“What Trump is doing is unconstitutional” I said to a friend yesterday. I really didn’t know if I was right or wrong legally, but I do know that a president is elected to run the government not shut it down to get what he wants which is not what the polls report the people want.
What I said to my friend, Reich has explicated as only a well-read, well-spoken, and well-written person can. Oh, I know there have been shut-downs in the past. I think everyone of them was a failure of those elected by the people to carry-out their constitutional duties. This shut-down is flashing signs of danger. After reading this, I know specifically why.
When people are in the midst of what will later be seen as a historic crisis, few of them realize it. Looking back they say “ah, there it was. How did we miss it. Why didn’t we demand action?” It takes guts to act in real-time. Please congresspersons, stop this dictator wannabe before his unconstitutional shut-down does more damage to this country.
