Participation in Politics.


I am grateful for the opportunity to live in a Free society.  Where I can worship as I please, and I can vote as I please without intimidation.  Do I think the current government is a wise, just group of people?  I do not.  I believe many of them have forgotten whom they serve.  I find that our leaders, with the exception of a few, have failed us in many regards.  They have left us, our children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren holding the bag for which each and every leader benefited.

I believe it is time to call all incumbents home.  In the immortal words of Orrin Hatch.  "What do you call a Senator that has served 18 years?  You call him home."---1976 in reference to Frank Moss.

It is time we wipe the board, and start fresh.  It's time we bring new ideas to the table, and resurrect founding principles that have been laying in the dust for far to long.  It's time that WE THE PEOPLE, rise up, in one clear voice, and say.  You will not cross this line, we stand our ground, do what you must, but in the end you answer to us.

Those of you who refuse to vote, are part of the reason for the decay of our great democracy.  Apathy is creeping in and killing Freedom and Liberty at every turn.  Do you really want to wake up tomorrow with gays waving their colored flag on your lawn, while your government locks you up?  Do you really want to abdicate the Freedoms that God has given you?  You are commanded, in a scriptural sense, to elect, just, good, righteous, moral people.  You must vote for people that are willing to defend, and die for righteous things like the divinely inspired Constitution.

We must stop sacrificing our essential liberties for bits of security.  In the end, we will all be secure, but we will have no Freedoms.  I choose FREEDOM every day of the week, and Liberty twice on Sundays.  We are at an impasse with our country and it is time for those people who have been sitting on their behinds to get up, and go vote, be part of the process.  Good and bad, you can't bitch and moan about something that you simply don't take part in.  It is of the utmost importance that you participate in politics.

If you are LDS, then you know that the First Presidency itself has urged attendance at local caucuses.  It is time, my Fellow George Washingtons.  It is time to help apply the brakes, turn this bus around, and get us the Hell away from that cliff that we're just about to go over.  It's going to take every single one of us to hold onto that steering wheel, but by Heaven and Hell, we're going to move that bus around.

Say your prayers, read your Scriptures, read your Constitution, if you need a pocket one, let me know, I'll find a way to get you one.  The Scriptures and Constitution should be read daily,  and at the very least, weekly.  Remind yourselves that one voice can make a difference, that WE THE PEOPLE started out as one voice.
