♪♪Ya Say Ya Want A Revoluuuushuuuunnnn.....♪♪

















A very good and otherwise very sensible friend of mine, pissed off over ObAmnesty, just invoked the Declaration of Independence as justification for overthrowing Obama.

Sigh. Really, my dear friends.

We need some history here.

Let’s look at the list of George III's abuses that they cited in 1776 and see how many of them Obama has committed, shall we?....

Y?
He has refused his assent to laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
Yes, but so what? Unlike George III, we GAVE him veto powers by electing him President, like or not.
Y?
He has forbidden his governors to pass laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
Some laws–particularly Arizona’s anti-immigration acts–actually meet this standard. (Whether it is good or bad it has been suspended is another question.)
N
He has refused to pass other laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of representation in the legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
Nope.
N
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
Nope. DC is a place usual, comfortable, and near the depository of its public records. Our representatives are fatigued, yes, however, but not his doing.
N
He has dissolved representative houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
Not yet.
N
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the legislative powers, incapable of annihilation, have returned to the people at large for their exercise; the state remaining in the meantime exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
Nope.
N
He has endeavored to prevent the population of these states; for that purpose obstructing the laws for naturalization of foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migration hither, and raising the conditions of new appropriations of lands.
Quite the opposite. Congress has done precisely this. On the other hand, per the Constitution, that’s Congress’s job.
N
He has obstructed the administration of justice, by refusing his assent to laws for establishing judiciary powers.
Nope. Nominating useless leftist loser judges is NOT the same as obstruction as Georgie 3 liked to do.
N
He has made judges dependent on his will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
Nope. US Constitution prevents this.
Y
He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.
Okay, got him on that one.
N
He has kept among us, in times of peace, standing armies without the consent of our legislature.
Nope. He’s actively tried to REDUCE the military and standing armies, and so far Congress has gone along with the gag.
N
He has affected to render the military independent of and superior to civil power.
Nope. Quite the opposite.
Y?
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his assent to their acts of pretended legislation:
Well, this is arguably yes, if you believe that citing the United Nations’s various “Conventions” in court documents and so on counts.
N
For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
Nope. They stay on base or in their own homes.
N
For protecting them, by mock trial, from punishment for any murders which they should commit on the inhabitants of these states:
Nope. Although some might argue Ferguson applies. (I don’t so argue!)
N
For cutting off our trade with all parts of the world:
Hardly. Foreign trade is as lucrative as ever.
Y?
For imposing taxes on us without our consent:
Arguably yes, particularly through the ACA.
N
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of trial by jury:
Nope, except for those schmoes at Gitmo, and they aren’t Americans so they don’t count....
N
For transporting us beyond seas to be tried for pretended offenses:
Ditto above.
N
For abolishing the free system of English laws in a neighboring province, establishing therein an arbitrary government, and enlarging its boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule in these colonies:
Um, get back to me on this one if/when Obama conquers Canada.
N
For taking away our charters, abolishing our most valuable laws, and altering fundamentally the forms of our governments:
Giving 4 million poor Mexicans work cards may–MAY–qualify.
N
For suspending our own legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
Nope. Believe me if he could suspend the next Congress, he would.
N
He has abdicated government here, by declaring us out of his protection and waging war against us.
Um, no.
N
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burned our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
Nope.
N
He is at this time transporting large armies of foreign mercenaries to complete the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy of the head of a civilized nation.
Nobody believes this but overheated Michigan Militia types.
N
He has constrained our fellow citizens taken captive on the high seas to bear arms against their country, to become the executioners of their friends and brethren, or to fall themselves by their hands.
Nope.
N
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian savages, whose known rule of warfare, is undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.
The closest we could come if his peeps are behind the agitation at Ferguson, which I don’t believe for a nanosecond.


28 charges of which Obama has arguably committed two or VERY arguably committed four more.

In other words, get a grip peeps. Obama’s acts do not reach the point of calling for revolution!

Two more years.

We can wait two more years.

(((shaking head)))

  1. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Throw in the conspiracy theorists who talk about the BRAC RIFs and FEMA Camps, edumacate 'em on the inception of both, and watch the aneurisms start a-popping.
