God, not Government, is from where our rights spring. That's what Fat-Head Fred said in this Iowa campaign spot.
"Common Sense Conservative Principles," says Fred, forgetting to mention that he was a stoolie for the Nixon administration during the Watergate hearings, betraying his oath to the Constitution in the process.
Notice how in this ad he doesn't stutter and stammer the way he does "in real life"? He's such an actor, a poseur.... a phony. I half expected a loaf of white bread to appear at the end of the commercial -- but it was Fred, telling us that our rights aren't granted by government, but by God.
I guess that means he intends to trash the Constitution also, just like Bush, and try to replace it with the Ten Commandments instead?
Article II, Section I of the Constitution contains the presidential oath of office:
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.
If Fred Thompson believes our rights come from God and not the Constitution he's incapable of taking that oath, but Fred Thompson is an actor -- a professional liar -- and he'll tell America whatever it wants to hear so he can get it office and then do whatever he damn pleases. Just like Bush.
