Eclectic Floridian: It's Legal Because "I Said So!"

It's Legal Because "I Said So!"

So far, the only justification of Domestic Spying that I've heard is, "Because I said so."

That's just not good enough. Even members of the legislature who have supposedly agreed to it, have expressed that they didn't realize that's what was being discussed.

The important questions are not:
  • Is it needed?
  • Is it important?
  • Isn't it the patriotic thing to do?
  • Wasn't it disclosed to Congress?
  • Aren't we in a war?
The only important questions are:
  • Is it authorized by our Constitution?
  • Should the president abide by the Constitution whether or not it is convenient for him?
  • If changes are necessary to allow Domestic Spying, shouldn't a Constitutional Amendment be required?
  • Should an Attorney General appointed by a President who appears to be creating Constitutional Amendments from thin air, be allowed to interpret the Constitution?
Ladies and Gentlemen, important precedents are being set here. Speak up or get what you don't deserve!
