Barack Obama Bypasses the Constitution

President Obama's lack of respect for the U.S. Constitution has reached the point that he thinks he can act like a king and do whatever he wants. In addition to giving away our money recklessly, he has announced his intention to refuse to enforce laws he doesn't like, even though the U.S. Constitution makes it the prime duty of the President to "take care that the laws be faithfully executed."

For example, Obama announced that he won't obey 20 provisions in the $1 trillion spending bill. He specifically repudiated the provision that "none of the funds" in this law may be used, "in whole or in part, to advocate or promote gun control." Obama also said he will ignore a provision in the appropriation law that bars taxpayer funds from being spent for the "salaries and expenses" of his so-called White House czars. We are particularly annoyed by his attempt to run our government with czars instead of with Americans confirmed in the proper way by the U.S. Senate.

In a sneaky Christmas Eve release, Obama overturned the U.S. law that prohibits internet gambling. He used a Justice Department legal opinion (which had been kept secret for the previous four months) to open the door for all U.S. states to sell lottery tickets over the internet, and to encourage varieties of online gambling such as poker.

Obama is even refusing to enforce one of our most important laws: the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and is having his Justice Department try to get supremacist judges to declare it unconstitutional, even though the Government Accountability Office has identified more than 1,000 federal laws that depend on DOMA's traditional definition of marriage. It is an outrage that Obama refuses to obey and enforce the laws he doesn't like.

May God protect our Country from tyranny and oppression form self-proclaimed dictators and elitists in the political arena. May the Lady of America guide our Country back to the principles that gave us the God-given freedoms that have been won by the blood of heroes in wars and international challenges. May the Holy Spirit give Wisdom to those who defend the Constitution of the United States of America from the secular, humanism that has lowered our standards of value for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. In God We Trust!
