So what's the big deal, I am a Mormon all Mormons are brainwashed and do what whatever they are told right? Well, I have heard these things and find it quite funny that anyone who actually knows our church knows it's all about choice. God gave us all the freedom to choose. Now we can't choose our consequences which makes us very unhappy when the outcome is less than desirable like the extra 5 pounds I gained after a summer of frivolous eating! I digress, so it wasn't a slam dunk for me to vote for Mitt. Why? Okay, I am ultra-conservative. He did a fantastic job with the Olympics, he saved the day! Read about it if you didn't know. But he tends to be more compromising than I feel a conservative should be. Maybe that makes him a good fit. He is willing to listen and work with others who have differing opinions. It's not that I am not willing to listen I just want the government to keep to their role: protecting my rights and freedoms not taking them away through taxes and over regulation etc...I would say I am almost Libertarian except for legalizing illegal drugs and foreign policy. So Mitt has some great leadership qualities that we need as a country. He understands the corporate world and the economy. He also has had to run a budget in a state as a governor so he gets that whole process. I am not really sure about Obama. He served in the senate one term and was a community organizer. So far he is showing no real leadership. He has divided more than gathered us to work together to solve our problems. His solutions are more spending and taxes, sorry but what happens when the well runs dry? We need less spending and less regulation. Then companies can feel confident in hiring more people, investing in new ideas, etc. It works, look at post-Jimmy Carter up until the mid/late 90s we were very prosperous.
It actually doesn't matter much if I vote for Mitt because he will get the Utah votes. So I can only pray that good people everywhere will think and if they are the praying type, pray about who to vote for. I pray for Mitt and his family because the media is going to step it up. He is the underdog in a sport where the referees (the media) will side with the home team (Obama). He and his family have already been attacked with terrible lies and hearsay. You can tell they are nervous, by the outrageous things they are saying. Unfortunately this is all some people read or see. So it's really in God's hands and if we deserve better we will get a better leader if not we will reap the unfortunate consequences of an inexperienced leader. May God bless America in November.
