Response to David Zephyr (Original post)

18. This is probably the most important post I have seen in my short presence here at DU.

I have been saying this for years and subtly commenting on our election season for months about this very real danger to democracy. This is one of the most important elections in decades because it is the culmination of extreme ideologies at war within our own country. The chasm is so polarized that there is no doubt in my mind that if the GOP were to use tactics for subverting the public's will, this is the time they would do it to the point of treason.

The big wake up call for me was the oath of office by Obama. Chief Justice Roberts misspoke the oath. Luckily, President Obama was sharp enough to wait for Roberts to repeat it a second time and then state it correctly despite Robert's deliberate misquote. It may not sound like much but it could have become a point of contention that could have been used by the Supreme Court to settle a constitutional crisis and call the election void IF they found a reason to defy the president. I have never forgotten it and I will never underestimate the powers that will control though treachery against the people of the United States.

This is a very important message. Thank you David.

I am also worried about President Obama's safety. If he wins this election, there are many who would not stop at the worst form of treason. These are extreme times, no less extreme than those of the 1960's and maybe even more so. I hope for our wonderful president to stay close to those he trusts and that those who are his protectors not let the factions of hate cause them to loose track of their oaths to the American people and their president.
