The Sacred Constitution

"The Constitution of the United States is a great and treasured part of my religion. . . . The overturning, or the material changing, or the distortion of any fundamental principle of our constitutional government would thus do violence to my religion. . . . My faith teaches me that the Constitution is an inspired document drawn by the hands of men whom God raised up for that very purpose; that God has given His approval of the Government set up under the Constitution 'for the rights and protection of all flesh, according to just and holy principles': that the constitutional 'principle of freedom in maintaining rights and privileges, belongs to all mankind, and is justifiable before' the Lord. (D&C 101:77, 98:5.) . . .

"So far as my knowledge goes, this is the only government now on the earth to which God has given such an approval. It is His plan for the government of free men." [President J. Reuben Clark, Stand Fast by Our Constitution, pp. 7, 172]

Personal Responsibility

"We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions."- R. Reagan

Political Connections With Other Countries

December 30, 2010 by Bob Livingston

The United States now has hundreds of military bases and tens of thousands of troops stationed around the globe. U.S. State Department cables released by WikiLeaks reveal that U.S. diplomats pressure foreign governments to do the bidding of U.S. corporatocracy, and threaten retaliation if they don’t comply.

This is a far cry from the type of foreign policy our Founders envisioned.

In a 1775 letter to Patrick Henry, George Washington wrote: "My ardent desire is, and my aim has been… to comply strictly with all our engagements foreign and domestic; but to keep the United States free from political connections with every other country. To see that they may be independent of all, and under the influence of none. In a word, I want an American character, that the powers of Europe may be convinced we act for ourselves and not for others; this, in my judgment, is the only way to be respected abroad and happy at home."

Instead, the U.S. is a servant of its global corporatist masters and is neither respected abroad nor happy at home.

We need a leader willing to step up and begin to disengage us from foreign entanglements.[PIZ5310D]&rrid=238434856
