I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States. –The Presidential Oath of OfficeBarack Hussein Obama cannot faithfully take the Presidential Oath of Office because all of his adult life he has been working to attack and destroy the Constitution and the very principles which are represented therein.
We have seen warning signs of this in Obama’s very brief national political career; his refusal to wear a flag pin and his refusal to put hand over heart in respect to America as the Star Spangled Banner is sung. (see videos)
Obama doesn’t honor America’s symbols
No flag pin
No flag salute
Both of these acts unwittingly expose a dark deep opposition to America and American values as these values are presently. Such sentiments lend themselves over quite easily to the themes of change. Change meaning that Barack Obama intends to change America into something that is was never intended to be.
This change is something that America has not seen ever before on American soil.
We get a very clear picture of this change in a recent discovered audio interview of Barack Obama on WBEZ, a Chicago public radio station. In that interview Obama is heard to say that in his opinion the Warren Supreme Court was not radical enough for his taste in that it did not break free from the Founding Fathers’ vision of America and the Constitution which they wrote. (see video)
And uh, to that extent, as radical as I think people tried to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn’t that radical.This admission is absolutely startling, and to think that an unvetted person as Barack Obama a person which the American people know very little to nothing about is days away from, if he is elected, taking an oath that he does not believe in and in all likelihood will not keep.
It didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution — at least as it’s been interpreted, and Warren Court interpreted it in the same way, that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties: [It] says what the states can’t do to you, says what the federal government can’t do to you, but it doesn’t say what the federal government or the state government must do on your behalf.
And that hasn’t shifted, and one of the, I think, the tragedies of the civil-rights movement was because the civil-rights movement became so court-focused, uh, I think that 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 coalitions of power through which you bring about redistributive change. And in some ways we still suffer from that.--Barack Obama (see story)
In Steven G. Calabresi’s Obama’s ‘Redistribution Constitution’ Mr. Calabresi makes this point:
This raises the question of whether Mr. Obama can in good faith take the presidential oath to "preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution" as he must do if he is to take office. Does Mr. Obama support the Constitution as it is written, or does he support amendments to guarantee welfare?
Is his provision of a "tax cut" to millions of Americans who currently pay no taxes merely a foreshadowing of constitutional rights to welfare, health care, Social Security, vacation time and the redistribution of wealth? Perhaps the candidate ought to be asked to answer these questions before the election rather than after.—Steven Calabresi (see story)
Sen. Obama has already stated that his choice of judges will not be based on whether or not his picks will uphold the rule of law and the Constitution his choices will be based on whether or not a judge will be biased in favor of special interest groups.
"[W]e need somebody who's got the heart, the empathy, to recognize what it's like to be a young teenage mom.That leads me to my final point. President Bush failed to fill vacancies and appoint judges to the lower federal courts. Democrat for eight years prevented those appointments.
The empathy to understand what it's like to be poor, or African-American, or gay, or disabled, or old. And that's the criteria by which I'm going to be selecting my judges."—Barack Obama
If Barack Obama is elected he will undoubtedly fill the two vacant seats of the most important lower federal court the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit and the seats of two older Clinton appointees who will retire, and most likely the seats of four older Reagan and George H.W. Bush appointees who may retire as well.
According to Calabresi, in addition Obama will shift the balance on 12 other federal appeals courts. Nine of the 13 will probably swing to the left if Mr. Obama is elected (not counting the Ninth Circuit, which the left solidly controls today).
Circuit majorities are likely at stake in this presidential election for the First, Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Seventh and Eleventh Circuit Courts of Appeal.
That includes the federal appeals courts for New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia and virtually every other major center of finance in the country.
On the Supreme Court, six of the current nine justices will be 70 years old or older on January 20, 2009. There is a widespread expectation that the next president could make four appointments in just his first term, with maybe two more in a second term. Here too we are poised for heavy change.
In essence we could see very systemic changes to the American society by law that 60’s radicals could have only dreamt of. This will be changing America not by blowing it up with William Ayers’ bombs but by imploding America onto itself and its Constitution by using the judiciary, executive and the legislative branches to break away from the essential constraints that were placed on us by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution.
That is the significant change of which Obama speaks about and if you were dull enough to missed the tell-tell signs of a flag pin not being worn or a missing hand over the heart in honor of America, if Obama is elected and when laws are enacted to subvert the very Constitution and the ideology of the Founding Fathers that gave America existence pray that it is not to late to do something to save America from the change that you’ve allowed to happen.
Because you have allowed an unknown political demagogue with a radical hidden agenda for changing America into his image of a socialist nation to forever destroy freedom in the benevolent name of redistributing wealth to the poor.
Pray that he who you held up as the Messiah is not that one who is supposed to came in the image of the Messiah offering world peace and prosperity but in reality he ushers in a new millennium like nothing that we’ve ever seen before or ever wish to see.
Or do the right thing and disregard Sen. Obama’s highfalutin rhetoric for change and ask Sen. Obama to first prove his citizenship by producing original birth certificate and unseal all college records so that we may see just who it is that is attempting to change America.
We can’t vote for Barack Obama if we don’t know if he is Constitutional qualified to be president. If he isn’t his election to the presidency would be a mockery of this very democracy and the sacred trust that each of us have been given to be ever vigilant and guard this democracy from those who would seek to destroy it but call their actions change.
These people most be resisted and turned back to the abyss from which they came. This is a huge task and Americans must do this in under a week.
So on November 4th 2008 vote to Stop the Mockery of our Democracy!
