      >> (See http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article23724.htm - 9th

      >>
      >> Commander-in-Chief? Of a democracy??? Who is he to COMMAND "a

      >> this is the role to which he was elected? Already he appears to be

      >> above himself and is unconsciously putting his delusions of imperial

      >> ruler, not their servant. In his eyes it appears that he is the people's
      >> boss. But in a democracy, the people are their own boss. In a
      >> democratic
      >> republic the people are not there to take commands from their President.
      >> The President is there to take the people's commands and carry them out.
      >> If
      >> the Republic still exists then Obama has got the wrong end of the stick
