Old Captain America has always been a big fan of democracy.
HAVE you noticed?
-----the Current Occupant Mr. Obama has issued HUNDREDS of executive orders. His predecessors usually issued only a handful.
----the president has arrogated to himself the drone-kill power.
----also, this office has spied on innocent American citizens like you.
—AND, the current Department of Justice decides for itself which valid and lawfully passed laws it wishes to enforce. This obviates the work of our representatives. (Now, you may agree that some of these laws are wrong, etc., but the proper democratic channel of change is the legislative forum. . . not a Monday morning bureaucratic decision made by a handful of people).
–this trend of “pick which laws you don’t want to enforce” has spread to the states.
Friends, I would have thought that liberals would howl, howl, howl over this anti-democratic and arrogant power-snatch.
They shut up, the media, too, since we live in a 24/7 partisan world. . . and “their side” is making gains with this.
Nice. So much for democracy in America.
