Very short article but dead on when it comes to understanding that you may not be happy after getting what you wish for… all people are flawed and putting a limit on the power of those who wish to rule is the smartest thing going.
Another example. During the initial reaction to 9/11, there were many who called for then President Bush to have increased powers so he could “take care of business”. Now we have President Obama. How many of those people would be happy if President Obama had those same greatly expanded powers to take care of business?
Similarly, there are people that bemoan the “party of no” stopping Obama from getting really good things accomplished. Say he was granted those powers and did as he may. The mood of the electorate swings. In a shock to many, Sarah Palin is swept into office in 2012. To those that would support expanding Obama’s powers…how to do you feel about President Palin ruling without checks and balances?
