just wondering,how many of you think that future presidents should be stripped of some of their powers. i myself think that the president shouldn't be able to pardon anyone at all and to tell you the truth i don't think they should be commander and chief of the armed forces either.they should give that to a military officer.in order for him to be able to declare war though,he should go to the president first and the president would have to go to congress to ask permission to do so,if permission is denied that should be the end of it.

This would be a disaster, hundreds of Presidents in Congress?
