Yes, concerned...God is still on the throne no matter what man messes up. My hope is that our country will turn to Him...

Kozy I think what we need is people that do not currently hold public office nor has ever held public office. Once someone has been in office they seem to just accept that the way things are done never questioning the constitutionality of their actions, and the beat just goes on and on and on. I really don't see anyone that is not already part of the system, that has shown any interest in it. For one thing they would have to be wealthy because of the amount of money that it takes to combat the big money good old boy candidate's lies and scare tactics that they use about their opponents. Millions are spent on tearing down your opponents character and never really putting forth any kind of remedies. If I did not believe Romans 13:1 "For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God." I think I would lose my mind. I take great comfort in knowing that what ever happens that almighty God is still on the throne and in the end his will is what will be done.

You're correct, concerned...politics has become dirty. And, sadly, it's hard to find a decent person to vote for between those who lie and those who cheat. When a good person runs, those apposed just make up stories, tell outright lies or scare folks into believing the person is bad because he is a Christian or gives to a charity or just might believe people ought to be working rather than getting everything free...or that government needs to change.

It is time for all people to rise up and find someone different who can actually cut the size of the government, bring back or freedoms and stop lying to us and the world...and get rid of our massive debt. A person with courage who will fix the broken things and change things to be better. A President that will unite us rather than divide us.

We need a change...who is that person?

notSocialist You are probably right in this case. I am sure they realize that if they tried to do anything to this president that there would be rioting in the streets. But the federal government (house, senate, presidency and local governments) for many, many decades have been trampling under foot our freedoms and our constitution. The government has been getting bigger and bigger and more and more intrusive into the lives of American citizens. Every time they flap their jaws about protecting our freedom they take a little more of it away. Face it, the only reason professional politicians even put on a pretense of wanting to protect our freedom is because they want to exploit it to gain more power for themselves. If they think they can gain brownie points they will speak great freedom speeches, but all it is, is empty words used to stir up the masses to get them to vote for them.

Beaumont perhaps the first 4 or 5 presidents followed the constitution. It has been down hill for many years. It has just escalated with the federal government getting bigger and bigger each year. And like TS1227 says you can not blame it on anyone party or person. Human greed and hunger for power has been our down fall and it has been going on for a long long time. Our Constitution has been slowly eroded away shortly after it was written. The destruction of the constitution has just seemed to escalate at a faster rate in the last few decades and seems to be moving at a faster rate since the turn of the century.

Every single person in Washington is disconnected with it. To blame it on one single person or party anymore is overly simplistic and only serves as a complete line of BS to push an agenda.

But, then again and most important is that the few who placed themselves about God, were allowed to remove Him from everything and we allowed it to happen. Without God, we are a lost people.

I keep praying for a revival.

But, then again...where are we the people who just let this all happen? I read postings that are hatful, mean, silly and stupid but what is anyone doing about it? I talk to many, write letters, go to political meetings and town halls and...I don't see changes.

Yes, sadly. They are not doing their job. That's why I keep posting, mostly by my self, unfortunately, that "we need a change!" You are correct!

Kozy I agree with your assessment of the government and that it needs to be reduced and that congress should be Part time and paid part time wages. There is no need for them to amass all these laws they put on the books. But you stated the following "But, back to the subject...he should either stop doing his own thing or be impeached and frankly put in jail" I agree but who is it that can do either of these things and are not doing it? It is a congress that is not doing their job. So where do the chickens need to go home to roost on this issue? It needs put back on the backs of a Congress's failure to do their job doesn't it?

And before we forget the question...President Obama’s increasingly grandiose claims for presidential power are inversely proportional to his shriveling presidency. Desperation fuels arrogance as, barely 200 days into the 1,462 days of his second term, his pantry of excuses for failure is bare, his domestic agenda is nonexistent and his foreign policy of empty rhetorical deadlines and red lines is floundering. And at last week’s news conference he offered inconvenience as a justification for illegality.

Explaining his decision to unilaterally rewrite the Affordable Care Act, he said: “I didn’t simply choose to” ignore the statutory requirement for beginning in 2014 the employer mandate to provide employees with health care. No, “this was in consultation with businesses.”

And, so what about the law? What about his oath?

BTW, ladybug...it's not the amount! I wouldn't care if he taxed us 50 cents per year. It's illegal! I care if folks are hungry and need help but I don't believe they need a smart phone at working people's expense. I also don't care about your WMD comments that have nothing to do with the President breaking the laws of our land...whether you agreed with Bush or not, he asked congress for permission as well as the United Nations and the rest is just history.

concerned, I completely agree with you and ladybug about the whole bunch (or most of them) in Washington. The question was about the President and the Constitution. I have stated many times that congress should be part time...paid part time...and hold office for a limited time. I have also said that they should be required to get rid of all the old laws still on the books that just add fodder to the people ho fight our way of life.

And, we wouldn't be debating all this if Washington were a quarter the size it is...it's criminal! But, back to the subject...he should either stop doing his own thing or be impeached and frankly put in jail!

Kozy I agree with you about Obama. But what is our congressmen and senators doing about it? Nothing!! They are just as much to blame. They have not kept up with their oath either. They have a procedure at their disposal that they can take but they don't do it. It is called impeachment. They are suppose to be doing checks and balances to protect the constitution. No matter how much they talk about it they are not doing anything to correct the situation. Talk is cheap and all they are doing is lining up their support for the next election battle. Very few of them, if any, take their oath of office seriously. This country is in a sad state of affairs. And like I said when the foundation has crumbled the house will fall.
