On May First, 2012, President Barack Obama issued his Loyalty Day Proclamation from the White House, and I thought I’d shine some light on this real piece of work, digitally located at http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2012/05/01/presidential-proclamation-loyalty-day-2012
More than two centuries ago, our Founders laid out a charter that assured the rule of law and the rights of man. Through times of tranquility and the throes of change, the Constitution has always guided our course toward fulfilling that most noble promise that all are equal, all are free, and all deserve the chance to pursue their full measure of happiness. America has carried on not only for the skill or vision of history’s celebrated figures, but also for the generations who have remained faithful to the ideals of our forebears and true to our founding documents. On Loyalty Day, we reflect on that proud heritage and press on in the long journey toward prosperity for all.
Really? These founders did not lay a law assuring the rights of man from the beginning. Since this newly formed government assumed responsibility for debts to the English, it needed to raise money, and thus it taxed whiskey. When the tax was protested, good ol’ boy Washington arranged for fifteen thousand militia to quell the rebellion. This country began with taxation backed by the threat of death. Because many poor western folk used whiskey as a form of currency, this was essentially an income tax that easterners didn’t have to pay. On moral grounds, theft is wrong, no matter who the victim is, nor what claims, legal and otherwise, the thief claims. The prosperity for all, is really just the prosperity of all claimed and taken by the few.
… On Loyalty Day, we rededicate ourselves to the common good, to the cornerstones of liberty, equality, and justice, and to the unending pursuit of a more perfect Union.
This is where he spills the beans. Our Declaration, proclaimed the rights of all to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Since politicians LOVE to forget the word ‘Republic’ (excepting in the Pledge of Allegiance and there only symbolically ) and stress that we are the bringers of DEMOCRACY to the world. Democracy enforced by the blatant show of military might the world over. Democracy is, of course, naught but mob rule. When the state uses the words democracy and equality, we should remember the words of George Orwell in his fable, Animal Farm, “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.”
Since one of these stated goals is the “unending pursuit of a more perfect Union”, it stands to reason that more and more power will be consolidated into the hands of the Federal Government. Government, despite its possible honorable intentions and beginning, is the wielder of absolute power, and it corrupts absolutely.
… In order to recognize the American spirit of loyalty and the sacrifices that so many have made for our Nation, the Congress, by Public Law 85-529 as amended, has designated May 1 of each year as “Loyalty Day.” On this day, let us reaffirm our allegiance to the United States of America, our Constitution, and our founding values.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim May 1, 2012, as Loyalty Day. This Loyalty Day, I call upon all the people of the United States to join in support of this national observance, whether by displaying the flag of the United States or pledging allegiance to the Republic for which it stands.
Despite the claim of George Bush stating the Constitution is just a “… piece of paper”, all politicians deep down must respect the Constitution. Crazy!, you say? The Constitution, by being the founding document of this government, gives these murderous thieves the ‘right’ to rule over us. The answer isn’t another violent and bloody revolution, but a peaceful protest to the ‘defenders of force’ and real education of our youth until it fades away just as circumcision, child marriage, and slavery have and are.
This government was birthed as crippled as could be, and yet, it disposed of its crutches, waxed strong, oppressed peoples within and without, and now is the ultimate playground bully and the purest expression of organized crime. The entire world sees it. The amazing thing is that its own people are barely cognizant of how enslaved they are.
By declaring Loyalty Day, what Obama is really asking, is for Americans to pull a little more of constitutional rag over our eyes and flag gag us a bit deeper, as we raise our hands for heavier chains to praise the all powerful state and thank it for all the freedoms that it graciously continues to give us. True freedom is Loyalty free.
