But that goes without saying, I suppose, since your philosophy of Utopianism has failed every time it's been tried throughout all of human history. But, I digress.
The point is that Democrat Congressional leaders are allowing Barack Obama to absolutely shred Constitutional limits on the Executive Branch -- without so much as a whimper -- and it is destined to come back and haunt them.
Consider the following hypothetical situation: Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has retired and a seat on the Supreme Court is open.
Late one night, President Santorum declares the Senate in recess. He appoints a new Supreme Court Justice who just happens to be Miguel Estrada, a wonderful originalist judge.
After all, the precedent has been set by Obama. He's declared that the Senate is in recess, when it clearly is not. But don't believe me. Check the Senate's website (which happens to be controlled by Democrats).
Without checks and balances in government, President Obama has established a de facto dictatorship. He's said as much himself.
...when Congress refuses to act, and as a result, hurts our economy and puts our people at risk, then I have an obligation as President to do what I can without them. (Applause.) I’ve got an obligation to act on behalf of the American people. And I’m not going to stand by while a minority in the Senate puts party ideology ahead of the people that we were elected to serve. (Applause.) Not with so much at stake, not at this make-or-break moment for middle-class Americans. We’re not going to let that happen.
In other words, Obama spits on separate-but-equal branches of government. He urinates on the Constitution. And he is quickly, inexorably, transforming this nation into a Banana Republic.
So, liberals: you're going to pay a serious price for your failure to stand up for American laws, traditions and ethics.
You will live to regret tolerating lawless, anti-American behavior that undermines the foundations of this Republic.
Worse yet, Obama's behavior -- and its approval by Congressional leaders like the deplorable Harry Reid and the despicable Nancy Pelosi -- represents a slap in the face of every Marine, Soldier, Sailor and Airman, who take an oath to uphold the Constitution -- and then put their lives on the line to follow through with their sworn oath.
The modern Democrat Party is a lawless bunch that must be removed from office in 2012. At every level of government.
