Fundamental Change by Joe Keck

When Barack Obama ran for President, he said he was going to “fundamentally change” this country. Let’s looks at the first word of such a drastic declaration.

Fundamental: forming a necessary base or core; of central importance; affecting or relating to the essential nature of something or the crucial point about an issue; so basic as to be hard to alter, resolve, or overcome.

Change the necessary base or core? Change that which is of central importance? Change what is affecting or relating to the essential nature of America or the crucial point about our country?

Yes, Mr. President, given our Constitution and how this nation was established, it is hard to alter, resolve, or overcome, try as you and the Liberals might.

Our Founding Documents are basically a list of Government restrictions. Obama said the Constitution has in their texts things the Government can’t do to the people, but failed to put in the things the Government should do for the people. Here’s the quote :

Says what the federal government can’t do to you, but doesn’t say what the federal government or state government must do on your behalf

The reason for that, Mr. President, is because the Founders had been living under a government that did indeed have a list of things it “must do” for the people.

And that’s precisely why they left them out.

Madison, Franklin, Hancock, and all the other signers got together, hashed back and forth, agued and pained over each little line, and decided that the words penned in these almost divine Documents were the most noble and trustworthy words they could lay down for the rest of us to follow.

Now, a little over two hundred years later, we have a man who fought long and hard to make it legal for a hospital to let a new-born baby die of exposure on a gurney if he was the result of an unsuccessful abortion, telling us that the Founders got it wrong.

I mean, can we really see George Washington nodding his head in agreement with the President as he says that the Catholic Church should be forced by the State to hand out contraceptives?

Would Patrick Henry, William Penn, John Jay, or anyone else involved in the birth of our great nation stand up and applaud Obama for mocking those of us who “Cling to our God and guns” to a crowd of cheering pro-abortionist tax-hikers

Would Benjamin Franklin – or anyone in that hallowed chamber two centuries ago – smile and say, “Oh yeah, high fiver on that one, Barack,” when he details the virtues of allowing a kicking, squalling baby to cry and shiver on a metal table, frantically waving his little arms in terror until he finally stops breathing?

Our Founders didn’t want fundamental change. They wanted Fundamental Principals. Ones that would last until the return of our Lord, Jesus Christ (would atheists and agnostics put, “with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence” or “Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God” or “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights” into The Declaration of Independence?).

For Heaven’s sake, today, the atheists and anti-Christian secularists even fight against a child praying in school!

Yes, Obama is trying to “fundamentally change” this country. However, with the use of decent American patriots, God has decided to thwart his endeavors.

Well, mostly.

Barack Obama has said, “This is no longer a Christian nation.” Although I would agree with him on that in a sense, my acquiescence to such a claim is born out of lamentation and regret. I believe his origination of the statement was born out of victorious delight.

We need to stop Obama and the Liberals from their efforts to transform this country into a secular, abortion on demand, Humanistic, hedonistic, socialist nation.

On election day, we can do just that.

If we don’t, those of us who believe in freedom from State tyranny and centralized oppression will have our fundamental principals fundamentally destroyed.

The Framers of the Constitution were principled men. And whether they were Christians, Deists, Humanists, or atheists, they knew not of murdering babies in the womb, they knew not of partial-birth abortion, they knew not of banning school prayer, they knew not of 50 percent tax burdens on the people for government spending programs.

They knew of Providence. They knew of the Divine gift that was to be the United States of America. They knew of God, and family, and of country. They knew of freedom and what that will mean for them, their children, and generations beyond.

Let’s fundamentally change the Congress and the Whitehouse this November and re-acquire those principals that our Founding Fathers risked so much to establish on this land.

Yes, Mr. President, we want to fundamentally change America.

We want to fundamentally change it back!
