    Preamble to the US Constitution:

    We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

    We the People.

    The founders wanted to make sure that American Citizens understood that the power of this country doesn't come from God. Doesn't come from a "king". Doesn't come from the "military". It comes from "We the People".

    "We the People" are who made this country.


    A few comments about that.


    The Supreme Court Under Justice Roberts made it, "We the People and Corporations". Corporations are NOT citizens. No where in the constitution does it say they are. No one ever said they were, until now.


    Obama is the President. He was elected by the majority of "We the People". I watched two leaders of the Tea Party movement on Chris Mathews. They will be on again tonight for anyone who wants to watch. Both leaders complained that their rights were being taken away. Chris said, "You can live anywhere you want, do anything you want, say anything you want. Which right has been taken?" One guy complained that he wasn't falling for "fancy left wing rhetoric" and refused to answer. The other guy said that his right to carry a gun in front of the White House has been taken. That's it. That's the rights they've lost.

    Chris said, "What do you want to carry? A machine gun?" and both guys said, "Yes".


    No one's right have been taken.

    No one's guns have been threatened.

    More than 1/3rd of the stimulus package was "tax cuts".

    No one's taxes have been raised.

    The federal government is not going to "invade".

    No one is going to jail over healthcare.

    Instead of working within "We the People", the wacky white wing is threatening civil disobedience against the duly elected government of the United States made up of "We the People". If they have a different take on the issues, where are their solutions?
