Throughout the campaign we heard from all factions of the Republican Party how unlawful it would be for Obama to sign an executive order altering the immigration laws of the United States. The Republican candidates, and those campaigning, all emphasized how they would be able to prohibit this illegal action by not allowing funding for amnesty. The argument that was made to the American public was if you gave the Republicans a majority in the Senate and increased the majority in the House, then the Republicans could stop the illegal action Obama had promised. The American public did but they did not.
Obama has now signed a “clean funding bill for Homeland Security” that was facilitated and supported by the Republican leadership and the Centrist Republicans. Not only did these people not uphold their promises to the American public, they gave another piece of their power to the executive branch thus centralizing even more power in one of the “co-equal” branches. Yes, the Republican leadership and Centrist Republicans lied to us and violated their oath of office to protect and preserve the constitution.
These lies by the Republicans do not in any way justify the constant lies and demolition of the constitution by Obama, but it sure makes their arguments and promises much more suspect. Please, will somebody with the characteristics of a Statesman like Ronald Reagan please step forward; America needs you.
