Since the time that the United States of America elected our first "black" president, not one single metric has gotten better. We could go through his entire ideology to point out how he is wrong on everything he believes, but let's focus on just one topic instead.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
I am not sure when I first grasped the content of the First Amendment, but I think that I was in the third grade or thereabouts. Obviously, Barry Obama, the "Constitutional Scholar," has never seen this little thing contained in our country's legalese or either he has read it and determined it to be irrelevant to his governance.
Let's take a look at some other things that he could ignore instead.
Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.
Section 2. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.
Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
Section 2. Representatives shall be apportioned among the several States according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each State, excluding Indians not taxed. But when the right to vote at any election for the choice of electors for President and Vice President of the United States, Representatives in Congress, the Executive and Judicial officers of a State, or the members of the Legislature thereof, is denied to any of the male inhabitants of such State, being twenty-one years of age, and citizens of the United States, or in any way abridged, except for participation in rebellion, or other crime, the basis of representation therein shall be reduced in the proportion which the number of such male citizens shall bear to the whole number of male citizens twenty-one years of age in such State.
Section 3. No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may, by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.
Section 4. The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.
Section 5. The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.
Section 1. The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude.
Section 2. The Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.
You see, you either follow the law or you do not. You cannot pick and choose what laws you do or do not follow or else you open yourself to the CHANCE that all laws can be struck from the record.
Now, when the colonists, WHO WERE SLAVE OWNERS!!!, decided that they had had enough bullshit from the government in faggy, old England, they got together and kicked the shit out of their masters in the government. A few years later, those very people got together again and decided to finally do away with slavery in all its forms.
If we do the actual math, the newly formed United States of America had legal slavery from 1787 to 1865, a total of seventy-eight (78) years. By way of comparison, faggy, old England had legal slavery from around 927 to 1833, a total of about nine hundred six (906) years. England had legal slavery for about eleven times longer than the United States. Get that through your heads, y'all.
By the way, if you are remotely curious when the FIRST black member of Parliament was elected, that would be 1987, when three were elected. As far as blacks were elected to Congress, the first black REPUBLICANS were elected in 1870. The first black DEMOCRAT was elected in 1935, 65 years later.
Now, I told y'all all this history, of which "Progressives" know nothing, to explain to y'all what is happening in our country.
We have a president that has determined that the VERY FIRST amendment to our Constitution means nothing. That has ramifications that are going to cause many problems in the years ahead. You see, Democrats use race to determine everything. Since this horrible President just happens to have a darker skin color, his monumental failures are going to be assigned to the color of his skin by Democrats. Of course, ignore the fact that is the only reason he got elected in the very first place. Now, if history is any indicator of the future at all, Barry Obama's chances of reelection are very slim and that is a good thing.
NOT! because of his skin color, but because of his desire to undermine the Constitution.
Obama has made it perfectly clear that he is determined to FORCE the Catholic Church to administer contraceptives to their employees. "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof" is unimportant to him and he has made that perfectly clear. This sets a dangerous precedent for the future when the typical Democrat gets elected again. If Obama is allowed to ignore the Bill of Freaking Rights, why would another Democrat President not be allowed to ignore the subsequent amendments?
Meet the New Democrat, same as the old Democrat!
