    It amazes me that a Latter-day Saint could be a Liberal… everything our church stands for is so against the “socialist/communist” model. I lived in West Berlin Germany when the wall was up, maybe “MormonLiberals” should live in a communist/socialist country before they try to implement that model in the USA

      There are many living in “socialist countries” in Europe right now. President Kimball praised France and their government loans to citizens which were forgiven if they had three or more children and suggested the US have more such family friendly legislation. My experience has been that most people have problems with a Straw-man version of Socialism. The US has socialistic capitalism while much of Europe has capitalistic socialism. The difference isn’t as great as you’d think.
