In Your Opinion: Obama violating the Constitution

If it was discovered that the hordes of illegals pouring over our southern border were all determined to vote for and emulate tea party Republicans, the Obama regime would guard that border as viciously as the Nazis did on the beaches of Normandy.

If one dares to question the president’s apparent non-existent border security programs you are labeled either anti-immigrant or racist. That term racist is applied across the board to anyone not in lockstep with Obama’s handling, or in most cases not handling, any number of crises, scandals and general mismanagement that seem to pop up on almost-daily schedule.

Sen. Joe McCarthy labeled everybody and their brother a “Communist” to the point of absurdity, and now “racist” has lost all of its former sting and sharp connotation, harking us back to the days when “Tailgunner Joe” became a caricature of himself .

To anyone who believes in an America based on the letter of the law and an adherence to the Constitution, the thought of 2½ more years of Obama at the helm is enough to make one’s stomach churn. To specifically detail all the misdeeds perpetuated by the current administration would go stupendously beyond the allotted wordage.
