WASHINGTON, Jan. 1 - President Bush continued on Sunday to defend both the legality and the necessity of the National Security Agency's domestic eavesdropping program, and he denied that he misled the public last year when he insisted that any government wiretap required a court order (New York Times).
How do you defend the indefensible? How do you violate the Constitution of the United States of America:
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
When the law and the constitution are clear. The president have violated his oath of office and has violated the law. I am sorry he didn't get a blow job, but this is something more important.
We are a nation of laws, not people. We are ruled by laws, not people. This president is a servant of the law. He does not have the imperial power to declare his whims to be law.
Our system of government is very simple. If you you don't like a law, work to change it. If you think the president should have more power, you must ammend the constitution to give him that power. No law or president can be allowed to violate the constitution.
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
The Congress must be held accountable at the polls from violating their obligation to oversee the actions of the executive, and the president must be impeached for violating his oath, the constitution, and the law.
