Bailing Out Of The Constitution

by George F. Will - March 29th, 2009 - Washington Post

It is high time Americans heard an argument that might turn a vague national uneasiness into a vivid awareness of something going very wrong. The argument is that the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 (EESA) is unconstitutional.

By enacting it, Congress did not in any meaningful sense make a law. Rather, it made executive branch officials into legislators.

Congress seems predisposed to turn over more and more of its legislative function to the executive branch. At the same time congress seems more and more predisposed to "punish" any citizen who it feels should be punished, without any of the protections of fairness and justice required by a court.

How else did the legislature get the right to subpoena various business executives to appear before congress for the abusive denunciations and ridicule that we have seen in recent weeks. Why are judges not outraged?

I have already posted a few articles talking about the banana republic quality of our current Obama regime and the Democrats who rule congress. Match this with the tyranny of a court system that has long since abrogated any concern for justice or the rule of law and we find ourselves in a nation headed for tyranny and revolution.
