Shutdown over: What next?
‘Punishment’ by the Dictator
Another day passes with no compromise from the White House. Americans are dealing with an petulant and immature man, Mr. Obama. Not only is he not compromising, he is throwing a tantrum and punishing Americans. Mr. Obama apparently has no intention of hearing the voices of the American people through our Representatives. During the enactment of the AHCA, Democrats controlled the executive and legislative branches and shut out Republicans entirely from the discussion, even when the majority of Americans did not want the ACHA.
Mr. Obama intends to punish Americans until he gets what he wants. Our voices mean nothing to him. For he has a vision of democratic socialism, which to the layman means he is forcing upon us a single party totalitarianism.
Closing parks with police barricades, closing the oceans, attacking veterans, and the list goes on, for no other reason but to inflict maximum pain upon the American people, speaks of a childlike mind.
Mr. Obama, you are not a king. You do not own this country. You do not control the people. We control you. The House of Representatives represents the people. They are our voice, our representation. Prior to the repeal of the 17th Amendment, Senators were to be the representatives of the states. The Executive Branch was created to manage the execution of the laws according to the mandate and direction of Congress (The People). The House of Representatives has the power of funding or not funding the government.
This administration has demonstrated that is has nothing good in store for America’s future. Mr. Obama has nothing but contempt for half the American population. He has created a divided America. Perhaps it is time for the States to sit Mr. Obama in the corner for a time-out. The federal government is dysfunctional under Mr. Obama. The states can perform the governmental responsibilities far more efficiently than the federal government. I could see a solution where the states disconnect from the federal government, reclaim federal government lands, parks, etc., and let the power players in Washington fade into the abyss.
