Robert Higgins wrote THIS Open Letter to Mormons Regarding Ron Paul...
To my fellow Latter-day Saint brothers and sisters, this letter is a pleading with each of you to consider supporting Congressman Ron Paul in his candidacy for President of these united States of America... I submit to you that candidate Mitt Romney, even though he is LDS, is very much unacceptable. Please, compare his voting record, his speeches and positions to those of Congressman Ron Paul's and remember this:
"We live in an age of deceit. ... Even within the Church we have been warned that 'the ravening wolves are amongst us, from our own membership, and they, more than any others, are clothed in sheep's clothing, because they wear the habiliments of the priesthood.' (J. Reuben Clark, Jr., CR, April, 1949, p. 163.)"
"No greater immediate responsibility rests upon members of the Church, upon all citizens of this Republic and of neighboring Republics, than to protect the freedom vouchsafed by the Constitution of the United States."
--President David O. McKay
What is Liberty? Where has it gone? What will it take to get it back?
WE THE PEOPLE!
IT’S AT THE TOP OF THE CONTRACT BETWEEN THE PEOPLE AND ITS INTENDED REPRESENTATIVE FORM OF GOVERNMENT!
We can have liberty if we think we can. But if you think you can’t... you’re right!
