My FRiends, it's becoming more and more obvious every day that Obama and the Democrats are out to purposely destroy America. They're using crisis mode to piece by piece dismantle the constitution. First it was the too big to fail crisis that led to the unconstitutional TARP program, the feds unconstitutionally taking over private sector corporations, the unconstitutional bailouts and the unconstitutional trillion dollar porkulus package. Follow that with the unconstitutional federal takeover of our healthcare system and his unconstitutional bypass of the senate's advice and consent function regarding presidential appointments (czars). Then it was thumbing his nose at the congress by conducting and continuing war in Libya without congressional approval.
Now, his multi-trillion dollar big spending programs have led to a so-called "debt crisis." It's not a debt crisis, it's a spending crisis. And it's now clear that the president has no intention of working with the congress to decrease spending or use a constitutional solution to the debt. He has avoided stating any plan to the American people because he has no valid constitutional plan. Instead, he plans on invoking (twisting) the 14th amendment by executive order to raise the debt limit by presidential decree. He plans to completely ignore the constitution and bypass the U.S. Congress!
This would be the constitutional crisis of the century. We ain't seen nothing yet. This would make Nixon look like a Boy Scout and the constitutional crisis of the 70's a church picnic. If Obama does this, political blood will flow in the streets. Impeached or not, this will be political suicide for Obama and the democrats. Bring it on!!
And still, the Republicans are falling all over each other trying to come up with a bipartisan plan to solve the "debt crisis" when all they really need to do is pass a budget that gets spending under control. We don't need higher taxes, we don't need an increase in the debt limit, we don't need a balanced budget amendment and we don't need wimpy spending cuts that are scheduled to take place some time in the future. And we sure as hell don't need to bend over for the democrats. The Republicans control the House and the House controls the spending, the taxes, the deficit and the debt.
So, control it, already! Hold the line! Reinforcements are coming in 2012! Do not retreat, do not surrender, do not cave, do not make a deal with the devil. Congressional deadlock would be far better than capitulation or continuing down the current bankruptcy path. Worst case, no debt limit increase would force spending cuts.
In our current crisis, government is not the solution; government is the problem. --RR
This is no time for the Republicans to lose faith in conservative principle or go wobbly. Please call or write your congressional reps and urge them to hold the line!!
And if Obama dares trying to rule by executive order, let the games begin!!
TEA party America will not stand for a dictator!!
God bless America.

Rebellion is brewing!!
Personally, I think we're edging closer and closer to a real breakdown, where people will outright rebel. Then the $h!t will really hit the rotating air oscillator.
This is not a country ruled by a King. Maybe in Kenya, but in the USA!
Thanks Jim for all you do.
This is not a country ruled by a King. Maybe in Kenya, but not in the USA!
Amen and Amen!
Another great commentary by a man I now call “The Captain”.
All things considered, the proper title should be “Chief”. (As in Chief Petty Officer, who are the folks who REALLY make the Navy work.)
Thanks for the compliment, anyway.
Bumping that new FReepathon thread!
