Obama abuses rules for executive orders
The Obama White House is abusing the provision for executive orders by instituting them more than any prior president. Both parties have used executive orders to bypass the Congress of the United States. It is time the American citizens put pressure on their senators and congressmen and congesswomen to pass a law to eliminate this procedure.
The executive orders provision is a door to dictatorship. When our country was founded, the founding fathers, in their wisdom, decided on three parts of government, i.e., the executive branch, the judicial branch and the legislative branch. The reasoning behind this was that no one part of the government would have access to full control of the country. The Obama administration has been circumventing the Congress because it cannot get its liberal agenda passed. There is a reason this agenda does not get passed: Elected officials, representing their districts in the United States, do not agree with them.
Our country cannot afford to sit back and let the Obama administration do as it pleases. If we continue to allow executive orders to persist, then there will come a time when there will be no use for the Congress of the United States and we will, unfortunately, come under control of a dictatorship.
As I said before, both parties have been guilty of using executive orders. However, this administration has grown quite fond of them and that is dangerous. Write or phone your senator and representative and tell them it is time Congress passed a law to derail this order for the sake of preserving the Constitution of our country.
