The citizens’ mandate to stop Obama’s fundamental transformation of America


By Rick Manning

“The voters demanded that Congress stop this President’s fundamental transformation of America using every power at their disposal, ending the Executive Branch abuses against both the citizenry, and restoring Constitutional balance of power and the foundational concept that individual rights are derived from God, not government.”

That is the preamble to a just-released “Citizens’ Mandate” signed by more than 50 conservative leaders, including this author.

It is a strong reminder to the Republicans who run the 114th Congress that they were elected to do more than go along to get along with President Obama under the guise of “governing.” The “Citizen’s Mandate” calls on this Congress to “use every power at its disposal” to stand up for limited government principles and a restoration of Constitutional government.

America did not vote for this Congress to enable Obama to accomplish his agenda; they elected this Congress to stop it, and for anyone in Washington to pretend otherwise is either disingenuous or outright delusional.

That is what the 2014 election was about, and it is what the 114th Congress will be judged on.

Obama will be striving to cement his legacy of transformation, and this Congress will either be complicit in his plan or they will follow the citizens’ mandate of November 2014 and they will stop him.
