Well yeh..if you want. You could also apply the same to Bush and everything thats been done in the name of Homeland Security - so I take it you
aren't going to be voting Repub either for the same reasons?
You got that right: I only vote for those who will obey the Constitutional Oath of Office...If such a candidate in not available, I vote only for "No
The reason why I stopped at naming only a few examples is because you're right again
: The same point can
be made with Bush & the whole
Homeland Security mess, as well as making the same point with the other candidates & most of the Officers currently in Government. I have no desire to
turn a single post into a mere "list of examples" that could fill the Library of Congress...I've got more important things to do with my time than
to write it, and you have more important things to do with your time other than to read
However, if you were to look here
, you can see how Ron Paul stacks up his immpeccable record of defending the
Constitution as compared to the other candidates' proclivities to violate
it. I grant that the questions seem biased in favor of Ron Paul, to
make his comparison come out as all "yes," but with a bit of intelligent judgment, you can see beyond that bias: No matter which bias you may choose
to use on the questions
, the obvious conclusion is that (if the answers
are truthful to the way the question is asked
) Ron Paul
has always supported the Constitution & fights against everything that's not
Constitutional. So in accordance with the title of this thread &
the general theme of the OP, the vast majority of Government Officers & campaigning candidates (with the exception of Ron Paul) consider the
Constitution as something to "brush under the carpet."
The main point is that the more intelligent voters will be more likely to vote for the candidates that will support
the Constitution as the
Supreme Law of the Land, regardless of what MSM will tell us. MSM, whether intentionally or unknowingly, clouds the actual truth with nonsense: Too
many people are distracted away from the basic core truth that would allow us to understand what the government is really supposed to do
us: Instead, they encourage us to base our votes on "he's a nice guy" or "it's about time for a woman President." They even cloud the truth
further by using confusing political ideologies. IMHO, there's no room for "politics" in our Constitutional Republic...If Politics really is the
"Art of Compromise," you should realize that there's no room in the Constitution that allows itself to be "compromised" by politics! The
Constitution does allow for Natural Change (by the procedure of Amendments) when necessary but even then, the "spirit" of the Constitution & all
Civil Rights must be upheld.
In essence, the Constitution was "divinely inspired" (if you care to use that term) to be capable of governing a large population in accordance with
the Laws of Nature as set forth by the Creator...This is its primary goal. Basically, the Bill of Rights represents the same Rights that every
creature on this planet can exercise: For example, the 2nd Amendment provides for a means of defense against the extinction of life...The antelope has
speed as its defense against the claws of the lion, the turtle has its shell as defense, birds have their wings to fly away, etc. In turn, the Second
Amendment defines for us our
defense against violent people (& oppressive government!), because we don't have the lion's claws or the
antelope's speed, the turtle's shell...But we do
have our knowledge & intelligence to create artificial defenses (ie: guns) for our survival
against a quick & violent extinction.
The Bill of Rights describes what the Laws of Nature provide for us: The main body of the Constitution describes how the Government should govern the
People within the frame of our Rights, while it also defines the limitations
of Government so as to not violate those Rights. Therefore, when
Government Officers strictly adhere to the Constitution, the nation (as a whole) can live within the Laws of Nature & the government will support
those laws on a national level & arbitrate disputes between individuals...All within the order of Natural Law. But when the Government violates
the Natural Laws, only slavery & oppression (if not death & destruction) results. Yep, the Constitution is a work of sheer genius!

I can't agree with this overall concept...Why? Look at the way the Constitution was written. In the preamble, the most prominent words are "We
" This means that it's the People who establish government
...The People are the Boss, the Government is the employee &
the Constitution itself is the "contract of employment."
Some of the candidates are talking about "real leadership" as part of their platform...These people are the kind that must not occupy any Government
Office! The Government isn't supposed to be run by "leaders," it's supposed to be managed by "servants of the Public." The Government is not the
place for Leaders or Rulers, but the place for Civil Servants!
itself even includes a legally-binding Oath/Affirmation (Article 2, Section 1,
Clause 9 & Article 6, Clause 3) for all Officers of all three Branches at the State & Federal levels to uphold the "contract of employment." Every
violation of any/all terms within the Constitution (including Natural Laws that are derived from the Constitution) is a Breech of Oath to the
Constitution & the People that established it as the Supreme Law of the Land...If not treason, such violations are (at the very least) Felony
. Anyone who occupies any Government Office & who professes to support a "Democracy" is already in violation of their
...Check out Article 4, Section 4.
In effect, when Government Officers violate their Constitutional Oaths, the honor, integrity & obligation to live under Rule of Law of the entire
nation & all of its People
has been "swept under the carpet!"
