Constitution Day Resources
While many have misunderstood our Constitution, I have read many comments within the US politics forum that demonstrate a blatant disregard for the document that has helped us become and remain the great nation that we are.
Those disparaging remarks are obviously protected by the targeted document itself, but at the end of the day, are of little consequence.
When those in power, however, show the same disregard, then we have a problem that demands attention.
ABC News - Court Rules Obama NLRB Appointments Unconstitutional
And many others to consider as well...
Obama has compiled a lengthy list of violations
-Launching an illegal war in Libya. [Article I, Section 8]
-Undermining the nation’s armed forces. [Article II, Section 2]
-Violating religious freedom. [1st Amendment]
-Appointing agency “czars” without Senate approval. [Article II, Section 2]
-Forcing Americans to buy health insurance. [Article I, Section 8]
-Refusing to enforce laws that he doesn’t like. [Article II, Section 3]
-Violating equal protection and voting rights. [14th Amendment]
-Attacking a state for upholding federal law. [10th Amendment]
Feel free to defend Obama on any or all of those alleged infractions or add any others that are not mentioned here.
The point is, we should at least care. Whether past Presidents acted in similar ways or not, it should not be acceptable now or in the future.
