    I have to admit this person makes some good points...  hmm
    This group wants more people to stand up and admit these points are valid as happening...do you admit that?




    Obama Executive Branch Openly Denigrates the Constitution

    TELL CONGRESS:  REMOVE THE TYRANT – IMPEACH NOW

        Obama attacks Libya without consulting Congress – Obama Administration surrenders sovereign US war-making to foreign powers and international authorities

        ObamaCare ruled unconstitutional and ordered to halt by Federal Court –Obama Administration states it will implement regardless of Federal Courts
         
        Congress determines Cap & Trade unconstitutional and refuses to pass –Obama Administration orders EPA to enact provisions regardless of Congress
         
        Oil Drilling Moratorium declared unconstitutional, ban lifted by Federal Court – Obama Administration continues to prevent drilling regardless of Federal Courts
         
        Defense of Marriage Act overwhelmingly passed by the 104th Congress and signed into law by former President Bill Clinton – Obama Administration announces unilaterally its Department of Justice it will no longer enforce the law
         
        Arizona SB 1070 Immigration Enforcement Act overwhelmingly passed by AZ Legislature – Obama Justice Department brings unconstitutional lawsuit against Arizona state
         
        LTC Terrance Lakin, US Army seeks confirmation of lawful orders from CinC, is court martialed, sentenced to Leavenworth Prison – Obama and DOJ stonewall all proof of presidential eligibility under U.S. Constitution


    It is now clear the Obama Administration is actively working to overthrow the Constitutional protections granted by our Founding Fathers through the separation of powers.  There can be no denying this Administration is in complete contempt of the U.S. Constitution, and in active defiance of the expressed Will of the People, and the Judicial and Congressional branches of the government – in effect replacing the Rule of Law with the seedbed of tyranny.

    Cleon Skousen, in his book The 5,000 Year Leap, lays out a vivid explanation of the separation and balance of powers, illustrated with a three headed eagle.

        Central head = the law-making or legislative function with two eyes – the House and the Senate – and these must both see reasonably eye-to-eye on any piece of legislation before it can become law.
         
        Left head = the Administrative or Executive Department with all authority centered in a single strong President, operating within a clearly defined framework of limited power.
         
        Right head = the Judiciary which was assigned the task of acting as an objective guardian of the Constitution and an interpreter of its principles as originally designed by the Founders.
         
        Left Wing = the problem-solving wing attached to the Executive; sensitive to the perceived needs of the people, whose appointees devise elaborate plans to solve these problems.
         
        Right wing = attached to the Congress; has the responsibility of conserving the nation's resources and the people's freedom. One function is to assess the proposed programs of the left wing to determine propriety, affordability and the effect upon freedom these proposals might have.

    The genius, according to Skousen, of the American system is not only the separation of powers but the fact that all three branches operate through a central system.  The Founders carefully integrated these three departments so that each was coordinated with the others and could not function independently: crafting  "Coordination without Consolidation."  Balance is essential, for if both wings fulfill their assigned duties the American eagle will fly straight and high.  However, if either wing becomes overbearing or distorted, the American eagle of governance will drift toward anarchy or tyranny.

    Unfortunately, through its repeated lawlessness and anti-republicanism, the Obama Administration has willfully desecrated the Constitutional balance established by our Forefathers.  This defiance of the Rule of Law has withered the system of checks and balances and established a despotic Executive branch. The "imperial" presidency with its "czars" and unaccountable bureaucracy is so powerful that neither Congress nor the Judiciary seems able to stop our inevitable slide into Socialism, or even a full dictatorship.  Today, the Left wing and Executive branch completely dwarf the other departments that were intended to hold presidential power balanced and in check.

    If we are to stop the relentless march to Marxism and a complete dictatorship headed by Obama and his Leftist revolutionaries, CONGRESS MUST IMPEACH NOW!  We cannot afford to give Obama even one more day to further illicitly consolidate power.  WE MUST ACT NOW!

        The point is that it's on a relentless path AWAY from American patriotism and the standards of decency we've formerly held dear.

          hasn't every communist (marxist) country been fascist?

          The two go hand in hand. Fascism requires that everyone pay the few on top, and communism does the same!

            No - not at all. Fascism is actually very close to the more exteme views of the Far Right, Tea Party, Birchers - whatever you want to call them. Fascism is in fact the bi-polar opposite of Marxism. Both extremes tend to produce the same oppressive results.

            Read "Mein Kampf" sometime Evan - maybe you have already read it. Substitute the words "Hispanic" or "illegal immigrant" for the word "Jew," change some of the cultural terms around, and you have a surprising match for what the Tea Party puts out in their literature.

            This isn't new. The Birchers in the late 50's (1958) and the 1960's preached the same crap. Back then the catalyst was the Civil Rights Movement. Now it's a Recession, a black president, financial and healthcare reform. It's an old horse with a new saddle.

                No, they were not. They used the word "Socialist" in their name, certainly, but their policies were so far away from the tenets of socialism that they may as well have been called socialism's opposite. A better look at socialism in government would be the current Scandinavian governments (in particular Norway or Denmark) or elements of the current British government.

                There are actually books on this subject, but in my opinion the best is Paxton's The Anatomy of Fascism, which explains: "Another supposed essential character of fascism is its anticapitalist, antibourgeois animus.  ...Whenever fascist parties acquired power, however, they did nothing to carry out these anticapitalist threats. By contrast, they enforced with the utmost violence and thoroughness their threats against socialism.  Street fights over turf with young communists were among their most powerful propaganda images. Once in power, fascist regimes banned strikes, dissolved independent labor unions, lowered wage earners' purchasing power, and showered money on armaments industries, to the immense satisfaction of employers."

              Read "mein kampf" and substitute "rich" for "jew" and notice the similarities.

                Good point. The Germans (Nazis) didn't have the "uber rich" as we have today.

                Take the top 20 of the Forbes Wealthiest Americans list and you add up the weath - it's over $300 billion dollars. Not bad. I have no problem with wealth whatsoever, but it's hard to deny that America's wealth isn't concentrated in the hands of a very few people.

                  DTR, were you having trouble with double negatives, or are you trying to assert that America's wealth isn't concentrated in the hands of a few?

                    Prescriptive linguist or descriptive linguist? lolll.. It's more stylistics than an ungrammatical sentence. The verb "deny" while being in the affirmative actually is a "negative verb," n'est-ce pas?

    Is it some kind of a contest to see how many half-truths and outright lies you can string together?

    How do you score it and what's the prize??

    I would suggest what the prize SHOULD be - but I then would have to join LaLo in time out.
