President Obama admonished American citizens to live up to the Declaration of Independence, in his weekly radio address.
Interestingly, the address was made as if the 4th of July were already passed.
Obama said: “On July 4th, 1776, a small band of patriots declared that we were a people created equal – free to think and worship and live as we please. It was a declaration heard around the world – that we were no longer colonists, we were Americans, and our destiny would not be determined for us; it would be determined by us.”
The president continued: “And now, 237 years later, the United States – this improbable nation – is the greatest in the world. A land of liberty and opportunity. A global defender of peace and freedom. A beacon of hope to people everywhere who cherish those ideals.”
Obama asserted: “Generations of Americans made our country what it is today – farmers and teachers, engineers and laborers, entrepreneurs and elected leaders – people from all walks of life, from all parts of the world, all pulling in the same direction. And now we, the people, must make their task our own – to live up to the words of that Declaration of Independence, and secure liberty and opportunity for our own children, and for future generations.”
The words of Obama are interesting – coming from a man who complained about the constraints of the Founding Fathers only 3 months ago.
When Obama was speaking in Denver on his campaign to end our 2nd Amendment, he said: “You hear some of these quotes: ‘I need a gun to protect myself from the government.’ ‘We can’t do background checks because the government is going to come take my guns away.’ Well, the government is us. These officials are elected by you. They are elected by you. I am elected by you. I am constrained, as they are constrained, by a system that our Founders put in place.”
In the most shocking attempt to destroy the foundation of this nation, our US Constitution, Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) while Americans were celebrating New Year’s Eve on December 31, 2012.
In response, the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) wrote a scathing statement for the president.
The CCR said : “For the second year in a row, President Obama has caved on his threat to veto this dangerous legislation, which severely restricts his ability to transfer or provide fair trials for the 166 men who remain imprisoned at Guantanamo. The 2013 NDAA extends restrictions that have been in place for nearly two years, during which zero prisoners have been certified for transfer oversees and zero have been transferred to the U.S. for prosecution. Once again, Obama has failed to lead on Guantanamo and surrendered closure issues to his political opponents in Congress. In one fell swoop, he has belied his recent lip-service about a continued commitment to closing Guantanamo.”
Even mainstream media was shocked by the NDAA.
This holiday of remembrance for our Founding Father’s bravery for declaring themselves and our nation free from the tyranny set forth by the British crown is not a moment in time to honor with consumerism and corporatism.
Our nation is in trouble and the people need to stand united against our common enemy.
Stay home and spend time with loved ones for the 4 day weekend.
Do not support the multi-national corporations that are destroying our way of life by shopping.
Do not support the technocratic banking Elite by trading their fiat notes over this 4 day weekend to send a clear message that we are not slaves to their system, but decedents of the freemen our Founders fought to be.
Our nation is being destroyed through executive orders, social conditioning and ignorance.
It is time we began behaving as the free people we are.
