It's getting closer and closer

Are We in Revolutionary Times?
Legally, President Obama has reiterated the principle that he can pick and choose which U.S. laws he wishes to enforce (see his decision to reverse the order of the Chrysler creditors, his decision not to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act, and his administration’s contempt for national-security confidentiality and Senate and House subpoenas to the attorney general). If one individual can decide to exempt nearly a million residents from the law — when he most certainly could not get the law amended or repealed through proper legislative or judicial action — then what can he not do? Obama is turning out to be the most subversive chief executive in terms of eroding U.S. law since Richard Nixon.

Does 'Audacity of Hope' Mean Unchecked Presidential Power?
Faced with a Republican Congress that seems stubborn to a fault and content to see Obama fail, America’s chief executive has decided to grab what some are calling an unprecedented rein on executive prerogative in order to move his political objectives down the field.
His supporters say it’s part of the President’s “audacity of hope” campaign message, exemplified by Friday’s decision to relax immigration rules for young illegal immigrants – a necessary antidote, supporters contend, to political polarization, stalemate, and gridlock in Washington.
As with other Obama decisions to ignore parts of the Defense of Marriage Act, not prosecute medical marijuana, and allow some states to opt out of No Child Left Behind provisions, the immigration order became perhaps the boldest decision yet by a president seeking reelection, critics say, to ignore laws passed by Congress in order to achieve a political objective, setting a troubling precedent for the power of the presidency.

Yes, we are. However, we are country of reality-tv watching imbeciles who are too lazy to get up off the couch to do anything about it. Obama has all but named himself dictator yet the winner of American Idol is more important.

Sorry, just a little rant because I'm tired of watching this country go down the toilet.

What Obama thinks is the right thing to do doesn't mean shit. If you think something is right, use the proper procedure to get it enacted. The blatant abuse of power evidenced by this administration is staggering.

One can only hope that the military whose job it is to protect the american people from a repressive dictatorial regime taking over in American AND to protect the constitution, will do their job and do a coup d'tat ASAP.

America is being take over by Marxists ... there is no question about it.

The question is ... when will someone step up and take it back. It has happened in many countries in he past, I can happen here. it needs to happen here.

The election may be stolen by Obama with his dictatorial antics such as declaring an amnesty to 800 thousand illegal Mexicans in America. That is only the beginning. Obama must be stopped.

The sooner we get rid of this muslim motherfucker the better our country will be. I still think that there will be NO election come
November. If he can make laws without congress, then he can make a law declaring himself dictator. He's not too dam far from it right now. I'm tired of the arrogant purple lipped fuck wiping his ass on our constitution, and equally tired of congress, them spineless dicks, of letting the motherfucker keep getting away with it. Throw'em all out!!!!!!!

It is hard to get a nation that is content to foment a rebellion. When half of the fuckers are getting government assistance, they ain"t going to upset the applecart. Between that and the fact that we are a reality show celebrity worshiping culture makes it more difficult. The average American has forsworn their birthright as it was passed down from the earlier generations.

I'm not sure I'd be wishing for a military coup d'etat in this country, John Henry. What needs to happen is Congress needs to get off its collective ass and bring impeachment proceedings against Obama now.

I agree with the posts concerning congress and the supreme court putting this Dictatorship schemes to a halt. The trouble is that the majority of congress is tied to the influence pedeling and are just as bad a he is. The minority in congress who want to do the right things are shut down. We will soon be the United Nations of Amerika... Has been in the making for several decades.
