The U.S. Constitution is a fortress built by the Founders around the American people and is the country’s only defense against the internal destructive forces of evil, Barack Obama and his leftist comrades. To realize their dream of defeating America and having their way with its citizens, they must destroy that constitutional wall of protection.
The constraints placed upon government by our Founding Fathers via the Constitution led to the greatest explosion of freedom and prosperity ever witnessed in the history of civilization.
The man now occupying the Oval Office believes he has a better idea than did those freedom-loving patriots. This man sees unfairness and danger in liberty, and offers ‘hope and change’ through a massive federal government that controls commerce and constrains all personal liberty and self-determination.
Barack Obama pompously refers to himself as a constitutional scholar. More appropriately, he is a mortal enemy of the U.S. Constitution. He studies it as a military planner studies an adversary’s defensive positions in preparation for battle. Analyzing, examining and probing points of weaknesses to the constitutional fortress, he takes adversarial positions on every concept of a free republic. Attack, overwhelm, and overcome is the battle cry for the radical leftist from Chicago.
The condescending view with which Obama sees the Constitution and the American people is evident every time he opens his mouth. He becomes increasingly more brazen and arrogant and exhibits an unapologetic contempt for the laws of the nation and his oath of office to ‘preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.’
Historically, when Obama wanders off without his handlers he is prone to spout off his real Marxists’ beliefs like the ‘spread the wealth’ comment to Joe the Plumber. Seven years before that, however, he unleashed his pent-up rage from his long-held vendetta against the Constitution, telling a Chicago public station in 2001, that ‘redistributive change is needed.’ This was before he employed handlers, acting coaches, and PR specialists to keep him muzzled when not standing in front of his Teleprompter.
Consider Obama’s opinions about the Constitution, and note the animosity:
· ‘The Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth.’
· ‘It didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution.’
· ‘The Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. Says what the states can’t do to you. Says what the federal government can’t do to you, but doesn’t say what the federal government or state government must do on your behalf.’
· ‘The civil rights movement became so court-focused I think there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalition of powers through which you bring about redistributive change. In some ways, we still suffer from that.’
He is a master of deceit and knows that free Americans and their institutions are his enemies, and that he must destroy their constitutional defenses before he can dictate his will. He knows Sun Tzu’s principle in ‘The Art of War,’ that ‘all warfare is based on deception.’ Obama is well equipped for the art of deception, claiming exemption from truth in the name of the ‘greater’ or ‘common good.’
The country is under siege. He and his administration spent the first three years in office prosecuting, judging, and sentencing America for its ‘sins’ against collectivism. He led a federal invasion into the states, and declared all-out war on the American people, business, lending institutions, religion, energy, capitalism, and every aspect of traditional society. When Congress denied his wishes, he simply created a law and dictated his will upon the country. He crowed that when Congress refuses to act according to his plans, he feels an ‘obligation as President to do what he can without them.’
Congress has long been complicit with chipping away at the peoples’ rights by overstepping their authority, while at the same time ceding much of its legitimate power to the Executive branch and the bureaucracy. This acquiescence of its constitutional mandates relegates the third branch of government to an insignificant position of buffoonery. They are consigned to entertaining and bowing to the whims of the King like a troupe of court jesters.
Obama wants Americans unified around a collective culture and everyone reduced to the lowest common denominator. In other words, he wants a once proud and independent nation on its knees, begging favors and alms from an all-powerful federal government.
Like most wannabe tyrants, he uses military analogies when trying to rally the American people. He wants everyone to unify around his idealistic, collective culture, and follow his inexorable quest to change the country into a Marxist state. It’s another way of stifling dissent by suggesting that all ‘loyal’ Americans will march to the beat of his leftist drum against his ‘enemy.’
To achieve the progressives’ dream they must perform revolutionary surgery to remove the healthy tissue from the body politic of America and leave a blob of freedom destroying parasites and collectivists.
Barack Obama, the self-proclaimed ‘hope’ of the nation is an instrument of despair, a common despot, and a fraud. He is devoid of any love for our constitutional republic, and determined to still the beating heart of liberty.
The Constitution is the guardian of America and the country will surely die without its protection.
