Gitmo Will Be Closing

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on January 12, 2009 by enemyoftyranny

Barack Obama has announced that he will shut down the base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. I didn’t vote for him, but I absolutely support him on this issue. From “Caffeinated Politics”: “It is essential with President Bush gone from the White House that we start to again nurture respect for American leadership around the world. Barack Obama as leader of the world’s superpower, can start to move in that direction by putting in place the process to close Guantanamo. It has rightfully earned us the scorn and anger from the world community.”

When the War on Terror commenced, Bush had plans for Gitmo, and they weren’t good.  He needed somewhere to keep terror suspects where US law wouldn’t interfere with what “had” to be done.  And of course we know how things ended up.  Nobody has rights, nobody has a chance to confront their accuser, and the prisoners there can be held indefinitely without even being tried in any kind of court.  It’s a good thing that Obama will be ending this.  He even said one of the reasons he is doing it is because what we are doing there doesn’t follow the Constitution.  That’s a rare thing to hear from a politician these days (except of course from Ron Paul).  My question is this:  he’s  stopping the unconstitutional goings on at Gitmo, so when will he be phasing out the Federal Reserve so that we may once again have a Constitutional unit of currency that is either silver or gold and cannot be devalued?  When will he be bringing all the troops home from our unconstitutional wars?  When will he be phasing out Social Security, Medicare, and Welfare?  I’m not holding my breath.  You see, Obama is closing Gitmo because his voting base wants it closed.  They’ll love him for it, and they know it’ll tick off the conservatives.  Obama cares not a wit about whether or not the Constitution is followed, and in that regard, he will be the same as Bush.
