    Re: Activists urge Obama to go rogue, sidestep Congress

    Given the numerous ways in which Obama has already done this, I wonder what the collective reaction from the Left will be when the next Republican President follows his precedent?

    Imagine a world in which President Ryan simply informs the IRS to use "prosecutorial discretion" with capital gains taxes, and then informs the country that they need not be paid. Their heads would split.

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
