Video:  “Dishonorable Disclosures

Intelligence and Special Operations forces are furious and frustrated at how President Obama and those in positions of authority have exploited their service for political advantage. Countless leaks, interviews and decisions by the Obama Administration and other government officials have undermined the success of our Intelligence and Special Operations forces and put future missions and personnel at risk.

The unwarranted and dangerous public disclosure of Special Forces Operations is so serious — that for the first time ever — former operators have agreed to risk their reputations and go ‘on the record’ in a special documentary titled “Dishonorable Disclosures.” Its goal is to educate America about serious breaches of security and prevent them from ever happening again.

Use of military ranks, titles & photographs in uniform does not imply endorsement of the Dept of the Army or the Department of Defense. All individuals are no longer in active service with any federal agency or military service.

The Founders’ Key by Larry P. Arnn

After readying The Founders’ Key (Nashville:  Thomas Nelson, 2012), I’m still not sure what Larry Arnn is referring to in the title.  The connection between the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution is obvious.  The Declaration of Independence presents the principles upon which our government is founded, and the Constitution lays out the specific method and limits for the U.S. government.

In his “Conclusion,” Arnn correctly points out that

Article I, section 8, of the Constitution lists in seventeen paragraphs the things about which Congress may legislate.  Half of them concern national defense.  The rest mainly concern the guarantee of an unimpeded national system of commerce and property rights and the ability of the federal government to operate on the territory it possesses.  There is no word about education, health, retirement, welfare, or any of the hundreds or perhaps thousands of areas of policy in which the Federal government now operates. (118-19)

In the following paragraph, he admits that we won’t “soon have a government that operates entirely within the confines of the Constitution.  That will take a work of restoration and recovery of many years” (119).

I’ve thought the same thing recently in relation to the current presidential campaign.  I believe Mitt Romney is a conservative, though he may not talk like one since he’s not a politician or a pundit.  I believe he understands and supports the Constitution and will do what he can to restore it.  He may not make the abrupt changes some people prefer, but he will set us on the right path.

As Arnn pointed out, the Constitution does not allow the federal government to get involved in “education, health, retirement,” etc., but we can’t just cut off student loans, Medicare and Medicaid, and Social Security.  Promises need to be kept, and the programs need to be phased out gradually or relegated to the states.
