I think the question should be which one's political philosophy best resembles Scripture?

Ron Paul is the only one I would consider voting for.

If he weren't running, I would not vote at all. Well maybe, if I thought my vote might keep Clinton OUT.

God Bless

I think that James L. Kilgore would.

Besides him, probably brother Mooney. He does look presidential too, don't you think?

But, I know what you are asking. I doubt that any of them are very godly but besides that, I believe the best choice of those who still have a chance to win, Romney might be the best. At least, he has my support...and vote if he gets the nomination.

What political philosophy is represented in Scripture? Rabbinical scholars in Israel believe that socialism is the most biblical of political philosophies, that's why Jewish religous authorities support Israel's socialist government with it's universal health care.

Personally, I believe that the Bible's political economic philosophy would be more Distributist.

Any form of socialist distribution is stealing by the state....hench wrong. Scripture in no wise ordains mandatory 'giving' by the rich via the state.

Barack Obama Is Church of God,they believe in the gifts of the Spirit but don't baptize in Jesus name.
Mike Huckabee is baptist,they don't believe in gifts of the Spirit and don't baptize in Jesus name.

Here is my problem Romney

--Romney signs "Right to Privacy" Proclamation celebrating birth control availability(this includes the right of public schools to provide children with it without parental consent or knowledge)
--Gov. Romney has a long history of promoting and furthering the homosexual agenda, and working closely with leading gay activists
--Romney twice sought and received the endorsement of the homosexual Log Cabin Republican Club
--Romney's campaign distributed pro-gay rights campaign literature during Boston's "Gay Pride" events


Image Insert (11.66 KB):


--Romney advocates homosexual couples' adoption rights be recognized by the government
--Romney supports homosexual domestic partnerships
--Romney supported and promoted legalizing homosexual civil unions
--Romney Opposes the Boy Scouts' Ban on Homosexual Scoutmasters. Romney barred Boy Scouts from public participation in 2002 Olympics. (this had never been done before and has never been done since by any governor)
--Romney appointed prominent homosexual activists and Democrats as judges
--Romney Rewards one of the State's Leading Anti-Marriage Attorneys by Making him a Judge
--Romney's Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth used huge taxpayer funding to promote homosexuality in the public schools


Image Insert (20.7 KB):


--More recently Romney proposed allocating $250,000 for the Governor's Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth for fiscal year 2006
--Romney's Commission organized public gay "Youth Pride Day" parades and "transgender proms" which promote unhealthy and risky behavior
--Romney's Department of Education promotes the homosexual agenda
--Romney opposed federal legislation that would stop public schools from promoting homosexuality
--Romney refused to endorse the original 2002 Mass. constitutional amendment absolutely defining marriage as one man and one women
--Romney unnecessarily (and unconstitutionally) implemented homosexual marriages in Massachusetts
--Romney had marriage licenses changed to allow same-sex marriages
--Romney administration ordered Justices of Peace to perform homosexual "marriages" when asked - or be fired!
--When requested of him, Romney personally issues special one-day certificates to allow otherwise unqualified people to perform homosexual "marriages"
--Romney imposes "socialized" health care on Massachusetts
--Romney's plan, which is backed by such liberals as Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, Mass.), is being pitched as a compact between citizens and the state.
