Who will be the next Republican President? Will Mitt Romney win in 2012, or will it be Sarah Palin? This is a difficult question for me to answer. I heavily supported Mitt Romney in the 2008 election. However, I also happen to like Sarah Palin.
If both Mitt Romney and Sarah Palin turn out to be Republican presidential nominees in 2012, it will be a difficult decision at the CONSERVATIVE WORDSMITH.COM headquarters (which consists of one person only: Conservative Wordsmith Susan Baldwin) as to which candidate will receive public support.
You can be sure of one thing though, and that is that my decision won't be based on the fact that Mitt Romney calls himself a Mormon (Latter-Day Saint) and Sarah Palin refers to herself as being a Christian.
I will not, as many conservative Christian voters decided to do in the 2008 presidential election, base my support or vote on a candidate's religion, as this violates Article 6 of the United States Constitution (the "no religious test" clause).
If those same conservative Christian voters had put aside their concerns about Mitt Romney being a Mormon believer, and not a Christian believer (even though many Latter-Day Saints claim to be Christians), and focused on Mitt Romney's conservative values, who knows what might have happened in the 2008 presidential election? Perhaps Barack Obama would never have become the U.S. President. Would that have been so bad?
