I agree. Would we mind if Reagan or Bush had those powers...not that any president doesn’t already have that power.
I think all leaders have that sort of power written somewhere and interpreted as conditions require. It’s just not very realistic to advertise this.
How many people just here on FR have stated that so&so should just be brought out back and shot? Pre-emptivation is alive, well and acceptable to many folk.
Anyone can do anything. Sometimes there are consequences.
