The Russians are moving back toward the old days of the Soviet. For those of your who haven’t heard, Vladimir Putin was instated as the Russian Federation’s Prime Minister. Putin’s hand picked successor, President Dmitry Medved, called on his mentor to take the #2 spot at his side.
You really can’t teach an old dog new tricks. Putin has continued to install his version of soviet democracy and has found a way to keep himself in power, indefinitely. As long as he can continue to pick succeeding presidents, and be chosen by them as PM, then he is within in the legal bounds of the Russian Constitution and can control the country from “behind the scenes.” Anybody not see the secret combination there? (for an example of what is happening see The Book of Mormon – books of Alma, Helaman, 3rd Nephi)
What is interesting is that American history has also begun to repeat itself. The problem is that we are nearing the point of Bacon’s Rebellion, which means that we still have another hundred years before any real change will begin to take place. Yes, I’m sorry, Mr. Obama. You will not bring the type of change that this country needs. Higher taxes, more welfare, anti-gun laws, and a host of other socialist, totalitarian initiatives are not what the people want, regardless of what you tell them.
“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
has been supplanted by
We the Oligarchs & Politicians of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Oligarchical Plutocracy, promote greed and injustice, insure domestic unrest, provide for our own defense from the people, promote favoritism and socialist welfare, and delete the blessings of liberty for those not of our class and their posterity, do ordain to destroy the Constitution of the United States of America.
I will not back down from what I just wrote. I own it, it is mine, my own. This is how I feel about what our elected officials are doing to this country. “Why not change it,” you ask? I am doing what I can. I am raising a family in righteousness, on sound principles of morality and ethics. Expressing my disapproval and walking in line with my words. I work hard for my support and the support of my family. I have, thus far, put myself through school and have not been privy to the handouts of favoritism because I am of the despised race in this country.
Martin Luther King Jr. once hoped for a day when men would be judged by the content of their character and not by the color of their skin. We are little closer to his dream then were were all those years ago. Indeed, we seem to be drifting farther from it.
I have stood up as one to be counted. I have stood up as one who will defend the Constitution of the United States from those who would destroy it. The Prophet Joseph Smith said in 1844, “There will be two great political parties in this country. One will be called the Republican, and the other the Democrat party. These two parties will go to war and out of these two parties will spring another party which will be the Independent American Party.” We see this is already happening. He continued, “The United States will spend her strength and means warring in foreign lands until other nations will say, “Let’s divide up the lands of the United States”, then the people of the U. S. will unite and swear by the blood of their fore-fathers, that the land shall not be divided.”
Interesting, but plausible? You bet it is! How much money do we owe China? How much money do we owe the Saudi royals? Eventually, they will want payment. The Chinese war machine is growing at an alarming rate. They are over populated and running out of land. If they don’t invade Central Asia for land and resources, what will keep them from turning to the United States and requesting land as payment?
How will you defend this country and our Constitution? On whose side will you be counted, those who seek to destroy what we have, or those who seek to restore what we had?
