from November 2014, Government
Here we stand. The U.S. Constitution has been trampled on by our President, issuing yet another executive order making law — without Congress — that those who had broken the lass of our land and entered the country illegally were now welcomed guests — with no doubt an invitation coming shortly to become citizens.
The challenge we face is two fold:
- How are we going to stop President Obama from doing further damage via his fiat pen?
- Who is going to undo this damage when President Obama is out of office?
The first question is, will our Republican led congress do anything of substance to stop Obama? This means more than using Obama’s actions for a GOP fundraisers or for raising the hackles on the back of our necks so we support the GOP. No, Obama took action. Now it is our turn. But will the GOP do likewise — take real action — to stop this and future unconstitutional acts? Congress controls the purse, so there is an wide swath of pressure they can place upon the White House — but will they take real action or will they just talk? Watch your congressman, watch your senators and watch the upcoming candidates for the 2016 GOP nomination. Talk is cheap. Real, substantiative action is what we need.
