It’s clear where the long-term trends are pointing. Massive debt is a killer. Bloated entitlement spending is a killer. Populist regulation is a killer. And no amount of optimism can change this reality. The home of the brave and the land of the free is going the way of the Roman empire. Our great experiment in self government is at an end if The president has his way. He stated quite plainly that the constitution is inconvenient to his agenda and he plans to ignore it. He may have sworn an oath, but like so much of his presidency it means nothig to him that he committed perjury upon uttering these words: “
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.”
Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution requires that before presidents can assume their duties they must take the oath of office.
He has publicly stated in his inaugural address that he believes that ignoring the constitutional restraints on the federal government is now necessary. That we must give up our freedom for the common good.
Hmm Whose common good?
I took a similar oath that included the phrase -“… from all enemies, foreign and domestic…” when I joined the service and then served that oath when I went to fight to protect those freedoms. Guess What? I still keep that oath to this day. No one has released me from it.
How about you? Did you take that oath? Would you take that oath with every intentions of keeping it or dying? I and many other Americans did and continue to hold it sacred..
