I did not say the LDS religion was not a cult. I said ALL religions, by definition, are cults.
Please do not put words in my mouth. It only serves to make you look as if you can't comprehend what you read and I then have to explain slowly what I said.
So don't beat around the bush with obfuscating posts. Just admit you're an atheist. Nothing wrong with that. And Mittens still wears magic underwear and comes from the planet Kolob. Just ask him.

I am quit qualified to be an X Obama Supporter. Obama did NOT deliver on every promise and I would challenge you to prove just how he did. Go ahead and I can make a nice long list of broken promises and LIES by Obama so we'll both just have to vote for whom we think is best for the job this time around. And you will just have to learn to deal with things you can't control, like me changing my name, or NOT changing it as it would be.
You never voted all those years!

6-7 -8 elections for president?

Now you say: I voted once for Obama and he did not accomplish every single thing!

WTF!

gave you a list: Obama: ACA -- BEST LAW EVER, saved GM, GM number one in vehicle sales now! Best save and turn around ever!(Mitt Romney said at the time: let GM go bankrupt! Dumb Mitt!)
bin laden toast, got us out of Iraq, built up infrastructure and schools saved teachers, police and firefighters, positive job growth the whole term! Etc.....

Bush lost 8 million jobs! Bush borrowed $5 trillion! To hand out to the richest!

Wake up! Mitt says: do it again.

this thread is not about the paranoia over President Obama. It's about Romney.

Please try to focus.

Why is it that every thread has insecure people who do this? You can be assured that what you're saying hits the mark or they would not have to try this kind of deterrent.

he selectively follows the tenets of his faith. On one hand he says he doesn't want to humbly give quietly and not boast, but on the pther hand, he violates the tenets of his faith by lying through his teeth which makes me wonder if his reason is truthful. If that was the reason, why did it take so long for him to say so? Was is because he finally thought up that excuse sometime after he first refused to make them public? Anyway, he has already told us he made massive donations to the Mormon Church which means the cat is out of the bag and now has no excuse not to reveal more tax returns.
Exactly!

My beliefs have nothing to do with the subject at hand. Nor does Mitt Romney's other than the fact that he used it to lie about why he didn't turn over his tax forms.

Why must you focus on whether or not this person voted rather than give evidence as to why you think Romney should not be elected?

So far you have not given evidence but rather just a repeat of all the prejudices quoted by others.

C'mon. Give us some meat instead of pablum.

<quoted text> I agree with you. I'll also add that I think every person who comes into a welfare office seeking funds should have to have drug/alcohol testing. That would be a lot less expensive than the food stamps that are being traded for drugs and alcohol.
I certainly wouldn't mind being tested if I were asking for a handout. I think of welfare payments in the same way I think of an employer. If your employer can drug test you in order to hand you a paycheck, the government should be able to drug test you to hand you a paycheck. I'm a tough old bird. I'll be 70 in a couple of years and I have seen enough to make my stomach turn with the welfare system. Yet, I am like you and think that no child, no elderly person and no person who is truly disabled should go hungry or without a roof over their heads.
Every time I see a woman with a $50 nail job and 3 or 4 kids under school age handing over a welfare EBT card at the grocery store, my blood boils! Take a pill, cross your legs, do something. Don't keep having children if you can't care for the ones you already have. Our government does not instill responsibility of any sort on those to whom they so willingly hand a check. And if you have $50 to have your nails done and are on welfare, something is drastically wrong!
The drug testing is a good idea in principal.

In reality you will be punishing the children for their parent's ill choices.

It also seems cruel..yet a more likely scenario to give them depopravara. If you can't support the children you have, you have no buisness generating more of them on the taxpayer's dime.

If Bush and Obama can take away our freedoms withthe stroke of a pen. I don't see the issue in having these people agree to stop pumping out kids.

Yeah, yeah...the EBT card...Litterally 3 days ago I watched some guy buy 200 dollars worth of prime rib. I told him "You're welcome"

I just couldn't resist.

<quoted text>So a religion based on Joseph Smith's 1823 visions is not a cult. I guess Scientology, based on L. Ron Hubbards science fiction is not a cult either. Take your pick. Either you come from the planet Kolob and wear magic underwear, or you came from the Galactic Confederacy on a DC-8.
Or, a virgin gave birth to a man-god who defied nearly every law of nature, was killed, ressurected, and acended into the sky. All so we have a chance of not burning for eternity in a lake of fire.

Every religion is just as rediculous as the two you describe above.

Nymph is right. Cults are cults.
