McCain says “I’d spy on Americans ,Too.”

“If elected president, Senator John McCain would reserve the right to run his own warrant less wiretapping program against Americans, based on the theory that the president’s wartime powers trump federal criminal statutes and court oversight, according to a statement released by his campaign Monday.”

Perhaps they do? I am not a lawyer, so I couldn’t tell you about that. In this he is following the reasoning of the current administration for breaking the law. However I have seen no report that CONGRESS HAS DECLAIRED WAR. In which case the actions of the administration consist of felonies and need to be addressed by the courts and the American people. Warrent less wiretapping, holding people without charges or trial, signing statements and all the rest of the administrations actions by his own admission consist of felonies. Neither Mr. Bush nor any other person has the right or power to perform these acts without at the very least a declaration of war. Talk about high crimes and misdemeanors. The President has no powers beyond what is given to him by the Constitution and should never have such power. Nor does he or any other elected or appointed official have immunity from the laws of the land including the supreme law of the land which is the Constitution and such treaties as we are bound by.

Perhaps the President can’t be charged with these crimes while in office, but He better be, once his term is over. Either that or the Constitution is just a piece of toilet paper and the US Government has been declared null and void. In which case we are fifty separate nations and free to act independently.
