You may not like the title of this post, but it is exactly what Obama has claimed when he claimed the authority to assassinate American citizens simply because he “suspects” them of being linked to Al-Qaeda. Only a dictator has the power to kill his subjects without due process. Only in a dictatorship do people have no rights, no access to due process. Therefore, when Obama – through his DOJ – claimed the power to kill Americans on a whim, he declared himself to be a dictator.
Here is a story that illustrates my point:
But the most controversial drone strike took place on Oct. 14, 2011, when 16-year-old Abdulrahman was killed by U.S. forces.
Family of the Denver-born teenager say he had no ties to terrorist organizations and was unjustly targeted because of his father.
Now, I don’t know whether this child had connections to terrorists or not, but that’s the point! Our constitution guaranteed a right to trial to establish guilt or innocence before we have our rights and liberties taken from us by society. Our founders wrote this into our constitution specifically to prevent Obama from doing exactly what he is doing. The constitution is the supreme law of the land. Therefore, to do what he did, Obama had to violate the constitution, which means he violated the law, and the only way one can do that is if they declare or assume dictatorial powers.
Ergo, Obama has declared himself dictator. If you don’t like that, too bad! It’s still true. The question now, whether you agree or not, is what do we do about this?
But wait, there’s one more thing to consider. If we accept everything Obama has asserted as justification for assassinating Americans, then we need to face the fact that Obama — himself — has met that criteria. He has ordered the direct military aid to “associated forces” of Al-Qaeda, both when he helped the Libyan rebels and now in connection to the Benghazi-Syria gun-running operations. So why are we protecting a man who — by his own argument s– should be the object of some special attention from a U.S. drone? Mind you, I am NOT calling for harm to Obama, only pointing out that he is guilty of the same, exact activities he is assassinating Americans for based on his “suspicions.” That kind of hypocrisy is synonymous with dictatorship.
[Note: if you are one who thinks Obama's actions are justified by the fact that we are at war with Al-Qaeda, STOP! You are wrong. 1 -- we never declared war. 2 -- Obama said it's not war, it's a "kinetic military action." Since Progressives like word games, this undermines any claim to war he may make. 3 -- Obama told us the "war" with Al-Qaeda is over because he had "decimated" Al-Qaeda. No, there is no justification for Obama assuming dictatorial powers. But it is an example of what happens when you allow your language to be destroyed for the purposes of manipulating public opinion.]
