Paul Craig Roberts: Patriotism is Allegiance To The Constitution, Not Government

"American patriots, who feel that they should be on “their” government’s side regardless of the facts, would do well to remember what true patriotism is. For Americans, patriotism has always meant allegiance to the Constitution, not to the government. The oath is to defend the Constitution against enemies domestic and foreign. The Bush and Obama regimes have proven themselves to be the Constitution’s worst enemies. It is not possible for a true patriot to support a government that destroys the Constitution. The United States is the Constitution. Our country is not the Obama regime, the Bush regime, or some other administration. Our country is the Constitution. The Constitution is our country..."

Another work of art by PCR. He and Gerald Celente are always telling it like it is.

This is the message for right NOW in the USA!

Paul Craig Roberst continues to outdo himself with each article he presents. This one, with clips from "V for Vendetta" as support for his message, left goosebumps all over.

Thank you for posting. A must read and must be shared. Done!

Whether the desire for liberty exists in America remains to be seen. If Americans can overcome their gullibility, their lifelong brainwashing, their propensity to believe every lie that “their” government tells them, and if Americans can escape the Matrix in which they live, they can reestablish the morality, justice, peace, freedom, and liberty that “their” government has taken from them. It is not impossible for Americans to again stand with uplifted heads. They only have to recognize that “their” government is the enemy of truth, justice, human rights and life itself.

Can mere ordinary Americans triumph over the evil that is “their” government without the aid of a superhero? If ideas are strong enough and Americans can comprehend them, good can prevail over the evil that is concentrated in Washington. What stands between the American people and their comprehension of evil is their gullibility.

If you, an American, living in superpower America lack the courage to stand up to the evil that is “your” government, perhaps the courage of Edward Snowden, Bradley Manning, Julian Assange, and tiny Ecuador will give you heart.

Amazing! I was fixing to post this article...

but noticed it had already been posted. Ironically I had selected almost the exact words from the article that the OP selected to use as the title. Below is what I was going to use as the title. Excellent article by PCR!
