JOEL SWANSON: UPHOLD AND DEFEND

When he or she is sworn into office, every elected federal official in the United States, including the President raises his or her hand and swears to “uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America, so help me GOD?”

No one, not a one of them was elected to “fundamentally change” anything! While it is human nature, I guess, for us to think that we simply must be smarter than those old, silly-looking, Founding Fathers, who have been dead for 200 years; our history and our experiences tell us that is not the case. In fact, history tells us just the opposite. Every new generation of elected officials that we, the American people, send to Washington, DC, seems to be less intelligent and have less common sense than the generation before.  We, the people, have the power to change that; and change that we must!

And they all seem to have an agenda, don’t they?  One that they somehow forgot to tell us about during their campaign; an agenda to show us all just how much smarter they are than the rest of us, and of course, they simply must be much more intelligent than those old codgers who wrote and signed those magnificent documents that created the nation that is the United States of America.

If we truly do send them to Washington DC to “uphold and defend” the Constitution of the United States; then it is our responsibility, our duty, as Americans, to hold them to it!

There is not a man or woman in Washington DC, today; including Barack Obama, who can  hold a candle to even one of our founding fathers’ not Washington, nor Jefferson, nor Madison, nor Franklin, nor Paine, nor Henry, nor Hale, NOT A ONE!

We are told we have a Constitutional Law Professor in the White House; but so far, nothing has been shown to prove that. In fact; in his first 15 months in office, Obama has shown a total lack of understanding of our Constitution and a total disregard for everything it stands for.  Every true Constitutional Scholar will tell you the same thing; the Constitution of the United States does NOT, does NOT, give our elected federal government, the Executive and Legislative branches, the right to take over our healthcare system; not even a little bit. The lawsuits being filed against that takeover and its mandates, if they make it to the Supreme Court, WILL be ruled UN-constitutional. There is no doubt about it; and Obama’s blatant and very UN-presidential  attempt to intimidate members of the Supreme Court, in his very political, very partisan, State of the Union Address, will come back to bite him; and it should!

Albert Einstein told us that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results. The bureaucracy of our federal government, the elected, the appointed and the hired;  have broken, ruined, our Post Office, our Social Security, our Medicare, our Medicaid and Amtrac. In God’s name, what makes them think; what makes us think, that healthcare will be any different?

My friends it is our responsibility, our role, as Americans, as freedom-loving Americans; to make sure, to demand, that the ideals of our Constitution are honored; that the principles of our Constitution are upheld; that our freedoms, our rights, our nation, our future, are protected for always and forever. If not us, then who? If not now, then when!

God Bless the Constitution and the United States of America. I’m Joel Swanson, and that is my comment for today.
