Evidence is unmistakable and incontrovertible: President Obama is intentionally staging a government shutdown as a political ploy to discredit Republicans in 2014 elections. Will it work?
Whether it works or not is a function of how many Democrat lawmakers will be willing accomplices to his grand scheme.
The Law of the Land
It’s helpful to review the Constitution when judging actions by federal government. What does it say?
There is a process, a very concise and easily understood process prescribed in Article 1, Section 7. To wit:
All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other Bills.
Every Bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall, before it become a Law, be presented to the President of the United States: If he approve he shall sign it, but if not he shall return it, with his Objections to that House in which it shall have originated, who shall enter the Objections at large on their Journal, and proceed to reconsider it. If after such Reconsideration two thirds of that House shall agree to pass the Bill, it shall be sent, together with the Objections, to the other House, by which it shall likewise be reconsidered, and if approved by two thirds of that House, it shall become a Law.
But in all such Cases the Votes of both Houses shall be determined by yeas and Nays, and the Names of the Persons voting for and against the Bill shall be entered on the Journal of each House respectively. If any Bill shall not be returned by the President within ten Days (Sundays excepted) after it shall have been presented to him, the Same shall be a Law, in like Manner as if he had signed it, unless the Congress by their Adjournment prevent its Return, in which Case it shall not be a Law.
Every Order, Resolution, or Vote to which the Concurrence of the Senate and House of Representatives may be necessary (except on a question of Adjournment) shall be presented to the President of the United States; and before the Same shall take Effect, shall be approved by him, or being disapproved by him, shall be repassed by two thirds of the Senate and House of Representatives, according to the Rules and Limitations prescribed in the Case of a Bill.

This administration has resisted the above constitutional process by which administrations have budgeted since the beginning of this country. President Obama is a renegade. He, empowered by his Senate Democrat majority, has operated this country all but his first year WITH NO BUDGET AT ALL.
If there is a government shutdown, responsibility for all consequences rests solely with the Democrat party and their renegade leader, Barack Hussein Obama.
Contact your Congressional Delegation and tell them to perform their budgetary duty according to the Constitution and to resist yielding to the scheme of tyrant Obama.
President Obama behaves like a renegade, refusing to follow the Constitution, as prescribed in Article 1, Section 7.
Do not yield to this tyrant president. Follow constitutionally-prescribed due process and demand President Obama likewise follow due process.
