    So the voters own it, they let him have it for a while. They can cancel his "lease" too. (Impeachment is another "due process" which can be used to cancel the lease). If you rent an apartment, do you own it?

    The voters can take it away at the end of his term and this "impeachment" is no impeachment and is not following due process.

    Fake news. Repeating something 100 times does not make it true. I asked before what the "due process" was and you were unable to come up with anything.

    Congress gets to make the rules on impeachment. It's pretty simple.

    Anti-vaxxers, responsible for a 30 percent uptick in totally preventable diseases in the world, have blood on their hands. They shouldn't be considered civilized members of society. If they refuse to listen to a century of scientific studies confirming time and time again that vaccination is an unquestionable good for humanity, then it's time for us to start treating anti-vaxxers as what they are: dangerous and worthy of shame and condemnation. If we can't convince anti-vaxxers to change their minds, we must attach enough social stigma to the delusion that agnostics cease to join them.

    But they can't violate Constitutional rights when they do so.

    You'd think a hard core constitutionalist would get that. He doesn't have to like it, just acknowledge its truth.

    You'd think a Constitutionalist would realize that the rights protections in the Constitution always apply and have no exception for impeachment.

    TDS drives people completely out of their minds it seems.

    If this was President Rand we were talking about this forum would be overflowing with outrage.

    They get to pass laws too.

    But in neither case are they empowered to violate due process or any other rights of the accused.

    It would be funny watching all the TDS "libertarians" advocate for tyrannical powers for Congress if it weren't so disgusting.

    Probably. But no matter how far out of our minds they drove us, no constitutionalist would ever call the office of the presidency property.

    A term in office is, just as anything else that belongs to anyone.

    A real Texan would say the Bush family still owns it, and they're just loaning it out for a while.
