Liberals. Can we be honest about what you are afraid of?
It is not Trump you are afraid of. It’s not even a Republican. It’s not Gary Johnson or Ron Paul or Ted Cruz or any other conservative. What you are truly afraid of is that you have unleashed unilateral Presidential monarchical powers with Obama and now that you’ve let the toothpaste out of the tube, it’s dawning on you that Trump now has the same tyrannical powers.
Let’s chalk this up to massive short sightedness on your part. It was okay when it was YOUR GUY saying, and I quote…
“We’re not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we’re providing Americans the kind of help they need. I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone,” Obama said Tuesday as he convened his first Cabinet meeting of the year.
Obama continued: ”And I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions and administrative actions that move the ball forward in helping to make sure our kids are getting the best education possible, making sure that our businesses are getting the kind of support and help they need to grow and advance, to make sure that people are getting the skills that they need to get those jobs that our businesses are creating.”
And now that it AIN’T YOUR GUY at the helm, you’re terrified.
You should have thought this through. While Obama was ignoring Congress and slamming through his executive orders to just make new laws while dropping bombs, expanding wars, approving surveillance, stoking class and racial warfare and running roughshod over the Constitution, not only did the anti-war left shrivel up and disappear, but Liberals happily rejoiced or remained malevolently silent while “their Dear Leader” did as he pleased, bypassing Congress, and writing new rules or amending his own legislation as it suited him.
I can hear the Liberal backlash already, “But Bush did it!” Yes, and so did Clinton, and so have many other Republicans and Democrats. Which is why I am Libertarian, and you should be too. We teach our children that two wrongs don’t make a right, and then we support the wrong when it’s right for us. In the end, all either side gets is exactly what they want until the other side comes along and takes it all away – an easy task when it comes to executive orders – not so easy when it’s congressional legislation, but that is all the world has boiled down to – the “me” generation of the impulse buy. I want what I want when I want it, and executive orders serve me well in this, until they want what they want when they want it, and then I am out in the cold all alone. And angry.
This is why Libertarianism is superior. First, the President has no executive order authority, among other things. In a Libertarian Government, Hitler could win and he would accomplish absolutely nothing because The People and Congress make all the laws and have all the power, inferior only to the individual States and The People. Second, the goal of any Libertarian is to take over the entire Government and leave you alone. This cannot be said of any of the mainstream two-party (one party really) candidates – who want to be involved in as many of your daily decisions as possible.
Meanwhile, the Washington Post gleefully defended Obama’s abuse of executive orders..
Ruth Marcus of the Washington Post is the latest to defend President Barack Obama’s use–past, present, and future–of executive orders to circumvent Congress. She argues that his “push-the-envelope moves” are “within the bounds of the modern presidency.”
The gamble you took was that a liberal like yourself and Obama would remain in power, in perpetuity, so the double-barrel shotgun of Big Government tyranny couldn’t be turned around and pointed at you. And now that you are staring back up the length of that cold steel reality, you’re begging for your mommy.
Too bad, so sad. You reap what you sow.
