WHO really has the power in the United States? Is it the President? It would certainly seem so with our current President. Obama has ignored Congressional permission, ignored our Constitution and broken laws by using Executive Orders to further his own Socialist political agenda.
In ONE attempt to finally stop his lawless ways, many states sued because “Obamacare” is unconstitutional and is heading to the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court has the power to declare “Obamacare” unconstitutional and kill it dead in its tracks. So does the Supreme Court have the most power?
Each SCOTUS member has a lifetime appointment nominated by the current sitting President. The nominee is obviously going to have the same political outlook as the President that nominated them, so whichever party is the majority appoints justices to the SCOTUS who can impose their political “mantra” on our country. That gives the Supreme Court a tremendous amount of power to reshape our current laws. Obama got two of his left-wing, socialist friends on the Supreme Court when the Democrat’s had full control of approval. So, we know have two socialists (if not outright communist) sitting on the highest court in our Republic based country with the power to reshape our laws.
Due to the fact that Congress approves Supreme Court nominee’s and passes laws (that can override a decision the Supreme Court imposed on our country) , do they have the most power? It would seem so, but it comes down to what party holds the greatest number in the House and what party holds the greatest in the Senate. If the same party holds the most in both, then Congress is extremely powerful. If the same party’s majority is large enough, they can even pass laws that the current sitting President vetoes.
Unfortunately, during the first two years of Obama’s Presidency, the liberal Democrats had the majority in the Senate and the House and passed both his SCOTUS nominees and every socialistic bill that Obama wanted passed. Our country has paid and continues to pay a very heavy price due to Obama’s intention’s to turn the United States into a socialistic country.
So who really holds the power in our country? In my opinion, the answer is quite simple. The registered voters in our country have the real power. Registered voters place all of Congress and the President into office. Registered voters can disallow our rewriting our Constitution and to keep our Republic in place in our country. Registered voters need to vote for citizens running for office that will keep our constitution safe, abide by our Constitution and keep this great country a Republic…not let it turn into a Socialist, Communist or Marxist State. So, shame on all of you that voted for Obama and all the liberal loony Congressmen that are trying to destroy our great country. If you are not registered…then double shame on you!
