Re: Utahns, how excited are you about Mitt Romney

I'm curious about "lowering taxes" being the prime thing mentioned here, and not actual numbers. So if in one state, taxes go from 7% to 7.1% to 7.2% to 7.3%, and in another state taxes go from 7% to 20% to 19.9% to 19.8%, will spending be higher in state #2, because in 2 of 3 years taxes were cut?...

Re: Utahns, how excited are you about Mitt Romney

.... Romney goes on to say this: "In many cases, lowering taxes can actually increase government revenues. If new businesses, new investments and new hiring are spurred by the prospects of better after-tax returns, the taxes paid by these new or growing businesses and employees can more than make up...

Re: Utahns, how excited are you about Mitt Romney

... I am not aware of any evidence that lowering taxes brings more tax revenue in than the tax cut caused. You need to study more. Forbes article - "In simple terms, when taxes are cut, Federal revenue has a very strong tendency to rise! And when taxes are raised, government revenue has a strong te...

Re: The Constitution and the LDS Faith

That was when the Mountain Meadows Massacre occurred, at the cost of 120 civilian lives. The darkest shame in LDS history. At the end of the "War", the same outcome happened anyway, with Brigham Young being stripped of public office. Again, do you have a point, or are you just reciting common histo...

Re: The Constitution and the LDS Faith

Lol You really don't know do you? Stunning. After the Saints migrated to Utah, Pres. Buchanan sent the U.S. Army to the Utah Territory to quell the so-called Mormon Rebellion. Became known at the Utah War. Pres. Buchanan sent General Albert Sydney Johnston wit 2,500 troops to crush the Mormon Rebel...

Okay...
And?
It does not matter that you lack understanding. You did not know or understand why the Nauvoo Legion was created. You did not know or understand the Nauvoo Legion continued to exist after their charter was cancelled. Never mind.

Re: The Constitution and the LDS Faith

The Nauvoo Legion was disbanded by the state. It never protected the Saints from mobs, nor did it protect brother Joseph. I'm not sure why it was even brought up. You missed the point. The purpose for WHY the Nauvoo Legion was created. To protect the Saints against the hostile mob. It was created b...

Re: The Constitution and the LDS Faith

24 years after the restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ began, Joseph Smith was sitting in a jail in Carthage, Illinois with his brother Hyrum, John Taylor, and Willard Richards. It was June of 1844. The Smith brothers were in jail to face charges for ordering the destruction of a local newspap...
