CPAC, CFR, and The Constitution

"We want every American to be the best he or she chooses to be.

We recognize that we are all individuals. We love and revere our founding documents, the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. [Applause]

We believe that the preamble to the Constitution contains an inarguable truth that we are all endowed by our creator with certain inalienable rights, among them life. [Applause] Liberty, Freedom. [Applause] And the pursuit of happiness. [Applause]

Those of you watching at home may wonder why this is being applauded. We conservatives think all three are under assault. [Applause] Thank you. Thank you." ~Rush Limbaugh

A great speech overall, but I have a few issues with it, and with the speaker.

of all, you will notice in the second paragraph that he mentions the "inarguable truth" in the preamble to the U.S. Constitution that we are endowed by our creator with the inalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Before I continue, let me mention that he was awarded the "Defender of the Constitution" award.

The preamble to the Constitution, you know, the "We the People" document, doesn't say anything about life, liberty, or the pursuit of happiness; that's a quote from the Declaration of Independence.

"Ooh, Soory!" ~Alex Trebek

Secondly, how can a man who talks to millions of people everyday, setting the opinion of those who would receive it (don't worry, I'm not a Fairness Doctrine crazy; I know he doesn't set public opinion), be given an award recognizing his "defense of the Constitution", and be lauded as a leader within the "conservative movement" when he puts out the disinformation that the Council on Foreign Relations does not exist.

The Council on Foreign Relations, which has been mentioned on mainstream news programming as actively functioning, is a think-tank for Globalism and one-world government. Many members are politicians such as, admittedly, Dick Cheney:

Ha, ha, ha; Cheney, you are soooo funny.

To understand the basics of the CFR, it requires a goodly amount of time, which I don't currently have, as it is late and I'm slightly cranky. *Smiles Weakly*

Here's an "okay" video that I found; more informative info will follow:

A world government will never work- at least into the foreseeable future. There's way too many differences of opinion. Besides, world organizations haven't worked so well. Just look at the United Nations. No substance.

And the thought of an all powerful world government scares me to death.

Thanks for the comments, Elm and Palinesque!

World Government has been tried before, but I think God blew their tower over and confused their languages because they didn't have any translator-ear-things.

omg hilarious and true, but of course now, you can get the ear translation thingys at superK (as in happy kansas week again)

somewhere in the Bible though it does mention something to this effect happening again, you grab the popcorn and I'll get the grape juice, I read ahead but will try and not spoil the Extravagant Ending for you. Elm don't worry, it is time to laugh!
