BANANAREPUBLICOFUS

Cartoon of the United Banana Republic of America and we voted for it twice.

Without a Constitution, we are nothing more than a Banana Republic. Mr. Obama flagrantly and continuously tramples on the Constitution. He is the constitutional scholar who has little regard for our Constitution in what is the irony of all ironies.

He has lied to the American public to fulfill his objectives – by any means necessary is his mantra.

He has lied to the world in fact and the world knows it.

I am going to repeat something that I posted in an article yesterday because I think it is very important. It was a moment of awareness that clarified Obama’s motives for me and it is the biggest lie of all.

The telegraphUK wrote something prior to the election last year that stuck with me. Mr. Obama pretends that he supports American Exceptionalism while he has made it clear by his actions, and occasionally his words, that he does not.

Without our nation’s belief in the ‘God‑given’ rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, the US would be nothing more than a bolthole for economic migrants, wrote the telegraph.

That is what makes the United States ‘exceptional.’ That is what defines our ‘exceptionalism.’ It is not what we have done that makes us the country we are, it is that we believe this, ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.’

How true that is and Obama knows it as well.

The Financial Times correspondent Ed Luce said to Mr. Obama some time back, ‘Could I ask you whether you subscribe, as many of your predecessors have, to the school of American exceptionalism that sees America as uniquely qualified to lead the world, or do you have a slightly different philosophy, and if so, would you be able to elaborate on it?’

Obama replied, ‘I believe in American exceptionalism just as I suspect that the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism.’

Destroying our belief in exceptionalism and trading in the American Dream for a Marxist redistribution of our wealth, while all the time denying it is happening, is the biggest lie of all.

Thomas Jefferson didn’t just give us a Declaration of Independence and James Madison the Constitution, they gave us something to believe in, something that transcends ourselves, something that is the right of every man, woman and child living or who will come to live.

You see that, don’t you?

Jefferson and Madison are dead. Their vision is not. We now are the guardians of these freedoms and we are charged with preserving them for the future generations as our forefathers did for us, as our courageous military have done and continue to do each day.

The Declaration of Independence also says this:

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

Do we need to remind ourselves that the Declaration of Independence gave us more than words, it gave us something to believe in. If we lose that, what is left?

An Atheist can believe these things. God can represent one’s inner spirit, but we all know, if we re being honest, these rights outlined in the Declaration and laid out in the Constitution, are our ‘unalienable rights.’ We do not have the right to trample on others or steal what they’ve earned nor do we have the right to make our needs their burdens – that is something given in generosity of spirit, not by government mandate.

On Friday night’s On the Record, Charles Krauthammer addressed the president’s lawlessness. The ‘cavalier attitude’ is ‘absolutely stunning,’ Charles said.

He continued, Mr. Obama is lawless and Democrats will ‘rue the day.’

The Constitution is pretty clear, at least to Charles Krauthammer and those of us on the right, the “Congress passes the laws and the president executes the laws.”

It’s not simply Obamacare law he is violating, it’s our Bill of Rights and our Separation of Powers. Every American who believes in this country needs to raise their voices in opposition. Call your representatives, write letters to the editor of your local paper, make yourself seen in Townhalls, show up in Congress – do something.

We are losing our Republic. The ‘democracy’ being touted by the far-left is not ‘democracy’ at all, it’s code for statism.

Listen to Charles:
