    I agree, rather these are statists who have taken over the name and run it into the ground.

    I observe liberal behaviors and tendencies. Its not very difficult to do.

    At some point (rapidly) one realizes that the rhetoric does not match the actions.

    Liberals and their taxations and restrictions-those are involuntary. Reference the ACA.
    To clarify, one does not need to pay tithing to be a Mormon. Anyone who has ever been baptized into this church, and who has not subsequently either been excommunicated (which requires one to have committed a far greater offense than failing to pay tithing) nor undergone a specific process of being voluntarily removed from membership in the church, is a Mormon.

    Paying tithing is one of the criteria by which one is judged to be in good enough standing with the church to be eligible for a Temple recommend, or to hold certain positions in the church. There is nothing more done to verify that a member has paid a full and honest tithe than to ask him. I do not know of any circumstances in which any official of the church would ever ask to see a member's tax returns or other such documentation.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    The odd thing is that other nations actually enforce immigration laws. Citizenship in another nation is quite expensive and difficult to obtain-though it is possible.

    Instead of leaving, I prefer to minimize the dangers of leftism here in the USA. Its my country.
