I find it rather bothersom of the willful neglect of the constitution when it doesnt suit the arguments of some folks. Lets not the forget the
constitution was not written "by conservatives" for "conservatives". It was not written "patriots" for "patriots". The constitution was
written by the people for the people. The constitution represents all americans, in all ethnicities, religions and ideologies. There is gross
ignorance of the constitutional rights that apply to all americans among many on here. I tell ya, its rather interesting seeing a thread regarding how
Obama should be impeached because of this unauthenticated document or that he should be removed because of this policie or that the "american people
want him to leave" even though that really translates to "southern conservatives and disgruntled libertarians want him to".
Is this what you consider patriotic? Is what you consider following the will of the founding fathers? Overthrowing a fairly elected president
candidate on the basis of your own personal suspcions, theories, hatred? Where did this mentality come from? Does the consensus among those in this
forum, among the conservative populous dictate the entire path of the nation? I mean we certainly had conservative southerners in office for the past
28years so maybe folks forget as to whom and what these constitutional rights apply to. Maybe folks should start reminding themselves that those
constitutional rights are not exclusive to "certain kinds of americans".
You may not like Obama for all sorts of reasons but he was democratically elected as president on November 4th 2008. He was constitutionally confirmed
eligible in December of 2008 by both congress and the electoral college. Whether you choose to accept it or not he did sufficiently provide evidence
of his birth right for the presidency. This isnt about you, this isnt about your personal issues about the man, this is about the will of the
constitution, the will of those men who stood around that table in 1775 to form this great Union of ours, the will of the people who voted one
November 4th 2008. Maybe the founding fathers didnt anticipate future presidents and who they are, what they will be like, but they certainly
drafted the rights to be applied to all americans, of all colours, all creeds and yes even ideological beliefs. Obama was constitutionally elected
as president, and while the people of this nation have every right to remove a president on the basis of abuse of power, that requires for a
constitutional reference for any such removal to take place and recognition of the constitutional rights of that president and those who disagree.
Something people here willfully forget and shut out.
In addition to this, the mere fact you all kept your mouths shut over the last 8years only the speak up now clearly shows that this has nothing to do
with the constitution and everything to do with cultural shock and fear and to be frank, that isnt sufficient enough to remove him from office.
So, the next time anybody here goes on about how the president should be impeached, hanged, or whatever twisted reasoning you folks have, remember
that you dont speak for all who contribute to this country, you dont speak for the constitution, you dont dictate the path of this nation exclusively
and you dont draft the eligibility laws exclusively. This is a Union, shared by many peoples of many beliefs and many ideologies. Despite our
differences we all share rights from the constitution and we all contribute to moving the nation on path. So, please cut the "patriotic water the
liberty" garbage, because you dont own that right exclusively. You may not like where this nation is heading to, but thank the founding fathers you
dont constitutionally speak for the rest of the nation exclusively.
So the next time you post a thread or reply stating about how Obama and the government should be overthrown, but the constitution where your mouth is,
not where your personal suspicions and hatred lie.
