Duty to spend blood and treasure

And to protect!  Especially.

Which is why we have sent 100 American combat troops to operate on the ground in the religious/civil war cluster f*** that is going on in Uganda.  Putting the lives of young American mostly conservative men at high risk for self defense of America…..

No.  For common welfare…..

No.  For … well for something or other.  Article something, section one, paragraph something of the Constitution that says that the president gets to do whatever the bloody hell he wants.  At least, it ought to be in the Constitution.  Because that’s what governments and presidents like and want and need to do.  Which is why we even have a Constitution.

So surely the founder-folks that were putting it together would have realized that and put something in there specifying about that need and want.  Delegating specific powers to the federal government and to cover just such a circumstance as this.  So that the president wouldn’t get in trouble and have to deal with the rabble calling for his impeachment for usurping the powers that belong to the people and waging wars willy-nilly.  Really helps if you can also have a Congress that would either rubberstamp everything or be so busy pandering for votes that they don’t even raise a whisper of dissent.

    Impeachment isn’t doable. Neither principle nor the rule of law are applicable.
