(PRESIDENTIAL OATH: 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)
“The Constitution is just a piece of paper”- G.W. Bush??
If you do not believe Jonathan Turley, who is a constitutional law expert, check this too…
George Washington’s Farewell 1796.
The Rule of Law is the foundation for constitutional government and a flourishing civil society.
No president of Congress has the right to overwrite the American Constitution.
|“Observe good faith and justice towards all nations; cultivate peace and harmony with all. Religion and morality enjoin this conduct; and can it be, that good policy does not equally enjoin it It will be worthy of a free, enlightened, and at no distant period, a great nation, to give to mankind the magnanimous and too novel example of a people always guided by an exalted justice and benevolence. Who can doubt that, in the course of time and things, the fruits of such a plan would richly repay any temporary advantages which might be lost by a steady adherence to it? Can it be that Providence has not connected the permanent felicity of a nation with its virtue? The experiment, at least, is recommended by every sentiment which ennobles human nature. Alas! is it rendered impossible by its vices?” ~ George Washington’s Farewell 1796|
|“Ah, this is the constitution,” he said. “Now, mark my words. So long as we are a young and virtuous people, this instument will bind us together in mutual interests, mutual welfare, and mutual happiness. But when we become old and corrupt, it will bind no longer.” ~Alexander Hamilton|
|“The Framers [of the Constitution] knew that free speech is the friend of change and revolution. But they also knew that it is always the deadliest enemy of tyranny.” ~Hugo Black|
|“If once the people become inattentive to the public affairs, you and I, and Congress and Assemblies, Judges and Governors, shall all become wolves. It seems to be the law of our general nature, in spite of individual exceptions.” ~Thomas Jefferson|
|As Edmund Burke, the ‘Father of Conservative Thought’ pointed out in 1799:|
In all bodies, those who will lead must also, in a considerable degree, follow. They must conform their propositions to the taste, talent, and disposition of those whom they wish to conduct; therefore, if an assembly is viciously or feebly composed in a very great part of it, nothing but such a supreme degree of virtue as very rarely appears in the world, and for that reason cannot enter calculation, will prevent the men of talent disseminated through it from beginning only the expert instruments of absurd projects! If, what is the more likely event, instead of that unusual degree of virtue, they should be actuated by sinister ambition and a lust of meretricious glory, then the feeble part of the assembly, to whom at first they conform, becomes in its turn the dupe and instrument of their designs. In this political traffic, the leaders will be obliged to bow to the ignorance of their followers, and the followers to become subservient to the worst designs of their leaders.~~EDMUND BURKE, REFLECTIONS ON THE REVOLUTION IN FRANCE, page 19
VIDEO AMERICA AT CROSSROAD: As Americans we have two choices: Do we continue to slide away from our nation’s founding principles or do we return to the kind of government we inherited? Can we keep our Republic, as Franklin asked, or will we inevitably end up with oligarchy and the tyranny of the elite?
“The inability of the colonists to get power to issue their own money permanently out of the hands of George III and the international bankers was the PRIME reason of the revolutionary war” ~ Benjamin Franklin
“All of the perplexities, confusion, and distress in America arises, not from the defects of the constitution or confederation, not from want of honor or virtue so much as from the downright ignorance of the nature of coin, credit and circulation” ~ John Adams
VIDEO THE MONEY MASTERS: How International Bankers gained all the control and what can we do about it. What is the most corrupt institution the world has ever known that has impoverished the people of the United States and practically bankrupted our government and what can we do to avoid the diminishing of the middle class.
“The money power preys upon the Nation at times of peace and conspires against it at times of adversity. It is more despotic than monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, more selfish than bureaucracy” ~ Abraham Lincoln
