Who Needs Laws Anyway?

~ or, Regularization Through Executive Fiat ~

If you have not heard of this by now, you are not listening to the proper news outlets. You remember how there was a big push for Obamacare and Financial Reform before each bill was passed? Have you wondered why there has not been such a big push for amnesty for illegal immigrants Comprehensive Immigration Reform in the last year and a half? Well, maybe here's why. Here's also what might be the impetus to begin the push for the next amnesty bill, if public outcry forces The Leader to publicly disclaim this strategy. But remember: he has blatantly lied (or else been genuinely, wholly, utterly ignorant of what was written into law) about what he wanted to do before. Remember also: the people in high places in the US government right now serve at the pleasure of The Leader.

Senator Charles Grassley laid hands on a memorandum written to the Director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, which lays out ways that the Executive branch of the US Government could effect comprehensive immigration reforms without having to make a new law. They are working up ways to reduce the threat of deportation to persons who legally ought to be deported. The main idea seems to be simply not prosecuting offenders. Start out with refugees and students, maybe then work your way up to parents of 'anchor babies.' Just don't prosecute them. Sure it would be controversial, but who cares? It's the right thing for America!

If the Executive branch bypasses the Legislative branch by rule making and guidelines, and if lawbreakers never make it to the Judicial branch because illegal activity is not prosecuted, where does the power then lie? It lies wholly under the umbrella of the Executive branch of government, under the benevolent hand of The Leader. I still hold out a faint hope that President Obama is acting out of well-intentioned incompetence. God forbid that I should turn out to be wrong. . . . but ask yourself: is an attempt to consolidate all governmental authority under the President the action of a democrat, or a dictator?

Obama said (on the television show The View) " . . . When you feel as if every single initiative that we're doing is subject to Washington politics instead of is this good for the country, that can be frustrating." and the translation of this is: 'I know what I am doing is right, but that darned legal system and that pesky Congress keep preventing me from carrying out my agenda!' He has a majority in both houses of Congress. He should be able to pass any GOOD idea into law at any time. But Congresscritters know they have to run for re-election sooner or later, and if something they vote for is too outrageous, they might just lose their jobs. So it is pressure from the People which is thwarting the President's 'every single initiative,' not Washington politics!

Consider: if the only reason 20,000,000 people here illegally are not kicked out of the country is because The Leader is in office, do you think they might be inclined to do what they can to help keep him in office? Sure, and so does the current Democrat party leadership. And that is just another reason you need to kick them out of Congress this November.
