We cannot understand Mitt Romney until we start talking about Mormonism. By taking his religion out of the conversation, we miss everything he stands for.

Romney isn’t simply running for president; he thinks he is fulfilling a basic prophecy he has been taught all his life.
It is said by LDS leadership that when the Constitution is in dire peril, someone will come along who will wield awesome political and spiritual power. This mysterious priesthood elder will somehow seize control of the US government. He will assume total power and create an LDS “Kingdom” in America.

Mormons have been positioning themselves in government for decades. A disproportionate number of FBI agents, CIA agents, State Department people and other government officials are loyal LDS.
Part of the strategy of the LDS leadership is to invest in very powerful and influential holdings. Unlike most churches, they own TV stations (local network affiliates). They own power companies. They have made a concerted effort to buy up thousands of acres of farmland, orchards, etc. under their many “dummy companies” because their view of the end-times.
They plan to take care of their own.
