Comment: Astonishing

(See in situ)


The Constitution is in suspended animation: arrests without due process, warrantless searches, wars without authorization. Who's going to enforce the judge's order on the Executive? The Congress has affirmed the lawlessness. How about burying the White House in lawsuits? If the government itself is in contempt, after a long series of abuses and usurpations, the right of the People to abolish it is stated explicitly in our Declaration of Independence. Their authority to arrest, search, and wage war without due process is illegitimate. If this course is not repaired, it is time to "declare the causes which impel us to separate ourselves" from the government, abolish it, and start over.
