Shall We Fly our Flags Upside-Down as a Signal of Distress?

PatriotPost.US "In Friday's edition, there was an editor's note: 'Should Barack Obama succeed in deceiving a majority of voters next Tuesday, our readers have suggested two methods of protest: Either displaying your flag upside down [a sign of distress] or flying it at half mast -- or both, for seven days, and doing the same on inauguration day, 20 January 2009.' Undoubtedly some of your readers will suggest that, when the election is over, as members of a constitutional republic, we are obliged to support the president. I would suggest you refer them the Samuel Adams quote oft published in The Patriot: 'If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animating contest of freedom, go from us in peace. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen!'" --Ft. Bragg, North Carolina  

Editor's Reply: Indeed, Obama has never honored his Senate oath to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic" or to "bear true faith and allegiance to the same." He subscribes to the errant notion of a "Living Constitution," which, in his own words, "breaks free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution." If elected president, Obama has already, by way of his proposed policies, indicated he has no intention of honoring his presidential oath to "preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States." Military officers in the service of the United States are bound by their oath to disobey any order that violates the Constitution of the United States. We operate under the same constraint.  

"If Obama wins next Tuesday, our flag will be upside down for the ENTIRE length of his presidency!" --Cathedral City, California  

"As frightening as the prospect is, I found your comment, 'Let's not go there -- yet,' extremely encouraging. It lifted my spirit. Thanks for having to courage to put it in print." --Bakersfield, California  

"You know, The Patriot will be outlawed under the Obama politburo if he is elected. We'll have to go underground!" --Columbus, Ohio  

Editor's Reply: Yeah, but we will still be "bitterly clinging to guns and religion," with a smile!
