Departing From the Constitutional Road….

“No country upon earth ever had it more in its power to attain these blessings than United America. Wondrously strange, then, and much to be regretted indeed would it be, were we to neglect the means and to depart from the road which Providence has pointed us to so plainly; I cannot believe it will ever come to pass.”
—George Washington, letter to Benjamin Lincoln, June 29, 1788

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
–Preamble to The United States Constitution

The Constitution of the United States has endured for over two centuries. It remains the object of reverence for nearly all Americans and an object of admiration by peoples around the world. William Gladstone was right in 1878 when he described the U.S. Constitution as “the most wonderful work ever struck off at a given time by the brain and purpose of man”.

–Edwin Meese III; The Heritage Guide to the Constitution, p1

We assume that in fact no one would dare to run for and claim the Presidency if he/she didn’t meet the qualifications of the Constitution.

–From TD Blog, “Four Questions for the Trogan Candidate”

While International socialists gloat (“American has been cut down to size”)* and smug former terrorists (that would be Ayers and Dohrn) blandly proclaim they meant no harm, one can only hope that come January 20th Chief Justice Roberts will have assured himself that Barack H. Obama is indeed eligible to attain to the office of President of The United States. The nation teeters on the brink of a constitutional crisis so huge that it actually could be ignored or dismissed by the very people (that would be the supremes)** who are sworn to uphold it.

*…. America has been cut down to size and the beneficiaries are those who were always jealous of her wealth and power. The result will not only be less U.S economic power but the diminution of American military power. One will inevitably follow the other, especially if more U.S. manufacturing industries go bankrupt.

**In the United States, federal judges are required to take not just one, but two oaths. The first oath is this:

I, XXX XXX, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will administer justice without respect to persons, and do equal right to the poor and to the rich, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge and perform all the duties incumbent upon me as XXX under the Constitution and laws of the United States. So help me God.

The second oath that federal judges must take is this::

I, AB, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.

    Justice Seuter in the case Berg v Obama, and Justice Thomas in Donofrio v Well are both at the Supreme Court NOW. There is hope the responsibility will not compromise Chief Justice Roberts in that we hope to know the truth before then.

  2. steadyjohn Says:

    A huge letter writing campaign is in order here. If the court, and especially Justice Thomas, understand the depth of feeling out here they feel more disposed to give these cases a fair hearing. Please write to Justice Clarence Thomas:

    The Honorable Associate Justice
    Clarence Thomas
    United States Supreme Court
    One First St. N. E.
    Washington DC 20543

    Put docket # on Envelope 08-A407
