US Presidency As Accumulative Error

David Swanson, author of Daybreak: Undoing the Imperial Presidency and Forming a More Perfect Union has written a chilling piece of commentary on the state of the American presidency. In many ways it is the story of the US Presidency as accumulative error. Below is an excerpt: ECOND, I LOOKED AT THE POWER OF WAR. Our Constitution wisely placed it in Congress.
