While other politicians fiddle, Ron Paul tries to stop burning of the ConstitutionSubmitted by legalizeliberty on Tue, 05/22/2012 - 10:28
In the 2008 Presidential campaign, candidate Barack Obama condemned the rights-robbing USA Patriot Act and promised to curtail the law’s most onerous privisions, including the unlimited detentions of Americans — something that openly violated the Constitution.
The Patriot Act, crafted by President George W. Bush‘s bible-thumping attorney general John Ashcroft and rushed into law by a shell-shocked Congress, ignores many freedoms supposedly protected by the Constitution.
As President, Obama not only forgot his campaign promises about the Patriot Act but supported measures to expand the law to further violate the rights of American citizens.
That is reason enough to kick his lying ass out of the public housing he occupies at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
However, the only other choice that will be on the Presidential ballot in most states will be Mitt Romney, who supports the Patriot Act.
The only candidate in this year’s race who opposed the Patriot Act is Libertarian/GOP Texas Congressman Ron Paul, who has long opposed the law for what it is: A flagrant violation of the Constitution.
