#3 Boaz, that's the exact attitude that is tearing our country apart. The President, whoever he/she might be has a #1 priority to protect this Federal Republic w/strong Democratic ways by any means necessary. That's what Lincoln faced. He had to keep the US together as a Federal Republic at all costs. Eight hundred thousand to one million people were killed because of this Constitutional edict. A President has no choice. If states start making waves about seceding from the US, expect a can of whoop-ass to be opened this country hasn't seen in 160 years.
And what is this thing about "Liberals?" I've read enough of far-right Republican posts to know exactly what their problem is. It's unsolvable. It's going to take generations to weed the problem out. The Statue of Liberty says: "Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore." First it was only white Northern Europeans, then the Irish, then the Italians and Greeks, then the Eastern Europeans. Then, because of war, we took in Koreans, Vietnamese, Filipinos, and of course the Chinese and Japanese were allowed to come over to build the railroads. Whether any of us likes it or not, the United States is becoming a melting pot of people from all over the world. God help us if we ever elect a true Fascist as President along the likes of Mussolini or Hitler. That's what it sounds like you want. No debates, no committees, no trying t0 figure out the potential "ifs" in a piece of legislation. Just a dictatorial strong man. The 5 forms of government according to Socrates were in order of best to worst were: Aristocracy, Military Honor, Oligarchy/Plutocracy, Democracy, and Anarchy. He went on to say that all countries cycle through these five forms of government, usually generation after generation. We're primed and ready for Anarchy if we don't take care to step away from that ledge.
I've typed too much again. But I'm trying to learn to have a discussion without malice and simply use common sense and patience. So forgive me for another TL/DR post.
