“I do solemnly swear 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.” – Presidential Oath of Office in its entirety
“Stop throwing the Constitution in my face! It’s just a goddamn piece of paper!” – George W. Bush, (so help us God)
“Go f*** yourselves, America.” – U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Henry Paulson (paraphrased)
“Amen, Mr. Secretary!” -Barney Frank (shockingly not a retard…according to standard definitions), and Christopher Dodd (aka, Oppressive Slimeball)
The unwritten American law: when any financial institution makes any bad loan anywhere, that institution is not accountable for its error: the American taxpayer is. Actually, for the sake of preserving the market (and when they say “preserving”, they mean “undermining”, the American taxpayer will now prop up any large corporation, assuming it is a complete and total failure. GM, Ford, Bear Stearns, Lehman Brothers, IndyMac, AIG, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and every other non-competitive corporate loser: do not worry, because the United States no longer believes in capitalism. Therefore you cannot fail; in fact, as a reward for your magnificently unsuccessful business models, you get free money from the American taxpayer. The D.C. mafia are perfectly happy to crap all over the average American in order to sustain a politically friendly (albeit criminal) banking system. What’s the old saying about America’s hospitable nature? Give me your swindling, your greedy, your corporate jet-flying masses?
Guess what, America? Henry Paulson is officially above the law. $700,000,000,000 is not nearly enough; $2,000,000,000,000 is far from “enough” for the socialist journey upon which your government now embarks. There will be more to pay, more to print, more to steal from your labor. This new socialism is insatiable.
America does not have leaders anymore. It has rulers. It has owners. They rule you, they own you, they have spent over a century subverting the supposedly binding agreement between you and them called the U.S. Constitution, and they have the power–through formal taxes and inflation–to take every last real dollar you ever saved, and they will, because their cars aren’t fast enough, their jets aren’t new enough, their diamonds aren’t big enough, and they know you are a bunch of suckers who still think the Presidential election matters. Wake up and read the Constitution. You’re getting royally screwed, America, and by a creature many of you still consider friendly: the federal government. This President, this Congress, these judges and bureaucrats, these candidates–the agents of change–are, for the most part, your masters and your enemies, and if you let them, they will strip you of everything but your soul.
When you ask why or how this could happen–how the freest modern society could fall so far, and become economically depressed and politically oppressed–they will respond as they do now, explaining that they are not accountable, but you are–and sadly, in a way, they will be right. The further their explanation strays from the truth, the more oppressive they will become, the more dangerous dissent will become to them. The Constitutionalist will take on the foster name “terrorist”. The reflective person will be legally termed the dangerous person; the truthful person: an enemy of the state. As a wise man once said, “truth is treason in the empire of lies.”
