Convention of Statesmen


Obama's Clarion Call for Support

I've had so many people ask me why I don't support our new president. I look at them, or my computer screen, completely dumbfounded. Yes, he is my president although Barack Obama was not the man I voted for and I fought against him winning with everything in me. But now that the inaugural fawning has been completed and the media is still swimming in conjugal bliss, I paid attention to what Obama did his first days in office. I will continue to check every single day ( to see what other Executive Orders he signs and what constitutional rights continue to slip away. I will call him on it, and call upon my friends, associates and family to do the same.

So let's take a look at what Obama wants us to come together and support him over no matter what we believe.

The closing of Guantanamo Bay. Support him? No. The last thing I was is more enemies with the burning desire to ultimately destroy America on American soil and with access to our prison cultures. Signed.

The closing of naval bases and detention facilities. Support him? No. I don't agree this is a wise decision, and find this one and the one above to foolish beyond all reason. Signed.

The sweeping away of the ban on partial birth abortions and the denial of medical care to infants who survive abortion. Not yet signed. And a big fat HELL NO!

The "remaking of America" as he stated it in his proclamation for renewal and reconciliation. Nope, nuh uh . . . if it involves the rewriting of the Constitution - No. If it involves the restructuring of government into a communist regime - No. If it involves socialist principles - No.

He's a very sly man. Calling for this unity and in so doing attempting to paint those of us who are true Americans as divisive and hateful. Nothing could be further from the truth. We have the Constitutional right to disagree with our leaders and to vote them out of office when we perceive they are damaging America. Barack didn't wait at all before beginning to chip away at what is left of America.

On January 23rd, it was reported by that Obama "ended the War on Terror as defined by the Bush Administration." This administration which kept another attack from happening on U.S. Soil. This administration who took the war off our soil and onto the soil of the Middle East, that the battle may be fought far from American shores. This administration who used everything at its dispoal to root out and stop multiple daily terrorist attacks on U.S. soil. Check to discover how much the Bush Administration stopped and tell me Obama made a wise decision. He's opened us up to and made us vulnerable to an insidious, cowardly enemy without stopping to consider the consequences. It doesn't bode well for the next four years.

Karl Marx, the architect of communism stated in 1867:

"Owners of capitalism will stimulate [the] working class to buy more and more of expensive goods, houses and technology, pushing them to take more and more expensive credits, until their debt becomes unbearable. The unpaid debt will lead to bankruptcy of banks which will have to be nationalized and [the] State will have to take the road which will eventually lead to communism." Karl Marx, Das Kapital, 1867

So no, President Obama, I will not blindly fall behind you and follow with stars in my eyes and greed and foolishness warring in my heart. I will stand, as Americans have stood before, and defend my country from enemies both within and without. I will not "go quietly into that good night" but will call loud and clear to patriots across the land. Now is the time to stand. For as each day goes by the America we love will slip more and more away. If we hope to defend democracy, we must rise up with pen and voice and make it clear, we will not take it anymore.

Long live the America my ancestors fought and died over. Long live the America I love. Long live freedom and democracy. Long live the Constitution of the United States of America. Long live hope. Long live the right to pursue a dream. Long live the right of the people to privacy. Long live America, the land of the free and the home of the brave.
