FBCStaff-How far is this Presidental willing to take us? This is the first time in US history contempt of Congress charges have been levied against a US Attorney General. The administration’s selective enforcement of our laws, i.e. the new immigration policy, suing the State of Az. over their immigration law, blocking the Texas Voter ID Law. With several rulings by SCOTUS in the next week it’s imperative this President do his sworn duty:
“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
A Constitutional Crisis is:
“a situation that the legal system’s constitution or other basic principles of operation appear unable to resolve; it often results in a breakdown in the orderly operation of government. Often, generally speaking, a constitutional crisis is a situation in which separate factions within a government disagree about the extent to which each of these factions hold sovereignty. Most commonly, constitutional crises involve some degree of conflict between different branches of government (e.g., executive, legislature, and/or judiciary), or between different levels of government in a federal system (e.g., state and federal governments).”
Our nation is great because it’s a nation of laws and by using the US DOJ to selectively enforce laws or using other department to circumvent laws, ie Department of Homeland Security to enforce his new immigration policy, the President is walking a fine line between doing his duties and trying to appease his voters as the election approaches. Are the President and democrats willing to throw our nation into a constituional crisis to avoid losing power?
It’s important to remember what July 4th means to our nation. US citizenss must exercise their right to vote in 2012 and Show Up, Stand Up and Speak Up in support of the US Constituion.
