My interest shifted away from Chris Keniston to Evan McMullin for President. Even is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, worked for the C.I.A. and a BYU graduate. He is running as an independent.
Evan is Johnny-come-lately, but his popularity is rapidly gaining.
What I Like
What I like is he is a true conservative (in the political sense). Trump, Clinton and Johnson are as liberal as they come politically. Johnson and Trump have a few fiscally conservative ideas, however I can’t trust them. Clinton is liberal both fiscally and politically.
Trump carries baggage from the past. It makes you wonder if those past behaviors are because of character flaws. Johnson is morally bankrupt – drug use and living-in-sin (as we used to say). Clinton is off the deep-end when it comes to scandals. I’ve never in my life seen a candidate so scandal ridden.
Right now, McMullin seems to be the only candidate beyond reproach.
Tonight’s temple shift was enjoyable. Some of the missionaries have already left, and others are about to leave. Going to the temple is a refreshing break from the political scandals and bad stuff going on in the world.
That’s another thing…
I like a candidate whom I know goes to the temple. While people can lie to their bishop and stake president to get a recommend, most do not. Most are good, honorable, honest people. I know Romney is such a man, but he isn’t running, and I believe McMullin to be such a man.
