The Unconstitutional Acquisition of Power
The president expressed frustration, saying we have got to scour everything and push the envelope in finding things we can do on our own. Link
The envelope Mr. Obama is called the Constitution. IT has been tested .... in peace and in war ... we love it; it is ours and it has been fought for by heroes past, present and will be protected in the future.
In February 2011, Mr. Obama directed the Justice Department to stop defending the Defense of Marriage Act, which bars federal recognition of same-sex marriages, against constitutional challenges. Previously, the administration had urged lawmakers to repeal it, but had defended their right to enact it." Link
SO you will defend those parts of the LAW that you find attractive and cease to defend the rest.....
I refuse to take no for an answer, Mr. Obama declared, beneath a We Cant Wait banner. When Congress refuses to act and as a result hurts our economy and puts people at risk, I have an obligation as president to do what I can without them. Link
You have the obligation to accept the CONSTITUTIONAL Restrictions on all branches of government.
Today is US Constitution Day where we celebrate the establishment of the Powers granted to the government by the People of the United States.
As the tenth Amendment states "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
We celebrate that the Founders, flaws and all, recognized that the powers of government should be delegated to it but that these powers could be withdrawn and they were not finite or infinite.
WE THE PEOPLE have rights; governments have powers. Our rights are God given; their powers are People given. The government’s powers can be repossessed by the People; the Peoples’ Rights cannot be.
Remember Citizens that the most efficient form of government is one that dictates to the citizen. Democracy is by its nature best when it is inefficient, when the leaders must argue amongst themselves before they can pass laws over us.
We can lay back and become the lethargic dependents of a government happy to rule over us while passing to their friends the rewards of a command economy where they command and we acquiesce.
It is governmental agencies/entities controlling people on the absurd notion that is their business to do so .... that we lack the capabilities to exist without them.
On this Constitution Day celebrate that we are “WE THE PEOPLE”.

Let's hope we can recover from it
