Utah State Legislative Overreach.
- Excerpt:"Ben accepts as truth the postulate that we should not and cannot force (by government or any other means) any person to make good choices. Though it is difficult we need to allow individuals the right to make mistakes and the right to make great decisions."
Defending the Constitution
- Excerpt:"Ben believes the time to uphold our Constitution is now. As a people we need to decide are we going to truly support the Constitution or are we going to be involved in the creation of a new world order?"
Education in Utah.
