I feel I should remind you that the people who started this country WERE committing treason against England.
"That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is in the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and to institute a
new Government, laying its Foundation on such Principles, and organizing its Powers in such Form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their
Safety and Happiness."
- The Constitution of the United States
Our current government is becoming destructive to the safety and happiness of the people. We have open borders..terrorists could just walk
across..hundreds of Mexicans do it every day, if terrorists are such a threat why aren't the borders more secure? My safety is at risk ..imagine all
the terrorists walking into this country. As for the happiness, the current government has racked up an insane national debt and prices for everything
are skyrocketing. Most people aren't happy not being able to afford to live.
Here is what I find funny. For the last 7 years Bush has completely undermined the constitution that he swore to protect.
"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."
- United States Oath of Office
5 years later:
"Stop throwing the Constitution in my face, It's just a goddamned piece of paper!"
- George W. Bush
If this is the kind of person who deserves respect.....then wow.
Maybe we could call Bush's last 7 years the ..."War on the Constitution" and since the Constitution is the basis and law of the United States...it
could also be called "The War on the United States"
Wait...thats in there too:
Section 3. Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and
comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court.
The constitution is the basis for everything in this country and trying to undermine our law system is criminal. I don't understand why some people
don't realize this.
Alot of peoples excuses for supporting the patriot act is "I like it because it makes me feel secure and we are more free because of it"
Well, another founding father has summed that one up:
"Those who are willing to sacrifice their basic liberties to assure their security deserve neither." - Benjamin Franklin
“Of all the enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the
parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes; and armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the
domination of the few.”
- James Madison
"If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy."
- James Madison
If we don't wake up, we are going to lose our country. It's not a liberal or conservative issue...it's an American one, and the
liberal/conservative debate is taking us further and further from any real action.
