Reuters Calls for Obama to Act as Dictator to Ban Guns
December 19, 2012
In a shocking article that seems to completely toss the Constitution out the window, Reuters announced President Obama’s official dictatorship in a story it published yesterday, “Even Without Congress, Obama Could Act to Restrict Guns.”
The subheading begins, “Unburdened by re-election worries and empowered by law to act without Congress, U.S. President Barack Obama could take action…” Because he has won a second term, the story points out that, “Obama does not need to fear alienating voters who favor gun rights” and that he can, “press ahead without lawmakers” to pass executive orders restricting our 2nd Amendment rights.
According to this story, it’s official: America is under an admitted dictatorship.
This country’s government is supposed to have a system of checks and balances, with three branches of government to keep the balance of power in check—executive, legislative and judicial. America is not limited to an executive branch that controls everything.
The Reuters story continues, “His administration has the power to issue executive orders or new rules, options that Obama is likely to consider in combination with possible new laws.”
So, let’s get this straight: Obama’s administration—a body that is administrative in nature only—now has the “power” to issue not only executive orders which completely circumvent Congress, but “new rules” as well. Where in the Constitution are “rules” mentioned?
