The Constitution requires the president to take an oath or affirmation that says: "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

Article II, Section 3 says, "He shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed."

In his unequal and discriminatory implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare), President Barack Obama is now violating both his constitutional oath of office and his constitutional duty to faithfully execute the laws.

The Obamacare law mandates that individuals must maintain health-insurance coverage for themselves and their dependents or pay a penalty. Similarly, it requires employers with 50 or more full-time workers to provide those workers with health-insurance coverage or pay a penalty.

The separate sections of the law spelling out these two mandates conclude with identical language: "The amendments made by this section shall apply to periods beginning after December 31, 2013."

For Obama to fulfill his constitutional oath of office and faithfully execute the Obamacare law, he would need to take care that his administration enforced this statutory Dec. 31, 2013, health-insurance deadline on both individuals and employers.

There is no doubt that Obama President Obama has overstepped and over reached his authority on many occasions both in his first term and now at the beginning of his second term of office. His promise to transform American is being kept. But at what cost to American Freedom and Liberty.

Well, this ignores the fact that ObamaCare is undeniably in gross violation of the Constitution, having abrogated a full 80% of the Bill of Rights, as well as direct prohibitons to Congress, such as direct taxation, and bills of attainder.

By this fact, 5 of the Nine members of the Court must be impeached as well, not to mention every member of the Congress that voted for this obscenity. Furthermore, an independent counsel must be appointed to investigate any corruption involved in Roberts' last minute flip-vote on ObamaCare, after having written a will 70% of what became the minority opinion entirely rejecting ObamaCare.

You cannot simply reference support of the Constitution, and then ignore the vast expanse of that Constitution violated by ObamaCare to only target the Commander-n-Thief.

article 2 of the Constitution states ....the President "shall", ....it does not say "may"

all laws passed are to be executed into law.......the President does not have to power to choose when he will execute them in law.

What blows my mind is that it doesn't seem to matter how much people point out these blatantly obvious violations, nothing is really being done but a bunch of talking.

Why isn't he being impeached???

Because they're not violations, and he has done nothing that is worthy of being impeached. All your disagreeing with his policies, and dislike of him personally aside, that is the simple truth of the matter.

Because we have a democratic party that only cares about the Ends, by whatever means, and Republicans that are virtually complicit, and care more about their partisan future, than they do about their integrity, which results in their ever-decreasing likelihood of having any future at all.

Translation: They're all corrupt bastards only interested in the advancement of their own power, with very few exceptions, and I'm not even entirely sure about them.

There are also a lot of uninformed people who just do things without knowing why they are doing them - the large majority of Obama's voter base.

LMAO Impeached for what? It was just eight months ago that Obama sent Mitt Romney licking his wounds.

The same reason we didn't impeach most of the other Presidents who violated the Constitution.

Given the recent track record of impeachments, you apparently have to get a blow job to be impeached.

It's not as if that ignorance stops at the Obama voter base.

How many of people actually call themselves (or others) conservatives simply because they're in the Republican party?

The fact is that most Americans believe they somehow innately know and understand the Constitution simply by virtue of being born an American citizen, when they have no real grasp of the Constitution at all. And many of those base their 'knowledge' of the Constitution on corruptions promoted by the judiciary.

How many can pick out the gross corruptions of that Constitution voiced by people like Nancy Pelosi, when she says that the government's fabrication of even more rights is a continuation of the founders vision? I'll wager not all that many.

I bet if I were to start a thread today in this Constitution forum on "birthright citizenship", most would think it is a reference to being born on American soil, i.e. 'anchor babies', when that corruption only came about in 1898 via the gross malfeasance of Horace Gray in the Wong Kim Ark decision, and has no "birthright" to it at all.

He has been committing impeachable offenses since his first days in office, involving gross abuse of power, and violation of Constitution. Even his own rewrite of the bankruptcy law as applied to GM, and then further abuse of office in using its bully pulpit to intimidate lawful preferred GM creditors, as well as to single out other lawful private citizens, was enough to get him impeached.

The office of President does not have any sort of legitimate authority to do any of that.

Obamacare does not violate the constitution.
1) Where is the enumerated power to take over health care and dictate its terms, not to mention take over de facto ownership of each and every American citizen's body, and declare their worth relative to other citizens, and dictate what health care they might, or might not, be entitled to?

2) How do you imagine ObamaCare might be in any way be Constitutional when it abrogates a full 80% of the Bill of Rights, with even more rights to be forfeit at the mere "deeming" of the Secretary of Health and Human Services?

ObamaCare isn't just flagrantly in violation of the Constitution, but it is so obscene that it is real and undeniable cause for Americans to take up arms against this corrupt form of government, so as to restore their freedoms.

There was a time in this country when "Liberal" meant standing up for those unalienable individual rights, and against Big Brother oppressive government, and when that outlook was more than defensible. Now the term "Liberal" is nothing but a lie, in disregard of the Constitution and repeatedly violating those individual rights in support of an ever-expanding big government dictate and intrusion into every aspect of our lives.

I once had respect for "Liberal", even if I did not agree with it, but now there is no means to respect that moniker at all.

Where did President Obama blatantly violate the Constitution?
Reference post #17 for starters.

Obama has been showing his intent to abuse authority and violate the Constitution even before he got into the Presidency.

During the midst of the Democratic primaries, Obama made a trip over to Kenya and gave stump speeches alongside fellow Lou tribesman Raila Odinga, asserting the corruption of the Kenyan government. Meanwhile Raila Odinga had signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with minority Islamists, indicating that he would institute Shariah law on an otherwise 90% Christian populace. When Odinga lost the election, the appearance of the American Senator alongside Odinga gave him such credibility that the Islamists revolted and engaged in unrestrained brutality and cold-blooded murder by machete against the Christians, even locking in the members of the town of Eldorett in their church, and raising that church to the ground, burning alive all those inside. As a result of the false credibility given him by Obama, the Kenyan government had to create an entirely new office for Odinga. In the aftermath of these events, and the resulting brutal murders of some 1,500 Kenyans, and 600,000 Kenyans being displaced, the Kenyan government filed an official complaint against Obama.

At MINIMAL, Obama's actions in Kenya show an extreme lack of judgement, and abuse of position which we see continued throughout his tenure in the presidency, as well as violation of the Logan Act.

Nonsense. He was giving speeches alongside Odinga and asserting Kenya government's corruption. Furthermore, this story did NOT originate from Corsi; I was posting on it long before Corsi ever made his claims. Corsi tried to make a story of it for himself but he muddled it.

The fact is, Obama should not have been in Kenya involved in any sort of politics AT ALL. Period. Much less assigning any credibility to a candidate by even his silence, and he was not silent. Obama in fact did speak repeatedly about the corruption of the Kenyan government, while not stating any names specifically, yet when done in association with Odinga, the intent was clear.

That same politifact nonsense tries to claim Odinga is not a socialist, because he's just a "populist", when the fact is Odinga is actually a Marxist. That article more shows the corruption and bias of politifact, than it does any error to the story.

No surprise. You've already bought into an ideology, which is in disregard of facts and outcome.
