The term, Presidential Fiat, has been tossed around in the press and electronic media for the last several years comparing President Obama to a dictator or one that rules through totalitarianism.
Obama’s average of new regulations exceeds over 80,000 pages per year since he has been in office. As of September 15, 2012, he has signed 138 executive orders mostly due to the fact that Congress would not pass what he was requesting. This president seeks complete control over individual freedoms to become a dominate force in all business operations.
The Environmental Protection Agency has maintained a more than adequate employment force of around 17,000, having a budget inside of $15 billion per year. With the new Green House Gas Regulations, an additional 230,000 bureaucrats could be added to the ever expanding agency costing taxpayers in excess of an additional $21 billion.
The Democrats have gone on record stating this new regulation will be a job creator. Has one journalist ever asked if the jobs created would be in the private or public sector? Between Obamacare and all the new EPA regulations, I am uncertain how it becomes easier for a business to survive let alone create new hires. Maybe that is the socialists’ plan. After all, Obama did say that he wants to do to every American Company what he did to General Motors.
Obama has made a statement in the last year that made clear to the citizens: if I can’t get a bill through the Congress that I see necessary, there are other ways to get the job done. Through Presidential Fiat, i.e., executive order, Obama is doing just what he declared.
In 2011, the Republicans in the House of Representatives rejected a bill that would allow the current administration to take over all national communication systems. Recently, Obama has issued an executive order that would allow the government to shut down all wire lines, wireless, satellite and cable broadcasts. This will give Obama complete control over all communication via executive order bypassing Congress.
On March 16th of 2012 an executive order was signed for the act of Peacetime Martial Law. This can be found at WhiteHouse.Gov underneath National Defense Resources Preparedness. There have been many reports of millions of ammunition rounds being purchased from the government and re-education camps being set up. Why on earth would our government make such a large purchase of ammunition? Could this be a conspiracy? Is Obama planning something or does he know something that we are not being told?
Every citizen in the United States needs to be aware of all the rules, regulations and executive orders that are being placed on them. Not in a literal way. They just need to know that our government is attempting to take control of every aspect of our life.
The CAFÉ [Corporate Average Fuel Efficiency] standards in the automobile industry making cars lighter and less safe is a good example of increased manufacturing cost and vehicles that are not as safe. Just about every product in your home has regulations of some type. I am sure most are aware of the new toilets, light bulbs and refrigerator requirements and changes. When will all this madness stop?
If this President has complete control for another four years, what happens is beyond the realm of expectation. Another four years for Obama would be opening a flood gate of executive orders and regulations amongst massive taxation to support his radical programs. There is word that he wants to control all water on your property and the fire that you want to burn in your fireplace. If America votes this man back in for another term, we will deserve what we receive!
