We the people must not let the Constitution of the United States die
Today, it would seem, that Barack Obama has run into brick walls in the form of the various courts in the land. Which is a good thing. But the still scary thing is that Hillary Clinton is still out there with high poll numbers. Still high enough to win her the Democratic nomination for the Presidency of the United States of America. This is a woman with scandal after scandal, out on the campaign trail touting her nearly 40 years of public service that somehow makes her the perfect choice for the next President. I am still trying to figure out what she has done all of those nearly 40 years. And it appears her supporters are still trying to figure it out as well since none of them can tell us what she has done specifically.
I do hear a lot about her wanting to be our “Champion” and how she wants to take care of all of us. The problem with taking care of us is that she and other Liberal Democrats trounce on the Constitution. But, the thrashing of the Constitution is not limited to Democrats. Republicans have done it as well. In fact some Republicans that have run for President have written and helped pass laws that limit our freedom of speech. You remember the McCain-Fiengold elections law don’t you? The big argument here is that money is not equal to free speech. The real reason for this law is to limit opposition close to an election. This is not the American way. Not by the standards of the Constitution. And we have Democrats running for President right now that think the Citizens United case was wrong and will do whatever it takes to get it reversed and limit the free speech of every American, not just the rich.
Let me be very clear, I do not believe most politicians in either major party have our best interests in mind. Oh they may say they do, but it is all too clear that their actions say otherwise. After all, how can you say you are for freedom and choice when you allow and even protect, in some cases, a law that takes away a major choice for all Americans? Obamacare is not greater choice and freedom. It is far less. How can they claim they are for greater freedom when they make laws that limit choice, attack the very freedoms that are written within the Constitution and tell us it is for our own good and safety? Seriously, do you honestly believe that limiting your freedoms is better for you and your family and your business? Well, of course not. In fact, we have more laws on our books today than ever before. We have laws that contradict some other laws. We have laws that are so confusing that it is nearly impossible for prosecutors and judges to adjudicate them. We have laws that fly directly in the face of the Constitution limiting the everyday freedoms of the average American.
Let’s face it, we have been the frog in the pot for far too long. It is time we jump out of that pot and reclaim what is rightfully ours. The Constitution guarantees us our freedom. The courts are supposed to make sure of this and the executive branch is supposed to make sure those rights are safe. Let me be clear, I love the United States of America. No, it’s not a perfect country. No, it does not have a perfect and innocent history. However, after living in or visiting other nations, I can honestly tell you, there is no other place as nice or as free.
But it seems Americans are eager to elect those who are more than happy to strip those rights from us. This I just do not understand. I would fight and die willingly to protect and preserve what our Founding Fathers fought so hard to give me and my heirs. I will support anyone who will truly support the Constitution of the United States. I will fight to defend the rights of all of those who disagree with me for the reason that differences of opinion have helped make our nation so great. But what I cannot stand by and let happen is a bunch of politicians stomp on the graves of our Founding Fathers and strip the Constitution bare. Oh, the carnivores are feasting on the American people’s rights and the American people seem to keep serving them up with beer to wash it all down.
But that is not America. That is not American. This Constitution loving American wont serve up his rights. You should not do so either. You should, in fact, demand that the rights you have lost be returned. You can demand this by voting for those who stand up for the Constitution and for Americans. Just think about what I have said. Take an hour or so and read the Constitution. It is YOUR Constitution. It belongs to all of us not just a few and you should know what you are giving up when you vote for those who say they want to help or want to take care of you. In the end, they only help and take care of themselves and they do so at your expense.
When you vote, and obviously you should not vote for a liberal Democrat, vote for the Constitution of the United States of America. The Constitution, just like the colors that represent this great land, does not run. Never, never, never let your colors run. My colors do not run. Never have. Never will.
