Happy ‘Independence From Obama’ Day!

Two hundred thirty four years ago, America had had enough. King George had moved from monarch to tyrant. With no constitution to protect them from the ruinous whims of a tyrannical dictator, the colonists declared their independence.

Among George’s other offenses, the Declaration charged, “He has abdicated Government hereĀ … He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.”

Move forward 234 years and we have a Constitution. One that has governed this land well, and mapped out a way of life with maximum freedom and minimum government. The Obama Administration has decided the Constitution is for the “little people”. Like George, the wishes of the people are of no concern to Obama. Health Care Reform was rammed through without even reading the bill. We are already suffering the consequences in higher premiums and overwhelmed emergency rooms. Not to mention doctors are not being paid as they should by the government, forcing many to raise fees on those with insurance.

When the Black Panthers showed up with weapons in Philadelphia intent on preventing white people from voting, presumably for Obama’s opponent, they were arrested. Feeling he is above the law, Obama had the charges dropped. This is tyrannical behavior.

When Obama decided that he wanted no more drilling in the Gulf, he imposed an illegal moratorium. A federal judge overruled Obama, who has said he will be reissuing a moratorium. Above the law.

When Obama’s friends in Chicago were told their gun ban was unconstitutional by the Supreme Court, they simply pass another more restrictive law. Obama has deep roots in the above the law crowd.

Unconcerned with the devastation the oil leak is causing, Obama has used the crisis to expand his power. And he has doen nothing to help speed the repairs. In fact, he has worked against stopping the leak with more and more red tape. Oil skimmers sit idle because Obama needs the crisis to expand power. He believes the people of the Gulf are simply pawns, to use at his whim.

While many immigrants have come through the front door, learned the Constitution, taken English classes and followed the legal path to citizenship, Obama wants to allow those who sneak in the back way to cut in line in front of the legal immigrants who respect our laws. Obama does this not for humanitarian reasons, but because he knows the majority will vote Democrat. Obama pretends to be their friend and savior, but is using them as pawns. Hw is required to defend our borders, yet he opens the floodgates for those who do not respect our laws.

This time, the tyranny is far more insidious, as it is being done in direct violation of our Constitution and laws, aided and abetted by the Democratic Party and a willing press.

It took the colonists a while to bring about the defeat of King George, and required the use of weapons of war.

This time around, no shots will be fired. None will fall in the anger of war. Mayhem will be averted, because this time, we are armed with the Constitution, rule of law and the ballot box. These are far more powerful weapons and their retort is loud.

Today we wave the flag in remembrance of what our Founding Fathers wanted for this land.

Today we remember what we had when America was free from tyrants. Today we count the blessings of the last 234 years.

But our battle will be won in November – not with a sword, but with a simple pen and a ballot.

The pen is, indeed, mightier than the sword.

    It kinda sucks to live in a District with no competitive race to enjoy.

    Brilliant piece and its sums up our current maelstrom. I am worried though about the voting process…I do not TRUST it or rather, I anticipate a lot of question marks come November on eligble voters and their votes. I hope I am wrong.

    A watching John Adams on HBO for the first time…seems like only the clothing is different. The rhetoric is as true today as it was then

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
