America At Risk

The recent Supreme Court decision to uphold the Second Amendment to the Constitution (enumerating the right of citizens to keep and bear arms) is a victory for freedom and the American way of life.  However, it was a close victory – too close.  The fact that the court was split five-to-four on the decision should cause every American citizen to tremble, and wake us up to the overwhelming importance of the next Presidential election.  It is not only the Second Amendment that is at risk, but the entire Constitution. 

 

There is a strong chance that the next President will likely appoint the next round of Supreme Court justices, as some of the current sitting justices are likely to retire in the next few years.  The two oldest members of the court are John Paul Stevens (88), and Ruth Bader Ginsburg (75).  With the right President, this can be a very good thing.  With the wrong President, it may be disastrous.  If Barak Obama is elected, there is no doubt that he will appoint liberal judges who will treat the Constitution as a “living document” that has no fixed meaning or application; consult international courts and laws for guidance as they adjudicate American law; and continually overstep their strictly judicial responsibilities to legislate from the bench and interfere with the political process.  This may spell the end of America as we know it.

 

John McCain has promised that, if elected, he would follow President Bush’s model in choosing Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. and Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. (L.A. Times, May 19, 2008).  These are justices who, along with Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas, are committed to upholding the spirit and principles of the founding fathers.  Such justices are needed on the court to guide our country by the rule of law, rather than by the arbitrary, fluid and subjective pursuit of so-called social justice, as Obama would have it.

 

As stated by the attorney who defended the Second Amendment before the court, this is not the end of the matter, but merely the end of the beginning.  There will be more lawsuits challenging the Second Amendment and other long-held American rights and liberties, and we must not give up the fight to preserve our way of life.  A vote for John McCain for President is a vote for a conservative Supreme Court and to preserve the American way of life.  God bless America.

Supreme Court Disaster

The decision of the U.S. Supreme Court that foreign terrorism suspects held at Guantanamo Bay have rights under the U.S. Constitution to challenge their detention in U.S. civilian courts is a disaster for our nation, and highlights the extreme importance of electing a President who will appoint strict Constitutionalist judges to the Supreme Court as current liberal judges retire in the next few years (hopefully).  Our best choice at this time is Senator John McCain.

Granting foreign terror suspects Constituional rights within civilian courts is exactly what the terrorists have been hoping for.  They will use our convoluted legal system against us, costing millions of taxpayer dollars, decades of court time in endless trials and appeals, and eventually be set free to continue their murderous Islamo-fascist assault on the free world.  In the meantime, they’ll be enjoying free room and board in our prison system, which is a posh existence compared to their armpit countries of origin that are keepin’ it real, 7th-century-style, until the return of Mohamed.  (Thanks for the phrase, Jaime.) 

When will Americans wake up and realize that terrorism isn’t about lack of opportunities, third-world poverty, social justice, or even so-called American imperialism?  It’s about world domination and the convert-or-die madness of radical Islamists.  They don’t want to negotiate; they want to exterminate.

Barak Hussein Obama thinks his warm heart and smooth words will salve the hatred of radical Islam.  Did words help Daniel Pearl?  Should his murderers and their comrades be granted the luxury of trial in American civil courts?  Absolutely not.  Stop the lunacy of the Supreme Court by electing John McCain and pressing him to appoint truly conservative judges throughout the federal court system.
