Barack Obama, our next President

You do know that Lincoln invited Carl Marks to the US. But Marks could not leave England at that time so he sent a representative in his place. Lincoln studied Carl Marks philosophes.
It's Karl, btw, and have you studied him? Do you have any inkling of what you are talking about?

Banning Offshore Drilling
In 1969 a Unocal oil rig off the coast of Santa Barbara, California began leaking oil. The extent of the leak, damage to wildlife, and the shoreline caused considerable outrage. The state of California banned offshore drilling shortly after the leak. In 1980, Congress banned offshore drilling in most federally controlled waters. President George H.W. Bush reluctantly banned off shore drilling in 1990 for the western states, Alaska, and the North Atlantic.
Lifting that ban has been a top priority for oil companies in the United States. In 2006, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to lift the ban on offshore drilling for 85% of the nation’s shoreline. The Senate failed to cooperate. Just before leaving office, President George W. Bush lifted the executive order banning offshore drilling and challenged Congress to complete the process with legislation. No action was taken.
It took a Democratic President to change the decade’s long policy. On March 31, President Obama lifted the ban on offshore drilling covering 85% of the nation’s shoreline. The Gulf of Mexico coastline, location of the BP catastrophe, had not been included in the original ban.

The state has the right5 to regulate it's own waters.
The waters beyond the state's boundaries the federal government has the right to regulate.
There are multiple laws passed by Congress that dictate how these regulations will be applied.
One such law is the EPA guidelines.
Another such law gives the Exeucitve Branch of government the authority to issue offshore leases in waters beyond the state waters boundary.
By law passed by Congress, the Chief Executive has the authority to regulate lease sales and conditions in federal waters.
The Chief Executive also has the authority to regulate lease sales and conditions on federal lands - which is why exploration of federal lands has dropped to just about zero since Obama took office.(He's saving that oil so he can give it to China, idiot.)

Now, back to the point, dufus.

The president does not have the authority to issue edicts to the population. The president has no authority outside the Executive Branch of government. Thus, no executive order can have authority outside the Executive Branch of government.
The only valid commands to the population must come in the form of a law passed by Congress and enacted in accordance with the Constitution.
Thus, any executive order from Obama giving any command to anyone or anything outside the Executive Branch of government isn't worth the paper it is written on.

If Obama had ever read the Constitution at least once in his life, he'd know that.

6. Tearing von Mises to pieces. Right-wing leaders -- as well as Wall Street bankers, industrial polluters, processed-food producers, and any number of one-percenters -- have their resentful followers believing that there’s no such thing as a good government regulation. Much of their reasoning is found in what is known as the Austrian school of economics, notably in the work of Ludwig von Mises and Frederick Hayek. With a single sentence, Obama dismissed that entire branch of quackonomics with the back of his hand:

Together, we discovered that a free market only thrives when there are rules to ensure competition and fair play.

(In case this didn't post the first time...)
Well, that Nixon doesn't align very well with this Nixon.
In 1952 and 1956, a majority of blacks backed the Republican Party. After the landmark 1954 decision in Brown v. Board of Education was handed down, Eisenhower ordered desegregation of the Washington DC public schools. In 1957 and 1959, Eisenhower proposed strong civil rights bills to enforce the long-neglected 15th Amendment and give Southern blacks the right to vote. Senate Southern Democrats filibustered the bills. When the Southerners demanded that violators of the new civil rights bill have the right to jury trials (before all-white Southern juries), Democratic senator John F. Kennedy voted with the South, while Republican vice president Richard Nixon broke a tie in the Senate to kill the Southern amendment.
The Nixon years witnessed the first large-scale integration of public schools in the South. Nixon sought a middle way between the segregationist Wallace and liberal Democrats whose support of integration was alienating some Southern whites. By September 1970, less than ten percent of black children were attending segregated schools. By 1971, however, tensions over desegregation surfaced with protests over the busing of children to schools outside their neighborhood to achieve racial balance. Nixon opposed busing personally but enforced court orders requiring its use.
In addition to desegregating public schools, Nixon implemented the Philadelphia Plan in 1970 — the first significant federal affirmative action program. He also endorsed the Equal Rights Amendment after it passed both houses of Congress in 1972 and went to the states for ratification. Nixon also appointed more women to administration positions than Lyndon Johnson had.
What you accuse Nixon and, by mere association, all Republicans of doing in the South doesn't add up to the overall picture.
Some sources referred to the "Southern Strategy" as Republicans using "wedge issues" such as "family values and protection of gun ownership rights" to gain the Southern vote.
Wow...family values is a "wedge issue"?
Our journey is not complete until our wives, our mothers, and daughters can earn a living equal to their efforts.

Our journey is not complete until no citizen is forced to wait for hours to exercise the right to vote.

How can you be in such denial? Why are all the southern states red now?

Those are rhetorical questions since this has been shown to you many many times, you just refuse to accept that your party actively sought to bring southern racists rebelling against the Democratic Party into the Republican Party and that's where they've stayed until today and that's why the southern states are red.

The EPA was proposed by President Richard Nixon and began operation on December 2, 1970, after Nixon signed an executive order.

Where was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American security detatchment in Benghazi while the real-time video was being watched in the White House?
And;
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
Simple questions. Simple answers. A simple location is required to answer the first question, and a simple source of money is required to answer the second question.
Got an answer for us, dupe?
Evidently, from one of your previous posts, Obama is selling Texas to China. Or was it NJ?

Oh wait, it was that Obama coin with his picture.

No wait it was confiscating all the guns & selling then to the Mexican drug lords.
