“I, [President’s Name] do solemnly swear, that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will, to the best of my ability, preserve protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, so help me God.”
That is the oath of office that all Presidents take when they are sworn in as President of The United States. However, it seems that Obama takes that oath with a grain of salt; I have heard Obama say “We are a nation of laws,” yet he seems to pick and choose what laws he will enforce. How can our Commander In Chief pick what laws to enforce and what laws he will ignore, what kind of message does that send?
Once again, he proves that he is not a President of all the people, but he only cares about the people that are behind his Liberal agenda. A President should uphold all the laws of the land, whether he agrees with them or not, if any of us would pick and choose what laws to follow, we would without a doubt be thrown into jail. How can we as a people, trust our own President to do the right thing, when he ignores the very laws he is sworn to uphold.
We have immigration laws in this country, which the President does not seem to care about. Our Southern boarders are being overrun with illegal aliens, but our President seems to favor them more than the citizens that live in those areas. He ties the hands of law enforcement and when Governors try to pass laws to protect their citizens, he takes them to court. He passes judgment on which illegal should go to jail and which one should go free, when they all broke the law by coming here illegally.
We have the Defense Of Marriage Act in this country, yet he comes right out and tells the Justice Department not to enforce it. The Presidents feelings about that law should not matter, he has sworn to uphold it, yet he does not. Nowhere in the Constitution or the Bill Of Rights does it say that marriage is a right. Yet when the people of California voted against same sex marriage, he sends briefs to the Supreme Court telling them they should overturn what the people have voted for, I guess he now chooses what rights are and the voice of the people be damned.
We have drug laws in this country, yet he tells his partner in crime Eric Holder not to enforce them, the Department of Justice announced it would not prosecute medical marijuana users or suppliers, even though it violates Federal Law. “The president is using executive power to do things Congress has refused to do, and that does fit a disturbing pattern of expansion of executive power under President Obama,” said Jonathan Turley, a constitutional law scholar at George Washington University Law School.
This is a president who is now functioning as a super legislator. He is effectively negating parts of the criminal code because he disagrees with them and that is dangerous. From Inter-net gambling laws to education laws, this President seems to throw out any law he and his Liberal crew does not agree with.
There is a Federal Law that says the President must produce a budget every year, yet he has not produced a budget in over four years. He told defense contractors not to provide legally required notice to thousands of employees that they are about to be laid off during his run for re-election.
It seems we have a narcissistic President, who only cares about what is important to him; everyone else can go to hell. Who knows what this country is going to look like after four more years of Obama, one thing I do know, it is going to be unrecognizable, unless we find a way to stop him. Our best bet is for Republicans to take back both houses, and then we have a fighting chance, otherwise, who knows.
This is one man’s opinion.
