Obama can do this not because the Constitution or law
authorize it. Most definitely they actually prohibit it. He
is getting away with it because there is no one who can stop him and
almost no one who wants to stop him. No one, and I mean absolutely no
one, in the Democrat party is in the slightest interested in reining in
Obama’s expansion of executive diktat because they know what few of the rest of us are awakening to: the Democrats are never going
to lose that executive authority again. Let me be clear, with a promise
to elucidate another day: there is never going to be another
Republican president. Ever.
I’m not sure what Don’s reasoning is here, but I can think of at least one way he could be right: The tipping point has passed, and is now receding in the rearview mirror. From here on out, it’s down all the way.
Why? Because after a century of trying, the progressive Marxists have finally managed to get more Americans directly on the government dole, and they are leveraging the advantage that gives them to ignore the Constitution, ignore the Congress and the courts, and institute further changes that will only cement their many advantages. The actual tipping point arrived in November of 2012, when Obama was reelected mostly by a nation terrified that their government cheese might be cut or withdrawn in the midst of a terrible economy (that has been deliberately exacerbated by the Obama administration and their cohorts in Congress.
Because I believe all of this to be the case, I can see nothing for it but to support and work for Mark Levin’s Amending Convention. I can’t see any other way beyond a successful armed insurrection of breaking the progressive stranglehood on American governance, and I frankly don’t give insurrection much of a chance.
Another thought just occurred to me: We might never see another GOP president because the GOP itself may implode and be replaced by a new party. Especially if it manages to hold together long enough to serve up another Ruling Party Republican loser in 2016.
