Plain and simple. Enough. The executive branch of government was never meant to mirror a dictatorship, never meant to be an office which holds absolute power and control. Americans were never intended to live in a communist form of government with thugs ruling the roost by usurping the very laws, the very rules upon which the country was founded.
We have checks and balances in place to stop the president from gaining too much power, don’t we? We have a system in place that is supposed to stop ANY president who acts like a dictator, who uses the office to advance his own, evil agenda.
Eric Holder, the Attorney General, the most powerful lawyer in the land, is supposed to reign in the president when he over-reaches. Congress is supposed to reign him in. The Supreme Court is supposed to reign him in.
That’s what we learned in school.
Instead, the current “checks and balances” appear to turn their collective heads, occasionally moaning and groaning on a Sunday talk show, but doing nothing to stop the actions of Barack Obama. They throw up their arms, afraid to make waves because their own political aspirations might take a serious hit if they challenge this thug from Chicago. Some, like Holder, cheer the president on, complicit in Obama’s socialist plot to gain complete control of this country.
Sadly, instead of holding our president accountable, the American people appear more concerned about Kim Kardashian’s newest escapades than about the outrageous presidential behavior which will eventually affect each and every one of us.
Kim Kardashian included.
Even more maddening is the fact that the average God-loving, hard working LIBERAL is oblivious to what’s happening, blindly supporting the filth that are members of “Occupy Wall Street” , the Black Panthers, the unions, and yes, this administration. They have never contemplated the ramifications of their support for these organizations, nor do they want to. The media has done a brilliant “snow-job” on them, leading them to believe that “up” is really “down”, “black” is “white”.
Evil is good.
It’s now become a “me” world, a world where we say “to hell with our kids, to hell with our country. As long as I get my government check every week, I’m a happy camper.” It’s a world where those of us who are awake are at the mercy of those who are either asleep or don’t care. Like the inner city elections in most states, conservatives simply cannot win the arguments anymore. Heck, we can’t even get in on the conversation because we have been outbidded. Freedom and opportunity no longer trump cash and freebies.
The country has lost its soul to entitlements.
President Obama went in front of a group in Ohio recently in a taxpayer-paid campaign speech, proudly proclaiming that he was going to go outside of the rules of the constitution to make recess appointments which he claimed were “necessary” because Congress “refused to act”. Oh, Barack never mentioned that he was usurping the constitution, he simply said that he was doing this to help the people, to help the economy.
It was for OUR own good. For us. Because he loves us and wants what’s best for us.
“I refuse to take ‘no’ for an answer,” Mr. Obama said in Shaker Heights, drawing applause from his audience. “When Congress refuses to act and as a result hurts our economy and puts our people at risk, then I have an obligation as president to do what I can without them.”
The cheers from the Ohio galley were loud and boisterous. Obama had delivered a speech which had impressed all of the useful idiots in attendance. Little did they know that their president had just proclaimed that he was going to make Congress irrelevant, had just proclaimed that he was going to “dictate” the new way of doing things. Little did they know that the man who “loves” them actually loves himself, his power, and his ideology more. Barack has no intentions of making these people “freer” or more prosperous. He wants them to sit down, shut up, and cheer wildly for him.
Which they did.
Hey, wait a minute….. aren’t executive appointments constitutional? Didn’t George Bush and Bill Clinton make executive appointments? What’s the fuss all about?
Here’s what you need to know: Executive appointments can only be made when Congress has not been in session for 3 days. Senators from both parties – including Democrats in 2007 and 2008 (including then-Senator Barack Obama) – unified behind this rule. Members of our current Senate held a session the day before Obama made his announcement. They have been meeting every few days specifically to keep Obama from using executive privileges to gain unnecessary power.
It is one of the ways in which they can constitutionally “check” the president.
Jay Carney, Obama minion and White House spokesman, sees it differently: ” Even though the Senate has been convening in those sessions every three days, he said, “the president’s counsel has determined that the Senate has been in recess for weeks and will be in recess for weeks.”
“The president’s counsel has determined…..”
End of story.
It appears that when Obama doesn’t like our current set of rules, he simply changes them. Tweaks them ever so slightly. Twists the wording and then feeds the people propaganda. No harm done. No big deal.
Like all of the other good dictators throughout history…..
Move on comrads. Nothing to see here…..
