The United States of America - Banana Republic

The Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. ObamaCare) is supposed to be the law of the land but now El Presidente Obama has unilaterally changed the rules of that law on at least three different occasions since October 1, 2013 without congressional approval. Only congress can make law and create new laws to change existing ones. Welcome to the banana republic formally called The United States of America. We are officially being ruled by a dictator that tramples the Constitution.

Why aren't more American's upset over this development? Why are so many supporting this blatant disregard for constitutional law and separation of powers? Have Americans become so complacent in our affluence, so immersed in our entertainment and seeking of personal pleasure and leisure, so caught up in our own little worlds that we simply don't care and have been lulled into complete apathy? Or worse, have American's given up on the idea of preserving the very freedom and liberty that has been so hard fought for over the last 227 years?

Will my generation (the baby boomers) be the last to remember what it was like to have once been a free people, one nation, under G-d, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all? Is the Land of the Free now just a passing dream, a fading memory that will forever be gone when the last of my generation takes their final breath?

G-d Forbid.
