President Obama Should Be Arrested And Jailed!
There. I said it.
Now, the NSA can come knocking at my door because I said something bad about our President. We have all heard stories about how cars have been pulled over because they sported a bumper sticker that was less than praise oriented towards our Chief Executive. That may be nothing compared to what I just said.
Plus, now we know that the NSA is reading our emails, and documenting our home telephone and cellular telephone calls. Add that all together and you have an out-of-control government. In view of that kind of snooping, can reading all our blogs and comments be far behind? Freedom of speech has seen better days. We voted for change and we got it.
Why should the President of The United States be arrested? For the simple reason that he is breaking the law by changing laws that were passed by the US Congress, and signed by the Chief Executive. It makes no difference whether the Chief Executive who did the initial signing was the same one changing the law. The law is still being circumvented.
So, how do you enforce the laws with a rogue President? Do you publish a court opinion telling him to cease and desist? What if he were to thumb his nose at the Supreme Court. There is no way for the Supreme Court to enforce its rulings. There is precedent for this when Andrew Jackson ignored a Supreme Court ruling about the Cherokee Indians being defrauded of their land by the State of Georgia. This situation is called nonacquiescence. Jackson moved the Cherokees out of Georgia to Oklahoma in an event that is called the Trail of Tears, today. Andrew Jackson was never punished for this crime.
In our national history there has been no solution for the rogue Executive, or other branch of government. We are truly screwed.
There are only two solutions that have played out in world history to reign in rogue governments. One is by military coup, and the other is by a civil revolution. I support neither.
If you think this kind of thing is rare, just read the history of the last two-hundred years. Or, you can just watch the TV news tonight to see what is happening to the poor souls in the Ukraine. Take heed of the protests, fires burning in the streets, and the police shooting citizens. Their government has gone rogue.
