Reading the ATW post on the Great One’s statue, I realised that I needed to go forth and gain education on the one thing which America holds dear, but seems to be in great danger of losing through neglect. That one item is a sheet of paper which has distilled the many traits, failings, glories and achievements of America into a single publication. It is of course the Constitution of the United States of America. Of the statements made, and Amendments written and agreed, there seems to be little argument as to the to items which are most important; important that is to people who claim or wish to live in freedom. The first is the absolute right of ‘free speech’ in America. for without debate, without concurrence and agreement, there can be no true consensus. If a position is taken by a Congress Representative, or Senator, everyone else is at liberty to state their views to their own locality, constituency and representative. Similarly, if a citizen debates a Law, or indeed the lack of a Law, he or she can speak, and write about that Law until either the Law is changed, or indeed struck down through the Federal or Supreme Courts. In recent years, the Feds, have acted against Arizona on immigration, and again in florida on voter registration, but this is all in accord with the Constitution.
So why is it that no-one, or indeed virtually no-one at all, has acted or spoken to demand that proof, absolute proof, be given and tested, that the present President of the United States is in fact legally entitled to hold his job down in the first place? As in “No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President.” Romney had the opportunity, and he fluffed it away in a sad little joke.
