US Constitution

Is the Constitution just a Piece of Parchment as Obama Stated in his Farewell Speech?

Obama said during his “Farewell” speech, that “Our Constitution is a remarkable, beautiful gift. But it’s really just a piece of parchment. It has no power on its own. We the People give it power. We the People give it meaning with our participation, with the choices we make, with the alliances we forge, whether or not we stand up for our freedoms, whether or not we stand up and enforce the rule of law.”

Now, all of that sounds pretty. But, therein lies the problem with the Obama administration. Herein lies the problem with those who sit high and look down low at the rest of us (i.e., the Hollywood elites, the ruling party elites, the UN, the billionaire George Soros of the world, etc.). This is why Obama could come before the American people and say with such arrogance, “I have a phone and a pen.” Referencing his intent to bypass the Constitution, to bypass Congress and enact whatever laws his little heart desires. Why? Because if the Constitution is a living, breathing document then it can be changed to accommodate the person who’s holding the pen. Please note: Trump is about to hold that pen next. Is it okay for him to declare himself king and make it up as he goes?

Our Founding Father John Adams once wrote, “Our Constitution is made ONLY for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for the governing of any other kind.”

Meaning, our Constitution is only able to govern people who know the difference between Right and Wrong; Up from Down; Good from Bad; Left from Right; a boy from a girl. But, we’re now living in a society where you don’t even have to be Black to be Black anymore. Remember, Rachel Dolezal? Remember Melissa Harris-Perry asking the question, “Could she be Black?” NO! She can’t.

America is the greatest country that has ever existed. This is a FACT! Not an opinion. But, America is the greatest country that has ever existed because it was founded on the greatest political document ever written in the world – the U.S. Constitution.

America does not exist apart from the Constitution. So, you can’t have those in leadership trying to make it up as they go. It doesn’t work that way. If you undo the Constitution, you undo America. America does not exist apart from the Constitution. Many tyrants know this to be true. This is why would-be-tyrants pay protestors and collude with politicians and other would-be-tyrants to create chaos and disorder. The greatest way to undo America is to create a society of chaos and disorder. The Constitution is NOT capable, it’s wholly inadequate, to govern over beasts of burdens, to rule over unconscionable animals. Here’s a note to every freedom loving American. If you want to undo America, create a society where you can basically make up morality as you go. Everything is relative. Bad is good and good is bad.
