More Politics

Here are two articles over at Breitbart News that I invite all Ron Paul (or other candidate) supporters to read. This election is critical to the survival of our nation and while we can wish it was different, there are only two candidates that have a chance at winning. When a vote is cast for a third candidate it is wasted and the chances for the wrong candidate to win increase, which I believe is just what Satan wants to happen.



I can certainly understand the desire for a Libertarian candidate. We are at risk of losing our freedoms. But liberty is different than license, as in we have liberty to choose for ourselves, but we are still accountable for those choices and will suffer/enjoy the consequences of them. Legalizing or giving license to all sorts of immoral behaviors doesn't change the consequences, it just encourages people to believe there are no consequences or that the government will take care of them.

As I've listened to Mitt Romney speak and have read his book I can see that his world view is filtered through the lens of the Gospel, and the teachings of the Book of Mormon regarding this great land. Do you seriously think he's in this race for the power, money or fame? He neither needs nor wants any of that. He is running for office because he feels a responsibility to restore the governance of our nation to the founding principles of the Constitution and Declaration of Independence which are based on an acknowledgement of a Creator, our accountability to him, and the destiny of this precious land.

One commenter called Romney "too socialistic" for her taste. I hope she will elaborate on which of his actions demonstrates this. Recently we have seen numerous stories come forward of his continuous charitable acts and donations, all done without fanfare and publicity, but in the spirit of "When ye are in the service of your fellow being you are only in the service of your God," and "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto the least of these, my brethren, ye have done it unto me." He gives of his own time, money and other resources to serving others. Socialists collectivize and use someone else's money to "redeem all mankind, that one soul shall not be lost." Voluntary versus force has been part of the fight from the beginning.

I cannot convey all the details of how he put together the health care insurance plan in Massachusetts, but I will tell you that the main stream media has not portrayed it correctly. He worked, at the request of others, to put together a plan so that all Massachusetts citizens would be able to purchase their own affordable insurance if it was not available either through their employers or another way. The mandate to have medical insurance is similar in theory and practice to the mandate in many states to have automobile insurance for the financial protection of all. The final product was not exactly what he wanted because the Democrat leaders in the state senate tacked on some conditions and such, but he felt it was a good compromise all things considered. I highly recommend the book No Apology: Believe in America for understanding Romney and his positions.

Our family is reading the Book of Mormon, a chapter each morning after breakfast and before we disperse for the day. The other day our reading included Helaman 13:26-28 and I thought that it sounded like a description of the current campaign. I LOVE the Book of Mormon, it truly is the handbook for our day.

A declaration of our beliefs about government was adopted by unanimous vote at a general assembly of the church in Kirtland, Ohio on 17 August 1835. "That our belief with regard to earthly government and laws in general may not be misinterpreted nor misunderstood, we have thought proper to present at the close of this volume our opinion concerning the same."
We believe that governments were instituted of God for the benefit of man; and that he holds men accountable for their acts in relation to them, both in making laws and administering them, for the good and safety of society. 
We believe that no government can exist in peace, except such laws are framed and held inviolate as will secure to each individual the free exercise of conscience, the right and control of property, and the protection of life.
We believe that all governments necessarily require civil officers and magistrates to enforce the laws of the same; and that such as will administer the law in equity and justice should be sought for and upheld by the voice of the people if a republic, or the will of the sovereign.
We have not been left without direction so it is up to us to follow that direction and elect leaders whose morals, values and world view align with the knowledge we have received.


  1. Hi Rozy, I believe it was me you were referring to who said that Mitt Romney is too socialist for me. And I stand my that assertion. And I could spend days explaining why. But, I think it would be more beneficial to tell you to read about the New World Order, the International Bankers, and reading about what Communism is. Find out who the CFR, the Trilateral Commission, the Rockefellers are. Read about the great conspiracy that is at work to bring down freedom in a way you might not have realized. Maybe you know about it already.

    I cannot vote for Mitt Romney. I realize he isn't affiliated with the CFR, the trilateral commission or the Rockefeller or Interntaional bankers. But, he has placed people to be his closest advisors who are. As for his mandate in Massachusetts, it is freedom destroying. Just like drivers licensing. The only way to keep a Republic is to have the American people be virtuous, moral people. Do you want to put someone in jail because they don't have a drivers license? Or because they don't have health insurance? Or because they are smoking pot? I know I don't. Now if they are hurting other people? Then yes, of course. But not until then. The Democrats taking Mitt's health care and adding to it is the exact proof one needs to how destructive it is in the first place to put in place such laws.

    “The precious boon of human liberty is really the product of the Savior's teaching of the dignity of man. He declared the precious nature of every individual soul.” (Gordon B. Hinckley, Ensign, p. 70. February 2001.)

    I hope this helps.

    I have read the article you suggested by Breitbart. I have read about that argument before. As long as everyone believes that a vote for a candidate they strongly disagree with is a vote for a candidate they disagree with even more, then we are still voting for someone we disagree with. I don't hear Mitt Romney talking about the Constitution. That bothers me. A lot. When he was asked at a debate before the 2008 election about whether or not he thought the President of the United States needed to go to Congress to declare war, he said that 'you need to talk to your lawyers and make your decision from there.' That is roughly what he said. You can look up exactly what he said if you look it up on youtube, or I can find it for you too, if you like. He said that that is what Obama did, and that it was the right thing to do. Rozy, that is unconstitutional. The President of the United States does have to go to Congress in order to go to war. It is a dictator who doesn't follow the Constitution.

    Mitt Romney scares me. Bad.

    I know he isn't an 'insider,' but if he gets elected I'm sure he will see the inner workings of who really governs our nation. That might wake him up. JFK woke up to it while he was in office. He started opening his mouth and talking about who really makes the laws in the US and he was murdered shortly thereafter.

    1. I have read "None Dare Call it Conspiracy" as well as "The Great and Abominable Church" and several others. We'll just have to agree to disagree on this one. I believe Romney is a modern day Esther, raised up for such a time as this. Sorry we can't count on your vote to put a righteous man into office.

  2. I guess so. I sure wish I could convince you. Ron Paul was once asked if he knew Ezra Taft Benson and if he'd read any of his books. Ron Paul said that he had met him and he had read every one of his books.

    I just read that other link you posted about the libertarians being angry that Ron Paul didn't get the Republican nomination and so now they won't stay with the Republicans and vote for who is nominated, in this case Mitt Romney. Well this isn't true for me. I am not going to be persuaded to vote for anyone because of party.

    I'm writing in Ron Paul's name.
