    you think that your subjective values are objective.  You are wrong.

    Every person who killed in a crusade believed that their religion was objectively correct.  They were killing in the name of what they considered to be objectivity.  Their concept of objectivity was no more wrong than your wrong concept of objectivity.

    What are you doing to fight the dangerous and counterproductive error of treating dirtbag terrorist criminals as though they were comic book supervillains? I can't believe we still have to argue this shit, let alone on Daily Kos.

      I tried to answer the questions you asked.

      I keep trying to explain to you that neither the proper parameters of this debate about the amdin's actions, nor my arguments, are 'ethical arguments'.  They are not based on my 'values', or yours.  They are not based on objectivism or subjectivism.  They are based on how things work under the Constitution and why the Framers set it up that way.  

      That seems entirely appropo to me as this is a US political blog, discussing a US political controversy, involving whether by these specific acts POTUS 'abused' the power given his office under the law (statue and Constitution).

      You don't want to deal with that.  Fine.

      You want to instead pretend I'm talking about the morality or wisdom of the act.  Fine.

      Whatever floats your boat.
