The Prophet Joseph Smith
"Even this nation will be on the verge of crumbling to pieces and tumbling to the ground and when the Constitution is on the brink of ruin this people will be the staff upon which the nation shall lean and they shall bear the Constitution away from the very verge of destruction” (Joseph Smith Papers, LDS Church Historical Archives, Box 1, March 10, 1844).
President John Taylor
"When the people shall have torn to shreds the Constitution of the United States the Elders of Israel will be found holding it up to the nations of the earth and proclaiming liberty and equal rights to all men" (Jornal of Discourses 21:8).
President J. Reuben Clark, Jr.
"When the Constitution of the United States hangs, as it were, upon a single thread, they [the people of the United States of America] will have to call for the 'Mormon' elders to save it from utter destruction; and they [the Elders] will step forth and do it" (JD 2:182, February 18, 1855).
