Twisted Distortions Of The Truth
The lack of comfort shown by both men, despite the considerable time they spent training in the law, underscores a deeply held misgiving and lack of trust they hold toward the core principles in the nations founding. If we are to listen to Bill Clinton and Barrack Obama, we must elevate these men as not only our betters, but the betters of the men that founded this country.
Can we in good faith do that? Can we disregard the insight, wisdom and commitment to freedom and personal liberty held by such men as Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, James Madison, Benjamin Franklin and George Washington? Could it be that a man commonly referred to as ‘slick willy’, who lied before Congress and a Grand Jury, who was disbarred from the practice of law for the disrespect he demonstrated for the law, should be held up as a wiser man and a man of better character and understanding then the founders of the great nation that we all live in today? And do we really believe that the disdain that Barrack Obama holds for those in this nation that disagree with him elevate Barrack to a more lofty position than our first president, who lead this nations fighting men for seven years, weathering great deprivation, hardship and doubt?
We are a nation founded under the idea that the people should be free, and with the understanding that the greatest threat to that freedom is the nation’s own government.
Indeed. The Founding Fathers wrote and spoke time and time again during the debates in The Constitutional Convention and in the ratification battles of the need to ensure that the sovereign people were sufficiently protected against the government. In fact, The Constitution would have never been ratified if men like James Madison had not promised to immediately pass the Amendments known as The Bill Of Rights in the first session of the Congress. In those ten amendments, negatives are put in place in order to protect the citizens and the states from the inevitably power-hungry hands of the national government.
Both Bill Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama are from a different school of thought — one that is the total opposite of the Founders [and, therefore, by definition, Anti-American (take that Billy Boy!)]. Here is a great example of the way these two think from Clinton’s recent op-ed in The New York Times:
Criticism is part of the lifeblood of democracy. No one is right all the time. But we should remember that there is a big difference between criticizing a policy or a politician and demonizing the government that guarantees our freedoms and the public servants who enforce our laws.
This way of thinking elevates the government to a sacred, consecrated, and hallowed level and those who work for it to the level of temple priests. This is the exact opposite of what The Constitution and Declaration Of Independence advocate [emphasis mine]…
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.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness….
—Declaration Of Independence, paragraph 2
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
Don’t believe the twisted distortions of the truth being peddled by the desiccated and debauched libertine, the narcissistic spoiled man-child, and their followers. We, the people, are sacrosanct, not the government. The American government, any government at any level, deserves our respect only when it behaves and follows the rules we, the people, have laid down. When a government does not, it deserves any derision and demonizing it receives because it has become an instrument of evil.
