Sedition, Obama and the Separation of Powers

SEDITION!
Sedition is defined in the dictionary as: “Language or conduct directed against public order and the tranquility of the state.” (F. & W.,1973)

Dr. Thomas Sowell published a column in Investor’s Business Daily, 8/21/12 in which he presented facts about the Obama administration, “quietly but steadily”, dismantling the basic principles that were established at the founding of our national government. He refers to the bedrock principle upon which our constitutional form of government rest. Sowell states that the, “separation of powers into legislative, executive and judicial branches of government is at the heart of the Constitution . . and the Constitution is at the heart of freedom for Americans.” He cites instances in which Obama has violated the principle of separation of powers.

The principle of dividing the immeasurable powers of a government into several parts originated with the empirical observations of human nature and its innate tendency towards self-aggrandizement by the accumulation of power (as in a monarchy or dictatorship).
When they created the Constitution, Washington, Franklin, Madison, et al., accepted the principle of the diffusion of power as the essential guarantor of individual liberties vis-à-vis the darker side of human nature and its inclination towards dominance and subjugation.

Hamilton declared in Federalist 6: “Men are ambitious, vindictive and rapacious.” In a more nuanced statement, Madison wrote:
“Ambition must be made to counteract ambition . . . It may be a reflection of human nature that such devices should be necessary to control the abuses of government. But what is government itself, but the greatest of all reflections on human nature . . . In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself. A dependence on the people is, no doubt, the primary control on the government; but experience has taught mankind the necessity of auxiliary precautions.”  (Federalist 51)

Separating the powers of government was one of the, “auxiliary precautions”, that our founders placed in the Constitution as a form of restraint that would oblige our government officials to control themselves.

At present, Obama and the political faction that term themselves, “Democrats”, have no intention of controlling themselves or in any manner observing the principle of limited powers. Obama’s brazen statement that, “If congress doesn’t act, I will”, is a declaration more fitting for a Bourbon king than the president of a republic. His arbitrary and unilateral methodology of selectively-enforcing, or not enforcing, duly-enacted laws, as shown by his immigration directives and dictates, corresponds to the actions of a dictator. The President with the support of a significant portion of his faction has physically demonstrated that he has no intention of obeying the laws that our American society was built on. As Sowell points out — they are dismantling our Constitutional form of government in letter and spirit. These schismatic behaviors by our government officials have consequences. They are destructive of public order and the tranquility of the state, and should be identified for what they are — SEDITION.

Obama has committed several acts which would put any other man under impeachment, but as long as Reid is in control of the Senate it would be useless to start down that path.  I hope I live long enough to learn what the usurpers have on Reid, to keep him locked into a policy which threatens the careers of Democratic Senators.
