Convention of Statesmen


Thankful to be an American

I am so grateful to Jesus Christ for loving us enough to pay the price for our sins, sorrows, illnesses and grief. I don't know how I would fight the battles I fight, write the books I write, love the people I love and strive to be a better person each day without the bone deep knowledge of my Savior's love.

I look at this beautiful, beloved nation I was blessed to born in and thank God every single day that I am an American who still knows what really happened in her history. My knowledge of America hasn't been tainted by the communists who infiltrated our education system. Actually, the communists quit trying to infiltrate for the Democratic party had taken up their cause. Stunning any real American would be stupid enough to fall for that, but there you have it.

Many people tell me Barack Obama is just trying to help people. And yet, as I look at how he has decided to "fundamentally change America" I see the very thing the prophets and apostles have warned us of...a wolf in sheep's clothing. As I see him trying, daily, to dismantle the Constitution and the Republic, another day brings another czar, another day brings another freedom lost and still, I look around at my fellow Americans and I still feel hope.

On Saturday, I saw Americans, anywhere from 2.2 to 4 million strong (Washington, D.C. Metro Police), march on the Capitol as Obama turned tail and ran for Minneapolis. At every capitol across the nation, those who could not join our fellow American patriots in Washington, D.C., marched on our own capitols. A thousand here, three thousand there, ten thousand there ... any way you look at it, America spoke up IN SPADES and Washington, D.C. remained deaf to the desires of the American people.

We don't want socialism. Washington, D.C. persists in trying to push it on us.

We don't want socialized medicine, we want TRUE healthcare reform. Washington, D.C. ignores us.

We want the U.S. Constitution restored as the rule of law. Washington, D.C. wants to destroy the Constitution.

We don't want Washington, D.C. to continue at full speed throttle toward communism. We want our democratic republic.

We don't want to be spent into bankruptcy. Washington, D.C.--under control of the Democratic party--is bankrupting us as quickly as they possible can, passing legislation after legislation.

We DO NOT want our 2nd Amendment rights to stripped from us. Washington, D.C. is doing all it can to strip us of our weapons. But we, the American people, recall the words of one of our founding fathers, Thomas Jefferson: "The great defense against a rogue government is an armed populace." And he added to that: "The beauty of the second amendment is it will not be needed until they try to take it." Take note D.C., taking our weapons will not be an easy task.

I could go on and on, but there is no need. All one has to do to see the host of attacks on our U.S. Constitution is scroll back through this blog.

But September 12th gave me such unbelievable hope. This fight I fight--for the preservation of America--is being fought with millions upon millions of citizens on the side of America. I can safely say that for every American patriot who marched on the U.S. Capitol as well as every state capitol, there were 10 to 20 of us who couldn't be there for one reason or another. That puts us at 20 to 40 million vehemently opposed to the course of Washington, D.C.'s actions. We were asleep before ... we are no longer.

So with the firm knowledge that our Lord and Savior has entrusted America to her citizens, we will not allow her to fall. Come 2010 every single member of Congress better kiss their congressional offices goodbye ... you will never return. America has had it with being ignored. We have never embraced communism and we are not going to start now. You will stand up for America now or you will be replaced in November of 2010. There is no negotiating. You will defend the Constitution or you will go.

Here in Utah we have Senators Hatch and Bennett. They have been in Washington, D.C. so long they have become the enemy. Their votes in favor of the radical Cass Sunstein were the final nails in their political coffins. I have thrown my support, completely and 100% by Mark Shurtleff in his bid to take Bob Bennett's senatorial seat. I have looked at the other candidates in that race and found them wanting in one way or another. Mark Shurtleff has my vote come November 2010. Orrin Hatch isn't up for re-election until 2012. Candidates wishing to run against him, please contact me. I'm interested in speaking with you.

I would like to see Congressman Chaffetz show some spine and seriously take on Washington, D.C. as he promised to do. Yes, he is outnumbered. Doesn't mean the fight should be surrendered before its begun.

Congressman Jim Matheson needs to be replaced. He is in favor of far too many socialist policies. It is time a true conservative represent the 2nd Congressional District.

And I close this day with a quote from the Doctrine & Covenants and the U.S. Constitution I will fight to the death to defend:
77) According to the laws and constitution of the people, which I have suffered to be established, and should be maintained for the rights and protection of all flesh, according to just and holy principles;

78) That every man may act in doctrine and principle pertaining to futurity, according to the moral agency which I have given unto him, that every man may be accountable for his own sins in the day of judgment.

79) Therefore, it is not right that any man should be in bondage one to another.

80) And for this purpose have I established the Constitution of this land, by the hands of wise men whom I raised up unto this very purpose, and redeemed the land by the shedding of blood.
As our Constitution inspired over 80 others in as many nations across the world, it shall never become antiquated for it is a divine document established for the protection of America's people. In it, the founding fathers gave us recourse to overthrow rogue governments.

The question I ask you now: Has the American government gone rogue?

With one more question: Will you allow these congressmen and senators to continue holding their offices in 2010?
