Protesting against the charge that he is for "big government," Obama declared: "We [really?] don't believe that government's main role is to create jobs or prosperity."
The mind boggles at such a statement, coming from the President of the US. The Preamble of the Constitution, which summarizes the government's purpose, clearly states that the government has a role in creating prosperity:
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, PROMOTE THE GENERAL WELFARE, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
While I'm at it, I'd like to remind Congress of the following passage:
The House of Representatives shall chuse their Speaker and other Officers; and shall have the sole Power of Impeachment.
Nowhere in the Constitution does it say that the President has the power to pretend that certain portions of the Constitution don't exist, and effectively rewrite it by simply stating that "we don't think it says this," when it clearly does. "Promoting the general welfare" is defined by the writings of Hamilton and other founding fathers, which are the basis of Lyndon LaRouche's economic policies.
Barack Obama is in violation of his oath of office, which is all about abiding by the Constitution. He is a British subject, not an American. Congress, do your duty!
