I Vote.

This time in our country getting ready for the Presidential election, I get so frustrated with all the posts on facebook centered around the election and people bashing others and feeling entitled to post their opinions but then don't respect when others with a different view point do the same. Personally, I think about hiding half my friends from my news-feed until it's all over. That includes the people I agree with. That being said, this is my political post and it will be my last. I liked this quote:

"I want to know what the man stands for....
and I care not what his party tag is...Today, our 
duty transcends party allegiance; our duty today 
is allegiance to the Constitution as it was 
give to us by the Lord."- J. Reuben Clark

I totally agree with this. To me, I don't 'fit' in either of the major political parties. I think that entire system is bogus anyway. We should be concentrating on the Constitution, not personal agendas or parties. The amount of money spent on these elections could be much better spent. When I run the world.....

I love this picture of George Washington:
We have a book called, The Constitution: A Heavenly Banner written by Ezra Taft Benson.

For those who don't know, we believe that the Constitution was divinely inspired by God. Therefore, if it is deviated from, we are in trouble. We're in trouble. Here are some favorite quotes.

"The fourth basic principle we must understand is that people are superior to the governments they form. Since God created people with certain inalienable rights, and they, in turn, created government to help secure and safeguard those rights, it follows that the people are superior to the creature they created. We are superior to government and should remain master over it, not the other way around....
....It stands to reason that the government itself has no innate power nor privilege to do anything. It's only source of authority and power is from the people who have created it. This is made clear in the Preabmle of the Constitution of the United States, which reads: "WE THE ordain and establish this Consititution for the United States of America."

"Every true American and true friend of liberty should love our inspired Constitution. Its creation was a miracle."

"The Consitiution was designed to work only with a moral and righteous people. "Our Constitution," said John Adams (2nd President of the United States), "was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."

As the Constitution is shifted and changed, we are releasing some of our Freedom little by little until it is no longer relevant. I personally like freedom, and I do believe the Constitution needs to be upheld if we are to be a prosperous and free people.

I watched this video last night at work. It warns of the dangers that our country is headed towards communism as the Constitution is changed to fit the agendas of our government.

OK that is my political post. You can agree or disagree but I respect your opinions and beliefs, respect is different than agreeing with. Respect along with freedom are very important. That is all.

You sound very libertarian! I feel the same way about not fitting in on either the extreme left or extremely right side. I would say I am fiscally conservative. I feel that I am also morally conservative, but have a hard time saying that laws should be dictated out of those beliefs. you're right though, it is all bogus. There will never be a perfect el presidente or government until Christ comes again. I'm waiting...maybe it will be sooner than later? The way our current affairs look, that could be soon! I love your quotes about the constitution. I have an old textbook from my BYU days that talks about government and the constution in a more "spiritual" rather than political backdrop. I have been referencing it a lot lately. This is such a crazy time of year with all of the political bashing going on. I am so sick of it!
