CERDAFIED-What is congress waiting for? They have sufficient cause to impeach Obama, but do they have the will? America has the will. By and large, the voice of dissent drowns out the whimpers of those still hoping for some miraculous deliverance of a single kept promise. This false prophet and his ivory tower have endured despite mass objection.
If Congress takes no action, they cannot separate themselves from the actions of this president. Every stroke of the presidential pen that reduces our liberties is a stroke of their own pen. Congress is not a mere witness to a crime but a participant.
America must seek its own remedy. We cannot afford the total transference of our power before we take corrective measures. As we marched peacefully, the federal government armed itself against us. When we spoke truths they labeled us terrorists.
When we demanded action from our Congress, they pointed at each other with blaming fingers.
Don’t expect to be rescued from this. You must rescue you. Or learn to accept this totalitarian regime’s attempt to control virtually all aspects of America’s social life including our economy, education, art, science, health, property ownership, ecology, religion, private life and the morals of children.
If Congress cannot be persuaded, when so much is on the line, then they are furthering the agenda to separate you from your rights. To correct this path, it is not enough to impeach Obama. We must repeal every law, every executive order, and every treaty that this President signed.
Knowing that our government has been plotting a “New World Order” since WW ll, I would not be satisfied until we uproot it’s strangle hold on America. If Iceland can cleanse itself from a corrupt banking system and a complacent government, so can we.
There is ample proof that our public officials are disregarding Congress. Watch this video of the Senate Armed Services Committee, on March 7, 2012, as Defense Secretary Leon Panetta declares that the military doesn’t need Congressional approval to take military action. It can be authorized by the UN or NATO.
The White House Administration routinely dismisses the powers of the Congress because the Congress routinely allows it. The Congress did not value the checks and balances put in place by our Founding Fathers. They stood by when our FREE PRESS was dismantled. They stood by as our FREE SPEECH was relegated to useless zones.
They prospered by the corporate takeover of our government. If the White House Administration will rob Americans, they will rob Congress of its powers too. Yet the Congress sits and waits.
During a congressional committee hearing about the constitutional limits imposed on the presidency, Congressman Steve King of Iowa remarked, “The founding fathers envisioned that each branch of government would jealousy protect its constitutional power and authority.”
Michael Cannon of the CATO Institute, Health Policy Studies Director stated, “If the people come to believe that the government is no longer constrained by the laws, they will conclude that neither are they.”
It was suggested during the hearing that the people could hold a constitutional convention by the people and bypass Congress. That idea was swatted down by King, who retorted, “Why would an executive with such disrespect for the constitution today honor an amended constitution from a constitutional convention?”
Jonathan Turley, George Washington University Law School Professor gave a sobering response, “I have great trepidation of where we are headed because we are creating a new system here, something that is not designed. We have this rising 4th branch, this system is tripartite. The center of gravity is shifting and that makes it unstable. And within the system you have the rise of an uber presidency. There could be no greater danger for the individual liberty. And I think the framers would be horrified by that shift because everything they dedicated themselves to was creating this orbital balance. We’ve lost it.”
Michael Cannon gave the final warning, “There is one last thing to which the people can resort, if the government does not respect the restraints that the constitution places on the government. Abraham Lincoln talked about our right to alter our government or our revolutionary right to overthrow it.”
Meanwhile back at the ranch, Obama is rewriting the Affordable Care Act by Ad hoc after refusing to discuss changes with the Congress during the government shut down. Mind you, America wants it repealed, not delayed.
“That is a very dangerous sort of thing for the president to do, to wantonly ignore the laws,” Cannon added, “to try to impose obligations upon people that the legislature did not approve.”
It is equally dangerous for the Congress to ignore the will of the people, who seek an end to this flagrant disregard to the constitution.
