The drafters of the US Constitution purposefully wrote it to keep law making powers out of the hands of the President. Those powers were reserved for Congress who was supposed to do the will of the people, but we know that doesn’t happen anymore either.
The drafters of the US Constitution also established a federal judiciary to help protect the Constitution. Their duties were to make sure that no American citizens violated the Constitution, Bill of Rights or federal laws. They were also charged with making sure that the other two branches of the federal government, legislative and executive, operate within the confines of the Constitution and federal laws.
However, the White House is now saying that Barack Obama is not only above the law, above the Constitution, above Congress and now above the federal courts.
Judge Arthur J. Schwab of the Western District of Pennsylvania heard a case involving the delayed deportation of an illegal immigrant. In his ruling, Schwab stated that Obama has some discretion in how to enforce laws, which I strongly disagree with. There is nothing in the Constitution that gives enforcement discretion to anyone, especially the occupant of the White House.
However, what I found alarming in this case was that attorney’s for the Obama administration argued that judges have no power to review a president’s decision-making. If judges don’t have the power to review a president’s decisions and he has some discretion in how to enforce laws and he is allowed to make law without Congress; then that equates to a dictatorship and America is once again ruled by a greedy self-serving tyrant like we were over 240 years ago. Perhaps it’s time for another revolution to take our country back and re-establish a true constitutional government.
