People forget Hitler took over using the laws, not breaking them. And his big crutch were executive orders.

Anybody who tries to take American guns under the decree of an executive order, should be labeled a domestic enemy.

Hard to grand stand on an executive order that works against the same document that his own job was contrived from.

Hell, he might as well write an executive order that sends all of the tax money directly into his bank account.

These people are out of control.

It is Libertarians versus Corpo-Fascists and their henchmen. Choose a side because a revolution is coming.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 31346699


Is it that way in Canada, too? There is so little news coverage of Canada here. I remember seeing lots of US news coverage when I visited relatives up there.

 Quoting: Hardwired


your mileage may vary, but I moved up to Canada in 2003, obtained PR, and then moved back last year

Most I met in Canada *love* Obama and the official view of the US in the news is very much that of MSNBC

I believe in places like Alberta there may be more sympathy for libertarians, but I'm not sure where you are headed

I didn't like the ads on TV askng people to turn in neighbors to Revenue Canada if they suspected their neighbors were living beyond their means...that tattle tale busy body attitude rubs me the wrong way

but everyone has got to go where they feel comfortable.

have you ever thought that maybe your country could use you right now, and that you were born here for a reason?

In this case, the Canadian is RIGHT. You got a plan of action to fix this bullshit? Everyone talking about "I'm aware" as if it means they are better than someone else. What good does being "aware" mean when everyone sits behind their computer? And for the record, I am no better! I am sitting here behind my computer too! I am simply pointing out that most everyone nowdays is aware but not willing to do anything about it. They've got people hamstrung with the fear that if you speak out or organize any constructive and legal measures to attempt to address these corrupt fucks - that you'll be called a terrorist. I don't have the answers either. Everyone knows the problems but has no remedy or answers how to combat them. And then you have to be careful using words like "combat" for fear you are labeled a "threat". I think we all can do better somehow but I don't know what doing better is or how to do it. I keep hoping someone smarter than me might have a solution or course of action.... but everyone else seems to be just like me - aware, fed up, but at a loss for what to do about it.

It's good news. Well not as good as Obama giving up this idea, but we knew he wouldn't do it.

If he's going ahead via executive orders, it means he cannot get what he wants via legislation. This is the best we could hope to do. Debunking Sandy Hook has had a favorable effect!

An EO is far less respected and is more limited in what it can do. Let's just keep the focus on the legislature, to make sure they give him NO legislative fig-leaf or help for what he wants to try.

Re: VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN ADMITS IT!! Obama can use "executive orders" to enact gun control!!
Do you know what abominable means? Smelly. The thing or species in question...stinks. It causes moral revulsion. It is detestable.

Do you know what corruption really means? It means a thing or species is rotting. The word corpus means “body”. In this case the body is decaying; putrefying like a corpse.

Imagine rotting meat with maggots crawling through it. That is "corruption".

These politicians are abominable. They are corruption itself.

The USA is a Republic (not a democracy which is a different form of government which the USA doesn't have). We could choose to have a democracy, but right now we have a Republic. A republic is a representative government that is governed by a Constitution which represents the law of the land. In a Republic, the government acknowledges that people have inerrant rights. Power doesn't come from the government. It is given at birth by being a human being.

We are a constitutional republic. That is not debatable but history and fact.

In such a form of government, the People as a whole (corpus) are the sovereign rulers of the land...not the President. The President is an elected official who acts as an authority and is an administrator. They act in an executive capacity.

In a constitutional republic, the unalienable rights (incapable of being repudiated or transferred to another) of the People (sovereign) cannot be voted away by a majority of voters. That form of government is called a democracy.

In a democracy, the majority of voters may decide what is right. Such forms of government can cause the minority to lose even more power than they minimally have.

The role of the executive in a constitutional republic is to act as a head of State such that foreign policy can be proposed and offered to other nations. The executive act as the commander-in-chief of the armed forces. They execute the instructions of the legislative branch (Congress which makes law). They veto laws which are unconstitutional or which they disagree with as being lawful. They authorize spending. They appoint members of their cabinet or to the judiciary (Federal and Supreme Court). They may on rare occasions pardon someone who has been accused, tried, and then institutionalized in a penitentiary.

They don't make laws. They don't change the Constitution. They don't change the Bill of Rights. While a law can be put forth, and they may support it, they cannot create laws. They may wish to amend the Constitution, but they have no power to do so. They can advise that such actions would be prudent in their executive role. They may not like the Bill of Rights or the interpretation of the Bill of Rights, but it is our most sacred document of the inalienable inherent rights of the Sovereign People of the USA.

As soon as the Constitution was formed, the early political leaders and people saw that there needed to be special amendments to the Constitution. They were the first ten.
“They guarantee a number of personal freedoms, limit the government's power in judicial and other proceedings, and reserve some powers to the states and the public. While originally the amendments applied only to the federal government, most of their provisions have since been held to apply to the states by way of the Fourteenth Amendment. “
[link to en.wikipedia.org]

“THE Conventions of a number of the States, having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best ensure the beneficent ends of its institution.”
This is direct language from the Bill of Rights.

They wanted to make certain that the Federal government didn't abuse its power to restrict the inalienable inherent natural rights of the People.

But they made a provision such that amendments could be made since they couldn't foresee the future. They were not prophets.

Almost all of the Bill of Rights language is about what Congress shall NOT do. It limits the power of the government.

Amendment II
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Even if you think this amendment specifically is about the militia and the definition of the militia, that is bogus and poor critical thinking. It is contained within the Bill of Rights for ALL people, not exclusive to the Militia.

If you don't like it, then if you used the legal framework to amend the Constitution, then you could change it. You could overthrow the government. It doesn't matter if you don't like it.

It's not about liking or disliking. It's about Law creating a framework to protect the people of the USA from a hostile federal government abusing its power.

The executive branch has no powers specifically authorized by the Constitution to enact laws. It most specifically doesn't have power to amend the Constitution.
