To The Daily Sun,
In the Nov. 21st edition of The Laconia Daily Sun, Jon Hoyt made a very telling statement: "As the GOP wolves are surrounding the president like he is a wounded lion, they are forgetting one thing: the lion is the king of the jungle for a reason; the lion is a cat and a cat has nine lives." It screams of a gross failure of our educational system. American History has been rewritten and even expunged from our public schools. "Social Studies" (from personal high school experience, this should be called SOCIALIST studies!) has replaced American History. The founding of our nation, the founders and our Constitution have been evicted by liberal progressivism.
Please, take some time to check out what powers are those of the LEGISLATIVE branch, the JUDICIAL branch and the EXECUTIVE branch of government. Let's make that challenge easy — the Constitution of the United States is on line: http://www.usconstitution.net/const.html
The POTUS is an elected official. Obama has, in his time in office, attempted to usurp the powers of Congress more egregiously than any past POTUS. The POTUS does not make laws, does not decide which laws may be disregarded in what manner, or enforced if he feels like they should be enforced.
The POTUS is an elected official and as such, a servant of the people. He is NOT a king! Since our country was established we have never had a king! Our country has a president with limited powers for a reason: Liberty!
