The Constitution Isn't Fundamentally Flawed

"From each according to his abilities to each according to his needs."
Karl Marx

An Obama radio interview from 2001 has been released and was all the buzz today. I've embedded it below in case you haven't had a chance to hear it yet.

I believe Obama to have a socialist agenda he wants to take to the White House and that he is not willing to be honest about it while on the campaign stump. This interview is extremely telling and backs up his recent remark to Joe the plumber regarding "redistribution of wealth."

According to Obama, the Supreme Court and civil rights movement failed because they did not try to impose socialism on the country in the name of “economic justice.”

Here is an excerpt of Obama’s 2001 interview:

“…Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth and the more basic issues of political and economic justice in this society. And to that extent, as radical as I think people tried to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn’t that radical. It didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers and the Constitution…

“…One of the tragedies of the civil rights movement, was because the civil rights movement became so court focused, I think there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalitions of power through which you bring about redistributive change, and in some ways we still suffer from that.”

Obama also suggests that the Constitution was “fundamentally flawed” for imposing restrictions on the power of government, saying, “The Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. [It] Says what the states can’t do to you. [It] Says what the federal government can’t do to you, but doesn’t say what the federal government or state government must do on your behalf.”

Gary Bauer noted in his newsletter today: That is because the Founding Fathers were trying to protect the people from the creation of an authoritarian police state. They did not want to create “a government big enough to give you everything you want, because such a government would be big enough to take away everything you have.”

This is a short piece and worth listening to in full if you haven't already heard it.

Today I stumbled across a blog - I don't the author.

Please hear me ... I don't really care if Obama or all his followers thinks he is the Messiah. BUT, the guy on this blog has done a very comprehensive look at how this phenomenon has come about. He has lots of video (I didn't watch it all) and thoughts that I found intriguing and some (I'm warning you) is offensive. You can see it here in its entirety if you are so inclined.

One of the videos I did watch is embedded below. It is about 7 minutes long and it dates back to June 11, 2008. In it the Libyan leader Muammar el-Qaddafi calls Obama a muslim and then goes on to say he hopes he is lying to get elected now that Obama is saying he is a Christian .

Mind you, I realize this guy is ranting in the usual nutty Islamic leader fashion. Still, I believe his words are telling in several ways. For one there is such a stark contrast between the type of media that is out there contrasting the two men running for the office of President of the United States. I don't think there is one piece of video anywhere, in any form, with all kinds of evidences put together that supports the fact that John McCain is 'possibly' a closet Muslim, or hints that he might not like our great country, or that he has all manner of terrorists associations. No there isn't a campaign to try to 'unmask' John McCain. Why? Because there isn't anything to hide. He is a man of character with a record that has been fully explored for YEARS!

How odd is it that we have to resort to blog writers to expose the truth about a man who spent a mere 143 days in Congress before beginning his run for the Presidency?

This is eerie stuff!

Obama's true feelings on the Constitution are extremely disturbing. Of course his ideology lead us to believe he did not value our most sacred document, but to hear it from his own mouth that our founders got it wrong is sickening. To hear him harp on redistribution is proof that his ideology is steeped in Marxism.

It continues to astound me that people are buying his lies, and that he will not tax THEM more. It continues to astound me that more and more people are not bothered by rhetoric of redistribution and the trampling of our sacred Constition. It amazes me that people do not understand that the reason we have been the most prosperous nation on earth is due wholly and completely to the founding principles laid forth by our founders in the CONSTITUTION.
