Showing that he clearly has no idea whatsoever how our system of government works, Allen West went on a radio show and declared that Obamacare is “not the law of the land” but is an “edict” that shows that President Obama is establishing a monarchy.
When I look at the fact that Obamacare is not the law of the land, it’s an edict, I see this as King Obama, not President Obama, who is making rules that apply to certain people that kowtow or appeal to his vision of destruction of this great constitutional republic. So, I think that we have gone beyond an imperial presidency. We almost have a monarchy that has been established in the United States of America.
This is not a constitutional republic anymore, and I think people need to understand that, and with the passage of this CR and this debt limit extension, we have definitely take a large leap toward losing the great republic that men such as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, George Mason, John Adams gave us as an inheritance. And shame on us as an American people to fall into this, in letting this usurper and this petty charlatan take this great country away from us.
Hmmm. Let’s review. The Affordable Care Act was 1) passed by a majority of both houses of Congress; 2) signed into law by a duly elected president; and 3) upheld by the Supreme Court. By what possible reasoning, other than completely irrationality and special pleading, is it “not the law of the land”? Only on Planet Wingnuttia could someone say something that monumentally idiotic and be taken seriously.
