    Presidents and Governors often will visit many of their executive departments especially the military among others during their term of service.
    If you were a Governor or a President would you consider visiting a prison for the purpose of meeting the inmates?

    Not as President. Possibly as Governor, but the Presidential security detail would greatly disrupt the prison routine.

    If you would like a "T" I can give you one :), even if I am not Vana :)

    Ok, lets get back on subject:type:

    As far as myself, I would make such a visit. IMHO, I would be the President of everyone, not just those who are not lawbreakers (in fact, when you think about it, we are all lawbreakers) It would be my job to see that ALL laws and policies are carried out. I would think that I would try to motivate the inmates to better themselves so they would become an asset to society upon their release.

    A friend of mine and former BB member, Joe B said he would visit so he would have the opportunity to witness.

    Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature!

    I think that president has much more important things to do, and little time to get them done.

    As for going to the prisons to witness to them, that's the Church's job (Believers), not the government's.


    (and I'll take your "T" and your "N" and raise you a "Q")
