“Freedom has a taste to those who fight and almost die, that the protected will never know.”

Since Obama took his oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, he has not only battered the Constitution, but has assaulted America’s armed forces who love America and her laws so much that they lay down their lives to defend her freedoms.
How does Obama repay them? He cuts their funding, does nothing when hundreds of thousands of our veterans are still awaiting medical benefits, ignores the wishes of the military branches who desired to keep Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell in place, sues states such as Ohio to block military votes, complains about taking pictures with our soldiers and calls the killing of four Americans in Libya (two of them former Navy SEALs) a “bump in the road.”
Obama and his unlawful bureaucrats continue their bald-faced assaults, using less than 1.7 percent of the population to attack America’s blood-bought freedoms at every turn – and they are using taxpayer money to do so.
How does a country with a population of roughly 312,780,968 million correctly respond?
Look to our forefathers:
“That to secure these rights (derived from our Creator), Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, – That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

Love or hate him, Abraham Lincoln was spot on when he said, “We the people are the rightful masters … not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.”
When doing high school assemblies all across the country I will ask the students in the assembly how many know their Constitution. Many begin to laugh in sheer ignorance. I tell them that if they do not know their rights, they don’t have any rights. I then begin to show them the price paid for our freedoms by our founders and veterans who fought, bled and died to magnify the Constitution they previously laughed at not knowing.
I then ask them how many have grandparents, uncles, aunts, cousins, brothers and sisters who have fought or are currently fighting for our freedom. About 85 percent of them do, and it hits home with the students. The entire room is immediately captivated with a new love and respect for America and the laws of our republic.
Through the knowledge of the Bible and our Constitution, they also begin to see through the destructive, disrespectful and illegal actions of the current administration.
Just how destructive, disrespectful and illegal? Watch for yourself:
