In a few short days this country is going to elect a new president of the United States, and quite frankly I am terrified. I am one of those baby boomers that grew up being taught, both at home and at school, that this was the greatest country in the world. I grew up knowing that our forefathers had shaped two of the most enviable documents in the world — the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. I grew up believing that if I worked hard enough, that I would have the opportunity to do and be anything I wanted.
And now we learn that Barak Obama thinks these revered documents are flawed. According to recently “discovered” tapes made by Obama, the senator feels that the Constitution is a poorly written document that does not give the federal government enough power to change the lives of its citizens! He also feels that the Supreme Court has not only done a poor job of redistributing wealth, but that they have not advocated enough on behalf of its citizens. Call me silly, but I thought the court’s job was to interpret the law, not make it.So let me see, thanks to these very same “flawed” documents, Barack Hussein Obama, has enjoyed the opportunity to run for the highest office in the land, despite being the most inexperienced candidate ever to run for office. His background is murky, and yet he, having the good fortune to study constitutional law at one of the country’s most elite institutions, has decided that the constitution -- OUR constitution -- is flawed!What I find truly amazing is that our supposed unbiased media, is mum. After all, isn’t the media the first one to assert the constitution’s first amendment rights whenever they want to tear into someone’s life, business or go after a government entity that they don’t agree with. Aren’t they even a little concerned about these new revelations and how Obama’s views might affect their future ability to do their jobs? Unfortunately, those of us who actually love our country’s history and try to follow what passes for news these days, have discovered that the media does not care. Why would they? They have been both cheerleader and active campaigner for this candidate. They are not about to ask questions that might make their candidate look bad. If any of you have any doubts about what this man’s agenda is going to be over the next four years, then you are naïve at best, or just plain stupid.If the media and Obama followers think that this man has the country’s best interests at heart, all you have to do is look at his campaign. There is an old saying – just follow the money. Obama has raised more than a half a BILLION dollars to fund one of the sleeziest campaigns in political history. He has aligned himself with the community organization known as ACORN that is currently either being investigated, or has already been indicted for voter fraud in more than 15 states. We are also hearing that as much as $60 million dollars of his campaign money has come from suspicious sources, including foreign entities. He has enjoyed close relationships with very extreme radicals such as Jeremiah Wright, Father Flagler, Bill Ayers and Saul Alinsky. All of these issues would be “red meat” to the media if Obama was a Republican, yet they are barely mentioned by his media chums.I would like to remind those in the press that you should be careful what you wish for. You will be one of the first to cry foul when you finally see that you are nothing more than a public relations hack for this man. You see, I think that you too will discover, like citizen Joe the Plummer discovered after asking Obama a simple, yet apparently embarrassing question, that if you happen to question or disagree with anything that the chosen One says or does, you too will be vilified.
And guess what, by then you probably won’t recognize that “weak” little constitution that so fervently protects your right of free speech. Don’t come crying to me. You will have no one to blame but yourselves!
