We know for a fact that Hillary will do it, we have a better chance with Trump

I respect your conviction; I simply do not share it.

I think the Donald is serving the same interests that own Clinton, Inc.

Alls I'm saying is, don't be surprised when it turns out to be the same as what you thought you were voting against.

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again No, no...

Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss...

The President "presides" over something; do you know what that is? He/she presides over . . . the US Congress.

President has cohortative power by asking congress to pass specific legislation. Obamacare is a recent example. the President can also veto all other legislation until they pass his. In 7 years, congress has not once overidden a single Obama veto.

But all of this is moot.

Of course the president legislates. He is the chief executive, and everything EXCEPT congress and the courts do what he says. By executive order.

When the EPA decides to declare your farm a "wetland," and forbid you from ever growing crops there again, or even from selling the property(!), They make up their own procedural rules, "as directed by the president." Congress has no say-so.

When the government says the State of Alaska cannot shoot the excess wolves in its forests, that are decimating the remaining caribou herds, is it Congress who limits Alaskan sovereignty? No; it is the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, as directed by the president," in defiance of their own biologists. (true story).

The president doesn't need congress. (S)he has a pen. And a phone.
