One of the favorite terms that is thrown around by conservatives to describe Barack Obama is the word “Dictator.”
Is this just more hyperbole or is there a good case of truth in naming here?
Obama is scrapping our Constitution, moving towards a type of government our forefathers not only loathed but also warned us against. This is a government with a strong, central chief executive.
Obama’s blatant disregard of the law made another appearance this week as Obama decided he did not like the Welfare Reforms that were signed into law in the 1990’s.
These reforms were very successful in getting people off of the welfare rolls and getting them back to work.
Obama did not like this so what does he do? He did what he always does. He ignores the law.
Prior to the 1990s, welfare was easy and expansive. People could live endlessly on welfare and make no attempt to get off of it. The Welfare reforms on the 1990’s required that welfare recipients work.
Now, the Department of Health and Human Services has notified the states that if they want a waiver from the work requirement, all they have to do is ask.
Wham! Just like that a law enacted by Congress and signed by another President is set aside. Yes, it remains on the books, but it is effectively gone.
In dictatorships, Dictators make decisions and rule by decree. In a Republic, the legislature makes laws and the executive simply carries them out.
Not in the world of Obamaland. Now, in the People’s Republic of Obama, the Constitution no longer matters. If Obama does not want his top people to be confirmed by the Senate, he simply declares them Czars and puts them into positions without bothering to send them to the Senate for confirmation. He does not like the Defense of Marriage Act, he declares it unconstitutional and says he will not defend it from legal challenges.
Obama’s favorite mantra when he speaks to his adoring faithful is, “we can’t wait.” That’s his excuse. The legislative branch has the good sense to stop his stupid ideas. He does not like it so instead of compromising, he simply imposes by fiat.
Anyone remember when the Republicans went to the White House in 2009 and complained about Obama’s agenda? He simply announced, “I won.”
That is Obama. I won therefore I can do what I want.
In the last 70 years, almost all Presidents have tried to expand the power of the Presidency. Obama is not simply trying to expand the powers of the Presidency. He is trying to make it, not one of three coequal branches of government, but the dominant branch of government to which all must bow down before.
Barack Obama is the most dangerous man ever to have stepped into the Oval Office. If the GOP goes ahead and nominates Romney we will have a Republican candidate who will probably not expand the powers that Obama assumed but also will do nothing to roll them back to their Constitutional limits either.
For those of us who are baby boomers, we grew up in the greatest, freest nation this world has ever known. Now it is our freedom that may soon be on the endangered species list.
Thanks Barbara :-)
Welcome disillusioned ;-}}
I wouldn't put too much weight on Martial law being inacted. Obama may try but he will never get away with it. It would be a straight shot to jail. The other thing " alarmists " are saying is that George Soros is backing a movement to create violence in our streets across the country. Once again another idiot who thinks he has alot more power than he does. The election results will be upheld and if Obama doesn't leave on his own power he will get help but not the kind he will like.
Wish I had your confidence Joseph. While we can't be jumping around to all kinds of unfounded conclusions, nothing in Obama's behavior has lead me to believe that I should ever underestimate anything he may try to pull. And should he attempt a fast one, who is it that will stand in his way? The same people/institutions that have thus far allowed him to skirt the very same Constitutional limits at every turn?
re ROMNEY - - how can you state this with any certainty ? >> (Romney) will probably not expand the powers that Obama assumed but also will do nothing to roll them back to their Constitutional limits either.
I think traitor is more fitting. Obama and his cronies should already be doing hard time in prison for treason and there are fools who can't wait to get them reelected. America is screwed again if that happens. Those people have used the freedoms they have in America to destroy it. Why the communists are not called communists, I do not understand.
...and it's our fault. We weren't just silent, we were asleep. If we lose this great country, we have no one to blame but ourselves.
I thought he was ineligible to be president of the United States so I guess that all the evidence was wrong. I don't think so ! He is the worst of all anti Americans because he never was one. What do you think?
Judson, I have been an ardent fan of Tea Party Nation since I learned of it and joined almost two years ago, and have admired what you are doing for our contry..
Consequently, I would really appreciate your telling me, and all of your readers for that matter, why you, like all of the conservative media, keep implying that Rubio and Jindal are qualified to be Vice President, by running a banner ad for Townhall's poll. They should be ashamed for including Rubio and Jindal in the poll also, and not telling the public why they should not be in it.. It is a known fact that they are not "natural born", and you are doing nothing but aiding and abetting everyone else in the press who are fooling the public by making the implications that they are qualified by what you do on your sites, like running this banner ad..
Just because the rotten Democrats feel they can violate the Constitution doesn't mean that the conservatives should do the same. IT IS UPHOLDING THE CONSTITUTION WE ARE TALKING ABOUT HERE !!! TWO WRONGS DO NOT MAKE A RIGHT !!!
It is our side doing things like this that help make Obama and the left think thy can do whatever they want, because not only will we not call them out on it, we aid and abet by trying to do the same. The Conservative Press will not even touch the issue of "natural born", while people like O'Reilly and Medved flat deny that it means what it does.
I would truly appreciate an answer !!!!
You are exactly right! As much as I like Rubio, he's not qualified to be VPOTUS or POTUS under the requirements of the "Natural Born Citizen" clause of the Constitution. Have often wondered if the fact the GOP's grooming Rubio is the main reason they've been silent on Obama. It seems not one politician on either side of the aisle in Washington cares about The Constitution. We're in a sad pickle, our entire government is full of elitists who just want to retain their power over us... and the windfall of money and influence that comes with it... and care nothing for the people or our laws.
If Rommny chooses Rubio you are right we are a LOST nation
The Tea Party must stand up against this specific waiver. Contact your Senator and Representive and rise to the occasion and stop Obama with his changing the laws passed to whatever he wishes. President Clinton with a Republican leader passed a reform bill that required that welfare were unable to work. Obama wants to make it another welfare program that he controls. Can you amaigan what will happen if he is reelected.
