"Revolution" a Possible Worst-Case Scenario Over Obama Eligibility

The issue of whether Barack Obama is constitutionally eligible to serve as president seems easy enough to settle: Provide the documentation. Instead, this: 

Military officers from the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines are working with California attorney Orly Taitz and her Defend Our Freedoms Foundation, citing a legal right established in British common law nearly 800 years ago and recognized by the U.S. Founding Fathers to demand documentation that may prove -- or disprove -- Barack Obama's eligibility to be president. . . .

Taitz' plaintiffs, some of whom potentially face life-or-death situations in defense of the U.S. Constitution on a daily basis, . . . are asking for the appointment of a special prosecutor to help in presenting documentation to the Supreme Court.

Harry Riley, a veteran officer with Pentagon service, says the endgame could be "revolution." 

"Myself, along with hundreds of thousands of other warriors, have fought for the U.S. Constitution. The whole issue is one of constitutional crisis, in my judgment. How can an individual become the commander-in-chief, or the president of the U.S., with questions regarding his constitutional qualifications?" he asked.

"The whole idea is that America cannot allow an individual to serve as president who isn't qualified. It destroys our Constitution. It's the bedrock of our nation," he said.

"In the worst case, in the long run, if he continues [to fight revealing his documentation,] it's going to be revolution in the streets," he warned.

"It's simply a matter of producing a $12 birth certificate," Riley says.   


There are many other serious Constitutional issues with this administration, including the stark denial of the 1st and 2nd Amendments (along with the rest of them, really), and the perversion of the census in order to maintain one party rule for the foreseeable future.

I don't know if it really is revolution if the military keeps its oath to defend the Constitution against domestic enemies of the same. That would seem to be an outworking of the existing Constitutional order against a coup.

Finally, another soul who can put a constitutional 2+2 together. This new administration is the fruit of decades of continuous assaults on the Constitution.

Anyone with an ounce of intellectual honesty, who has read the Declaration and Constitution, the Federalist Papers, and a half-way decent history of our founding era will understand how far the country has strayed from the principles laid out in them.

When the electorate can be bought by the politicians, and the politicians by lobbyists and interest groups, and judges make decisions which are pulled out of thin air, it may be the oath of our military which is the only thing which stands between us and tyranny.

Give me liberty or give me death.
