Charles Krauthammer used the term “This is amateur hour” recently describing this administration. George Will said “This is government by teenagers”. I disagree. I believe this administration is cunning, secretive, radical, socialistic and brilliantly deceptive, and all is going as planned. A concerted effort to change our country, circumvent the Constitution, lie to those who elected you, and still have half the country supporting you? That is anything, but amateurish.
These people know what they are doing, and sadly, it is working. When a President can create his own powers and no one challenges him, our form of government wanes. It gives way to abuses of power. President Obama’s style of governing is dangerous to our country with hunger for power. He uses powers that are not his to use. This president has forgone the constitution in many ways, many times. If we are to believe he was a Constitutional lawyer, one would believe he knows what he can and cannot do. However, changing the Affordable Health Care Act is an authority the President does not have via the Constitution. It is his job (responsibility) to enforce the proper execution of laws passed by Congress, not change them. I say he knows this, but he also knows he will always get away with it.
In 2001 Obama was asked what he thought of the Constitution. Listen by clicking this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JxYDnYgQ5MQ. He calls it deeply flawed, imperfect, and more. Another audio from 2001 finds Obama telling a radio interviewer how the Constitution is filled with “Negative Liberties” and not what the government must do on your behalf. This in reference to redistribution of wealth. This version of the audio has amazing comments from my hero, Mark Levin. Listen to it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eDUWpLnS63M.
In 2012 Obama issued an executive order to ease deportation of young illegal immigrants. Yet, here is audio of him doing so, with him also saying how he can’t issue an executive order when dealing with immigration on other occasions. So he admits he can’t, yet he does? This is a blatant abuse of power that exceeds what the executive branch has the authority to do under the Constitution. Listen: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fnzVe_gGTXU.
If the Constitution is changed to a liberal ideology it ceases being a Constitution that was intended to be the law of the land by our founding fathers. In Obama’s book “Audacity of Hope” Obama states “I have to side with Justice Breyer’s view of the Constitution- that it is not a static, but living document and must be read in the context of an ever changing world”. This is a view that all Liberal’s share. Yet if we delve into this theory than the Constitution could be perverted to the extreme that if changed, or re-written to today’s world it would bear little resemblance to its original intent. Gone would be the 1st, 2nd, 10th and 14th amendments. Already Senator Schumer says freedom of speech should be limited. Already the government is telling what Christian organizations must do which goes against the 1st amendment as well. Already Senator Feinstein is attacking the second amendment right to bear arms as well as Common Core education re-wording the 2nd amendment to imply ONLY a well-organized militia may have guns, not the individual.
Listen to one of the most respected law school professors in the nation, Professor Jonathan Turley (A liberal to boot!) from George Washington University talk about Obama is what the Constitution warned us about: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=41kij0HuOmw.
Another way Obama did a end run around Congress and the Constitution was when he declared Congress out of session and then appointed two positions without Congressional approval. A judge ruled this to be un-Constitutional. Listen to Representative Steven King rattle off a list of Obama breaking the Constitution: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ses7EZ3J0A.
This administration also attacks companies and the individual to the point where the Constitution doesn’t protect us. Closing down and fining a guitar factory because of the wood used to make the guitars, to forcing you to buy healthcare. Obama uses the IRS, EPA, NSA as if it was his own personal attack squad. Congress is becoming nothing more than a national credit card spending to the max, while the EPA and others are making laws (Called regulations) all done by people we never elected.
Everything the Constitution is about is also about Conservatism. The founding fathers were conservatives. Take a look at just a few quotes from two of my favorites: Thomas Jefferson who was the main author of the Declaration of Independence and James Madison who was the main author of the Constitution and you tell me if these great men weren’t Conservatives… You can’t!
“When the people fear the government there is tyranny, when the government fears the people there is liberty.” ― Thomas Jefferson
“I predict future happiness for Americans, if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.” ― Thomas Jefferson
“The Democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.” ― Thomas Jefferson
“My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.” ― Thomas Jefferson
“If people let the government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as the souls who live under tyranny.” ― Thomas Jefferson
“To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our election between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude.” ― Thomas Jefferson
“The beauty of the Second Amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it.” ― Thomas Jefferson
“Laws that forbid the carrying of arms . . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes . . . Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.” ― Thomas Jefferson
“I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.” ― James Madison
“Disarm the people- that is the best and most effective way to enslave them.” ― James Madison
“It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood.” ― James Madison (Obamacare is now over 20 thousand pages).
“Charity is no part of the legislative duty of the government.” ― James Madison (…and isn’t that what entitlement programs and redistribution of wealth is?)
“Liberty may be endangered by the abuse of liberty, but also by the abuse of power.” ― James Madison (Abuse of Power? Hear that Mr. President?)
You see, our constitution only works for a Republic (we are not a Democracy as many think we are). If a President has a socialistic, liberal, radical agenda, the Constitution is just in the way. It must be jumped over, ignored, changed. Sadly, it is being done now. With the EPA soon to mandate new regulations against the individual, and 3 more years of the President ruling by executive orders I fear our Constitution will be worthless. We must return to its core principals, small government, taxation with representation, the right to bear arms, free speech, right to privacy, liberty, and for this? I am called extreme.
God Bless America, and the true conservatives as we are what remains of the founding fathers.
UPDATE: Ladies and Gentlemen, and now something not completely different (Borrowing a line from Monty Python… kind of): The President makes at least the 14 un-Constitutional change to Obamacare December 19th, 2013.
