Government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.” —Ronald Reagan
Today’s Americans, enticed, perhaps enchanted, by charismatic speeches, are ceding so much power to Washington, and like yesteryear’s Germans are building the Trojan Horse for a future tyrant. SOURCE:WALTER WILLIAMS
A sage once said; “Those who can, do. Those who can’t, teach. Those who can’t do either, “raise consciousness”. Those who can’t do anything go into politics. Meaningful term limits are long overdue.
The burning question in my mind is how can we have 60 lawyers in the U.S. Senate and 204 Lawyers in the U.S. Congress, who do not object to the obvious violation of the Constitution being perpetrated by the president.
Obama has created 17 czars and the 18th is waiting in the wings. He will be the czar for compensation.
All of these czars are responsible only to the president, and that makes them a government within the Constituted government.
The House of Representatives is supposed, by our Constitution, to appropriate all funds for government programs.
The framers of the Constitution detailed the duties and reasons for the delegation of those duties to the Congressional House of Representative.The House has an equal status with the Senate on most matters, but a superior status in tax and spending.
House of Representatives, Duties as detailed by our Constitutional framers includes the following.
15 May 1789 Annals 1:65
“The Constitution, having authorized the House of Representatives alone to originate money bills, places an important trust in our hands, which, as their protectors, we ought not to part with. I do not mean to imply that the Senate are less to be trusted than this house; but the Constitution, no doubt for wise purposes, has given the immediate representatives of the people a control over the whole government in this particular, which, for their interest, they ought not to let out of their hands.
The Constitution places the power in the House of originating money bills. The principal reason why the Constitution had made this distinction was, because they were chosen by the people, and supposed to be the best acquainted with their interest and ability. In order to make them more particularly acquainted with these objects, the democratic branch of the legislature consisted of a greater number, and were chosen for a shorter period; that so they might revert more frequently to the mass of the people”.
As lawyers, each and every one of the 264 current members of the U.S. House and Senate must certainly understand that what Obama has done by appointing czars, who are responsible to no one but him, is a direct violation of the Constitution the president swore to uphold when he took the office of President.
He has appointed special “advisors” who will work from inside the White House on healthcare, the economy, energy and urban issues, with more to come.
Why then, has no one objected to Obama taking away from the House of Representatives their Constitutional rights? He appears to be subverting the authority of Congress, and concentrating too much power in the presidency! These “petty dictators” apparently plan to expand government’s tentacles into nearly every nook and cranny of American government, business, and personal life,and control the purse strings of trillions of tax payers money.
In my un-legal opinion, Obama has committed an impeachable offense and nobody in Congress is even voicing an objection! Apparently, the virtue of decency and respect for the rule of law has been subverted by the quest for power, and in so doing we may loose our Country as our parents and grandparents experienced it!
Our government, while having neither moral nor constitutional authority, has the legal and physical might to take the property of one American and give it to another. And Obama has been doing this since taking over the Oval Office at a rate that exceedes all the money spent by Bush for the Iraq war and his Tarp program!
The unanticipated problem with this agenda is that as Congress uses its might to take what belongs to one American to give to another, what President Obama calls “spreading the wealth around,” more and more Americans will want to participate in the looting. It will ultimately produce something none of us wants: absolute control over our lives. They call it fascism!
