"When the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic." - Benjamin Franklin;
"And when politicians find that honor and character matter less than buying votes and a constituency, that too will herald the end of the Constitution. When that happens we must work tirelessly to change their minds, or their occupation!" - Hoping The Blind Will See

More Constitutional Disdain From Obama

You may recall that a few months ago President Manuel Zelaya was relieved of his presidential responsibilities, ousted from power, and exiled out of Honduras. You may also remember at the time that President Obama called it a coup, and that America did not recognize the man acting in the presidential capacity until new elections could commence. However, Honduras followed it's constitutional guidelines, and the decision to relieve Zelayas was upheld by their supreme court.

Now, from a President who says he won't meddle in other country's politics (and remember his stand (or lie down) during the Iranian uprising) we have this news. America has brokered a deal that would return Zelayas to power. There is still an election scheduled for November 29th, but he will be ineligible to run. But just the fact that Obama has so much disdain for Constitutional law - in both this country and abroad - is appalling. The rules do not seem to apply to this President - never have, never will. Leaving the door that wide open for abuse of power is something we should all be afraid of!

Wake Up America!
