Letter: The Constitution no longer drives our republic

Beware the rise of exec. orders

On April 17, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., branded as “domestic terrorists” a group of ranchers and farmers assembled to show support for a neighbor whose cattle government agents were attempting to confiscate.

We are living in historic and exciting times, but there’s no cause for jubilation. The United States, as we once knew it, has been drastically altered. Congress and the Constitution no longer function as the traditional engines shaping and driving our republic. They have been supplanted by executive orders and czars.

We find ourselves locked into a system where a dictatorship prevails by means of bribery, coercion and intimidation. Should American citizens decide to push back, take note: the federal government has armed itself to the teeth with guns and ammo. We are in about the same situation as were the citizens of Germany when Adolph Hitler seized power.

Each of us can look into the future and opine on what lies ahead for America.
