The Founding Fathers, the Electoral College and the Insanity of the Department of Justice

 

The quest to determine Obama’s eligibility has seen the Department of Justice resort to our Founding Fathers. In their motion to dismiss they state,

 

The Constitution’s commitment to the Electoral College of the responsibility to select the President includes the authority to decide whether a presidential candidate is qualified for office because the examination of a candidate’s qualifications is an integral component of the electors’ decision-making process.

 

Explaining this provision of the Constitution, Alexander Hamilton stated that: “the people of each State shall choose a number of persons as electors, equal to the number of senators and representatives of such State in the national government who shall assemble within the State, and vote for some fit person as President.” [emphasis added]. See Federalist Papers, No. 68.

 

If this is true then why hasn’t the Department of Justice sought “federal” election law violations in 26 States and the District of Columbia that mandate that the electors vote not for someone who is “fit” to be President, but vote for the person who wins the popular vote?

 

What is more disturbing is that this particular group has a sufficient number of electors to place into office a person who they are prohibited by law to determine if this person is fit or not.

From the list above and the total number of electoral votes being more than what is necessary to elect a President with out the electors having an opportunity to examine the qualifications of the candidate then what the Department of Justice is saying is nonsense.

 

But in the same Federalist Paper number 68 Hamilton gives the reason why as he calls obstacles are part of the process.

 

Nothing was more to be desired than that every practicable obstacle should be opposed to cabal, intrigue, and corruption. These most deadly adversaries of republican government might naturally have been expected to make their approaches from more than one querter, but chiefly from the desire in foreign powers to gain an improper ascendant in our councils. How could they better gratify this, than by raising a creature of their own to the chief magistracy of the Union? But the convention have guarded against all danger of this sort, with the most provident and judicious attention. They have not made the appointment of the President to depend on any preexisting bodies of men, who might be tampered with beforehand to prostitute their votes; but they have referred it in the first instance to an immediate act of the people of America, to be exerted in the choice of persons for the temporary and sole purpose of making the appointment. And they have excluded from eligibility to this trust, all those who from situation might be suspected of too great devotion to the President in office. No senator, representative, or other person holding a place of trust or profit under the United States, can be of the numbers of the electors. Thus without corrupting the body of the people, the immediate agents in the election will at least enter upon the task free from any sinister bias. Their transient existence, and their detached situation, already taken notice of, afford a satisfactory prospect of their continuing so, to the conclusion of it. The business of corruption, when it is to embrace so considerable a number of men, requires time as well as means. Nor would it be found easy suddenly to embark them, dispersed as they would be over thirteen States, in any combinations founded upon motives, which though they could not properly be denominated corrupt, might yet be of a nature to mislead them from their duty.

 

Hamilton was worried about a preexisting body, but in his time there was no mass media. He seen local media as only being able to influence small sections of the country, as he wrote.

 

Talents for low intrigue, and the little arts of popularity, may alone suffice to elevate a man to the first honors in a single State; but it will require other talents, and a different kind of merit, to establish him in the esteem and confidence of the whole Union, or of so considerable a portion of it as would be necessary to make him a successful candidate for the distinguished office of President of the United States.

 

But today with the MSM being owned and controlled by corporate groups, all of which are owned in part by foreign interests, the need for a free body of electors who swear to insure that any candidate they cast their vote for is qualified. Hamilton couldn’t envision an America where people were manipulated on a national scale by marketing executives and behavioral psychologists.

 

The truth is that during the election there was no mass media coverage at all about Obama’s questionable constitutional eligibility. So even those free electors in the 24 states whose vote is not mandated by law we intentionally kept in the dark.

Even with these free electors, the election laws of the several states favor the unconstitutional political parties. Yes, you heard me correctly political parties are unconstitutional. The Founding Fathers knew about them and refused to recognize them in the Constitution. They warned us about them but they refused to make them a codified part of our national government.

 

When the laws of the states forbid the electors to use their best judgment on selecting a President, when the mass media has been taken over by foreign interests and keeps those free electors in the dark, and when the states allow blocks of electors to run under party banners that is at odds with the intentions of the Founding Fathers it not only becomes disingenuous of the Department of Justice to try and use the words of the Founders to keep a person whose qualifications have been questioned by the Supreme Court, but makes them complicit in treason.

 

Eric Holder said, "Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial, we have always been and we -- I believe continue to be in too many ways essentially a nation of cowards," well we can see now that he and his boss are the biggest coward of them all.

 

To think that in America today it takes the full force of the United States justice system, with the complicity of mass media to hide from the American people a simple little truth, is Obama constitutionally qualified to be President or not.

 

Is this a question of affirmative action? Can’t the first man of color put to rest these questions once and for all or does he need the coercive force of the government to support his unsubstantiated claim of being a natural born citizen.

 

I think that America was ready for her first President of color. I am not sure if she was ready for the one whose true color is communist red, but I am sure America was never ready to have as her President the born subject of red coats of the country we first gained our independence from.

 

I do fear for my country, I fear because honest debate has been stifled by over priced lawyers and pretty puff personalities who nightly tell lies on our televisions. I fear because the vast once silent majority has awakened and found that both the government and the once free press wants them to shut up. I fear when I do not hear these patriots because I know that a rage is building inside of them, a rage that will not be stifled, but one that will explode upon the political landscape. I am afraid that those in power have long since concerned themselves with anything other then themselves that these cowards in office may set in motion events that bear eerie similarities to what the British done to start the first revolution.
