In light of SB1070 and the gleeful backing of its passage I would like to demonstrate why it is bad. I also thought it ironic that people eagerly dispossess their God given rights.
The Declaration of Indepence says that these rights are given us of God to All men equally. It also says men have the right to dispose of governments that do not uphold these rights.
Thoughts by Will Griggs
Classic examples of what happens when you let government get out of control among others :
Waco Rules of Engagement
Missing . The movie about the men that were killed with US government approval during the US backed coup in Chile.
The new assassination of Americans without due process. It's one thing if there is a declared war but an entirely different thing without it (the US hasn't declared war since WWII). Even then it's not OK if they are able to be captured instead of fighting in combat.
Holding of Americans in jail that have done no crime without cause or due process.
The greatest of all misdeeds by our government against its own people, the Civil War.
Doctrine and Covenants states 134:5 :
We believe that all men are bound to sustain and uphold the respective governments in which they reside, while protected in their inherent and inalienable rights by the laws of such governments; and that sedition and rebellion are unbecoming every citizen thus protected, and should be punished accordingly; and that all governments have a right to enact such laws as in their own judgments are best calculated to secure the public interest; at the same time, however, holding sacred the freedom of conscience.
This is my belief.
Just to clearify. I don't desire a violent revolution. I desire a peaceful one by the education of the people. When the people our educated we can have a nonviolent revolution every 2-4 years.
