Benjamin Smith Navy SEAL
Now Focusing on Domestic Enemies

|Benjamin Smith - US Navy SEAL
Former Navy SEAL, Benjamin Smith, swore an oath, but what makes this man special is that he meant it – EVERY word of it. Benjamin Smith became a US Navy SEAL in 2000 and honorably served our nation while being deployed around the world in South America, Africa, and in Iraq. Ben is a highly trained, highly skilled combat veteran who has survived many perilous missions during his 6 years as a US Navy SEAL. Even though Ben has completed his service in the Navy and is back at home in the US, he has not forgotten the oath he swore.
The oath of enlistment that every US soldier must affirm and the oath of office that every government official must affirm differ slightly, but the phrase that is common to both is, “I, (name), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic”. This oath has been required of soldiers, representatives, senators, judges, and countless other government officials since it was expanded during the time of the civil war to include “domestic” enemies. At the time those who falsely swore were prosecuted for perjury and forever denied federal employment. Former US Navy SEAL, Benjamin Smith, continues to honor his oath and defend his country and the Constitution, but his enemy is no longer thousands of miles away and wielding an AK-47. His enemy is right here at home. Ben Smith now focuses on defending the Constitution from domestic enemies who seek to destroy the Constitution and bring down America from within.
During the healthcare debate, US Representative Phil Hare said he’s “not worried about the Constitution”. Also during the healthcare debate when asked where in the Constitution it authorizes the federal government to regulate the delivery of health care, Congressman James Clyburn responded, “There’s nothing in the Constitution that says that the federal government has anything to do with most of the stuff we do.” Congressman Anthony Weiner says on the question of whether there is a constitutional mandate for a government health care system: “Perhaps not, but who cares?” Regulatory Czar Cass Sunstein said of the Constitution,

“Maybe we should think that the Constitution has a high degree of flexibility. Maybe it’s a changing and living document.” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was asked where the Constitution grants authority of an individual health insurance mandate, she responded, “Are you serious? Are you serious?” President Obama himself said “the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties” and that the Warren Court failed to “break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution”. Does swearing an oath to “defend the Constitution” mean something else in “political speak”?
Former Navy SEAL, Benjamin Smith, continues to keep his word and now defends the Constitution from domestic enemies who subvert the Constitution for their own political ends. He does this by supporting candidates across the country who still believe that the US Constitution is the supreme law of the land and is not open for “re-interpretation”. Ben has teamed up with the Tea Party Express and has traveled to places like Alaska in support of Republican Senate candidate Joe Miller and to Delaware in support of Republican Senate Candidate Christine O’Donnell and many others. Ben also works with Move America Forward, an organization dedicated to supporting our troops around the globe in the war on terror. Move America Forward also endorses candidates who truly keep their word to support and defend the US Constitution.
Ben with Tea Party Express
Ben is quoted as saying that you are “no less important than our troops fighting overseas”. America that statement could not ring more true than in the upcoming elections. It is our duty as Americans to vote and support candidates who are men and women of their word and will truly “support and defend” the Constitution of the United States. It is not about voting for a candidate who will “give you” the most; it is about doing what is best for your country. YOU have a duty. YOU have an obligation as an American to serve your country and to do what is best for it. America is the greatest nation in the history of mankind; why would you want to “fundamentally transform” it into something else?
In Ben’s travels with Move America Forward, he often appears across America with Debbie Lee. Debbie is the mother of Marc Alan Lee who was the first Navy SEAL to pay the ultimate price in the war in Iraq on August 2nd, 2006. Debbie’s son Marc had in his heart the honor and willingness to pay the price for the freedoms we enjoy today. While Debbie courageously speaks on stage telling the story of her son, Ben stands humbly to the side holding a sign. On the front of that sign is a picture of Marc Allen Lee commemorating a fallen hero and brother. On the back of that sign it reads “Ahoy Navy SEALs, thar be pirates in DC!” I can only take that to be a message to his brothers and sisters that are still in harm’s way saying, “I’ve STILL got your back”. America, whose “back” are you covering?
