"By all accounts, Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords is nothing but a sweet woman, moderate in her views compared to many in her party. But here’s where precisely the question of 'where the buck stops' comes in. Is even a Member of Congress — who is, by all accounts, a decent human being — subject to the usages of revolutionary force when that body is comprised of members who daily violate their oath to abide by that Constitution’s limits on their legislative powers? Were there no decent and sweet representatives, in the British Parliament of 1776, who sent armed Redcoats against the rebellious Americans?" (01/11/11)
