Remember what caused the American Revolution?
It was the systematic violation of liberty. The Declaration of Independence contains a long list of accusations against tyrannical and oppressive acts by King George and his government against the colonies. Here they are with my comments in red:
He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good. [Consider how the president has refused to enforce laws enacted by Congress if he happens to disagree with them, e.g., DOMA. Also, how he makes up laws whenever he chooses, e.g., his continuous changes to Obamacare, a LAW PASSED BY CONGRESS. He lacks authority to do either of these things! The will of the people means nothing to him, just as it meant nothing to King George III.]
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. [Obama has made it a practice to sue states that pass laws with which he disagrees. He sued Texas and North Carolina over voter ID laws. In 2012 he sued Arizona to try to prevent implementation of a state law to defund Planned Parenthood. In another egregious act of cronyism Obama sued Arizona and South Dakota to overturn their constitutional protection of secret ballots for union employees. Poor Arizona also got it for their immigration law. These truly are acts of tyranny against the states!]
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.
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. [IRS harassment of conservative groups - nuff said!]
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
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 mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands. [Immigration laws, the Dream Act, provisions that favor illegals over citizens and legal immigrants. See here.]
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance. [IRS, EPA, HHS, DHS, FDA, FCC, DOE, FEMA, NLRB, etc. are all being used to persecute those who do not bow to the liberal gods.]
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
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:
For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent: [ACA with birth control mandate]
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury: [NDAA allows indefinite detention of U.S. citizens suspected of terrorism. Not only are they denied right to a speedy trial, but the right of habeas corpus. No charge, no trial, no rights! Unconstitutional on its face! See here.]
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring 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 into these Colonies:
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments: [Consider the numerous and continuing assaults on our Constitution including freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of the press (Have you read about the plan - recently defeated - to put FCC "monitors" in newsrooms around the country?), freedom to bear arms, etc. There have been more assaults on the Constitution under this president than ever before and they continue. He should be impeached!]
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever. [Note Obama's use of executive orders to legislate and his unauthorized alteration of laws duly enacted by Congress. He essentially has made himself both the executive and legislative branches, but, as he quipped to the press during his Monticello visit with French president Hollande, "That's the good thing about being president; I can do whatever I want." He seems to believe it!]He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people. [He has killed jobs, prevented energy development, and destroyed the health care of millions!]
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
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.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.IRS corruption is just the tip of the iceberg with this lawless tyrant in the White House. Pray for his conversion, but pray even harder for grassroots America. Unless the people rebel against this type of abuse and hold the feet of our spineless politicians to the fire, we are finished as a free nation!
