Oath of the President Violated
Oath Taken Doesn't Mean Much
When the newly elected President of the United States take his oath of office, he's suppose to mean it. He is suppose to uphold the Constitution which includes the Bill of Rights. The Bill of Rights is what gives us all our freedoms, including freedom of speech, freedom to bear arms, etc. Our last two Presidents have violated not only that oath but our Constitution in general and We The People had stood by and not said a word.
George W. Bush allowed Homeland Security and other groups to listen into phone conversations supposedly to look for suspected terrorist groups amongst us. At the end of his last term, it was brought forward and was he imprisoned or punished for violating his oath? Absolutely not, and he should have been. It might have prevented a few things from happening. He also flat out lied about Saddam Hussein having weapons of mass destruction so he could go in and finish what his daddy knew better than to do.
Now, as of January 1st, 2011, President Barrack Obama has put the icing on the cake and signed into law the ADAA which, in essence, makes the Bill of Rights obsolete. It takes away American citizens right to an attorney, a trial, and the right to be innocent until proven guilty. The government has the right to detain you indefinitely if they feel you are a national security risk. I want them to define what a security really is? If we don't agree with the government does that make us a risk? I hope not, because I think 99% of Americans could be detained.
For this law to be passed, however, CONGRESS had to pass it too. Not just the President signed this bill into action, but our own elected officials took it into their own hands to take away our rights as citizens of the United States of America.
But as for the last two Presidents... did you or did you not promise the following?
"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."
