Musings on the "Unitary Executive" Fantasy

Didn’t we fight a war to be rid of the “unitary executive” King George III? Wasn’t the entire goal of codifying checks and balances in the charter documents of the new country an attempt to ensure we never again had to deal with a unitary executive? Rather than accept that the notion of a unitary executive is a legitimate, alternate interpretation of the Constitution, maybe we should be working to expose it for what it is–an attempt to restore a ruling pseudo-aristocracy not subject to the rule of law. It is truly unfortunate that the proponents of the unitary executive who purposely manipulate the intent of the founding fathers to suit their needs are aided and abetted by the Nascar/soap opera crowd who don’t have the common decency (or maybe even the ability) to read the charter documents that serve as the basis for our government. It’s time to stop legitimizing these people.
