All 50 states are beginning to get wise to Washington’s scheme of passing on regulatory requirements to the states without offering any funding mechanism whatsoever.

This is what we call “unfunded mandates.”

Let’s call them what they really are – unconstitutional power abuses by the federal government.

The Constitution lays out clearly, simply and succinctly the few powers vested in Congress. All others, it says, are reserved for the states and the people.

The incredible deficits run up by Washington and many state capitals are a direct result of Congress’ history of defying constitutional restraints on its power. This goes for the president, too, and the Supreme Court. But Congress is the biggest offender of all.

Except possibly this president, if you want to call him that – which I refuse to do.

Obama represents the biggest “unfunded mandate” in the history of the nation.

Here’s why:

* His election was a crock from the get-go.

He never satisfied the meager constitutional requirements of office.

He never established eligibility.

In fact, with all of the power centers and bureaucracies established in Washington to regulate virtually every facet of our lives, none of them ever vetted Obama’s eligibility for office. Isn’t that amazing? What’s even more shocking is that one of them, the U.S. Senate, actually did vet his opponent, John McCain.

Whether they came to the right conclusion or did an adequate job, I will reserve judgment since he lost the election anyway. Furthermore, not one of the 50 states charged with conducting federal elections did anything to establish Obama’s constitutional eligibility, either. Now we find ourselves in a predicament with significantly more than half the country doubting whether the man in the White House is even legit.

* Now there’s an effort under way in at least a dozen states to ensure a debacle like 2008 is never repeated. And all we hear from the watchdogs in the Big Media is that somehow the states are exceeding their authority. What? Show me inthe Constitution where it prohibits the states from doing anything they want to do.

* Meanwhile, Obama is spending money without any accountability to the Constitution or the people.

He is racking up the biggest deficits in history.

He is borrowing against the credit of Americans yet unborn without their having the slightest say in what is spent and how. He is demagoging his way through by threatening not to send out Social Security checks to elderly folks and by forcing default on America’s loan obligations unless Congress increases the debt limit.

That’s the old con game played by politicians everywhere: We’ll stop doing what we’re obliged to do to punish anyone who stops us from doing what we want to do. All Washington needs to do to remain solvent is to cut the budget by $700 billion. I could do it with a pencil and a napkin – just zero out useless, unconstitutional departments and agencies that would never be missed by Americans other than the paper-pushers they currently employ.

Columnist John Stossel has done this in admirable fashion. I can’t argue with anything he came up with to put Washington in the black, and I know I can come up with billions more in cuts. It’s easy! It’s constitutional! And it’s fun!

So do you see why I say the biggest unfunded mandate in Washington is actually Barack Hussein Obama?

FOLKS –Here is something interesting The U.S. Senate DID NOT Vet Brack Hussein Obama Jr (sometimes called Barry)-but-wait here it comes———–they DID VET JOHN McCAIN-HOW ABOUT THAT FOLKS-DOEN,T THAT JUST MAKE YOUR DAY?

AND HOW ABOUT THIS–I KNOW THIS IS GOING TO MAKE YOU WARM AND FUZZY ALL OVER--Not one of the 50 states charged with conducting federal elections did anything to establish Obama’s constitutional eligibility

Patriots, do you smell a rat here? Congress running up to the 2008 national elections did NOT vet Brack Hussein Obama Jr—WHY WHY WHY that is the sixty four thousand dollar question.

Was this all set up? Remember the Democrats are liars,sneaks,haters of the constitution, so nothing I mean nothings is beyond what these SOB’S will do to get and retain power.

Obama and the Democrats have spent our money borrowed money by the billions from China, they have one goal and that is destroy this country and rebuild it as a Socialist state, where people like those protesting in Wisconsin will be right at home-after all they are all Marxist/Socialist packaged as Patriots, lovers of freedom but in reality what could be further from the truth.

MOST AMERICANS never heard of Saul Alinsky. Yet his Marxist ideology cast a shadow on the 2008 election. Democrats Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama both worship at the altar of Alinskyism.

Wisconsin,Indiana,Ohio, the whole damn country is turning their backs on American HOW DID WE ARRIVE AT THIS POINT ,what got us here,why are so many Americans embracing SOCIALISM?

Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama both worship at the altar of Alinskyism.

In a 1971 book called Rules for Radicals, Alinsky scolded the Sixties Left for scaring off potential converts in Middle America. True revolutionaries do not flaunt their radicalism, Alinsky taught. They cut their hair, put on suits and infiltrate the system from within.

Alinsky viewed revolution as a slow, patient process. The trick was to penetrate existing institutions such as churches, unions and political parties.

In his native Chicago, Alinsky courted power wherever he found it. His alliance with prominent Catholic clerics, such as Bishop Bernard Sheil, gave him respectability. His friendship with crime bosses such as Frank Nitti – Al Capone’s second-in-command – gave Alinsky clout on the street.

He excelled at wooing wealthy funders. Start-up money for his Industrial Areas Foundation – a training school for radical organizers – came from department-store mogul Marshall Field III, Sears Roebuck heiress Adele Rosenwald Levy, and Gardiner Howland Shaw, an assistant secretary of state for Franklin Roosevelt.

Alinsky once boasted, “I feel confident that I could persuade a millionaire on a Friday to subsidize a revolution for Saturday out of which he would make a huge profit on Sunday even though he was certain to be executed on Monday.”

One Alinsky benefactor was Wall Street investment banker Eugene Meyer, who served as Chairman of the Federal Reserve from 1930 to 1933. Meyer and his wife Agnes co-owned The Washington Post. They used their newspaper to promote Alinsky.

Agnes Meyer personally wrote a six-part series in 1945, praising Alinsky’s work in Chicago slums. Her series, called “The Orderly Revolution”, made Alinsky famous. President Truman ordered 100 reprints of it.

During the Sixties, Alinsky wielded tremendous power behind the scenes.

When President Johnson launched his War on Poverty in 1964, Alinsky allies infiltrated the program, steering federal money into Alinsky projects.

In 1966, Senator Robert Kennedy allied himself with union leader Cesar Chavez, an Alinsky disciple. Chavez had worked ten years for Alinsky, beginning in 1952. Kennedy soon drifted into Alinsky’s circle.

After race riots shook Rochester, New York, Alinsky descended on the city and began pressuring Eastman-Kodak to hire more blacks. Kennedy supported Alinsky’s shakedown. The two men had an “understanding”, Alinsky later wrote.

Alinsky’s crowning achievement was his recruitment of a young high school student named Hillary Rodham. She met Alinsky through a radical church group. Hillary wrote an analysis of Alinsky’s methods for her senior thesis at Wellesley College. They remained friends until Alinsky’s death in 1972.

Alinsky tried to hire Hillary as a community organizer, but she chose instead to attend Yale Law School. Nonetheless, Alinsky’s network continued guiding Hillary’s career.

Fresh out of law school at age 26, Hillary received a prestigious appointment to the House Judiciary Committee’s Watergate investigative team in 1974. She got the job on the recommendation of Peter and Marian Wright Edelman.

The Edelmans have been trusted mentors of Hillary since 1969. New Republic editor Martin Peretz called Marian “Hillary’s closest sister and ideological soulmate”. Marian Wright Edelman also happens to be an Alinskyite, having served on the Board of Trustees of Alinsky’s Industrial Areas Foundation.

Many leftists view Hillary as a sell-out because she claims to hold moderate views on some issues. However, Hillary is simply following Alinsky’s counsel to do and say whatever it takes to gain power.

Barack Obama is also an Alinskyite. Trained by Alinsky’s Industrial Areas Foundation, Obama spent years teaching workshops on the Alinsky method. In 1985 he began a four-year stint as a community organizer in Chicago, working for an Alinskyite group called the Developing Communities Project. Later, he worked with ACORN and its offshoot Project Vote, both creations of the Alinsky network.

Camouflage is key to Alinsky-style organizing. While trying to build coalitions of black churches in Chicago, Obama caught flak for not attending church himself. He became an instant churchgoer.

That Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama share an Alinskyite background tells us two things.

First, they are leftists, dedicated to overthrowing our Constitutional system.

Second, they will go to any length to conceal their radicalism from the public.

That is the Alinsky method. And that is today’s Democratic Party.
