The U.S Constitution by Balddog4 The U.S Constitution by Balddog4
What more can I say, except that our Fore-Fathers will be disgusted with the way our Country is right now. I wouldn't be suprise if they are rolling in their graves sick with the way we treat our Constitution. The U.S Constitution is a foundation that our Country is set apon. Something that they risked their lives for. They knew what the Deculation of Independance and Constitution would do for the world, and what it would do for the people. We don't know what it was like living under another country's rule, but I do know that it wasn't something the People of the United States or the Colonies wanted to live. If we understand the Constitution, we'll learn what our Fore-Fathers sought for.

Our "Fore-Fathers" had differing opinions on government and society. One thing to consider from even the act of the constitution is that it was an incredible act of compromise. The "Fore-Fathers" (a term I personally hate for it's ability to wrap all involved together) would not agree with me or you or the other in many of our personal beliefs.

Let's say for instance, remember the Boston Marathon bombing and the New Orleans, well, they had federalized police barge in and take the guns from civilians (Including the rich ones) which I believe Obama had something to do with it. Now he's trying to federalize as muh states as he can so it can repeat. You should look it up on Infowars and the young trunks.

I never meant to say that these other rich residents who had their guns taken by federalized police were worse than middle classes. Both situations were bad. Those rich residents in New Orleans were mainly former/retired vets from that gun grabbing video I found from infowars YT channel. It's just as equally bad as the middle class people from there having their guns taken. It's also happening in Texas and and anywhere near it. Not all rich people are bad you know, not like those who work in the gov. who believe the same ordeals as Obama.

What do you mean "believe the same ordeals"? And I have to say that it seems to me that the majority of wealthy persons has the most interest in their own benefit.

I don't believe that giving the rich more money (i.e., cutting their taxes) benefits the less fortunate.

World should give thanks for America [link], Mark Steyn, November 17, 2007. Notes how Europeans think their culture is "older" than America's. "But Americans aren't novelty junkies on the important things. The New World is one of the oldest settled constitutional democracies on Earth, to a degree the Old World can barely comprehend. ... We know Eastern Europe was a totalitarian prison until the Nineties, but we forget that Mediterranean Europe (Greece, Spain, Portugal) has democratic roots going all the way back until, oh, the mid-Seventies; France and Germany's constitutions date back barely half a century, Italy's only to the 1940s, ... The U.S. Constitution is not only older than France's, Germany's, Italy's or Spain's constitution, it's older than all of them put together. Americans think of Europe as Goethe and Mozart and 12th century castles and 6th century churches, but the Continent's governing mechanisms are no more ancient than the Partridge Family. Aside from the Anglophone democracies, most of the nation-states in the West have been conspicuous failures at sustaining peaceful political evolution from one generation to the next, which is why they're so susceptible to the siren song of Big Ideas - Communism, Fascism, European Union."

Yes, and absolutely nothing had changed since the Constitution was written. The text laid down is clearly infaliable. When will those uppity feminists asking for "woman's sufferage" or those scatterbrained "Abolitionists" wanting to end slavery realize that the constitution is unquestionable divine writ that has endured completely unchanged since it was first written down?

So true, I mean people talk about a "living" Constitution, and that's a pile of crap. The Constitution is fairly vague and gives some leeway for decisions made in the future. Ultimately it safeguards the liberty of the individuals comprising this nation on a basic level. I'm disheartened that Obama and Bush can't even abide by the few restrictions set in place by this essential document. Power is always to be corrupted I suppose.

THe thing about Bush is that he allowed people who were in the Clinton and Algore aminiseration, (can't spell,) to dictate what he should and shouldn't do. That's the thing. If Bush had surround himself with people who would have follow his decisions, then there wouldn't have been any problems with Bush presidentcy. I know for a fact that Bush Loved America and the Constitution, but he srrrounded himself with people who didn't. That was his flaw. Obama however is a different story. He flat out hate America with his America hating wife, period.

Wut?
Clinton was at least a tad decent, he posted budget surpluses instead of deficits and wasn't hung up on Keynesian economics like Bush and Obama are/were. Bush was selected to be king because of his daddy. If he was so great why did he drag us into two wars and sign the Patriot Act in addition to creating the Department of Homeland Security, the TSA, expanding the drug war, enforcing anti-obscenity legislation,trying to pass DOMA and giving the NSA to free reign over American liberties? Honestly you don't need to have a 2.1 GPA at Yale to know that the Patriot Act would gravely oppress Americans on top of just about everything else he did. I know high schoolers who could have told me more about the Constitution than that Neo-Con.
I don't think either Obama or Bush "hate" America. They don't sit in the Oval Office and cackle maniacally every time a new law is passed against our civil liberties. They are just people who have been blinded by power without respecting the domestic rights of the people they represent.

Bush never hated America like Clinton, however like Clinton he, like I said, surrounded him self with people who didn't want him to make his own desisions. Most of the things that were placed by Bush, were done so because of the people he had with him in his office. With Obama, it's completly different. He hate's what America stands for and he hates the freedom that we have as Americans. He flat out hate America. He might not be saying it, but his actions does. And Actions speak mighter than words.

I don't believe Bush had any holdovers from the Clinton Administration on his cabinet. At least not the stellar choices of Ashcroft, Rummy, Powell et. al. although you can correct me if I was wrong, but he dredged up a good number of them from the Neo-Cons of the 1980's.[link]

But what evidence is there that Obama hates America? Frankly, if it's any solace I hate America myself. I think it's a cesspool of a rotten, warmongering, police state ever since 9/11 was used as a political football to expand government authority

The past administrations of Bush and Obama prove that both parties don’t care about our Constitutional rights—even if one of the politicians is a “Harvard Law graduate”! We live under the illusion of choice where we’re given two similar candidates and told they’re on opposite fringe ends of the spectrum. End the two-party farce! Vote third party!

Well, I find the Libertarian party to be more consitent with limited government and Constitutional rights than the current Republican party. Most liberals would find the Green Party to be more consistent with their values than the Democrats. There's also the Constitution Party, but I know little about that.

Well, the Obamacare for one was something that the Government was trying to shove down our throats. Another had to do with seperate Church and State. They tried to pass a law to see if they can have the power over all of the churches in America. But that got blown off, because they were seeing how far they can go in trying to controll our lives. That and Obama said that he supports the Occupied Wall Street movement. I mean any sane president wouldn't say that they support a movement like that. They would be trying to stop it. Then again Obama is just as insane as those jobless lazy people in the movement.

Obamacare: I didn't pay that much attention to is, but I live because of the Oregon Health Plan. But I have a friend who has quiet a few problems that her mom won't tell the doctor about so they don't lose their Health care.

Can you cite which bill was trying to control the Churches?

I will say I'm a proud Occupier. I think any sane president SHOULD back up a movement, maybe not completely but they shouldn't try and stop them. Why? Because it's because of movements like this that, America is free from Great Britain, Women can vote and choose their own lives, Because of the Civil Rights movement African-America like my birth-father are no longer "Second Class Citizens" and treated like dirt just because the color of their skin. Occupy may have not changed anything yet but it is a step. If the government was trying to stop a movement like this America would be the same as Burma, Communist Russia, Iran, North Korea, and Cuba. And before you say it disrupts the peace, the Suffragists movement disrupted the peace, and so did the Civil Rights movement. Nothing would change if they would have had sat quietly, they had to be heard.
