haha!As a practical matter, Illuwin, I think your point still stands. I'm sure most politicians, like most people generally, worship money more than they worship their god.
Mormonism ideals are scary, but so are most religious institutions when looked at in black and white terms (as you've stated in your past posts). I voted for Romney in the last round of primaries in Florida, but Florida carried McCaine. I elected not to vote this round of primaries as I thought the results were a foregone conclusion based on the assumption that everyone (except Romney) was not really electable in the eyes of the public in the Florida political landscape. I don't "get" from him a feel that he is a servant of the Mormon church, but could obviously be proven wrong... if he ends up ruling with an iron first according to Mormon law, well, we at least have ways to deal with it in our government!
I think this election cycle will be interesting, last campaign was an absolute marval by Obama in terms of his market penetration. I literally could not escape ads of him on radio, tv, billboards, magazines... even video games (in game advertising in grand tourismo online i think?). If anything, Romney at least has the resources to compete with the Obama donation machine, but I really need to read more into Romneys political ideals and how they stack up before election time (I'm assuming he carries the primaries)
