Obama’s Government of Oppression

The founding of our nation occurred in 1789 with the ratification of the Constitution by the several States; everything up to that point was prelude and included a bloody civil and revolutionary war against our compatriots, and King George III, the world’s only superpower of their day.

George WashingtonWith the drafting of the Constitution, our founders understood that government was raw power instituted to compel citizens to follow the legislated laws of Congress. This was manifest by three branches, envisioned to be a check and balance on any other branch of our government. As well as a balancing act to check these powers from being abused by any one person or branch to the detriment of all, and most of all to check power devolving to someone that would emulate the trappings of a monarch.

This was so crucial that John Jay who would later become our first Chief Justice of the Supreme Court would reduce to pen his concerns in a letter to George Washington that would lay out the argument for the office of President. Filled by none other than a ‘natural born citizen’ this is the only office in our entire federal system that has this requirement.

The words that Mr. Jay chose were so deferential and conveyed the esteem that he held for George Washington with, “permit me to hint” the reverence that he held for our father of this nation leaps from the page and can be felt as well as read, his exact words follow:

Permit me to hint, whether it would not be wise & seasonable to provide a strong check to the admission of Foreigners into the administration of our national Government; and to declare expresly that the Command in chief of the american army shall not be given to, nor devolve on, any but a natural born Citizen.

 This was the government of our founding.

ObamaCompare that with what we have today, the abuse of power by Obama and a paralyzed Congress that cowers in the corner and has allowed every trespass on our rights to occur under their watch. Then to add insult to injury this very same august body gives every penny that this tyrant demands, then wastes as he sees fit to our detriment. The wisdom of John Jay’s words and the requirement in our constitution for the office of president were prescient, as they knew that some day one would come forward to challenge this requirement and our system of government.

When our president does not know what in fact our system of government is at the State level we have to wonder where it is he has been his entire life? Telling the assembled governors at the Governors Conference practically two weeks ago “he did not trust them to make decisions about education, transportation, and infrastructure” within their own States must have left them absolutely stunned; these men and women of character who lead their States people. Clearly, this nation has a huge problem and it sits in the White House, with an incompetent ne’er do well that does not even know how many States make up this nation…he is under the impression it is 57 or is it 60?

Much less how we govern ourselves.

The abuse of power from this president is remarkable, as every agency of our federal government is used to oppress our citizens and suppress any other viewpoint other than the president and his party; many of them are having second thoughts and running from him as well. How have we fallen so far and so low as to allow this to happen, that we now have a tyrant that sits and dictates to us in contrast to Abraham Lincoln’s eloquent words of the Gettysburg Address about our nations people, “that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth” I am fond of saying a “free and able people.”

Ever allow such madness to occur!

To correct this course to our destruction we must impeach Obama for his many crimes and abuses of power and amend the Constitution so that these abuses never occur again, passing laws and elections will not fix this issue, as our government is no longer constrained by the Constitution. We must repeal as a minimum the 16th Amendment to defund this bloated federal leviathan that is gorging on the fruits of the peoples labor and end the entitlement mindset that has destroyed this nation’s desire for reaping the fruits of our own labors and a honest days work for an honest wage.

We must restore the vital missing check on ongoing federal powers, by repealing the 17th Amendment, and allow the States to direct, appoint and recall Senators once again and turn the Senate back into a deliberative body instead of an Uber House of Representatives with six-year terms. Can anyone make a cogent argument that Obama would be in the Oval Office if not for the 17th Amendment. Even the scandal and corruption plagued Illinois legislature would have sent a blind Seeing Eye dog to Washington before Obama, as they knew he was Mr. Voting Present and did not have the character and fortitude for national service.

Please get involved with the Convention of States project or any other organization that is working towards amending the Constitution in your area, to place this nation back once again into the constitutional box where it belongs instead of the bloated monster it has become.
