President Barack Obama’s style of government is not the style our forefathers preferred and laid out for us in the Constitution. There was a built-in system of checks and balances provided by the legislative, executive and judicial branches.

Obama has a style of government that is full of czars. They are appointed by him, paid by Americans and answer only to the president. No where in the Constitution is there a provision for a czardom. I see Obama’s czars as a government within a government outside the Constitution and used as an "illicit organization."

Obama has a pyramid established with him as the Don. Next come his Cabinet members, appointed by him but approved by Congress. Now come the czars, the soldiers appointed by the Don and responsible only to him. They are given vast powers, but circumvent the Congress and are free to do as they please, at the whim of the Don.

At last count there were 32 czars and each czar has a staff, a hefty salary, further expanding the government, our debt and you get the point. Is this what Obama meant with providing jobs?

Manufacturing car czar Ron Bloom: "We kind of agree with Mao that political power comes largely from the barrel of a gun. And we get it that if you want a friend, get a dog."

Health care advisor Ezekiel Emanuel is a proponent of "The Complete Lives System" which puts values on lives based mostly on age.

Science czar John Holdren: Yeah, Hugo Chavez is on the right track.

I see his actions as a great power grab away from and circumventing the republic of America and our Constitution to establish a socialist country. To those who are still mesmerized by the rhetoric of the Messiah and believe he can do no wrong, I will not say, "I told you so." Let me say, "You ain’t seen nothing yet."
