The Soul Of Our Nation YES, IT'S DEAD IF YOU HAVEN'T NOTICED.
The US Constitution - Transmits Ideas Which Are The Soul Of Our Nation
Dear Mr. President, About The Constitution . . .
Stop throwing the Constitution in my face, Bush screamed back. Its just a goddamned piece of paper!
Let us start out with the fact that the Constitution is actually written on parchment, not paper. A trivial point, I grant you, but one that reveals (along with your inability to correctly pronounce the word "nuclear") a shocking lack of education in a head of state.
But to get to the point, the Constitution is not the parchment itself, but the ideas written upon it; ideas which form the foundations of our nation, ideas which would carry equal weight if written on stone, glass, metal, or even paper. These ideas are the soul of the nation. They include the recognition that the people of this nation have certain rights, TRY EXERCISING THOSE RIGHTS BY NOT PAYING TAXES AND SEE HOW FAR IT GETS YOU OR TRY CONVINCING A COP WHO PULLED YOU OVER THAT HE'S A PUBLIC SERVANT.rights which the government does not have the authority to remove. These rights include freedom of speech, to say what we think about the nation at any and all times, to write that opinion down and share it however we choose to. These rights include the freedom to worship as we choose, free from coercion. These rights include the right to privacy, in our homes and businesses, free from government intrusions other than in very specific and well-defined circumstances. HAVE YOU FORGOTTON THE PATRIOT ACT AND THE CREATION OF DEPT. OF HOMELAND SECURITY?
Maybe those rights are inconvenient to you, as such rights are always inconvenient to tyrants, but you are not allowed the choice which rights you will abide by or not. That too is spelled out explicitly in the Constitution. JUST ABOUT EVERY OTHER PRESIDENT HAS CONTRIBUTED TO THE EROSION OF FREEDOM, GWB AIN'T ALONE.
The Constitution isn't just a piece of paper or parchment. It's a contract; the original contract with America. It's the contract you yourself swore an oath to preserve, protect, and defend against all enemies both foreign and domesticWELL, HE OBVIOUSLY LIED AS EVERYONE ELSE HAS FOR AT LEAST THE LAST FIVE DECADES. You attached your name to that promise. You swore that oath before a judge of the United States Supreme Court, with your hand on a bibleYOU KNOW GWB AIN'T CHRISTIAN SO THAT'S NO BIG SUPRISE. That isn't just scenery for the cameras. Swearing an oath before a judge carries legal obligations with that oath, and legal penalties for breaking that oath.
The election process by which you claim authority is defined in that Constitution. And as you claim authority by Constitutional process, so too are you limited by Constitutional process. If you act outside the limits of the Constitution, you are no longer acting as the President, but as a private citizen abusing the powers with which you were trusted. A government that acts outside the Constitution ceases to be the legal government of this land. YOU'RE RIGHT, IT ISN'T THE LEGAL GOVERNMENT OF THIS LAND AS FAR AS THAT DOCUMENT IS CONCERNED. HASN'T BEEN FOR AWHILE.
The Constitution exists not only to tell the government what it may do, but more importantly what it may not do.THAT DOESN'T APPLY ANYMORE, REFER TO ABOVE STATEMENT. You, as the President, are not allowed to declare wars without the US Congress. You, the President, are not allowed to seize people at random and send them off to be tortured. And most of all, you, the President, and not allowed to lie to the people and to the Congress. BUT HE DID, AND HE'S STILL GETTING AWAY WITH IT ISN'T HE?
Every President before you, including your father, swore that oath to preserve, protect, and defend that ConstitutionBUT AGAIN, MOST IF NOT ALL OF THEM LIED. Millions of Americans died in wars in the firm belief that the form of government describes on that parchment was worth such a sacrifice.THEY DIED IN VAIN, THEY WEREN'T FIGHTING FOR FREEDOM, IN EVERY WAR SAVE THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR, THEY WERE FIGHTING FOR THE NWO PURPOSES OF ENSLAVING AMERICA To state that the Constitution is just a "dammed piece of paper" is a slap in the face of every American who ever donned the uniform of the military forces of this country.THEY NEED A SLAP IN THE FACE TO WAKE THEM UP FROM FIGHTING ANOTHER WAR FOR NWO LIKE IRAQ AND EVERYTHING ELSE MIDDLE EAST
Go over to Arlington National Cemetery. It's not that far from where you live. Look at those tombstones. By your statement, you have written across and every one the words, "Died for a goddamned piece of paper."ONCE AGAIN, THEY BELIEVE THEY FOUGHT AND DIED FOR FREEDOM, BUT THEY WERE REALLY ONLY HELPING BRING ABOUT MORE TYRANNY VIA PROBLEM/REACTION/SOLUTION.
Thank God for "Freedom Of Speech"...
So pardon me while I burst into flames.
I\'ve had enough of the world and it\'s people\'s mindless games.
So pardon me while I burn, and rise above the flame. Pardon me, pardon me, I\'ll never be the same. -Brandon Boyd
