The Oath

It’s a wonder we even take seriously anything that comes out of our elected officials’ mouths with all the lies and deceit that permeate their speech. Regardless, I wanted to make aware of certain oaths that are taken – oaths that used to mean something:

Presidential Oath of Office:

“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.”

If we had anyone with some guts in our government, an irrefutable case could be made that our Constitution is being trampled and circumvented. Obama has stated he believes the Constitution is flawed because it is a document of ‘negative liberties’. He has stated and continues to believe as proved by his actions that we should be governed by a system of ‘positive liberties’. Positive liberties means the government does things for you. To accomplish this, we must relinquish freedom. To give something to one necessitates the taking from another. How is this freedom or liberty? It is not. It is servitude.

And “redistributive change”? That’s not even code for socialism. That IS socialism!

How about this oath taken by the armed forces of the US:

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same:…”

We’ve been heading down the road of socialism for the last 100 years. The enemy is within the gates. Their means are many but their motivation united: control and power.

Pick a side.
