The "R" word potential by "we the people" has been spoken in public congressional testimony as a real possibility based on Obama's lawlessness...the witness is saying, "if congress can't rein Obama, the American public may well take the action".

I think this is the first public pronouncement in open testimony before Congress of potential over-throw of the US government by public revolution............at least that I have heard.

During a congressional committee hearing about the constitutional limits imposed on the presidency and the implications of President Barack Obama’s disregard for implementing the Affordable Care Act as written, one expert testified that the consequences of the president’s behavior were potentially grave. He said that the precedent set by Obama could eventually lead to an armed revolt against the federal government.

On Tuesday, Michael Cannon, Cato Institute’s Director of Health Policy Studies, testified before a congressional committee about the dangers of the president’s legal behavior.

“There is one last thing to which the people can resort if the government does not respect the restrains that the constitution places on the government,” Cannon said. “Abraham Lincoln talked about our right to alter our government or our revolutionary right to overthrow it.”

“That is certainly something that no one wants to contemplate,” he continued. “If the people come to believe that the government is no longer constrained by the laws then they will conclude that neither are they.”

“That is a very dangerous sort of thing for the president to do, to wantonly ignore the laws,” Cannon concluded, “to try to impose obligation upon people that the legislature did not approve.”

  • I agree. It was very bold of him.  My goodness!!

  • Why has the US Congress ignored Obama's violations?

  • Teflon O-boohoo and O Residodoo hails to himself that no matter what we throw at him will never stick, with the constant abuse of spending monies which are not his to bribe the branches of government, make this fraud usurper America,s most wanted criminal, and he has accepted by his own doing that he is above the law and he will continue to write his own laws being that know one has big ones to stop him.Maybe we can go to the Injustice Department, run by his best friend and spell out the 27 laws he has broken to have Eric holder arrest him; O wait he to is a criminal that know one dare bring him up on charges for running weapons to his friends on the other side of the border. Oh i,m sorry why have a border, the fraud usurper has given the country of Mexico amnesty..If the Supreme court of the land has also been bought and paid for,why bother pursuing the most wanted criminal of what once was the greatest country in the world.

    Quietly behind closed doors i hear words like coup and revolution, but our constitutional right to bear arms is being abolished by a relentless wanna be dictator who has waged his own coup on the American people and know one new that it happened, 200 Generals have been purged and i don,t remember any congressional directive that jointly agreed to let it happen, and last but not least those involved in the coup, have over run our White House, with members of the muslime brotherhood,communist and Islamic jihadist, but i don,t recall reading or hearing on the news, the lawful procedure for appointments to fill 80% of our judicial system, or do we still have such a system of laws and do process. WOW!.

  • But how long will it take them to act on this?? 

    I have a feeling that it went in 1 ear & out the other !!!!

    But we need to do something & fast, and if there's any suggestions...I'm game !!!!

  • Same here, with the testimony generation.  Trey Gowdy was listening intently...needs to be at least contacted and advised that a good majority of the American people believe this testimony and want something done...

  • Isn't it amazing, someone comes in and tells them what could happen, and these clowns he is talking to don't have a damn clue.  They took an oath of office that they themselves have not upheld, and yet have the guts to pin everything on Obama.

    They knew Obama was violating the constitution and not one of them took it upon himself to put a halt to it.  They also knew thatn the oath of office that Obama took does not cover the POTUS violation of knowingly violating the rules of election and qualification.  Ignorance is no excuse, due to his exposure to the law while in college.  He knowingly accepted mthe nomination, knowing that he did not meet the standards set to hold the office of President of The United States of America.

    •   You are correct Top..

       We just dont know how many in DC are riding on his communist Train .Now being P.C.some call it Progressive, but being a  real Duck ,its known as communism

  • Yes.....Yes..........Yes............If anyone gets a video of the Megan Kelly show tonight, she had this whole thing on her show to include Chairman Goodlatte.........Twana is correct, we need to get this very important truth as wide as possible.........

  • There was additional testimony by Jonathan Turley, a Georgetown professor/lawyer who spoke of the direction of Obama as being toward an "uber-President" and cited it as "grave" and dangerous.  This is a left-wing liberal finally publicly calling Obama what he is......a "grave danger" to our constitution and the United States of America. 

    The Chair of the Committee, Goodlatte spoke of the definition of tyranny.  When executive, legislative, and judicial power is consolidated into one branch it is the definition of tyranny and implied it's Obama's path........

    We've spoken of the cauldron bubbling, the lid quivering.......and my sense is that people in Washington are starting to get the message of what's really happening out here in the hinter-land. 

    I don't know if the "r" word is what Obama wants, but he sure is moving the potential along and it's gaining speed.  God knows I ache to get it on............

"Survival is all about being able to find food, shelter, and how to fight back.Remember Sun ZU said an Army moves on it's stomach. Which means in order to fight when you get there you have to  be able too.And a starving Army wont put up much of a fight.
