Why I get so political sometimes

I keep telling myself that I MUST avoid political posts and just put other stories and statements on this blog page.  I've put several cooking articles here and I've kept track of my travels around the country but, when election seasons come around, I'm right back to the same old Political Rants.

It occurs to me that it might be advantageous to explain why I get so involved in political crap.

I believe that God made this country as a land, "Choice above all other lands" (Book of Mormon, 2 Nephi, Chapter 1) and that He means it to be the land where His choice people live. 

In order for people to be judged by their own actions, they must be free to act as they please.  No other country in the world or in the history of the world has offered the complete freedom we enjoy here. Or enjoyed in the past, anyway.

I believe that God brought together a group of Inspired individuals who were directly led, by God, to create this country as it was founded.  There is no question in my mind that the Founding Fathers were directly Inspired by God the Father through His Son, Jesus Christ, to create this country.  The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States are Divinely Inspired documents.

So, there you go.  I'm not only discussing politics but also Religion, in the same post!  What a terrible person I must be!

Today, we watch as the Democrat Party works to nominate someone to be their candidate for President of this Choice and Special land.  We see all those who aspire to this high office standing on a stage without one single American flag in evidence.  We see a group of people who proudly proclaim their support for killing babies, not only while still in the womb but even after "partial birth"!  What part of "birth" do they not understand?
Jeremiah, 1:5, KJV

We see the whole group agree with the concept of taking our means of self defense away from us, not only thus shredding the Second Amendment of our Divine Constitution, but the Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Amendments as well.

More frighteningly though is the national support for their front running candidate, Bernie Sanders, who is outspoken about his disdain for this country as founded and for the values our Founding Documents protect.

I think this picture pretty much covers his seriously flawed philosophy

Socialism has NEVER worked anywhere!  The settlers from the Mayflower even tried it.  That's why they almost starved and what the first Thanksgiving was really about.

Democrats cite the Scandinavian countries as socialist success stories.  If you are willing to live under the control of a central government and pay huge taxes then; well, maybe.

I guess I've strayed somewhat from the original point for which I was aiming.  The Prophet Lehi, cited in The Book Of Mormon, 2Nephi, Chapter 1, I think said it best and I quote verses 10 and 11 here:

"10 But behold, when the time cometh that they shall dwindle in aunbelief, after they have received so great blessings from the hand of the Lord—having a knowledge of the creation of the earth, and all men, knowing the great and marvelous works of the Lord from the creation of the world; having power given them to do all things by faith; having all the commandments from the beginning, and having been brought by his infinite goodness into this precious land of promise—behold, I say, if the day shall come that they will reject the Holy One of Israel, the true bMessiah, their Redeemer and their God, behold, the judgments of him that is cjust shall rest upon them.
11 Yea, he will bring aother nations unto them, and he will give unto them power, and he will take away from them the lands of their possessions, and he will cause them to be bscattered and smitten."

 Seems pretty clear to me.
