Obama is a dictator

Many have called for the impeachment of President Obama, saying that Mr. Obama is the most dangerous and destructive president ever and is far worse than former target, President Richard Nixon.


Mr. Obama has thrown the U.S. Constitution under the bus and is ruling as a dictator. As evidence, Mr. Obama's delay of the employer mandate in Obamacare, the changing of types of plans available under Obamacare, ignoring our immigrations laws, refusing to deport illegal immigrants, enacting stricter gun-control measures without Congressional legislation, sealing his presidential records, creating government offices and czars without authorization, and changing the pay grades of selected federal employees without authority.

For some work-a-day Americans, these burrs under the saddle might seem insignificant; however, Mr. Obama's unlawful actions could lead to a troubling scenario: "A Republican Congress is elected and repeals Obama Care over a Democrat President's veto. The president refuses to enforce the repeal. The Supreme Court rules that the president's refusal is unconstitutional. The president denounces the ruling and refuses to be bound by it. If the President persists in rejecting all authority other than his own, the outcome would depend on the side taken by the Armed Forces..."

It seems every week since President Obama took office, we've been hearing that another top military leader has been summarily fired, despite decades of loyal service and valuable experience protecting the nation. It's actually closer to one every 8.8 days, a staggering 200 military brass shown the door in less than five years.

Thus, one wonders if this Stalin-like purge of generals and admirals is a precautionary step taken by Mr. Obama in advance of a descent into the darkness of a constitutional crisis.
