Our system of government is set up so that our representatives in Congress can debate and approve legislation that the President proposes. President Obama, having had no success moving his agenda in Congress, has repeatedly utilized executive orders to get around this Constitutional process.
I know you agree that this approach is unacceptable and a threat to our democracy. Scott Brown does not agree. Today he suggested that Obama should consider issuing an executive order revoking citizenship of Americans that we believe may be helping terrorists, stating "this is one executive order that I'd agree with".
The rise of barbaric enemies like ISIS makes it critically important that we do everything within our power to protect our citizens. During times like these good intentions can lead to stripping away of personal liberties.
Make no mistake, anyone found to be aiding terrorists should be brought to swift justice. Our system already allows for that without the stripping away of Constitutional rights of the citizens we are trying to protect.
