How Control Of Education And The Media Allow Obama To Lie About Meaning Of Constitution
This story is a clear example of how an ignorant population works to the benefit of the ruling elite:
“If we continue to set a precedent in which a president … is in a situation in which each time the United States is called upon to pay its bills, the other party can simply sit there and say, ‘Well, we’re not going to put – pay the bills unless you give us … what we want,’ that changes the constitutional structure of this government entirely,” Obama said.
I am not going to mix words here: President Obama is lying about the Constitution. Normally, logic and decency would dictate that I allow for the possibility that Obama is just mistaken. However, in this case, Obama and his spokespersons have told us he is a ‘Constitutional scholar’ who has taught the Constitution. Therefore, I must assume he knows better. This leaves one option: he is lying to the American people.
The problem of partisanship, which was created by the rise of a two-Party system, is not addressed by the Constitution. However, Party politics was not new to our founders, yet the Constitution clearly leaves the power to tax and spend to Congress, not the President. Thus, we can conclude that the founders were perfectly aware that a minority Party could hold up the spending desired by the majority Party so long as they had the votes to do so in either House of Congress. If one bothers to read what our founders had to say on this issue, one will find this was by design! This is exactly what the founders intended; therefore, Obama is lying about the intent of the Constitution.
The founders wanted this ability to ‘check’ the power of a majority Party. They saw it as one of the ‘checks and balances’ in our Constitution. If Obama is correct, and Congress was intended to just rubber stamp whatever the President wants, the founders not only would have given the power of the purse to the President, they would have set our government up as a monarchy or dictatorship. But the founders didn’t do that. They designed our Constitution to hold off the rise of tyranny as long as possible, and Progressives – like Obama – know this. This is why Progressives have been working to undermine these protective checks and balances since their movement first arose.
Here is why knowing and understanding history is important. If you do not know that what I just explained is exactly what the founders wanted; if you do not understand why they designed the Constitution to include these checks and balances; then you are much more likely to accept Obama’s lie, which then gives him the political power to subvert the Constitution. But, if you do know the founders wanted these checks and balances, and you understand why, then you immediately know that Obama is lying and you reject his argument and fight his agenda, which protects individual rights and liberty. Indoctrination is what makes this sort of deception possible; education is the defense against it.
[Are you starting to see why the Progressives see control of our education system, our media and direct democracy as essential to the realization of their goal of centralized, authoritarian government?]
