Our presto-chango president

The other day, President Obama declared he was going to delay the business-mandate portion of ObamaCare to 2015.

ObamaCare is a law. He can't just change a law without congressional approval. But he will, because he is never challenged when he violates the Constitution.

And how many times has he? Five or six times, and how many others via executive order, regulatory changes, etc.? I thought one was the limit, and then removal from office was the consequence.

When a president declares he's changing a law, that's something a dictator does.

There was a Lincoln quote in Randy Bish's July 4 editorial cartoon that says it all: “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”

Wake up, America! Maybe there is still time?
