Can the President Rewrite Federal Law?

In practice, the oath of office is a useless play of pageantry. There is no enforcement mechanism provided in the Constitution and it has no meaning to the Godless.

The enforcement mechanism in the Constitution is impeachment & removal from office. Unfortunately, such a drastic act requires a drastic mechanism: BOTH the House and the Senate must concur on removal. And since the Senate is in Democrat Party hands, it isn't going to happen.

Squawking about not getting your way is unbecoming.

The enforcement mechanism is through impeachment, contempt powers, and veto proof legislation that undoes executive orders. Unfortunately, Congress voted away most of the powers of the Legislative and Judicial branches during the 20th century by creating a self serving, unconstitutional bureaucratic branch of the governent.

It's one that has bothered me for a long time.

Everyone always screams, "He violated his oath of office!!"
Meanwhile, he's laughing at us and saying, "Yeah?, do something about it!!!"
Of course, he knows there's not a damn thing we can do about it.
It's meaningless, as is the whole political process at this point.

Vote Dems out because they did this and you'll get the Republicans that will do that.

Meanwhile, when was the last time the guy you voted in to replace the old one actually REVERSED something that was passed by the old one?

And when they don't, they lose support which hands power back to the old guys again.

And so it continues, we vote hoping to undo the damage the last guy caused and hoping to get good things done.


Here we go again. Is the Constitution merely a guideline to be consulted by those it purports to regulate, or is it really the supreme law of the land? If it is just a guideline, then it is meaningless, as it only will be followed by those in government when it is not an obstacle to their purposes. If it is the supreme law of the land, what do we do when one branch of government seizes power from another and the branch that had its power stolen does nothing about it?

Late last week, President Obama, fresh from a series...
