King of America! A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet *************
As distasteful as it may be, I think we need to look at what we can expect if, heaven help us, Obama is reelected.
First we must understand that Obama has had his fill of the Congress of the United States. After all, the Congress is only the voice of the people of this country. So, what do THEY know, right? Nah. Congress is just another speed bump -- like the Constitution.
So, in my opinion, America should brace itself for a king-like President who will, in actuality, rule America by decree. Obama will simply forget Congress, except as a whipping boy, and he will issue Presidential Executive Order after Presidential Executive Order and will, for all intents and purposes, become the "Dictator of America."
Obama can order things done by Executive Order but the Congress holds the strings to the purse and if they don't like it, they can simply cut off funding, or see that no money is earmarked to finance all those "things" Obama will order done and created.
If the election ends with Romney winning the popular vote and Obama winning the electoral vote, things will be even worse. The divide between the President and the people of America will grow wider and deeper and ... bitter. The divide between Americans will become exponentially wider and more difficult to bridge. The little civility we have left will be tossed out the window. Americans can expect civil unrest to be the order of the day. The country could (possibly) become ungovernable in fairly short order. (One has to wonder if that explains the government's purchase of all that ammunition and spreading it around among various government agencies in diverse parts of the country. Are they expecting this??)

All things Obayma need to be purged from this nation.
Ain't much we can do to avoid it at this point.
The Constitution? Why that's and "Evolving" document don't you know?
Will the Obama Riots be just riots or CWII?
That is the question.
Answer might be that they’ll be “Obama Riots” if Holder’s “people” only loot and burn their own communities; IF they expand that beyond, then it might be CWII. Just a guess. Hope not.
A courageous Congress could stop Obama in his tracks.
No: I am not joking.
Oh!! I spoke of courage and Congress in one sentence. Now I see the joke.
Anyone that has taken high school civics knows the congress could have stopped “his highness” during his current reign-—they do control the purse stings and money controls DC.
The same courageous Congrease that wont even ask for legit ID from an Indonesian squatting at 1600 Penn Ave?
Ho ho ho He he he Ha ha ha ha ......
We know they COULD HAVE, but they didn’t.
The President has failed us.
The Congress has failed us.
The Judiciary has failed us.
I hate to say it, but the 2nd. Amendment may be our court of last resort.
As much as I agree with this article’s view of dear leader’s ego, there are a few problems with it:
It ignores the fact that Obama would need some form of paramilitary force to enforce his decrees and uphold his power. Even assuming the military will work against its own countrymen, I doubt they would do it to the degree Obama required (after all, he’s really not that popular when you get down to it). And as much as I can see Obama as a dictator, I just can’t see an American version of the SS/Gestapo forming up behind him with absolute loyalty (bear in mind that the SS considered Hitler God almighty).
Obama doesn’t have the popularity needed to assume dictatorial powers without a lot of people raising a ruckus, and the above point comes into effect then. I doubt even many of his supporters would enjoy the idea of him having absolute power over their lives. If he becomes dictator, it’s not going to be the Hitler/Mussolini variety that people will tolerate at best or support at worst. He’s probably going to be somewhere along the lines of Diem or the Shah.
Those are the main two for me. I can believe dear leader has an ego the size of China and no doubt dreams of the day he can rule by executive decree, but this isn’t Europe. Americans, even those calling for more government interference in the economy, are just too wild to fall in line with a totalitarian dictator.
Frankly, I’m more convinced we’ll be seeing something along the lines of the world in Rawles’es “Patriots: A Novel of Survival in the Coming Collapse” if Obama gets re-elected and drives the economy into the ground.
