Is the relinquishment of the trial by jury and the liberty of the press necessary for your liberty? Will the abandonment of your most sacred rights tend to the security of your liberty? Liberty, the greatest of all earthly blessings – give us that precious jewel, and you may take every thing else! Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect every one who approaches that jewel. Patrick Henry, speech to the Virginia Convention, Richmond, Virginia, June 5, 1788
The Preamble of the Constitution has nor force in law and serves as a reason the document was created, as well as reflecting the desires of the Framers that wished to make a more perfect document than the Articles of Confederation to be a benefit to the people instead of detriment.

Many promises have been broken since 2008 by BH Obama, but the most tragic is how he has not taken care of the victims who still suffer from the Fort Hood terrorist attack – and insults them by dubbing it a workplace violence incident, as if the US Army major was just a disturbed individual who got violent at the “workplace”. When he began to open fire upon people at Fort Hood he cried out in Arabic an Islamic jihad phrase and it has been conclusively shown that he had ties with terrorist organizations and members of such. In the following video, the CIA director has recognized it as an act of terror, but the President of the United States, commander-in-chief, has not. To make it worse, those people who survived are still suffering.
- Washington [Reuters/AP] …. President Obama fired IRS top official yesterday over improper targeting of conservative groups for special scrutiny during three congressional probes of the IRS in progress. Obama ordered Jack Lew, Treasury Secretary to demand the resignation of Stephen Miller, IRS commissioner. Obama was quoted saying:
I’ll do everything in my power to make sure nothing like this happens again by holding the responsible parties accountable, (and) by putting in place new checks and new safeguards. … Americans are right to be angry about it, and I am angry about it. I will not tolerate this kind of behavior in any agency, but especially in the IRS, given the power that it has and the reach that it has into all of our lives.
Scandals of the Obama administration is just piling up and it seems the mainstream media just does not care – and Obama has proven how far his corruption can go. If Congress does not do what he wants, use executive orders. If there are political enemies, in this case, the Tea Party movement organization, use the IRS, Gestapo of the US government, to punish them. Taxation in the Constitution, as well as discussion in the Federalist Papers and correspondence of Thomas Jefferson and other Founders clearly state that taxation is for funding government operation – NOT to punish a sector or individuals in society.
People’s Republic of China is hardly a republic, remaining communist despite the fall of the Soviet Union, which fell because of mostly economic infrastructure failure. China did not do so because the leadership craftily has not relied upon just military might but other tactics like destroying other economies, while building up their own as well as cyber warfare that includes stealing inventions and designs from other countries in order to quickly increase its power. The People’s Republic of China was established on October 1st, 1949, which was transformed from the Republic of China [January 1st 1912] and before that the Qing Dynasty, the first unification of China being in 221 BC under the Qin Dynasty.
China has a constitution, but nothing like what Americans know as a constitution that has been amended several times.
Barack Obama should have listened to his own advice given a while back …
The only people who don’t want to disclose the truth are the people with something to hide.
The latest excuse for lack of security requested is beyond imagination – budget cuts. It won’t work, the budget cuts took place AFTER the request. Since when does the Obama administration and his cronies in Congress worry about the budget. His promise of reducing debt and at the same time admonishing GW Bush for climbing national debt [which is true], he increased national debt more in four years than Bush did in eight. It is clear that both sides of the political aisle have spending problems – and continue to spend with either the idea they can spend their way out of debt or continue to increase the tax burden upon citizens in order to match their overspending. When they do cut, they cut the wrong programs and continue to funnel US taxpayer funds to foreign nations, people, and organizations. As if we do not have enough military bases around the world, the plan is that when troops are withdrawn from Afghanistan, four bases will remain occupied by US military personnel. The same administration that has been planning cuts of national defense. The national security of the United States is more important than protecting other nations who do not appreciate it.
