Make no mistake about it; I do not now, nor have I ever, advocate armed insurrection, revolution or anything of the sort. What I do advocate is massive civil disobedience by rank and file conservative Americans.
I believe it has been the patient sufferance of Americans to try beyond all reason to work within the law, within the electoral processes and within the media to right the usurpations of our individual Liberty for so many decades.
We have petitioned our government for the redress of grievances only to be repeatedly rebuffed. We have written volumes, spoke millions of word, created new media, campaigned, voted and even peacefully marched.
We have elected politicians who were partisan, bipartisan, moderate, conservative and libertarian. We have organized and worked within our communities and states and yet our government, at all levels, continually becomes increasingly abusive and injurious of our unalienable rights and Supreme Law of the Land.
The allegations below are copied directly from our Declaration of Independence and while I have not changed a word in the allegations I have sought to apply them to President Obama. It is striking just how closely President Obama’s crimes against Americans follow those of King George III.
I have no doubt that King George felt the things he was doing to Colonial Americans were for the “good of all” and what was in the best interest of the “kingdom,” just as Obama claims but they were crimes and usurpations nonetheless because the ends never justify the means, especially when dealing with unalienable rights of free men and Liberty itself.
The history of the present
King of Great Britain(President of the United States) is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
President Obama has asserted executive privilege where court precedent clearly shows it is not appropriate; he has sought to create a situation through Operation Fast and Furious to support his calls for unconstitutional gun control; he has refused to enforce American immigration law and actually changed those laws – unconstitutionally legislated – by announcing he will issue work permits to illegal aliens; he has refused to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act and defend it in court as required by our Constitution as well a the voting rights act as in with the case of the New Black Panthers.
His Administration has been held in contempt of court for refusing to lift the Gulf of Mexico oil drilling ban following the BP oil spill.
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained;
He has sued Arizona for passing a state law of a pressing nature to secure the peace and freedom of residents within that state; he intentionally created a situation where in the State of Florida could not meet certain legal requirements and then sued the State of Florida for attempting to ensure the sanctity of the vote in that state.
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
He de facto dissolved Congress when he made unconstitutional “recess” appointments without the advice and consent of the Senate while the Senate was still in session and not in recess in clear violation of our Constitution; he has used his EPA to enact regulations refused by Congress and the National Labor Relations Board to enact rules rejected by Congress.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.
The Obama czars have clearly gone beyond any advisors used by previous presidents and he has sent his EPA, IRS, Justice Department and others to to sue private businesses and citizens, confiscate private lands and harass churches, private groups and organizations that oppose him.
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
He has removed the United States Military from the congressional chain of command and used them in Libya in violation of the War Powers Act and his Secretary of Defense has advised Congress they will go to war upon UN, NATO or other authorization without notifying or seeking specific funding or resolutions from the United States Congress as has always been done by previous presidents even when they have disagreed with the War Powers Act.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
He is negotiating the Law of the Sea and Small Arms treaties and conspiring with the United Nations to place American sovereignty under foreign rule by default, implementing rules such as Cap and Trade and Agenda 21 pursuant to international rules without the assent of Congress or the People and, in fact, when some of the international rules have specificially been rejected by the representatives of the People.
Now don’t get me wrong, I believe past presidents have acted extra-constitutionally and even unconstitutionally. But let’s look at George W. Bush and some of his agenda with which I disagreed as just one example:
I disagreed with No Child Left Behind; however, that law was passed through Congress and was voluntary for the states – not mandatory.
I disagreed with the State Children’s Health Insurance Plan expansion, but again, it was voluntary to the States and not mandatory.
I disagreed with the Medicare Prescription Drug Bill – Medicare Part D – but again, that is voluntary for the people and not mandatory.
President Obama, on the other hand, uses mandates, abuses regulatory authority and even executive orders to mandate against our unalienable rights.
I’m also familiar with all the consternation over the Patriot Act and George Bush, but that act – law – was at least subjected to congressional debate and the additional checks and balances of the judiciary and was not implemented by executive fiat after being rejected by Congress as Obama is doing with the EPA, IRS and others.
Don’t get me wrong though – I still believe that government at all levels all across America is out of control even when new laws seem to go through the correct process. Even then, as we’ve seen over the decades, those laws can run afoul of our unalienable rights and I don’t just give them a pass. But we’ve never seen an imperial presidency such as that of Obama’s presidency.
President Barack Obama today is clearly every bit as bad in so many respects as was King George III in 1775. The problem is that modern Americans are not as serious or concerned with Liberty as our Founders.
