Romney is the scion of an old Mormon family. His grandparents were polygamists who fled the United States in the early 20th century when the Mormon Church repudiated polygamy; his father was born in Mexico. The Romneys returned to the U.S. in 1911 when a violent civil war broke out in Mexico.
One position that Romney has been consistent on, however, is his support for [[globalist]] policies, having been strongly influenced by [[neoconservatism]] and the [[Council on Foreign Relations]].<ref name="CFRneocon">Mass, Warren (September 25, 2012).

During his 2002 campaign to become the 70th governor of Massachusetts, Romney described his views as "moderate" and proclaimed that "my views are progressive".<ref>[http://www.businessinsider.com/romney-in-2002-my-views-are-progressive-2011-12 Romney In 2002: 'My Views Are Progressive'], "I think people recognize that I am not a partisan Republican. That I'm someone who is moderate, and that my views are progressive."</ref><ref>[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMcjJEXt9To Mitt Romney in Worcester 2002 "My views are progressive"]</ref>
Currently, Romney claims to be pro-life, but his record is very spotty. At times he has claimed to be pro-infanticide.
"I am [[pro-life]]. I believe that [[abortion]] is the wrong choice except in cases of incest, rape, and to save the life of the mother. I wish the people of America agreed, and that the laws of our nation could reflect that view. But while the nation remains so divided over abortion, I believe that the states, through the democratic process, should determine their own abortion laws and not have them dictated by
[[judicial mandate ]]." ([[Boston]] Globe, Mitt Romney Editorial, July 26, 2005)

Romney claimed to be opposed to the idea of [[
gay marriage]], however, he has voiced explicit support for the [[homosexual agenda]]. He has advocated for domestic partnership benefits and equal rights for [[homosexuals]], which is gay marriage in everything but name and an easy stepping stone on the vile gay agenda path towards homosexual recruitment.<ref>http://web.archive.org/web/20021218005104/www.romneyhealey.com/issues/3</ref> He also supports adoption for gay couples.<ref>http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503544_162-57432292-503544/romney-says-hes-fine-with-gay-couples-adopting-children/</ref>
Mitt Romney believes in [[
Evolution]] as a part of [[Creation]] and he opposes [[Intelligent Design]].<ref>http://evolution.about.com/od/Overview/tp/2012-Gop-Presidential-Candidates-On-Evolution.htm</ref>
