Try as I might to find just exactly where Obama has kept his myriad of campaign promises there was one that I have found, resoundingly.
The fundamental fact of the United States is that it represents "freedom and liberty" based upon the founding documents (Constitution and the Bill of Rights).
So the question is, has this President fundamentally changed the United States of America? The answer is an absolute YES.
In the case of the US Constitution Obama has had the most profound effects. He has blatantly breached or outright disregarded its charter since the very beginning. As a result he has also shredded the "US Bill of Rights" as a result.
"The Bill of Rights enumerates freedoms not explicitly indicated in the main body of the Constitution, such as freedom of religion, freedom of speech, a free press, and free assembly; the right to keep and bear arms; freedom from unreasonable search and seizure, security in personal effects, and freedom from warrants issued without probable cause; indictment by a grand jury for any capital or "infamous crime"; guarantee of a speedy, public trial with an impartial jury; and prohibition of double jeopardy.
There are many examples of this in his policies and he knows that he can breach these areas initially and wait for our system of balance to address them causing a delay of rectification, if any. For instance the "freedom of religion" has been breached by Obamacare's inclusion of abortifacients and the penalty for those of faith to adhere to the policy against their beliefs. In another area -- "freedom of speech" was breached as a result of the intentional targeting of conservative groups by the IRS. This breach had profound ramifications on the last US Presidential election as the hold-up of those particular 501(c)(3) applicants kept them on the sidelines and out of the election fray.
The federal government is actively seeking to breach the 2nd Amendment rights. The unrelenting assault against gun ownership continues, unabated and in earnest. The Justice Department is at the forefront of this battle to take away our guns while at the same time providing them to Drug Cartels. The State Department under John Kerry has signed onto the UN Arms Ban Treaty and the ratification is just a heartbeat away by the Senate. The Senate as you know is controlled by the Democrats. Those who think it won't be ratified had better wake up.
The Justice Department has become so politicized and acts as a thug of this administration in many areas. When Obama stressed that the US needs a civilian defense force that rivals the military in size, strength and funding, it is clear that it is already occurring. The large influx of federal jobs has assured this reality. The DHS has been buying and hording ammunition and military like assets. The Park police have already flexed their muscle in the interdiction and harassment of citizens trying to enjoy our monuments. The IRS, well I have already discussed the harassment and personal targeted attacks against those that counter Obama's policies and philosophies.
The Senate has failed their Constitutional duties to balance the US Budget since Obama has taken office and the result has been to weaken us domestically as well as internationally as our financial strength has been eroded to the point of impossibility to function.
This administration has shunned negotiations with internal political opposition, but relishes in negotiating with terror sponsored states. Everything that America use to represent has been flipped onto its head and upside down. Reality is unbelievable. This is Obama's view of American exceptionalism.
As more and more of his insidious policies are brought to bear on a perceived helpless public the more difficult it will be to reverse and correct. This is exactly what the "Cloward-Piven Strategy" is designed to do. I used the words "perceived helpless" nomenclature to describe the public because the helplessness perception is held by the Administration and their fellow travelers because there is power growing from the grassroots who abhor what this transformation has accomplished.
There is a tipping point that is quickly approaching as America hangs in the balance. This tipping point, I believe, will show the world once again that America (or the idea of what America really is) will rise above this internal menace and right this ship of State. It will show the world that freedom and liberty are inherently American in nature and the 200+ plus years that it has flourished and taken root in our conscientiousness cannot be eradicated as it is now in our very DNA. The world will see how we, as freedom and liberty loving souls will rise to the occasion again to throw off this yoke of tyranny.
