Wake up voters

Dear Editor:

He’s not hiding it anymore. Last year, the Messiah was still insisting, “I am not a dictator.” But now he is out and proud, strutting around in full coup regalia, powering the ship of state full steam ahead to Banana Republic status.

We’re a long way from the campaign of 2008, when candidate obummer declared, “I take the Constitution ‘very’ seriously. The biggest problems that we’re facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the Executive Branch, and not go through Congress at all. And that’s what I intend to reverse when I’m President of the United States of America.”

That was for the saps, the dupes, the marks — when he was still in his stealth phase, pretending to believe in the American political system as founded, to get their votes. It was all a con, and it worked. Now the trap is sprung, he’s out of the closet, and every week brings a new authoritarian declaration: “We are not going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we are providing Americans the kind of help that they need. I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone — and I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions and administrative actions …” —January 14, 2014

Here’s another bit of his tyrannical promise: “That’s the good thing as a President, I can do whatever I want.” — February 10, 2014

And Obama can also depend on the congressional brainiacs in his own party to help him neuter congress: “We’ll give President Obama a number of executive orders that he can sign with pride and strength,” gushed Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D, Texas). “In fact, I think that should be our No. 1 agenda: Let’s write up these executive orders …”

Folks, at this rate, you can soon stamp the state of the Obama coup: Mission Accomplished. His outrageous and flagrant use of Executive Orders and his outright illegal actions usurping the United States Constitution must stop.

The future of our grandchildren is now in jeopardy because of reckless spending, godless government, and mean-spirited attempts to silence any critic. And if each of us just sits back and expects someone else to take action against media elitism and political correctness, it will soon be too late.

However, if the voters this November will wake up. I’d like to think that America might once again be “one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
