Tyranny of One

The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States.

The Declaration of Independence, 1776

What is tyranny?

The basic description in the dictionary is an oppressive power, especially when exerted by the government, but moreover, it also means a government in which absolute power is vested in a single ruler (Merriam-Webster).

Now you might be saying right now that it is impossible to have a tyranny in the United States.  We have separation of powers – three branches co-equal, but what happens when the most visible and public of those branches, the Executive, under the President begins to dictate to the others how they will behave and act?

  1. Obama offering own immigration plan if Congress fails to act
  2. Obama to Congress in State of the Union: Act on Climate or I Will
  3. Obama to Congress: With or Without You
  4. The State of the Union, 2013
    1. “I will direct my cabinet to come up with executive actions we can take, now and in the future, to reduce pollution, prepare our communities for the consequences of climate change, and speed the transition to more sustainable sources of energy.”

Tyranny?

If Congress doesn’t act, that is Congress’ prerogative.  Just because the President doesn’t like it does not give him the right or the justly derived powers to act unilaterally.  That is textbook tyranny.

There is no week nor day nor hour when tyranny may not enter upon this country, if the people lose their roughness and spirit of defiance.

Walt Whitman

There is no crueler tyranny than that which is perpetuated under the shield of law and in the name of justice.

Charles de Montesquieu
