Top 25 ‘laws of the land’ under attack by Obama

Since Obama has taken to defending his disastrous health care takeover by pointlessly stating that it is “the law of the land,” it appears a review of their record on the rule of law is in order.

Here are the top 25 “laws of the land” blatantly violated and defied by Obama:

25) Federal energy policies were “the law of the land.”

24) Federal bankruptcy policies were “the law of the land.”

23) The enormously successful welfare reforms of the 1990s were “the law of the land.”

22) Federal policies against foreign campaign contributions were “the law of the land.”

21) Federal policies against using tax dollars for partisan campaign events were “the law of the land.”

20) Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution, which gives Congress the ability to make the laws (as opposed to the EPA), was “the law of the land.”

19) Article 2, Section 2 of the Constitution, which requires the approval of the Senate for the ratification of treaties was “the law of the land.”

18) Federal drug policies were “the law of the land.”

17) Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution, which gives Congress the power of taxation (as opposed to the Executive Branch), was “the law of the land.”

16) Voter ID requirements were “the law of the land.”

15) Letting military votes be counted was “the law of the land.”

14) The Whistleblower Protection Act was “the law of the land.”

13) The right to cast a vote without being intimidated by armed Black Panthers was “the law of the land.”

12) The 1st Amendment right to express dissent and donate to candidates and causes that you believe in without federal retaliation was “the law of the land.”

11) Article 2, Section 2 of the Constitution, which requires the advise and consent of the Senate for all presidential appointees was “the law of the land.”

10) The Defense of Marriage Act was “the law of the land.”

9) The 1st Amendment right to free religious exercise was “the law of the land.”

8) The 4th Amendment protection against unreasonable searches and seizures was “the law of the land.”

7) The 1st Amendment right to freedom of the press was “the law of the land.”

6) Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution, which gives Congress authority over all spending and borrowing, was “the law of the land.”

5) The 5th Amendment right to not be assassinated by the Federal Government without any due process was “the law of the land.”

4) Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution, which gives Congress the power to start wars, was “the law of the land.”

3) The 10th Amendment was “the law of the land.”

2) Our immigration policies were “the law of the land.”

1) The 2nd Amendment was “the law of the land.”

It is Obama himself who has transformed us from a nation of laws into a rogue, hijacked dictatorship of the few, in which the Constitution is no longer even a distant afterthought and policy is determined solely by the whim of unaccountable tyrants issuing arbitrary edicts from on high.

For a party that has so deliberately and relentlessly destroyed the rule of law at every turn to now try and defend this illegally-enacted assault on the 10th Amendment (Obamacare) simply by pointing out that it is “the law of the land” is dishonest and hypocritical in the extreme.

Merely being a law in no way implies constitutional legitimacy, an obligation to blindly comply, or that separation of powers, checks and balances or Congress exercising its power of the purse is “terrorism.” When illegal and immoral laws are enacted, it becomes the responsibility of free people to rise up against it (think Rosa Parks).

And it is absolutely irrelevant that the same Supreme Court that upheld slavery (Dred Scott v. Sanford), segregation (Plessy v. Ferguson), Japanese internment camps (Korematsu v. United States), the criminalization of interracial marriage (Pace v. Alabama), and the criminalization of homosexuality (Bowers v. Hardwick), also upheld Obamacare.

One would think a president who brazenly defies the orders of federal judges and insists on enforcing laws already overturned by Supreme Court would understand this.
