    A quote: “It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.” Daniel Webster This then is the issue with our current administration. As Mr. Jefferson suggested, “bind leaders down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.” We as men of honor and keepers of our nation, “of the People” are truly the framers of our future. An election which raises question, must be resolved; a President who rules rather than leads must to controlled and a government who ignores the will of the people must to realigned. Webster, Jefferson, Adams, Lincoln and even Washington are being discarded by the current administration. The law of the land as defined in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights (specifically) must be obeyed by all levels of the people bottom to top. Social silliness which seems so much in vogue is not the way to maintain our nation. The words “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, and that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, and that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” The unspoken part of the sentence is that my rights end where they infringe the rights of others. I can do what I please, as long as I do not infringe on others. Imposing my view of social acceptable behavior, no matter how aberrant that behavior may be is infringing on the rights of others. So to your question, is Consent important. One more little quote says it all, again from the Declaration of Independence: ” That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the CONSENT of the governed,– That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on the principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to affect their Safety and Happiness.” If being ruled by the edicts of a dictator (Executive Orders are indeed edicts) is the form of government we the people chose, then we are not in Kansas anymore, Toto…no are we in the United States of America, at least not the one I gave 31 years of my life to defend.

    Ummm… Only if you’re a ‘Pub’, if you’re a ‘Dem’, no consent required from what I’m seeing.
