To the editor:
President Obama in an interview with Univision stated that Washington cannot be fixed from the inside, that you must go outside. Our Constitution defines the system and process under which our government is to operate. Following that process has insured the freedoms and rights defined by our Constitution and Bill of Rights. We the people elect representatives to the Senate and House of Representatives of the Legislative branch as defined by the Constitution. We also elect a president to head the executive branch. Each of the members of both branches swears that they will govern by the guidelines of the Constitution. Following the Constitution has proven to be the most free and prosperous form of government known to man. We have enjoyed freedom and thrived as a country for over two hundred years by being true to our founding fathers vision.
Any definition of what the president said would be operating outside what he has sworn to uphold and is a breach of the oath that he took when he became president. He used the health care bill as an example of operating outside of Washington. That is not a truthful statement. The bill was passed by the elected Congress. It was done by using partisan nonstandard procedures and has suffered the disapproval of the electorate and has proven to represent little or none of the good it was stated to hold for we the people. It is not likely that President Obama could pass another bill on a totally partisan basis like he did with health care.
So what other choices would President Obama, who has proven that he cannot even pass a budget using the constitutional process, have at his disposal in a second term? He has given us some insight with his executive orders on illegal immigrants and many other dictates concerning the environment and regulatorial processes. Class warfare, or mob warfare and other such tactics could be used outside the Constitution for an executive branch to justify dictates that would truely transform what millions have died to defend and what we presently know and love as the republic of the United States of America.
Will we the people give a man, who stated he cannot do the job working within the system and who takes a position so counter to the principles integral to the sovereignty of our republic, another chance to head our executive branch of government?
