Midnight, I don't know where to begin!!!
I'll start, by going down the list YOU provided:
#1...You wrote 'Creator'...if you meant 'God', why didn't you say so??
#2...'Natural Laws'...well, if you wish to believe in the 'Creator' (God) then this is NOT a separate category...it ties back to (#1)
#3...the 'Constitution'...am assuming, of course, you refer to the American Constitution, or more correctly, the 'Constitution of the United States
of America', as originally written over 200 years ago?? Or, do you prefer the Amended version that exists today??? (Have ever READ either the
'Constitution', or even the 'Declaration of Independence'???)
#4...This is all I can remember, from your post (others may link back, of course)...but you mentioned the 'President'....ummmm, doesn't this
somehow tie-in to the American Constitution? I mean, wasn't this the BASIS for our system of democratic government, that our Founding Fathers wished
to see implemented? The 'President' at the top of one triangle....the "Executive Branch"....and below that person, the 'Legislative Branch".
THIS to, in theory, provide some sort of 'brakes' on the vehicle of POWER....but, in addition, a THIRD Branch was created, back in 1789....the
'Judicial Branch'...which we now call the 'Supreme Court'...and which has become too, too Political as to be a joke....or, in the allegory of the
Founders...a loose leg in the "Stool of Democracy" (OK, I MADE THAT PART UP!)
((See, I was using the three-legged stool as a comparison, which, I believe, was the intent of the Founders....))
The fact that our Constitution has been Amended so many times speaks to its viability, but also to its vulnerability....as been evidenced by the
latest Administration, soon to be gone.
Back on target: I do NOT think the Media has abandoned the USA.
I think that certain aspects of the 'media' have conspired to "preach" a certain agenda, that is counter-intuitive to what is actually based not
only in our 'Declaration of Independence' (y'all should read this, sometimes) but what is left of our 'Constitution' (read this too....and
compare to the "Magna Carta" of the 15th century, if you want to know a little historical perspective...)
When I write "...what is left of our Constitution..." I refer to what the George W. Bush admistration has tried to do to erode our rights, under the
Constitution, and its roughly 22 Amendments.
The Constitution was, arguably, a 'working document'....hence, it had the opportunity for amendments. THIS is why it's something to sink into, and
try to use, going forward.
Instead, the Bush/Cheny Admistration wished to UNDERMINE the Constitution, to further their careers.
