EARTHQUAKES and the RING OF FIRE:
There's more to this than meets the eye.
ZARAHEMLA and THE RIVER SIDON
The scenario presented in the Book of Mormon took place throughout all of North America
and South America. [It is exceedingly clear, from a genealogical research standpoint; that
Chapter 8 of 3rd Nephi, is a recital of damage in the Americas, beginning with the Nephite
main capital City of Zarahemla, in South America, and proceeding forth up
into the highways and roads, and the generic cities of North America.]

↑ upΛ LEGAL: COURT INFORMATION & RECORDS
Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is
wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
Noted by John Adams,
The Second President of the United States of America.

The U.S. Constitution is not a law, but it empowers the people to make laws.
The Constitution acknowledges that the people have all power not reserved to itself.
The Constitution is not law to us, but it makes provision for us whereby we can make laws.
Where it provides that no one shall be hindered from worshiping God according to his
own conscience, is a law.  No legislature can enact a law to prohibit it.
The Constitution provides to regulate bodies of men and not individuals.
The only fault I find with the Constitution is, it is not broad enough
to cover the whole ground.  Although it provides that all men
shall enjoy religious freedom,  yet it does not provide
the manner by which the freedom can be preserved,
nor for the punishment of Government officers who
refuse to protect the people in their religious rights,
or punish those mobs, states, or communities who
interfere with the rights of the people on account
of their religion.  Its sentiments are good, but it
provides no means of enforcing them.  It has
but this one fault.  Under its provision, a man
or a people who are able to protect themselves
can get along well enough; but those who have the misfortune to
be weak or unpopular are left to the merciless rage of popular fury.
The Constitution should contain a provision that every officer
of the Government who should neglect or refuse to extend
the protection guaranteed in the Constitution should be
subject to capital punishment - Joseph Smith, Jr. (
