Whoever wins the upcoming election in November will be handed the opportunity to shape America for the next 25 years and beyond. FIVE Supreme Court Justices are already in their 70′s & 80′s, plus some are in ill health. This situation should be of concern to every freedom-loving American. Obama and the “Progressives” have shown their disdain for the Constitution and the laws that are based on that document. Obama picks and chooses which laws he will enforce and which ones he won’t because he personally doesn’t like them. Obama’s attitude flies in the face of the oath that he took as President of the United States. His cabinet members have also shown a huge tendency for disregarding the laws that they don’t like. Here are a couple of Obama’s favorite targets: the Second Amendment, The Defence of Marriage Act, and ALL the immigration laws of the United States. Obamacare, which was ruled a “tax” by the Supreme Court, originated in the SENATE, not the House of Representatives where ALL taxation is supposed to begin, as per our Constitution. Obama has flaunted the Hyde Amendment (which is law) that says NO taxpayer money shall be used to fund abortion.
When Barack Obama was an Illinois state senator, he successfully BLOCKED legislation to protect babies who were born alive after an attempted abortion. He was in favor of INFANTICIDE! The Born Alive Infant Protection Act was finally PASSED after Obama had moved on to Washington, D.C. What do you think he will do if he can pack the Supreme Court with his like-minded Progressives. What would be the next step…euthanasia for the chronically ill? The elderly, the disabled, the mentally challenged? What would stop Obama from effectively nullifying our Constitution through a judicial fiat? Obama has shown a tendency to find ways AROUND Congress instead of working with them, effectively neutering them and ruling by executive orders. I don’t believe that that is the way our founding fathers intended America to function.
The president would be able to destroy industries that he doesn’t like through regulatory dictatorship without even bothering to consult Congress. In fact, that is happening right now in the fossil fuel industry; and Obama would shamelessly continue to pour BILLIONS of taxpayer money into “green energy ” projects that are turning out to be nothing more than useless, unstable, and impractical payback schemes for chosen Obama supporters. Obama could use his Supreme Court appointees to silence his critics in all areas of the media and control who gets access to the Internet (and who gets rewarded or punished for what they do for him or against him politically.) The government could become totally intrusive in your life with no recourse on your part to stop it. Obama and his zombies would have the ability to control every aspect of your life and not have to worry about answering to anyone. He’s already shown a penchant for doing that.
It would basically take an armed revolution to take back control of the country if that scenario developed, and I really don’t think anyone really wants that…yet. Obama, himself, said “elections have consequences”; and they do, but the question becomes “what kind of consequences?” Do we get a President who believes that the United States is a country of laws and not men, or do we get a President so hellbent on totally changing America into his vision of “social justice” that EVERYBODY loses? The choice is yours, my fellow Americans, and this IS literally an election to decide whether we go on to greatness or we become a banana republic. We need people on the Supreme Court who will view new laws and legislation through the Constitution, not activism! We need justices who will hold those in power accountable, according to our Constitution.
