Are We Serious? Yes, Some Of Us Are.

As I sat pondering this my video went viral!

“America’s chickens… are comin’ home to roost..”

The quote of the subtitle here was made by one Jeremiah Wright, Obama's old America hating pastor. Our document of law in this nation is still the US Constitution, as badly trampled as it is. Obama and the left in this nation see it as irrelevant but it has never been more relevant than it is today and the coming days. People confuse themselves at times by calling our nation a democracy which it is not and never has been. It is a Republic of independent states who should be self-governing states with a limited federal government whose powers are enumerated in the US Constitution. It is my opinion that push is about to come to shove. It may almost have to be that way if our Republic is to survive. What I am about to point out is history, some distant and some very recent about the progressive movement and our Republic. You see progressives see the solution to our problems as a matter of controlling the people through an all powerful federal government. That flies directly in the face of the US Constitution.

Let me tune this up a bit by taking a brief visit back a few years concerning what then Speaker-of- the-House said when asked if Obamacare was crafted in accordance with the US Constitution. Bear in mind this is the same woman who said "we have to pass the bill to find out what is in it." Here's what she said and is part of the headline here and where this article leads.

Are You Serious? It Was A Serious Question But She Scoffed At It.

She ultimately answered "yes" that she was sure. Since she didn't really know what was in the bill I just attribute her reply to the source - her. I've heard that ignorance is bliss and for three years now Obama and his progressive minions have ignored that very question. But that's not to say that they shouldn't have known that the issue was going to end up exactly where it belongs in the United States Supreme Court. That is the final arbiter of what is, or isn't, constitutional according to the law of this land. The founder's intended that there be a separation of powers to insure against tyranny, not to invite it.

When the question arrived before the Supreme Court, the administration's advocate seemed bewildered at times that the individual mandate was being questioned as it was. Why I'm uncertain of because up until Obama the federal government had never made it a requirement to buy anything under penalty of a fine, imprisonment or both. That's way too much power to bestow upon any federal government. But put Obama's lamentations before he was elected about the US Constitution in perspective. It seems to bewilder him why the document says what the federal government "cannot" do to its citizens, not what it can do for us. The founders were specific about the wording. They lived under a tyrant and knew perfectly well what the misuse of power is all about. There is nothing more that the progressive mentality wants than for the citizens of this nation to not do for themselves what the government can do for them. That is until the money runs out and bottom goes with it.

It's Time To Break The Silence Silent Majority

There are now two important cases before the court. Obamacare and Arizona's immigration law. I'm not sure why the Department of Justice pushed that last one in there other than for purely political reasons. From oral arguments, again presented by an incompetent government solicitor, the vote on that one might be 8-0 since Kagan decided to recuse herself. She should also have done so with Obamacare but that's a whole different story.

Why did the founders create the Supreme Court? It is the guardian of law and acts in that capacity if, and when, we end up with an out of control Congress or Executive Branch who disregards what the Constitution says. The founders understood the danger of brutal force that can be wrought by an out of control federal government upon the citizenry. They had lived it. Along the course of history we have witnessed it happen in other nations and tried to assist in righting that wrong. So why are we now so complacent as we watch the pieces fall into place headed by Barak Hussein Obama who has no regard for the separation of powers that are there for a very specific reason?

The question up begs itself. What will happen if the high court rules against Obama and his progressive minions who passed a bill without ever having read it? What if they say that the federal government cannot require the citizens of this country to buy anything, as is the case of the individual mandate? And/or they determine that a state has the right to make the distinction between being a "citizen" or a "non-citizen" which the Arizona bill was carefully crafted to address to protect itself and the citizens of that state. They read the bill before they passed it. It is a relief at this point that Obama hasn't been able to stack the court. We need to make sure he doesn't ever have that opportuniuty I might add. Back to the question because if you don't see it coming you should.

Observe Obama's divide and conquer style of the present campaign. He has the War On Women, The War On The Rich, The Dog Wars, The War On Religion and no telling where he'll go next. I see The War On The Separation Of Powers looming over the horizon myself. Pelsoi has already proposed amending the First Amendment to better suit her purposes. He has already, on several occasions, publicly condemned the court for doing their job under the US Constitution. Franklin D. Roosevelt was the last progressive to take up that banner. He didn't have much regard for the separation of powers himself. But the checks and balances system prevailed and the US Congress halted FDR in his tracks in that case.

Eternal Vigilance

Just set the stage after what we have recently seen or are presently seeing. Obama is intent on dividing our nation along class warfare lines. He has become The Great Divider in his effort to be reelected. He hasn't much of a record to run on, the economy is still gasping for air and gas prices are making the people very uncomfortable. What will surely happen if the Supreme Court rules on constitutional issues when Obama has such total disregard for that document?

What he will initiate is The War On The Supreme Court. It will be well financed let there be no doubt about that. Obama is good at currying favor with segments of the electorate. I call it what it is - vote buying. His policies are intended to curry favor. It's all about maintaining power in order to push his hidden agenda, or even those not so hidden. All those little factions will line up behind his bashing. The AFL-CIO, the SEIU, the public sector unions, the Occupy Wall Street crowd and the entire progressive movement that has infiltrated the halls of Congress will jump on the band wagon. They'll be lining up to oppose the very thing the founders intended - the separation of powers.

Put them all in a pot, stir them up and what do you have? "Stuff people" is what you end up with. They could care less about the US Constitution and the separation of powers. They will crow for that free health care. They see it as their right. They will demand that we just let Lottie, Dottie and Everybody cross our borders at their discretion and not according to the laws on the books. How inhumane of us to call them "illegals" which is exactly what they are.

Power is an aphrodisiac. Power also corrupts and absolute power absolutely corrupts. There are those who walk among us who don't care how much power is given to our "limited" federal government. They just clamor for everything to be provided free of charge.

But the fact remains. There is no free lunch. Someone is paying for it. As long as it isn't them they could care less.

Pelosi already alluded to changing the US Constitution to better fit her view of the world. Since Obama can't campaign on his record of failures expect to see the Democrats. starting in June if the high court strikes down Obamacare and the Arizona case, to campaign hard and heavy and damned the torpedoes full speed ahead for "Constitutional and Judicial" reform.

The problem isn't the US Constitution stupid. It's electing people to positions of power who have no regard for it. Instead they build a base of free loaders who just want what they feel is rightfully theirs by virtue of breathing the same air as the rest of us. Harsh? You bet it is but also very true.

So are we serious about remaining a constitutional Republic or not? Yes Nancy, some of us are serious about that issue. The silent majority will once again have to speak as we did in 2010. Straightening out the mess progressives create is always a chore. But like the children on farms, we are very capable of doing the work.

Remember In November!

As Always,

Well said FP and if we the people continue to be silent the constitution will continue to be stomped on. I really wish the conservative leaders will pipe up and make those comparisons because the republic as founded is coming down to the wire.

The only downside to the SCOTUS turning over Obamacare (and possibly so for the AZ Immigration Law) is that Obama-rama could try to use them as political ammunition in his bid for re-election. Not that I think it would matter...

But Sir Frog....Bush and Cheney created the unpatriotic and unconstitutional patriot act.

As much as I hate Obama - I can't get down with the "left v right" paradigm, not when both parties have demolished the Constitution.

Wesman - And yes, Obama signed it's extension. I don't care what Bush did. That is in the past. This is about Obama and the progressives. Not all Dems are progressives and there are still some sane thinking liberals in the nation.

The old blame Bush routine gets tiresome. This is mainly based in a historical context and the separation of powers. Read it for what it is worth.

I think most folks who have actually read the Constitution and tried to understand it are deeply concerned with the attitudes we see in our elected officials. And yes, we ARE serious about taking the steps we can to prevent some of their ill-advised (but honey-pot style attractive) works from being added to the bureaucratic burden on taxpayers. In fact we are so serious that the additional steps to prevent this from happening to our future generations are being openly discussed on the Internet, by both loosely organized groups of ordinary people, and by activist groups who seek specific changes.

Pelosi can mock the seriousness of it all she wants. In fact I hope she continues to do so since it serves to motivate those who despise the Elitism she stands for.

Remember in November.

If there truly is a plan to destroy America, it is being followed to the letter. But that darn Constitution seems to stand in the way of driving home that last coffin nail. I would be pretty sure there is a group looking for every conceivable way to get around this problem. The something for nothing crowd is growing in size as generations of children grow up. They were raised this way, taught this in school, and listened to their parents whine about how unfair things are for their entire childhood. Do they even cover the Constitution in school anymore or has that been outlawed?

My second rule is is "don't play the race card." You liberal lips are famous for it. I won't tolerate that either.

@mio cid - I'm curious where in this hub you found anything pertaining to racism or xenophobes? I see this word xenophobes used frequently by liberals, and had to look it up to see what it meant. According to the dictionary it means "Fear of Foreigners." I have no idea what in this hub would have led you to the conclusion that the author or anyone leaving comments is racist, bigoted, or a xenophobe? Come to think of it, you were the only one who even brought this up.....


Stu 4 years ago

A sad state of affairs, but what you describe is quite accurate. And the Supreme Court may be less protection than we need; while liberals on the court are outnumbered, it doesn't mean the balance are constructionist (except for Thomas), it just means they're not liberal. Sadly Obama is purposely trying to make America fail, just like it says in the video. After another four years, if he gets it, he may achieve his wish.

Hey Mio,

Like most libby's, you're deflecting. The main post had nothing to do with race. It was a condemnation of Obama's economic and energy policies that are destroying our national wealth, and policies related to personal freedom that are turning our nation into a jackboot socialist state.

If you are here illegally, then yes, you should self deport. That's not racism either - that's just obeying the law.

And for your edification, only about 2% of Congress is conservative. Virtually the entirety of the GOP are centrists. And conservatives are not racist; if they were, how come they count among their ranks Bobby Jindal, Allen West, Tim Scott, Nikki Haley, etc.

Enforcing immigration laws is not "racist." It has nothing to do with race. The point is, if yu want to live in America, no matter what your race is, apply for resident alien status or citizenship LEGALLY.

BTW, would you support open borders in Uruguay where anyone from any nation can just "invite" themselves in indefinitely WITHOUT making the proper filings and being approved? Or is it just the US that owes this largesse to the rest of the world?

Frog Prince, excellent blog, a great lesson within... I have a copy of the Constitution that was given to my by a British Sailor on Guam, he said I was lucky and blessed to live under the laws within... To be a free people was a blessing to be valued more than gold... I read it all the time... Thanks for your article, time to read it again and follow the Founding Fathers vision of our Great Republic...

Aw-w-w-w...as usual, I missed all the off-topic "fun"; y'all squared everything away 'fore I could git here!

As for the Supreme Court, I've never been so glad we have such a critter in place as I am this year. And I suspect the Justices feel much the same way--they MUST have been feeling the strain Obama has put on the system.

Not to mention (which you did) the various insults heaped on the head of SCOTUS by POTUS...until he gets hauled up short this November by VOTE-US.

Remember in November!

Pelosi's arrogant disregard for The Constitution is both sickeningly and chilling! The left has virtually no respect for the Constitution, thier movement is defined by a rejection of a Constitutionally limited government and the ideals in the Constitution.

I do take issue with your statement that the Supreme Court is the final arbitrator of Constitutional questions. According to the Founders, the final arbitrator of the Constitution, are the poeple themselves as expressed through thier elected representatives.Both the legislative and excutive branches have an equal responsibility to uphold the Constitution as the Judicial branch does! If the Supreme Court gets out of control, the excutive branch can refusing to enforce the courts decisions and the legislator can refuse to fund the enforcement of the decision.

As a Californian I still have to deal with Pelosi, Waters, Feinstein, Boxer and Brown. They used to say, that every radical idea or law passed in California may have appeared radical or ridiculous at the time - but it seems like it was always picked up by the rest of the nation. GOD Forbid!!

Fred - I really shouldn't have to post one of the cardinal rules of blogging - Stay On Topic - but I may have to in the future, especially as we move closer to the election.

drbj - I'm going to vote for change this November - from Obama on down.

teaches - I'm just wondering how they got that frog to sit still like that.

wba - My statement was meant in the context of when Congress writes a law that violates the US Constitution. There are members of Congress, caught on tape, that openly admit the Constitution isn't a barrier. That has to change.

Margie - Remember the power of prayer.

halfcord - From day-to-day I'm never sure what Obama or his minions are going to say next. Never a dull moment. Bush was boring and I'd like to go back to boring after this next election but there is a lot to straighten out. We get more California transplants here in Texas every day.
