I can whip Chuck Norris, Too

If I drank enough, I might get silly enough to mutter those words. It’s a good thing I don’t drink. One thing that I don’t want anyone to get away from understanding is that the President is just a human being. I mean how many times have we heard people speaking completely out of their ass. “I can whip your ass”, only to never have the guts to try. They never thought they could but they talked a great game. “I am going to tell my boss what an asshole he is”, only to never find the cajones to say a word. Well, President Obama is no different than everyone else. He can talk a great game too. Problem is…. Talk is cheap.

I have listened to all my liberal friends tell me that he is different. After all, “was I even listening to his speech the other night? He is going to cut the deficit in half in the next four years.” Followed by, “He is totally against wasteful spending and will root it out and eliminate it because government has to be smarter with our tax dollars.” Add in a healthy dose of, “He is going to clean up the White House by eliminating lobbyists from positions there because he is going to have an ethical administration.” They remind me that  “He is going to stop the silly partisan politics that have for too long plagued Washington.” And unlike Republicans, “He will no longer deal in the politics of fear to further an agenda.” All of these statements he has made in his six weeks of the Presidency. Again, talk is cheap. 

So I have to answer all of those things that are being said to me. I answer with this: He is full of shit. Here are the realities of what he is doing while saying those things to the adoring American public. 

“He is going to cut the deficit in half in the next 4 years.” He, in the first 6 weeks of his administration, has already released a statement saying that the White House will have a Deficit of 1.5 Trillion dollars in 2009. That is three times the 484 Billion deficit that bush had in 2008, which at the time was a record that the Democrats railed against over and over. And that is with what is currently planned. Who knows how many more bailouts we will see this year. It is only March 1. And the estimates for 2010 are already close to a trillion more in deficit. And these are White House numbers, which I expect are on the optimistic side. You cannot cut the deficit in half by adding to the deficit, in two years, 5 times the amount spent in any one year in history. And he knows it. It looks like talk is cheap, or really, really expensive.

“He is totally against wasteful spending and will root it out and eliminate it because government has to be smarter with our tax dollars.” This is where Nancy Pelosi jumped up and clapped like someone just told her she was elected Queen. And this was the biggest lie of them all. This is such a big lie that I am going to be dedicating an entire post just to this one lie either tomorrow or the next day. I am going to list some of the massive wasteful spending that was put into the $410 Billion government spending bill passed the day after he made this statement, in the form of 5,000+ earmarks. I will add in to that posting the wasteful spending from the stimulus bill passed two weeks ago in a record 11 hours, that was an emergency measure to “save the country”. Wasteful spending that helps fund pet projects and expand government in the name of socialism is what is being done best in the first 6 weeks. This was an outright lie by the President. You want to eliminate wasteful spending, why didn’t you veto that stimulus plan full of it? Why don’t you veto the one passed this last week? Talk is cheap, Mr. President. 

“He is going to clean up the White House by eliminating lobbyists from positions there because he is going to have an ethical administration.” By eliminating lobbyists, he meant he would be signing and executive order banning them from working in his administration, which means he only further expanded this lie. There are already 12 former lobbyists who have been selected to work in the White House by the administration that vowed to eliminate them in the name of ethics reform. What a joke. Talk is funny, but still cheap. 

“He is going to stop the silly partisan politics that have for too long plagued Washington.” By eliminating partisan politics, what he meant was that when he was challenged on his economic stimulus package by Republicans, he exclaimed that “I Won, so it gets done my way”. By eliminating partisan politics he means that the stimulus bill was negotiated by Democrats and a few liberal Senators behind closed doors where the Republican representatives that were there were not allowed to speak on the subject. They were told to zip their trap and stay out of the way. By eliminating partisan politics he means that every speech will have several references to the failed politics of the Republican party. Eliminating partisan politics? Talk is real cheap here. 

“He will no longer deal in the politics of fear to further an agenda.” What he meant to say is that he will no longer use terrorism or national security as the way to instill fear into the American public in order to get his way. No sir, the Democrats are going to use a whole different issue to get you to consent to the public raping you are receiving. The Democratic party, and especially the President has used fear of financial ruin to get America to agree to the gang rape that is taking place on the taxpayers. Republicans used fear to further their agenda too, but it is an outright lie to say you won’t use the same tactic. You meant you just won’t use the same device for instilling fear that the Republicans used. Talk is cheap here too. 

The President has lied to us over and over again. I know you folks on the left are going to rail about how Bush lied. Perhaps he did. But we have seen ten times the lies in just the first 6 weeks. We are just getting started here folks. I like the man. I think he is probably a decent man and a pragmatic thinker. I do believe that he believes that he is doing something that is the best thing for the country. If I had to speculate, I would guess that he figures Americans simply don’t know what is best for themselves. I would guess he thinks giant government, massive increases in social spending, and taxing the rich are what the country needs, regardless of what the people think. And that justifies a couple of little white lies in his speeches to cover up what he is doing. After all, the idiots on the Right will talk some common sense on the talk radio stations and get them fired up because they aren’t smart enough to know how stupid the crazy right-wingers are. But we Democrats know, so we will pass these things quickly and quietly to get the people what is best for them whether they think so or not. They will thank us later. 

I am giving him a very large benefit of the doubt there. Assuming that he means well. Assuming that he really believes the madness that he is doing to the country is going to be good for us. But here’s the thing, Mr. President, you aren’t allowed to make that decision for us. We elected you to serve us. Which means whatever you want to pass should be done in the light of day, publicly debated and approved by the people. You are not allowed to change the entire scope of government, even if you believe it is the best way forward, without the will of the people behind you. A slim 3 million vote win in a country of 300 million is not a “mandate” to move the country to socialism. As a 4 year steward of the country, it is not your right to re-make America into a socialist like state because you think it is better.

Mr. President, you took an oath to protect and defend the constitution of the United States of America. And that constitution doesn’t say that it is OK to have state run banks, state run health care, a massive government stake in private industry. That constitution does not say that you can use government funds to finance partisan groups like ACORN that work to advance the Democratic socialist agenda. Mr. President, THAT CONSTITUTION DOES NOT STATE THAT INCOME REDISTRIBUTION IS A PART OF WHAT GOVERNMENT IS ALLOWED TO DO. 

Yet that is the “mandate” that the Democrats now claim to have. They won’t come out and call is socialism. But that is what it is. At least Guy, in posting here, was honest enough to say it was and that he supported it being so. But these politicians are not willing to admit that this is what they are doing. And they won’t admit so because to do so would be an admission that EVERYTHING they are doing is in direct violation of the Constitution of the United States of America. 

And that, dear readers, is exactly why we have to get to work.

  1. I try to look for a silver lining in every cloud. The new administration is a hell of a cloud, but maybe this move to socialize our United States is the slap in the face “We the People” need. We become complacent as a nation…not a good thing, but true none the less. This could possibly the jolt the American people need to wake them up. It has certainly jolted me…I am awake, and I am watching very closely what this new administration is shoving down our throats…it tastes bad and I am pissed off about it.

  2. No more “politics of fear”? I guess that means “last one out, shut off the lights”.

    “The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.” – H. L. Mencken

  3. Terry:
    I was a little worried when I read the first part of you first sentence, but then I realized we were on the same page. Sometimes it does take someone standing on the edge of a building for people to realize how bad it could get. Honestly, I was hoping Obama would prove me wrong….that he would come to the middle and do what is best for this country. Unfortunatly that didn’t happen and it is getting worse every day.

  4. Wake Up! This guy does not mean well. That’s the kind of thinking that most allows most Americans to shake their bobble head up and down in agreement with him while all around them, in their REAL lives, everything’s going to hell in a handbasket. The dow is below 7000 today, which means that average folks have literally seen their life savings simply disappear into thin air. Yet they “give him the benefit of the doubt”. His playbook is Alinky’s Rules for Radicals; create chaos, create class warfare. He WANTS this crisis to continue, so that he can push his agenda and gain even more power. Have you read about who sponsored this guy to get into Harvard, Khalid-al-Mansour, and all of his shady associations with the Middle East?? There is something much bigger going on here than just a socialist leaning Democrat running amok. There are back door moves being made to circumvent laws and Consitutional Rights, re: gun rights, speech, even the freedom to pursue happiness. There is a concerted effort to legalize millions of illegal aliens and embrace them to shore up the Democrat party, ensuring a one party system. We are under attack folks. It is time to take off he blinders and call this guy what he is: a malignant narcissist who wants complete CONTROL over our lives. We are not talking happy shiny Swedish style socialism here. It’s a new brand of Marxism. We don’t have time to give him the benefit of the doubt. After 100 days in office, he will have “fundamentally transformed” this country, just like he said he would. What will he do in 4 years? http://www.timetorevoltamerica.com

    I’m always amazed of the brain-split people have in politics.

    When it’s “their guy” in power, they roll over into the ridiculous to defend “their guy” no matter how horrid his actions (see USWep defend Bush) —

    — yet at the whisper of of a distortion of “that guy”, he’s the devil incarnate!

    But that’s the game, isn’t it? Two sides of the same coin claiming “heads” is far better then “tails” — and demanding another flip of that coin to prove it!

    • USWeapon says:

      BF,

      That is not correct, and is at best another distortion from you. I clearly stated that I did not wish to defend Bush and that I was arguing for the sake of hashing out the truth of the facts. I have made clear my intention to call anyone on their partisan statements that get in the way of intelligent dialogue that allows us to learn and realize that both parties are bad. In doing what I do, I end up at times appearing to defend both sides. If you would like me to spend a couple hours writing a post about the way that the Bush administration also abused the constitution, I could do so. But the point seems a little moot now. He is in Texas doing nothing.

      Besides…. I don’t think you should be chiding anyone who “rolls over into the ridiculous” to defend a position. You sir, are the Chuck Norris of that discipline.

  6. You have to give Obama credit for one thing. I can’t remember a President in my lifetime that exposed his campaign lies so quickly. It took 3-4 or sometimes 5-6 years to expose the others. Maybe its the new generations need to be moving faster than the older out of touch crowd. The effect of all this new technology I guess.

  7. Black Flag says:

    USWeapon said

    You sir, are the Chuck Norris of that discipline.

    Direct insults get you no where.

    You are advocating that a Republican alternative – as if, suddenly, not having the Presidency makes them wise – while having the Presidency…. they demonstrated precisely the same attitudes, and actions as the Democrats.

    I laugh in your direction – both parties equally steal your money, redistribute it widely, pork barrel, make war, and wreck the economy. And for reason because one wears a red shirt, and another wears the blue – you see some fundamental difference.

  8. BF,

    US W is pretty darn fair-minded in his assessment of the players and their games in government, right or left. This is not about parties; it’s about Constitutional rights which have been violated on both sides of the aisle. The undeniable fact is that the erosion of our rights is now being done in a turbo charged fashion, using extremely shrewd and well thought out measures. We have not seen anything like this before in our country, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with calling a spade a spade. Particularly when so many out there are either afraid to do so, or are blinded by a message which is, by design, inherently false.

  9. G. A. Rowe says:

    BF;

    What? Only four sentences? You can’t be getting tired of writing books now, just when you were on such a roll;-)

  10. Mad Mom: It has happened before in our history. The Woodrow Wilson and FDR administrations were much worse, so far. But BHO may put them to shame as he’s just getting started. Their history should be a good lesson to us on just how far this could go and how fast.

  11. G. A. Rowe says:

    On a serious note . . . What is being said here is really sad. There are vast differences between a “Do-er” and a “Talker”. Even though most folks say they didn’t like him, GWB was a “Do-er”. A trained fighter pilot, like all military types(yes, I am one of them military types), is trained to make very quick decisions and live or die with with those decisions. Like him or not, he did what he said he was going to do. Obama, on the other hand, has been saying for the last two years that he was not a “politics-as-usual” kinda guy . . . That he hated the “Old Cronies” in evil Washington DC. Then he picks one of the oldest cronies to be his V.P. and nobody seen that coming? Actions speak louder than words.

    If anybody is surprised at what the Liberal/Socialist/Communist/Democratic Party is doing now that they have total control, I have absolutely no sympathy for you. Why do you think that George McGovern was so soundly beaten? After that embarrassing defeat, they changed tactics and now we have Barack Hussain Obama in all his double talking glory. No, they is not shoving anything down our throats, they are shoving it up our rectums!

    It’s been happening since Sept.12 2001 – and had nothing to do with Obama.

    Yes, he hasn’t stuck a cork into the rush whatsoever, and may indeed be adding to the flood – but one can hardly put blame in his lap – there has been ample precedent before him.

  14. Black Flag says:

    G.A.

    When it comes to government, I’d rather have a mere “talker” instead of a ‘Doer’ any day.

  15. Black Flag says:

    Unfortunately, Obama is a doer

    See this and weep.

  16. BF: Flip the axis and you have the change in money supply. We just can’t escape the “hockey stick” mentality among graphic artists these days. Can’t be the policy makers fault, must be the guys making the graphs!

  17. Just passing by.Btw, you website have great content!

  18. Just a Citizen: The changes that are occuring have not happened with such speed and intensity of purpose in our history. We are talking a month and half into office for BHO and the spending proposals equal all spending done from the beginning of the Republic up to the point he came into office. Read the background of FDR and WW compared to BHO and it is clear that the intent here is a whole different animal.

  19. G. A. Rowe says:

    Bf;

    Here tiz! BHO is the exact replica of what the native Americans used to talk about “waaay back when” . . . Says one thing and does another. BHO speak with forked tongue!

    GWB Said what he would do then did what he said he would do. So, you prefer a bold faced liar to someone who would tell the truth?

    I have known a few fighter pilots in my day, and I have yet to meet one that I wouldn’t trust – and that includes Cunningham.

    I have also known more than a few lawyers in my day – some are good friends of mine – and I wouldn’t trust any of them as far as I could throw them. BHO is a lawyer.

  20. GA Rowe: Exactly! Lawyers are trained to trick and manipulate and twist the truth to get their way. They are unapologetic about this ability. And the American people are falling for the trickery.

  21. Black Flag says:

    G. A. Rowe

    Gee, you leave me with the (false) dichotomy of either a well-spoken, intelligent evil guy who believes he the 2nd coming, or a mumbling, moronic, mumbling evil guy who doesn’t read (his own admission).

  22. Mad Mom: I maintain the intent is not a different animal. It is one and the same. The one today has the benefit of the others in terms of what it wanted and didn’t get and how to get it done this time. My other comment was in response to how fast our liberty or rights are being affected. The other two characters had law abiding citizens put in jail for disagreeing with them. FDR jailed folks for not charging govt prescribed prices for goods (they wanted to sell for less during a depression). Massive gov’t paid propoganda machines with citizens encouraged to turn in their neighbors.

    You can’t look at the runners sprint to the end as the whole race. They wouldn’t have a chance if they had not run the rest of the race as well as the last leg. This is the “rebirth of the progressive movement” according to those who openly talk about it. That was a quote from one of their folks.

    Don’t mistake my intent here. I think the current Admin is dangerous. But not by itself. It is the movement that supports Pelosi, Reid, et al that is the true danger. That has been around for along time and now has congress and the white house, and many of the angencies, which can be even worse. And, remember, Obama has nothing to do with our current problems, except his fearful talk. His impact will be seen over the coming year.

  23. What gets me is that the majority of the media will not comment on the lies and broken promises. Cut the deficit in half in four years. That is not a promise
    that he has the power to make. Eliminate wasteful spending and lobbyist in the
    White House and end partisan politics. Those were entirely in his power and he made no attempt to keep his word.

  24. Citizen, great points. But I still maintain (and maybe it’s the scientist in me), look at the backgrounds, look at what molded these individuals, look at the psychological aspects behind their intent. BHO has the movement that has always been there looking for an outlet behind him, but he IS a different animal. Do you not think that he would imprison people for similarly ridiculous reasons if he had the opportunity to do so without an outcry from the people? In time, he may do so; that is why he craves the crisis mentality; because it puts people in he frame of mind to do exactly what FDR did, to yield ultimate authority to the government. Did FDR propose an Internal Security Force to rival the military? Take FDR and add in a hefty dose of malignant narcissism; what do you get? BHO.
    .

  25. Black Flag says:

    look at the psychological aspects behind their intent.

    I wish everyone would do that!

    Anyone who believes legal violence can solve non-violent problems has a mental problem – no matter what initials he has….

  26. Mad Mom: I agree the leaders WW,FDR,BHO have different backgrounds and were thus diff. animals each. The forces that bred them is the same. I think BO and the current progressives are a little more aggressive because their frustration has grown since McGovern got whipped. There is more anger this time not just idealism of new centralized planning and control movement.

    I do believe Wilson’s administration did in fact have a private security internal security force.

    One thing that is very diff. this time is the broad scale of this movement at the global scale. The likes of Soros et al changes the equation due to the large number of organizations they have influence over, all supporting the Pelosi, Reid, Obama agenda.

  27. Another nice posting US – a few of my thoughts randomly:

    There are many things for our President to be given credit for – some good and some bad. Most politicians remind me of nothing more than polished huckters that have mastered creative language – you see – while he as amplified your (and ours generally) passion, much of what comes out of his mouth must be taken with a massive grain of salt. There is some truth in there, some b.s., and something else in between. Do I think the deficit will be cut in half in the next four years? Honestly – no. It will require a perfect storm of circumstances and there is the ‘we don’t know what we don’t know”. President Bush, far left liberals and conspiracy theorists be damned, could not have expected 9/11 and the disastrous effect it had on our economy and national psyche. Neither can we adequately anticipate what may occur in the next four years – if anything – the cyclical nature of things tells us something will happen.

    I’ll say as I have before – I voted for the guy and I will give him credit for lofty goals and plans that are, at least initially, matching some of the lofty rhetoric espoused. Give the man credit, he’s continually biting more and more off – don’t agree with it all – but my biggest worry today has become – who is going to manage all this shit? Yes it does speak to a machinery under the covers – all the advisers that I suppose are taking the agenda and full steam ahead. One thing I have noticed – a continual reminder in his words that ‘we’ asked for change, so here ya go. It is as if he not just putting us all on the hook, but in a way placing himself in third person. If none of this shit works, then, well, that’s too bad. The larger the experiment the more chance for bigger results – both to the positive and the negative.

    We have in a way asked this man and those he brought in to make life and death decisions for us. As much as I feel my own anxiety over how deep in the shitter we really are, I recall fanatically telling my wife and family that years ago we had to invade Iraq – weapons were trained on us ready to strike at any minute. So I too must relaity check myself and find a way that I can support this guy, but ensure that the debate is there, decisions are challenged and every instance of increasing government is taken to task. This administration has shown an inventiveness to try new things (e.g. what is occurring at the State Dept) – I will generally support such efforts but we must know when to challenge, when to change course and when to throw the bullshit flag. I don’t agree that every action taken thus far merits the flag, but I also vehemently oppose ram rodding spending bills down our throats that have had not seen the light of adequate debate. I am a Democrat, I know we ‘won’ the Congress and the Oval Office, but I also know that doesn’t mean the agenda du jour is never wrong.

    Finally – MOM – what in the world is with this Khalid-al-Mansour drivel? It smells of right wink Michael Moore-ishness. I was not sure of where this was going or what you were insinuating?

    US – I will give Guy kudos on the Denny Green quote – but I don’t know that he realized how context can quickly change meaning. Yes – our politicians are who we thought they were – but boy do I hope we are no longer letting them off the hook.

  28. Mad F. Diggity says:

    It’s no wonder that so many Americans are in debt. The role model for spending has been corrupting our common sense. When has spending beyond one’s ability to repay a good investment for the future? Since money has become almost entirely digital, we no longer see the consequence of the lack of it. As long as you have a credit card, spend away. This has become America’s mantra, set by the very people that run it. Where are we headed? We need only seek our our neighbor’s credit card statement to answer that question. There is only one way out of this mess and it’s called elbow-grease.

    Let’s stand up for common sense, America!

  29. Ray, I get the sense that you are not yet regretful for you vote. I do sense a bit of anxiety though. That is at least a start. I really hope I am wrong, (but fear I am not)but the current POTUS is leading us into an ambush, and the majority of the platoon is beginning to realize it. God help us…

  30. Nowhere in the constitution does it specify that a massive federal socialist state can replace the constitutional republic that was originally created. Progressive politics have steadily been allowed to work their mealy mouthed social agendas into the system of the federal government and the experiment has failed miserably with spiraling debt and uncontrolled budget defecits… this is not in any way a nod to the republicans because they’ve played just as big a role in the bastardization of the government as the socialists.

    I guess we’ll just have to wait for total economic collapse of the current federal system and start from scratch… states are asserting their sovereignty, military personnel are questiong the president’s authority, the economic markets are heading straight down the pipe and our government’s solution is to turn up the volume when what we need to do is turn the damned radio off. Obama will prove himself to be the biggest mistake America ever made… never has the first 60 days of an administration been so contentious. The writing is on the wall.

  31. Wingmanx31 says:

    There are a lot of intelligent things being said here which is a wonderful expression of free speech while we have it. The constitution is in jeopardy and the current administration is kicking the ladder of support out from under it. I’m not going to slam anyone’s candidate just make a simple statement. Look at the bill of rights yes that’s right the first of the amendments to the constitution. Read them and tell me that the current administration supports these. The amendments were the foundation for the ratification of the new constitution after the articles of confederation failed our country. The states and people demanded the amendments before we moved forward. :

    * First Amendment – Establishment Clause, Free Exercise Clause; freedom of speech, of the press, and of assembly; right to petition

    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

    * Second Amendment – Right to keep and bear arms.

    A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. [6][7]

    * Third Amendment – Protection from quartering of troops.

    No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.

    * Fourth Amendment – Protection from unreasonable search and seizure.

    The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

    * Fifth Amendment – due process, double jeopardy, self-incrimination, eminent domain.

    No person shall be held to answer for any capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

    * Sixth Amendment – Trial by jury and rights of the accused; Confrontation Clause, speedy trial, public trial, right to counsel

    In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district where in the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defense.

    * Seventh Amendment – Civil trial by jury.

    In suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise re-examined in any court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.

    * Eighth Amendment – Prohibition of excessive bail and cruel and unusual punishment.

    Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.

    * Ninth Amendment – Protection of rights not specifically enumerated in the Bill of Rights.

    The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

    * Tenth Amendment – Powers of states and people.

    The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.

    There are a lot of things here that most people have never seen or just don’t bother to think about. It is very said to see the man on the street commentaries by the late night talk show guy that show us that foreigners know more about the American form of government than we do. Now to my main point lest just look at the first amendment again:

    * First Amendment – Establishment Clause, Free Exercise Clause; freedom of speech, of the press, and of assembly; right to petition

    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

    Now let me see the current administration is repealing an action form the last administration that protected doctor’s from being forced to perform operations( ok abortions ) due to their own personal beliefs. Now lets not get into pro choice versus pro life that’s not the point. The point is Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. Now there is a fine point that this was a presidential decree and not a law passed by congress. But when a doctors job is in jeopardy because he has a moral objection to performing a procedure but cannot do so out of fear where has our country gone. Now I’m not a doctor but they also take an oath, the Hippocratic Oath, although not require anymore this oath is quite interesting considering it originated 4th century BC and all doctors once swore to it. You should take a look at it. But more importantly you should look at the first ten amendments of the constitution. the constitution itself and all of the following amendments and add up how many in your own opinion have been violated in the first few months of this administration. There are several in the first ten, so educate yourself and remember the rest of the world uses our constitution one of the main base documents for creation their own why should we let our elected officials continue to sidestep it!
