America was founded with three separate branches of government to protect the Rule of Law. The most basic level of law in America is the U.S. Constitution. It establishes which rights the government is charged to protect. The Constitution is the written representation of enduring and agreed upon truths, and as such we call it law. The only alternative is the Rule of Man.
We should all remember that the issue of Natural Born Citizenship, as established in The U.S. Constitution and upheld by 3 supreme court cases and Senate Resolution 511, is about The Rule of Law.
Many of us allow ourselves to believe that the Obama eligibility issue is not going to be settled. However, it is a battle worth fighting. If The Rule of Law does not apply to our leaders, if they are above the law, America is over and we are no longer free.
When the Roman Republic fell, Romans did not accept the truth. Historians say that for at least 100 years, many Romans held to the belief that the Republic still lived. After the complete collapse of the Roman Empire a few hundred years later, many Romans were slaughtered by invading hordes as they continued to cling to the belief that Rome was invincible. Without Constitutional Rule of Law, Americans are on the same path and the world will suffer a new dark age.
To accept that we can not or should not fight relentlessly to preserve freedom via The Rule of Law is to condemn future humanity to the Rule of Man. To allow The Constitution to become a worthless piece of paper reveals us as cowards and unfit for freedom. Cowards is not a strong enough word because we patriots know that historically freedom is the exception to the tyrannical rule and we are the people charged with it's care.
Post ScriptWe face a dishonest media, a corrupt government and a miseducated public. We may not prevail. If generations to come see that we failed to fight when we are so clearly on the correct side, it will discourage them. Some of us are not brave enough to face the task for ourselves but imagine a hopeless future where humanity is little more than a natural resources for those in power. You can see it today in the hopeless eyes of the young who are desperately grasping empty promises from the left.
Patriots do have an advantage. We occupy our historical position as the rebels who fight for freedom. We are "cool." Now we must take control of the message and spread real hope.
UpdateSome comments have raised the question of Natural Born Citizenship. This argument always revolves around asking for a direct example of Natural Born Citizen in the Constitution or Supreme Court cases. They never reference a Constitutional example or Supreme Court case that equates naturalized citizen, native born citizen, or simple citizenship with Natural Born Citizenship. They are attempting to use the "it depends upon what the definition of 'is' is" argument.
The definition of Natural Born Citizen is exactly as it sounds. A child who is a natural citizen in that they are born of citizen parents. There is no real controversy on the subject. It is the simplest definition possible and is not directly defined because it is common language just as 'is' is.
