We’ve seen him make all kinds of mad power grabs, from executive orders about immigration, to recess appointments, and making illegal terrorist trades without the authorization of Congress.
But according to the man himself, we haven’t seen anything yet.
In fact, the president recently admitted that he’s going to push the boundaries of his power as far as they can go.
See for yourself.
From The Daily Caller:
“Where [elected Republicans in Congress] are not willing to work with us, we will do it administratively or we will convene the private sector,” he said in a friendly interview with The Huffington Post.
“By hook or by crook,” he added.
Obama said his big-government push would “make sure that when I leave this office, that the country is more prosperous, more people have opportunity, kids have a better education, we’re more competitive, climate change is being taken more seriously than it was, and we are actually trying to do something about it.”
It truly must be wonderful to own beachfront property in this fantasy land filled with rainbows and lollipops, where unicorns prance in the warm sun, and every child has a soft, warm, furry kitten to snuggle every night, because down here in the real world things look like they’re pretty much going the opposite direction from Obama’s grand “vision” he outlined above.
The more he breaks the law and violates the Constitution to push his agenda, the worse things get for average, hard working Americans.
Just look at the damage Obamacare has already done to small businesses in our country.
We don’t need Obama to have more power so he can get something “accomplished.” We need him to have less power in order to protect our freedoms. Like, oh, I don’t know, the kind of power outlined in the Constitution and not a touch more.
To be a constitutional scholar, this man doesn’t understand a thing about the document he swore to protect and uphold. Obama can’t simply throw a hissy fit because Congress won’t work with him, violate the restraints placed on him by the Constitution, and do what he wants.
Tyrants and monarchs do that sort of thing. Not elected leaders in a Republican style government.
You see, the president has it all wrong. He thinks the shackles of the Constitution are obstacles preventing him from accomplishing his dreams. In reality, the shackles are protecting us from the delusions of a man who thinks absolute authority in the hands of the government is the solution to all of mankind’s ills.
I’ll leave you all with this.
“It would be a dangerous delusion were a confidence in the men of our choice to silence our fears for the safety of our rights… Confidence is everywhere the parent of despotism. Free government is founded in jealousy, and not in confidence. It is jealousy and not confidence which prescribes limited constitutions, to bind down those whom we are obliged to trust with power… Our Constitution has accordingly fixed the limits to which, and no further, our confidence may go… In questions of power, then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.”
