  •  frankly, if he has to give up the Constitution (7+ / 0-)

    to win the presidency, then the presidency is not worth that much.

    No good can come of a president who compromises the fundamental principles of our country. Even with the best of intentions, he will inevitably lead us down the path towards tyranny.

    •  Exactly the point. (3+ / 0-)

      The idea we're supposed to trust someone who will not speak up to defend our Constitutional rights, and expect him to miraculously become corageious and just when he steps into the Oval Office and takes POWER . . .is  absurd.

      Aboslute power corrupts absolutely . . . and that is why we must not give in to the lie of the Unitary Executive.

      Parliament in 1649 settled that argument when they chopped of Charles I's head.  The Congress we have now would have rolled over and kissed the King's ass.
