There Goes the Neighborhood (Also Known As "Track Two")
Fed up with the garbage going on in society? Does your head want to explode
every day when you see the news headlines about gay education for elementary
school kids or the latest attack from the ACLU and our government on religious
rights? Want to do something but don't know what to do? Here's my little attempt
problem and some possible solutions.
As a Republican, I firmly believe in the party platform for limited government
and fiscal restraint. The problem with the platform is the people that go into
office swearing to abide by it seem to check their badge at the door and forget
anything they campaigned for as long as their votes for social agendas buy
them their next re-election.
There's several statements here by LDS
leaders as well but that shouldn't throw you if you're not LDS. They're very
patriotic and understand the nature of what we're dealing with in a corrupt
world. Feel free to email me if you have any questions about the LDS church
and I'll try
to answer them.
"How can men of conscience ignore the teachings
of the Master in their daily affairs, in business, or in government? We
by and wink at many things because we fear to do anything about them.
We may be against crime or communism, but what do we do about it? We may
against corruption in government or against juvenile delinquency, but
what do we do about it? We may have a belief in the gospel of Jesus Christ,
what are we doing about it? We need to push fear into the background
and come forward with a definite, positive declaration, and assume responsibility."

General Conference, October 1960

If you have read the sections above, congratulations. You have read
what you will either consider nonsense, or a seemingly overwhelming task of
turning the tide of the
rapid loss of our freedoms. Where do you start? Purchase and read the
books. Then share them with others. Purchase a pocket constitution and study
it. Study Cleon Skousen's textbook on the constitution, The Making of America.
They're all listed in those articles.
Your whole perspective on politics and the insiders of Washington will change
things happen in Washington. You will begin to examine the voting record
of your elected officials and may I say boldly that I am completely
ashamed of my representatives
in Utah. Their voting records are abominable in supporting the constitution.
Senator Bennett has received a "D" rating from the gun owners
of America on 2nd Amendment issues protecting the rights of people
to bear arms. Senator
Hatch has a "B" but neither one made the national taxpayer
union's list of Friends of Taxpayers. Neither did any of the representatives
Our state representatives go to Washington in a spirit of "cooperation" where
they claim the only way to accomplish anything
is to give
and take with other
For a people that believe the constitution is inspired of God, it is
a shame they don't treat the document as scripture.
I cannot imagine our officials voting on Biblical commandments and saying, "well,
lets have a little bending on this adultery business as long as you'll make
a public statement decrying idols in the home." Yet this is exactly how
our representatives act. Compromise one commandment or freedom as long as you
get to tout something positive on the other end.
I would much rather have the
reputation that Utah stands for the constitution under
SINGLE BILL that comes through the Senate that doesn't uphold the constitution,
than receive ANY federal money for any project. We need to reestablish the
constitution as the framework for our society. There's a reason the 10th
Amendment limited the powers of the federal government to a handful
of things that needed to be national issues, and then everything else was
left to the
have lost massive amounts of power over the last century in the name of
the so-called "general welfare" clause which our Washington bureaucrats
rely on in ways never intended by the founding fathers. The only way to reclaim
it is to inform our neighbors of good candidates to
pledge AND ACT to uphold the Constitution.
Representatives were to be elected in 2 year cycles so you could throw them
out if they violated the constitution and senators were to be appointed by
the state in the senate in 6 year cycles because they had the confidence of
doing what was right for the state. With the 17th amendment, senators
no longer have ties to the state and are elected by the populace which
means they have to stay popular by buying votes. The original system was a
and balance between the representatives trying to buy your vote, and the senators
keeping them in check so we didn't have runaway budget problems.

that actually want to return us to the government our founding fathers
Please read these books. Please tell others about this site. It really doesn't
take a "superman" to do this. Just study, and speak
up, offering a bit of information here and there about what you've learned.
Check into the issues and vote the constitution. Pick a couple of things you
think would be beneficial and start figuring out
how to work on them (lawyers in a bus at the bottom of the ocean is already
taken ;) ).
Educate yourself, educate others, vote.
