AMAC – Romney’s Lesson to the Supreme Court

BOHEMIA, NY October 3 –

With the words of the Constitution and Declaration of Independence serving as his background, and with the  people of America as his audience, Mitt Romney not only demonstrated his potential as our next President but  gave a lesson to the Supreme Court.

During the first Presidential Debate he spoke with certain eloquence of his vision of the rightful place of the Federal Government. He explained on a national stage the proper role of a central government in a republic, where the states retain certain rights and powers,  sharply contrasting his views with those of President Obama’s.

We witnessed a Great Debate.

Listening to Governor Romney we heard echoes of our Founding Fathers as they laid out the proposition that the many states in our union were equal, and in the discharges of some powers superior, to the Federal governing authority.

The Tenth Amendment, Romney reminded us, does not endow the United States Government with complete control of our lives, rather it simply says,

“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people”

In doing so, Romney stood up to the relatively recent trend of decisions by the Supreme Court, that the Congress and the President have authority that exceeds the rights of the States, and indeed the rights of the individual citizen.

We should expect from his Presidency, less taxes, smaller government operating more efficiently in its duties, but most important  – recognition of our individual rights as endowed to us by our Creator.

President Obama did not seem to be able to grasp the point of what Romney was saying, nor was he able to respond to the arguments the Governor laid out.

Based on the results of the flash polls, the people have welcomed what Mitt Romney is saying. We can only hope the Justices of the Supreme Court will listen.

I just printed out the application form for AMAC. I am so happy that I heard about the organization on Laura Ingraham’s radio show yesterday while in my car. I’m going for the five-year plan. I have been enraged by the socialist leaning antics of the AARP as they claimed to speak for me. My membership with AARP ends in December. Good riddance AARP.

If one were to “follow the money” one might just find that in both cases the money is from almost exactly the same sources, which are all pretty much thinly disguised fronts for the Tri-lateral commission, Haliburton Corp., and George freakin’ Soros.
They hve just hedged their bets this time because they know the majority of Americans are dissatisfied with The current POTUS. Solution: back both of them and get the same results no matter who wins.
The republican national committee stifled and silenced the true winner of the nomination and the only candidate who could actually beat Obama without simply replacing him with a Christian version of the same old NWO song.

P.S.S.—Please, forgive my mistyping in my first comment. Of course, I meant to say that Mitt Romney will turn this “nation” around into the correct direction,” if he is elected,” and I believe he will be elected, because he has right approach. And AMAC also has the right approach.

No problem, Ron, we knew what you meant. But maybe you hit on something: there are too many people in this country whose “gimme, gimme” natures need turning in the right direction, as well.

Or gimme gimme a job that is not located in China?

No, more like gimme gimme someone else’s hard-earned wealth because I’m too lazy or proud to do what it takes to earn my own.

P.S.—-I want to add to my last comment. I probably will become a member of your organization soon. AMAC certainly has the right motives, aims, and ideals.

I am not a member, but I thank God that your organization exists. Your organization is a breath of fresh air. Mitt Romney certainly will turn this nature around into the correct direction.

As long as both candidates insist that the federal government is the proper supplier of health care, that bailing out failing companies is the proper use of taxpayer funds and that “planting democracy” around the world is a proper use of American lives, the choice seems pretty bleak.

Perhaps my memory is failing me in my old age, Jim, but I do not recall Governor Romney ever saying that the FEDERAL government is the proper supplier of health care, or that bailing out failing companies is the proper use of taxpayer funds, or that planting democracy around the world is a proper use of American lives.

Yes, there’s no doubt that truth and command of the facts will win over demagoguery every time! But for those who still insist on voting for style and image, rather than for substance, what is the image imprinted in our minds during last night’s debate? It’s one of a presidential and respectful challenger forcefully pointing out the truth about the president’s failed term in office, while all the incumbent could do was hang his head in shame!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
