    Republicans are the old world order of bankers, big pharma, lobbyists, old money...the old guard. All they give a feck about is themselves. The standard of living in the States has plunged dramatically in 50 years.

    I'm not a Republican, I'm an independent. The GOP is thus technically NOT my party, and that will be the case as long as that RINO, Karl Rove, is the one who is calling all the shots. Regardless, I am confident that both the GOP and the American people will wise-up by 2014 when our economy finally goes to hell due to overspending by our government.

    Karl Rove a RINO? lol You're making a funny, right?. He wrote the book on dirty tricks (only being upstaged by the Fox manager, Roger Ailes). His losing tens of millions of dollars for contributors to his super pak that only garnered him 2% success and hysterically predicting gigantic wins for republicans has put him at the bottom of the heap for credibility among his fellow RWNJs'

    We need more Constitutionalists in Congress! More people that actually read on what the Founders had to say about issues! We need people who will keep their oath to support and defend the Constitution! We need citizen-legislators who are more interested in doing their job than lining their pockets and gaining power! We need more [r]epublicanism, not [R]epublicans! We need less Decepticons AND Kleptocrats in Mordor on the Potomac! Just keep one of each as the example of what not to be... Maybe keep them in a cage on the Mall.

    If there were fewer Republicans in Congress then we would have a Dictatorship and I for one do not want to go through what WWII Germany did with Hitler. I want to keep America a Republic the home of the free and the brave. Not slaves working for the government waiting till the government handed out food, clothes, and tell me where I can live, where I can work, and where I can go.

  • askmike Patrick... 2013/02/18 21:12:31
    askmike
    OK. I bite. Post documents showing that the current NLRB has restricted companies from opening shops, and then post documents from 7 years ago that prove the current NLRB is more restrictive. You know the drill by now. Long form, with letterheads, with signatures, and with embossed notary seal. And please keep in the what the initials NLRB represent: National Labor Relations Board. Get on it. I know you will refuse to post any proofs and that will mean you admit you lied and that you are an empty bag of hot air.

    Um, how about the NLRB suing Boeing to keep them from opening up a plant in South Carolina because it is a right to work state? It was only dismissed after they extorted a new contract for a machinist union out of Boeing. Yeah, suck it. I don't lie (the truth is too much fun), I do my research and-here is the most irritating part to you LIBTARDS-I am right. You can't break my argument so you resort to name calling. Have nice pathetic life, little boy.

    I am still waiting for the proof that the NLRB has all of a sudden restricted companies from opening shops. Boeing, in 2012, violated federal employment law. Boeing admitted having done so in retaliation for the union vote in Washington State. So in light of your refusal to post any proofs I accept your apology that your lied.

    Not following our Constituion is against the law here is just a small part of what he has done against our law which makes him a dictatorship because no in Congress has the backbone to stand up do something as simple as request his records be opened for review.
    10 constitutional violations since President Obama took office.
    1. The individual mandate
    No list of President Obama’s constitutional violations would be complete without including the requirement that every American purchase health insurance, on penalty of civil fine. The individual mandate is unprecedented and exceeds Congress’s power to regulate interstate commerce. If it is allowed to stand, Congress will be able to impose any kind of economic mandate as part of any kind of national regulatory scheme. Fortunately, the Supreme Court has a chance to strike this down during its current term.
    2. Medicaid coercion
    The Court will also be taking up Obamacare’s massive intrusion on federal-state relations in the form of a coercive Medicaid expansion. The law compels states to drastically increase their Medicaid expenditures and reorganize their health care bureaucracies, on penalty of losing all (not just additional) Medicaid funds. No state contemplated such a program when it signed onto Medicaid — Arizona was the last to join...

The individual mandate is unprecedented and exceeds Congress’s power to regulate interstate commerce. If it is allowed to stand, Congress will be able to impose any kind of economic mandate as part of any kind of national regulatory scheme. Fortunately, the Supreme Court has a chance to strike this down during its current term.
    2. Medicaid coercion
    The Court will also be taking up Obamacare’s massive intrusion on federal-state relations in the form of a coercive Medicaid expansion. The law compels states to drastically increase their Medicaid expenditures and reorganize their health care bureaucracies, on penalty of losing all (not just additional) Medicaid funds. No state contemplated such a program when it signed onto Medicaid — Arizona was the last to join, in 1982 — and now no state can afford to withdraw. Indeed, even if some withdrawal mechanism existed, withdrawn states’ taxpayers would still be funding complying states’ Medicaid programs. As the Supreme Court held in South Dakota v. Dole, there comes a point when “the financial inducement offered by Congress might be so coercive as to pass the point at which pressure turns into compulsion.”
    3. The Independent Payment Advisory Board (a.k.a. “The Death Panel”)
    IPAB is the group of 15 presidential appointees who, beginning in 2014, are tasked with reducing Medicare spending. Any decisions IPAB makes automatically become law that can only be overridden by a three-fifths majority vote in the Senate. Unlike other federal agencies, IPAB is subject to no external review — no public notification in advance of proposed rules or opportunity for comment, no administrative guidelines and no judicial review. Medicare comprises about 13 percent of the federal budget, so that’s an awesome amount of power for Congress to delegate to unelected executive-branch bureaucrats. Indeed, it’s so basic a violation of traditional separation of powers that there’s no historical analog. The Goldwater Institute has filed a strong lawsuit challenging this (yet another) unprecedented aspect of Obamacare, which will continue wending its way through the lower courts regardless of how the Supreme Court rules on the individual mandate and Medicaid-coercion issues.
    4. The Chrysler bailout
    Building on the Bush administration’s illegal use of TARP funds to bail out the auto industry, the Obama administration bullied Chrysler’s secured creditors — who were entitled to “absolute priority” — into accepting 30 cents on the dollar, while junior creditors such as labor unions received much more. This subversion of creditor rights violates not just bankruptcy law but also the Constitution’s Takings and Due Process Clauses. This blatant crony capitalism — government-directed industrial policy to help political insiders — discourages investors and generally undermines confidence in American rule of law.
    5. Dodd-Frank
    Intended to remedy weaknesses in the U.S. financial system — ensuring transparency and accountability — the Dodd-Frank financial “reform” empowered unlimited, unreviewable and often secret bureaucratic discretion. The administrative bodies the legislation created face no constraints on the exercise of arbitrary authority. For example, the Treasury Department now has broad and essentially unchecked power to seize banks and other financial entities that it determines are unsound but “too big to fail.” The new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and Financial Stability Oversight Council, meanwhile, craft, execute and interpret their own law. Due process and separation of powers issues abound.
    6. The deep-water drilling ban
    Following the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, the Interior Department issued a blanket six-month moratorium on new oil and gas drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. A federal judge struck down that moratorium as arbitrary and capricious, but the government issued a new order to replace the one that was struck down. That order was subsequently withdrawn, but the judge was so shocked by the administration’s conduct that he found the government in civil contempt of court.
    7. Political-speech disclosure for federal contractors
    In April of this year, President Obama released a draft executive order (still pending) that would require businesses with federal contracts to disclose independent expenditures on federal elections (political speech independent of candidates and parties). This order is intended to undermine the Supreme Court’s Citizen United decision — allowing independent expenditures by corporations, unions and other associations — by discouraging federal contractors and their executives from engaging in political speech. Citizens United held that such expenditures do not enable the kind of quid pro quo corruption that campaign finance laws are allowed to regulate, so this draft executive order shows contempt for the First Amendment by chilling protected speech.
    8. Taxing political contributions
    Earlier this year, the IRS tried to muzzle political speech by asserting that donations to certain nonprofit advocacy groups (so-called 501(c)(4) organizations) would be subject to the gift tax. Historically, the IRS has not applied the gift tax in this way — donations to advocacy groups are not likely to be used to circumvent the estate tax — and when the IRS previously tried to tax political donations, it was rebuffed by the courts on the grounds that such transfers are not gifts (i.e., the donor is getting something in return). The IRS has since backed down, but the suspicion remains that it was trying to chill the political speech of those opposed to President Obama’s policies, in violation of the First Amendment.
    9. Graphic tobacco warnings
    Late last year, the FDA issued regulations requiring cigarette manufacturers to display graphic warnings on all packs of cigarettes that must cover at least 50% of the packaging and graphically portray tobacco-related illnesses. These warnings violate the First Amendment because the government is compelling the cigarette manufacturers to discourage their customers from buying their lawful products. Last month, a federal judge blocked the new regulation, which was due to go into effect in January, but the administration is appealing.
    10. Health care waivers
    The Department of Health and Human Services has granted nearly 2,000 waivers to employers seeking relief from Obamacare’s onerous regulations. Nearly 20 percent of these waivers went to gourmet restaurants and other businesses in Nancy Pelosi’s San Francisco district. Nevada, home to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, got a blanket waiver, while Republican-controlled states like Indiana and Louisiana were denied. Even beyond the unseemly political favoritism, such arbitrary dispensations violate a host of constitutional and administrative law provisions ranging from equal protection to the “intelligible principle” required for congressional delegation of authority to cabinet agencies. Unlike 17th-century English monarchs, American presidents were not granted dispensing powers: As we’ve seen, the power to suspend a legal requirement can and will be used to arbitrarily favor the politically connected. Moreover, most of these waivers were never authorized by Congress in the first place!

    So much false abuse has been hurled at this President that there's a danger of losingt sight or the troubling truth for you republicans. The President is NOT a stealth Marxist or a concealed Muslim. He's not plottingt to impose Sharia law or death panels. Until the loud, fear mongering minority of the majority gets that thru their heads, you will never get anywhere near to the power you so passionately seek.

    First of all, it's not "Republican" messes, it's from both parties. I always have a problem with reckless spending, GWB was no fiscal conservative & Obama has continued the drunken sailor spending and it needs to stop.

    If you or me were spending more than we make, we would have problems. We would cut our spending in order to maintain our household. Those budget cuts may not make us happy, but it's a necessity. No going out to eat, no movies, maybe you live on Ramen noodles & macaroni for a while. This country is focused on Republican versus Democrat when it should be saving this country from digging its way to China. Pun intended.

    Most families I see in the Food Pantry I created some 30 years ago during one of Reagan's recessions, believe it or not, are not going to movies or restaurants. They're too busy trying to hang unto the roofs over their heads, feeding their kids and praying that they don't have a catastrophic illness or disease.

    You're absolutely right. Too many politicos are focused on Party not country, but if you notice that lack of concern for Main Street is mostly coming from the Right side of the aisle.
