    Seriously, where are the people going to draw the line?

    This nation seems to lack the political intelligence to make good/decent decisions in this Democracy.

    What do you think can be done about this problem?

    Raising intelligence would be the obvious solution, but then it's tough to get people to learn when they think they already know everything.

    What laws?

    What Democracy? America is a Republic.

    And the President does not have the power to either make or abolish laws.

    Obama campaigned on elimination of the Patriot Act--that's what you guys wanted--and he renewed the Patriot Act when it came up for a vote--and he signed off on it.

    So I wouldn't know--you tell me---:badgrin:
