WHAT CONSTITUTION?

November 7, 2012

I have repeatedly stated in speeches and on my radio show that many Americans are woefully unaware of what the Constitution says, and that means that if they don’t know how our government works and what rights they have then they won’t recognize what they are losing until it is too late. Unfortunately, yesterday’s election proved me right.

          It appears that a majority of Americans voted to allow Obama and the left wing elitists to continue with their program to destroy our Constitution, our freedoms, our country, and our way of life. I use the word appears since evidence is mounting that there was massive voter fraud around the country and we may never know how many people actually voted for Obama.

          However, it is clear that millions of Americans did cast their votes for the “Dictator in Chief.” Some of them knew exactly what they were doing because they are committed leftists who have long hated their own country and want to see it destroyed, and want to turn us all into subjects instead to free citizens. On the other hand, the vast majority of those who voted for Obama were just clueless as to what they were doing to themselves and our nation.

          I have been disturbed throughout the campaign that no one seemed to be talking about the Constitution and what Obama was doing to it. In previous articles on this blog I have detailed what I consider impeachable offenses committed by Obama and his appointees as well as members of Congress. They all took an oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, yet they have repeatedly and openly violated that oath.

          Why was this not a major campaign issue? Obama has ignored the balance of powers provisions of the Constitution. He has bypassed Congress and violated Article 2 of the Constitution by not only refusing to enforce laws adopted by Congress, but by making laws on his own by Executive order and agency actions. He has ignored Federal Court decisions, and carried out an unrelenting assault on the basic freedoms of the American people protected by the Bill of Rights. Yet, he has basically been given a free pass by Republicans with only a handful of members of Congress calling him to account for these criminal actions.

          As a result, many people voted for America’s first dictator, and why not? They have not been taught about the Constitution in school, and have probably never read it, and if they did may not have understood it. Its importance is no longer stressed, and besides, for many voters the Constitution is certainly not as important as the “free stuff” Obama promised them in order to get their votes.

          As for those of us that are aware of the disaster of this election and the horrors that will be heaped upon us by this administration, we cannot give up the fight. The phone calls and emails I have been getting today are mainly from people who are depressed and scared, and don’t believe there is anything that they can do. I disagree, we can educate and resist.

          Education is crucial because as even more bad things begin to happen under the Obama regime, people need to know that these are direct violations of our Constitution. For example, political correctness will get worse and will be further used to stifle freedom of speech and freedom of religion.  

          People also need to understand that they are not going to know about betrayal and corruption in our government if they rely on the mainstream news media for information. The major networks like NBC, ABC, CBS, and CNN are totally controlled by the President and will only provide propaganda favorable to the administration. If people want the truth, they will need to read conservative blogs and listen to conservative talk radio shows. Fox News is also usually reliable when it comes to reporting the truth.

          In the long term we must take back our universities and schools from the liberals that use them as political indoctrination centers instead of sources of education. Our children and grandchildren must be taught about the Constitution and free enterprise system.

          By resistance I mean that it is time for the states to stand up for the 10th Amendment and say no to illegal federal mandates that will damage or destroy the economies of the states, or limit the individual freedoms of their citizens. West Virginia for example is in danger of having its coal mining industry destroyed, not by a vote in Congress, but by unilateral and unconstitutional actions of the EPA. The state should invoke the 10th Amendment to the Constitution and refuse to comply with the EPA. Other states should take similar actions.

          Individuals must also be willing to defy the Federal government when their individual rights are threatened. That is where I can help. I have recently been appointed the Executive Director of the United States Justice Foundation. This is a legal foundation founded by a good friend, Gary Kreep, who has recently been elected a Judge in San Diego County. I will be taking over the position he is vacating. The USJF specializes in defending the Constitution and we represent people on court at no charge who have their rights threatened, and we also get involved in other major Constitutional litigation.

          I will also continue to write this blog and do my radio show on the Constitution. It is now more imperative than ever that we take a unified stand to save our country. As I write this article, I am listening to Amazing Grace being played on the bagpipes. It is a sacred hymn that I have most often heard played at the funerals of our military heroes. They have sacrificed themselves for our freedom and we must be prepared to do what is necessary to defend what they gave their lives for.

          From now on when Obama by words or actions says “What Constitution?” our response should be “Our Constitution!” No retreat and No surrender! From now on we take the fight to them on every level, and it will take place on our terms and on our ground. Let the battle begin!

I'll be your Huckleberry! I want to stand up and fight for our rights.
Thank you for continuing to educate those that do not understand. I wish you success in your position as the Executive Director of the United States Justice Foundation. May the Lord light your path. As always, I look forward to your writings, gail

Great article, Michael. You are right about the scarcity of constitutional literacy, and even worse, that folks just don't care. We make this a regular topic in my family, though, and are grateful for our God given rights.

Mike, I have appreciated your writings and your insight reguarding the Dictator in Chief. I had my own converstion with one of the clueless Obama supporters out there. I tried not to be upset with her because she admitted "not knowing the issues" but voted for Obama anyhow. Her reasons were these two statements, one she "never votes for a republican" and two Romney was going to take away her husbands firefighter pension. Now mind you we are in Northeast Ohio and we had the whole Senate Bill 5 here with Gov. Kasich. I don't believe the president has any authority over city employee pensions, and I never saw Romney addressing that issue. It appears we have a lot of voters who were scared of the "boogeyman" Romney and not enough paying attention to the evils of Obama.

Mike: I admit that I have not yet read any of your books on the Constitution. However, from many of your comments I doubt if you took the time to explain that when originally written, the constitution did not (and in many cases still does not) include the many minorities that actually built this great country. In case you were not aware, Blacks, Irish, Germans, Hispanics and Native Americans were NOT considered "Americans" and could not claim the rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Funny that these facts always seem to get left out of such "enlightning" articles.

Michael, that is an excellent article, at least the small part of it that I read~~~~getting a little sleepy and eyes crossing, LOL! What is your feeling about secession? I know that Texas retained the right to become a Republic again, before it agreed to join the United States. I, too, am so tired of our Constitution being trampled upon. And, I'm sick of the POTUS writing all these Executive Orders, therefore bypassing Congress, to accomplish his purposes. Thank you so much for what you do, and may God continue to bless you for your faithfulness to get the truth out about things going on. Glad to find out about UPS. I'll certainly never use them again.
