Even in the darkest days of the Great Depression, the
has always found a way to pay its
debts, but with the petulant children in control of the Government today, that
may end. Our elected officials appear to be more concerned with spending money
they don’t have, than with what is actually good for the Country that they are
supposed to represent. In your household, like mine, when you run out of money,
you can borrow a limited amount. You are not able to raise your borrowing limit
arbitrarily, that is a decision made by your lender based on your credit
worthiness. What has happened though is that we, the American People, have
allowed spendthrifts the keys to the vault and unlimited access to the
checkbook. We have no one to blame but ourselves. United
Other people have written about how we need to impeach the President, recall various and sundry Congress-critters, or worse, simply learn to live with the ‘new’ normal.
I, could never content myself with living in the ‘new’ normal,
is, was, and will always be the last best hope for humanity. We are the Country
that oppressed people flee to, not from, and anything that endangers that
reputation I will oppose with all my heart. America
Therefore, in order to impeach a sitting chief executive, the House of Representatives must pass an order of Impeachment, and then the Senate must agree to the impeachment. I think that is, at best, a long shot at this point. Our Congress would argue for a week on what to have for lunch, let’s not assume any of them would have the personal fortitude to lead that charge. Therefore, impeachment is off the table.
Of the three options we are allowed to discuss, we are left with recalling Congress. I think this option is the least likely since removing 535 people individually is unlikely, there has been some movement in this direction, but to little too late. The worst part is that the ones removed are at best only slightly better than the reprobates they have replaced. What could be even worse is if, we could remove the entire Congress in one sweep, what prevents the Executive branch from simply refusing to seat a new one. Mr. Obama has lamented, “He is not a Dictator”, without a Congress, what would stand in the way of him becoming one. For that matter, what is the Congress doing now that essentially curtails his imperial ambitions. Through Executive Orders and public tantrums, he has bullied and forced congress to abrogate much of its duties to the Executive branch.
So maybe he will have one more first to brag about when he is crowned Barack the First…
