    Mormons aren't Christians, they're Mormons.

    They worship in Mormon Temples,not Christian Churches.

    those issues can NOT be focused on in a presidential platform because they will run a person out of the race

    if you would like to discuss those issues theres MANY threads on them, dont want to derail here

    Thanks for proving my point.

    According to them they're Christians.

    And according to the definition of "Christian" they're Christians.

    Its debatable. Either way you understand what the issue is you are just attempting to be argumentative

    While some scholars, such as Robert J. Art, believe that the United States has an isolationist history, other scholars dispute this by describing the United States as following a strategy of unilateralism or non-interventionism instead.[9][10] Robert Art makes his argument in A Grand Strategy for America (2003).[9] Books that have made the argument that the United States followed unilaterism instead of isolationism include Walter A. McDougall's Promised Land, Crusader State (1997), John Lewis Gaddis's Surprise, Security, and the American Experience (2004), and Bradley F. Podliska's Acting Alone (2010).[11] Both sides claim policy prescriptions from George Washington's Farewell Address as evidence for their argument.[9][10]

    That simple for you maybe. Simple if you are a big federal government supporter. But if you would like to see the federal government reduced to a more balanced position as it was when the country was founded, paul is the best candidate
