photo taken of a Statue of Liberty replica on June 16, 2012 on Balboa Island in California.

"Abide ye in the liberty wherewith ye are made free; entangle not yourselves in sin,
but let your hands be clean, until the Lord comes.
Doctrine and Covenants 88:86

The above photo is a small replica of the statue of Liberty. The original stands on Liberty Island in New York Harbor and was a gift to the United States from the people of France. The statue is a robed female figure representing Libertas, the Roman goddess of freedom, who bears a torch and a “tabula ansata” (a tablet evoking the law) upon which is inscribed the date of the Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776. A broken chain lies at her feet. The statue has become an icon of freedom and of the United States.

Today was a significant day. I voted in the primary elections to select the best candidate for the highest office in the country. There is no need to worry about voting for the lesser of two evils in this election, because there is a man on the ballot who truly knows what it means to keep the oath of office by upholding, defending and preserving the Constitution of the United States of America. This might be the last chance we might see such a man on the ballot one who supports a limited, constitutional government, low taxes, free markets, honest money, and a pro-America foreign policy. One who feels that our American troops should only go to war when necessary, have proper tools, and clear objectives. One who favors balanced budgets and not letting corporations control the President.

The man I voted for described himself at one of the Presidential debates as.. CONSISTENT.
The man I voted for has never been accused of being a flip-flopper.
The man I voted for is the closest man we have to one of our Founding Fathers.
Joseph Smith said, "... we shall have the satisfaction of knowing that we have acted conscientiously, and have used our best judgment. And if we have to throw away our votes, we had better do so upon a worthy rather than an unworthy individual who might make use of the weapon we put in his hand to destroy us." (Joseph Smith, Jr., Times and Seasons, IV:441)
