Prove It

There used to be a meme in Christian circles that went like this: "If you were on trial for being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you?"

It was a kind of Orwellian twist on the idea of innocent until proven guilty.

I would like to re-introduce this idea before tonight's debate.

Instead of leveling all sorts of accurate appellations at Obama's character and activities, only to have him deny, deny, and lie, let's turn the tables a bit and ask Obama only one question...

"If you were on trial for being an American, would there be enough evidence to convict you?"

Oh yes, I know. How quaint, the idea of "American" in all of its zenophobic, anti-intellectual, racist connotations applied by the media and the Left.

Because I do question his patriotism. And if that's not allowed, then I question his support of the Constitution and Amendments.

If he and his followers do not support these, then I have no country in common with them. How can the Light embrace the benighted goals of Communism?

I join VodkaPundit, DailyPundit, GuyK, Dogette, Vman, Pamibe, and a host of others who will, at the last, refuse to sit idly by while Freedom erodes.

Put my name on your list, Communist Nanny-Staters, it's not too early.

Obama will not be my President. Nor will Hillary "for the common good" Clinton. Nor will anyone of any skin color or sex that embraces the deconstruction of Capitalism and Freedom as their political platform.

We have to have a baseline of agreement between our political Left and Right. When you march off the pages of the Constitution and into the Marxist handbook, we have no common ground. I don't care if 60% of the people decide Communism is the way to go, I will never cede my Human Right to be free from tyranny and oppression -- and that includes economic oppression.

If Obama is elected and cannot prove himself to be an American, if he threatens the Constitution instead of upholding it, he will not find a "my fellow Americans" sort of person in me.

(Unless, you know, he can swing me a sweet deal on a home like he got. That's what I'd call equality of access! ...)

Arthur and I have already had the talk about what happens when they come to take our guns. That might very be when we kick off. But what a way to go...

The USA has been through a lot and hung together. I'd hate to think a community organizer could break us up. However, the fissures are starting to run pretty deep.

Did you ever see that movie "Signs" with Mel Gibson and Joaquin Phoenix? The line is "Swing away, Merrill." That's how I feel.

I intend to treat President Obama exactly like the left treated Bush: I'll wear "Not My President" T-shirts. I'll call him a war criminal. I'll fantasize in print about assassinating him. I'll Photoshop him as a monkey. I'll call him a fucking moron. I'll mock his word stumbles.

Hey, I didn't make the rules. I'm just following the beautifully crafted blueprint the leftists gave me.

Tender Mercies, Vman, to only give as good as one gets.

I should like to do all those things V-Man said, and also daydream about how funny it would be to fling burning bags of caca onto the White House (it'll still be called that, right?) lawn.

This is all a very bad dream, right? Our future feels so skeevy.

(I love when V-Man speaks so viscerally. Inspiring!)

Look, I never figured on croaking in bed..my ambition was to live to be 99 years old and get shot by a jealous husband while climbing out a second story window...but with my boots on!

And if Obama makes the grab I figure he is gonna make for the constitution
I have sworn to defend against all enemies..foreign AND DOMESTIC I don't reckon I'll have any problem croak with my boots on if that is what it takes to be free.

You see, Obama comes from a long line of people who did not understand that one has to fight for freedom and fight to keep it! We have a choice...we can live as slaves as much of the world is living or we can fight to remain free. And for one I had rather die as a free man than live as a slave to any man. And there are millions more who figure the same way...and we are Obama and the socialists worst nightmare...typical white people who cling to our guns and religion.

Well said, Joan!
At least for once the following phrase will be true: if Obama wins it will only be because ObamACORN stole the election.

I personally shall be more than happy to ridicule dumbo at every opportunity.

If he wins. Okay, actually I'll still ridicule him even if he don't win.
I'm an equal opportunity ridicular of idiot politicians. Especially the donks.
