Barack Obama: A Failed Experiment In Just 200 Days

This RNC ad which just came out highlights the first 200 days and the accomplishments of the Obama Presidency — 2.5 million dollars lost, trillions in additional deficits, bailout after bailout — and declares the Obama Presidency a failed experiment.  Then, it asks if America is ready to try another Obama experiment in regards to health care.  I wonder how the average American voter would react to this ad? Given the current state of our economy and people’s increasing distrust of the stimulus, I think it could have a devastating effect if it gets wide airplay.  With the State-run Media, however, I doubt that it will see the light of day beyond YouTube and the blogosphere.

I don’t think it was intended, but I like the touch of the similar music from The Dark Knight, especially considering the timing of the Obama-Joker-Socialism posters that began appearing in LA this week.

The real problem with the federal government, IMO, is not “leaders” like misguided Socialist Obama, but the constitutionally ignorant people who voted him into the Oval Office. More specifically, as a consequence of the people not teaching the Constitution and its history to their children for many generations, the people have failed to understand the following. They no longer understand the Oval Office’s constitutionally limited powers where domestic issues are concerned. Given that the federal Constitution is silent about public healthcare, for example, the 10th A. automatically reserves government power to regulate and lay taxes for healthcare to the states, not the Oval Office and Congress.

The problem is that the state sovereignty-ignorant people have been electing state lawmakers and federal senators who, unsurprisingly, are as state sovereignty-ignorant as the people are. Consequently, federal and state “leaders” are not doing their jobs to protect the people from the power-hungry, Constitution-ignoring federal government, particularly where constitutional unauthorized federal taxes and spending are concerned.

In fact, speaking of state sovereignty, Chief Justice Marshall had established the following case precedent, now wrongly ignored, which appropriately limits the power of the feds to lay taxes.

“Congress is not empowered to tax for those purposes which are within the exclusive province of the States.” –Chief Justice Marshall, GIBBONS V. OGDEN (1824)

So not only were Obama’s Stimulus Package and proposed Obamacare not constitutionally authorized, but based on Justice Marshall’s official words, the feds never had the power to lay taxes to finance such programs in the first place.

Finally, the following link is an analysis as to how the ill-conceived, anti-state sovereignty 16th and 17th Amendments got us into this big federal government mess.

The 16th & 17th Amendments and the big, corrupt fed. gov.
