What does the "EXECUTIVE ORDER" have say about it?

That's seems to be what matters.

STATES RIGHTS/FEDERAL RIGHTS... CONSTITUTION/BILL OF RIGHTS... SUPREME COURT/CONGRESS... all of their work doesn't add up to a bucket of warm spit!

All of our sacred institutions immediately go by the wayside when an EXECUTIVE ORDER comes into play.

Go ahead... tell me where I am wrong?
