Actually, Obama has accelerated the build-up of his non-sworn group of civilians who, by means of various loopholes, now have the power and authority to detain you indefinitely.
By “non-sworn” I mean they have no sworn loyalty to America, as do all military personnel and all local, county, state, and federal law enforcement officers. We’ve all sworn an oath to our Constitution, the foundation upon which all other laws in our country stem.
They haven’t. The forces Obama is amassing have not sworn such an oath. They are loyal only to their paycheck and to an employment document they sign which says they’ll follow Obama’s orders. They don’t serve the American people.
The sworn oath is the BACKBONE of integrity in our country. As per our Constitution, ALL officers and officials throughout our government are required to swear (or affirm) their oaths of office before assuming that office. It’s designed to prevent tyranny, the consolidation of power which leads to dictatorships. Our tricameral balance of powers in our government is a highly desired, stabilizing effect.
Obama’s subversion of the sworn oath by means of the build-up of a non-sworn group of people with nearly unlimited powers of arrest, violating your Constitutional rights by means of the NDAA wormhole, are nothing more than a clear and un-Constitutional grab at tyrannical power, quite possibly to undermine the upcoming election and quell all objections to it, by deceit, force, and detention, possibly under the guise of race riots.
To that end, Obama has made numerous comments about the suspension or circumvention of our Constitution, the foundation of law to which we’re sworn. He has talked at length about the suspension of both our First and Second Amendment rights, the First to prevent us from writing about it, and the Second so we’d be unable to defend our rights if they’re challenged.
Fortunately, some 50 Million of Americans have taken the oath to support and defend our Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. If you’re a member of the U.S. Military, government, or law enforcement at any level, among several other professions, you may have taken an oath of office.
If we all adhere to our oaths of office, our country will be ok. We absolutely must, however, be willing to make some hard, law-abiding choices. We must do our duty, even when the chips are down.
It’s what we do, people. We’re Americans. Take the high road.
