Abus­ing ex­ec­u­tive power

Maryland Independent - - Community Forum -

Pres­i­dent Obama in seven years has is­sued more than 700 “Ex­ec­u­tive Or­ders” — which is 100 times more than any other pres­i­dent.

The out­rage is that his ex­ec­u­tive or­ders au­tho­rize the govern­ment, at his be­hest, to com­pletely take over ev­ery sec­tor of our coun­try — com­mu­ni­ca­tions, trans­porta­tion, in­dus­try — ev­ery­thing. His ex­ec­u­tive or­ders — to­tally with­out the ap­prov- al of Congress — have the power of law. Un­for­tu­nately, most Amer­i­cans have ab­so­lutely no idea what is hap­pen­ing. Our peo­ple seem to care more about sports, racism, scan­dals, drugs and other dis­trac­tions than the di­rec­tion our coun­try is tak­ing. Why? Be­cause our na­tion now be­lieves that “po­lit­i­cal cor­rect­ness” is more im­por­tant than truth. David Lines, La Plata
