    yeah i agree.

    while the idea of separation of powers is a fundamental part of our republic, these folks seem confused about what it means.

    while you can make an argument that you don't necessarily have to do what another branch tells you* there's no way in an enlightened society in the information age that separation of powers can be construed to mean that you can actively conceal your actions from other branches, or from the people. such a claim can only mean that you are actively engaged in criminal enterprises.

    * however this can in no way be construed to mean that any agent of the state can ever engage in illegal behavior, ever. rule of law, remember? hallmark of the enlightenment, proof that we are not medievals, etc.

    l'audace! l'audace! toujours l'audace!
