Ideology is not Authority
by Jeremiah Joslin
Can you imagine what the Democrats would have said or how they would have acted if President George Bush threatened Executive Order to accomplish an ideological goal that, under the normal, constitutionally-defined process, would not make it through Congress? Can you imagine the reaction of the Democrats if he, or any other Republican President, circumvented or tried to circumvent the Congress and, consequently, the Constitution?
Who does he think he is, the second Messiah, the Second Coming? What his actions intimate, though, is that he is or will, if left unchallenged, become the first American Dictator. What’s he up to?
- Many of us think that this guy is so full of himself that he just cannot see what the ultimate outcome of his questionably legal, unchallenged actions might be.
- Others of us think that he knows exactly what he’s doing and that is to take us into a socialist, Euro-type nation at the least or, more probably, a stronger socialist dictatorship.
- Then there are those of us who think he is nothing but a lackey, a stooge, for those who have been pushing him, influencing him and directing him throughout his life.
Simply look at the people with whom he has associated in college, as a community activist and in politics. Just look at the people he appointed or tried to appoint to his administration. Look at the folks he has appointed to unelected positions. Look at the people who supported him in his earliest steps into politics. I won’t list them here. Those lists of people and their backgrounds are all over the Internet.
My point here is that it doesn’t matter which it is. They all lead to the same thing – the same result. If allowed to continue unabated, the actions of Barack Hussein Obama and his obscene administration and pack of followers spells the demise of our country as a Federal Republic. It is the end of our country, as we know it.
Can you imagine? With his left hand on the Bible and his right hand in the air, twice, he swore, “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
The first time he stood there was because many of us had hope and thought he meant what he said. The second time he stood there was simply the fault of the “Stupid Majority.” Both times, in my estimation he lied!
Today, it is more important than ever for us to keep our collective eye on all his Executive Orders. Rumor has it that he will use EO to control, or change the rules for firearms purchases, ownership and registration in such away that are directly intended to circumvent Congress. We are expecting to see an EO to raise the debt ceiling, which will again circumvent the Congress – the legality of which is seriously questionable.
As time passes, it has become more and more evident that BHO is just not all that interested in enforcing some of our existing laws, reinforcing some of our historically strongest international friendships, reducing spending, improving our economy by allowing job creation, or even preserving our Constitution.
It’s time for all of us to take a stand that clearly proclaims “our pledge” to preserve, protect and defend our Constitution, our nation. Write your representatives and senators. Please, take a stand for our country – your country! Take A Freekin Stand for once in your life – the most important time in your life!
