The Obama Coup - An Imperial Presidency

Caesar Obama the First.
Hail Caesar.  The anointed one issued an Imperial edict that the laws of the United States are no longer valid.  By Command of Caesar himself immigration laws will no longer be enforced and illegals will be given work permits to compete directly with millions of unemployed American citizens for work.

Imperial Obama abolishes laws at will  -  Congress quivers under their desks in fear and does nothing
  • A ball-less and spineless Congress and a craven American people looking for free bread and circuses have created the Imperial Presidency.
  • Caesar Obama acts to import millions of new immigrants to compete for jobs with American citizens.
  • Our Constitutional Republic is vanishing before our eyes.

The End of the Roman Republic 
“When I notice how carefully arranged his hair is and when I watch him (Caesar) adjusting the parting with one finger, I cannot imagine that this man could conceive of such a wicked thing as to destroy the Roman constitution.”   -   Marcus Tullius Cicero  -  Senator, Consul, Constitutionalist  (106BC - 43BC)

By Gary;
I often wondered, did the average citizen of the late Roman Republic know his Constitution was being abolished?  Everything around the Romans appeared normal.  The Senate and legislative assemblies went about their meetings, elections were held, the courts operated and business conducted its daily work. 
But something different was in the air.  The leadership class split into factions and no longer respected the Constitution.  Instead the leaders looked to enrich themselves and their supporters at the expense of the state and common people.
Endless waves of foreigners and slaves were imported into Rome causing massive unemployment, poverty and political unrest among the citizens.  To maintain their control, the leadership class responded with "free" bread and circuses to keep the common people fed and entertained so the ruling Elite could continue to line their pockets from the Treasury. 
The rule of law broke down.  There was Civil War.  The Republic died and the Empire was born.

Flash forward to Today  -  The description of the late Roman Republic sounds like modern America.  A near total disregard of our Constitution, the centralization of police power in Washington, a leadership class looting the Treasury on behalf of their supporters and a cradle-to-grave Welfare State to keep the common people from rising up against their Masters.
Now by a wave of his royal hand Caesar Obama issued an Imperial edict abolishing the immigration laws of the United States. Obama has just opened a floodgate for young illegal immigrants in the U.S. to compete with unemployed Americans citizens of all skin colors and ethnic backgrounds for a limited number of jobs.
Under the new Imperial policy as many as 1.4 million illegal immigrants under age 30 will be able to apply for the amnesty, allowing them to work.
“If the president says we’re not going to enforce the law, there’s really nothing anyone can do about it,” University of Pennsylvania constitutional law professor Kermit Roosevelt said. “It’s clearly a political calculation.”
“I see a tidal wave coming,” said Brad Botwin, president of Help Save Maryland, a group that opposes legalization for undocumented immigrants. “Half of our college graduates today can’t find jobs, and the unemployment rate for high-school-aged Americans is extremely high. This is unfair to U.S. citizens and legal immigrants who are out there struggling to get ahead.”
What's that going to do to the unemployment number? Are we going to count them looking for work or not? If we don't, the number won't drop. If we do, the number will go up. 
Next is home mortgages and student loans. Those are the next two things that are going to happen this fall by yet another Imperial edict.
The Republic is dead.  Long live Caesar and the Empire.
(Washington Post)

"I have a name for this new Obama immigration policy. In case you haven't heard, folks, very quickly. The regime today told the border agents: "If you catch young illegals, let 'em go and grant 'em work permits." No more deportation of illegal immigrants. They are to be given work permits and they can stay in the country. So what this is is "Catch, Release, Vote."  
-   Rush Limbaugh

The Republic is dead - Long live the Empire.
That "oath" that political hacks take to protect the Constitution is a fraud. Both Big Government Socialist parties are happy to give the elected Caesar-of-the-Moment the war power to do whatever the Hell he wants to and kill who he wants to. 

Members of Congress have no interest in doing their job. Their only interest is in strutting in front of TV cameras and in continuing to hold their offices.

The Imperial President now acts as judge, jury and executioner-in-chief.
