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.

That a president shouldn't be able to declare war so easy. I understand there extreme circumstances but if a president says "we're going to war cause they have WMD's" and then lo and behold there are no WMD's then he should be impeached. Moral of the story is there shouldn't be a shadow of a doubt before going to war.

*Disclaimer* I do not always think I'm right, I do not have a problem admitting I'm wrong, and I don't consider my opinion to be "fact". If I don't write IMO in front of everything I say or I don't tuck my tail between my legs everytime someone disagrees with me it's simply cause...I mean what I say. I don't say something unless I believe it to be true. So if someone tries to police my opinion or pick an arguement over something trivial all I'll simply say is "read the fine print" I also don't care If I make a grammatical or spelling error. Thank you, have a nice day, Hakuna Matata, Live long and Prosper.
