Well, the Constitution does

Power from the people, right on

Power from the people, right on

In fact, it demands it.

Obama: “The American people don’t want me just standing around while I wait for Congress to do something.”

The man who would be king may be surprised to discover what “the American people want” once he takes his dictatorial impulses away from the cloistered world of White House supporters and enforces it on those people. When, by executive fiat, he brings in another 5 million illegal aliens, just as a for instance.

    Excellent read. Worth the time. Perhaps Inagua is the author of this piece? Sir?

      Publius – Thanks for the link to the excellent article. The author wisely limited himself to what Obama has actually done to date, but I no need for such caution, so I will say it: When Obama grants effective amnesty to as many millions of Illegals as he can, he will spike the Latino and Asian vote from 70% to at least 80%, thereby insuring Democratic presidential hegemony for at least another generation.

      Obama’s legacy will be extremely significant — he is the President who secured our future as a Welfare State with Open Borders.

        It will be interesting to see what becomes of the Democratic Party’s solid (90%+) black voter support under the scenario that you posit. Still very strong I am sure, but at some point even the blind can see.

          I am pretty certain that the Democratic lock on the Black (and Jewish) vote is secure. Most Blacks and Jews have a visceral resentment of all things Republican. Most of them “know” that Republicans are racist who resent everyone who is not like them.

          These resentments are more powerful than a dispassionate examination of policy. For example very few Blacks consider that large numbers of unskilled foreign-born workers might be a contributing factor to low Black wages and high Black unemployment. Certainly, Black leaders like Jackson, Sharpton, members of the Congressional Black Caucus have never to my knowledge stressed or even noted this.

          We have been very poorly governed under Bush-Obama, and I expect it to continue for a very long time.

      Bookmark the site. It is very good. City Journal is part of the Manhattan Institute that produces some thoughtful and well reasoned pieces, a rarity these days….

    This is doubly disheartening for me, as a New York resident, because I see this inexplicable voter support for presumptuous dictators on not one but two fronts.
    One of my fellow voters and I (and he is an otherwise brilliant man) were having an email disagreement over the Second Amendment, and when he saw me gaining ground he backed off and chirped, “We’ll it’s a great debate, and isn’t it wonderful that we live in a country where it is still safe to have it?”
    I replied, “I must say, with the conduct of the Obama administration, the NSA, the IRS, the militarization of every law enforcement department from the BATFE down to state police, etc etc, I laughed out loud at the irony in the last sentence of your email.
    Oh well. At least you’ll inherit the Earth.”
