"Is there any one so naive as to think that thingswill right themselves without a fight? There has been nomore fight in us than there is a bunch of sheep, and wehave been much like sheep.
Freedom was never brought topeople on a silver platter, nor maintained with whisk brooms and lavender sprays. And do not think that the usurpations, intimidations, and impositions are being doneto us through inadvertence or mistake; The whole course isdeliberately planned and carried out; its purpose is todestroy the Constitution and our constitutionalgovernment; then to bring chaos, out of which the new Statism with its slavery is to arise..." [Church NewsPPNS pg. 327]

"The ravening wolves are amongst us, from our ownmembership, and they, more than any others, are clothed insheep’s clothing because they wear the habiliments of thepriesthood…we should be careful of them." [Church News 6/15 1940]

"This gigantic worldwide struggle more and moretakes on the form of war to the death. We shall do well and wisely so to face and so to enter it. And we must alltake part. Indeed, we all are taking part in that struggle, whether we will or not. Upon its final issue,liberty lives or dies.
"This earth-wide conflict has taken the form ofseizing without compensation from the man who has, andgiving to the man who has not; of taking from the workerthe fruits of his work, and giving to the idler who doesnot work. It has from its very nature become an economic, uncompensated leveling downward, not upwards of the whole mass. That this result may in one country be reached byconfiscatory taxation, and in another by direct seizure,is a mere matter of method. The results is the same. In some countries outright seizure and confiscation are already openly and shamelessly practiced. All is done in the name of the state, as if it were deity – as if thestate, not God gives all. Even into the field of family relationship, which, next to man’s relationship to God, isthe most precious and dearest of all relationships, this modern State is thrusting its polluting hand. In some lands this new State is robbing the parents of custody of their children, it is forbidding the parents to teach andadmonish the children in the ways of righteous living; it is teaching the children that officers of State, not God,shall be looked to for a guide as to standards of life!Into the field of religion, the holy of holies of the soulof man, this modern world State also enters, to dethrone God and exalt the State into God’s place. This is the archestreason of them all! For man robbed of God becomes a brute.This sin must be felt, not told, for words cannot measure the height and breadth of this iniquity; nor can human mind encompass the punishment of those who shall commit this sin." [1938 Vital Speeches]

"The statement of the Lord, “I have established theConstitution” puts it in the position in which it would beif it were written in this D&C itself. This makes the constitution the WORD OF THE LORD to us." [CR Apr 1935]

"God provided that in this land of liberty, ourpolitical allegiance shall run not to individuals, thatis, to government officials, no matter how great or how small they shall be. Under His plan the only allegiance we owe as citizens of the United States, runs to our inspired Constitution which God himself set up.…This principle ofallegiance to the Constitution is basic to our freedom.
"I wish to say with all the earnestness I possessthat when you see any curtailment of these liberties I have named, when you see government invading any of these realms of freedom which we have under our Constitution, you will know that they are putting shackles on your liberty,and that tyranny is creeping upon you, no matter who curtails these liberties or who invades these realms, and no matter what the reason and excuse therefore may be.
"I say to you that the price of liberty is andalways has been blood, human blood, and if our libertiesare lost, we shall never regain them except at the priceof blood. They must not be lost.” [The Improvement Era, 43,[July 1940] 444.]

"Once in debt, interest is your companion everyminute of the day and night; you cannot shun it or slipaway from it; you cannot dismiss it; it yields neither toentreaties, demands, or orders; and whenever you get inits way or cross its course or fail to meet its demands, it crushes you."
