In a recent appearance on The View, Ann Romney, who is apparently as much a Mittwit as her husband, claimed that Mitt and their sons having gone on Mormon missions to
shove their religion down our throats proselytize about the Church of Latter Day Saints is the same as serving in the military. That’s like saying little girls in girl scout uniforms selling cookies door to door is the same as serving in the military.
When pressed by Whoopi Goldberg on how Romney would explain why neither he nor any of his five sons served, Ann explained that the six men found “different ways of serving” by going on their Mormon religious missions.
“So, you know, we find different ways of serving,” she said. “And my husband and my five boys did serve missions, [but they] did not serve in the military.”
The substitution, she went on to explain, makes sense because the two share essential, character-building and altruistic values. Read more at salon.com
Really! I had no idea those bicycle riding white shirt and tie wearing young men ringing doorbells and annoying people were putting themselves in harm’s way. I’d like to see the statistics on how many Mormon missionaries come home in body bags, missing limbs, suffer from PTSD, or many of the other multitude of maladies endured by our troops that have been to war. How many Mormon parents have received the unthinkable news that their child won’t be coming home from their missions?
We should all be offended at Ms. Romney’s ignorance and insensitivity towards our troops and their loved ones. How dare she make such a comparison!
If Romney wins the White House will he be proselytizing and or sending out missionaries to spread the word? Will this constitute his foreign policy? Could this be why he wants to increase the budget for the military?

An Open Letter To Candidate Romney (OP-ED)September 18, 2012
Dear Mitt Romney:
I saw your video.
I saw you speaking candidly and off the cuff about me. Don’t get me wrong, I know that you didn’t mention me by name or anything, but we both know you were talking about me.
When you were talking about 47% of the population that is never going to vote for you because we are “dependent victims” who lazily live on government programs like food stamps, I can’t help but take personal offense. In fact, once you decided to lump in anybody who is never going to vote for you, you weren’t just talking about me, but many people I love, and about 90% of the people I know.
My children eat because of food stamps, Mr. Romney. Now, sir, I want you to picture a Wyoming cowgirl: a mother, a fighter, a righteous, determined, God-loving woman. A Rocky Mountain Grizzly Bear Mamma that would make Sarah Palin’s makeup-wearing pit bull shudder. Picture me staring you in the eyes as I ask you, “What business have you got talking about me and mine like that?”
I am watching you run your Richie Rich mouth on TV right now, with your little flag lapel pin over your heart. You brag that you will bring “12 million new jobs and rising take home pay.” Quite frankly, I have no reason to believe you or your failures in arithmetic. Even if you did manage such a feat, I’d point to the 4.5 million job head start you had thanks to President Obama saving the nation from the failed GOP policies which you use as a platform, and which nearly caused a second Great Depression.
You said that you think that 47% of Americans “think they are victims” and you even said it wasn’t your job to worry about us. the rest of the letter
