Are these the “Changes” American really wants?

The man, Obama, swore an oath to preserve, protect,

and to defend our U.S. Constitution, not to destroy it!

Here is the oath of office for the President of the United States:

“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.”

Listen to some of Obama’s views on the Constitution, and ask yourself where does it say it is the job of any government official to redistribute wealth?

Obama discusses his views about redistribution of wealth

Below are some pictures that give a pretty dismal picture of what this current administration is doing to our country, and to our Constitution.

Question: where does it say anywhere in the Constitution that it is the government’s job, or even their prerogative to redistribute our wealth, and to thereby, supposedly, eliminate poverty; and bring about a more even and equitable economical climate?

This has never worked, folks, anywhere it has been tried before; and it is called Socialism!

This is what killed the former USSR, and it is why they still are struggling today, as the Soviet Union; they also have this form of government in Red China, and also in Cuba.

Is this the sort of “Change,” which Obama campaigned on, that most Americans were expecting; which he has been ramming down everyone’s throat?

Is this the American that most Americans want? I don’t think so.

The Preamble to the Declaration of Independence, I think says it pretty good:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

It was never in the minds of our founding fathers that it should be the place of government to guarantee our happiness!

There are three main documents where we can determine what the true purpose of the Federal Government is, according to our founding fathers:

The Declaration of Independence,

The Constitution of the United States and

The Bill of Rights

According to the original intent of the Founding Fathers, these three documents are the foundation of our Liberty and the Supreme Law of the Land!

What follows is a paraphrase of the platform of the Constitutional Party, which I think has some pretty good ideas:

  • The sole purpose of government, as stated in the Declaration of Independence, is to secure our unalienable rights given us by our Creator; and when Government grows beyond this scope, is when government is trying to take the place of God, in my view; and the result is the people are ultimately enslaved to its tyranny, and are bound by all sorts of laws and taxes.
  • It is the purpose of Government to insure an atmosphere where the individual is free to express his or her unalienable rights; that among these are the right to life, liberty, property and the pursuit of happiness.
  • The Federal Government is to protect and insure the right of the individual to own, use, exchange, control, protect, and freely dispose of property, as this is a natural, necessary and an inseparable extension of the individual’s unalienable rights.
  • The legitimate function of our Government is to secure these rights through the preservation of domestic tranquility, the maintenance of a strong national defense, and the promotion of equal justice for all.
  • History will prove one thing, and that is if left unchecked, to its own devices, as this administration is attempting to do, it is the nature of government to usurp the liberty of its citizens, and eventually become the chief violator of the people’s rights!
  • It is therefore necessary that the People bind the government with the chains of the Constitution and that they carefully divide and jealously limit government powers to those assigned by the consent of the governed.

As far as I can tell, from my view of history, we are today repeating the very same mistakes that pre-Nazi Germany made.

It is my concern that having been so blessed, as a nation, and having prospered so much, more so than any other country in history, that we have grown weak, as a people; and are today so accustom to these benefits and blessings of living in our country, after having now had at least two generations pass, since WWII, who actually known nothing else, no other lifestyle, that we are really ripe today for a fall.

We no longer honor the God of our forefathers, and nor do we follow his laws. We have long forgotten that it is God who is responsible for our many blessings.

We also no longer appreciate the cost of the freedoms that we enjoy; but rather it seems that most Americans feel that all of this is our lot, as Americans; and it is because of that fact that it doesn’t appear that our leadership, nor much of our citizenry are willing to do what is necessary to defend and secure our liberty; and it seems many people today are so willing to just give it all up by default.

We have grown so naive and weak, in my opinion, and we have lost the concept that was first spoken by Teddy Roosevelt, when he said Americans need to “Speak softly and carry a BIG stick!”

One thing is very sure, and that is there are people in this world today who really dislike us, even hate us; and they hate everything we stand for.

They are also jealous of what we have here, and they want to take our wealth and prosperity for themselves.

This concept of what a “BULLY” is, is very familiar to most, or at least it should be; that the ONLY thing a bully will respect is a stick that is bigger than their own!

Our fancy talk and diplomacy, by itself, will not cut it; and this is something our current leadership in Washington DC has long forgotten.

Our enemies haven’t forgotten it, however, and they are using our weaken moral condition, as a nation, to work against us, and to undermine the very liberties and freedoms that we fought two World Wars to defend.

The question is, do we have the wherewithal, and intestinal fortitude, to stand up and tough this out; which I don’t believe can happen, unless we have a Spiritual Awakening, among our populous and a massive grassroots turning within our country back to the God of the Bible, and of our forefathers.

The main problem with our country is NOT our leadership, for we elected them to office!

What we see happening today in Washington DC is only a reflection and a symptom of what our true problem is; and let us be very clear on this one thing, that our problem is here at the grassroots of American; within our cities and towns, and within our own families.

The further we go down this present road, for sure, unless we have a miracle and some serious changes, the weaker our country will become!

Pray, folks, that’s all I can say… let us all continue to watch and pray!!!

One thought on “Are these the “Changes” American really wants?”

  1. I receive the following email today, regarding this post and I’m going to give you all my reply:

    This leaves me pondering a question, Skip.
    Under what circumstances can a U.S. President be considered for impeachment?
    With trillions of new money being printed when we are so deeply in debt, I have wondered if anyone is considering this question in light of his oath.

    Here’s my answer:

    Hi Cheryl,

    To answer your question, first of all, I don’t know if you know this, or not, but unlike our military, there are absolutely no penalties whatsoever, nor are there any ramifications for a politician to break his oath of office… the whole ceremony is all a meaningless formality and it is all for show… and that is part of the problem.

    Lying in government is today considered standard operating procedure, and is business as usual, for many politicians today, and that is all but obvious.

    As happened with Bill Clinton, though they went through the impeachment proceedings, and though he was found and known to be guilty of lying under oath, the only thing that happened is that he got a mild rebuke. You and I would have been thrown into prison.

    To answer your question, first of all, all the excessive spending, that our government is doing (I believe anyway) is all a part of the strategy, to further weaken our economy, and to ultimately cause us to default. How else would the Bankers ever gain the leverage to cause us to capitulate, and to join their New World Order?

    The U.S Dollar is already worth less than 4 cents, on the dollar, in terms of our buying power, and that is pretty close to zero!!! So we don’t have very far to go.

    From the international Bankers point of view, who hold much of the notes on our over 12 Trillion Dollar national debt, they want us to default, because by doing so, it will cause us to be the first in a series of dominoes to fall, and then the plan is for us to join, along with the rest of the world, and accept this New World Order… that former President George H.W. Bush Sr. first talked about, back in 1991.

    I don’t know if you know this, but according to the The Grace Commission Report, which was commissioned by former President Ronald Reagan, back in 1984, the following information was made public:

    “100% of what is collected (in taxes, by the Internal Revenue) is absorbed solely by interest on the Federal Debt … and all individual income tax revenues are gone before one nickel is spent on the services taxpayers expect from government.”
    -Grace Commission report submitted to President Ronald Reagan – January 15, 1984

    Secondly, I don’t see our present lot of leaders, in Washington DC, in the Senate, nor in Congress, doing anything; and if we merely elect another Republican administration, then we will be right back on the same merry-go-round, that we have been on for the last 100 years, and there will be no real changes.

    The reason is because as it is, the whole system is corrupt, including both parties, as far as the leadership is concerned, in both the Republican and Democratic parties.

    Like Alan Keyes has said, they are but two sides of the same coin, when it comes to the Globalist agenda; and then on top of all of that, to make matters worse, our media is corrupt too, and all of this is owed to the powerful influence of these International Bankers.

    The ONLY thing that will have an impact on changing our nation around, in my opinion, is first we have a spiritual awakening and revival, at the grassroots level, here in America; and the people themselves rise up and take back our government.

    Without that happening… in my opinion again, the only way we can go from here, is down.
