We are stuck with dysfunctional, even malignant, leaders for four years at a pop - no returns, no refunds. We need a way to remove them.

What if they both believe the president can arrest without charge and confine without trial any American he hates or fears?

What if they both believe in secret courts -- kept away from the public and the press -- that can take away the rights of Americans? What if they both think...
