupidity is.
Actually, you did say that. Whether you meant it or not, you said Paul's not getting elected because Americans are stupid and the media is biased.

Second, it's stupid to claim that any politician "speaks the truth." I think there are politicians that are more honest than other, but it's pretty much impossible to be a politician and be truthful. It's not how the game is played. It's unfortunate, but it is the truth.

Now, what are your thoughts on Americans who have researched the issues and think Paul is full of shit or, at the very least, isn't a smart choice?

Actually, that is not what I said. But let me clarify: Many times Americans support candidates for the wrong reasons, as I listed in my earlier post, and that is stupid. This, along with the medias bias against people like Ron Paul or Dennis Kucinich is the reason that these candidates don't have higher support.

When I said speaks the truth, it wasn't stupid. I think its pretty stupid to take what I said literally. Of course there has never been anyone who speaks the truth 100%. But there are many candidates who speak such bullshit and are popular or get applauds when they say such things as "our soldiers are fighting hard, let them win" (something McCain would say).

On Americans who have researched the issue and still don't support Ron Paul or Dennis Kucinich, I have nothing against them. As long as they are not supporting a candidate for a stupid reason.

You act as if my point is to draw support for Ron Paul when I actually brought the issue up about candidates on both sides who don't get media attention and about Americans who vote for the wrong reason. It is sad that candidates such as Ron Paul, Dennis Kucinich, Mike Gravel get little or no attention from the media and Americans alike. I think i've made my point, and I won't debate further on the issue.

Apparently quite a few of the Mormon society are leaning towards Paul...

I have a few outspoken LDS fans on my music MySpace page that send out bulletins on quite a regular basis.

I found this one to be interesting(in a weird car wreck kind of way):

not quite a few, in proportion to the Church population, but a small sliver or contingency.

there are also a contingency supporting Obama.

You need to understand that the Church has conservative members, liberal members and moderates and endorses no polictical philosophy or candidate.

Were it not so Morris Udall and Harry Reid would have never been elected.

The Church teaches a concept called free agency ( free will) and personal revelation where you make your own decisions peritent to your own lives, with the help of God's spirit.

Thanks for the lesson...

Ok, then it's a very tiny yet loud and well organized sliver.

No in FYM, but I'll illegally get a Republican ballot and illegally vote for him hundreds of times if that will help Romney lose

Yep that's right dave- how very ingenious of you-and I could name some of your "similar temperaments" but I won't, don't find it necessary. Knock it off.

In case you didn't figure it out it was complete hyperbole, saying that I would do that with the voting. Don't need to of course, Romney will take care of his own defeat perfectly well as will the perceptive voters.

Elect minds? Are those the kinds that have won the vote but haven't actually become real minds yet?

He flip-flops far more than his hair does. I don't think it's moved at all since 1974.
