One of my pet peeves (I have many, take your pick) is the misconception that the Constitution and Bill of rights grant the citizens of the United States general freedom and liberty. What those documents really do is limit an over zealous government. They put limits on what the government can do. I think that's what is so troubling about the constitutional disregard that is rampant today. The use of the Executive Order was originally intended as a means to speedy reaction to crisis when the house and senate could not be rapidly called into session. We have allowed the presidents to manipulate this tool and it has not been in our best interests. How do we stop it? How do you stop a speeding train with mere muscle and bone?
