President Obama's legacy already very clear, as Sharon Roberts, in the Constitutionalist blog Texas for 56*, makes clear in her reaction to last night's vote for health care against the clearly-expressed will of the American people:

We have a man in the White House who does not refer to the Constitution, but constantly refers to changing America. Yes indeed he has changed America. It is clear that he is skillfully and aggressively dismantling the United States of America. Since his time in office, he has pushed the progressives in the House and they have passed legislation giving the Federal government power over automotive industries, banking, financial sectors, student loans, insurance companies, and now our healthcare. He had condoned arm-twisting, bribes, lying, and any other manner of unsavory thug tactics to get his agenda accomplished expediously. People have tried in vain to ask if he condones this type of behavior in the Congress. He adroitly avoids an answer, and fills the gap with rhetoric of how he is “saving Americans”.

At a time when our country is deeply in debt, the Progressives under his urging and leadership have continued to pass numerous bills which require more money resulting in a larger deficit. Tonight they passed a large healthcare bill as their latest gambit to completely control the American people. This will begin taxing the people immediately in a time when millions are out of work and small businesses are struggling for survival. One would seriously question their motives after this blatant gesture of ignoring the plight of the American people. These same people have their own healthplan. The Congress refused to be on the same program for Healthcare as the American People. How dare they? Clearly, they are unaware of who their employer is at this point in time. Obama cannot save them from the consequences of their actions. The American people are not stupid and see exactly what is going on in Washington.

This was exactly the situation the framers of the Constitution envisioned when they provided for impeachment for "high crimes and misdemeanors." (Article I, Sections 2-3). Unfortunately, the judges and jurors (the two Houses of Congress) are part of this conspiracy against the American people.

Ms. Roberts is writing the truth, easily verifiable from other sources; but be warned, the President's sympathizers are losing patience for people who speak the truth, if Sean Penn's remarks about Hugo Chávez (the dictator in Venezuela) are any indication**. We must speak the truth boldly!

Defending our freedom isn't racist or right-wing. It is the essence of the America we inherited from our parents, and we have an obligation before God to pass it on to our children! The alternative is to meekly lose everything we hold dear.

* The 56 in the blog's name refers to the 56 signers of the U.S. Declaration of Independence.

** I would love to know how Mr. Penn reconciles these views with the ones he expressed in September 2008, especially the line, "We have got to stop telling people not to think and speak." But now his friends are in power. I guess that makes all the difference.
