The Forth of July is coming up in couple of days. Many of you will be going to parades, parties and other events, where you may well encounter a candidate who is running for congress this year. If you do, do your best to corner them and ask the following questions and make them give you a straight answer:
1. Which is more important, the US Flag or The Bill of Rights?
2. Which is more important, preventing two men (or two women) from committing to each other or that your personal financial data is kept private?
3. Which is more important, that the president gets to do and say whatever he feels like with impunity or that he stand up for what the constitution say in its entirety?
4. Should the Unites States be allowed to abduct, torture, and kill people or should we uphold the treaties to which we are signatories and the United States Constitution?
5. Is the United States a Christian Fascist theocracy or a representative democracy?
If they answer the former to any of these questions, tell them to go back and read the constitution and the bill of rights, the one they swear an oath to uphold and defend.
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.
Then tell them to do their job, and vote to impeach George Bush and Richard Cheney because they are both domestic enemies of the US Constitution.
Also note that although the constitution is the fundamental law of the United States to which all others are subordinate, the constitution makes no reference to the flag. Even though the flag pre-dates the constitution the writers did not see fit to protect it. Like all The flag ultimately means and guarantees nothing. That is the job of the constitution. Defend the Constitution and the laws of this land, for that is ultimately the only thing that makes it special.
