President wants More Power

Found the topic for this post from an article on Yahoo!

The Department of Commerce will celebrate its 109th anniversary this year, having been created in 1903. And if President Obama gets his way , the agency won't make it much past 110. Announcing last week that he is seeking authority to streamline the executive branch, President Obama said he needs the same kind of "authority that every business owner has to make sure that his or her company keeps pace with the times. And let me be clear: I will only use this authority for reforms that result in more efficiency, better service, and a leaner government." Never mind what the Constitution says. 

As an example, the president wants to shut down the Department of Commerce, taking its core functions and giving them to a new agency that will also fold in the tasks of the Small Business Administration, the U.S. Trade Representative, the Overseas Private Investment Corporation, the Trade and Development Agency and the Export-Import Bank.

The problem is that Obama is not shrinking government, he is consolidating power. We drastically need a much smaller government and for that government wort work within the enumerated powers outlined in the Constitution rather than what a group of elite politicans think this country should look like.

This is the same President who recently said that he will go around Congress and did so when he unconstitutionally declared Congress in recess then made four political appointments.

The President said of his grab for additional powers: "This is a big idea."
Big Idea? Nope. Big departure from the constitution and big step for the administration to control more power? Yes, absolutely.

"We live in a 21st century economy, but we've still got a government organized for the 20th century," President Obama said this morning. "Our economy has fundamentally changed - as has the world - but the government has not. The needs of our citizens have fundamentally changed but their government has not. Instead, it has often grown more complex."

Economy fundamentally changed? Yes as a matter of fact. From production and manufacturing to services and an entitlement society.

The American people are going to be seeing alot more of this from President Obama as he recognizing his has to make a big departure, a radical azimuth change from the past years in order to get elected again. But all the clues are there. The way he thinks he can make presidential declarations and executive orders to take this country towards an European look alike My God, this is the president that gave us,..what?,....30+ Czars?? The greatest expansion of government in history. The first credit downgrade in history,.....and lets not forget about the biggest federal debt in history!
