In less than a week, Rep. Trey Gowdy's (R-SC) bill HR 4138, ENFORCE The Law Act of 2014, passed through the House of Representatives.
This bill was introduced as part of a broader election-year strategy designed to do one of two things: Either force Obama to uphold the law or get him admit to the public that he does not believe the Constitution applies to him.
The ENFORCE Act states that Obama and all of his federal regulatory bureaucrats must faithfully execute the laws passed by Congress. If he does not do that, Members of Congress can sue the Executive branch, including Obama personally.
Support from the public through floods of faxes and phone calls to the House of Representatives made a significant impact on the outcome of this effort to get Obama to follow the laws stated in the Constitution. Read more about how public support through faxes and phone calls can greatly influence the decision making of Representatives in the House.
Now HR 4138 must pass through the Senate before getting to the President. If any Democrat votes "No" on HR 4138, they will be providing ammunition to their 2014 opponents. They will pretty much be stating that the United States - in their opinon - no longer has a Constitution.
Obama is panicking and has threatened to immediately veto the ENFORCE Act if it makes it through the Senate. He knows that his power is starting to crumble.
If Obama vetoes the ENFORCE Act, members of Congress will finally be able to say, "We've exhausted every other option to try to get Obama to uphold the law. The only option left is Impeachment!"
Democrats in the Senate are disgusted with Obama now that they know Obama was using the NSA and the CIA to spy on them. Obama has refused to uphold our immigration laws, our welfare laws and even Obamacare.
Even House Speaker Obama-Cheerleader John Boehner was swayed to support the bill. Find out how you can participate in convincing the Senate to pass the ENFORCE Act here.
When Obama said he would veto it, Boehner said, "The fact that [Obama] would threaten to veto a measure requiring him to uphold his constitutional obligations underscores why this bill is needed, and why Senate Democrats should pass it immediately."
Some Democrats are so disgusted with Obama they even want him to follow the law under Article 2, Section 3 of the Constitution, which this bill requires him to do.
Can you actually imagine a Democrat wanting to follow the Constitution these days?
If Obama does not uphold the law, Members of Congress will be allowed under the ENFORCE Act to sue the Executive branch, including Obama personally. No one, especially Obama, is allowed to pick and choose which laws to follow and which ones to ignore.
America can either return to her constitutional roots or descend into a banana republic dictatorship.
The strategy behind Rep. Gowdy's ENFORCE Act is brilliant. It hurts the Democrats if they vote "No" and it hurts Obama if they vote "Yes."
If you believe that no one including the President of the United States is exempt from following Constitutional laws, you can help convince the Senate to pass this bill here. Please also share this link with everyone you know so that they can help too.
