It’s been a long five years for the Constitution, the rule of law and the American people. President Barack Obama has time and again imposed his radical agenda via regulatory fiat. The People’s Congress has been with increasing frequency cut entirely out of the governing process.
Chaos has reigned. The President’s rule-by-whim has created endless uncertainty – which has bred economic stagnation. Money, time and opportunity – wasted and lost.
In the midst of this mess comes a moment of Zen – the D.C. Circuit Court has struck down the Administration’s unilateral Network Neutrality imposition. Which was a gi-normous, uncertainty-inducing, investment-dampening power grab ‘solution’ running around vainly in search of a non-existent problem.
Let’s hope the Administration takes this for the lesson it is – that it cannot create jurisdiction and law out of whole cloth. That it needs to leave the legislating to the Legislative Branch.
