It has been said, follow a man’s money and you will see where his heart is. Regarding Mitt’s “giving”, it is highly unlikely that the Romney’s vast fortune has benefited the poor, the downtrodden, the sick, the disabled or any other charitable cause. The Mormon religion requires 10% of the gross of all Mormon’s increase to go directly to the church and Mitt and Ann Romney, being the faithful Mormons that they are, are very obedient to the church. As a matter of fact, the Romneys must follow the prophets and their Mormon religion FIRST, before all else, because their very eternal salvation and exaltation to godhood depends on it. This places our nation, the poor, the non-Mormon, the sick and needy in the back seat.
On Tuesday, Aug. 16th, 2011, Hal Boyd of the Deseret News reported:
Mitt Romney gives away more money than most Americans make, and the majority of that giving goes to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, according to a Huffington Post article.
“According to IRS documents reviewed by The Huffington Post, Mitt and Ann Romney’s charitable foundation gave $4, 325,000 to the Mormon Church in three hefty installments in 2003, 2008 and 2009,” said the piece. “That was 74 percent of their foundation’s donations from 2002 to 2009, during which time the couple gave a total of $5,954,916 to charity.”
In addition to the tithes and other donations directly to the church programs, Romney has also donated $1.3 million to church-owned Brigham Young University since 1998; $1 million of which went to found BYU’s George W. Romney Institute for Public Management, according to the Huffington Post.”

About the author:
Former Mormon Bishop’s Daughter and Political Commentator Reveals Real Story on Mitt Romney!
Tricia Erickson, (a Conservative) was the first Damage Control/Crisis Management Specialist in the country, as stated by Barbara Walters on the show “20/20”. Tricia is also a political consultant and on-air contributor. She has opined on many local and national news and entertainment TV and radio shows/networks. She is also the author of the book “Can Mitt Romney Serve Two Masters? The Mormon Church Versus The Office Of The Presidency of the United States of America.”
Because for the first time in history, a prominent Mormon could achieve the Office Of The Presidency, Tricia feels a responsibility to educate the public, both in the US and abroad, regarding what this potential Mormon President could truly mean for America. She is an expert on the well-masked cult of Mormonism and a former Mormon Bishop’s daughter who left the church in her mid 20’s.
From a political stand point, she believes it is imperative to reveal the facts on Romney’s appalling political record in opposition to what the GOP and the Romney camp shifts the voters to believe, in order to achieve the Presidency.
We have by now experienced with the current President what smooth words and entertainment imagery, as opposed to substance, can bring to the highest office in the land. Now, the GOP has served up this front-runner liberal candidate who has no problem with misrepresenting his own record for the reason of political expediency. The truth be known, there is not much difference between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. Their policies and records are very much alike. Flip a coin!
Side note: Some of the issues Tricia has been called to speak to in the past are the dangers of Radical Islam, Barack Obama, Mitt Romney, Mormonism, all things political, the imaging-posturing-positioning of Presidential Candidates, the culture wars and more.
