Obama’s disastrous presidency represents a fork in the road. We can turn back, toward limited government, division of powers, and individual liberty. Or we can plunge forward, into egalitarian autocracy. At the rate Obama is laying waste to the foundations of our government, we may not have three years to make the decision. Already Forbes is calling for impeachment:
Since President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law, he has changed it five times. Most notably, he suspended the employer mandate last summer. This is widely known, but almost no one seems to have grasped its significance.
The Constitution authorizes the President to propose and veto legislation. It does not authorize him to change existing laws. The changes Mr. Obama ordered in Obamacare, therefore, are unconstitutional. This means that he does not accept some of the limitations that the Constitution places on his actions. We cannot know at this point what limitations, if any, he does accept.
Human Events recently editorialized that Eric Holder should have never been confirmed as attorney general and that his priorities are dangerous. Here are the Top 10 Reasons Eric Holder Should Not Be Attorney General:
As the water around me continues to swirl in a cyclonic fashion around the drain, I have to ask; have the President and his administration, through example, taught us that it’s okay to pick and choose the laws that we wish to obey?
Since his inauguration, Mr. Obama has flaunted the law on several occasions, and in some cases, completely disregarded the law entirely. Fox example:
By Kelly O’Connell
Obama just announced he will not defend DOMA, the Defense of Marriage Act, designed to block gay marriage legalization. Barack stated the reason—because it is “unconstitutional.” But is it any coincidence Marxist doctrine teaches marriage is a subset of the state; whereas our Founder’s Natural Law only countenances heterosexual unions?
By stating he will not honor legally passed statutes, Obama openly rejects the rule of law. He has pushed the presidency from a defender of our laws into being its destroyer. The reason is that, despite any disagreement Barack has with particular pieces of legislation, he swore an oath to defend the whole Constitution. If he were to challenge this law in a law-abiding manner, this would at least respect our institutions. But to simply declare a particular law “illegal,” is certain to sow future chaos and an antinomian spirit into our Republic.
Consider the Oath of Office for US President:
US Constitution, Article II, Section 1
Before he enter on the execution of his office, he shall take the following oath or affirmation: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) 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.”
Further, most Americans should draw the conclusion Barack is putting the entire USA at risk for openly defying and contradicting nature. Most pointedly, Obama has now exposed himself as a lawless rogue, in defiance of God, country and citizen, and therefore he must be immediately impeached.
Granted that conservatives are not always the sharpest knives in the drawer. We right-wingers sometimes have difficulty grasping the deep, elusive logic of intellectual elitists on the left like Barack Obama when it comes to great and serious questions concerning the U.S. Constitution.
For example, we find it difficult to understand how it is that man who invented ObamaCare, which has been ruled unconstitutional by two separate courts, feels qualified to unilaterally decide that the Defense of Marriage Act, law of the land for 15 years, is suddenly unconstitutional, thereby freeing himself from the responsibility to defend said law in fulfillment of his Oath of Office.
What next, Mr. President?
According to unreliable sources, it appears that President Obama will make a major announcement that will CHANGE everything in America.
