1. The ultimate responsibility lies with Obama; the Secretary of State serves at the pleasure of the President. He is responsible; authority can be delegated, responsibility can not. 2. Huh? 3. And so senators are responsible for all aspects of federal governance in their states? That's an interesting take. Again, the responsibility lies with the President. 4. Nowhere in any military code of honor is a requirement to applaud the President, and that you would believe so tells me that you honestly have no idea about military service.

Two problems: First, define "groceries." Second, to think that the IRS will become a tax auditing agency when they will be sending checks to all the "poor people" I think is to ignore the fact that you are still giving people a government check.

OK, so we have concluded that voter impersonation isn't a problem, and I have yet to hear anyone proposing voter ID to combat impersonation. What we need to get at is the problem of people who vote who are not eligible to do so.

I'm embarrassed that you are unable to compare Dr Paul's positions from his last Presidential run with the powers granted to the President in the Constitution. Once you do that, you would recognize that he is not a serious Constitiutionalist, and as much as a problem as the incumbent.

freedomist: The fact that Dr Paul did not get more support in the GOP may point to the fact that of the 15 positions I saw he supported in his last Presidential run, 13 of them required him to assume or arrogate to the Presidency powers not provided by the Constitution. If one is going to claim to follow the Constitution, one must follow the Constitution.

As long as you never ever compare his sound bites to his positions from his most recent Presidential run....
While ending a sentence in a preposition is bad Latin, English at root is not derived from Latin. I like Winston Churchill's response on being chided about ending a sentence in a preposition: "This is nonsense, up with which we shall not put."
Of course, if one compares the positions that Ron Paul took about how he would act as President to the enumerated powers of that office, you realize that the vast majority of his positions would have required that he arrogate powers not granted by the Constitution to the President. This makes his claims of following the Founding Fathers open to question at best.
Righto! And when you become a target because the President of the United States decides you are a target, you are a target for your own reason, not because in the opinion of the President, you need to be targeted.
