The administration’s outrageous response to the most serious Constitutional question of all — when a government can kill its own citizens — is clear evidence of an executive branch out of control.

 

Many of the drafters of the Constitution envisioned the presidency as an office with very limited powers, but even the most dedicated proponents of a strong presidency at the time would be shocked to see the concentration of power in the modern presidency.

 

 

 

 

Today the presidency is viewed as the center of the federal government, with each successive administration expanding the power of the executive at the expense of Congress and the people.

Ironically, some of the worst offenders are those who campaigned promising to reverse the power grabs of their predecessors. For example, candidate George W. Bush campaigned on a “humble foreign policy,” but as president he attacked Iraq based on his own administration’s lies and claimed the right to indefinitely detain anyone he deemed an “enemy combatant.”

 

In 2008 Barack Obama claimed he would reverse the previous administration’s constitutional abuses. However, instead of doing so, he has furthered them, drawing up“kill lists” with John Brennan, now the head of the Central Intelligence Agency, using drone strikes against American citizens not engaged in combat against the United States and killing innocent people in countries that we are not engaged in war with, such as Yemen.

Obama’s executive orders are numerous and far reaching as well, including the notable ones he issued in January infringing upon the Second Amendment and personal privacy. This is nothing more than an attempt to sidestep Congress which is the legislating body.
