Look even if you are for this stupid wall, think about this, at what cost? Are you willing to abandon the constitution, the document you hold up like it was a bible, and to me an agnostic the only bible is Big Book of Science (Fallout: New Vegas) are you willing to throw it all away and give power to a mad narssisistic dictator ?

David French, while not a fan of President Donald Trump, has not been among the conservatives and ex-Republicans who completely turned their backs on the GOP in the face of a reality show White House. He will often lash out at liberals when he thinks they take criticism of Trump and the administration too far, and he has been a vocal advocate of continuing to support the party, regardless of qualms voters may have with the president.

But on Friday, in the face of Trump’s blatant power grab in the form of a national security declaration designed to secure funding for a border wall, French was outraged at the White House’s breach of executive authority.

The text of Trump’s declaration is a “contemptuous document,” he said in a new essay for National Review. “It’s the proclamation of a monarch, not an argument by a president. And it should fail in court.”
