Re: The Constitution and the LDS Faith

24 years after the restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ began, Joseph Smith was sitting in a jail in Carthage, Illinois with his brother Hyrum, John Taylor, and Willard Richards. It was June of 1844. The Smith brothers were in jail to face charges for ordering the destruction of a local newspap...

Re: The Constitution and the LDS Faith

It's important to keep in mind that all these rights are important. They are building blocks for our freedoms. The most important is the 1st - Freedom of religion, freedom of speech, press, assembly, and petition. Listed 2nd is the right to keep and bear arms. Of note, a short 30 years after the Bil...

The Constitution and the LDS Faith

Anyone familiar with the LDS faith knows that LDS folks have a peculiar relationship between the law and the way they conduct their lives. In a nutshell, we believe in conducting ourselves lawfully, honorably, and being good citizens (wherever we live). This is laid out in the 12th Article of Faith....

Which one has donated more money to Democratic campaigns? Honest question.
Probably Ronald Reagan. He was a Dem for 20+ years and Chairman of the California Democratic Party. He eventually became a Republican in 1962. The rest is history.

Re: Smart gun laws

Some FBI statistics on Murders and the weapons used, 2015. With all the chatter about banning AR-15's, I thought it would be interesting to look at some comparisons. You'll notice that murder by rifle is down the list. Handgun - 6,447 Knives - 1,544 Hands, fists, feet - 624 Blunt objects - 437 (club...

Re: Utahns, how excited are you about Mitt Romney

If you could not care less what I have to say, then why post? Odd. For the record, I am not a Trump hater. Calling out the falsehoods or inanities of the man does not make one a hater. It just means that person has issues regarding statements or actions of the man. And also for the record, I have c...

Trump has governed more conservatively than I thought/feared he might. I hope that he continues doing so.
Yes he has. He has governed lawfully and very conservatively, and well. Shocking to most, he has been keeping his campaign promises.

Re: Utahns, how excited are you about Mitt Romney

Yes he did. That is a plus. Surely though you are not using that to defend Trump as a man of his word? Trump is a man of his word when it comes to the rule of law and the constitution. He has broken his marriage vows repeatedly; he has broken his contractual agreements repeatedly; I don't care. So ...

Re: Utahns, how excited are you about Mitt Romney

Donald Trump has endorsed Mitt Romney, so now all you Trump supporters have to support Mitt or you're not making America great. And all you Trump haters will have to eat your hyper-criticisms of Trump's commitment to being conservative. The Heritage Foundation says Trump is more conservative than, ...
