I doubt this is even remotely Constitutional … Will anyone stand and challenge Congress?
The American people are watching as Congress deems and passes our republic to a presidential administrative tyranny. Much like what the German Reichstag did in 1933 with what they labeled “The Enabling Act of 1933″. Essentially what was done is the Reich-stag deemed the executive, through administrative rule-making, could do whatever was wanted, just make up the rules as you go and it’s done. Tyranny resulted, WWII happened and 25 million people lay dead. The German people had no say … or didn’t say anything, take your pick. It was an emergency, didn’t you know, inflation was rampant in Germany, it had to be fixed NOW!!! — or else.
These days in Congress a typical law reading session is going like this …
“We the Congress deem(insert what you want Mr President), that whatever(insert anything you want Mr President), and however you want it to work(insert anything you want Mr President), you think appropriate(insert anything you want Mr President), is hereby ruled to be law by executive administrative fiat.Which explains why Nancy Pelosi said this about health care legislation … “We have to pass the bill in order to find out what’s in it!”
And about the Financial Reform bill Chris Dodd said this …
“It is not a perfect bill(video at link); I will be the first to admit that. We don’t know ultimately how well the ideas we’ve incorporated here will achieve the results we desire. It will take the next economic crisis, as certainly it will come, to determine whether or not the provisions of this bill will actually provide this generation or the next generation of regulators with the tools necessary to minimize the effects of that crisis when it happens.”
In a stunning bit of condescension, this is Congresses way of saying “Screw you America, you’ve got presidential tyranny” … “We’re going golfing” — Congress.
Why not just have Congress pass a law that says “Here is the formally Constitutional Republic, Mr President, we Congress have decided making real laws with committees, hearings and such, making the Bill’s language public before voting, in the sunshine, is just too hard, so do what you want with the republic Mr President.” Call it the American Tyranny Enabling Act of 2010 and be done with it.
…… This cannot stand.
