US sliding into tyranny because of Obama’s skin color

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I must again state we are facing a constitutional crisis in America as we head into tyranny. I concur with Rush Limbaugh’s comments yesterday, that no one in Congress will do anything about Obama’s lawlessness because he is “the first black president.” If you didn’t hear his show yesterday, here’s the pertinent clip.

I previously suggested every single Member of Congress who stood and cheered during the State of the Union address when President Obama stated he would act without legislative approval should be fired. Rush put it this way, “They (Democrats) are totally willing to grant dictatorial powers to one of their own.”

The most elemental question I must ask, is America and its survival less important than a historic moment for the first black president? Will Americans suffer and lose their country just for “historic moments?” Is having the first anything president – woman, Hispanic, openly gay – worth turning over our nation to progressive socialists whose ideals are antithetical to our Republic?

Barack Obama is not a god who must be worshipped, he is a man, and a dangerous individual. He must be removed from office. America is greater than him. Dr. King wanted a future where we would be judged by the content of our character, not the color of our skin. That also means we must not sacrifice character for the color of skin.

Consider the statement from Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Tx): “our job now is to create executive orders for the President to sign.” Those words are a complete abdication of her legislative duties and a threat to our Constitutional Republic.

But even liberals are beginning to get the picture. Last night speaking with Megyn Kelly on The Kelly File, attorney and liberal constitutional professor Jonathan Turley from George Washington University expressed his concern.

I include his entire quote here because it is both remarkable and disturbing:

“I’m afraid it’s quite serious because the framers created a system that was designed to avoid one principle thing, the concentration of power in any one branch. Because that balancing between these branches in this fixed orbit is what not only gives stability to our system but it protects us against authoritarian power, it protects civil liberties from abuse.

And what we’ve been seeing is the shift of gravity within that system in a very dangerous way that makes it unstable, and I think that’s what the president is doing. I think that we’ve become a nation of enablers.

We are turning a blind eye to a fundamental change in our system. I think many people will come to loathe that they remained silent during this period. I’m afraid this is beginning to border on a cult of personality for people on the left. I happen to agree with many of President Obama’s policies, but in our system it is often as important how you do something as what you do.

And I think that many people will look back at this period in history and see nothing but confusion as to why people remained so silent when the president asserted these types of unilateral actions. You have a president who is claiming the right to basically rewrite or ignore or negate federal laws. That is a dangerous thing. It has nothing to do with the policies; it has to do with politics.

A system in which a single individual is allowed to rewrite legislation or ignore legislation is a system that borders on authoritarianism. I don’t believe that we are that system yet. But we cannot ignore that we’re beginning to ignore a system that is a pretense of democracy if a president is allowed to take a law and just simply say, ‘I’m going to ignore this,’ or, ‘I’m going to shift funds that weren’t appropriated by Congress into this area.'”

The president’s State of the Union indicated this type of unilateralism that he has adopted as a policy. Now, many people view that as somehow empowering. In my view, it’s dangerous, that is what he is suggesting is to essentially put our system off line.”

If this is the case, why don’t we hear more of this in the media? If this were a Republican president saying this stuff and taking these blatantly unconstitutional actions we would no doubt hear about it. Does President Obama truly believe he possesses the ultimate “get out of jail free” card — his (mixed) race? Is that why he acts with clear belligerence against our foundational governing system?

This is no longer a debatable issue. President Barack Hussein Obama now represents a clear and present danger to our Constitutional Republic. Is this the hope and change we really want? Is this the fundamental transformation of America its citizens seek?
