Declaration of Independence

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. - That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

Abuse of Power

                Members of Congress are finally fed up with t Barack Obama’s routine abuse executive power.  The House of Representatives passed a bill allowing congressional lawsuits against Mr. Obama for failing to enforce federal laws.  The bill may not get past the Democrat-controlled Senate and will most likely be vetoed by Mr. Obama, but at least the House took some action!

                  Representative Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) sponsored the ENFORCE the Law Act and gave a rousing speech to explain why.  You can watch the action here.  

                “How does going from being a senator to a president rewrite the Constitution? … We are not a country where the ends justify the means no matter how good your motivations may be.”
                Mr. Gowdy explained that “process matters.”  “If a president does not faithfully execute the law, Mr. Speaker, what are our remedies?”  “Just sit and wait on another election?”

                I like Mr. Gowdy.  He seems to be a real Patriot who is trying to do his job in Congress and not just enrich himself.  He also sounds as though he knows the Constitution and how to defend it.  I would like to see him selected as the next Speaker of the House because I believe he would stand up to our lawless leader.
