I have not heard the audio yet, but let’s give it a shot. For some time, I have been telling people that Obama and his lefties believe that the Constitution was written by rich white guys who owned slaves and no longer applies in modern society. It is a living, breathing document. The judges he appoints are going to tell us what it means, which is simply what they want it to mean.
Actually, constitutional amendments have to be ratified by 3/4 of the states (it’s in Congress that a 2/3 vote in required from each house).
I see that this has been edited into a summary video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iivL4c_3pck
If Sarah was out saying this stuff, the Left might actually like her.
I can see Obama using his own lack of an original birth certificate as a test case.
I'm totally going to believe you - cuz I can't remember the last time I had to know that (and I obviously didn't memorize it very well).
But what if we want to ‘send the Republicans a message’ by voting for an unheard of, unknown third party candidate who doesn’t have a snowballs chance in hell of winning. I would rather this country turn marxist communist with obama and a democrat supermajority in Congress led by Pelosi and Reid than to suck it up and cast a vote to prevent that. Doing anything else would go against my precious, precious principles which are more important than trivial matters like the irreversible turn towards fascism an obama/dem victory would bring to this country. No, I will vote third party (or possibly write-in my vote) to prove that there are those of us who love this country so much that we are willing to allow its destruction at the hands of an avowed marxist.
That’s exactly what I’m trying to drive home to the doubters. This is a dangerous game being played.
“If Sarah was out saying this stuff, the Left might actually like her.”
Only if she effectually stammered while pontificating...
I’m sorry, I didn’t listen, only read the text and thought it was one in the same. Now that I see both, they are very close: Obama doesn’t believe in the inherent integrity of the Constitution. He’s a flaming Marxist!
I don’t actually mind someone saying they think the Constitution is flawed. What troubles me is when they decide that they can therefore just ignore or reinterpret the parts they don’t like, rather than amending it. We’ve been learning for centuries that governments must be constrained by inviolable, written laws - and many modern liberals would just throw that principle aside in favor of the belief that if they just elect the right leaders, all will be well.
The picture that came to mind when I read this was of ACORN demonstrating inside banks demanding more affordable mortgages for minorities. A real Rev. Jesse type shakedown.
Obama is the new Hitler:
National Socialist Germany is generally held to be the first social welfare state. Changed attitudes in reaction to the Great Depression were instrumental in the move to the welfare state in many countries, a harbinger of new times where “cradle-to-grave” services became a reality after the poverty of the Depression. During the Great Depression, it was seen as an alternative “middle way” between communism and capitalism. In the period following the Second World War, many countries in Europe moved from partial or selective provision of social services to relatively comprehensive coverage of the population.
Yeah free money!!!!
It is not the same audio, listen @ link I posted.
your link is about redistribution of wealth, this link is that constitution is flawed.
FORBES.com: "OBAMA AND AHMADINEJAD" -Commentary by Amir Taheri (ARTICLE SNIPPET: "According to the tradition, Imam Ali Ibn Abi-Talib (the prophet's cousin and son-in-law) prophesied that at the End of Times and just before the return of the Mahdi, the Ultimate Saviour, a "tall black man will assume the reins of government in the West." Commanding "the strongest army on earth," the new ruler in the West will carry "a clear sign" from the third imam, whose name was Hussein Ibn Ali. The tradition concludes: "Shiites should have no doubt that he is with us." In a curious coincidence Obama's first and second names--Barack Hussein--mean "the blessing of Hussein" in Arabic and Persian. His family name, Obama, written in the Persian alphabet, reads O Ba Ma, which means "he is with us," the magic formula in Majlisi's tradition. Mystical reasons aside, the Khomeinist establishment sees Obama's rise as another sign of the West's decline and the triumph of Islam.") (October 26, 2008)
I cannot believe this man!!! GRRRRRRRR!
