Do Constitutional Limits On Presidential Power Still Matter?
What Are The Constitutional Limits on Presidential Power?
Unfortunately Obama does not think that any Constitutional limits on presidential power apply to him. He seems to think (and has been getting away with it) that any Constitutional limits on presidential power are just words written in some old, obsolete document that can be changed if he so desires.
Obama Ignores Constitutional Limits of Power
In Obama’s world (and the entire left-wing Democrat party) the Constitution is not what holds this country together but rather a mere document written by prejudice, white males over 200 years ago therefore completely irrelevant in today’s America. On the contrary, the Constitution was written to limit and balance the power of our three branches of government. Our Founding Fathers renounced a country where governmental power was misused and the citizens paid the price. They did not want the powers of their new government in their new country to be misused and abused in the same way; therefore they had the foresight to separate the executive, legislative and judicial branches. Their intent was to prevent any branch from becoming too powerful. If one branch did, the other two would balance the process out.
His Way Or The Highway
Actions speak louder than words and based on Obama’s actions during his two terms, he can overrule any decisions of the legislative or judicial branches by executive orders, if he so chooses…even if it’s against the will of the people. Our Founding Fathers wanted to prevent the very thing that Obama is doing…governing this great country of ours by ignoring Congress and governing solo with his phone and his pen.
The left knows that the Constitution was written to limit and balance the power of our 3 branches of government, but they don’t care. Obama and the Democrats could care less that the majority of Americans are opposed to Obamacare, immigration, the Iran nuclear deal, the outlawing of bullet production and the government regulation of the internet for starters. Obama and the Democrats have Americans hoodwinked. When will Americans get it? When will they start understanding that this government (under Obama rule) is not there for them (except for their vote on election day).
When Will It End?
Wake up America. When will you start pushing back? When will the other 2 branches of our government stop the madness in Washington? We get to vote for a new president next year, will enough voters understand the crisis the Democrats have put this country in? Will enough voters be angry enough about their loss of freedoms and rights? Probably not. Probably not until they feel the pinch of unemployment, loss of health care, or the inability to defend themselves affects them personally. Don’t wait for that America, fight for your country with your vote. Make America great again. Get rid of corrupt, self-centered politicians. Put representatives in office who care about you and your freedom, not just your vote.
