In modern usage, the term “dictator” is generally used to describe a leader who holds and/or abuses an extraordinary amount of personal power, especially the power to make laws without effective restraint by a legislative assembly. Dictatorships are often characterized by some of the following traits: suspension of elections and of civil liberties; proclamation of a state of emergency; rule by decree; repression of political opponents without abiding by rule of law procedures; these include single-party state, and cult of personality.
Obama’s Fundamental Transformation of America is just about complete.
On March 30, 2011, Senator Charles Schumer (D–NY) with 15 cosponsors, including the Senate Majority and Republican Leaders, as well as six other Democratic Senators, six other Republican Senators, and an Independent Senator, introduced in the Senate the Presidential Appointment Efficiency and Streamlining Act of 2011 (S. 679). The bill was referred to the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs.
H o p e and C h a n g e
The bill reduces the number of presidential appointments that require the consent of the Senate and establishes within the executive branch a Working Group on Streamlining Paperwork for Executive Nominations. Individuals nominated to senior executive offices suffer slow and detailed background investigations and mounds of duplicative paperwork before a President sends their nominations to the Senate. After nomination, many nominees suffer time-consuming inaction or time-consuming and excruciating action as the Senate proceeds (or does not) with consideration of the nomination. The sponsors of S. 679 have identified a valid problem, but proposed the wrong solution. Congress should not enact S. 679.
When the delegates of the states gathered in Philadelphia in the summer of 1787 and wrote the Constitution, they distributed the powers of the federal government among two Houses of Congress, a President, and a judiciary, and required in many cases that two of them work together to exercise a particular constitutional power. That separation of powers protects the liberties of the American people by preventing any one officer of the government from aggregating too much power.
The Framers of the Constitution did not give the President the kingly power to appoint the senior officers of the government by himself. Instead, they allowed the President to name an individual for a senior office, but then required the President to obtain the Senate’s consent before appointing the individual to office. Thus, they required the cooperation of the President and the Senate to put someone in high office.

Mr. President, we are Americans and we will never surrender to your blatant over reach of power against US. We have fought on foreign shores to preserve our Freedoms and Way of Life and we will fight right here on our own lands to protect and defend those same Freedoms.
You Sir, are underestimating the Will of the American People.
This Heritage of Freedom We Pledge to Uphold
FEATURED COMMENT OF THE DAY
The American people need to be reminded that those Senators who voted to give the President additional power, are delegating their own power, and if they do not want to do the work that they are elected to do, they should find another job. The founders gave us an out whenever there was a possibility that we would elect someone who behaved the way that Barack Obama does. What they didn’t allow for was a Senate and Congress that went along with everything that he wanted. They couldn’t factor in the speed in which things can be done now, or the apathy of the public, and the complicity of the media.
