Charge 1: By-passing Congress to make governmental appointments
The link provides no evidence of the claim. Could you point me where lower-level judicial appointments are mandated by the Constitution?
Of course, prior presidents have done the same. It's just that we currently have an opposition party abusing filibuster, and a spineless coward for the head of the Senate. Until very recently anyway.
Or maybe it's because the one holding office happens to be black.
Charge 2: Violating the separation of church and state
News flash for the misogynist: women's contraception is about more than just stopping babies from happening. Even if it wasn't, it has no bearing on the separation of church and state.
Charge 3: Limiting freedom of speech
Wow, look at how unbiased the source is here! As if free speech zones are new to this administration.
Charge 4: Soliciting foreign campaign contributions, which violates electoral lawThe Republicans would never stand for such a thing!
These are outrageous abuses of power by a man who sits in the highest office in the land and should conduct himself with all the dignity required of such a position. He should have made sure that his campaign contributions were above reproach. There should be NO doubt as to the validity of his contributors as American citizens, but the fact of the matter is, he can't solicit enough donations from within his own country. The American people are the ones who have had to deal with his policies, and have had to suffer through his 'hope and change'.
I agree wholeheartedly with you about being in an economic crisis. But the government regulations on business and free trade haven't helped. Jobs have left our country in record numbers, despite Obama's campaign promise to crack down on companies that outsource jobs overseas.
And Romney is going to do better? He's promised to take care of China just as outsourcing has moved to the rest of Asia for the most part, and is beginning to pick up in Africa. It strikes me as sickly cynical, on top of it all.
The man and his policies have failed. Period. He had his chance, and he's saddled us with incredible debt, a health care reform that destroys our health care system,
Interesting that this creep doesn't actually cite where
any of this supposed stuff is. It starts off with a picture of the Constitution, spews some fearmongering, and cites nothing.
For those who might doubt the nature of this threat, I suggest they consult the source, the US Constitution, and Bill of Rights. There you can see exactly what we are about to have taken from us.
Nothing but a demagogue.
and has weakened us as a world power (no links here, just look at all the devastating Muslim protests around the world...and we're supposed to believe they came from a Youtube preview of a movie?).
Basically the muslim protests are stirred up by Imams and other various religious leaders who pick an issue of some sort and drive their crowd into a frenzy. The Youtube video is just 'an excuse'. It's a form of dickwaving by people who have a little bit of power over a larger number of highly desperate, sad individuals.
He has failed. It's time for someone else to take office. Our other choice is Mitt Romney. The left has blasted him again and again, but the fact of that matter is this...he deserves a chance to prove his naysayers wrong. Obviously, not everyone will be happy. But his tax plan is clear and sound, he demolished Obama in the Denver debate, and he's ready to lead. That's what we need. A leader. Not a teleprompter.
The only way Mitt Romney's tax math works is to eliminate the mortgage interest deduction.
That would be political suicide for any congressman who voted for that.
Those with the money make the jobs. That's the truth of a capitalist society.
Hell no. Those with a need for something make jobs for those willing to provide it. That's the truth of economics period. Whether you try to enforce communism on someone or not.
That capitalist society has made our country the super power that it is today. America is responsible for 25% of the world's GDP!
And when the top tax rate was 94%, America was responsible for more than half the world's GDP!
The United States once outproduced the entire rest of the planet, combined.
We can do so again.
But if it happens, it won't be because Americans decided that the rich need to get richer. It will be another transformation of society akin to the rise of the middle class that proved Marx wrong on a very fundamental level.
That alone proves that our economic system is the greatest in the world. That's how these millionaires and billionaires have made their fortunes. Who are we to fault them for their industrious nature?
Have you ever met the sort of people who run casinos?
You can certainly call them industrious. But it's not hard to feel morally superior to the sort of person who will smile as elderly patrons gamble away their retirement in diapers.
Yeah, some people earned their wealth. We don't fault them. There's a need for people who can manage large quantities of resources. On the other hand, just because someone has a billion dollars does not make them 'industrious', much less 'faultless'.
