The Tribune’s tradition of publishing the The Declaration of Independence in your July 4 edition each year is much appreciated. I reread it every year.
This year, one sentence in the Declaration jumped off the page as if it was printed in a bold font. The sentence reads, “A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.”
While this statement was directed at the then-reigning King of Great Britain, our founders, if alive today, I believe, would have no problem applying this same charge against President Barack Obama whose lies and extra-constitutional acts with many of his executive orders are in clear violation of his oath of office in which he vowed, “I do solemnly swear 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.”
