Before getting into the important news of the day, I wish to remind readers of some pertinent passages from the Book of Helaman, in the Book of Mormon:
21 But behold, Satan did stir up the hearts of the more part of the Nephites, insomuch that they did unite with those bands of robbers, and did enter into their covenants and their oaths, that they would protect and preserve one another in whatsoever difficult circumstances they should be placed, that they should not suffer for their murders, and their plunderings, and their stealings.
22 And it came to pass that they did have their signs, yea, their secret signs, and their secret words; and this that they might distinguish a brother who had entered into the covenant, that whatsoever wickedness his brother should do he should not be injured by his brother, nor by those who did belong to his band, who had taken this covenant.
37 And it came to pass that the Lamanites did hunt the band of robbers of Gadianton; and they did preach the word of God among the more wicked part of them, insomuch that this band of robbers was utterly destroyed from among the Lamanites.
38 And it came to pass on the other hand, that the Nephites did build them up and support them, beginning at the more wicked part of them, until they had overspread all the land of the Nephites, and had seduced the more part of the righteous until they had come down to believe in their works and partake of their spoils, and to join with them in their secret murders and combinations.
39 And thus they did obtain the sole management of the government, insomuch that they did trample under their feet and smite and rend and turn their backs upon the poor and the meek, and the humble followers of God.
There is quite a bit more in the Book of Mormon about how secret combinations operate but one thing that was clear – this corruption reached the highest levels of Nephite government and eventually proved to be the undoing of the entire society.
As the Book of Mormon is a prophetic work written for our time and for our part of the world, it is naive to believe that the USA and its institutions will always be above reproach and above corruption.Mormon and Moroni knew this and did what they could to warn us about it.
Keep that in mind about the latest revelations when it comes to Hillary Clinton being openly for sale while Secretary of State and using her “charity” foundation to peddle influence. If you were rich and powerful and wanted something from the State Department under Clinton, you got it. This wasn’t just among US citizens but in great part among powerful foreign interests.
While the Hillary health issues are legitimate to raise, her gross corruption in using her power in government to benefit her friends and donors overshadows that several times over.
At the moment, there are really only two choices for which direction our federal government is going to take. We can go in the direction of Donald Trump, who will seek to enforce the laws and push us towards the Constitution and its principles. Maybe not as much as you would like it but certainly we would be going in a direction that we haven’t in a long time. Or we can go in the direction of open corruption brought to us by Hillary Clinton and her minions are peddling. If you really think that she is being honest in saying “oh, it won’t happen again”, then you deserve the kind of government we’re going to get and it’s not going to one for us little people. This is of course what socialism always does – flatters the poor and the needy with delusions of riches to get their support and votes but in reality, only the well-connected get off by enriching themselves. That’s why modern prophets warned against it and the harder version of communism.
The elections of 2008 and 2012 were gravely important but they didn’t go the way of liberty and the Constitution. Great damage has been done to the Republic, for anyone paying attention. The Rule of Law means nothing as powerful figures easily get away with open violations of the law(not just Clinton but George Soros, Jon Corzine) while your average American gets the full force and weight of the government falling on them when they screw up. If you want to put us on the path of a free country then you’re not going to get that with the Crooked Clinton’s in the White House once again. You’re not going to get a better country by “voting your conscious” for Gary “I love aborted babies and forcing you to bake a gay wedding cake” Johnson or Evan “My fat cat donors want me to throw Utah to Hillary by duping enough Mormons” McCullin. You don’t have to like everything Trump does but he’s the only choice any freedom or constitution loving voter can make.
