Broken oaths

The elected president of the United States of America is fully unfit for the job the people selected him to do. He has, himself, said that the Constitution--the one he swore to uphold and protect--was a fundamentally flawed document.

Can't argue with him, there. It did permit for the slow takeover of the federal government by enemies of the United States that talked a good line.

He has not done anything to protect us from our enemies, either foreign or domestic. In fact, I'd say he and his cronies are our biggest domestic enemies.

And now, he's decided that it's not in our best interest to set up the missile shield that we'd negotiated to base in Poland, Czechoslovakia, and the Ukraine. That it is, in fact, best that we not pursue long-range missile defense, and instead focus on short- and mid-range missile defense.

To put the cherry on top of this heinously bad decision (or perhaps to point up why he made it), he announced this on the seventieth anniversary of Russia's invasion of Poland.

He has set us up to be nuked by our sworn enemies in the Middle East, and for Russia to reclaim the sphere of influence that it once had. He has made this country, and every citizen in it, fundamentally less safe.

Vladimir Putin is laughing. So is Mahmoud Ahmadinajad.

Centuries ago, such oathbreaking would have been met with the people evicting the leader from power by any means necessary. That tradition, like many others, was eliminated by the French.

  2. You're right. This is just a case of oathbreaking. In Anglo-Saxon (pre-1000 A.D.) Britain, this would have resulted in him being deposed, excommunicated, and depending on the seriousness of the act, likely beheaded.

    It's a pity the Norman French brought European culture with them when they invaded. Much of the Magna Carta was already in practice with the Anglo-Saxons, and much more equality between sexes and classes. Specifically, responsibilities between classes went BOTH WAYS.

    Fuckin' frogs.
