Love and Law

"If a person understands the teachings of Jesus, he or she cannot reasonably conclude that our loving Heavenly Father or His divine Son believes that Their love supersedes Their commandments. Consider these examples. When Jesus began His ministry, His first message was repentance. When He exercised loving mercy by not condemning the woman taken in adultery, He nevertheless told her, “Go, and sin no more” (John 8:11). Jesus taught, “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 7:21). The effect of God’s commandments and laws is not changed to accommodate popular behavior or desires. If anyone thinks that godly or parental love for an individual grants the loved one license to disobey the law, he or she does not understand either love or law.” ~ Elder Dallin H. Oaks

Haves and Have Nots

"The government will take from the 'haves' and give to the 'have nots.' Both have lost their freedom.  Those who 'have,' lost their freedom to give voluntarily of their own free will and in the way they desire.  Those who 'have not,' lost their freedom because they did not earn what they received.  They got 'something for nothing,' and they will neither appreciate the gift nor the giver of the gift." ~ Howard W. Hunter, "The Law of the Harvest," Devotional Address, Brigham Young University, March 8, 1966

Dedicate Ourselves

“Americans today should dedicate themselves to true patriotism. We should dedicate ourselves again to the enduring values of family, neighborhood, work, peace, and freedom which have characterized our country these past two centuries. Let us do this, and our patriotism will be strong and fulfilling.” ~ Ronald Reagan

America is Great

"Not until I went into churches of America and heard her pulpits flame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power.  America is great because America is good, and if America ceases to be good, America will cease to be great." ~ Alexis de Tocqueville

Libery and Virtue

"No people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffused and Virtue is preserved. On the Contrary, when People are universally ignorant, and debauched in their Manners, they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders." ~ Samuel Adams

Bastiat Quote

"The law has placed the collective force at the disposal of the unscrupulous who wish, without risk, to exploit the person, liberty, and property of others.
They have converted plunder into a right, in order to protect plunder.
And they have converted lawful defense into a crime, in order to punish lawful defense."  ~ Frederic Bastiat

The above quote seems to have come true with how our current politicians in D.C. are behaving.
