Book: Common Sense, Rights of Man, and Other Essential Writings of Thomas Paine

My wife Cheryl got me a very thoughtful gift for Christmas; the book "Common Sense, Rights of Man, and Other Essential Writings of Thomas Paine".

by Thomas Paine (Author), Jr., Jack Fruchtman (Foreword), Sidney Hook (Introduction)

I'm just now getting into it, but I'm already familiar with "The Crisis" and revere Thomas Pain as one of my founding heroes.

I've added it to my list of "Good Books" as I'm sure this is essential reading for any modern day American patriot.

By What Authority? - Fed approved money for GMAC

We got our daughters a Wii for Christmas, and I was exploring the features after connecting it to the wireless router and was browsing the news and came across the article "Fed lets GMAC tap bailout fund" by MARTIN CRUTSINGER Associated Press Dec. 24, 2008, 8:50PM. (read)

The Fed announced Wednesday that it had approved GMAC Financial Services’ request to become a bank holding company. That designation makes GMAC eligible to receive a portion of the bailout fund and get emergency loans directly from the Fed.


How can a private corporation have that kind of power?

Is this how we want our money handled? Our elected officials in the Executive and Legislative branches have allocated $700B of the sovereign's, the people's, our, future property to be distributed by the will of a private corporation, The Federal Reserve, to another corporation.

The company is 51 percent owned by Cerberus Capital Management, the investment fund that also owns Chrysler. GM owns the remaining 49 percent of the company.

Under the Fed’s order, Cerberus and GM, whose businesses are mainly outside banking, would both have to significantly reduce their ownership stakes in GMAC. GM has committed to reducing its ownership in GMAC to less than 10 percent. Cerberus was ordered to reduce its stake to 33 percent of total equity in the company.

Under the Fed's ORDER! Who's running our country? Who's giving orders? Is this capitalism? Is this a free market economy? Is this what Thomas Jefferson and John Adam's envisioned? Who's giving order's to the Fed? Or, can the Fed do whatever it pleases? Is this a violation of our constitution? I don't think so? Not one corporation manipulating another corporation. And for what?

GM's ownership is being reduced from 49% to 9% and Cerberus's ownership is being reduced from 51% to 33%. Together they previously owned 100% of GMAC; that is being reduced to a combined ownership of 42%. Who will own the remaining, controlling 58%? The Fed? The government? The people?


Why not sell GMAC outright and be done with it. It's a failing company! Who would want it? I don't! So why is my property being used for some bad corporate investment? What's in it for me? And, what about the government that gave the Fed my property to waste and abuse? Now that must be unconstitutional; if not it should be! We should take away from our government the power to give the people's taxed property over to a corporation!

I just read through our constitution and I could not find in section 8 of article 1, where congress has any power to use taxes to buy corporations, nor give them any money from the treasury, nor transfer any such power to a corporation.

Why not let GMAC exercise the bankruptcy laws that Congress constitutionally established according to section 8 of article 1?

It seems to me that the Fed is obstructing the course designed by congress to be taken to rectify this type of corporate business failure and promote the general welfare.

Now, who is going to stop the Fed? Is that the job of our government?

Who is going to hold our government accountable for the constitutional violation of assuming powers that it does not have; that we have not granted it.

We must hold accountable those fellow countrymen that we have elected to serve us under oath to honor and uphold our national constitutional laws.

They have usurped their enumerated powers. This is but one case.

Is our liberty, property, and ability to pursue happiness being protected or infringed upon here?

It's one or the other and I say that our natural rights that we established our government to protect and uphold are being infringed upon.

Merry Christmas

I hope everyone out there has had a wonderful Christmas holiday!

Merry Christmas from me!

Never Again ... will I buy an American made automobile

How can I in good conscience support organizations that have held out their hands and begged our government for an allocation of our, the peoples money. Our government has no right to distribute our money to failing corporations. Hello! Ford, Chrysler, and GM have made known that they believe in a socialist government that is contrary to our foundation. They have betrayed us! I can not support this in any way. So, I will not. I encourage you to follow suit.

Furthermore, to think that our public servants in the government assume authority to do such things beyond their power is an usurpation of power; along the lines of the usurpations and abuses that were listed against the King of England in our Declaration of Independence. Is it time to build a similar type list against our current government and once again declare our independence? Think about it; seriously.

Time cover makes great dart target

I got the new issue of Time today and immediately put it to use. I couldn't think of a better target for my dart board. In fact, I suddenly had the urge to play darts for the first time in a long time.

Man of the year my ass! How about deceiver of the year! I will never spend any money on Time. This is my second issue of part of a Christmas gift from my Mother-in-law. She always gives thoughtful gifts, and I'm enjoying this one more than most. I can't wait to see what the second half is.

Seriously, couldn't Time have chosen a man who is a champion for life, who defends the most innocent of us all, the newborn and the unborn. No, they pick someone who is a proponent of infanticide and opposed to helping the most helpless in our society. This is simply pure evil and completely contrary to our Declaration of Independence that states that we believe in the natural human rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. If we can't defend the most basic right to life that is stated in our most sacred of national documents, that is the cornerstone of our foundation, than where is our identity? We have broken our very foundation!

What kind of magazine has the balls to place such an absurdity on the front page and expect to stay in business? It's like saying "Hello, we are idiots and have no backbone nor laurels!".

CNN drones slobber over my cheesburger in paradise

Tonight my family and I dined at Cheeseburger in Paradise. Across the room over the bar there was a TV set playing CNN. I couldn't hear it, thank goodness, but I glanced from time to time throughout our meal at the words displayed. Even that was too much. I mean, I can barely handle Fox News. This CNN was laden with drone liberals. Even the commercials were pessimistic propaganda.

You'd think that the election hadn't occurred yet.

Something about Oprah Winfrey and Sarah Palin.

Some debate over the choices Obama is making with cabinet selections.

Caroline Kennedy taking Hillary Clinton's Senator position.

Hillary Clinton meeting with Condolezza Rice for transfer of power.

Condoleezza Rice was being interviewed. She said how she admired Barrack Obama. I mean, c'mon, what's there to admire? I was feeling putrid and nauseous. I mean Bush's Secretary of State slobbering over this demagogue illegitimate felon; soon to be president elect who looks like an evil Curious George all grown up. Maybe if we helped him find the man in the yellow hat he would go home and leave us alone. I don't know if I can take it.

Across the bottom of the screen as Condoleezza is speaking is the title "Nation is no longer 'Color Blind'". I don't know what they meant, because since he was elected as an alleged colored man, that would mean that the nation does not see color. (I'm presuming they were referring to race here, as that is what the Obama campaign and it's drones kept bringing up) However, the title seems to imply the opposite; that the nation now sees color. So is the point actually that because of the election and the way the Obama Campaign played the race card, bating the other side to use it, setting up straw men that never came to be; that now the country is more divided on race and racial issues than before. Or, are they saying that perhaps there are some that still harbor such racist sentiments that they refuse to see and acknowledge the fact that their next president is actually at least partially black? I dunno. I read it a few times and even asked my wife; she just shook her head at me like I'm a loon, and asked me to not talk politics. Anyway, it would have made more sense to me if while Condoleezza Rice spoke about how she admired Obama that the subtitle below her would say that the country is no longer racist; that we are now color blind.

A commercial had big flashy words "Planet in Peril" and looked like it was pushing the global warming propaganda.

The big three auto makers begging for a bailout from the federal government.

Then the despicable Harry Reid.

There was alot about how Barrack's 21st century "new deal" will create alot of jobs.

Who's paying for this?

Where is the money coming from?

Since when is it the government's role to create jobs?

Our elected officials have sworn to uphold our constitution and defend our liberties. There was not one report of a congressman fighting to block a bailout; to protect our liberty from being violated by the illegitimate redistribution of wealth taken from us.

Is anything else happening in the world?

There was the terrible news about a fighter jet crashing into a residence in San Diego, killing two.

verification process to check qualifications of presidential candidates during the 2008 elections

One question still unanswered from the past election is whether or not Barrack Obama is a natural born citizen. The real question that needs to be answered is what process is followed to verify the qualification of presidential candidates before their names are placed on the ballot. According to the Electoral College website of the National Archives and Records Administration, it is the responsibility of each state's Secretary of State.

Maryland's Secretary of State is the honorable John McDonough. So, I sent him the following question to his email address:

subject: verification process to check qualifications of presidential candidates during the 2008 elections

Honorable McDonough,

How were the qualifications of the 2008 candidates for President of the United States verified by your office?

Thank You,

We'll see what response, if any, I receive.


I hadn't heard anything back, so I resent the email at 12/3/2008 10:56 PM, but this time to the other email address that I had found:, for Maryland's Secretary of State.

Thoughts on California Proposition 8

Here in Maryland, we didn't hear much about the proposition that was on the ballot in the recent election out in Califronia. However, it has been brought to light since the election with the protests by the gays in California.

Here are my brief thoughts on the issue:

I consider myself a libertarian, and it seems to me that the proposition in California was simply about redefining the legal definition of marriage to mean "between a man and a woman". This is how it had been until the California Supreme Court justices abused their power and authority from interpreting law to changing law. The people spoke back and have now corrected the mistake of the judges.

The gay community seems to be completely confused about the whole thing. They seem to have made the issue about hate and equality. This is very sad. I bet most of the gay community have not even taken the time to carefully read the proposition and taken the time and effort to understand the events that led up to the proposition. Why don't they just make up a new word like "garriage" or something for gay marriage and ask for a law to be passed that give them the same rights that heterosexual couples have with marriage.

I think this letter makes a good argument about the protests that have followed the election: Open Letter to Protesters of LDS Support of Prop 8

Communism in Japan

While researching John Birch, because I recently stumbled upon The John Birch Society, I noticed a link about related stories, Communism Is Alive and Well and Living in Japan, and followed it. Check it out if you'd like: Time article Communism Is Alive and Well and Living in Japan by Bryan Walsh Friday, Jun. 22, 2007


Oregon Senator Gordon Smith deserved to lose

From Time article For the Republicans, It Could Have Been Worse By Michael Grunwald Wednesday, Nov. 05, 2008:

Obama won double-digit victories in both states, and Coleman and Smith are both milquetoast pols who did much less than McCain ever did to distance themselves from the President until his low approval ratings began to threaten their re-elections. Smith was so desperate to distance himself from the GOP that he ran ads touting his cooperation with Obama.

To me this shows lack of conviction to your principles. As a conservative, not only would I find it hard to support him, I would oppose him. We need solid conservative political leaders in public service who stand by their laurels. He has proven not to be what we need. So, good riddance.

I'm reminded; when I was home visiting family in Oregon this past August, I saw a TV advertisement and was not impressed with Gordon Smith. I forgot what the substance or message of the ad. was, but I remember thinking that it wasn't somebody that I would support or vote for. This was before I even knew that he was a Republican. In fact, I believe that I assumed he was a democrat from what I heard and saw in the ad. It later surprised me to learn that he was a Republican; I exclaimed "must be a RHINO". You can imagine my further surprise when I learned even later that he was a member of my faith. But that shouldn't surprise me too much, as there are members of both political parties throughout The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In fact, you might want to sit down, because I can still hardly believe this is true, but it's been told to me and confirmed by several members of the church that Harry Reid himself is a member of the church. Now that is .... well, I have not the words to describe what I think about that, or him...

Hey, what about the "natural born citizen" constitutional requirement?

I still don't know if Obama is a natural born citizen or not. At first I was skeptical when I first heard the argument a few months ago. But, as of yet, we the American people, have not been shown proof that Obama is a natural born citizen. Until we do, we must assume that he is an illegitimate president.

Furthermore, he has committed a felony (see my post from 2008-09-17) and should be brought to trial. It is our duty to pursue this. I have yet to hear back from my congressmen that I wrote. I will follow up and report. I urge you to do the same.

Race and Communism - Objective Accomplished - Ready the Counter Revolution

"The Communist Party, USA, has its orders direct from the Communist International in Moscow -- fan the resentment of the American Negroes until it bursts into flame, next feed the flames until our nation is engulfed in horrible holocaust. Then the white American Communist will strike with full fury within, so that we shall be sore beset and wide open for attack from without... I can only repeat that the Communist effort in this direction is unceasing." (Julia Brown, Negro Ex-F.B.I. Undercover Agent; I Testify, p. 179; quoted by Ezra Taft Benson, An Enemy Hath Done This, p. 109)

What have we been witnessing? Eerie, isn't it? We are witnessing the unfolding of what was described in the above quote. From Ayres to Obama. They are now in striking position. This is what they have been working, conspiring, and fighting for.

My stomach churned as I was sickened by the picture of the masses thronged together awaiting Obama's victory speech; just a short while ago. I could barely stand to watch. (In fact I didn't) Children on parent's shoulders, clinging to the American flag; our great symbol of liberty and freedom; that symbol so despised by Obama, Ayres, and the Left. The poor fools have themselves ushered in the next chapter in the Fascist/Communist revolution in America. An international socialist regime is on the horizon.

We must band together and rise up against the Left. The election may be over, but our loss at hand means that we have all the more work cut out for us. There is no time to waste. We have another election in two short years. Lets start campaigning to take over as many seats in congress as possible, and as much local and state positions of political power. We may be able to yet prevent a horrible civil war and perhaps even the holocaust referred to by the communists.

Hopefully, the masses that have been against us will be awakened and see the light, the poor fools. They have placed a fascist anti-Christ in the White House. May God help us!

Perhaps I'm over reacting. Perhaps I am becoming more and more of a right wing fanatic. Could it be that listening to Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, and Sean Hannity, along with reading the Bible, the Book of Mormon, and listening to the teachings of modern day prophets in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, along with main stream Christian leaders, have clouded my reasoning and thought process? I don't think those sources of truth would betray me. No, I think that I am right. Perhaps it is a calling. I feel called. So, therefore I answer the call. I only hope that my wife will come around and be supportive of me. After all, it is for her benefit along with my children, and our posterity that we sacrifice and fight. For what else is there?

I think Captain Moroni, in the Book of Mormon, said it best when he "rent his coat; and he took a piece thereof, and wrote upon it—In memory of our God, our religion, and freedom, and our peace, our wives, and our children—and he fastened it upon the end of a pole. And he fastened on his head-plate, and his breastplate, and his shields, and girded on his armor about his loins; and he took the pole, which had on the end thereof his rent coat, (and he called it the title of liberty) and he bowed himself to the earth, and he prayed mightily unto his God for the blessings of liberty to rest upon his brethren, so long as there should a band of Christians remain to possess the land—" (The Book of Mormon, Alma 46:12-13)

May we be ever vigilant and never found complacent or negligent of our duties. Please awake, arise, and join with me, and all other American conservatives who believe in the Judaeo-Christian principles that our country was founded on. Let us hold our title of liberty, our constitution, high above our head and close to our hearts. Let us hold those accountable who have sworn to uphold it and have broken their oath. Let us seek out and support righteous leaders to serve in public office, and rise to the occasion when none other is found. Let us take back our country, in memory of our God, religion, freedom, peace, & families.

May God bless America and bless us with the strength, courage, perseverance, determination, tenacity, aptitude, and power to wage this righteous counter revolution!

Obama threatens to bankrupt coal industry

If only the election were delayed for a few more weeks or months; imageine how much we could still learn about Obama. I'm so amazed that there is so much dirt that continues to surface. You'd think by now that the media would have discovered and revealed all of this. However, most of the critical information seems to be coming from blogs, radio, and foreign sources. What has happened to our domestic news agencies?

Anyway, most of the dirt of late has been from Obama himself; words out of his own mouth; hard to refute or repudiate. If only the media would do their job. I'm so glad that I didn't just graduate with a degree in journalism. The "professionals" have completely discredited their profession; they themselves rely on basement bloggers; might as well buy yourself a new laptop, kick your feet up, and start blogging.

So what was I going to point out in this post again? Oh yeah, see the link below for the latest dirt; Obama blatently stating how he will kill the coal industry. Is it obvious yet, Obama and the Ayers' revolution, their attack on capitalism and the foundation of our free society?

now we're selfish?!

So, now Barrack says we're selfish, and that we wouldn't share our toys or food with classmates in kindergarten like he did because we believe in individual rights and the free market economic system; because we believe that man ought to be able and be allowed to be charitable without compulsion by a government.

Throughout his campaign we have been called an embarrassment, racist, redneck, and bitter clingers to our bibles, guns, and religion. Now he says we're selfish!

"racist" keyword in "leftist/socialist" vocab for someone telling truth

We know that the left re-defines words to suit them. I've been wondering why they've been calling everyone racist. I mean, they even called Bill Clinton and Geraldine Ferraro racist. Now Michelle Obama has called the African Press International (API) racist. It has become apparent that "racist" is defined in the left's dictionary to mean "someone who tells the truth".
  1. API stunned
  2. Shocking development: Mrs Obama decides enough is enough: “My husband was born in Hawaii and adopted by his step father, does that make him unpatriotic; she asks”, on a direct telephone to API.

What is Obama hiding? Can we have some honesty?


Obama continues to refuse to provide the media with school records, passports, college theses, law school records, law firm clients, medical records, Illinois State Senate files, and other documents about his record.

Pre-Election Essential Reading - educate your friends, family, and neighbors

Well, we're down to the final stretch now.

Since, at this point, I don't think the victims of Obama's deception have time to read The Obama Nation or The Case Against Barrack Obama, I've put together a short list of some very good articles that I think sum up his position on critical issues. Check them out, print them out, and give to your undecided and confused friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, etc.

Obama? no way - polls meaningless

Doe's anyone really believe that this character Barrack Obama seriously has a shot at winning the presidential election?

All indications that I see tell me NO, besides the television, which reports polling results with a tight race between Barry and John. I have no trust in any polls. Seriously, think about it. Who are they polling? I've lived in three states as an eligible voter (Oregon, Nevada, Maryland), and I've never been called once. I've asked many of my friends and colleagues, and none have ever been called.

On my way to and from work, I pass 1 lonely Obama sign and about 20 McCain signs, each way. Oh, also 1 Bob Barr sign.

Also on my drive to and from work every day, I see about 1 Obama bumper stickers compared to about 20 McCain stickers.

Out of all of the people that I've talked to at the office, at church, in my neighborhood, in my family, only 3 or 4 indicated support for Obama, and the rest are all strongly opposed to Obama and in support of Palin (and McCain). I'm talking about 100 people; probably more.

And I live in a blue state. I'm thinking that Maryland will surprise everyone and go red for GOP.

Addendum: October 28, 2008 8:11 PM

This morning I actually caught an article about how the signage is in McCain's favor in the local newspaper as I was headed out the door at the convenience store.

see McCain signs here outpace Obama's

Team Sarah

I actually turned the TV on for a few minutes tonight and happened to catch Sarah Palin in an interview with Sean Hannity. She's awesome, simply put.

A little later, Mrs. Fred Thompson came on and talked about her support for Sarah and mentioned I checked it out and signed up as a member.

Here's what I put in the invitation I sent to some friends and family:

If you love life, liberty, and justice for all, as I do, then I'm sure you love Sarah Palin. That's why I thought you'd be interested in supporting and promoting her in the current battle for VP. ;)

Thought: Rights, Privileges, and the proper role of government

A privilege that man does not have without the bounds of government and without interference of other men is not one that is proper of a government to instill and uphold within it's bounds. Those that man enjoys naturally, without intervention from government or others, are those natural rights granted by God and bestowed upon all men equally without discrimination. The protection of these rights is the sole reason and purpose of creating and maintaining a government. Any extension of a government's role beyond this is improper.

As man's creation, it is his responsibility to his fellow man and God to keep government true to it's proper role.

Rebuttal: in defense of Sarah on the use of "under God" in The Pledge of Allegiance

I find it interesting yet disturbing that some find John McCain's pick of his VP nominee troubling, while others, myself included, find it to be his only redeeming grace.

Anna Banana in her blog entry "Please Consider the Following" on Tuesday, September 16, 2008, basically listed out left wing talking points attacking Sarah Palin. (Do these people think for themselves?) I'm not going to take the time to rebut all of her arguments here, but want to address the following excerpt:

Not only is her biology a little lacking, but apparently her history is also. When asked if she was offended by the phrase "under God" in the pledge of allegiance, her response indicated her lack of knowledge of U.S. history (which would seem pertinent when vying for the spot of Vice President of that same country). As a note, the link in the article that I linked to supplying the interview doesn't work, but a transcript of the interview can be found elsewhere if googled. On a lighter note, if you read the comments at the bottom of the article, the one by solarbear is fun for a good laugh. For more about Palin's religious views as interpreted by a rival of hers, see here.

From the article referenced above:
Question: Are you offended by the phrase "Under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance? Why or why not?

Palin: Not on your life. If it was good enough for the founding fathers, its good enough for me and I'll fight in defense of our Pledge of Allegiance.

The pledge, of course, was not written until 1892 and the words "under God" were not added until the 1950s
My points:

1. I don't know why she attacked her biology. Is Anna suggesting that because she is a female that she is lacking abilities that males have in order to qualify for the job of vice president?

2. I would take an alien that had just landed on earth with no knowledge of U.S. History over Obama/Biden any day, provided he could demonstrate a sound decision making ability, strong leadership skills, good judgement, courage, loyalty, conviction, fortitude, an understanding of innate human rights and the role of government to protect those rights. Of course, any one quality alone would warrant a better choice than Obama.

3. Let me say that I have not done any validation of the inquiry of Sarah and her response. But, assuming that it is true, let me say that the question was whether she is offended by the use of the term "under God" as used in the Pledge of Allegiance in it's current form. She simply and succinctly, yet lightheartedly stated that the use of "under God" was worthy of our founding fathers, that she felt strongly about that phrase and would defend keeping it in the pledge.

Just take a walk around our capitol and notice how many times "Under God" is engraved on our national monuments. It's on our money, it's how our forefathers felt about our country and God. That is why it was added to Francis Bellamy's original pledge; it just wasn't quite right without it. This goes to show that some good can come from a socialist if you add God back into the equation.

I can just see these little Marxist drones foaming at the mouth; "ha", "gotchya", "she doesn't know history", "see, I told you she was an idiot", "wow, that's so funny".

The sad thing is that this Anna Banana appears to be a fairly attractive young woman, physically. Just read through the rest of her post, if you have time, and see how her brain has been turned too mush. What a waste. Perhaps, she, as happens with so many, will see the error of her ways as she matures through the years.

Another thing:

It's curious why there is so much uproar about Sarah Palin from people that wouldn't have voted for McCain anyway. I don't waste much time focusing on Joe Bidin, as he is basically irrelevant to my opposition to Obama's campaign. I disagree strongly with Barrack Obama; his lack of moral values, his repeated display of poor judgment, his tactical deception, his indecisiveness, his lack of leadership, his felonious, treasonous, and hypocritical behavior. Barrack is a radical Marxist who's vision of government and it's proper role is antithetical to mine. He is an enemy to the state. He is the culmination of the left wing liberal progressive socialist America hating establishment that has been seeking to undermine and overthrow our society founded on a free market economy and individual rights to life, liberty, property, and the pursuit of happiness. Obama's selection of Biden as his running mate is a non factor; still, NoBama!

Obama Guilty of Felony - Violation of the Logan Act


The Logan Act is a United States federal law that forbids unauthorized citizens from negotiating with foreign governments. It was passed in 1799 and last amended in 1994. Violation of the Logan Act is a felony, punishable under federal law with imprisonment of up to three years.

according to New York Post article "OBAMA TRIED TO STALL GIS' IRAQ WITHDRAWAL" by Amir Taheri on September 15, 2008 at, Obama is guilty of violating the Logan Act and thereby has committed a felony and should be brought to trial and punished with imprisonment for up to three years. Let's pursue it.

Write to your senators and congressmen and ask for an investigation to be conducted.

I wrote my congressman from Maryland District 5, Steny Hoyer, via his website at
as well as my senators:
Senator Barbara Mikulski at
Senator Benjamin Cardin at

This is what I wrote:

Congressman Hoyer,

Please initiate an investigation of the allegations that, while on a recent visit to Iraq this past July, Senator Obama violated the Logan Act by asking Iraqi leaders to delay any agreement regarding U.S. troop withdrawal until after the formation of the next U.S. President's administration.

If true, then Obama has committed a felony and should be brought to trial and punished with imprisonment for up to three years.

I look forward to hearing back from you with an analysis of the findings from your research and a report on any action taken.

This and follow up communications relating to this matter will form the basis for an article and speech that I will be presenting to the public in our district.

I appreciate your attention to my concerns and inquiries.

I have sent a similar letter to both Senator Cardin and Senator Mikulski.

Thank you very much,
Hyrum Shewell

The quote listed in the header of this blog is an abridgment of a quote of Ezra Taft Benson. Here it is in it's entirety:

In times as serious as these, we must not permit fear of criticism to keep us from doing our duty, even at the risk of our counsel being tabbed as political, as government becomes more and more entwined in our daily lives. In the crisis through which we are now passing, we have been fully warned. There are some of us who do not want to hear the message. It embarrasses us. The things which are threatening our lives, our welfare, our freedoms are the very things some of us have been condoning. Many do not want to be disturbed as they continue to enjoy their comfortable complacency. There can be no neutrality! We are, or we are not, on the side of the Lord! (Ezra Taft Benson, 1973)
