Points to Ponder XXVIII

The stories:

Obama immigration order: Does ‘audacity of hope’ mean unchecked presidential power?

Faced with a Republican Congress that seems stubborn to a fault and content to see Obama fail, America’s chief executive has decided to grab what some are calling an unprecedented rein on executive prerogative in order to move his political objectives down the field.

Are We in Revolutionary Times?

Legally, President Obama has reiterated the principle that he can pick and choose which U.S. laws he wishes to enforce (see his decision to reverse the order of the Chrysler creditors, his decision not to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act, and his administration’s contempt for national-security confidentiality and Senate and House subpoenas to the attorney general). If one individual can decide to exempt nearly a million residents from the law — when he most certainly could not get the law amended or repealed through proper legislative or judicial action — then what can he not do? Obama is turning out to be the most subversive chief executive in terms of eroding U.S. law since Richard Nixon.

My question (and I am deadly serious about this one):

If you have ever worn our nation’s uniform, do you remember your oath? And do you remember it has no expiration date?

  1. We are in pre revolutionary times, a re-election of the USURPER in Chief will fan the flames, and by the Spring of 2013 there will be armed American citizens marching on the White House to remove him. I am so looking forward to seeying 1 million armed American citizens coming to the gates of the people’s house. What will the secret service do? NOT a dammed thing, they can’t hold back that amount of people if they tried……….and no American soldier will turn his weapon upon his own family………..Get ready USURPER, your time is coming either in November via the ballot box, or in the Spring of 2013 via a revolution. We are ready to fix this Republic one way or the other…………The time is now!

  2. US constitution adopted 1789.
    Article II, Sections 1:

    Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:–“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.”

    Article II. Section. 2.

    … he may require the Opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in each of the executive Departments, upon any Subject relating to the Duties of their respective Offices …

    • Texas,

      Doug doesn’t believe the Constitution means what it says. To him, what the lawyers and judges say it means is more important. You see, Doug is one of those who think the govt. is over the people. He is spawn of Hobbes.

      • Anarchy is what they really wish for. “they” never liked the rules. They couldn’t get a majority of Americans to knowingly follow them because their principles and ideals are “slavery” of man to the state. So they must lie to Americans and create anarchy do they may change the rules after collapse.

        • Slavery and anarchy are not the same things and they work in opposite directions. I think you might be trying to say they want to create anarchy as a means of making the people their slaves so they can then control society. Would that be correct? If so, I agree. If not, please try to expound on the point you’re trying to make because I didn’t understand it. Thanks 🙂
