Senate Seeks to Create Caesar

Where's Rand on this?

While all of America is distracted and focused on the death of Osama bin Laden, our President and his minions have been fast at work laying the groundwork for S. 679: Presidential Appointment Efficiency and Streamlining Act of 2011 to speed through the Senate and then make its way into the House and then to the President to sign. Yes, the other hand is quickly forming into a dictatorial fist that is about to smash our Constitution.

As you will recall, the beginning of the end of liberty in Rome commenced with Augustus Caesar who compromised the authority of the Senate through the force of arms and basically the Senate became a facade. America is poised with this proposed bill, to morph immediately from a Republic into an empire with the privileged eunuchs of the Senate as window dressing and a dictator – the first American Caesar – at the country’s helm.

...

In essence they want to give the President the sole power to appoint people to positions of his choosing within our government. Obama would be free to do this without the approval of the Senate. Senate approval of such positions is mandated by the U.S. Constitution in Article II, Section 2 under the “Appointments Clause”:

… shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments. (emphasis added)

This bill will do away with the checks and balances that separate an American form of government from those such as Venezuela and Brazil. Already we have power mongers such as Cass Sunstein our Regulatory Czar (more commonly known as the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs and more aptly titled the Office of Government Propaganda) running amok across the US using agencies such as the EPA as a weapon of regulation and control. There is not a single area in our country that Sunstein does not have his claws sunk deep into. It should scare the crap out of Americans, but all I hear are crickets. The silence of capitulation seals our fate as surely as the thunderous applause of approval – so ends the Republic.

RIP America

It would appear that no one cares about the American experiment. Our shining beacon of freedom is all but out just a glowing ember remains. Next to it a bright "open 24 hrs" sign directing people to the nearby Walmart.
Low prices are a good trade for liberty it seems.

Let us all repent, pray, and prepare. We know how this next chapter begins, and unfortunately how it it will probably end.

Peace be with you...

Ciao

Liberty = Responsibility

Liberty defined - Caesar chapter

In the Doctor's new book, he has a chilling chapter on how Caesar took power in Rome. Highly recommended.

Yes, the chapter was called

Yes, the chapter was called 'Empire'. It, like many other chapters in the book, blew my mind!

they can do what they want... at this point in time their system is doomed... just like the roman empire this faux democracy has run its course and is a remnant of what could have been... that is, without the corporate state we would be just fine... but the greed is so big and overwhelming it cannot be sustained... the best thing to do is to sit back and watch the show, as this has not happened for about fifteen hundred years and this will be a bigger and more spectacular extravaganza... as it sez in the emerson, lake and palmer song, ''welcome back my friends to the show that never ends''... enjoy the show, it's a dynamo... peace-out...j

Once Emperors were in power, it was the armies to get rid of em

Just what sort of show are you looking for? Military putsches in Washington every other year?

Once Emperors were in power, it took armies to get rid of em. Emperors were made and unmade by ambitious Generals for centuries. Until the end, when every General had his own Emperor. The year 407 had 22 emperors, I recall. And that's when the barbarians invaded Rome and put their own emperors in the purple.
