QUOTE: Ninety-five years and a day after the infamous Villa raid, another group of armed men crept into Columbus [New Mexico]....They led away in handcuffs Columbus’s mayor, police chief, village trustee and numerous others accused of smuggling guns, ammunition and body armor across the border to Mexican outlaws.
New York Times Oct 29, 2008 Most Presidents Ignore the Constitution: The government we have today is something the Founders could never have imagined.
QUOTE: It is clear that the Framers wrote a Constitution as a result of which contracts would be enforced, risk would be real, choices would be free and have consequences, and private property would be sacrosanct. The $700 billion bailout of large banks that Congress recently enacted runs afoul of virtually all these constitutional principles.
Wall Street Journal, The (WSJ) Dec 21, 2005 Clash Is Latest Chapter in Bush Effort to Widen Executive Power
QUOTE: From shielding energy policy deliberations to setting up military tribunals without court involvement, Bush, with Cheney's encouragement, has taken what scholars call a more expansive view of his role than any commander in chief in decades.

Washington Post Dec 18, 2005 Pushing the Limits Of Wartime Powers
QUOTE: In his four-year campaign against al Qaeda, President Bush has turned the U.S. national security apparatus inward to secretly collect information on American citizens on a scale unmatched since the intelligence reforms of the 1970s....the third time in as many months that the White House has been obliged to defend a departure from previous restraints on domestic surveillance. In each case, the Bush administration concealed the program's dimensions or existence from the public and from most members of Congress.
Washington Post Oct 03, 2001 Democracy in Wartime
QUOTE: Yet Congress has shown alarming signs of abdicating its constitutional role...giving President George W. Bush a blank check -- which is more than Congress gave Franklin D. Roosevelt 60 years ago.
