One of the many problems with our government today is even while not in power, progressives believe our rights are given to us from them, not through God All Mighty through our founding fathers.
With the current animosity flaming between those who will protect our country and those to ignorant to understand why, we are fortunate to have the vigilantes who cake the U.S. Constitution seriously and are willing to put their lives on the line receiving no pay and benefits.
The elected and appointed officials of our federal government take an oath of office before undertaking their constitutional duties,
Let’s take a look at that oath, expressed as a question and answered by I do.
Do you solemnly swear that you will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that you will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that you take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that you will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which you are about to enter:
So help you God?
Imagine the poser Barack Obama taking that oath and meaning.
It’s axiomatic, If Obama said it, it’s a complete lie.

In response to their oath of office, our Congressmen and Senators answer I do but do they really mean it?
Unfortunately for the cause of freedom, the oath of office has often become only a hollow formality. Too many members of the administrative, legislative, and judicial branches of the federal government have failed to support and defend the Constitution of the United States and bear true faith and allegiance to the same.
The Constitution has been misinterpreted, abused, and subverted. As it continues to be violated, we should see how freedom is gradually being destroyed.
The word destroyed might appear to be somewhat harsh, but it is appropriate.
We ought to heed a warning made by Patrick Henry in 1775, not long before the opening shots of the War for Independence were fired at Lexington and Concord.
Henry clearly understood how freedom was being threatened by oppressive government rule. He warned against indifference, complacency, and apathy.
It is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope.
We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren, till she transforms us into beasts.
Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty?
Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation?
For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst and provide for it.
By temporal salvation€ Patrick Henry meant the preservation of freedom – the freedom to work and provide for our personal lives as we best see fit.
Henry and other patriots believed that freedom meant individuals had the ability and responsibility to plan their own lives without unnecessary government intervention.
That freedom was being threatened, and Henry was telling the colonists to wake up and confront the danger before them.
His admonition applies to us today.
If we truly want to strengthen freedom and regain what we have already lost, we will pledge ourselves to defending the Constitution.
We cannot support our Constitution, however, unless we face the fact that it is being continually ignored and betrayed.
It is time that we give some serious thought to the Constitution.
Protection from Enemies – Foreign and Domestic
The Founding Fathers who framed our Constitution in 1787 knew that individuals have certain unalienable rights – life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, as earlier expressed in the Declaration of Independence.
These rights were God-given rights.
No government or constitution gave them to the individual. Rather, the purpose of governments and constitutions was to protect these basic, God-given rights.
