01/16/2014 The day we have all feared has arrived. Obama just made a declaration in his first Cabinet meeting of 2014 that is truly terrifying. The dictator-in-chief stated, “We’re not just going to be waiting for legislation… I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone. And I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions.” Obama has announced his plans to ignore Congress and attempt to rule over America as king.
Based on Obama’s track record over the past five years, we can only imagine the types of Executive Orders that he will sign. From Gun Control to Gun confiscation, Amnesty for Illegal aliens and Outlawing conservatism; the list is disturbing when you think about all the possibilities. If we cannot convince Congress to stop him, we may wake up one day to find out that Obama has turned our legacy into a living nightmare.
There are members of Congress who have been warning us about this for some time. Among those members, Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX), filed HR 410 last year which is the Restore the Constitution Act. This Act would effectively outlaw any Executive Order that Obama signs, if it violates the Constitution in any way. It would not be surprising that even some Democrats in the House and Senate are nervous about Obama’s declaration that he will bypass Congress.
Let us take a look at a few of the Executive Orders that Obama has already signed in the past five years. He signed 23 Executive Orders that infringe the right to keep and bear arms. Obama even signed an Executive Order that amended Obamacare, which allows doctors and nurses to track firearms ownership of their patients. He also granted de facto amnesty to millions of illegal aliens through an Executive Order.
Even Forbes magazine reports that Obama wants to use an Executive Order to mint a giant platinum coin, to pay off the national debt (true story). Just imagine what Obama will do if he starts to go on a rampage, using his pen and his communistic desires to make up any “laws” he wants. This is no different from the situation that North Koreans and Iranians find themselves in today. Obama has openly stated that he will not wait for legislation (from Congress, as required by law) and that he will use his pen to rule us through Executive Orders. How much more of a warning does Congress need?
There are two verses in the book of Proverbs that illustrate why Obama’s dictatorship plans are dangerous to us as a nation. Verse 22:28 says, “Do not remove the ancient landmark which your fathers have set.” Verse 23:10 states, “Do not remove the ancient landmark, nor enter the fields of the fatherless; For their Redeemer is mighty; He will plead their cause against you.” The US Constitution is our “ancient landmark” which Obama is trying to remove right now. This document was written by faithful Christians and has stood the test of time as a beacon of freedom and prosperity throughout the entire world.
We cannot allow Obama to nullify the Separation of Powers and shove Congress aside. The only way he will become a dictator is if we let him. We must take action before Obama passes any more Executive Orders, which he has stated he is going to do. It is too dangerous for us to stand by and allow this man to have unlimited power over our nation.
