The president doesn't make laws, Congress does. Even if he writes the template, Congress has to authorize it. Nixon lied and rammed the CSA through Congress but it was their stamp of approval that enacted it. Same reason a president can't overturn Congressional decisions. Also why the Supreme Court has become a partisan legislator deciding cases to benefit international interests over that of Americans. Why would anyone want a straight man to plan the wedding of a gay couple? When most straight couples prefer Gays to plan their wedding? If memory serves the first Continental Congress had no provisions for a president. It was too much of a reminder of a Monarchy. No American Kings! The only reason they implemented a President was to expedite mustering an army in case of attack. They felt Congress would deliberate too long and the country would suffer. The Commerce Clause gave the President power that was exclusively meant for states. The Patriot Ax, Higher Education Ax revision and Homeyland Insurance also expand the powers of the President, or should I say spokesperson for the Neocons New Weird Odor. So while the President can influence legislation and votes. It's our choice to make it happen. Or our choice to elect representatives serving our interest over international banksters and corporations.
The Nation of Apathetic Puppets
It's getting easier to steal elections due to the apathy of the voters. Not including the diebold, hanging chads or voter ID scams to disenfranchise citizens votes. We the people bring it on ourselves. Half of the population can't register. Half who can, choose not to. Half of that choose not to cast a vote. The half remaining that does vote is split down the middle. So in essence 1/16 of the population actually decides between dumb and dumber. If those not voting decided to get off of their lazy asses it's anyones game, including Ron Paul or Gary Johnson. Besides I have found democrats rally against republican fascism better than republicans do against democratic fascism. Neocon fascists gather support from republican lapdogs while democratic protesters tend to stay at home when its a democrat oppressing them. Like Klintoon did to the AIDs patients wasting away using Ganja. Bush 1 had headlines about one million homeless. Klintoon had no such headlines and doubled the homeless population. Busted more for simple possession than nixon, daddybush and rayguns combined. Inhaling or not. So kill your Cable's alphabet channels and Vote!
