The chief responsibility of a President, as Commander-in-Chief is to insure domestic tranquility, and provide for the common defense. Which leads us to our next question, has our President done this, has Obama taken the initiative and responsibility as Commander-in-Chief to insure domestic tranquility and provided for the the common defense? In my opinion he has not. Any honest person would answer no to that question, I think. He has neglected to provide our military with the intelligence and resources to stop Islamic Jihadists, he moreover lacks the ability to see ISIS as a threat to the world, our homeland and overseas allies in particular.
Under a Christian perspective, we pray for peace, and proclaim profoundly the gospel of peace, but because of man’s fallen nature, the realities of war remain. This should be the unifying message that resounds throughout America, that we are all equally working together to make America that shining beacon of hope that President Ronald Reagan spoke about so many years ago. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Liberal Democrats have, for years, been spreading the notion of “inequality” and used that word to create division among the people of the many states. Multiculturalism, and political correctness are two other forms of thought that come to mind, which are used to creation division.
A house divided against itself will not stand. I look at these philosophical underpinnings of Marxism and its many forms of thought as inflicted wounds on our nation, and when we are wounded, we are not as strong, and therefore, more vulnerable to attack. Enemies of America such as Islam then key in on this weakness, waiting for the weakest point such that they can strike America.
So, what, as Americans do we do, if we do not have a strong Commander-in-Chief who not willing to abide by his duties, and the oath upon which he swore? Well, right now, the only thing left standing is our Constitution. No, the Constitution has not been heeded, and the spirit with which our Founders intended for it has not be carried out by our government, but it is there for we the people, it gives us, as sovereign states the ability to defend ourselves through the second and tenth amendments. It protects our lives, our liberties, and our property.
Given this is the case, and our government is unwilling to abide by the Constitution to defend and protects its citizens, then it is our duty to be on watch guard to defend ourselves against invasions by foreign or domestic entities into our lives.
We the people are the checks and balances now! The defenders of justice, liberty, peace, and law!
