If Barack Hussein Obama is reelected, he won’t need a Democrat-controlled Congress to finish “fundamentally transforming” American into a place no American would want to live in. Congress is irrelevant so long as Obama sits atop the faceless, unaccountable, ever-growing, utterly malevolent blob known as the federal bureaucracy:
For example, in the 2,700 pages of ObamaCare there are more than 2,500 references to the Secretary of Health and Human Services. There are more than 700 instances when he or she is instructed that they “shall” do something and more than 200 times when they “may” take at their sole discretion some form of regulatory action. On 139 occasions, the law mentions that the “Secretary determines.” In essence one person, appointed by and reporting to the president, will be in charge of the health care of 310 million Americans once ObamaCare is fully operational in 2014.
The same is true in the 2,319 pages of the Dodd-Frank Financial Reform Act which confers nearly unlimited power on various agencies to control by fiat the nation’s financial, banking and investment sectors. The bill also creates new agencies, such as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, not subject to any oversight by Congress. This overall process was repeated numerous times with other legislation all with the intent of granting unfettered power to the executive branch controlled Barack Obama and his radical associates.
Additionally, the Obama administration has, through its unilaterally determined rule making and regulatory powers, created laws out of whole cloth. The Environmental Protection Agency on a near daily basis issues new regulations clearly out of their purview in order to modify and change environmental laws previously passed and to impose a radical green agenda never approved by Congress. The same is true of the Energy and Interior Departments among many others.
None of these extra-constitutional actions have been challenged by Congress. The left in America knows this usurpation of power is nearly impossible to reverse unless stopped in its early stages.
As for even a Republican Congress stopping him,
Barack Obama knows after his re-election a Republican controlled House and Senate will not be able to enact any legislation to roll back the power previously granted to the Executive Branch or usurped by them. His veto will not be overridden as there will always be at least 145 Democratic members of the House or 34 in the Senate in agreement with or intimidated by an administration more than willing to use Chicago style political tactics.
As ObamaCare proved, vociferous public opposition will be ignored. Obama will continue to exist inside a bubble of moonbattery in which he is the hero who saves America from individualism. The “mainstream” media will keep propagandizing on his behalf, even as the nation is destroyed.
The increasingly arrogant federal government will continue to metastasize explosively. Taxes will shoot into the stratosphere, yet fail to keep pace with the swelling debt. Inflation will wash our savings away. Our standard of living will crumble, along with our liberties. We will leave to the next generation the shabby ruins of what was once America.
On the brighter side, liberals will be able to smugly congratulate themselves on their historic political correctness.
