He Who Lives by Legislation….

Here’s a letter to the Wall Street Journal:

Months after ordering the U.S. military to commence the still-ongoing air strikes in Libya – and, hence, after disproving his initial claim that these strikes would last “days, not weeks” [2] – Pres. Obama, as you report, informed Congress yesterday of “the administration’s view that the Libyan conflict is too limited to require authorization by Congress under the War Powers Act” (“Obama Defends Libya Intervention [3],” June 16).

Can I cite Pres. Obama as an exemplar if I refuse to pay taxes this year because my view is that my income is too limited to require such payment under the Internal Revenue Code?
