) You two seem to be referencing different things. Judy is referencing Obama while Hoaxster is obviously referring to the Mormon colonies in Mexico which includes the experience of the Romney family.

Proximity - you could travel there by wagon
Anarchy - there was hardly any effective government to forbid what they were intending
Anti-clericalism - anti-government forces based in the Indian dominated regions tended to be opposed to the RC Church which was often seen as a tool of the elites against which the Revolution was raised early in the next century from the chaos of which George Romney's parents fled
