    No One heard the Beckel delusion. Christians should submit to Obama's authority - mindless ignorance.

    "That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,"

    Well Obama won the election so we honor the election. However, Obama regularly and with personal braggadocio claims his leading requires exceeding the authority. of our office, he holds. Executive orders or purposeful abuse of an EPA which has no Constitutional authority to fashion law to purposefully shirk his duty to cut the corn ethanol mandates if it causes market or supply disruptions.

    "It is important, likewise, that the habits of thinking in a free country should inspire caution in those entrusted with its administration, to confine themselves within their respective constitutional spheres, avoiding in the exercise of the powers of one department to encroach upon another. The spirit of encroachment tends to consolidate the powers of all the departments in one, and thus to create, whatever the form of government, a real despotism. A just estimate of that love of power, and proneness to abuse it, which predominates in the human heart, is sufficient to satisfy us of the truth of this position. The necessity of reciprocal checks in the exercise of political power, by dividing and distributing it into different depositaries, and constituting each the guardian of the public weal against invasions by the others, has been evinced by experiments ancient and modern; some of them in our country and under our own eyes. To preserve them must be as necessary as to institute them. If, in the opinion of the people, the distribution or modification of the constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates. But let there be no change by usurpation; for though this, in one instance, may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed. The precedent must always greatly overbalance in permanent evil any partial or transient benefit, which the use can at any time yield."

    This is America where our rights are Gifted by God and the government exists to secure those rights and is directly accountable to us.

    Obama serves us or if he were respectful of God, he would serve us. To do so requires respecting our system of government and persuading us with logic not primitive emotions. Yet even to this day a majority do not want Obamacare or believe in Global Warming and fewer still believe in all this 'alternative energy corruption. We are off on homosexual marriage and gun control rather than record high unemployment and falling living standards.

    Hey Bob! Have some respect for fellow Americans and take the time to have an informed opinion. Some one your age should not still be the pull string talking point monkey.

    Americans are responsible for America. Obama's job is to respect us by controlling his personal hubris so as to confine himself to the Constitutional powers he has been temporarily vested with.

    An Awakening or more properly an American Reformation resulted in our new understandings. Going back to Luther and the peasant revolts is something an informed Americans does not do.
