(Bob Russell/TeaParty.org) – Coming on the heels of executive orders that by-pass Congress and the Constitution on the 2nd Amendment we now find Barack Obama and his henchmen shredding even more of the Constitution. Jay Carney essentially threatened local sheriffs who have said they will uphold their oath of office to the Constitution and refuse to obey unconstitutional federal gun laws. Carney came out and said they better obey Obama’s orders because of Obama’s dedication to upholding that same Constitution[i] . After adding this to the countless edicts that have come out we now find Obama issuing another EO creating a federal commission to change state election laws to suit him and his Marxist handlers[ii] .
How can anyone not see the blatant tyranny being brought by this bunch of wanna-be banana republic dictators? The only vote fraud anyone has proven has come from his supporters, like the woman in Illinois bragging that she voted 6 – 9 times in 2012[iii]. I am sure Obama plans for his commission to stop such activity.
The only vote fraud found in the last several elections have benefitted Democrats, such as Al Franken in 2008[iv]. Now Obama and his criminal enterprise intend to stack the deck even further by dictating (there is that word again) how state elections are conducted. I am sure we will soon find Gestapo agents from DHS “overseeing” every process involved in voting, and the counting of those votes.
Our Constitution was written by men who lived under a tyrannical government and wrote our guiding document to prevent such a thing from happening again. Over time We the People have become so enamored of the political parties that many no longer see the Constitution for what it is, a road map of liberty, self-determination, and personal responsibility. Neither political party has the best interests of the citizens in mind. They only look to how they are going to be the ones sitting at the top of their ivory tower and getting the biggest piece of the pie of tyranny they are baking for We the People.
The government established by our founders was to be a government OF THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE, and FOR THE PEOPLE. It was written to give the most power to the citizens. Through the citizens LIMITED power would be given to the state government, and through the state governments even further LIMITED power would be given to the federal government. Today we see the federal government dictating what We the People can and cannot do through bureaucrats and professional politicians who go to law school, enter politics, and spend their lives dictating our rights back to us as it suits them.
Any fringe group that doesn’t like what the Constitution says about liberty and personal responsibility goes to government or to the courts and gets what they want handed to them as long as they will support those who give them a free pass to stomp on the rights of others. This isn’t how our founders designed our system. This is the system used in feudal Europe where one man, or his appointed minions, decides who gets what, who can do what, and who has to bow to the whims of who.
You don’t like guns, don’t own one; you don’t like sugary drinks, don’t drink one; you don’t like beef because you think it is unhealthy, don’t eat it. But what gives anyone the right to tell me I can’t do these things, and what gives Barack Obama and his minions the right to determine how elections are administered at the state level?
This voting issue, like the gun ownership issue, isn’t about “fairness” or “safety”; it is about control, the control of many by a few. This is dictatorship by conning citizens into believing that the federal government knows best. Our founders didn’t believe such tripe and neither do I. If we are to live free and have the ability to live our lives we must also take some personal responsibility for said freedom.
Obama and his allies in both political parties seek to change election laws to suit themselves, yet have a very poor record of prosecuting those who violate current election laws, such as the lady I mentioned earlier. And speaking of prosecuting law breakers, Chicago came out 90th of 90 cities studied recently in the prosecution of federal gun laws yet these same people want more gun restrictions. Why pass more laws that won’t be enforced??? Why change election laws when current ones aren’t enforced???
You see, it isn’t about enforcing the law, it is about tyranny. It is about passing more laws that restrict the liberty of the law abiding American citizen. The political elites want to be able to insure they will reign forever without danger of We the People sending them to prison where they belong, the gallows which they deserve, or to just send them back home.
If this “commission” is allowed to stand, our system of free elections will be gone forever, if not already gone. Intimidation, deceit, and bribery are the order of the day in our political society now and will only get worse if Obama gets to dictate how elections are done. We already find ourselves living under severe voter fraud but neither political party will acknowledge fraud, much less do anything to stop it.
The “battle” between the parties is merely a dog and pony show to make We the People think someone actually cares about the voice of the people. I am sure we will find another “Gang of …” to get together for a “bi-partisan agreement” on how to solve the issue of “fair elections”.
