We Need To Take Some Power Away From Obama

Obama has entirely too much power and not enough sense.

We need to take away the power of 'executive orders'(when he wants to override congress), the power for him to 'appoint' whoever he wants to cabinet posts (his czars?), the power to override a court ruling (the Black Panthers?), the power to sue a state for following the federal law (Arizona), the power for him push through bills he knows the people do not want (health care, financial reform, cash for clunkers, bailouts, etc).

Maybe if he read the 2nd paragraph of the Declaration of Independence he and congress would understand a little better:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

Our forefathers were very wise men. They could forsee the egos of man when he came into power, that's why they included this particular section in the Declaration of Independence.

Obama needs to understand that he only has the right to 'govern' as long as we allow him to--and that right is limited by the voice of The People.
