The best way to prevent a person from becoming a dictator is to not put him into a position in which he could become one. Our Founding Fathers put this requirement in the Constitution: Article II, Section 1, Paragraph 5 states: “No Person except a natural-born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of the President; neither shall any person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.”

According to the Constitution and our Founding Fathers, because Barack Obama’s father was a Kenyan citizen and not an American citizen at the time of Barack’s birth, Barack is not eligible to be President. Supposedly, Obama was an expert on the Constitution. Yet he ran for President anyways. He knew that he had one big advantage over Chester A. Arthur, our other ineligible person to be declared the President; and it was his skin color. Who was going to attack the first black President for being ineligible for the Presidency? Screams of racism would fill the land. That would mean if I accused a person of committing a federal crime like dodging the draft (which Clinton did), or any other federal crime, I would be a racist. Al Capone committed the federal crime of tax evasion. Would I be considered a racist to support his imprisonment at Alcatraz? Of course not. The same should apply to Obama’s illegal act of considering himself eligible to be President. Not all blacks are federal criminals like all those accusing me of being a racist must think. Now that would be true racism.
The Constitution and Obama’s ineligibility to be President, according to that document, is a clear reason to remove him from the White House. Surprisingly, even Conservatives don’t use that as a reason to do so. There are many other ways to remove Obama from office. Impeachment is a popular and potentially effective way to remove him from office. It requires timing. If Obama is hated more in 2014 prior to the election in November, the impeachment hearings could be held in September or October, when Democrats are eyeing their defeat, and we might have a better chance of throwing him out of office. With the accusation that Obama was illegally declared President, Democrats may be desperate to remain in office and dump Obama. But since they have supported Obama before he was illegally elected, they should be thrown out too.
A charge against Obama that is an easy one to make is perjury. He said he would support and defend the Constitution. But he has caused a less perfect union, established injustice, has destroyed domestic tranquility, removed money and support for the common defense of this nation, made the general welfare of the nation worse, and made our liberty less secure now and into the future. He also violated Article I, Section 1, Paragraph 1 of the Constitution, which states that all legislative powers are granted only to Congress. Only Congress can change a law once it is adopted. Obama has done so often with the Affordable Care Act. He has also tried to work around Congress whenever possible.
Harry Reid violated Article 1, Section 7, which states that all bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives, by introducing the Affordable Care Act (which Obama pushed before he was elected.) Congress passed one bill, and the Senate Democrats misshaped it into Obamacare, passed it, and then the Democrat Congress passed it. Obama didn’t want his health care law considered a tax. But the Supreme Court said it would be unconstitutional unless it were a tax since no one can be forced to buy something.

By admitting he didn’t know something before the general public learned about it in the news is admitting he is incompetent. If Michael Moore can accuse Bush of being out of touch when he showed him teeing off, he could make a mini-series about Obama being out of touch. Then again, maybe there are two Obamas. There is the one who is like Sergeant Shultz, who knows nothing and would rather enjoy the perks of the Presidency; and there is the one we aren’t allowed to know about. Remember, Al Capone was loved by so many in Chicago for what he did for them while still being the most notorious gangster in the city. Obama is loved by millions despite all the bad things blamed on him.
Public opinion caused Nixon to resign from the Presidency before he could be impeached. And that was mainly for obstruction of justice. Obama has done that and so much more. But the press hated Nixon and still loves Obama, to some extent. We have the majority of the people against Obama (and some in his own party.) What we need now is an honest news media that doesn’t view Obama through brick-covered glasses. When a person refuses to see and relies on verbal instructions from liars, don’t be surprised if they fall into pits.
