Mr. Blackwell, Disobeying the highest law of the land is not a conservative principle. Do not think for a minute that Abraham Lincoln fought the war of aggression to free the slaves per se. The U.S. Constitution is the last defense against a tyrannical federal government against unalienable rights. Lincoln was the worst ever offender of those rights. Worse than king George.

You cited the very worst examples of presidents who violated the Constitution. Will you now side with 0bama?
