If you think Romney holds no core beliefs, read this:
http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/man … story.html
Habee....You never fail to submit such unique posts and questions. Up front, I must say, I have not been curious about Mitt's "core" beliefs, whether he "holds" them, or he does not. I am not impressed nor interested in his Mormonism, any more or less than I am moved by the religious beliefs of any man or woman, to any degree.
I don't know that knowing, at the age of 19, Missionary Mitt went to France to proselytize while facing angry crowds and trying situations, tells us he will be The President Extraordinaire we desperately need. Nor does it confirm his core, at the present time.
I see the article was written by a lawyer/blogger/MORMON from Wisconsin. I'm sure his loyalty directed him to write something to rebut the negative tale about Mitt as a High School bigot/bully.
Quite honestly, what mature, educated, enlightened American adults did as children, (award-worthy or a bit shameful)is about as vital to the Presidential position, as is, who I attended my Senior Prom with, at age 17, relates to my ultimate career in Behavioral Science.
However, this certainly keeps everyone in conversation. I think the truth is, we're all scared. Very scared.
For me, the article gave me a different glimpse into Romney, especially that he hasn't always lived in the lap of luxury. I think someone would have to be pretty darn dedicated to a cause to be a missionary - even in France.
I felt the same way when I read an article about Obama's mother yesterday. It somehow made Obama seem more human to me.
It is forgotten more often than not, the self realization that we are merely human after all. When it boils down to it, being human and living the life of a human is each of our responsibilities.
I guess that would lead to the question- what does it mean to be human? And that would be argued that no one truly knows. If spirituality is real, then you would have absolutely no clue of ever understanding yourself because your perception will be skewed due to other factors, such as ego.
Is there a universal understanding of what it means to be human and how to live a human life? Sure. All it takes is a little bit of common sense and wisdom.
Knowing what is right from wrong is always skewed by ego. Ego has more power than conscience. For those of you who believe that the conscience comes from your G/god, then obviously I hope your ego isn't in your way, because that will mean you're more powerful than the G/god you seem to believe in. However, whatever response you bring will tell it's own tale.
Each person's own individual level of awareness and understanding of life is critical to how each person deals on a socialized level within society. This is also universal.
fpherj48 your reply sums it up for me. Is he the best the republicans can come up with?
I do not understand at all how a corporate raider fits in with Jesus Christ. How does a church justify that?
"Romney had the right to run his business how he saw fit, but the decisions he made reflect the values he’d live by as president. He had no problem loading up companies like GST Steel with debt and leaving hundreds of Americans without jobs just so his investors could make millions. His current economic agenda is no different: budget-busting tax cuts for the very wealthy at the expense of the middle class."

There is no way for us to know if our morals that we have today is the right ones or not. Our Morals are made out of our "Common Sense".If we don't know if we have the right morals or not, then can we truly trust our conscience when it's based on the society/governmental morals?The common...

RADIO HOST: I’m gonna ask something I know a lot of people want to know, or at least I do. What it is like for you to hear the President of the United States call your dad a liar. How do you react to that? TAGG ROMNEY: Uh, you know, uh, well, jump out of your seat, and you want to...

McCain released two years of tax returns. Reagan released one. Romney has released two. It wasn't a big deal with McCain and Reagan. Why is it now?http://factcheck.org/2012/07/romney-and … precedent/
