Obama win is Constitution's loss

On Sept. 12, 2001, President George W. Bush assured us: “We will not allow this enemy to win the war by changing our way of life or restricting our freedoms.”

The enemy has certainly tried, but it was President Bush, following the advice of Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld, who began the extensive attack on our individual liberties through the Patriot Act, which passed on Oct. 26, 2001.

Then, President Barack Obama went far beyond his predecessor’s administration to become the most destructive uprooter of our Constitution in our nation’s history.

Growing up as a student at Boston Latin School, one of whose alumni was Samuel Adams, a firebrand of our American Revolution, I read American history with excitement. I learned how we always overcame grimly looming threats to our self-governing republic to become a beacon to the world.

But never did I even imagine that an American president, without insuring due process in a court of law, would – as Obama does – use a kill list to target suspected terrorists for assassination. So far this list has also included three American citizens.

Obama has taken advantage of ever-advancing digital technology, using bottomless databases that keep track of those Americans he considers persons of subversive interest. During the presidential debates, did you hear anything about our vanishing privacy?

The secrecy with which Obama discards the Constitution to rule over us is evident in his dictatorial use of the “state secrets” privilege, which actually prevents judges from even hearing cases brought by citizens who claim their fundamental constitutional rights have been expunged by the president’s censors.

these very same sources when used by the private sector with proper licensure and regulatory overight can also be used against the very same forces that oppress you. I know this for a fact. There are patriots that keep politicians from overstepping boundaries and becoming tyrants that are woring behind the scenes. Many of the politicians have attempted to remove these tools from the hands of the private sector so they cannot be investigated because they think they are “above the law”. The next time you hear a lawmaker touting new privacy laws, consider who the benefactors will be, what the intended an untended consequences will be anspd what I’ve said here as well.

Obama win is constitution’s loss - YOU THINK?

The constitution was lost in 2008 when the constitutionally ineligible obama/soetoro was allowed to be a presidential contender and then allowed to occupy the position of the president illegally!!!!!

Everything done by the usurper is illegal!

All military orders from the illegal CIC are illegal.

Ignorant Americans (including GOP, the conservative ‘leaders’ who refuse to address this issue or outright forbid their followers to touch this isuue...) letting the usurper run for the presidency TWICE
IS THE MAJOR CAUSE OF THE SHREDDING OF THE US CONSTITUTION!
