“If you’re the president, if you’re a member of Congress, if you are a TSA agent, the only reason why somebody should listen to what you say, instead of horsewhipping you out of town for your impertinence, is because you exercise power via the Constitution.

You’re a thief, a brigand, an officious busybody, somebody who should be tarred and feathered and run out of town on a rail for trying to exercise power you don’t possess.” — Full Podcast: Glenn Reynolds on Politics, the Constitution, and Technology

What will happen to a nascent dictator standing in the midst of all those dedicated and armed men if and when they decide he no longer is controlled by adherence to his Constitutional oath?
