Against all reason, the Obamanation has succeeded in getting the U.S. Involved in the civil war in Libya. Never mind that we don’t even know who the rebels are or whether they might turn out to be even worse than Gaddafi. Never mind that we are already bogged down in two Muslim wars that we can’t afford. Never mind the lesson from the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, where we supplied the mujahideen resistance with war materiel that is now being used to kill Americans.
But worse still is the way the Obamanation went about getting us involved. Did he ask for a declaration of war as the Constitution requires? NO! Did he even ask the U.S. Congress for authorization, as past presidents have done? NO! Did he even pay lip service to our Constitution? NO!
So, where did he get his authority to engage in this war? From the United Nations. That is correct my friends, this soon-to-be outright dictator openly considers United Nations resolutions superior to our Constitution.
Is this not a naked violation of the oath of office he took, vowing to protect and defend that very Constitution? Of course it is! Should he be impeached IMMEDIATELY? Of course he should!
And what are the valiant leaders of the GOP saying or doing about it? Not one damn thing. They have clearly surrendered their authority to Obama and, in doing so have forfeited any and all reasons for respect, let alone re-election. Predictably, Ron Paul seems to be the lone GOP representative who even noticed that this is all wrong. To his credit, representative Kucinich (a Democrat) has actually suggested impeachment but I see no evidence his party will follow along.
The next question is what will we the sheeple say or do about it? Will the Tea Party organize massive demonstrations against this outrage? Will we start a tax strike, a work stoppage or any other any meaningful activity? I seriously doubt it.
I only thought I was disgusted before. Now I am exploring whole new depths of disgust.
