James Madison had warned us of a time such as this in Federalist No. 47 declaring that “the accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny“.
The slow accumulation of power under the Obama adminstration has reached a point in which the legislative and judiciary are no longer separated, but united within the executive branch.
The President has done this strategically, willfully, and intentionally under his commitment to “fundamentally transform the United States of America“.
“The ‘fundamental transformation’ he promised”, states Andrew McCarthy, “involves concentrating power into his own hands by flouting law – statutes, judicial rulings, the constitution itself – and essentially daring the other branches of government to stop him”. The President strategically seeks to agglomerate more power in the federal executive branch, enabling him willfully, without meaningful opposition, to intentionally remake our nation.
The President is successfully transforming a society rooted in individually liberty and private property into one modeled on top-down, redistributionist statism which advances by increasingly concentrating governmental power. The more concentrated the governmental power, the more lawless and tyrannical the President becomes.
We have reached this point as we know that Congress will not pursue the power of the purse to rein in Obama’s lawlessness, we are left with only one option. That option being the impeachment of the President of the United States.
As McCarthy further notes, “impeachment is the only other alternative to the current Congress’s obviously preferred course of action. If you won’t defund malfeasance, you have to remove it – or accept it”. Simply put, there is no other course.
