Health Care Dictatorship: Mormon Policy?

Dictatorship in Harry Reid's Senate Health Bill "But those who don't purchase insurance (even with those incentives) will face fines - $75 the first year, $350 the second, and $750 after that."

And what do you suppose happens if you don't want insurance and don't pay the fines? You will not be hounded for years by IRS tax collectors, right? Surely you are not going to have your property confiscated as if you were American colonial rabble subservient to the wishes of His Majesty, King of England, wouldn't you say? Certainly government agents will not attempt to handcuff you and drag you to jail if you resist having your property taken, and there is no chance you will be shot if you fight being arrested, right?

Harry Reid is an addicted dictator like all the other "liberal progressives" in congress. He wants to think of himself as a Mormon. But no true Mormon would attempt to force his brothers to buy health care insurance. Mormons (except Harry Reid) swear by free agency, which requires political freedom.

Teaching of the Mormon religion regarding political freedom:
"All men are, or ought to be free, possessing unalienable rights, and the high and noble qualifications of the laws of nature and of self-preservation, to think, and act, and say as they please, while they maintain a due respect to the rights and privileges of all other creatures, infringing upon none." (HC 5:156)

Notice that Mormon teaching does not say men need to be free to, "act as they please except in the case of health care insurance." An honest Mormon who lives in accordance with Mormon teachings is far more libertarian than the so-called "liberal progressives" of the Democratic Party. Compare the Mormon teaching above with a principle of the Libertarian Party:

From Libertarian Party Statement of Principles:
"We hold that all individuals have the right to exercise sole dominion over their own lives, and have the right to live in whatever manner they choose, so long as they do not forcibly interfere with the equal right of others to live in whatever manner they choose."

All Mormons should call upon leaders of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints to denounce and excommunicate Senator Harry Reid. If Mormon leaders cannot take such a principled stand, why should anyone ever want to consider joining the Mormon Church?

Is America now a fascist state?

a socialist governmental system led by a dominant party which seeks to control industry and commerce, and uses legislation and governmental decree to force Utopian programs on people.

one's natural state of being; a governmental system reflecting one's natural state, including voluntary funding and voluntary willingness to join and cooperate with some rules, but with no restrictions forced on people.

If you are just waking up to your innate libertarian side and want to investigate deeper the underlying nonsense of Obama's religion of government worship, give yourself the pleasure of reading Ayn Rand's epic and masterful novel, Atlas Shrugged

"God's laws will keep your minds at peace, because peace IS His Will, and His laws are established to uphold it. His are the laws of freedom, but yours are the laws of bondage. Since freedom and bondage are irreconcilable, their laws CANNOT BE UNDERSTOOD TOGETHER. The laws of God work only for your good, and there ARE no other laws beside His. Everything else is merely lawLESS, and therefore chaotic." -Jesus Christ in A Course in Miracles

For the last election year studied (1998) some of the highest percentage of votes for Libertarian Party candidates were for candidates who had been studying free of charge the lessons of: Course in Political Miracles

For a great discussion on Christianity vs. State Socialism see: Christianity vs. State Socialism

“I did not understand what made me free, nor what my freedom is, nor where to look to find it. Father, I have searched in vain until I heard Your Voice directing me. Now I would guide myself no more. For I have neither made nor understood the way to find my freedom. But I trust in You. You Who endowed me with my freedom as Your holy Son will not be lost to me. Your Voice directs me." (Prayer from A Course in Miracles)

I'm pretty sure most of the GA's are also in favor of taxation. Should they all be excom'd as well?

Excommunication? Puh-leaze. I'm no fan of Harry R. by ANY stretch of the imagination, but if we're going to start excommunicating people for wrong thinking, there wouldn't be anyone left in the church!

Quite frankly, I can't think of a much more un-Christlike posture you could take, short of the death penalty.

The Libertarian Way: So Much More Than The NAP!

How often do we hear the word "libertarian" being used in contexts relating to politics or some kind of political understanding? Even most dictionary definitions of "libertarian" emphasize political implications.

Yet libertarians will never experience the full personal benefit of their libertarian impulse, and never be completely successful in any political activism they undertake, unless they understand the Libertarian Way is much deeper and more basic than concern with political conditions.

Before there is politics ... before there are relationships ... there is life. When human beings feel their deepest-rooted inner desires (as opposed to addiction to intellectualism for the purpose of avoiding the depths of their being), they sense inside themselves a yearning for the fullness of life to shine forth and be experienced.

"Fullness" is the key. Liberal-progressive dictators will tell you their programs and agendas help people have a better life, but th…

Lifting Others Up To The Libertarian Way

Probably everyone has experienced moments of the fullness of life: the enthralling love that radiates from our heart when it seems we have met our destined soulmate, the joy that explodes out of our being when at the very last split second our team scores the improbable win of the century, the peace that flows from the depths of our soul when the sunrise suddenly bathes our mountain fishing lake and all seems momentarily "on earth as it is in heaven."

The fullness of life is within us, but doesn't too often emanate from most of us because our minds employ many devices for closing down our being. Yet there is a Way which leads us to constant heart and soul opening and nearly uninterrupted experience of the fullness of life. In common street language this Way is often called "live and let live." Although this encompasses all areas of life, when practiced in the context of people's political interactions it is called The Libertarian Way.

Notice that when we a…

Jesus Christ Does Not Favor Taxation

Heading into midterm election season in America we are faced with an illusory alternative: Caesar in Democratic Party clothing, or in some districts Little Caesar in Republican Party clothing. Apparently what makes the illusion saleable is the mistaken idea (used by Caesar as propaganda) that Jesus Christ was a socialist who supported taxation.

Fascists, communists, and progressives (all three branches of socialism), even after all the misery they have created the world over in the last 100 to 150 years, even now still aim a loud speaker toward us blaring the long broken record of their propaganda mantra: “Jesus was a socialist,” by which they try to convince us that Jesus advocated using government force or threat of force to redistribute wealth.

We’ve addressed the "socialist" issue in the past (See Jesus Christ's Love vs. Obama Style Socialism)

Nonetheless, the illusion could not be sold to the public if it were not for modern conservatives insisting that Jesus supported…
