    I very very sincerely hope it does not come to that, but I will admit I'm beginning to worry.
    Jumping to conclusions already? Your experience in constitutional law is what?

    I'd prefer to avoid using legislation, let alone the dubious mechanism of Executive Orders, to make any major changes in our laws and traditions during a time of mass hysteria.

    Unfortunately a majority of the country disagrees with you. Otherwise Obama would not have been reelected.

    My training in Constitutional law was quite modest... we had a class on it at the Police Academy. What was yours?

    Interesting, so not only are you jumping to conclusions, you are unqualified to judge based on the law itself. Well done!

    I guess those of the Founders who were not lawyers were unqualified to judge when their rights were being trampled too, huh?




    You didn't answer my question.

    I'd also hesitate to label the current political and social climate as "mass hysteria."

    Nice dodge, but no cigar. The founders committed treason against Britain, according to the existing laws in place at the time.


    You still haven't answered my question. I admitted honestly that my formal training in Constitutional law was limited to one class. What was yours?
