Semi-Shocking Ignorance of History
While I hardly make it a practice to debunk every stupid letter to the DU (I do, after all, have two jobs, 14.5 credits, two callings, etc. to hold down), every once in a while something sets off my Annoyance Meter:

"In the days of Nauvoo, Joseph Smith would tell the members who to vote for ... They would vote republican in one election, then democrat in the next and whig in the following."

The Republican Party was, of course, founded in the 1850s, some time after Joseph's death and the westward exodus.
