executive orders

g. wasington when one of sons of liberty said,
" eloquence and reason is not government, it is power"
Federalist papers 28,29 and 46 discuss arms and the place of the citizen
and state on issue of power...2nd amendment was clearly addressing these things by ensuring the government would have some basis to exert power apart from the bare means allowed them by the government.

now, our president asserts his executive authority to by-pass congress...to extert his personal will and view who needs congress? those ugly democratic
methods just interfere with right governance and the utopian view of the power elite anyway....we can all be happy new yorks and chicagos if we can just get by congress and the deoomcratic process by assertion of executive power.

got to ask. isn't this what washing, the federalistis and the constitutionalists saw coming??? kill 2nd amendment,, remove firearms from overned and whether you love lots of government or not you may have to consider that there has been a transfer of power, one our founders saw comiong and tried to protect us from. anohter quote that comes to mind..is for evil to prevail all that is required is that good men do nothing.
