Obama: 59,971, 178
Romney: 57,304, 430
We now live in a divided nation. There is NO MANDATE….only more gridlock and congressional dysfunction and administrative dysfunction for which we can look forward into the next 4 years.
My first reaction: I do not want to live in this divided nation any longer.
I spent time exloring some concepts which we may see emerge.
If you wish to google these:
“Fiat Government by Executive Orders”
“The Obama you voted for is not running the country”(posted Sept 12, 2012)
“”The Presidential Fiat: a disturbing trend”
“Overreach: Obamacare vs the Constitution”
by Charles Krauthammer
‘Obama’s Law: waivers, executive orders and presidential fiat”
None of these are today’s articles; all were written in the recent past.
So far Barack Obama has issued 141 executive orders in his first term.
You can see a list of them too if you google “Obama’s executive orders”.
With the Congress as divided as it was in the past years, what will we see when the House and the Senate go into Gridlock again?
Governmnent by Fiat? Government by executive order? We could be veering toward a virtual dicatatorship if such a thing occurs as time passes.
It bodes badly for our nation.
This election was much too close. We are a truly divided nation nearly 50-50.
It is a scenario for destruction or a scenario for so- far- unseen cooperation between goverment branches.
Which way we go determines whether we survive as a free people and a free country.
I have many other questions about the results of the election but I cannot ask them today.
