Obama's Second Act of Dictatorship

TBSchemer Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2012
Remember how I pointed out that the contraception mandate issued by Obama through his Secretary of Health and Human Services was an act of dictatorship that sets a precedent for further acts of dictatorship, and you all thought this was ridiculous?

Well, here's dictatorial decree number two: [link]

Obama has imposed a new tax without any Congressional input. This tax will apply to every health insurance company, and be passed on to every consumer through health insurance premiums. Obama can order the Health Secretary to increase this tax at any time, or change how it is implemented, without any Congressional input. This is taxation without representation.

This is all allowed through the "rulemaking" power given to the Secretary of Health Human Services by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. This is the same power that allowed the contraception mandate, and it is nothing short of dictatorial.

No matter who you voted for, or what your political philosophy is, if you think dictatorship is wrong, this should scare you. It's a little late to change your vote, but if you value your liberty, you should be speaking out against the Obama administrations lust for power, and their new dictatorial tools.

You know, I swear you republicans have been accusing Obama of being a dictator so often that you guys have forgotten what actually constitutes a dictatorship. One little tax and suddenly you think he's trying to take over the world or something.

Dictatorship isn't about what the leader imposes. It's about how the leader imposes it.

Obama decided we needed a tax on insurance companies. Then he decreed it. And now it's law. He's legislating by decree. That's called dictatorship.

And the "how" makes a whole lot of absolutely terrifying "whats" very possible and very real.

Did he do anything that was actually against the law? If so, I suggest you take your concerns up with the court system rather then an internet forum. Otherwise you're being unnecessarily alarmist.

What's wrong with people like you is that no amount of truth will ever be enough to get you to think "oh hey, I might in fact be at least the tiniest bit wrong"

it's not the party, its the mentality, it just so happens that the republican party has devolved into this cesspool of people so infatuated with being told they're right facts don't work on them.

So sir, you go off on your tangent about how Obama is apparently the devil and what have you, for whatever reasons, we all know for a fact that the whole reason your "party" is so butthurt about Obama winning isn't because you think he's socialist, it isn't because you think he's a muslim, or dictator, or atheist, or anything that contradicts the LAST thing you said he was (how can he be a muslim and an atheist? what? :lol:) it's because he's black.

let me rephrase that for you, because no it's not even that, I'll be the first to say it's not even racism that's got your panties in a bunde. It's because he's the embodiment your worst nightmare come true, a normal man who is having success by working hard.

So I don't really have an argument for you, just GET OVER IT.

You racist fuck. Right, so just because I'm white, every single criticism I have MUST derive from racism. You racist sack of shit. You aren't worth the air you breathe.

He didn't say it was because you were white. He said it was because you were a Republican. Remember, just because all repulican's are white, doesn't mean all white's are republican.

I'm not even a Republican. That's called prejudice.

I love how you blocked me so I couldn't reply. just FYI, it makes you look like you don't know what you're talking about, which in this case is very true. Now as I was typing before I figured out you blocked me (yes, there is a Socially Awkward penguine plz, and I made it :))

--------
case in point (especially since you blocked me wow), facts do not phase your idiocy (and you run from them obviously).

If you'd actually read what I said nowhere did I say you where racist, I mentioned people of your party might be but that wasn't the conclusion I came to. the conclusion I came to was that "you're mad (or the majority of you guys are mad) that a regular guy is gaining success through hard work, your worst nightmare" has nothing to do with racism. Either that or it's a reading comprehension issue. I think the latter of the two problems you might have had trying to wrap your head around what I wrote I'm pretty certain on.

and how pray tell did you get from that that I was racist of all things deary? you must be off your medication.

but needless to say keep proving my point, I'm listening :)

The fact that you even feel the need to bring up race or anything else as a potential ulterior motive for my posts or the actions of the Republican Party shows you're not listening and are making racist assumptions. It also shows you're so buried in the media spin that no amount of factual information or data about the failures of socialism could get through to you.

You're living in the left-wing spin-world where France and Norway are the most successful nations in the world, rich people don't pay any taxes, and every dollar the federal government spends is wealth created for the country. There's no way to puncture that bubble until you're willing to admit the media sources you've been following have been lying their asses off to get Obama every bit of power he craves.
