Reader comments about this quote:
Mr. Obamunist Goodwrench the assassin, as demonic royalty, has realized his greatest accomplishments by constraining the exercise of inalienable rights through the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land, (Registration being a constraining act against that which shall not be infringed. The newest life taxes on each and every person constrains the exercise of the inalienable right to life, etc., etc., etc.)

    This usurper and chief by the name of Obama actually believes that he is Empirically Superior to the Supreme Rule of Law and therefore the only unalienable rights that individuals may have are those that he and his Progressive socialist cohorts deem necessary to further their ends.

    This has certainly been true in Christies NJ!

    Obama is a socialist/communist central planner.

    Cheers?

    I don't believe that President Obama's name or quotes should ever be affiliated with the terms freedom and liberty. His mindset and philosophy are closer to those of Marx and are counterintuitive to those of us who believe those inalienable rights. He is not just a liberal, but an avout leftist who sought and is carrying out his fundamental transformation of a good and decent place known as America.

    Whats really said is not what this President believes and is trying to accomplish; but that 52 percent of Americans buy into it. He is not the problem we the people have lost touch with what true patrioticness really is anymore. The only ones that seem to show there love for this country is our service people in arms way. What has happen to us?

    Here the president infers that unambiguously clear human rights, as established and prescribed by Bill of Rights, really exist only for their photo-op usefulness, for pushing the myth of "American exceptionalism" - or some other form of self-congratulatory hooey - all ostensibly founded in our hallowed, if increasingly nebulous 'freedoms.' Otherwise, "It's just a gah-damned piece of paper", as the U.S. Constitution was so eloquently defined by G.W. Bush, previous defiler of the Bill of Rights, common war criminal and betrayer of Holy Oath. What a pity extant reality reveals both of these tyrants, these little men, as being precisely correct!

    The problem is the majority buy in to this type of thinking. As long as the government continues to take from those who have and give to those who do not have, this is the type of leadership we have to look forward to. There are now more takers than givers, so do you think the givers are going to stop receiving? I believe America is too far gone to recover.

    Dear Mr. Obama, With the changing times, we now live in, The Dispensation of the fullness of times. There are four dispensations ! Regardless of who understands or the lack thereof, makes no difference to the outcome of the event which unfolds. I am aware of your participation in the bringing about of the fullness of sin required before action is taken. Scripture and verse is not needed, to make the point known. But today is the 2nd month and 10th day. Strong delusion will come no doubt. Your grey hairs are many, and if you are lucky they will increase. Constant prayer is made for all involved which is part of my job, If one suffer we all suffer. With all sincerity, your degrading behavior and that of the justice department and all parties who would condone this ungodly process of behavior is reprobate in all aspects. You will reap what you sow. May God, the Creator of heaven and earth, That is the God of Israel, which I believe you do not know or trust, have mercy on your soul, and all you cohorts. The fraying will come ! As with strong delusion, You are planos in all your actions !! An imposter in the vagabond type, a corrupter of the morally upright. May you be removed in an instant and all that be likened unto you, in thought and deed. You have no right to teach my children anything. The wayfairing man has ceased, the backbone of our country was broken in 2008. Of course you knew this would happen. Through Greed !!

    Liberty and Freedom of heart, is to join at heart the ranks of those that stand around our tree of liberty, and the innocent blood ! shed upon the alter of freedom by way of the Creator who was manifest in the flesh, The 4th book, 1st chapter 14th verse, and it is 2014 ! And the word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, ( and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, ) full of grace and truth.

    Hey, it's not just Obama, the same was true under the Bush's and the Clinton's. Always an excuse to tighten the chains a little more -- always for the common good, as if individual rights were negotiable.

    I always remember that whenever they are proposing to take away one right, they are transferring it to themselves. If they are proposing disarming the populace, they are proposing to arm themselves. If they are proposing to tax us, they are proposing to take for themselves. Why do we keep letting them do that! Crimes against humanity indeed, and the commonwealth be damned.

    Sounds more like saddam, Castro, Lenin, Stalin, Marx, kruschev, or even hitler than it does the president of the United States of America.
