President to Decide on Unconstitutional Earmarks

Tomorrow, the President will decide whether he should issue an executive order telling government agencies to ignore the earmarks included in the omnibus spending bill by the Democrats that never came to a vote in Congress.

Funny, I thought that Congress would have to vote on such things. Perhaps Article I, Section 7 of the Constitution might say something to that consequence.

If the President issues the executive order, he will be enforcing the legislative process the Constitution says we must follow. If the President does not issue the executive order, he will be rewarding Congress for ignoring the Constitution.

RedState is coordinating an effort to let President Bush know how you feel about what amounts to a referendum on the rule of law. They ask that you either call the President at 202-456-1111 or email him at Tell him to strike the unconstitutional earmarks in the spending bill and uphold the rule of law in this country.

MORE: As an aside - RedState is raising funds to create a better site, capable of organizing actual conservatives nationally. RedState is the real deal, and we would all be better if their plan comes to fruition. Of course, the Left is trying to destroy RedState by making their plans financially unfeasible. That alone should tell you that this is a worthy cause...
