Obama is not a dictator. He only thinks he is. He is increasingly following a path that was blazed by others before him but leads to dictatorship and the end of liberty. What is this path Obama is taking?
It is the path of regulation.
There are three sources of law. These are, the constitution itself, statutes, which are passed by Congress, and Regulations that are issued by various departments of the government. Regulations are often referred to as administrative law. These are the rules and regulations that govern departments but also far too often govern the lives of Americans.
Departments or other government officials do not have the inherent power to issue regulation. Congress, when passing laws, includes what is called enabling legislation. For example, when Obamacare passed, part of the language of that bill authorized the Department of Human Services to issue regulations to implement Obamacare. Some estimate by the time it is done, Obamacare will add 200,000 pages to the Code of Federal Regulations.
As of 1998, there were 134,723 pages of Federal Rules and Regulations.
Increasingly, the Obama regime is using regulations to bypass Congress to achieve what he cannot lawfully. A few weeks ago, the Education Secretary announced he would use regulations to effective end the No Child Left Behind Act. No Child Left Behind was, at best, a horrible law. However, it was passed by Congress and signed by the President. It is up to Congress to change the laws.
Since Obama took office, the area of the Federal Government that is growing the fastest is the area of regulation. Since Obama took office, the budget for federal regulatory agencies has grown by 16% and employment in regulatory agencies has grown by 13%. Meanwhile, in real America, also known as the private sector, employment has shrunk by 5.6%.
The Obama regime also imposed more than 75 major rules in its first 26 months of governing at a cost of more than $40 billion dollars to the corporations and individuals who have to comply with them.
Let’s put that into perspective. If the private sector did not have to pay the costs of these rules, it could take that money and employ 400,000 people at a salary of $100,000 a year!
According to Senator John Barrasso, another 379 Rules costing the private sector another $9.5 billion went into effect in July.
No wonder we are in a depression. The private sector is being regulated to death.
The Republicans may have seen the light. Yesterday Eric Cantor outlined a plan that would cut ten major regulations.
Regulations are job killers. Here is an idea for the GOP. Strip the ability of departments to pass regulations, period. The Cantor plan requires at least major regulations to go to Congress for an up or down vote, which is a good start.
The problem, which the Republicans may not yet get, is that we are over legislated, over regulated and over taxed.
This problem will only be solved when the Congress stops passing new, unnecessary laws and starts cutting the laws, rules and regulations that interfere with liberty and allow the government to intrude even more into the lives of American citizens.
The Rode to Dactatorship has become much easier in the past 3 years with all the successful None Constitutional Bills, Rules and Regulations that have been approved by your Islamic/Marxist 'p'resident, his Obamanation 'a'dministration and the Progressive/Marxists in the 'c'ongress. with support from all the RINO's.
ALL AMERICANS NEED TO WAKE UP BEFORE ITS TOO LATE - THAT WOULD BE OBAMAS ELECTION IN 2012
Dear Judson -
Your final paragraph is absolutely true. However, Congress will NEVER stop passing new, unnecessary laws while it has (1) unlimited power to tax money from the People, (2) unlimited power to borrow money in the credit markets, and (3) unlimited power to have the Federal Reserve print money. The spending industry in Washington, D.C. will just keep demanding more, and more and more, hence, more laws and evermore spending.
The CONSTITUTIONAL SUPPORT TAX (the CST) will effectively put "the clamps" on all of this spending. Please see the CST proposal at www.constitutionalsupporttax.net.

Your link is possibly very interesting, but I refuse to strain my eyes trying to read the tiny font.
How about getting your web person to redo the thing and make it readable.

AMEN! AMEN! AMEN!
Judson, dictators don't need permission or authorization in order to take control of the government.
They only need to work on the fear of the electorate and the elected officials to exercise dictatorial power.
Obama is already a Dictator, because he exercises his power indirectly through his minions and through the Cadre of Controllers hiding in the regulatory agencies, like cockroaches hiding under rocks.
The Democrats have assisted Obama in his rise to Dictatorship, by pushing Political Correctness and by attacking all Conservative people with name-calling and personal attacks.
People are already afraid to call him out for fear of retribution from the government and personal attacks from the Democrats.
Just this morning, I was listening to the Bill Bennett show and a guest mentioned that the new regulations against the secret ballot in union elections was "troublesome". I immediately called in to say that loss of the secret ballot was FAR BEYOND troublesome -- it is a DICTATORSHIP in our government. The call screener said, "I'll pass it on to Bill", and I said "I want to say the word DICTATORSHIP on the air."
The call screener said, "Sorry, man", and hung up.
The Bill Bennett show is AFRAID to say DICTATOR on the air !!!!!
That is exactly how Hitler took over Germany and destroyed it. The people were afraid to fight him early on, when they might have been able to stop him.
***************** WHEN OBAMA MENTIONS JOBS **************************
Dictator Obama, loves to mention Jobs and yet look around Everyday America! No, I am not talking about the ones Obama is talking about... well then who Is Obama talking about? Glad you asked me! When Obama talks about Jobs he is talking about (1) Government Jobs, (2) Union Jobs, (3) Overseas Jobs) and the rest of you America, in Obama's eyes can simply go to Hell! Sorry,
That is Obama! WHY DID I REFER TO OBAMA AS DICTATOR? Glad you asked me! When ever the House and Senate vote on a Bill and it is defeated, If Obama... Excuse me, when Dictator Obama wants that bill passed and was not happy with the results from the House and Senate, Dictator Obama simply passes it anyway and takes and uses the Taxpayers money rather they like it or not. That is trashing the Constitution, That is violation of the Powers Act and Dictator Powers on the part of Obama.
So when Obama speaks before the House and to the Senate, UNDERSTAND HERE AND NOW, They are Worthless and consist of No Power to act or control Obama in any way. And if you don't believe that, take the head out of the sand and look around! WASHINGTON IS NOT WHAT YOU SEE IT AS, SMOKE AND MIRRORS, Congress and the Senate meet because simply Obama feels that you can't handle the truth and the house and Senate won't tell you the truth that they have no power and you the people have no voice because they fear you will revolt.
THAT IS A FACT JACK! and you can live in Fairy land and believe that you have a voice at the next election all you want but the Election is already done and Obama has won before you cast your vote. AND ONE BILLION DOLLARS OF REASONS I CAN GIVE YOU TOO! It all begins with the Government you Don't see and the people who are running the show such as George Soros.
WE THE PEOPLE NEED TO HEAR OBAMA ACT AND ACTUALLY GIVE A DAMN about this country but He hates you, your Family, Our Constitution, the Founding Fathers and even God himself. He will do what he wants when He wants to and if you don't like it.... SCREW YOU! Says Obama
All of our discussions on what we want for America, and who we want to win in the next election, How to create Jobs and reduce the debt is a worthless discussion period! THERE NEEDS TO BEW ONE DISCUSSION BY THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
HOW CAN WE REMOVE OBAMA FROM OFFICE, AND SINCE HE HAS VIOLATED THE CONSTITUTION and the power of the Congress and the Senate I HAVE A BIG SURPRISE FOR YOU AMERICA! ALL.... DID YOU HEAR THAT? ALL POWERS, ALL LAWS, ALL ACTIONS ALL RULES ALL DEMANDS BY THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES ARE VOIDAnd
I declare to you that I Jerry Ballard USNRet Will not and will no longer ever refer to Obama as President of the United States but as the ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES WHO HAVE AN OBLIGATION TO REMOVE HIM BY FORCE IF WE NEED TO.
WE THE PEOPLE NO LONGER HAVE ANY VOICE, OR REPRESENTATION IN WASHINGTON DC All military
Active who hear this discussion, like me, took an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the united States of America. And there comes a time when you as an American have to violate the UCMJ and have to stand for the Constitution of the United States. TODAY IS THAT DAY.
Members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, If you are reading this Discussion, Obama needs to be removed by Force, Arrested, and tried for crimes against the people of the United States of America.
And Every Member of Congress who reads this discussion who refuses to do his duty as a Member of the house or Senate elected by the people of the united states are traitors to this country and should be Arrested as well and tried for crimes.
I SO DECLARE THIS TO ANYONE AND EVERYONE OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! SO HELP ME GOD! GOD BLESS AMERICA, OUR TROOPS AND RESTORING FREEDOM TO AMERICA. KICK THE TIRES AND LIGHT THE FIRES... LETS MAKE IT HAPPEN BABY! ROCK AND ROLL! LOCKED AND LOADED
