What kind of North Korean are you?

In reference to Patricia Burke’s letter of Jan. 11: “What kind of Americans are you?” To clarify my position, I did not rail against the president. I simply quoted President Obama. He clearly stated, and I quote, “I have an obligation as president to do what I can without Congress.” As an American who carries the Constitution in his jacket pocket daily, I find nowhere in the Constitution where it grants this power to the president. As for Grover Norquist, it appears Patricia would have all those with opposing views rounded up and sent to reeducation camps or to the gas chambers. We do not have a revenue problem, we have a spending problem and all the fools in Washington are spending my money, not theirs. You will notice I stated “all” the fools in Washington. Let me ask the same question of Patricia: What kind of American are you? When’s the last time you read the Constitution? When is the last time you attended a function and said the Pledge of Allegiance? I contend, Patricia, you would like to turn us into the utopia of North Korea where there are no dissenters and all must have the same views of the Dear Leader. John T. Nightingale, Auburn
