The First Good Argument I Have Heard for Electing Trump

Walter Olson paraphrasing Paul Horwitz

...mainstream law professors would develop a sudden, strange new respect for constitutional law concepts such as separation of powers and federalism, which tend to serve as checks on the power and ambition of the President and his backers.

    Where's your memory. This is the second one. The first was the large number of federal goverment employees who would retire if Trump got elected.

  2. SamWah:

    Not to mention keeping Hill and Bern out of the WH...and the Supreme Court selections.

    The respect of constitutional concepts would not be new, it was present under the Bush II admin as well. Hillary would be a much better President, though, considering how "diplomatic" Trump is likely to (not) be.

    Ooooh. We can have an experienced war criminal instead of an amateur one. Hang on while I try to control my excitement...

    What's going to be hilarious is when all these doomsayers are proven wrong and Trump ends up being one of the best Presidents in the modern era. The internet will be full of mea culpas from the rightosphere.
