All Hail President Obama, the Benevolent Dictator

We’re all sitting and holding our collective breath waiting to hear the decision from the Supreme Court about the constitutionality of the health care law. But we shouldn’t worry too much, we’ve been assured by the Obama administration that they have a contingency plan if it is struck down. Mind you, we don’t know exactly what the plan is – but I think that we can assume that an Executive Order is what Obama has in mind.

Why not? The Dream Act is the perfect example. When President Obama was unable to pass it through Congress, and when he thought the polls supported it, he bypassed Congress and made it into law by writing a memo asking Janet Napalitano to use “prosecutorial discretion”. I’m so glad to see how as a Constitutional “scholar” how clearly he understands the separation of powers concept.

It’s a scary thought, an Executive branch that can write and pass legislation without the input of Congress. This is exactly the opposite of what a “republic” is. A republic is where the citizens of the country send a legislator to represent them in Congress to write laws for all of us. Instead of respecting the legislative process, President Obama would rather play the part of a benevolent dictator. When he feels it’s the “right thing to do” he goes out on his own and writes his own laws. We’ve seen it recently with the Dream Act, why not with the health care law? And let’s think back, is there anything else he wasn’t able to get through Congress over the last three and a half years?
