A large segment of the American people are demanding that the Republican controlled Congress stop President Obama from circumventing the Constitution of the United States and acting like a dictator with no constraints or checks and balances. The Republican led House and Senate are responding to abuse of power by the president with measured rhetoric and piecemeal legislation  that Obama has promised to veto.

So far, the Congress has lacked the courage to cut his personal budget or the budget of Obamacare or other unconstitutional programs.

Impeachment is the constitutional remedy for a president that is out of control and abusing his power. He is endangering the American people by giving aid and comfort to our sworn enemies. He is dismantling the best health care system and the most proficient military force the world has ever known. He is illegally misusing the employees of government agencies to punish his political enemies.

Now is the time to stop the politically-correct revision of history to satisfy a few people with nothing better to do. Ben Tillman, Thomas Clemson and John C. Calhoun, were imperfect historical figures as were Abe Lincoln, Robert and Jack Kennedy, Richard Nixon, J. Edgar Hoover and Martin Luther King. However, they are historical figures none the less. Some people are offended by all of the above being honored. We must get over it and have the backbone to tell the troublemakers to find something worthwhile to do. It would be an insult to every Clemson graduate to change the name of Tillman Hall to anything else.

Clemson University has a proud history. In the early days it provided an opportunity for the children of poor rural families to obtain a quality education and advance the South Carolina Agricultural economy. The college trained leaders for national defense. More Officers trained and commissioned through the Clemson ROTC program led troops and served with distinction during World War II than from any other school, including the United States Military Academy.

Now that Republicans have control of both houses of Congress, it is time to get down to the important business of defending the “Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” It is also past time for the Congress to do whatever is necessary to ensure the safety and freedom of the American people. This is their first duty.

The Constitution of the United States gives Congress and Congress alone the authority and power to declare war. During the Vietnam War, traitors such as Jane Fonda and Bill Ayers were not charged with crimes for aiding the enemy because the United States was not technically engaged in a declared war. Many of these individuals that cost American lives in Vietnam are in powerful government, academic, media and corporate positions of importance today.

The Republican “Grand Old Party” has a historic chance to prove it’s worth and lead the United States of America back to it’s roots as a constitutional republic. We begin 2015 with a large Republican majority in both the US House and Senate. If the Republican Lawmakers have the will to do so, they can take the initiative from President Obama. They can demonstrate to the American people precisely who this man Obama really is and what his plan is for undermining the Constitution of the United States and destroying the free enterprise system and Western Judeo-Christian values that have made our nation great. No Republican presidential candidate has had the courage to do that in the previous two election campaigns, consequently Republicans must share the blame for the current problems created by Obama.

Remember the discussion of “Death Panels” when Obama and the Democrats were passing and implementing Obamacare? Members of Congress claimed to have removed the provisions from the law. Others denied the provision was in the law. They simply moved it around and changed the name. The “Death Panel” is now called the Independent Payment Advisory Board or IPAB.

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin gave the name to the panel more than 5-years ago. She was ridiculed. It is now reality and most people don’t know what is happening.

WND reported that the Supreme Court has ordered the Administration to respond to a lawsuit brought by the Goldwater Institute that challenges the constitutionality of Obamacare. The Court has directed the Administration to present its case in support of IPAB by January 21, 2015.

1 And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.

2 (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)

3 And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)

5 To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.

As a student of and a participant in a brief segment of Military History, it is my deeply held view that the next two years may be the most precarious and dangerous years the American people have faced since the 1860s, or maybe ever. The sad and tragic aspect of our situation is that we have brought it on ourselves by deliberate actions or through naïve ignorance.

Call me old-fashioned or a fanatic or whatever you choose, but in my view, most of us and all of our elected officials are looking for solutions in all the wrong places. Political parties and liberal judges don’t have the solutions. Before you can find a solution, you must define the problem. Our current national leaders can’t even bring themselves to call terrorists and known enemies by the right names. How can they be trusted to find workable solutions in our national interest?
