116: PRESERVE, PROTECT AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION

Ron Paul at speaking engagement on October 18th, that was free to the public.


Today the American people will be voting for the next President of the United States. Whoever wins the election will place their hand on a Bible and take the Oath of Office. It will either be the current President who will be re-elected or a successful business man. In my opinoin, neither our current Democrat President or the Republican candidate understand the Constitution better than this man in the photo.

Here are the words of the oath that the President vows at his inauguration:
...
"I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of President of United States, 
and will to the best of my ability, PRESERVE, PROTECT, and DEFEND 
the Constitution of the United States, so help me God."
...
The President of the United States solemly swears to Preserve the Constitution, Protect the Constitution, and Defend the Constitution. President J Reuben Clark. Jr. stated, "God provides that in this land of liberty, our political allegiance shall not run to individuals, no matter how great or how small they may be. Under His plan, our allegiance and the ONLY allegiance we owe as citizens of the United States, runs to our inspired Constitution which God himself set up."
.
Here are a few other quotes that I find to be very important regarding the Constitution:

President Ezra Taft Benson:
"Men who are wise, good, honest, who will uphold the Constitution of the United States in the tradition of the Founding Fathers, MUST be sought for diligently. This is our hope to restore government to its rightful role"

Prophet Joseph Smith:
"The Constitution of the United States is a a glorious standard, it is founded in the wisdom of God. It is a Heavenly Banner" .

President Joseph Fielding Smith:
"It is time the people of the United States were waking up with the understanding that if they don't save the Constitution from the dangers that threaten it, we will have a change of government"

President Ezra Taft Benson:
"Next to being one in worshipping God, there is nothing in this world upon which this Church should be more united than upholding and defending the Constitution of the United States.

President David O McKay:
"We therefore commend and encourage every person and every group who is sincerely seeking to study the Constitutional principles and awaken a sleeping and apathetic people to the alarming conditions that are rapidly advancing about us."

Sidenote:
"We have been placed on earth in trouble times. We live in a complex world with currents of conflict everywhere to be found. Political Machinations ruin the stability of nations."  Monson in General Conference 2008.

 Machinations = a scheming or crafty action or artful design intended to accomplish some usually evil end.

In my opinion if we have a Democrat President we will see a total economic collapse or if we have a Republican President we will be at war finding the "bad guys and killing them". (as stated and promised in the last Presidential Debate).

May the Lord have mercy on us.
