Though the Constitution was indeed written by patriots for the people, but I get what your saying on that. Many only read parts of the Constitution
and make up their own interpretation of it. The party system is a joke and people need to realize this. Republican, Democrat, whatever, it does not
matter. It divides the people into bitter arguements and fights. It's just like sport teams, yes there are different teams that play one another but
they are in the same league, many of them are pals and probably hung out in college. But it's the division of the fans that make things competitive
and often leads to violence. Just look at this thread alone, as well as other threads on this site. It's always Democrat vs Republican, Conservative
vs Liberal, and then there are the other parties and other categories that will take just too long to name all of them.
As for people who think Obama should be hung, removed, either by force or vote that's just something you hear about from those that do not like
who's in office. I remember a lot of people who didn't like Clinton wanted him shot dead. Many people wanted both Bush's dead. But would the
founding fathers frown upon the citizens looking to forcefully remove a corrupt sitting president? You betcha. They themselves did it, of course it
was a different kind of leadership they were facing but you know what I mean, why would they be against it? If a sitting president is going against
the very foundations that they built this country on, then they would probably be the ones to do it themselves. It is patriotic for the citizens of
this country to protect it's liberty and freedom from corrupt rulers. This is what people are mad about.
People are getting tired from the same old politics over and over again. The rich are getting richer, those in power are getting more powerful, and
the people are getting the smelly side of the stick from it. Even though I truely believe that Obama was something planned by the powers that be
(because be honest, the president is just a puppet/scapegoat) I think that the people who went out and voted for him, believed his campaign promises,
really thought he would be something new. They were fooled and now they realize that he is just part of the crowd, the same old, same old. I guess you
could call this election fair, seeing as it was obviously designed for Obama to win. Ever since he became Senator of Illinois, I kept my eye on this
guy because that is where the media began to build him as our "messiah". The road was paved for him, and look at his opposition. John McCain
launched a very weak campaign against him, in fact, it seemed to as though he didn't even try, and he probably didn't.
When you bring up Obama's birth certificate, yes it is about us. He is a public servant and people demand a straight answer. What people are asking
for is not a difficult thing, so why the fuss over it? That is why people are obsessed with this particular topic. Any one else can just produce a
birth certificate without making a fuss about it. But since it's about Obama, it must be racist to bring up such a thing, correct? My personal
opinion of it, I don't really care, they are probably going to create an Amendment allowing foreign born citizens to hold the executive office
anyway. But the main reason I don't care, because I don't think that's the most important issue. I'm more concerned with our rights being violated
and sacrificed for security, and to satisfy the special interest groups that could care less about the regular citizens.
Also, where were you in the past 8 years? Are you kidding me? Who kept their mouth shut about Bush part two? Bush got insulted a lot more than Barry
did, in fact where were the "patriots" then? Why is it that when people disagree, criticize, mock Obama that is becomes racist and Un-American? This
crap was going on during the campaigns, if you didn't vote Obama, nor support him then you are a racist and the blacks will riot! That kind of tactic
sounds familiar. Yes, that may not have been said by Obama himself, but those messages were out there. There's no denying that one. Either you jumped
on the Obama bandwagon, or you are a terrorist, racist, bigot, Un-American. That doesn't sound too American or patriotic to me. But then again people
are for a ruler with absolute power, must be the submissiveness tendencies of the citizens within this country.
I for one, haven't liked one president this country has had while I have been alive. After studying about each president, I realize that we haven't
had a good one for a long time. In my personal opinion, I think Theodore Roosevelt was the last good president we had, but then again that's probably
just biasness on my part because I have similar interests he had, and not to mention what an interesting character he was. I think the whole system
has been corrupted and the people are feeling the effects of it. It has gotten old and people want real change. Do I think there should be an open,
bloody rebellion? No way, because It will not accomplish anything. We'll just rebuild what we already have, the revolutionaries will become the
corrupt leaders they fought against. I feel instead of cowardly starting over, that the mess that exists be fixed. Problem is, is that it's more
difficult to do that.
