Stand With Rep. Wimmer in Utah

Posted by Marty Jensen

The following is a copy of the email I sent to my Utah state legislators. I encourage all Utahns to support the efforts of Representative Carl Wimmer in defending our liberties.
Representative Pitcher,

Please stand with Rep. Wimmer in principle and action in being a staunch and active defender of our liberties, against the increasing tyranny of the Federal government. Following is a copy of the email I sent to Rep. Wimmer. I hope you feel as I do, for we are most surely in perilous times, and this is no time to by shy in our defense of our liberties.

Representative Wimmer,

I read the following statement, which was attributed to you by the Utah Valley Daily Herald:

"The absolute overbearing audacity of the federal government in threatening Texas while Texas is trying to protect their citizens should really offend any red-blooded American."

I agree with you completely. The Federal government is increasingly disregarding its Constitutionally defined duties and restrictions, the result of which is a encroachment on the liberties of the citizens of this nation. The TSA has gone far beyond the reasonable conduct of it's mission, and I fear the spread of Federal government thuggery beyond airport security. I do not want to live in a police state, and I believe that airline travel may be only marginally safer as a result of the TSA. Rather, arm every passenger on board every flight and see how far a hijacker gets. Stripping citizens of their civil liberties will not make them safer.

I applaud and support your introduction of a bill to restrict the TSA's activities. Please continue your courageous leadership in opposing Federal usurpation of states' powers. Please continue to safeguard our liberties on all fronts.

Thank you for all you do,

Marty W. Jensen


Making Sense of Today's World

Why do we see a constant assault on life, liberty, and Constitutional freedoms? Perhaps this quote by President Ezra Taft Benson, prophet of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormons") sheds some light:

"I testify that wickedness is rapidly expanding in every segment of our society. It is more highly organized, more cleverly disguised, and more powerfully promoted than ever before. Secret combinations lusting for power, gain, and glory are flourishing. A secret combination that seeks to overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations, and countries is increasing its evil influence and control over America and the entire world." (October 1988)

What we are seeing is the work of those President Benson describes. We must be aware of the agenda of the enemies of freedom, and use the freedom-preserving power of the Constitution to thwart their evil designs.
