Impeach Obama? Maybe.

19 Mar

I’m not one of those people who go around calling for impeachment just because I don’t like a certain politician. When there were calls for President Clinton to be impeached, I thought it was silly. When there were calls from the left to impeach President Bush, I thought they were absurd.

However, if President Obama signs off on the “Slaughter Solution” he should be impeached. Not because I disagree with him on health care, though I do, but because the Slaughter Solution is 100% unconstitutional. The President swore to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States. How can he do that when violating the Constitution? According to Article 1, section 7 of the U.S. Constitution:

All bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other Bills.

Every Bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall, before it become a Law, be presented to the President of the United States; If he approve he shall sign it, but if not he shall return it, with his Objections to that House in which it shall have originated, who shall enter the Objections at large on their Journal, and proceed to reconsider it. If after such Reconsideration two thirds of that House shall agree to pass the Bill, it shall be sent, together with the Objections, to the other House, by which it shall likewise be reconsidered, and if approved by two thirds of that House, it shall become a Law. But in all such Cases the Votes of both Houses shall be determined by Yeas and Nays, and the Names of the Persons voting for and against the Bill shall be entered on the Journal of each House respectively. If any Bill shall not be returned by the President within ten Days (Sundays excepted) after it shall have been presented to him, the Same shall be a Law, in like Manner as if he had signed it, unless the Congress by their Adjournment prevent its Return, in which Case it shall not be a Law.

Every Order, Resolution, or Vote to which the Concurrence of the Senate and House of Representatives may be necessary (except on a question of Adjournment) shall be presented to the President of the United States; and before the Same shall take Effect, shall be approved by him, or being disapproved by him, shall be repassed by two thirds of the Senate and House of Representatives, according to the Rules and Limitations prescribed in the Case of a Bill.

In other words, there must be a RECORDED vote. Congress just can’t deem something passed. This is pretty clear to most people and I would hope a Constitution Expert, like Obama thinks he is, would understand it. If the Slaughter Solution is used, I believe that the Supreme Court will find it unconstitutional. Then what? We are stuck with a President and members of Congress who violated the Constitution. The worst part is, they know exactly what they are doing.

President Obama and Nancy Pelosi are trying to save their own skin while putting at risk our Constitution, liberty, and even our lives. I don’t care if Obama destroys his own party, but I do care that he is trying to destroy the rest of us.

Sunday, March 21 isn’t the end. We must keep fighting for the United States. We must keep fighting for our freedom and liberty. We must keep fighting for our Constitution.

    If Obama signs a “deemed” bill, I agree it will be an impeachable offense. It is now unfortunate that the Founders did not include a recall provision for Congress. They considered and rejected it, going with the length of terms instead. I wonder if it ever occurred to them that members of Congress would conjoin to actively subvert the Constitution based on legalized bribery, stupidity, corruption and whatever else is driving this insane behavior. It is clear the Constitution needs to be amended to restore the Balance of Power, but with these crazies running around, I’d hate to see a constitutional convention. The States are going to have to take action to propose amendments to reign Congress in.

    Sorry – one afterthought. America has been strong because of the rule of law, not men. When the lawmakers themselves abandon the rule of law, then what is left?
