Utah Welcomes Ron Paul
Thursday Oct. 18, 2012
1:30 p.m. Doors Open at Noon
UVCC Center (Formerly the McKay Event Center) at the Utah Valley University Campus (UVU)
SPREAD THE WORD, GIVE A HEART FELT WELCOME TO THE MAN WHO WAS GIVEN THE “CAPTAIN MORONI AWARD” BEFORE A UTAH AUDITORIUM IN 2004!
This StatesMan gives real solutions & would right off the bat:
- Cut $1 Trillion from the budget in his first year, balance the budget in 3 years
- Abolish 5 Federal Agencies*
- Bring the troops home and cease the Empire, ending the enriching of the moneychangers evil military-industrial-banking Complex.**
* Federal agencies are unconstitutional, putting all three branches of government—Executive, Judicial, and Legislative—under one head.
** US Troops overwhelmingly back this plan & were the top donators to the Ron Paul campaign, rather than Goldman Sachs.
Gordon B. Hinckley, in alignment with Ron Paul’s stated policies:
“What a dismal station we have reached in this nation where we have borrowed and spent and failed to repay. At the close of 1994, every man, woman, and child in the United States owed as his or her part of the national debt $17,805.64. Think of it. It is a disgrace. It affects all of our monetary policies and all of our commerce. It burdens us with taxes from which there is little or no relief.” (Gordon B. Hinckley, “These Noble Pioneers,” Fireside at BYU, Feb. 2, 1997.)
“We sometimes are prone to glorify the great empires of the past … But there is a darker side to every one of them. There is a grim and tragic overlay of brutal conquest, of subjugation, of repression, and an astronomical cost in life and treasure.” (Gordon B. Hinckley, “War and Peace,” Ensign, May 2003, 78)
“No one can ever estimate the terrible suffering incident to these wars across the globe. Lives numbered in the millions have been lost. The terrible wounds of war have left bodies maimed and minds destroyed. Families have been left without fathers and mothers. Young people who have been recruited to fight have, in many instances, died while those yet alive have had woven into the very fabric of their natures elements of hatred which will never leave them. The treasure of nations has been wasted and will never be recovered.
“The devastation of war seems so unnecessary and such a terrible waste of human life and national resources.” (Gordon B. Hinckley, “An Unending Conflict, a Victory Assured,” Ensign, Jun 2007, 4–9)
“I have lived long enough now to know that many political campaigns, for example, are the same. I have heard again and again the sweet talk that leads to victory but never seems to be realized thereafter.” (Gordon B. Hinckley, Standing for Something, pp. 170–171.)
