Where there's smoke, there's ire

Where There's Smoke, There's Ire:

“A White House aide, who like virtually all
White House officials (in this story and in general) refused to be identified for fear of antagonizing the president… How many people dare to snap back at a president? Not many, and not unless they have known the president a long, long time. (Even Karl Rove, or 'Turd Blossom,' as he is sometimes addressed by the president, knows when to hold his tongue.) In the Bush White House, disagreement is often equated with disloyalty… his attitude toward Congress was 'my way or the highway,' according to a GOP staffer who did not want to be identified criticizing the president.”"

To many Christians, to those who sit in church buildings week after week and to those who are forsaking these building and looking for true assemblies, this makes perfect sense as we are familiar with the lone/solo or "senior pastor," who equates questioning or disagreement with disloyalty.

Thomson writes, "Some say Bush should be impeached. Sorry, I don’t agree. He’s not the first President to consider the Constitution an expendable document and he won’t be the last. Most Presidents have complained that the Constitution gets in their way.

When Teddy Roosevelt decided to send the Marines into North Africa, his Secretary of State cautioned him such an act would be unconstitutional.

Teddy snapped back: “Why destroy the beauty of the act with legalities?”

Presidents, by their nature, look for ways to skirt the law when that law gets in the way of their agendas. If we impeached every President who disregarded the Constitution when it didn’t suit his purposes we probably would have tried just about every President in the last 50 years."

Well, maybe we should have. And perhaps if we would have, America wouldn't be in the fix she is in today! What kind of reasoning is that? These officials take an oath to protect the Constitution without reservation. If they have any type of disdain for the Constitution, they are not for the American people, but they are against us and should look into moving to any of the many countries who are not the owners of the precious document that true Americans hold dear.
