How Obama Learned to Stop Worrying About the Constitution and Love the Illegal Amnesty

President Obama’s recent executive action reportedly gives amnesty and work permits to approximately five million illegal aliens, effectively nullifying current immigration law. Obama’s executive amnesty is a reckless attack on rule of law, separation of powers, and consent of the governed: the fundamentals of a free society.

Don’t take my word for it. President Obama himself was against the imperial amnesty before he was in favor of it, and he actually stated that it would be illegal for him to make such a decree.

For the case against Obama’s illegal amnesty, one need only look to Obama’s own speeches. President Obama has publicly said, on at least 25 occasions, that he does not have the constitutional authority to “go it alone” on amnesty. “That’s not how our democracy works,” he said to a mostly Latino audience. Back in 2010, Obama even made the case that amnesty would encourage illegal…

Americans Were Wise to Obamacare Long Before Gruber’s ‘Stupid’ Comments

Economist Jonathan Gruber listens during a conference of the Workers Compensation Research Institute in Boston

By now you have probably heard about the videos of Jonathan Gruber, one of chief the architects behind Obamacare, in which he bragged that they were intentionally untruthful to the American public about the nature of the law. He repeatedly attributed this strategy to “the stupidity of the American voter.”

But who exactly could Gruber be talking about? Ever since polling began on the topic, Americans have overwhelmingly opposed the law. Thanks to new media, the internet, and talk radio, Americans had a pretty good idea of how horrible this law was going to be, despite the Democrats’ efforts to sell it as the best thing since Stalin’s five-year plans.

The only “stupid” ones Gruber could be talking about are the low-information-Obama-drone voters who would believe whatever he and the President said. About 35 to 40 percent of Americans have consistently supported the law, while a majority of Americans oppose the law.

Election Results Put a Balanced Budget Amendment, Congressional Term Limits Within Reach

Red Millennial

The year 2014 will go into the history books as a wave election for Republicans. They took control of both houses of Congress, not to mention the election of several Republican governors (including in dark blue states like Illinois, Massachusetts, and Maryland). The United States now has 31 Republican governors.

2014_PartyComp_11-6-14The most important and impressive victories, however, were in the state legislatures. Of the 99 legislative chambers in the United States, Republicans flipped control in 10 chambers for a total of 69 chambers. That means that Republicans have majorities of both houses in 30 states and 70 percent of the legislative bodies. Additionally, Nebraska has a non-partisan unicameral legislature that typically leans Republican. Those numbers are historic in the modern era, but consider that there are also eight states where the legislature is split with Republicans controlling one of the two legislative bodies. Only 11 states have Democratic majorities…
