It is the duty of every American to abrogate a tyrannical federal government. I believe we’re far past the point of no return.

Just posted this on yesterday's thread but will edit it to use the WFTD. While Obama/Kerry attempt to abrogate the existence of Israel, American Jews do not generally appear to GET IT, but it seems Israelis, both right and left, DO get it and support Bibi's refusal to buckle to US demands. Even the left wing Israeli papers were excoriating Obama yesterday.

The Federal Government needs to TOTALLY abrogate the vile law known as “obamacare”, and to expunge all the bureaucracy it created from the face of the Earth!!!!

Democrats keeps talking about how they will “overturn” the Hobby Lobby decision. Apparently they don’t know the difference between overturn and abrogate, as it applies to Supreme Court rulings.

I don't see how Obamacare can withstand the Halbig ruling. The text of the law plainly states that subsidies are only available via state exchanges. And, based on contemporaneous videotaped statements made by principal Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber back in 2012, it would take a tremendous amount of word parsing for Chief Justice Roberts and his gang to assert that the law doesn't say what it says or doesn't mean what it says. Not that Roberts hasn't shown the ability and willingness to twist the wording into a pretzel in order to save this monstrosity.

His arrogating and non-abrogating are aggravating.

Politicos in DC and in the media are abrogating the Impeachment provision in the Constitution by labeling it a “stunt”.

The only way that impeachment/conviction will occur is when congressmen and senators believe that dumping Obama would do them more political good than keeping him. Constitutional imperatives never enter their minds.

Yes, but all the voices claiming that Impeachment is nothing but a “stunt” leaves us with NO non-violent way of ridding us of a corrupt, dangerous, or power mad office holder if we agree.

Obama has abrogated his oath of office with his refusal to enforce the law.

[Note: I wrote that in a manner of seconds before I looked at anyone’s responses]

Sometime the word of the day is all too easy given recent events.

Jonah on who benefits from impeachment talk. Hint: it's not us. Let's just be real here, we DO NOT HAVE a way to get rid of him, he will NOT be impeached, and banging that particular drum is just causing $ to pour into their coffers and if it became more than talk, would have their base all clamoring to vote in November elections. Do you honestly believe that there are enough balls in the Congress to impeach him?

No, but taking it off the table means that the Constitution has been amended by fiat. It opens the door to allowing him to rule without consequences.

He cannot be impeached because he is black, that is tragically unfortunate, but that is reality. HE WILL NOT BE Impeached. do you believe otherwise? Not bc no one will bring articles of impeachment, but bc it will not happen, the votes will not be there, the public sentiment IS NOT THERE. We do not have the luxury of putting idealism ahead of pragmatism. the situation is far too dire.

Nobody has amended anything.

There aren’t the votes to convict. It’s as simple as that.

Until there are enough people to agree who agree with us. Which right now there are not. It's math.

Put it another way, we'll think about impeaching a Democrat president when the Democrat Seantors beg us too. Until then we do not have the votes.

Impeachment is a political act, that's why it's left to the poltiical body to do it per the Constitution.

I’m so confused...on one hand the fact that you mentioned shining shoes means you are a racist, but on the other hand, the fact that you recognized, through your white privledge, that it is historically a racist comment means you aren’t. Could you just add something gay bashing so I can be furious anyway?

Before he abrogates any semblance of the US as a constitutional Republic, Congress needs to do the same to the Great Obama (at least more than a ridiculous lawsuit) ... While the voices of the Tea Party have long resounded in opposition, and many of us being in the same boat rage on about the imminent loss of our basic freedoms, this W/H windbag orates in never-ending campaign mode, quite happy with the course he has set for the country. And those who may hold hope in the Supreme Court providing justice have quite a wait coming – the ones who allowed unborn children of nearly any age aborted and proclaimed Obamacare a legitimate tax cannot be counted on.
