There are many Mormons who support Ron Paul, and by no means would this site intend to speak for all of them. Some might find some of the historic and current affairs content found herein not to their liking, though they are progressed enough in love of Liberty to accept and embrace many other things that unite us in backing a Ron Paul Presidency.
As latter-day saints (Mormons), we have an obligation, even duty, to be wise in selecting as representatives, men and woman who will take their oath of office seriously to Defend the United States Constitution. Ron Paul is by that standard alone the sole man in Congress whose voting record matches up to our scrutiny as being principle based rather than political expediency.
Congressman Ron Paul has a very unique record, some argue, unmatched in the nations history, never compromising on principles as he votes and serves in the Congress. This stance on principle has put Dr. Paul in a very unique position, where he stands out like a bright star in our time where sell out politicians “woo the people with sophistry” and merely put forth the chatter and “sweet talk” that “leads to victory.” Some are sick of wasting votes on “victory” when that victory entails a continued—and even a more aggressive and rapid rate—expansion of government into our daily lives.
Ron Paul has integrity. Ron Paul addresses issues that have not been addressed for decades, and perhaps never in our history, such as the monsterous, and Marxist, Federal Reserve Bank which is private, and represents implementation of a plank of the Communist Manifesto here in America. Passage of the Federal Reserve Act in 1913 was the enthroning of the “money trust” in this nation. It was with this that the super-elite gained their monopoly on banking and finance, giving them the greatest means of plunder the world has ever known. This topic and the criticism of the Marxist Federal Reserve Bank has been off the table as topic in American electoral politics ever since that vile legislation (Federal Reserve Act of 1913) was accepted as legitimate nearly 100 years ago.
Latter-day Saints who uphold Ron Paul can appreciate that other men, including those professing their own faith can desire and run for President, but that alone is by no means a reason for endorsement of such a candidate. In scripture, Latter-day saints are told:
“Nevertheless, when the wicked rule the people mourn.
“Wherefore, honest men and wise men should be sought for diligently, and good men and wise men ye should observe to uphold; otherwise whatsoever is less than these cometh of evil.” (D&C 98:9–10.)
Ezra Taft Benson pointed out that we must seek to have men and woman represent us who have all three of these attributes: honest, wise, and good. There would have been honest and good congressman in 1913 who voted for the Federal Reserve Act, not being “wise” to detect that it would enthrone the money trust. There are also “good” Americans, but they are essentially worthless to the cause of liberty, as are those they appoint to office to represent them. Ezra Taft Benson also spoke of such when he said:
“If America is destroyed, it may be by Americans who salute the flag, sing the national anthem, march in patriotic parades, cheer Fourth of July speakers—normally good Americans who fail to comprehend what is required to keep our country strong and free—Americans who have been lulled away into a false security.” (April 1968, General Conference Report)
Ron Paul meets the criteria of being honest, wise, and good. He has the support of good, honest, and wise Mormons around the country who “love and cherish freedom.” We don’t expouse or support socialism, whether it be a democratic or republican version. We don’t support or uphold the wicked and un-American “Obamacare” or it’s republican version “RomneyCare” nor whatever revamped hybrid version might come forth based upon the same force, coercion, and unconstitutional, liberty destroying mandates. We who support Ron Paul decry undeclared preemptive wars upon foreign nations, which runs counter to the Monroe Doctrine, of which Joseph Fielding Smith declared:
The Lord had promised, “I will fortify this land against all other nations” (2 Ne. 10:12). President Joseph Fielding Smith said that “the greatest and most powerful fortification in America is the ‘Monroe Doctrine.’ … It was the inspiration of the Almighty which rested upon John Quincy Adams, Thomas Jefferson and other statesmen, and which finally found authoritative expression in the message of James Monroe to Congress in the year 1823” (The Progress Of Man, Salt Lake City: Deseret Book Co., pp. 466–67).
America once stood for the Monroe Doctrine, which upheld a strong defense at home, but never an empire abroad—never a nation “in search of monsters to destroy.”
As latter-day saints supporting Ron Paul, we understand we have divine promises of protection in this land if we uphold the constitutional law of the land, which is, limited government bound down in constitutional chains. The US Constitution mandates a declaration of war before war is to be waged. Officers of government putting American servicemen and woman in harms way without such requisite (by the Constitutional law of land) declarations have no respect for the US Constitution and they are oath breakers.
There is much to be read and learned, and we invite all other citizens of the nation, and our own friends and neighbors both within and out of the church to join us in a renaissance of liberty, a return to principles of freedom, of small and limited constitutional government, of sound currency, defense of our borders at home and the withdrawl of our military from abroad, the re-institution of Habeas Corpus, the repeal of the USA Patriot Act which eliminated the 4th Amendment, along with the many other treasonous acts passed in Congress discussed in other pages on this site. These and other challenges face us and there is but one man in Washington D.C., today with the momentum, reputation, correct stance with a record to prove it who we support whole-heartedly: Ron Paul. Dr. Paul has the right answers, the right philosophy, the Constitutional comprehension and allegiance that merits our energies and support, and we join the grass roots in giving it to him.
