Vote for Mitt!!

Let's support Mitt in online polls!!!

GOP Bloggers Feb Poll (Just posted yesterday; Mitt currently trailing Giuliani and Gingrich) . . . I think this can be done daily.

Pajamas Media (click on "Voting Booth" near the flag graphic)

Free Republic (Mitt Trailing there among the VERY conservative crowd there)

2008 Horserace (2 votes per URL. Romney trailing only Brownback among the GOP field, and only by 20 votes)

The Krusty Konservative (Iowa blog with Huckabee in the lead)

Any other significant ones I missed?

One other site that we should all be stopping by to vote at:
Even though he is supporting Guilliani, maybe we can convince him he chose poorly. There is a great crowd to be won over on that site.
The poll is on the home page I believe.
His 2008 stories page is great for finding articles about Mitt too!
Keep up the good work!

First of all, as a traditional Baptist, I was stunned after viewing a movie called "States of Grace." A friend of mine from Utah sent it to me for Christmas. In spite of everything I have come to learn about Mormonism, here is a movie – a Mormon movie nonetheless – that demonstrates a deep understanding of -- and longing for -- unconditional grace and forgiveness through a personal relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

In my opinion, it movingly depicts the power of God's healing love and redemptive grace that comes after a fall and repentance. It not only shows the heart of Christianity, but it convincingly challenges the stereotypes that many of us traditional Christians have of Mormons and their belief in only conditional grace.

Second of all, I love my country and the constitution it was founded upon. The only person I believe will stand up for those beliefs is Mitt Romney – a.k.a. The “Mormon Candidate.” I will say that it would have been hard to pull the lever for a Mormon until I had a few questions cleared up for me. I believe this movie can be a landmark film in presenting a view of the Mormon church and Mormon life that has never before made it to the big screen – answering simple questions such as polygamy (by far the funniest scene in the movie), interfaith relationships and Mormon beliefs concerning grace.

Many, and I do mean many, of the Mormon beliefs and doctrines I disagree with, but I don’t want a country ran by Pres. Clinton II, Obama, McCain or even Giuliani. I believe Gov. Romney is a Christian who shares my most important values. Now more than ever, we Christians need to pull together and I believe States of Grace can be that elusive element that brings us together. The movie is extremely thought-provoking and very educational for many in America who don’t know much beyond popular rumor about the faith of the man who just might be the next president. In short, this little film has the potential to actually shift and mold public opinion in a presidential campaign without being a political hatchet job like Fahrenheit 911. It should be required viewing for the entire Christian community.

My question is this – With all the stereotypes and misinformation out there about his beliefs, why hasn't anyone put this movie out there to help him? I would have to say I have never felt closer to Mormonism, and Christ's message of love, redemption, and hope, than after viewing States of Grace. You have a tool to answer the questions that would help me pull the lever for Gov. Romney, and you’re not using it.

I emailed “Evangelicals for Mitt” and they’ve never heard of the movie. I emailed a website called and they dismissed me. I found more information on this movie at

I hope you care enough to do something about this – or I’ll find a way to do it myself.

Your Brother in Christ,

p.s. I hope you have some sway with the powers-that-be in Salt Lake City because I couldn’t even find “States of Grace” at Wal-Mart – and they carry everything.

Thanks for your kind words mark. I have not seen 'States of Grace' but we LDS do believe in God's unconditional love and that all mankind can access the Grace of God.

Very passionate words, I hope to see the movie soon. Mitt Romney will grow to be loved by many... and hopefully elected. I love watching him progress through the mine field.

Have not seen it either . . . sounds very interesting.

One of my favorite verses from the Book of Mormon states "for it is by grace that we are saved after all that we can do."

Some people misread this to mean that the doing will get us there and automatically qualify us for His grace. However, the "doing", by in large, IS the ACCEPTING His saving sacrifice and living according to His example and commandments. For without His grace, we surely are all lost.

Thanks again for sharing!
