Waiting for the Ermächtigungsgesetz

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.

Polls Indicate America May Be DoomedIt's Not Fascism When We Do It

Far too many people simply have no concept of the sacrifices it took to win our freedom, and what it takes to maintain it. A recent Rasmussen Report highlights that disturbing fact in a way that makes me worry that this generation will be the one that sells us all into slavery to tyranny.

Rasmussen conducted a telephone poll of 800 likely voters that asked respondents “Should the president have the right to ignore federal court rulings if they are standing in the way of actions he feels are important for the country?” The results of this poll are mind blowing, and disturbing.

According to Rasmussen, 26% of those polled believe the President should have the right to ignore federal court rulings. It is not surprising that Democrats were more likely to believe this, with a full 43% saying he should be able to ignore the courts while only 35% believe otherwise. This represents a plurality of Democrats who believe the federal courts should have no ability to prevent the President from acting outside the law!
