US Constitution a Flawed Document?
Mr Obama thinks it's flawed because of the men who were enforcing it at the time of slavery. Their thinking was flawed but the document is not; he's mistaken. The document clearly contains language to include all men but it was selectively enforced in the historical time period he's referring to, to exclude people of different races.
The Constitution does not exclude or include any one race of people. He should have said we should have laws that support the document to truly be the America we could be. Our society does not live up to the US Constitution. If we did, our society would be enlightened and free for all men regardless of color, religion and nationality. I think it shows he has not read the very document he intends to swear an oath to, or more sinister, he's relying on the American people to not know what the Constitution actually says and rely on him to tell them, although not truthful, what to think of the document. If Americans actually read our founding documents they would see he's trying to pull the wool over their eyes. The sooner the Constitution is suspended the sooner the powers that be can turn our nation over to Socialism and a fascist government.
My hope is Americans read our founding documents and then realize he's lying, and from there to what motivation. The documents are all provided in my links to the right. Please read them and see for yourself. The very fact that he is lying and nobody flinches proves Americans don't know their founding documents. A nation of smart educated Americans would spot this snake oil salesman in a heartbeat.
If he wants to talk about a biased governmental form of racism lets talk about the "war on drugs". He has never once mentioned an end to this government racism sanctioned by our legislators and mainly targeting African Americans. The statistics don't lie. Even Ron Paul wanted an end to the war on drugs because it was a targeted war on minorities. We all know as a society, this is the case and yet this man is supposedly standing for the powerless; my ass. The Constitution if honored, would protect all men; we just have to let it and stop undermining it at every turn. The war on drugs isn't working! A record 7 million people -- one in every 32 U.S. adults -- were behind bars, on probation or on parole by the end of 2005. From 1995 to 2003, inmates incarcerated in federal prisons for drug offenses have accounted for 49 percent of total prison population growth. The study found that racial disparities among prisoners persist. In the 25-29 age group, 8.1 percent of black men -- about one in 13 -- are incarcerated, compared with 2.6 percent of Hispanic men and 1.1 percent of white men. The figures are not much different among women. By the end of 2005, black women were more than twice as likely as Hispanics and more than three times as likely as white women to be in prison. Source. Let's see this change Obama, put your money where your mouth is!
If he intends to take an oath to that Constitution and is saying it's flawed we have a real problem. The whole problem in the last one hundred years has been this out right refusal to honor the document that sets us all free. The appropriate answer for Mr Obama would have been the document is flawed in that men interpret it with their own bias. If we truly honored the words in the Declaration of Independence, that "all men are created equal" we could have the society the founders truly intended for America. His rejection of the US Constitution and our founding documents is a very scary position; he's rejecting America as a whole. The documents support the position he claims to hold yet rejects the documents saying they don't. What does that say about the man and how he feels about America? The document does say not say these freedoms apply to only one group of people, but all people. How is that flawed? The interpretation was always the problem. That does not make the document flawed; but those responsible for protecting and enforcing it like congress, the president, the senate, the police and public servants; a group of which he is a part of, have an obligation to honor it and why they take an oath to it. They have failed their oath and the document, the document has not failed us.
I'm very saddened at his position on the US Constitution. We are in serious trouble as a nation!
