America has reached a crossroads: are we a nation of laws or not? Obama has assumed dictatorial powers by unilaterally declaring health care legislation will be postponed by one year. Without any legal backing by the legislative branch. George Zimmerman was acquitted based on the facts presented at the trial. But now the looters want their pound of flesh regardless of the law.
A republic is based on the rule of law. Once this is lost, we devolve into tyranny. What are the consequences of a usurpation of our laws and Constitution by the federal government?
We are about to find out.
More than 380,000 people have signed a petition created after a jury found George Zimmerman not-guilty in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin Saturday, calling for the U.S. Department of Justice to launch a civil rights investigation.
“A jury has acquitted George Zimmerman, but we are not done demanding justice for Trayvon Martin. Sign our petition to the Department of Justice today,” a note accompanying the petition on Moveon.org read.
In barely 12 hours, the petition has garnered 250,000 signatures on the NAACP site, and the petition by MoveOn.org drew 140,000.
