43% of Democrats Want Obama to Rule as Dictator

You think we’re just being rhetorical when we label them fascists?

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 26% of Likely U.S. Voters think the president should have the right to ignore federal court rulings if they are standing in the way of actions he feels are important for the country. Sixty percent (60%) disagree and say the president should not have the right to ignore the courts. Fifteen percent (15%) are undecided.

But perhaps more unsettling to supporters of constitutional checks and balances is the finding that 43% of Democrats believe the president should have the right to ignore the courts. Only 35% of voters in President Obama’s party disagree.

That should be horrifying.

  1. So, that’s roughly 50 million enemies within. Half of a third & about half of those would be politically aware enough to say so. 25 million fools, at the most.
    They’re not the majority that they would like to think & an ignorant target seldom screams when taken down.

  2. Watch that poll change drastically when a Republican is in office.

  3. Since Jeff likes the term ethnic cleansing wouldn’t this apply to indigenous white British, especially since all the homes are paid for by productive taxpayers?

    I have always wondered why is it referred to as “white flight” when it happens to whites but ethnic cleansing when it is being done to any other group.

  4. When does talk like this cross over from simply being fascist rhetoric to actual treason?

  6. Tommy:

    Republicans are more intelligent than Democrats and also believe in the Constitution, so I hope the percentage would be around 15% or less. Anything over 1% would be a disgrace.

  7. Outrageous… This is what happens when you stop requiring Social Studies and Civics be taught in the schools. Soon you have Presidents-for-life, Commandante’, il’Duce, and der Fuehrer. All lawfully voted into office, not installed by coup d’etat.

  8. There are open calls for nullification of federal court rulings, specifically with regards to marriage equality rulings, on Free Republic every day. They constantly beg/demand/hope that a governor and/or an AG of a red state will ignore the court’s rulings.
    The right wants the same thing as these lefties do, IOW. Nothing to see here.

  9. hmm_contrib, I confess to a split on the nullification issue. My emotional side likes state nullification on various issues. However, my emotions are over-ruled by the rational side that says not following the Constitution will be worse, and that way leads to chaos, if not worse.

    (Disclaimers: I’ve seen nullification on more issues than single sex marriage, and I do not post on–I barely even go to read–Free Republic.)

    Someone is apparently incapable of reading and understanding the polling data.

  12. Oh, my. Nullification has a specific meaning which, if asked, I can delineate. The President ignoring the courts is not “nullification,” it is dereliction of duty.

    What hmm_contrib @ #8 clearly does not comprehend is the concept of popular sovereignty, the concept of a republic and the concept of the division of powers. Nor does he understand the 10th Amendment.

    This much apparent ignorance makes his point less than moot; his point is asinine.

    There are NO federal elections. NONE. ZERO. NADA. The states elect from within their state population those people who will represent the voters of the state in the House of Representatives and those two people who will represent them in the Senate. Every four years, the voters of the state elect “electors” to vote in the electoral college and choose who will be President and Vice President of the 50/57 states. Each state elects electors from within the state and each state casts its electoral college votes at its state capitol. Those votes are transferred to the House of Representatives according to the timetable and in the manner set out in the Constitution.

    Nullification is a process by which a state challenges the national government on the grounds that it has violated the Constitution. No government in our system is sovereign. Nullifying an act of government is an act of sovereignty on the part of the people who are the sovereigns. Think: We the People.

    When some people think the President can willy-nilly ignore the courts, the Constitution, the Congress or the sovereign people, they are yielding their powers to a dictatorial form of government whether it be fascist, communist of Idi Amin-ist.

    hmm_contrib has shown how a dunce conflates ideology with uncritical thinking and elementary understanding of a not too difficult set of concepts.

  13. Now, if only there were an opposition party… politicians elected by voters willing to standup for the rule of law and the Constitution.

    I’m not a big fan of demagoguery but it has its uses. For instance, a skillful politician could use the fact that mass importation of poor people is a direct assault on low-skill Americans of all ancestries (some of which vote 90+ percent Democrat). S/he could also point out that the rapidly increasing demands on public services like schools, welfare, and policing are hastening the day when the whole thing implodes (Cloward-Piven?).

    A bonus would be to point out the cash payments to illegals via the EITC (already rife with fraud) and that adding more Social Security beneficiaries to an already insolvent system is kind of a bad idea.

    If only there were an opposition party…

    Of course.

    You see, silly troll hmm_contrib, what we know is that you have no intention of following the law. You are an Obama puppet, and you agree that support of the Obama Party and the glorious leader Obama trumps everything else.

    Therefore, since you will not follow the law, we will not either. And what you demonstrate is your complete hypocrisy, since you and your fellow Obama supporters have made it clear that court rulings are no longer binding or restrictive on anything that people want to do.

    There is no longer any need to argue right or wrong. What you have made clear, troll hmm_contrib, is that might is what makes right and that the ends always justify the means.

    You can either back away from that, troll, or you can continue forward. There is no need for Christians or Republicans or anyone else to be decent to Obama supporters like you any more. You are violent and vile bigots who call for the murder of all Republicans, and you should be treated as criminals who have made death threats.

    Are you ready for that reality, bigot troll?
