What Democratic Government
Absolute power corrupts absolutely and President Obama’s actions are proof of this statement. Taking matters into his own hands and making decisions as if he lived in a non-democratic country and were a king ruling over his subjects. Would this be happening if a judge in 2011 had done his job back then; when a law suit was placed against Obama for doing this very thing back then? Back then Obama used the excuse that with the United Nations backing he didn’t need the vote or even to consult the Congress of the United States of America; what is his excuse this time?
Any use of weapons can and usually is considered an act of war and all nations are aware of this fact. Is what Obama doing an act of Humanitarianism? Probably, but without the authority of the Congress of the United States of America it is the same as waging a one man war. The United States of America is but one of many nations that make up the United Nations and even the United Nations will not interfere in what is happening in Syria as yet. The United Nations have not even had the opportunity to bring back the evidence and process it as yet, but Obama wants to act right now.
Think of it like this; we arrest people all the time that killed their own family member’s that were suffering from one disease or another even though what they did was a Humanitarian act; why do you think we do that? Anybody could claim a murder was done to stop somebody’s suffering, but it is still murder none the less. The court decides whether the killing was in fact a humanitarian act or simply just a convenient way to rid themselves of an unwanted family member. It is a form of checks and balances that keeps people from committing a crime against one another.
Essentially; this is what the Congress of the United States of America is for, the American people’ checks and balances. The United Nations is for, regarding the world of nations; checks and balances. To act without either authority is against all laws that make this world the safer place we live within today. In essence Obama is setting the world back hundreds of years, by acting without either authority. What Democratic Government is this?
