This is a political page for Latter Day Saints (better known as ‘Mormons’) to support 2016 Republican Presidential candidate Donald J. Trump. We are not sanctioned/endorsed/affiliated with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am just a lay member expressing my political opinion as is my right to do.
No one person is perfect for the job of leading the United States of America and while that choice is often posed as “picking between the lesser of two evils”, we’re here to show that Donald Trump is the most sensible and realistic pick for Mormons to choose this November.
One thing I want to be clear is that I am in no way making a claim that Jesus would vote for Trump or any other candidate. Christ has given us our agency as peoples to choose but to imply that he would directly install every head of government on Earth doesn’t really pan out when you look at the dictators of world history as well as those out in modern world society. I think that entire notion is an absurd hypothetical that is pandering at its worst. Sure, we can make the assumption as to the type of leader he would prefer for us to have but if you need help making a decision on your vote, study from good sources, ponder it and pray. Don’t just take Christ sayings out of context and apply that to your confirmation bias.
I myself am by no means perfect and have plenty of faults that I need to work on – I won’t make the claim that this site will be 100% perfect but I will strive to present the most accurate information possible. Having been born and raised as an American and a Mormon (coming from a early pioneer heritage, including Parley P. Pratt), I fully believe in D&C 101:77 & 80 which state:
“According to the laws and constitution of the people, which I have suffered to be established, and should be maintained for the rights and protection of all flesh, according to just and holy principles;”
“And for this purpose have I established the Constitution of this land, by the hands of wise men whom I raised up unto this very purpose, and redeemed the land by the shedding of blood.”
In the case of the 2016 US election, Donald J. Trump is the best man for the job and that’s what I hope to lay out on this site.
