Obama: Hey, Maybe I’ll Just Unilaterally Suspend the Law with Respect to Sanctions on Iran While I’m At It

After the Soviet Union fell, Russia implemented a system of limited government (well, limited as regards the Russian experience of government, anyway). Yeltsin — and then Putin — found that the limited government didn’t suit them, and thus the early nineties were marked by this sort of headline, every single month:

Yeltsin Declares Sweeping New Powers

or:

Putin’s Party Votes Him Sweeping New Powers

Well, Putin is now officially a tyrant.

It can’t happen here?

Why can it not happen here? It happens, literally, everywhere else.

But…But…but…we’re different!

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
