When we think of a dictator, we usually think of someone in another country, wearing a military uniform, watching his troops goose-step down the main boulevard.
It can’t happen to America, can it?
It is happening in America. It is happening right now and we are mostly ignoring it. What is worse, the group that should be jumping up to defend freedom is mostly sitting on the sidelines.
The term dictator comes from the word dictate or to which means to speak or act domineeringly.
Can anyone seriously argue this is not exactly what we are seeing from the Obama Regime?
Does anyone remember Obama’s big slogan, “We can’t wait?” Obama said point blank that he could not wait for Congress nor would he. The man the left likes to point out was a Constitutional law professor (actually he was a mere instructor), either cannot read the Constitution or he willfully ignores it.
The greatest concentrations of power in the Constitution are reserved for three groups: The Congress, the States and the People.
Unfortunately for Obama, all three oppose him so he can’t wait so he acts in a dictatorial fashion.
In 2009, he created Czars to by pass the Constitutional requirement that senior administration officials be permitted only with the advice and consent of the Senate.
When Obama does not like a law, what does he do? He ignores it. The Defense of Marriage Act is the prime example. This law was passed by Congress and signed into law by Bill Clinton. Obama, not the Supreme Court, decided it was unconstitutional. Instead of going back to Congress asking that Congress repeal this law, he announced he would order the Justice Department not to defend the law in Court.
Obama objected to “No Child Left Behind.” While “No Child Left Behind” is a bad law, instead of asking Congress to repeal it, he just grants waivers so the law is effectively gutted.
Obama wanted his DREAM Act passed. When Congress refused, he announced he was not going to enforce immigration laws he did not like. When Congress would not pass Cap and Trade, he directed the EPA to impose it administratively. Congress would not pass Net Neutrality so the FCC in a brazen power grab imposed it.
The list of Obama’s usurpations grows by the day. Anything he does not like, he uses the power of the Federal Government to stop. Anything from oil exploration to fracking to a state’s attempts to protect itself against illegal immigration, if Obama does not like it he will use the overwhelming power of the Federal Government to stop it. He will do so regardless of the wishes of Congress, the American people or the Constitution.
Where are the Republicans while this is going on?
They were nowhere to be found.
In fairness to the GOP, from 2009 until 2011, there was nothing they could do. With the Party of Treason holding a majority in the House and a super majority in the Senate, they were stuck.
Since 2011, what have the Republicans done about Obama?
Not a damn thing.
They have not defunded his czars.
They have not defunded the FCC.
They have not defunded Obamacare.
They have not taken a single action to change Obama’s behavior. When Obama announced that he would no longer defend court challenges to the Defense of Marriage Act, what was the GOP’s response? They hired a law firm to handle the defense. That was it.
What was the GOP’s response to Obama’s amnesty? Not a damn thing.
The only thing the Republicans did was run for the cameras, making the most dangerous spot in America, the space between them and a camera.
The Republicans are now campaigning on the theme of elect them to stop Obama. That’s a great theory but in the last year and a half they have had the tools to at least slow him down.
What do we Americans have to show for that?
Not a damn thing.
America stands at the edge of the cliff. We are about to lose our freedoms to a dictatorship. What will Obama do if he has a second term? What will he do if he is no longer constrained by the prospect of facing the voters again? As Obama told the Russians, wait until after the elections when he is free to do what he wants.
We cannot stand a second Obama term.
What is worse, the Republicans are doing nothing to stop Obama’s radical expansion of power. Does anyone really believe that if Mitt Romney is in fact the nominee and gets elected, he will do anything to reduce the power of the Executive Branch of the Government?
We have a terrible choice this year. We cannot allow under any circumstances a second Obama term. We must do what ever it takes to make certain that the Party of Treason is voted out of power.
I think that Congress is in on the deal.
You are correct we cannot tolerate a second term of Obama. So, on this site let's stop splitting the conservative vote.
Right on, Deb!
YOU GOT IT! " What we don't need is another Ross Perot!," and the parrot added, "Stupid!"in a low voice.
Well said, Debrajoe! That is why I keep saying that we MUST band together and vote for whoever the Republican nominee is. Getting rid of Odumbo is "JOB ONE"!
Judson, I could not agree more with your assessment of Obama's intent. From the beginning it should have been clear to any observer that dictatorship was his goal. It should have also been clear that the reigning Republicans are a bunch of do-nothing wimps. However, I could not disagree with you more on what action the people should take. In a prior post, unless I very much misunderstood your intent, you said that we should not vote for Romney. Granted, he is not the ideal candidate, but do you seriously believe that a "wildcard" (so to speak) candidate would have a chance of being elected? It is my opinion that it will be either Romney or Obama. We know the path down which Obama is taking us, and it is one of destruction of our nation. Could Romney be worse? Also, I offer this observation. Had you used your considerable exposure and influence to support a strong and conservative candidate during the past few months, instead of continuing to support Newt, who had no chance of winning, we just might have a stronger candidate now.
You think Romney has a better chance over Newt! Romney was Pro-choice, Pro-gay marriage, Pro-gun control and he created Romneycare which is now being used against him. And he only changed position on the first 3 to run on our ticket. You don't think people know that? Despite Newt's "baggage", these are policy differences which the people don't like. If he was the people's choice he would be screaming the winner at the primaries, but he's not. The RNC has had to stifle the other candidates and change the rules along the way to get Romney over the finish line. VERY scary scenario, don't you think? Aren't you settling for the lesser of 2 evils (I know, old cliche') and aren't you tired of the GOP/RNC telling YOU you have to take their guy? (expressive caps, I'm not yelling) I know people who outright refuse to vote for Romney because he is just another Obama and they won't compromise their values. And I don't want the argument now that they will be at fault if BO gets back in. No! The GOP/RNC will be at fault for giving... no... forcing on us another unelectable moderate.
Romney is not a better choice than Gingrich, and I am very disappointed HOWEVER, he is the choice we have. I dont count Obama as a choice since he MUST GO. No matter what, the ultimate goal this time around is to dethrone Obama. IT is a matter of our survival as a country. One person I know likened this campaign as being left with a choice between to turds. An he is right, But again, we know the Obama turd stinks to high heaven. And it does stand to reason that choosing a no show vote is one for Obama. Lets us all do what we need to do, to put the brakes on this train wreck.
The only reason Newt did not have a chance of getting elected is because of people like you that made that decision based on the idiotic media and RINO campaign against him. Why is it that all you people are the smartest in the world about your chosen candidate but you cannot see the writing on the wall when it is right in front of you. Why is it that the RINO's were trying to keep Newt out? Could it be the same reason they trumped up charges on him to run him out before!!? Could it be he truly is the conservative candidate we need and they knew he would stop this liberal trend and ruin their cushy little job? Why did the Mainstream Media try to ruin him as well? The things they were crucifying him on were nothing more than their poster boy Clinton had done!!? Newt knows where the bodies are buried and who has skeletons in the closet!!! He could have stopped all this nonsense because they would not have challenged him or he would have exposed the remaining frauds for what they are. When the media and the RINO's are trying to destroy someone why are we not smart enough to see that they are the ones we should be voting for because it is them that the establishment FEARS the most!!! NO of course we are too stupid to see that, but we can be lead by the nose to vote for the guy that can out spend all the rest!!! We truly do deserve whatever comes because we are too stupid to be free!!! If you couldn't see this charade you shouldn't be allowed to wander around by yourself!!
