I am now 66 years old, born on January 7, 1950. Every presidential election held in my lifetime has violated the Constitution. Now, before some of you get your panties in a wad let me quote directly from our founding document. This is copied exactly as it is written in the document, including capital letters and punctuations where I found them.
Article II Section 1 Paragraph 3 states: “…And they shall make a List of all of the Persons voted for, and of the Number of Votes for each; which List they shall sign and certify, and transmit sealed to the Seat of the Government of the United States, directed to the President of the Senate. The President of the Senate shall, in the Presence of the Senate and House of Representatives, open all the Certificates, and the Votes shall then be counted. The Person having the Greatest Number of Votes shall be the President, if such Number be a Majority of the whole Number of Electors appointed; and if there be more than one who have such a Majority, and have an equal Number of Votes then the House of Representatives shall immediately chuse by Ballot one of them for President; and if no Person have a Majority, then from the five highest on the List the said House shall in like manner chuse the President. But in chusing the President, the Vote shall be taken by States, The Representation from each State having one Vote; A quorum for this purpose shall consist of a Member or Members from two thirds of the States, and a Majority of all the States shall be necessary to a Choice. In every Case, after the Choice of the President, the Person having the greatest Number of Votes of the Electors shall be the Vice President.”… It goes on to say that a tie will be resolved by the Senate in the same manner as the President is chosen. (I guess the founders didn’t know there were only 2 choices, a democrat and a republican)
The political parties, once established, didn’t like this so they modified it a bit with Amendment XII but didn’t change that much. I don’t see where the party-line ticket use was called for anywhere nor that only party candidates are allowed on ballots. They do this to shut We the People out of the process except for having their hand-picked party lemming as a choice, which isn’t a real choice in most cases. I believe this is why Trump folded and agreed to support the GOP nominee; he knew they would keep him off the ballot in enough states to make an independent run unfeasible.
Paragraph 5 states that only a natural born citizen or a citizen at the time of the adoption of the Constitution shall be eligible to be President, rendering Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio ineligible. A Supreme Court decision, Minor vs. Happersett in 1875, defined a natural born citizen as one born of parents who are both citizens at the time of birth of the candidate. Rubio and Cruz aren’t eligible because their parents weren’t citizens when they were born. Cruz’s mother was but his father was a citizen of Cuba. I like Ted Cruz because I believe him to be an honorable man who would govern rather than rule but he isn’t eligible and therefore won’t get my support nor my vote. Are we to toss the Constitution out because liberals do?
In my lifetime every presidential election has been held with a Pres/Vice-Pres ticket, a take it or leave it option that does not comply with the Constitution. This is how we got fuhrer obama, along with the GOP running to lose. Dole, McCain, and Romney were all candidates the GOP knew were hopelessly inept and unacceptable to patriots and that is why the establishment picked them then ran campaigns designed to elect socialist demokrats. The GOP is part of the NEW WORLD ORDER pushing the one world government from the United Nations. I believe we will see the same tactics in November, if obama actually allows an election but I don’t expect that to happen.. I expect to see martial law long before November and obama declaring himself “ruler for life”. We the People have been betrayed by those who promise to protect us then violate their promises and their oath of office immediately because they know they can get away with it. We need a mass hanging in Washington D. C. (De Cesspool) if we are to regain control of the federal dictatorship and return it to what our founders left us. Some people are championing a COS but I believe that is a pipe dream as I wrote previously. Many people jumped on me without taking time to either read the entire article or were not capable of comprehending my concerns despite the fact that I laid out my reasoning very clearly. One even called me a low information liberal, which is beyond absurd.
As long as the NEW WORLD ORDER SOCIALIST PARTY controls America through their donkey and elephant wings we will never again see liberty. The founders opposed political parties because they foresaw today happening, the country controlled by a limited group of self-serving despots and shutting citizens out of having any meaningful voice in government. Those who insist we vote for republicans to keep democrats out haven’t been paying attention to the gop treachery, or are too stupid to see how the gop is enslaving them by giving the socialist demokrats everything they want. Just a few days ago hillary clinton praised Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell for surrendering to barak obama with the “omnibus bill” that finances every despotic act obama has written edicts for. Of course, she didn’t use those exact words but she is obviously elated that the GOP is helping them destroy the nation. One very good suggestion made in response to my article about the Article V convention of states is to reinstitute Citizen Grand Juries in every county in the nation. These panels are independent of judicial interference and are truly the will of the people. That was the best suggestion I saw. This nation needs desperately to do two things: 1) Get back to honoring God in all aspects of both private and public life, and 2) Get back to following the Constitution, the road map to greatness given to us by God and our Founding Fathers.
I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.
