Too often we bask in our comfortable complacency and rationalize that the ravages of war, economic disaster, famine, and earthquake cannot happen here. Those who believe this are either not acquainted with the revelations of the Lord, or they do not believe them. Those who smugly think these calamities will not happen, that they somehow will be set aside because of the righteousness of the Saints, are deceived and will rue the day they harbored such a delusion. - Ezra Taft Benson

Government is Sum of it's People

Powerful Message - Painting by Walter Rane

"If government is really the sum of it's people, it follows that they must be watchful, vigilant, and informed lest their liberties become gradually usurped by naive or unscrupluous leaders and they awaken to find their liberty gone."  - Benson
