Something that has been bothering me

I have to blog about this because it is something that has been bothering me since it happened.

As we all know, January 20 2009 Barack Hussein Obama was sworn in as the 44th President of the United States. Well, something has bothered me about the ceremony since I watched it.

The third paragraph of Article VI of the United States Constitution says:

"The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States."

This portion of the Constitution has not been changed by any amendments.

So, the thing that bothers me is this; there was never any mention of support for the Constitution in his oath.

The king liberal has made it very clear that he believes that the Constitution is a good "jumping off point", but, we need to move forward and be more sympathetic towards the underprivileged.

This man has never intended on following the Constitution. He is remaking this country as we live and breath. He is preying on the fact that there is an economic recession to get passed his agenda that very well could bring this country to its knees. He is pushing the hate of rich people. These people should be the ones that we are trying to emulate. Not the ones we are punishing. These are the people that have worked and worked and made their way.

Now, this man comes in and wants to punish these people and give the money to those who do not push to be their best. "To the many according to their need from the few according to their ability." Karl Marx said this. It is exactly what Obama and the liberals are trying to put into effect. And they are winning ... for now.

We need to take this country back and break it down the very basics of what has made it great. We need to push back to a freedom of religion, not a freedom from religion. We need to look to the Constitution, not as a starting point to move forward, but, as the basis for moving the country forward. We need to look to capitalism as the vehicle to move our economy not as something to be feared.

I do agree with you. But not all of the rich people got that way because they worked for it. Some of them got it because mommy and daddy left it to them. But for those who have worked for it should be respected for what they have accomplished not punished. And those that don't want to work for what they have "should" stay at the bottom of the ladder. Too many people today don't want to work for what they want. They expect it to be handed to them and that's not right. We just need to get enough people together that want to fight for this country and not let our own supposied leader take over the country which is what he is doing.

There is something that you may not realize. I have looked at the profiles for the 20 richest people in the world from Forbes magazine. Now, if I remember correctly, I may be one or two off, but at least 15 of the 20 richest people in the world earned their money themselves. And, of the few that inherited some of their fortune, all of them are at least still working the company that they inherited. So, all of the top 20 are working for their living.
