|If Elected, Mitt Romney Would Become America's First Mormon President|

Parallels to America's Future
Now the Mormons have a prophecy which many (not all but many) hold to be true, and it goes something like this. 'Joseph Smith, the prophet, was inspired to affirm and ratify this truth, and he further predicted that the time would come, when the Constitution of our country would hang as it were by a thread, and that the Latter-day Saints above all other people in the world would come to the rescue of that great and glorious palladium of our liberty' (Conference Report, October 1912, p.10). As I said, not all Mormons agree on this, but a fairly large number of them do. Mitt Romney has been asked about this specifically, in reference to the notion that he might be the representative of the "white horse" of Mormonism that Joseph Smith referred to in his so-called 'white horse prophecy.' Romney wisely dismissed the notion that he thought of himself in any such way. He did not however dismiss the prophecy itself. Undoubtedly, if elected, many Mormons will view Romney as the fulfilment of the 'white horse prophecy' and see our current times as those Joseph Smith spoke of 'when the Constitution would hand by a thread.' Of the latter portion about the Constitution we cannot deny. Indeed it is hanging by a threat and has been for some time. As for Romney being some kind of 'white horse' representative of Mormonism that is destined to save America from the abyss, well perhaps it's time the Mormons had their way to see if their so-called 'prophecy' comes true. Perhaps if America sinks with a Mormon at the helm, they may come to question some of the other teachings of Joseph Smith as well.
Many things may happen in the next president's term, regardless if it is Romney or Obama in the Whitehouse. A middle-eastern war between Israel and Iran seems almost certain to play out now, either under Obama's administration, or Romney's administration, depending on if/when Obama takes us to war before the election. While Iran will certainly take a beating like nothing its ever seen before, we have to remember, these are the Persians we are dealing with here. It's going to be a little different than Iraq. These people aren't going anywhere, and they sure as hell are not going to easily submit to some Western power (especially the Zionist state). There is going to be some blow back, and there are no time limits imposed on that. The Persians may have the means to react quickly, say within a year, or slowly within ten years, but they will hit back and it will be hard. Nine-eleven 2001 was a direct Sunni Fundamentalist response to the Persian Gulf War. It took them an entire decade to pull off their revenge on the United States for interfering in Arabian politics. Likewise, the Iranians will do the same, but I don't think it will take them nearly as long to pull it off. Meanwhile, the war itself will cripple the United States financially, while Israel will find itself in even a more vulnerable position as the entire Arab world will be enraged by their attack on an Islamic Republic. The eventual fall of Israel is almost certain, if not sooner than later. It will cause a Second Holocaust in that region, which is unthinkable, but here at home it will disrupt the Dispensationalist faith of millions of American Evangelicals. This of course provides a huge missionary opportunity for Catholics in the Midwest and South (Dixie) but that can't happen if a Catholic is at the wheel of this sinking nation, and the Israeli Holocaust happens under his watch. He will be blamed for the catastrophe, and the Catholic Church will be seen as the agent behind it all. This is the typical Evangelical tripe we get from them all the time. Remove a Catholic president from the equation, and all of this goes away. Either Romney (the Mormon) or Obama (the ???) will get the blame, while Catholics are free to do what Popes John Paul II and Benedict XVI have been calling us to do all along -- EVANGELISE!!!
