Rules..

According to Webster: rule,  (in context) To exercise control, dominion, or direction over; govern.

                       

I’m the boss – I make the rules

And to think, ..all my life, ..I have believed that it was the Congress that created our laws.

According to Webster: law, A rule of conduct or procedure established by custom, agreement, or authority.

 

According to Webster: pre·am·ble, A preliminary statement, especially the introduction to a formal document that serves to explain its purpose.

Such as the United States Constitution…

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Article I

Section 1

All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.

How about that? Article 1, ..Section 1, of the document, i.e., (our Constitution) ..that has served America for 236 years, ..states quite clearly that our laws shall be made by the Congress.

So what does the President do, ..just what is his job description?

Article 2

Section 2

1: The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States; he may require the Opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in each of the executive Departments, upon any Subject relating to the Duties of their respective Offices, and he shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.

2: He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments.

3: The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session.

Section 3

He shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; he may, on extraordinary Occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in Case of Disagreement between them, with Respect to the Time of Adjournment, he may adjourn them to such Time as he shall think proper; he shall receive Ambassadors and other public Ministers; he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed, and shall Commission all the Officers of the United States.

Section 4

The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors. (Source, the Constitution of the United States of America).

(Sidebar) for those of you who may have missed it? Or simply didn’t understand? The President of the United States, according to (our Constitution) is (legally) pretty much limited to eating breakfast, lunch, and dinner, ..without the (advice and consent) of the Congress.

Our founding fathers, ..men who, ..as “our” history will attest, ..were also quite adept in the field of (organizing communities,) as they made this Nation happen, ..and they made it happen without food stamps.

 

That was then, ..this is now.

Editorial: Keeping it as brief as possible, if America is to survive as America? We the people, ..need to turn this wagon around and return to then…

Think about it, I’ll be back tomorrow
