The government already does this. If someone is convicted in tax court and is sentenced to prison... what do you think would happen if they refused to report to jail and resisted arrest?
Okay... tell the truth. You are really a conservative satirically pretending to be a stereotypical leftist, correct?

What Would Reagan Do?

I don't think Reagan was perfect. I'm merely saying that had the Cold War continued unabated, we might not even be around to be concerned with the issues of the present day, all of which are lesser evils than the complete destruction of the world. Statistically, even if there had been no intention by either party to start WWIII, an accident was bound to happen eventually. Reagan achieved his four-word strategy. Damn few presidents can say the same.

An ally without whose assistance many more allies and Jews would likely have died while trying to defeat Hitler? Did you forget about Stalin, Corbett?
How's this for a solution to DOJs of the future being true watchdogs for us citizens? How about the 2nd place finisher in a presidential election gets to select the Attorney General? (I'm only half-joking!)
On balance, I agree with you about Lieberman, although he lost his scruples for a while during the 2000 Florida recount fiasco when he joined other Dems in trying to deny overseas military personnel the right to have their votes counted because of administrative snafus. But I do like old Joe.
There have been a couple of times in my lifetime where a politician put his ideology on hold to do the right thing for America. One was Sen. Barry Goldwater telling Nixon he needed to call it quits. Sadly, there isn't a single Dem willing to set aside their politics in order to get to the truth in these various scandals. Once a liberal (LONG ago), I could no longer lie to myself or accept an ideology that MUST lie to achieve its ends. You'd think today's liberals would figure out that if their ideas were so great, they wouldn't need to obfuscate to sell them to the public. Very sad....
Depends on how politically astute the GOP configures the spending bill. Done properly, Obama could be boxed in and have to sign the bill.
"is" = "if"... my bad.
I've noticed how the POTUS and his minions are now treating Obamacare the same way they treat "global warming"... that the debate is "over". To hear the Dems, ACA is now written in stone and can NEVER be repealed. I've got news for them... constitutional amendments have been repealed... something MUCH harder to accomplish than repealing a law. I don't know that repeal can happen as long as the 'Bamster is in office, but it sure as heck can be defunded is the GOP can take the Senate and hold the House.
