The Imperial GOP

For those of you on the Left who aren’t objecting to (or who favor) Obama’s immigration overreach, I hope you realize that you won’t have any moral authority to respond if in the future if a Republican President did the following:

1.  Suspended all OSHA inspections of factories because of the “more important need to enable employers to focus on job creation instead of costly compliance.  It’s the right thing to do.”

2.  Suspended all EPA inspections of power plants for emissions violations because of “grave concerns over the unsettled nature of the science of climate change”.  “We need to do the right thing, but we have to move with all due care in order to avoid mistakes on such an important issue.”

3.  Approved all pending oil and gas permit requests without further review because of the “strategic and economic urgency to secure our energy independence.  It’s the right thing to do.”

4.  Stopped all federal funding of alternative fuel research and production because “we need to do a full cost benefit analysis before committing this great nation to funding what may be wasteful spending.  It’s the right thing to do.”

5.  Required new, time-consuming and detailed review of all Justice Department enforcement actions related to discriminatory actions by employers, individuals or states because of “concern that Justice Department actions need to properly ensure that adequate protections are provided for the most vulnerable among us.  It’s the right thing to do.”

6.  Stopped indefinitely all IRS audits in order to develop and implement new training and processes for the conduct of audits because of “the litany of complaints against overzealous agents”.  “It’s the right thing to do.”

7.  Ordered that all EPA reviews of environmental impact statements can take no longer than two months because of “the importance to support job-creating new projects for all Americans”.  “It’s the right thing to do.”  No, better than that- two weeks.  Ah heck- why not two hours?

8.  Announced plans to construct improved border security measures, including fencing and electronic surveillance, to be implemented immediately without delay for any environmental or other considerations.  Funding would be taken from the budget of the Labor Department.  “I’m forced to take this action because of instructions in legislation from Congress to secure our borders.  It’s the right thing to do.”

9.  Announced the end of all project labor agreements for federal construction projects because of the “need to minimize costs and time for completion of our major national priorities.  It’s the right thing to do.”

10.  Required that all labor unions performing work for the United States government provide monthly reporting of all political spending, and also all contacts with any elected official.  It’s the right thing to do.”

11.  And last but not least, stopped any and all spending for anything related to Obamacare, pending a “full review of the alternatives to a centralized control over such an important aspect of everyone’s life.  The review would take into account full cost benefit analysis, review of alternative technologies, comparative analysis of health care solutions of other countries, and of course, for the first time, a full reading of the Obamacare legislation.  The review would take about 100 years, because it’s all so complicated.  It’s the right thing to do.”
