President Obama is Lawless

In some spectacular testimony before Congress a couple of days ago, an expert witness from the Cato Institute described why the President was treading on some dangerous ground.

Never before in the history of our nation has a President so openly flaunted the law and, in many cases, simply ignored it. That lawlessness was setting a precedent that could prove to be very dangerous, not only for President Obama, but also for our nation.

Once the government has so openly disdained the law, the people aren’t really left with any option but to also disdain the law.

There is one last thing to which the people can resort if the government does not respect the restraints that the Constitution places on the government. Abraham Lincoln talked about our right to alter our government or our revolutionary right to overthrow it.

That is certainly something that no one wants to contemplate but as I mentioned… If the people come to believe that the government is no longer constrained by the laws then they will conclude that neither are they.

That is why this is a very dangerous sort of thing for the president to do, to wantonly ignore the laws and to try to impose obligations on people that the legislature did not approve.

Obama-Law-Lecture1President Obama is a grave danger to our nation. His hubris and his choices are leading us down a path to destruction, and it will be one of our own making. Our representatives must find some way to force him to respect the law – or very soon the people will have to take matters into their own hands. That is an outcome that no one wants.
