"With respect to the two words 'general welfare,' I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators." --James Madison

"If you compare the vision of our nation's founders to the behavior of today's Congress, White House and U.S. Supreme Court, you would have to conclude that there is no longer rule of law where there is a set of general rules applicable to all persons. Today, we are commanded by legislative thugs who, with Supreme Court sanction, issue orders commanding particular people to do particular things. Most Americans neither understand nor appreciate the spirit and letter of the Constitution and accept Congress' arbitrary orders and privileges based upon status." --economist Walter E. Williams

"Barely two months into his Presidency, Obama is wreaking havoc, crippling the nation, oblivious to consequences and monumentally arrogant, believing the timbre of his voice and the manipulation of the media will win public confidence until the socialist utopia he believes in comes to fruition. Who knows how bad it will be in a year, let alone four?" --columnist Lance Fairchok

"Wall Street -- including the banking sector -- is burning itself down. The fire is fueled by panic -- the final stage in a decline of confidence -- and can only be put out by measures that restore confidence. ... But President Obama -- having first claimed that only government can solve the economic problems -- is failing to provide any solutions Wall Street can believe in." --Human Events editor Jed Babbin

"Obama is a great pretender. He repeatedly says he's doing things that he isn't, trusting his powerful rhetoric to obscure the difference." --Washington Post editor Robert Samuelson

"You can't expect people to unite behind you if you're trying to jam a whole bunch of things down their throat" --investor and Obama supporter Warren Buffett

Maybe Sacha Baron Cohen was seeing into the future, even if it was a little off back then with keep it real, more like 1 word, CHANGE. I wonder if this will be the failsafe excuse at the end of his term predicted in this video, that is if he ever ends his term after what he recently signed.

This is meant to be a joke, just like the current regime sorry I mean administration, no offence intended to anyone etc.

Good points OP in seriousness.
