Just Words?

We have heard the saying, "A man's word is his bond." It is similar to the concept of a handshake being sufficient to seal a deal. These both involve integrity. I believe that it is a strong indication of how others see you, as to whether or not they accept and/or believe the words that come out of your mouth. When you say that you will do something, is that just as good as a signed contract to the other party? Have you established that kind of a reputation?

As I observe our political leadership in Washington, I find few who I would believe the words that come out of their mouths. That is shameful! It should be embarrassing to each of them. These men and women are supposed to be the best we have to offer; yet, they settle into the offices and become "professional politicians". They learn to say what their audience wants to hear and then walk away and do whatever they really want to do. They can look you in the eye and make a promise that they never intend to keep or make a statement as if it were a proven fact, when they know that it is not true. It has become a situation where they demonstrate just how stupid they believe we all are and how little respect they have for the people they are supposed to be serving.

Our President leads many of these politicians by example. If you remember, during the campaign, BO was the only candidate on the stage who did not have his hand on his heart and was not citing the Pledge of Allegiance. He also was the only one without an American flag on his suit lapel. He was showing us who he really was, but most who noticed were quick to give him the benefit of the doubt. When it was brought to national attention, he began doing what the others were doing so that he would not stand out in a negative way. Now, he does not mind saying the Pledge when he is in front of other people because, to him, it is just words.

"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

BO can stand there and repeat these words and continue on to act exactly the opposite from what he just pledged. Let's analyze the pledge against BO's actions. First, he does not respect the flag or our country. He does not like the concept of America being a Republic. "Under God", forget it. He has no time or use for God, he is to busy playing a god himself. "Indivisible", not in his mind. He sets out to create division in the public and then uses that turmoil to launch his next government plan to solve the crisis. Liberty and justice are also not key concepts in his plan for you and me, much less "for all". Just words!

There was another statement he made when beginning his term as President, it was the oath of office. It has one part that would be troubling to BO, if he were concerned about the things he said matching the things he did. This would be the part about the Constitution.

"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States."

That last part must have almost stuck in this throat as he was repeating the oath of office. Well, at least it should have as he was well aware that he did not mean any part of that phrase. To him, they are just words that had to be said in order to transition into office. Sure, he would say whatever he needed to say, or do whatever he needed to do in order to take power. Once that has transpired, he felt free to be the real BO - a radical, left-wing, socialist who hates what America stands for and what it was founded to be, fully intending to bring "change" to the nation.

Just words! The Pledge, the oath, the Constitution. All just a bunch of words that he has brushed aside so that they would not get in his way.
