Here is one of the “loopholes” that some liberals are saying FORBIDS a debt ceiling….
The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions …, shall not be questioned. [End excerpt]
Of course, this section does not give open license to the president to raise the debt limit on his own, but a Supreme Court ruling on this would be helpful.
Here is another trick the administration may use…
… don’t send out any Social Security checks. Blame Republicans.
There was a time when this may have worked, but if Obama does this now, in 2011, it is very doubtful that voters will blame Republicans. For one thing, all Republicans will have to do is to put out ads, saying, “Obama is still sending out checks to foreign countries. He can send Social Security checks any time he decides to do so. He is playing politics with your money.”
Of course, if Obama refuses to pay social security, while at the same time sending out welfare checks (especially to illegal aliens), the Republicans will have a field day.
Obama will say that Republicans are deliberately wrecking the economy to make him look bad. But if he does this, Republicans must say, “We put our plan on the table and VOTED on it in the House – and passed it. Where is the Democrats’ budget? Why are they playing politics with it?”
In short, in the dirtiest of all political campaigns ever to be waged, Obama and his cadre will pull out ALL the stops. They will use every dirty trick in the book. I believe they will send union thugs to Washington, to Congressmen’s houses … they will lie, cheat, steal, make false accusations, sue in court, start military actions overseas, and even start military actions here at home. If you can think of it, they will do it, and then they will do even worse.
Dear Americans, we are not in a struggle – we are at war. Obama’s strategy is to destroy our nation. To him and his minions, the Constitution is irrelevant rubbish, to be used when it is convenient to them, but to be violated at their whim.
To us, the Constitution is worthy of the closing words in the Declaration of Independence…
“… with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.”
Dear Americans, nothing less will do. Our commitment to liberty and the Constitution must be unswerving, unyielding, and total.
I never thought that the day would come when I might be called upon to die for my country inside our own borders. But if that day is soon to be upon us, I pray God will empty me of all doubt, and fill me with that terrible resolve that Japanese Admiral Yamamoto correctly feared after he bombed Pearl Harbor.
For indeed, within conservative America, Obama has awakened a sleeping giant.
