One of the requirements for a nation to remain free and independent is that the voters act like the sovereigns they must be. A sovereign is the one that is ultimately responsible for a kingdom. It is the sovereign that must be informed, involved, and knowledgeable about the kingdom. If the sovereign neglects their responsibility, they will be replaced, not necessarily because the new sovereign will usurp the sovereignty but because the current sovereign has abdicated their right to sovereignty. This is what we are witnessing today.
A prime example of the people abdicating our right to sovereignty was the election of Mitt Romney to the Senate by the voters of Utah. In Utah, the Republicans are putting forth a resolution calling on Mitt Romney to either support President Trump or vacate his Senate seat. Remember, it was the same Republican party who made a choice between Mitt Romney and Mike Kennedy. The Republican party of Utah chose Romney.
Romney has always leaned more to the liberal side than the conservative side. He won the governorship of Massachusetts. At that time, he supported big government, abortion, and brought about health care controlled by the state. When he ran for the nomination for president, he changed his positions on all three and tried to tell people he was a conservative.
When Donald Trump ran for president in 2016, Romney spoke often about his disdain for Trump. Then when President Trump gave an indication, he might name Romney as Secretary of State, Romney kissed the feet of President Trump. Romney begged President Trump for his endorsement for the Senate in 2018. If Romney has been consistent about anything in his political career it is that he will say or do whatever he needs to at the time, but he always goes back to his liberal ways. That Romney double crossed the voters of Utah is very consistent with who Romney is and always has been.
The Utah Republicans have nobody to blame but themselves. They nominated a liberal who believes as all liberals do that the “ends always justify the means.” Romney never has been a conservative. Romney has always placed what is good for Romney above all else. That is what he did.
The lesson we must take from this episode is that unless we the people remain informed, involved and knowledgeable about our kingdom and who we choose to represent us, we will abdicate our right to sovereignty. The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) are very open about their desire to have the government become sovereign or supreme ruler dictating to the people how we are to live our lives, even what our thoughts are to be. When we, who advocate for the people to remain as sovereign but choose a person like Romney to represent us, we are only assisting the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) to reach their goal of total government control over the people.
We were told by our founders that they gave us a government that was established to perform the role of servant to a sovereign people, but it was our responsibility to keep it that way. We are not fulfilling our responsibility. To do so we must be more informed, involved, and knowledgeable so we will reject those like Romney who have as their goal what is good only for them and not for the people. People of Utah, you must rid the nation of unscrupulous representatives by removing Romney.
