I have no problem if drones are used to find a missing child or adult, but I have a big problem if they are used to spy on people for using fertilizer in their garden, or what they do in their bedroom

The problem is, and the Judge rightly points it out, these “policies” are sprung from the mind of the President, and not coming from Congress, where they should.

Here is the fundamental problem for all who vote and take it too lightly. If the President can order the military to spy on child molesters, kidnappers and other criminals, where is the line drawn? Can he later add to the list other undesirables, scofflaws and malcontents? Do these people realize, when they vote as if it’s American Idol, how much power over THEMSELVES they give him?

Congress is the problem here. It is abdication of their duty. We need to elect a Congress that is responsible and a true guardian of our liberties.

I’m afraid for us. I was an Oathtaker, and now I am an Oathkeeper of the US Constitution. Lately, however, I’ve been studying the words of the anti-Federalists and their fear of the power of the Presidency, I’m seeing, was well justified. For that matter, they also were fearful of a too powerful Congress. I’m not saying the Constituion is flawed, but too much power is in the hands of flawed men.
