I think most of my readers have some understanding of who Ezra Taft Benson was. Religiously, he was an Apostle and became President of the LDS Church. Politically, he was Secretary of Agriculture under President Eisenhower, and, an outspoken conservative. He raised the alarm over the socialist revolution he could see happening in America. I thought it would be interesting to compare some of his teachings with a famous political and religious leader of our time and see how they match up.
Forty years have passed and the world has turned upside-down. What happened to us? How is it that we could have fallen so far, so fast? Do we believe the Constitution to be the law of the land inspirited by God, or, is it just another piece of paper? Is the American dream of being able to exercise our God given agency still important, or, are we better off having our lives planned for us by the intellectual elite?
It's time to stop being shy and timid in defense of our liberties. There isn't a day that goes by, in which I do not worry about being punished for speaking my mind. Never the less, it is the right thing to do. I'm far more worried about what will happen if I say nothing. If I can do it, you can.
