Why I am a Mormon Democrat: Herm Olsen

I am a proud LDS Democrat because I believe we must renounce war, and proclaim peace. We must honor and respect ALL of God’s children, regardless of their origin, ethnicity or religion. We must honor and cherish Mother Earth, and respect the air, the water, and the mountains. We must build bridges, not walls. We must share the goodness of the Gospel with our actions more than our words.


We must elect good, decent and honorable men and women who show common sense and decency to all Americans, and to all citizens of the world. Are we not all brothers and sisters? Then our words and actions must demonstrate that. Do we not believe that education is the hallmark of an enlightened society, and we can elevate to the higher realms of heaven not in ignorance, but in eternal knowledge? And doesn’t that begin by supporting an extraordinary public education system from K- post graduate? We ought to put our money where our mouths are on these issues, which unavoidably renders us closer to the Democratic ideals than any other party.
