I just reread the Constitution of the United States of America and found that the Constitution directly and clearly employs techniques to preserve our liberties and privacy. There is a direct limitation as to the authority of the Federal Government, limiting it to only those things specifically listed. Another reality is the explicit restriction of power through the Bill of Rights. It is quite clear that the Founders desired to use the basic structure of government to protect the people. They separated the branches of government to provide checks and balances and gave most of the power to the individual states which our current Federal Government seems to miss and seems to think it has the right to mandate everything to the states and the citizens. The Constitution prohibits that expressly.
When Barack Obama was sworn in as President, he swore an oath to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” Article II, Section 3 directs the President to “take care that the Laws be faithfully executed.” Sadly, that was a myth with his administration. We realized that in the many scandals and infringements he and his team exercised. We saw it in the DOJ, IRS, Fast and Furious, Ben Ghazi, and a myriad of other things. Who was the Vice President? Joe Biden the man the Democrats advanced in this past presidential election. America are we that stupid, ignorant, or blind?
In 2011 the Department of Homeland Security announced that it would halt the deportation proceedings against a multitude of illegals. Those attending school, those who have family in the military or are primarily responsible for family members’ care. They were allowed to apply for work permits. That in itself was a violation of the existing Federal Laws. Another example of Obama’s thumbing his nose at the Constitution and the authority of Congress is his implementation of the Dream Act via Executive order even though the Act DID NOT PASS Congress and IS NOT SUPPORTED by the majority of the American people. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris want to go far beyond Obama’s efforts and literally turn American into a turnstile allowing ingress and egress for whoever desires whenever they desire.
Obama’s job and that of any president is described in the Constitution. The president is not and should never be allowed to perform as a Super Legislator who implements laws when a bill he supports fails in Congress. That type of governance is a flagrant abuse of the doctrine of “prosecutorial discretion,” and it amounts to lawlessness. It is an impeachable offense, but Congress sat on their hands and did nothing and will do nothing if any Democrat operates in like manner.
Obama spoke to the National Council of La Raza in July of 2011 and said that he would not go around Congress and implement immigration reform or grant amnesty because “that’s not how our democracy functions.” Amazingly three short weeks later that is exactly what he did with his executive order. Where was Congress in all this? The President no matter who he or she might be is sworn to “uphold and defend the Constitution.” When the Constitution is ignored and violated the question I always ask is, “Where was and where is Congress?”
I have often declared that a liberal leftist in the White House is a lesser problem than the spinelessness of the Republicans in Congress. Those cowards who are unwilling or afraid to take on the violator. I don’t care if it is out of fear of being labeled a racist or any other moniker. They have a job to do and it is their sworn duty to uphold the Constitution and obey the laws of the land. Therefore, I say, “Congress, Do Your Job!” We the people expect it and if we would make our dissatisfaction abundantly clear in each election, we would get their attention. We could be in for a very difficult four-years if Congress does not do their jobs!
That causes me to ask, “This is still America, isn’t it?” We must never allow any president or politician to operate in total violation of the Constitution and exhibit utter disrespect for that document, our system of government, and the American people. If a politician demonstrates they are more concerned with achieving their ideological agenda than serving America and the American people that politician needs to be shown the door.
A quote from history is appropriate here: “What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance?” – Thomas Jefferson
Sadly, for over 50 years we have been the proverbial frog in the pan of water. We have sat and soaked while the radical left, socialist, communist, Marxist, and those desiring the destruction of America and the establishment of a World Government absent of individual liberties and rights have been working tirelessly. The words from history uttered by one of our Founders should shock us into reality: “Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”– Benjamin Franklin
Let me give you three more quotes:
“A general dissolution of principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy. While the people are virtuous, they cannot be subdued; but when once they lose their virtue then will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader.” – Samuel Adams
“Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States.” – Noah Webster
“Give me liberty or give me death.” – Patrick Henry
This is still America, right? If so, then don’t you think that it is high time that we awaken from our slumber and begin to build the fire of resistance through all legitimate means and begin to put more pressure on our elected officials than they have ever experienced. Maybe we should put pressure on the pastors as well that they recognize the hour in which we live and call people to repentance and yes, even identify the immorality of many of the programs of the Federal Government.
Please don’t cry the “Separation of Church and State Argument.” The actual language and intent as has been clearly revealed in the writings of those putting forth the Amendment was to prevent the Federal Government from forming a National Religion and giving favoritism to it over the others. They desperately wanted every citizen to be able to have Freedom of Religion along with our other freedoms. There comes a time when no matter what the government says we must obey God rather than man. I believe that this is that Time!
If you believe that we must have change in government from the local to the national level then join the efforts of the multitudes of groups already in existence and let’s develop a unified voice and take individual responsibility for Changing the Condition of government in America and restoring it to what the Founders envisioned and initiated.
Please get involved and pray, pray, pray, work, work, work, and stand, stand, stand. God bless you and God bless America
