The President, with hand on the Bible, swears to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution. A significant aim of the government set up by the Constitution is to secure the blessings of liberty. Freedom of conscience has taken a bludgeoning under our president’s watch. We suffer the tyranny of supporting with taxes and insurance premiums that are morally reprehensible to many.
Those who protect the president are well armed, but he would deny self defense to the rest of us. He is loath to hamper crazed murderers spreading carnage with fear of returned fire.
In fostering welfare dependency he outshines all of his predecessors. How liberating are fruits of government compassion: weakened motivation, poorer school performance, higher drug abuse and crime rates, more single parent families! Our president is making tax slaves of half of us so that the aristocracy can throw enough crumbs to be re-elected in perpetuity. Meanwhile, our nation flounders in economic bondage. How sad that the first U.S. President claiming kinship with those who suffered American slavery for two-and-a-half centuries should wreak such havoc with American liberty.
