Ethics and Transparency in Politics

When an elected official is elected they swear Oath of Office to Uphold and Defend the Constitution of the United States of America from Enemies foreign and Domestic. On the Local levels that Oath is added to with the Constitution of the State that they reside in, and if the City or County is Chartered that too is added to the Oath of elected local municipalities. Now what is an Oath? An Oath is a promise a contract, something that is supposed to be worth it’s weight in gold! Yet the travesty of the matter is so many elected officials constantly violate that oath over and over and over again. Take Provo for instance. Here in this city we have a governing body that is not Chartered “a constitution as it were” that has not only increased the ordinances more than doubled since 2002, but that constantly violates ones God given Right to own property! There has been nearly 5500 property rights violations by the city these last four years, and illegal use of eminent domain for projects that the people do not want! The utility bill continues to be used and abused by like an abused spouse in an abusive relationship. Property Tax hike of 8% is still on the radar by current elected officials. The RAP tax and the Care Tax are under the radar of certain current elected officials. Certain city officials likes the fact that the Justice Court generates half a million dollars per year. Which is a travesty by itself, because the courts are supposed to be there to administer Law and Order, not punishment to the citizens residing with in the Corporation of Provo City. When the Corporation of NuSkin went in to pay for the purchase of 100 west. Current Mayor John Curtis forgave the debt, because and “extra million dollars was found with in the Community re-development agency”. To top it all off there is one man left in the final run off against John Curtis this election cycle by the name of Jason Christensen, whom by the way is the complete opposite of these violations. Whom wants to Charter the City of Provo to bind the hands of current elected officials. To repeal at least half the size of the current code book and bring accountability back to the City of Provo once again. Something that the city has been missing for at least the past 30 years. He is someone that knows all the issues of all the neighborhoods around the city, because he has actually gotten out visiting with the people. Jason Christensen has sent countless of press releases to the numerous press agencies, he has spoken out at city council in front of the camera of Fox News TV, he has even tagged and sent private messages to certain journalists via twitter and facebook, and yet not one mention of his name, his stances, or comments. It is almost like that they are in bed with the current establishment politicians?! My hope in this statement is that accountability, responsibility, honesty, becomes renewed, and that the current media returns back to their roots of the Walter Crondike era.

The Ploys of Discrimination

Before I speak to you today as to certain evil agendas, let me first say that it is simply wrong for anyone to be discriminated against, and that all men have certain inalienable rights before ones maker. Those rights includes the right to own and be safe with in ones own property. The right to defend ones self, family, and country men. The rights for free speech and worshiping of one’s God. These God given rights with in the United States of America are supposed to be protected by our Supreme Law of the Land, the US Constitution. “Article 6 Section 2″

Lets spend a little time with Property Rights. In Exodus 20:15 “Thou shall not steal” which presupposes the basic right and acknowledgment that each individual owns his or her own property, and that it is a sin to steal that property. In Exodus 20:17  “Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbor’s.” To covet means “to desire inordinately; to desire that which it is unlawful to obtain or possess; in a bad sense.” Then the words “thy neighbor’s”  admits to the fact that property is being owned by ones neighbors. In the Doctrine and Covenants the Lord said this regarding to property, and our rights. “We believe that men should appeal to the civil law for redress of all wrongs and grievances, where personal abuse is inflicted or the right of property or character infringed, where such laws exist as will protect the same; but we believe that all men are justified in defending themselves, their friends, and property, and the government, from the unlawful assaults and encroachments of all persons in times of exigency, where immediate appeal cannot be made to the laws, and relief afforded.” In Ether 14:2 we read “Wherefore every man did cleave unto that which was his own, with his hands, and would not borrow neither would he lend; and every man kept the hilt of his sword in his right hand, in the defence of his property and his own life and of his wives and children.”

Since I mentioned the US Constitution lets look at the fourth amendment. “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.” Which once again would presuppose that property is to be owned and that one has a legal constitutionally binding right to be safe with in such property. In the Fifth Amendment we read “No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.” Which clearly indicates that property is NOT to be seized or violated unless that property is justly compensated to the owner themselves, upon the owner’s approval. John Adams wrote this regarding Property Rights “Property is surely a right of mankind as real as liberty.…The moment
that the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the laws of god, and that
there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence.
Property must be sacred or liberty cannot exist.” Then the Father of the Constitution James Madison wrote this regarding Property “Government is instituted to protect property of every sort; as well as that which lies in the various rights of individuals…. this being the end of government, that alone is a just government, which impartially secures, to every man, whatever is his own.”

Now you may be asking what does property rights have anything to do with discrimination ordinances? It is simple, in this day and age it is the very ones fighting for homosexuality that are promoting these “discrimination” ordinances. They are seeking for and many cases have succeeded government to mandate property owners to rent to such persons, despite ones free will and choice. They force businesses with in their own property to hire such persons, regardless of the business model. If we look at the State of California and other State’s laws regarding such matters they even force property owners to implement transexual bathrooms. Utah is attempting to institute such an atrocity. In cities like Provo and others where property rights violations have exceeded over 5000, and is currently working on a “discrimination” ordinance. Which would only allow that number of property rights violations to sky rocket.

Could you only imagine if a family oriented business with the reputation of promoting family values is forced to hire someone that promotes the contrary? Could you only imagine that a renter that religiously believes in the practice of homosexuality as a sin is forced against his or her will to rent to such persons living contrary to their beliefs? Could you only imagine that churches that believes that homosexuality is a sin is forced to adopt their bathrooms to adopt transsexual restrooms? Could you imagine that private or public owned schools is forced to adopt transexual locker rooms and rest rooms?

Fact of the matter these people are only pandering to the evil communistic agenda. Lets read goals 25, 26, 27 of the communistic goals for world domination published by the FBI in the Congressional library in 1963.

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”

A well known fabian socialist George Bernard Shaw had this to say regarding property. “Socialism, reduced to its simplest legal and practical expression, means the complete discarding of the institution of private property by transforming it into public property and the division of the resultant income equally and indiscriminately among the entire population.”
Then the first goal of the Communist Manifesto reads. “First Plank: Abolition of property in land and the application of all rents of land to public purposes.”

In closing lets all pray together, work together, and restore the Law of this land, the US Constitution. Let’s restore our God given rights as Americans, and lets repent and worship the God of this Land the Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ, amen.
