Non-negotiable

President Obama will neither sign government funding bills that slash domestic spending nor negotiate to reduce the federal debt limit.

The president was not going to accept a budget in which domestic spending is further cut to soften the blow to Defense spending.

Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:–“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.”
So, Obama isn’t willing to cut spending, (but somehow will blame Republicans for his refusal) he’s unwilling to soften Defense cuts, and I’m wondering if he’s even read the Constitution he’s sworn to uphold. 
 
I think not.

Happy Birthday Constitution!

We the People. 

Three little words I love to hear.  :)  They begin one of the greatest documents in history. 

Today is the birthday of the United States Constitution.  It is 225 years old today, and means just as much now as it did then.  Age has only added to its beauty.  :) 

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.

In the final paragraph of Federalist No. 41, Madison says Art. I, §8, cl. 1 does not vest in Congress a power to legislate in all cases whatsoever: Clause 1 is merely a “general expression”, the meaning of which is “ascertained and limited” by the clauses which “immediately follow” it.

To put Madison in modern English: Clauses 1 & 2 grant to Congress the power to raise money; clauses 3-16 enumerate the objects on which Congress may appropriate the money so raised, thus limiting clauses 1 & 2.

THAT is the Constitution We ratified.
