Null & Void: the Constitution!

U.S. Presidential flag, 1960-present (not usually called a "standard" in official U.S. government terminology). It is defined in Executive Order 10860. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
What is the role of the President of the United States?

According to the Constitution, a very select and limited role in authority. If we read under Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution it is laid clear and concise so as to easily facilitate even the least of the laity. So put, the President is the civilian head of the military and militias of the several states when called to service of the nation; power of pardons and reprieves in crimes against the United States; to make treaties with the advice and consent of the Senate; and appointments of officers of the government.

Easily understood, right? One would gather that the fulfillment of such would limit any over-reaching of the Executive Branch. Not so. As Barack Obama has so often done in his one term. He has overstepped his authority once again.

Before we go further, let me just say that he is not the first President to do so. He is however one of the few that have blatantly disregarded the powers of the Legislative Branch. Thus, he has abandoned his duty and obligation to fulfill his oath of office.

Clearly put, he has not defended and upheld the Constitution. He has shown himself unbecoming of the office of President of the United States.

In his latest disregard of his duties as such, he signed orders to allow for the amnesty of some 800,000 illegal immigrants. The establishment has stated that it is not amnesty, yet I see it as such. In doing so, he has usurped the constitutional duties of the Legislative Branch.

It matters not that such authority is granted to the Congress, by way of the Constitution. He has committed an act of treachery against these united States. Such actions are referenced in the likes of third-world dictators.

Barack Obama has even gone as far as saying that he had to do what was right, even it meant doing it without Congress. What is he thinking? Or is he even thinking at all?

Clearly, it is a blatant attempt to shore up his waning Hispanic vote. He is pandering to one group on the plight of the whole. Disregarding all responsibilities, he has arrogantly show disregard for "We the people".

In summary, let me just say That I invoke my FIRST AMENDMENT rights. These rights are the standard of freedom in this country. For in opinion, the voice of the people can be heard. The Constitution has cited the structure of a Republic, with sovereignty placed in the hands of "We the people". Thus being said, there is NO seat of power for a usurping dictator.
