President Thomas Jefferson said his “oath to protect the constitution” REQUIRED him to refuse to enforce the Sedition Act at “every stage.”
He not only pardoned those convicted under it when he assumed office, he also ordered his district attorneys to stop prosecutions because he could not permit the continued enforcement of a law he BELIEVED, but was not yet “ruled” unconstitutional.
The so called “Enforce the Law Act of 2014″ passed by the imperial house of representatives this week flies in the face of what Thomas Jefferson taught us.
NO. The president should not just blanket-enforce ALL laws of congress.
