Checks and Balances in Government

Our government is set up to have checks and balances.

Have you thought about what happens to that system if Barack Obama is elected?

We would have a Democrat Congress and a Democrat President.

Whatever Obama will want, he'll get.

When Supreme Court positions come up, Obama will be able to appoint whoever he wants and will know they'll breeze through.

Then he'll have control over Congress, the Presidential office and our legal system.

Given the current economic difficulties can you imagine how easy it will be for him to take over the country, change the Constitution, nationalize anything he chooses?

Think it's far fetched? Study history and see how easy countries were led down the path of communism, dictatorships or socialism. Smooth talkers made the future look rosy but the reality was the ruination of economies, war, poverty and the loss of freedom. Our country's future is at stake. Our Constitution is at risk. We need to keep our system of checks and balances if we are going to keep our freedom.

Great article, and so true. It is scary the amount of power to be had.
